As one of those people who prefers to splurge on base makeup, I must say, this is a remarkable foundation. I had a photoshoot coming up and, having forgotten that all of my foundations have some sort of SPF in them, I stopped by CVS to pick up an SPF-free foundation to use in a pinch so I wouldn't have a white cast in the pictures. I was very pleasantly surprised. True to the name "whipped creme", the foundation has a very smooth texture, and feels unexpectedly light on the face, not heavy at all as I thought it would be. I was also surprised by how pigmented this was; you can easily achieve full coverage with this foundation in no time at all. Because of how "rich" this foundation feels, I expected my combination-oily skin to be an oil slick within an hour, but I actually found that this kept my oiliness under control pretty well. I suppose my only gripe would be the packaging - it comes in a heavy glass jar that isn't particularly travel-friendly. I honestly only expected to wear this once, but I now find myself reaching for this for all my special occasions or whenever I feel like I need more coverage because I know this will get the job done both quickly and well. This is a high-quality drugstore product that brings stiff competition to its higher-end rivals.
I just LOOOOVE the coverage of this foundation. Out of the jar, it looks quite thick but the best way to apply this is with your fingers. It blends like a dream and the coverage is so amazing, you can skip powder/concealer. The longevity is no doubt amazing. This is perfect for days my skin isn't looking to good. I just don't care for the packaging - it's heavy and inconvenient for travel and you actually don't get much product. The only con is it can emphasize dry patches/cake up if you don't exfoliate and moisturizer. But regardless, I love it so much!
I adore this whipped foundation! previously I was using Mac studio fix fluid which I also love but in my personal opinion Revlon whipped foundation is way cheaper and you can get better results! the Revlon whipped gives you medium/full coverage, super flawless/airbrush effect, and its also very hydrating so this would be amazing for people with dry skin. I have too give this two thumbs up, and I would recommend this to anyone.
Overall I can see why some people love this foundation. Its just not the right consistency for my skin. I had trouble with the shade as well. Got mine at Ulta. I hated to return it. But it would not be something I could use. I have been using more of the cream in pan type foundations. I mostly just spot cover. So maybe that's why this didn't work for me. Nice product though. Worth a try. Color range could be better. Packaging was good. Price decent. Revlon really has a lot of nice quality products.
I came across this foundation by pure luck and I am sooo glad I did. My skin is sensitive-acne prone and oily on my t-zone. I had been trying other expensive and heavy foundations that wouldn't do half the job of what this one is doing. It covers blemishes very well! And as for the color, I can't believe I was able to find one that matched my yellow undertone skin.
I've always been a fan of Revlon foundations, I love the Colorstay whipped because I have acne scars all over my cheeks but this covers them up quite well. True Beige matches my skin tone perfectly (I'm a NW40) and I was surprised how natural it looked and how well it blended when I first applied it to my face, (I find it easiest to just use my fingers) my friends even complemented me saying that my skin looked so much clearer! I do like the 'whipped' mousse like texture and the semi-matte finish that isn't too heavy. I've just purchased my second jar and haven't had any problems with break outs, clogged pores etc.
I do agree with the other reviewers here that the packaging isn't very good, it's contained in a heavy jar and not much product is supplied, as well as it's inconvenience for travel.
Overall I do believe it is a great foundation, I prefer this over the regular Colorstay.
This is like putting fleshtoned Crisco on my face. NEVER sets even with powder or setting spray, and as such, transfers onto everything. This has to be the worst foundation I've ever purchased.
I love Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation. Previously, I wore Mac Face and Body until I ran out. I liked face and body because of how natural it looked on the skin but it was a little too dewey for me and made me shiney as the day progressed. I still wore it through the summer because it was pricey but regardless of the temperature or how I set it, I always saw shine coming through. Anyway, in came Revlon Colorstay Whipped. I thought I would try this because of the creme consistency. I have 30+ skin that is getting to be a little on the dry side. The regular revlon colorstay was not creamy enough but this one rocked my world. As many have noted the packaging sucks. But I think if Revlon changed the packaging they may have to change the consisteny and that scares me. The last thing I need on this foundation is a reformulation. I bought it in caramel and through the glass it looks a little muddy. I was hoping for something darker but after you apply this foundation, it automatically transforms to the color of your skin. Weird. I have tried this with and without primer and got about 12-14 hours of no shine. I'm rarely ever out more that 14 hours at a time so that works. In fact, my skin dries out a little with this but I'd take that over shiney T zone anyday. I just make sure I use a creamier moisturizer underneath with SPF of course. The price is a bit steep. It was about $11 at Target. It's more like a $9 foundation especially for the amount that you get. I use clean fingers to apply this. I've tried a a brush and sponge and it didn't spread easily. At this time, I'm afraid to set it with powder because I don't want to exacerbate the dryness I get with this but I'm willing to experiment. The thing I love most the whipped is the it makes my skin look poreless and that my friends is priceless.
I like Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation (it's currently my HG), but no matter how I apply it clogs my pores and leaves my face looking cakey by the end of the day. I thought this might be a lighter, better alternative. It was not. First off it is pretty expensive for drugstore foundation (I paid $13.99 at CVS). The packaging is bulky and heavier than I would prefer cause I like to carry my makeup with me. The texture is very soft and silky and it feels great on my skin. It is difficult to apply though and when I was in natural lighting I noticed how orange the color looked even though I chose the same shade I use for liquid Colorstay. After a couple hours at work I noticed my face was pretty oily and my pores looked huge. I was very disappointed cause the original Colorstay lasts about 9 hours before doing that. I took this off as soon as I got home and returned it. I really wanted to like this product but I just couldn't. If you like Colorstay but find it is too heavy on your skin you might try this, but it definitely doesn't last as long or have the same nice matte finish.
This foundation is amazing. First off, I got it for 12 bucks at Target which is a great price. I love the packaging, looks high end and is easy to access. The texture is pretty thick, but blends out so evenly and well. Its weird, you'll put on a little bit and next thing you know your whole face is covered. It gives nice coverage, probably medium to full. It doesn't look cakey, and works well with my combination skin (doesn't stop all oil but doesn't make it worse either). The only bummer is that you can't see the color until you buy it. I'm an NC15 in mac, well maybe NC20ish now because I've gotten darker since I wore mac. But anyway my skin is pretty light and I got the shade "buff" in the colorstay whipped and it matches perfectly. Overall, this makes my skin look really good and that is saying something because I have really weird textured skin and a lot of redness. I like this a lot and definitely suggest it
