Cream makeup is suppose to be more hydrating and better for dry skin. Nope. This foundation exaggerated every dry patch I had. It's very very heavy, and feels almost like wet chalk when you dry and take it off. However, the staying power is amazing, as I'm still trying to scrub this stuff off two days later. If you don't have dry skin and don't mind a heavier makeup, I'm sure this would be great for you.
basically any type of foundation i wear on my acne prone skin tends to get oily and begins to just slip off and makes my face look like a joke. i just bought this a day ago and i can say I'm very pleased with how well it went on and covered!!! it also lasted on my skin until i was ready to wash it off! now thats a FIRST! the packaging is >alright< but it is a bit on the small size for the price. i do like that its a tub because i get to dip my concealer brush in there to get the right amount without making a mess or wasting product. [this isn't for you if you don't clean your brushes daily..] if I'm still pleased with this product by the time i finish it, i will repurchase [:
Background: I have combination skin (very oily but also flaky in spots) that's very acne-prone, and have a history of breakouts from foundation. I've been using this foundation almost daily for several months.
I usually apply this foundation with a flat-top brush, stippling it on rather than buffing. I can get full, even coverage quickly this way, but it uses quite a bit of product. Once dry, this foundation has a very natural "skin" finish - somewhere between matte and dewy, and not cake-y at all. I still get breakthrough shine during the day, but not as much as with other foundations I've tried. Amazingly, this foundation doesn't break me out at all, yay!
I don't have many complaints with this foundation. I've noticed a semi-strong "earthy", makeup-y, sort of smell for about half an hour after application. I also don't love the packaging - it looks nice, but is heavy and unwieldy, and the frosted glass made it hard to pick out the right color in-store.
Overall I think this is a HG product for me right now - full coverage, natural finish, no breakouts, easy to find, and not too expensive! I will definitely repurchase when my jar runs out.
I wanted to try something similar to ColorStay, but a little lighter. This fits the bill, and I like the finish a lot better than the regular ColorStay. I'm really acne-prone and this foundation does not break me out. However, this foundation seems to oxidize on me fairly quickly and I really hate the heavy jar it comes in.
Since I'm on Retin-A, I need something to cover my redness but not show flakes. I find that I get the right med-full coverage I want by warming the creme in my fingers and patting... No rubbing, no brushes, just patting. The silicone helps smooth the foundation out, too. Took off one lippie for packaging.
Boo. Am very comfortable with Caramel (CS combo/oily) and/or Rich Ginger (PhotoReady "regular"), depending on the time of year (NC 42). It so happens that *neither* shade works for me in this formula. I don't know why not and don't have the patience necessary to keep looking. Btw, I can't wear the Rich Ginger in the CS (too light and too opaque) or the Caramel in the PR (looked a very, very muddy gray).
Overall the Revlon Whipped Foundation is overall a 7/10. The color i use 220 Nude Nu is a perfect color match for my skin and blends in easily. The coverage of the foundation is alright but it does defiantly not last for "24 hours " as it should. The other problem is i have only had this product for a few weeks and its almost empty so if your budgeting i would not recommend this product. I would overall buy this product again though as it works well with my skin and doesn't make it oily.
I have used the liquid colorstay formula and that def has better oil control. In comparison, even after wearing it on for more than 10hrs, it still looks fresh. The whipped creme version looks softer and more natural on. It lasts for a shorter time, about 7-8 hours and the oil control isn't as good. However, because it looks so good on the skin, I don't mind so much. There isn't any noticeable scent to this unlike the liquid colorstay which has a strong paint scent. This also feels lighter in texture than the liquid version although it gives just a tad lighter coverage than the liquid one. I typically use only one layer all over the face and go over prOblem areas by dabbing it on and using it as a concealer. It doesn't look cakey at all. Even in hot weather places like Singapore or cold winter in Korea, this foundation held up fine. It doesn't feel oily when applied even though it's a cream texture and feels light on the skin. After 2-3 mins of applying it, my skin feels smooth to touch and there isn't any transfer when I lay on my bf's shoulder or chest. This has medium-full coverage. I've tried applying with my bare fingers but I still prefer to use a wet sponge to sheer it out a lil.. If I need more coverage, I'll go for 2nd layer. Light layers work better with this foundation. :) overall I like it for it's natural finish and feel.
Very impressed by this foundation. Prior to this I used Bareminerals (Golden Medium) and Nars Sheer Matte (Stromboli). I wanted something with a bit more coverage and more staying power and this was a great find through YouTube. Bought it in Warm Golden - 320. Its an okay match, not enough yellow for my skin tone.
I have applied it with my fingers, Sonia Kashuk's Flat Synthetic Multi Purpose Brush and an F80. All work well. It applies easily, its blend-able, and feels great on the skin. It really does look natural on the skin while providing medium coverage in one layer. This has a very slight sheen but becomes or is for the most part matte. Odor isnt strong at all. I smell a faint play doh like smell.
Does stay upwards of 8 hrs on me. Its a great base for my blush because with my prior foundations my blush is gone early afternoon and with this my blush is still there at the end of my workday.
Packaging is very heavy and bulky makes me think thats why Im paying $13. But its a better price point than BM or Nars.
I LOVE this stuff. I bought it in sand beige. Im a nw20. the color almost matches perfect but these are very neutral tones. so I warm it up with my powder I use to set it. the consistency is so nice this stuff for me could easily pass as a high end foundation. I've always liked Revlon brand though out of any other drug store brands. Ive got clog prone combo skin and this stuff hasn't broke me out. Good staying power medium coverage. my new favorite
