A few months ago I went looking for a new foundation at CVS and Revlon Color Stay with Soft Flex caught my eye. I noticed that this foundation was formulated for skin types- combination / oily skin and Normal / Dry Skin. I was looking forward to this because usually mid-day I have to pull out an oil blotting sheet, and when I am out at events I don’t want to worry about the sheen on my face.
By mistake I purchased Normal / Dry skin, though I didn’t notice after a few times I had used it. Even though I purchased the wrong skin type and a few shades too lite (no big deal, using a darker powder and bronzer made my skin look even) I really liked this product. I had minimal shine and it lasted for hours. I went back a few days ago determined to get my correct color and skin type. I thought I was a medium beige (240) but I am actually Natural Tan (330), I know, it seems like a big difference but I noticed that the shade names aren’t completely true to the actual color. I noticed three different colors looked almost the same but the undertones varied.
Now that I have the correct one for my skin type Revlon Color Stay with Soft Flex will definitely be a repeat purchase. The light weight formula is perfect for all-day wear, and it has SPF. It doesn’t cake or crease and I love that just a little bit of this product evens out my skin tone. I put on the foundation for the first time at about 7:00am and didn’t get home until about 10:30pm that night. So its claim that it lasts 24 hours- I believe it. I was so pleased to see that I was not excessively oily nor did I have a noticeable sheen. If it was an event night I would have quickly blotted with an oil sheet and dusted a little powder just to freshen the look. Definitely worth the price of almost $15.
The long-wear capability of this foundation is perfect for extra long days and definitely for a night out dancing.
Grab a mirror and hold up the colors you think are your match next to your forehead and neck and take a moment to really look at the shades for the one that fits you best.
