Revlon Colourstay Mineral Mousse Foundation: A Review

OK guys so once again all my UK followers are going to hate me for doing a review of a product which hasn't been released in the UK yet but I'm sure you will love me for it when this product is released so you can go straight out and buy it thinking of my review Lol! Anyway i managed to pick this product up whilst i was on holiday in the Philippines and it cost around £11.00...maybe a bit steep for a drugstore product?? Two initial great things about this product 1. it has SPF 20 in it and 2. the packaging is great, unlike all these glass bottles I'm used too its a tube so the product is alot easier to remove and you don't end up wasting half of it.

Overall i am incredibly shocked with this product, although i love every Revlon product for some reason i was a bit sceptical about this foundation but i have to say it is now my new love...but not everyday as i don't want to run out!!!

The coverage with this foundation is amazing, it totally took me by surprise! The texture while applying is that of a whipped foundation and drys really fast so you have to work quickly and because of this its not a buildable foundation due to the texture its very much a matte finish so once all over is enough other wise you will end up looking too cakey. Staying power is great i have used it with a primer and a moisturiser and both worked just as well to keep this bad boy in place. Although this product is mineral based its really quite thick so i think this has something to do with its amazing staying power.Please don't get put off by the words thick it is sheer enough so your skin can breath! A matte finish is really big and the moment so this is definitely something to try if that's what you are looking for.

I havent suffered with many foundations breaking me out so i cant really comment on weither this product does or not..sorry! I have read that this is great for people with oily/combination skin and no-one yet has broken out...fingers crossed!

Hopefully this foundation will be released in the UK soon as i dont know how i will cope when i run out of this :((

Amazing product!!
