Review By Preeti Kaur
Hello Beauties,
This is my first guest post on Indian Beauty Zone and I am super happy , Thanks Radha for publishing my post . Today I am reviewing my current favorite foundation, Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation in the shade Warm Golden. It has been making quite a rage in the blogging world and supposedly replaced Revlon's hit product, Revlon Colorstay Makeup.

Warm Golden suits me to the T :) Here is the swatch: -

The foundation comes in a frosted glass jar with a round black screw cap. It also has a small lip separating the cap roof and the product. The white lid makes sure that no product gets accumulated in the cap making a mess. It is not the most convenient packaging but I have figured a way out to make sure it doesn't get contaminated. 

Since the quantity is huge, it is going to last long and the chances of introducing bacteria to the foundation increases by manifold. First of all, I don’t dip my fingers into the pot at all. I take a clean q-tip to take the foundation out. I take a coin size amount of the product with the help of a q-tip and transfer it to a small jar (like the ones they give you in Clinique stores for product samples). This way I don’t open the jar as often and the foundation doesn't get introduced to any kind of bacteria.

Coverage & texture- 
It offers medium coverage. I like to add two thin layers. That way it doesn't look cakey. It has a very thick creamy texture.

My experience
I have acne prone combination-oily skin. Most of the foundations break me out and that includes MAC, EL & MUFE. On one hand all our lovely bloggers' HG foundation comes from these brands, I stay away from them :( Thankfully, it has not broken me out. Once the foundation is set, it stays and stays, even through Delhi heat & humidity. Sweating makes my face shiny which can easily be resolved with a blotting sheet.
I have worn it for 10 hours and it didn't fade at all. Yeah, can you believe it? It is appropriate for long hours even through non-AC environment. I have tried using brush as well as fingers with this foundation. Fingers give better coverage while my RT Expert Face Brush sheers out the coverage a bit. Let sum up the pros and cons :)

Pros: -
1. Medium coverage.
2. Buildable.
3. Apt for combination-oily skin.
4. Very long wearing.
5. Doesn't fade easily.
6. Didn't break me out.
7. Huge quantity is given and a very small amount is required every time. So the jar will last a long time.

Cons: -
1. Tub packaging.
Overall, I just love the foundation 

God Bless!
