My Experience : 


Revlon colorstay 24 hrs make up comes in a transparent glass bottle with a black colored plastic lid. It has a pump dispenser which is very sturdy and dispenses right amount of product every time. I have traveled taking it in my bag. But it didn’t make a mess. So packaging is travel friendly too.

Shade and texture-

I am reviewing the shade warm golden which is a good match for medium skin tone. I have yellow toned medium skin and it matches me quite well.

The texture is very smooth and soft. It blends easily on my skin. It doesn’t dry out very quickly so it is a plus point as it gives some time for blending.

Performance, coverage and staying power-

Now come to the main point of review. I dispense a small amount of this on my hand and then apply it on my face with Real Techniques buffing brush. It blends very well and gives a smooth effect on my face. This foundation is not so runny but it doesn’t feel so heavy on my oily face. I can use it throughout the year.

It gives medium to almost full coverage and hides small imperfections of face easily without any concealer.

This foundation contains spf 15 but I don’t use it without sunscreen in the daytime. Though it contains spf, yet it photographs well. It makes me look glowy in the photographs. It stays on me around 9-10 hours if the weather is not so humid. But I didn’t try it more than that time. I wore it at around 9.30 am and returned home around 7 pm and the foundation was still there and when I started to remove it, there was moderate amount of foundation came off in the cleaning pad. It doesn’t help to control oil on my face and I have to set it with some good compact powder.

What I like– 🙂 

  • Easily available
  • Packaging is travel friendly
  • Price is affordable
  • Texture is very soft and smooth
  • Comes with a pump dispenser
  • Staying power is long
  • Specially formulated for oily/ combination skin
  • Seems to be waterproof as it doesn’t wash out in water
  • Photographs well
  • Requires very small amount for one time use
  • Doesn’t oxidize on face

What I dislike- 🙁 

  • Starts to melt in very hot and humid weather
  • It is not too light to use and it is better for evening
  • Though it contains spf 15 but this is not enough for sun protection (personally I feel if they contain spf they should contain it in high amount for use in day time. But absence of spf is better than less amount as spf tends to give white caste)
