Review: Revlon Colorstay Aqua Finishing Powder in Translucent

1 Aug

Hello everyone! A great product for summer so let’s get on with the review!

Product Description: A finishing powder with bursts of water infused into the powder.

Review: First off Revlon has another similar powder but it is marketed as a foundation, this one is marketed as a finishing powder the kind that you put on after you put on your foundation. I think it works great as a finishing powder and the burst of water on your face feels really nice in the summer when the weather is sweltering outside. Great for touch ups and since it is translucent it goes well with many different skintones. There is no scent as for staying power there is quite a bit I still have to reapply but it stays on for an average of 4-6 hours on a hot day. Texture is a nice silky powder that glides over the skin offering no coverage. Overall a really good product and even the brush that it comes with is a nice addition.

Cost: $15-20CDN @ drugstore and supermarkets

Would I recommend this product? I totally would recommend this product but come winter I don’t know if I want to use this as the powder effects is for cooling. Cool into cool… not sure how that will work out but will be testing once winter comes.

Review: Revlon Colorstay Foundation for Oily Skin

24 Jul

The ever popular foundation used on Youtube and the most loved I suppose. Sorry for the flash and my shade is in Sand Beige.

Review: I have not as much experience with foundation as most people would have if they were a makeup artist but I have learned. This was my first liquid foundation and man was it hard to determine what foundation technique I should use with it. I ended up doing the stippling method, foundation brush, and the sponge method never liking any of them but the stippling method (but it was a pain to clean the brush takes 2 days for it to fully dry). Even though this foundation was pretty much liquid it gave the coverage required (medium to full) and worked as all those people on Youtube have said. Drugstores do have a good range of colours for people of different skin tones and this colour matched me really well. For the oily skin formula it did control oil a bit but at the end of the day you look like you have a sort of healthy glow due to the oil. Things I didn’t like about it was that it could get very thick and cakey especially in the summer. I like the natural feeling where you can’t feel the foundation on your face but this just wasn’t one of them.

Cost: $15 – 19CDN wherever available

Would I recommend this product? I would recommend this for those oily people in the wintertime (who likes wearing a full face of makeup in the summer?) . Though for me I would only reserve this foundation for special events (full coverage) and wintertime.
