Review: Revlon Whipped Creme Foundation

11/20/12

Everyone has been awaiting for this review, and it's finally here! 
Revlon Colourstay Whipped Creme Foundation
I've always really liked Revlon, their products always deliver and they don't often make promises they can't keep. So when they came out with a new foundation they named "whipped" I had to try it! For years now I've been using the Revlon Colourstay Liquid Foundation which is an amazing drugstore foundation (one of the best!), and was more than happy to purchase their new Whipped Colourstay item. Happy to say that overall this Whipped foundation does not disappoint.
For reference I got 250 Medium Beige for my NC25-NC30 skin.




Texture: It's a cream texture, but it's more viscous than the regular Revlon Colourstay Liquid Foundation. I'd say "whipped" is a very good description of this foundation. It's not too much like a liquid, yet it's thick enough to be a cream and it's light enough to blend out very very easily. 
Wear: I wouldn't say 24 hours, but after a full workday (8-10hrs) there's a little bit of fading (it might be also due to my combination skin) but it stays put pretty well! I don't do touch ups and I still feel as though I'm substantially covered. Even though I do believe it's oil free I wouldn't recommend this to ladies who would want a mattifying foundation or that have an oily complexion already.
Product: The pigmentation is quite neutral for the colour I have (250 Medium Beige). I find it more yellow toned than pink toned but even then it's far more neutral than some other foundations (like Benefits new Hello Flawless Oxygen Wow foundation). I would say this foundation is more medium coverage. It hold less product (23.7ml) than the Revlon Colourstay Liquid (30ml), which is another thing to note. 
Packaging: The pot packaging is very cute and classic, but I always prefer pumps for foundations as it's a more sanitary disposal of the product. Alternatively, you can make sure to always use a clean brush or scoop out a little bit with a clean utensil. 
Price: In the USA I think it's about 10$ and in Canada I think about 16-17$ depending on location. Steep enough for a drugstore (high street) product.

Would I repurchase this product? Yes! I think it's great for the Fall/Winter as it's got that extra bit of moisture and coverage that lasts. So far, it's replaced my colourstay liquid foundation.

My rating? I give it an 8/10. Docking points for the fact that it's NOT very suitable for oilier complexions and the slighter steeper price for the amount of product

What are your thoughts on this product? Have you tried the Revlon Colourstay line or the Whipped Foundation?
