Review: Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup in Warm Golden
Here's a review on Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup in Warm Golden
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all local Revlon counters in leading department stores
For serious coverage, nothing beats cream foundation because it has superior concealing coverage if compared with regular liquid foundation, but I'm not a fan of its oily and heavy consistency, hence I don't really find myself wanting it. Over the years, Cream foundations have evolved into oil- free, lightweight mousses, but they require some effort to use, not to mention they end up being patchy and crackly if you don't work or set them properly.
Revlon's newest foundation, Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup, (which I believe is their first- ever cream foundation) is a very interesting product because looks to me, it has combined two of the lovable traits of cream and mousse foundations: the superb concealing powers of cream foundation and the long- wearing finish of mousse foundation.
Revlon said that this product can last up to 24 hours, and has the Time Release formula, although the brand didn't explain it in detail. :p

Packaging is a heavy and bulky, yet sturdy glass. Its packaging is too big to lug around, so just transfer an adequate amount to a small jar using a clean spatula if you want to bring this foundation with you during travels.
The foundation has a putty- like and bouncy consistency, and rich, smooth, and silicone- like texture. However, it reeks of a strong, chemical- like fragrance that's quite off- putting. Good thing the scent goes away when I finally set it with powder!
Our locally- available shade range leans towards fair- skinned girls as its darkest shade, Warm Golden, is a shade lighter than my skin tone--It also has an olive undertone, which totally makes this a mismatch for my skin tone. :/ Actually, the line has 16 shades all in all and I think Revlon should bring in the tanned and yellow- toned ones.
On the brighter side, I love its whipped, creamy, bouncy consistency because it enables me to do effective spot concealing with this alone: I put a dollop on my finger, then I dab it on my spots until it melts onto my skin, then I lightly run a finger on top of it to even out the surface and remove any excess product.

The product is breathable and spreadable, setting time is quick, coverage is full yet it doesn't make you look as if you're too made up, finish is matte with a hint of dewiness, and it's tolerable despite its thickness. When set with powder, finish becomes completely matte. A little goes a long, long way too! Its opaque coverage evens out the skin surface, making it smooth and flawless- looking. I only apply one layer most of the time because it has very good coverage. Besides, it has a tendency to look and feel heavy if I layer it on. (Of course)
HOW I WORK IT: I use a stippling brush with this foundation to get a soft- focus and natural- looking coverage. I buff the foundation in circular motions onto my skin.
Staying power is marvelous: My T-Zone gets oily after a good 4 hours, and the foundation stays intact for the rest of the day, yet is so easy to remove. It doesn't make my skin feel tight and dry during wear as well.
I really like this foundation because it is so innovative, but I wish we have more shade options in our local Revlon counters. Anyway, I never thought that an oily/combination- skinned gal like me could wear cream foundation on a daily basis, but this product proved me wrong! I think it will also suit dry- skinned gals because it's creaminess may help soothe flaky areas, and it has Sodium Hyaluronate, a hydrating skin care/makeup ingredient. I recommend this to anyone who's looking for a very good yet affordable cream foundation. Revlon, please bring the rest of the shades to our country, especially the yellow- toned ones!
