A Holy Grail foundation for broke college girls



Controls oil


Very long-lasting

Adequate quantity

Doesn’t crack or crease



How much ever I want to use expensive, high-end brands, the truth is, I cannot afford them. I am a broke college girl who cannot afford to look dead and ugly, so I need makeup and have to settle for drugstore products. Revlon Colorstay Makeup For Combination/Oily Skin is perfect for us girls looking for a long-lasting foundation on a budget.

It is specially formulated for people with oily/combination skin, and that’s what I love about it. Also, like other high-end brands, Revlon has also launched more than 40 shades to choose from. I found the perfect match for my skin tone, which matched my undertone as well.

It’s excellent at what it does. It’s a little thick, so blending is a challenge. If not done on time, it tends to dry out. But, once blended and dried, there is nothing else to do. It does not require a setting spray, although I always use a primer. It does control the oil production up to a limit and also doesn’t let shine get over my face. It stays matte for a good 7 to 8 hours, which I think is pretty decent for the price I am paying.

Also, for the kind of day I have, running around classes, a little bit of sports, and a little time for physical activity, this foundation surprisingly lasts through everything. It does not crease, crack, or get patchy. I think until I get super rich, I will continue using this one.

This foundation is seasonal…


Controls oil


Great shade range

Good for summers


Too dry for winters

My combination skin tends to get very oily and sweaty during the summer. For this time of the year, Revlon Colorstay Makeup For Combination/Oily Skin does a great job. It controls oil and sweat, lasts all day (8 am to 7 pm). I use it every day and set it with a loose powder.

But, for the winters, it troubles me a lot. I think it has to do with the formulation of the foundation and the way my skin reacts to it. My skin gets dry and stretchy during the winters and produces oil only after 4 to 5 hours of wearing makeup. So when it is still dry, it gets tough to blend this foundation and get the desired result. And it kind of makes my skin more dry by absorbing the little moisture it produces.

I use it in summers, but for winters, I have to look for a new product.

Affordable and amazing



Controls oil


Suitable for oily/combination skin


Medium coverage

For a drugstore foundation to perform this well is impressive. I did not have high expectations when I bought this one, but it has outdone all norms. It is affordable, and the quantity is amazing. It’s easy to blend and offers medium coverage. It dries out to be a complete matte and stays the same for the entire day.

For a person like me, who has oil dripping off of her face by the end of the day, this product tends to perform outstandingly. It absorbs oil and keeps me shine free. The only thing I think could be better is the packaging because using it when it’s nearing its end is a pain. Otherwise, there is nothing more I can ask from this product.

It does get oily!


Easy to apply

Medium coverage


Doesn’t last long

Tends to get oily

I am still in search of a foundation that will be my HG and every time I try a new foundation, it scares me. When I got this one, I was skeptical and excited because of all the good reviews. I applied it in the morning around 8 and by 3 pm, my face became terribly oily. It did not control the oil on my face at all.

I wished it worked for me because, apart from it getting oily, there is nothing major I hate about the foundation. I still use it on days I don’t have to go out for a long time. But for longer, hectic days, I prefer other foundations I own.
