Review of Revlon ColorStay Stay Natural Powder by thupham2
First and foremost, this has very impressive oil control. I have put a lot of powders to their graves because they failed to control my uncontrollable oily skin but this, however, defied all odds.
Second, it lasts for long time. I find that I repowder my face every 4-5 hours with this powder on as opposed to my usual 2-3 hours with other drugstore brands.
Thirdly it "degrades" well...in other words, it doesn't do that thing that most powders do; where it makes your foundation look nice for the first 20 minutes and then turns clumpy & cakey mess after 1 hr. It MAINTAINS A "JUST-APPLIED" LOOK for a long period of time; good degradation (is that the right phrase to use? "Keeps FRESH for long" maybe?)
Absolute superstar & absolutely impressed.
I have one problem with this that would prevent me from buying this a second time: the finish. It's a blatant "I'm wearing makeup!" look. It's a powdery & slightly chalky finish that will disagree with all folks who only want to have natural-looking makeup. If you want that no-makeup look (natural, glowy, barely-there), this is not the go-to powder.
I love the oil control this gives but if I ever come across one that provided a better finish but with similarly good oil control & "degradation", I'd have no hesitations leaving this one forever.
