Revlon Color Stay Makeup

9tech score

What is it?

Revlon color stay makeup is a foundation formula that delivers flawless, all day coverage. It comes in two formulas to suit the following skin types:

  • Combination/Oily

  • Normal/Dry

What I liked about the Revlon Color Stay makeup.

  • The first thing I liked about the Revlon Color Stay makeup was the pump bottle, it was easy to use with no mess.
  • I generally get to try and work with many foundations, and I also taught makeup artistry and special effects for a few years, so finding a foundation that lasts is like finding the holy grail of makeup. I can truly say that I was surprised to find that one application in the day was all I needed. I constantly have to powder in  the course of the day however that was not necessary with the Revlon Color stay makeup.
  • The range comes a  variety of colours to suit almost any skin colour so the likelihood of you finding your shade is high. One of my pet hates about foundations is when a brand decides to only bring out a very limited range in colours and many ladies are left with having to buy two different shades that they would need to mix together to get their perfect shade.
  • It has an SPF 15 factor, which means that besides making you look fabulous, its also protecting your skin.

What I did not like about the Revlon Color Stay makeup.

  • The first thing I liked about this product was that it had a pump bottle, however as the foundation was coming to the end, I could not pump out the last bit, however the top does screw off so if you are anything like me, you can still manage to scrape out the last bit.
  • Removal of the product at the end of the day was a little struggle, but on the upside, it lasted all day.

Final Thoughts

The Revlon Color stay makeup definitely gets a thumbs up from me. If you do have pigmentation, I would advise in investing in a separate concealor, I found that even after layering I still needed to use my concealor.

After owning an internationally accredited makeup school for many years, there are certain attributes that one seeks in their choice of makeup. I was pleasantly surprised after trying out the Revlon Ultra HD lip colour. Looking at the product, I would have assumed that it was a typical lipgloss, and because I never apply lip gloss to my lips, I would have passed it by. However, only after trying on the lip colour did I notice that in fact, the application was smooth but most importantly the colour was rich and intense. The finished result was that of a lipstick. I loved that I did not have to apply many layers to achieve the results I required.

What was remarkable is the staying power. One application was all I needed and the colour stayed on my lips the entire day, baring in mind that I ate, spoke and drank as I usually do.



The only thing that I did not enjoy about the product is that although it says “matte” it does not finish off as such. My lips did remain slightly glossy, a little more glossy than I usually wear my lipsticks, however for those that prefer a slight glossy lipstick, this is perfect for you. I do have larger lips and I am more conscious about it than most people.

The colour variations are quite limited, covering mostly those that have a warm undertone.
