This is a FABULOUS product for ladies with oily or combination skin. My mother and I are both combo ladies with huge pores and we have tried for years to find something that wouldn't slide off our skin or have our pores eat it. Well, this is it. We have both received so many compliments on our skin since using it. Now, I did not like regular Colorstay because I felt it was very paint-like. Revlon whipped is bouncier and lighter, in my opinion. You only need very little product to swirl over the face for great coverage. I repeat, VERY little product. Do not try to apply it like regular Colorstay. It covers up pores, combats oilyness, and stays on. The best part? It's the first foundation I've tried that doesn't require a primer. That is not an easy feat since makeup usually slides right off my skin. Oh, and it has yellow tones in many of their colors for a natural look. Recommended.
I was skeptical about trying this, since the regular Colorstay foundation always looked flaky and awful on my dry skin. I'm glad I did try it, though - this is now my HG foundation! You only need a small amount to get good coverage, and it's definitely buildable if you need a lot. I have pretty dry skin, and most foundations look cakey and flake on me, as well as fade away (even with powder on top). This foundation blends beautifully and looks flawless - I can hardly tell I've any makeup on. On top of all that, the stuff stays on ALL DAY. I set mine with Rimmel Stay Matte powder, and the foundation doesn't move at all. I frequently work 12 hour days, and when I get home my makeup still looks perfect. I'm in love, and I highly recommend it to dry skinned girls like me.
Love love love this foundation. After Chanel discontinued the Pro Lumiere foundation, I tried many many others, and while many looked ok initially, by the end of the day I looked like I hadn't bothered.
Many have commented that the color selection isn't great; I think that the problem is that it's almost impossible to test, as the only tester in stores near me is Nude. I guess lots of people are nude. I am not. So I guessed and happily guessed correctly for me.
Lovely "slip", goes on really well and the best part is that it lasts for hours. I haven't tested 24 hours because I'm usually in bed by 10, but overall 8 - 12 solid hours suits me. Very happy and will definitely repurchase. Would prefer a pump, but will cope.
I wear this on days when I need a lot of coverage. I wear the lightest shade and the color is a bit strange, very pink. I looove the texture and staying power and the jar isn't convenient but it's nice to have on your vanity table. Has a flawless finish and to correct the pinky tones I use a warm powder (true match 02 warm) and I could understand how it could get a little dry. Blends beautifully. Sucks you can't try it before you buy it, because the colors are a little funky. This would get a 5 if the colors were better.
Oh I used to love my colorstay liquid, now this has surprised me ! its even better. Super nice coverage, great shade selection and leaves skin smooth and silky. Definetely a drugstore favorite.
I found this product to be just okay. I will continue to use the jar I already have, but I won't repurchase another one when I run out. The positives are that Whipped Creme does cover well (a medium to full coverage) and is long lasting. However, I feel like it makes my skin (which is dry) look rather dull. It might work better for those without dry skin? Additionally, while the packaging is pretty, it is clunky and heavy, and the jar is much bigger than it needs to be to store the amount of product you get.
I'm so torn on this product. I have worn high end foundation for the past 25 years, but had to try this because of the great reviews.
- I love the texture, it's pure luxury
- I like the smell
- you can adjust the coverage depending on how you apply and blend, sheer with fingers to full with a brush
- I like the staying power. I wore it to bed just to see how it looked in the morning. Weird, I know, but it still looked good and there was no transfer on the pillow
- Packaging, you will either love or hate it. I like to travel with mine, and the bulky glass container is just not great. If they put this in a pump it would be great.
-The color selection. I just can't find a perfect color. I am fair with red undertones and so far 3 of the shades I would use in other revlon products don't work, being either too light or having a grey cast. I'm determined to make it work, so I'm going to keep playing with it.
At the end of the day, this foundation looked really bad under my eyes in a way no foundation ever has. And I also noticed a handful of little whiteheads.
I love this foundation! Its the best I tried so far. It stays put all day, doesnt oxidize and makes my skin look close to flawless! I even had my guy friend telling me: you have such a nice skin colour! What? With my oily pimply scarred skin? It covers all the imperfections beautifully. I never got any compliments with any other products. My HG!
I want to love this foundation so much.
I have combo skin and flutter around an NC20 but with more neutral undertones.
This foundations applies beautifully with a damp beauty blender or a 187 type duo fiber brush. I find the staying power to be decent although I do think it takes a while to set completely. The finish is satin, which is what I prefer
Here is where the problem lies: None of the colors work for me. Usually in the original Colorstay I wear buff and warm it up with a bronzer. I have tried this version in both sand beige and nude. Nude is way too pink. Sand Beige would be perfect but it reads so gray and ashy on me. For someone who has a very yellow chest I simply can't get away with wearing a grey foundation. I have tried different powders and bronzers and nothing makes the color right.
Unfortunately I had to answer that I won't buy again. Maybe I'll update this review if I find a better shade
I wanted to love this as much as I love the original colorstay, but it wasn't meant to be. I won't say it's bad, but I just don't like it. I wore it for a week but once the novelty of the "whipped creme" wore off, I realized this wasn't the foundation for me.
PROS: It smells better than the original colorstay, the odd texture feels soft on the skin, it is a bit easier to work with, and has typical colorstay coverage; medium to full. That's about it for the good.
CONS: The color selection is simply ridiculous. I tried Rich Ginger, since the rest were either too light or too dark, and it left my skin looking flat and lifeless. I don't understand why that shade is so dull. Also, for some reason I had a hard time making my blush and bronzer stick on top of it. Oh and the packaging! It's ridiculous. But that's pretty self explanatory by looking at the product photos. But worst of all, IT TRANSFERS! I know. Shocking considering it is a colorstay product. That's my favorite part about the original formula; once it's on, it's on for the rest of the day. Even with a setting powder and liquid, this product is not rub-proof.
OVERALL: Not terrible, but not worth it either. This product made me realize why I love the original so much. I won't be tempted to stray again.
