Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup + GIVEAWAY

Hi Lovelies!

As promised, a review and giveaway about the newly raved Revlon Product. I contemplated  whether I should wait for this to be released locally but I figured that its already available from local online stores so why not, right? At least there's a way you can get your hands on them. I still don't know when is the local release.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup

220 Nude (for me, I'm an NC25-NC30)
& and 240 Natural Beige (for the giveaway, NC30-NC35)

Let's go straight ahead to the review! 

Packaging-wise, they've managed to make this foundation look like its from a high-end brand (housed in a hefty glass jar with a screw cap opening). 

Something similar to the Chanel packaging. Take a look...

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup vs. Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre (Natural Finishing Powder)

I think the Chanel tub is not made with glass (unlike this Revlon product), more of a translucent plastic tub. Give and take a few changes, and they're very similar. I can also say that the Revlon one is more hefty even from the large Chanel Poudre Universelle Libre. They did a good job with the packaging.

But one thing that made this not so hygienic is the dipping-your-fingers-in-the-jar thingy. This is associated with the accumulation of bacteria-causing-zits in the jar. Moreover, never dip your brush in the jar! haha Unless you have a very perfect skin that never breaks out easily. Lucky you! 

I suggest the use of a spatula to get some product out or if you're like me who's too lazy to grab a spatula, always make sure your fingers are clean before dipping them in.

Whipped Creme Product

The creme is airy and lightweight compared to the previous Colorstay Liquid Foundation. It may appear thicker than it really is because its not your typical runny liquid foundation hence the name whipped creme makeup. Much forgiving than the liquid variant: easier to blend, doesn't dry up as quickly and doesn't cake as much. 

Perfect for those with a skin type like mine, oily/combination including the normal skin. You can go as far as 2 applications (pea-sized amout) without looking cakey. I achieved a beautiful sheer coverage with the first application and a medium coverage on the second. Tried going as far as the third application but it already caked on me. For a daily basis, I prefer applying it once to achieve a sheer coverage and a demi-matte finish. 

Revlon says you can achieve a full coverage with this and I don't disagree with that! Yes you can but who wants a cakey looking foundation?

Those with dry skin can also use this but be careful on applying too much because it has a tendency to cake up on dehydrated skin. Be sure to use a very good moisturizer prior to application so you can also go as far as  two applications for a medium coverage. 

(1) Creme Product
(2) Slightly blended
(3) Well blended

The Colorstay liquid variant is more matte than this one. I don't agree with Revlon when they say this foundation gives a matte finish, I say more of a demi-matte. And totally not agree with the 24 hour wear, on me its 6hrs tops and I need to blot my face within the day. Besides, who would want to wear their foundation for a full 24hrs??? 

Comes in 16 shades. In choosing the right shade, be sure not to refer on how it looks in the jar! It appear waaaay lighter from the outside.

I bought mine for 550php from Cosmetic Alley on a preorder basis. But I didn't have to wait for a month to get my hands on them. Great service! :)

I give this foundation an overall rating of 4/5.
