Testing out Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer

Wednesday, May 04, 2016

This is a follow up of my popular Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer (19.99 CAN) post I did in February.

Let me do a quick rundown, in case you missed the original post. This 2-in-1 compact is all you need. Black plastic packaging- Foundation and concealer together with a tear-shaped sponge beneath, totally eliminating clutter. Perfect for me since I’m forever misplacing my concealer!



I originally tried 400 Caramel which really wasn’t my tone. So I was given the colour 410 Cappuccino which is the deepest colour in the line.

This is a medium-heavy coverage foundation with a satin-matte finish.

Disclaimer- When wearing a matte finish. It’s important to have a really good skin regime. I’m talking about cleansing, exfoliating the dead skin off, toning and moisturizing. If you neglect this your foundation will not look its best.

Testing what colour works for you:
Always use your jaw, not the side of your arm or your hand. You may pick a foundation that looks amazing on your hand and when you get home and try it…completely off. As with other compact foundations, the colour in the compact may appear darker than it will on your skin so Revlon suggests using the smaller concealer shade as a reference point for proper shade matching in-store before you buy.

Totally embarrassing but my skin has come a long way in the past few months; some slight discolouration on my cheeks, under my eyes and around my nose.

BEFORE



With one application of 410 Cappuccino, most of it is covered. Just a few areas that need extra attention. I added 410 Cappuccino concealer on top of the foundation (I put a circle on top to show you the colour difference). Depending on your preference, you can blend this out and be done with your look or add foundation on top for extra coverage.

The finished look.

I would recommend using a sponge or fingers for this product. The product comes with a sponge—it’s under the second layer along with a hidden mirror, which is really handy. The consistency is very creamy and blendable. Not dry like most matte formulas. This is a foundation worth trying! There are 12 colours in the range to choose from. Let me know what you think below!

This post was brought to you by Revlon but the images and opinions are my own.

  1. Does the foundatuon transfer on to other things? Let me know I hear that drugstore brands seem to do this alot.
