Revlon ColorStay SoftFlex Foundation for Oily/Combination Skin

I have heard so many people rave about this foundation, so when i saw it on sale at CVS for 50% off PLUS i had a $4 coupon off any Revlon purchase of $10 or more - i knew i had to try it!! I ended up getting this foundation for less than $3 which is a total steal.
I bought this foundation in 150 Buff.
not to runny, not too thick
medium-full coverage, usually i dont even need concealer
blends very well into my skin
no scent
nice packaging
long lasting
lightweight, feels like nothing is on my face
controls my oil
doesnt "melt" in heat
has SPF 6
This is liquidy enough to be in a pump bottle, and would be alot easier and more sanitary to use if it were. However this isnt a huge issue.
Looks cakey at first no matter now light i apply it, that fades quickly though but i find that if i apply a powder over this it continues to look cakey all day. So its actually just better used alone with no finishing powder on top.
I have tried soo many new foundation lately, mainly because they were uber cheap, but this one (alone with Rimmel Clean Finish) is my favorite! The fact that i dont have to use concealer or a finishing powder takes 2 steps out of my routine and actually makes it quicker.
Its been 90-100 degrees here lately. My favorite thing about this is that i can wear it outside even when its super hot and humid and it never feels gross, melts, or wears off. The shade looks a tad too light/yellow for me but because the foundation blends so seamlessly it actually ends up matching me perfectly. I would highly recommend this! Its also made for normal and dry skin also.


  1. I love this foundation I use my beauty blender and its perfect =)
