Revlon Colorstay Foundation with Softflex in Toast

I have read nothing but great reviews for Revlon Colorstay Foundation. Most beauty bloggers and You Tube gurus like to compare this to MAC Studio Fix Fluid minus the occasional breakouts and the expensive price tag. So who won't want to try this foundation right? Right. Hehe So I did, I got my sister to get this for me in Singapore since here in Manila, their darkest shade available is so light that people with skin tones NC30 and up, won't even be able to use it. So anyway, I decided to get the Shade Toast. :)

The foundation comes in 1 fluid o.z full size in a twist open cap and a glass bottle. This is the same size as other full size foundations out in the market, although this product would be so much better if it had a pump, since tendency is to waste more product.

The consistency of the product feels thick, but once blended becomes very lightweight. This is a medium-full coverage and is buildable, even though you keep building and packing on the foundation, it still manages to feel light on skin. :)

The shade Toast looks perfect for my skin tone since it disappears right away. But what I didn't anticipate was that, since I got the Combination/Oily variant for my acidic face. Once the foundation oxidizes it becomes 1 shade darker. So I should've gotten a shade that was lighter than this. But otherwise, I am very happy with the finish the foundation gives, it's light and silky.

I will probably just get one of the lightest shades of this foundation so I can just do my own mixing to mix and match clients too. :)

The only thing I don't like about this is how the shades in MANILA ARE SO LIMITED.

Btw, in 2 weeks I will be leaving for the States for a vacation. I will be hoarding on make up like crazy I'm sooo excited. So more reviews and blog posts then! :)

Toodles! :)
