I have to admit I was intimidated the first time I saw the Revlon ColorStay Whipped Creme Makeup. I know I have been using a lot of liquid and creme foundation in the past but it was hard for me to figure out how to use this one. Whipped makeup is something new to my ears. Everything in this makeup, texture and packaging , was different to me. So before I post this review, I have to make sure I know how to maximize it’s use and help the others who are also as clueless as me the first time.
- Buildable to full coverage for flawless skin
- Soft, matte finish all day long
- Withstands heat and humidity – great for summer
How to use:
I tried using foundation brush at first but it was a bit hard to spread it all over my face and distribute it evenly. So I decided to use my fingers instead and it glided very smoothly onto my skin. I suggest you use your finger tips to apply this makeup and then use a foundation brush to blend it all over.
Coverage is full so be easy on application especially if you use a makeup brush.
On my face:
What I think of it:
- The whipped creme makeup foundation has a thick consistency. In fact it’s so thick that the white plastic lid on the container won’t fall off even if you turn it upside down.
- I had the Medium Beige and Warm Golden shade. If you are a regular Revlon user, I’m sure you already know your shade. It is pretty much the same for this one. I usually get the Medium Beige but it appears the Warm Golden suits me better.
- It takes a while for the makeup to set-in. It took about 5 minutes or so in my estimate before it blended onto my skin the way I want it to be.
- According to the product information, finish was supposedly matte, however, it appeared a bit dewy and soft on me which is not bad at all, in fact I like dewy finish better than matte when it comes with foundation. Satin soft finish makes one look younger than matte finish. If you are my age you would want to look younger! Finishing it off with a loose powder makes the foundation become matte.
- What I like best about this whipped creme makeup is that it was able to make the blemish on my left cheek a bit less obvious without having to use a concealer.
- You have to find the perfect shade that matches your skin tone if you want your makeup to appear flawless.
- Coverage is buildable from medium to heavy.
- To make it last longer better finish off with a loose powder.
Do I recommend it?
It takes a lot of trial and error to find out the best way to use this whipped creme foundation. But when you get the hang of it it can be very addicting. This makeup is best used on special occasion that calls for a full coverage but less touch ups.
How about you, have you tried Revlon’s whipped makeup yet? How was it for you? How do you like to apply it best with fingers or makeup brush?
Stay gorgeous everyone!
