Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Combination Skin Natural Tan Review, Swatches

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Natural Tan Review, Swatches
Hi everyone!
How are you all? I am going to review Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily/combination skin in Natural Tan. This Revlon foundation is formulated for oily combination skin and claims to give a light weight feeling with 24 hours wear time. I got this color in natural tan since I have realized that with Revlon even if you’re a medium to fair skinned person, the foundation which will match closely would be the darker shades that Revlon makes. The same foundation is available in other formulation which is for dry to normal skin. Earlier I used to swatch shades like beige, sun beige, Ivory with Revlon and they used to be extremely light for my skin. But this time even though I had ordered it online, I got the correct shade which is natural tan.

Review Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily/combination skin Natural Tan
The Revlon Colorstay Foundation comes in a pump packing which I will definitely prefer over the normal packaging any time, since this is extremely easy and hygienic to use. The cap could have been a bit tighter as it comes off just like that. Don’t know if that is with this one or with every bottle from this range. I got this shade Natural Tan.

Natural tan is more of a color for wheatish skin tone. I am between whitish to fair. Actually my jawline is wheatish and my cheeks and forehead is fair, if that makes sense. So, for me the foundation was a close match. Let me tell you one thing, hopefully some of you will relate to that. Earlier, I used to pick foundations very light and when I used to apply them, they would look ashy horribly on my jaw line, but it would just match perfectly over the cheeks, and I use to panic not figuring out this simple thing that I have a dual tone complexion. :D haha And all that happened because at the time of choosing foundation, I have this thought that see, I am fair so I should pick the lighter colors but wait what about the lower half of the face, that poor thing used to look ashy always, until I realized, it was simple but making mistakes with the foundations is very common so, now, I know what to do. :D C’mon we all have done that.

Anyways, moving on, this natural tan color as I mentioned is a color for medium or what we call as wheatish skin color. But I noticed that this has slight pink undertones to it which I absolutely hate, Yes, I do. I know that it is to balance the yellow undertones, but I like our yellow undertones so now ways, I am going to put a pinky toned foundation and neutralize that. But, thankfully when I blend and layer over the skin that isn’t noticeable at all.
The foundation is slightly on the thicker side and would be able to impart medium to high coverage. In fact as it is not overtly thick it can also be used as to put a sheer layer just to even out the skin a bit. I used that it worked well that way. Blending is not too difficult with this Revlon Colorstay Foundation. It seeps into the lines and gives a smoother looking skin though priming the face would be better to even out the skin for pores and fine lines especially under the eyes which also makes the concealers to stay a lot longer without getting crease badly.

As this Revlon Colorstay Foundation says that it is light weight, yes, it is and it will not give a matte looking finish but I could feel slight, very slight dewiness which is good even for combination oily skin. This foundation also has SPF 15. I have wore this foundation for 8 plus hours and it was there in its glory and I don’t have any complaints except that when the weather is hot, it melts and my skin get oily on the T zone again. It performs better when I have my NYX photo loving primer before applying this foundation. For the summers and for winters, I would just apply the primer over the T zone so that that should not get oily.
I would recommend this for the oily to combination skinned girls. It is affordable and is quite decent for our skin type. But would still suggest to go and check the color at the counter. 


Rating Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily/combination skin Natural Tan: 3.75 out of 5 (-1 for slight heaviness on layering and slight dewy and loose cap else thumbs up)

Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily/combination skin is ideal or daily wear for oily to combination skin. It can be layered to get high coverage and cover flaws decently. Even though it has very slight pink undertones but once done with blending that is not visible at all. It blends well and feels light weight though when layered again, this may feel a bit heavy especially in summers. It is waterproof and sweat proof up to an extent that will not make it budge easily at least. The price is affordable so is the availability.
