Just a Mini-Haul..

I thought I’d share this quick haul today since I’m excited to pop these goodies asap. I like going to Ocean State Job Lot to buy products that I like and to discover items that I’ve never seen or tried before at a very affordable price. If you’ve been following my blog since day one, you’ve heard me mention this store quite a lot (link HERE for reference). Continue reading “Just a Mini-Haul..”

I purchased this product back in August of 2016 out of the whim. While browsing the makeup aisle at CVS Pharmacy, I noticed that this jar was labeled “NEW“. I wasn’t sure if this was really new but out of curiosity, I thought why not give it a try.

This Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup retails from $9.19 or more depending on where you buy them. CVS Pharmacy sells this for $13.99 but since I had multiple coupons during that moment, I ended up paying $6.79 which was a huge bargain!

I chose the shade BUFF (150) and it’s the lightest shade available at the store. This shade looks very natural based on what you see through the jar. But when I opened it, they actually looked a bit darker than what you see from the container.

What I like?

  • Super lightweight
  • Amazing consistency
  • Very easy to blend (I like using a foundation brush instead of a makeup sponge for easier application and flawless result)
  • Non-cakey
  • Full coverage
  • Long wearing (sits on my skin from 7AM to 4PM or even longer)
  • Matte finish (I only apply a setting powder once and I’m shine free all day)
  • It didn’t irritate my skin (thumbs up to that!)

This foundation also turned one shade lighter after a few minutes from application (But, I don’t mind coz I set this foundation using my Sue Devitt loose powder which is a shade darker than this foundation so it neutralizes the end result). I’m sure to some, this is a big No-No but this didn’t bother me at all.

What I don’t like?

  • The jar is thick and heavy (I don’t mind)
  • less product inside (only 23ml compared to Rimmel London Match Perfection Foundation with 30ml for only $4.97)
  • You have to either dip your finger or brush into the jar to get the product out (not a big fan)
  • Choosing the right shade is a little bit difficult if you rely on the external appearance or color through the glass jar.

I’ve used this foundation majority of the summer months and I loved it so much! As you can see, I’m close to the finish line. 🙂

Would I repurchase this foundation? Yes, perhaps pick a different shade AND if it’s more affordable than $13.99. * CVS Pharmacy is currently having a Buy 1 Get 1 half off with a selling price of $15.29 while it retails for $10.77 at Walmart.*

Would I recommend this  foundation? Yes! If you don’t mind wearing a foundation that turns a shade lighter.

How about you? Have you guys tried this foundation?
