When Revlon thought about the name of this product, they really meant business as this really is ColorStay and more.

At lest than AED 120 (USD 32+/-) for a 30ML Full Coverage Foundation, ColorStay from Revlon gives you more bang for your buck!

Lets get down to the basics. ColorStay comes in a sleek bottle, which can fit in a small to medium size vanity kit. The bottle does not come with a pump which is great because you can get all the product out. It stays on for 16 hours (a good alternative to Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation), has SPF 6 and I believe has 23 shades to choose from. By now, you already know what I do to to test the staying power of foundations. I did not retouch the whole day just to see it it stays flawless and it did. It claims to be trasnfer resistant, so I did my Kleenex test. Very little transferred to the Kleenex. It does have a little scent which is almost medicinal but dont this sway you from owning this product.

ColorStay being a full coverage foundation is best for women who have oily skin but dry skinnes women can also benefit from this product's amazing coverage and staying power by moisturising really well.

When applying full coverage foundation I normally just use my fingers as using a foundation brush makes the base look more opaque, which is not required when you use this foundation. One word of caution though, when you apply ColorStay, make sure to blend immediately as it has a tendency to set on your skin rather fast which may result to hard time in blending.

I recommend this product to women who are always on the go, who hardly have time to retouch, those who have some minor scars from pimples/blemishes because it provides the right amount of coverage.

I have to say that I am pleasantly surprised with Revlon ColorStay and this is definitely going to be a mainstay in my MUA Kit!
