Revlon Colorstay- combination/oilyskin (Review)

I decided to purchase the Revlon Colorstay foundation as a back up foundation to use or to use when i'm not going out. Plus its a cheaper alternative and as you all know i am a sucker for products that are of good quality but are at a healthy price. 

So firstly i want to praise Revlon for having two variations of this foundation depending on your skin type. ie: One for dry skin/ normal skin and the other version for people with combination/ oily skin like me.

My specific colour is in 400- caramel. It matches my skin so perfectly and is such a nice shade. This was one thing i was worried about die to a lot of drugstore foundations don't have a wide range generally for all skin colours. I was so happy to find this foundation and even more happier when i tried it for the first time to find that it easily blended into my skin matching it perfectly. 

Revlon caramel is ever so close to Mac NC45. But i found that Revlons cappuccino was also of a nice shade which was close to NC50 with a red/peachy tone to it compared to caramel.

Pros to Revlon Colorstay:-

  • No break out- I had absolutely no break out at all from this foundation which is always gonna be a positive for anyone. 
  • Available for different skin types- As said before they have made versions depending on which skin type you fall under.
  • Very good coverage- I find that this foundation has such good coverage and is buildable depending if you want more coverage.
  • Good selection of colours- I was so happy to see that this foundation has a wide range of shades depending on your skin tone.
  • Generous amount and good quality
  • Long lasting- For a drugstore foundation i found that this one lasted longer than 7hours which i was pretty shocked about.
Cons for Revlon Colorstay:-
  • Drys quickly- I found that when applying the foundation it dried ever so quickly before i even finished applying to my whole face. So you kinda have to work quick with this product.
  • No Pump- For me i love a foundation with a pump so that it can enable me to get the right amount out with a quick pump or two. Plus it just makes it a lot easier.
  • Slight smell- I'm not sire if it is just me or if other people smell this too but i find there is a slight smell to the product when its not dry but its not that bad considering if it was then i probably wouldn't even use it.
Overall i feel that the foundation is such a decent product that i give so much kudos to, and if your looking for something to replace your higher end foundations for a cheaper alternative. Then i would recommend this little product right here. 

Have you used this product? Whats your opinion?

Nicole Richie- We want her style!

Nicole Richie is most famous for co starring in the simple life. Shes a multi-talented woman at the age of 30 is an actress, fashion designer, author and singer. But lets not comment on any of that and focus on her undeniable fashion foward dress sense. 

But that's not what were talking about here. Nicole Richie knows what style is she was awarded the Young Hollywood's Style Icon award from Hollywood Life magazine in 2005 and is known for topping best-dressed lists.  She has continued to amaze us with her dress sense, from her teen years to pregnancy and now being a working mother.

Nicole can go between chilled out and causal to elegant and sophisticated in a minute. Generally most people know they can achieve a day to night outfit in a minute, changing flats to heels or wedges and a cardigan to a blazer and Voila!

Nicole used to carry that bad girl chic image but has transformed it into a trendsetting woman. Sporting such styles as knee high boots, headscarves and her favorite big over sized sunglasses. She is not new to the fashion world at all, where she has modeled and was the face for Bongo Jeans and Jimmy Choo. 

We all want a little of Nicole Richie style she keeps the looks real.

Tell me what you think? Yummy Mummy?
