Revlon ColorStay Mineral Mousse - a review

I have been using Revlon Colorstay for combo/oily skin, and I really like it, so I decided to branch out and try the Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse.

I really don't like it. I feel like I need to use a lot of product in order to get the desired effect. Plus I fell like this makes me look too matte, which can make the skin just look dry and in some cases flaky. Even early in the day it seemed to make my skin look dry and flaky. I don't know if maybe it is the application, but I have tried everything, brush, fingers, sponges, and I always seem to waste more product than I use on my face. Plus I have to say I feel like this transfers a lot easier than the regular Colorstay liquid foundation. I am just not a fan of this product. I am sure there are people who like this, but it isn't for me. It is simply too matte and too much of a hassle to work with. If you want to try a Colorstay foundation, I say stick with the liquid foundation.

For reference, this is what I looked like after application this morning.

This is what I looked like after about 9 hours of wear

I will admit, this does seem to last throughout the day, but the liquid Colorstay beats the Mineral Mousse in that department hands down. You may like this foundation if you love a really matte look, because the Mineral Mousse delivers in that department, but stay away if you don't like that look.

  1. i really want to try the colorstay! x

  2. Shopping Addict! I am so excited for Halloween! i just love it. Maybe it is the whole working with kids thing but omg Halloween yay!

    Christine: You should definitely try Colorstay! The liquid foundation is a great full coverage foundation. You might actually like the Mineral Mousse if you like more of the matte look too.
