Spotted: Revlon ColorStay Foundation and Concealer

A popular blog in the States, Nouveau Cheap, has this amazing series called "Drugstore Sightings/Spotted" where they compile new releases and launches at the American drugstores or outlets.  I borrowed the name from them.

I pay very frequent visits to local pharmacies (Watson's, Mannings) and beauty stores (Sasa, Bonjour, Colourmix) and very often I catch sight of new displays and products, too.  I remember doing these 'immediate' swatch-and-tell posts before, featuring the Hello Kitty blushes.  This time we have something from Revlon!

Note: pictures in this post shot with iPad under indoor lighting.  Foundation swatch on inner part of my wrist.

Swatch with less than 1 pump, blended in with fingers

Foundation Key Points:
- We have the formula in Oily/Combination only.  The Normal/Dry formula is not here.
- There are four shades denoted by the cardboard description: 150, 180, 200, 240.
- Priced at HK $158 each, 30ml of product.
- Made in USA.
- With pump!
- Only three shades of actual bottles are displayed: 150 Buff, 180 Sand Beige, 200 Nude.
- 150 Buff: my shade.  Yellow/neutral undertone.  I own and wear the ColorStay Normal/Dry, or the ColorStay Whipped, both in this colour.
- 180 Sand Beige: darker and yellow/neutral undertone.
- 200 Nude: in terms of darkness, it is in between Buff and Sand Beige.  It has more pink undertone.

Concealer Key Points:
- two shades available, 02 Light, 03 Light Medium
- HK $88, 6.2ml
- 02 Light: good for 150 Buff I think.
- 03 Light Medium: good for 180 Sand Beige I think.

Have you tried the Revlon ColorStay range?  Are there any Asian drugstore makeup/brands you're interested?  (I can go swatch them for you!)

  1. In Argentina we have the two versions of the foundation, without the pump and the numbering starts at 180... way too dark for me
    thanks for stopping by my blog

    1. Hi Eugenia, well, I guess they have a wrong 'marketing' approach then. International brands don't bring out all the shades in some market, because they won't sell, for instance, I don't think the shade darker than 240 will sell well. If you want a light colour with a pump in the Oily/Combo formula, I can buy you one! :D
