Revlon Colorstay Foundation is said to be the dupe for Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation (ELDW) . Now I can’t confirm this as I’ve yet to use the ELDF but I can say this - Revlon Colorstay Foundation is fabulous!
Now lets start with the technical nitty gritty. Revlon says -
Want makeup that is flawless and weightless for 16 perfect hours? Revlon has the solution - ColorStay™ Makeup Combi/Oily. Specially formulated for combination or oily skin, this oil-free formula helps control shine all day and gives you flawless looking skin. Makeup looks fresh and feels great for up to 16 hours thanks to the lightweight, comfortable feel from the SoftFlex ColorStay™ formula.
As I’m sure you’ve guessed by the blurb above I’ve purchased the Colorstay for Combination/Oily skin. Revlon also does a formula for Normal/Dry skin too. The formula for Combination/Oily skin is oil-free so it prevents your skin appearing shiny during wear. The glass bottle is very sleek, along with a gloss black twist off lid. The bottle doesn’t come with a pump to dispense the liquid so you’ll need to be careful when opening it. I use an old concealer brush to get the product out and then pop it onto my makeup palette ready for application to my face. That way I’m not contaminating the rest of my foundation. Application is a dream, it’s smooth, velvety and feels so light on the skin. Coverage is very good and I’ve read it’s Medium to Full coverage. I apply mine very lightly so I’d say I get more of a medium coverage. Although when I have blemishes I simply put a little more on the areas I need it. You can layer it up to create a fuller coverage and it wouldn’t look cakey at all. Revlon Colorstay Foundation lasts all day, even with the lightest of coverage. It doesn’t move, flake, sink into pores or oxidize. It really is as good as people say. I’ve been wearing 220 Natural Beige and it’s the perfect match to my skin tone. Oh and this also contains an SPF 6, not the highest sun protection but its still nice to have a little there.
Have you tried out the Revlon Colorstay Foundation? How about the Estee Lauder Doublewear Foundation? How do they compare, I’d love to know……...
