The Revlon ColorStay foundation is a matte foundation that apparently it is a new product from the brand. I was gifted by Revlon Singapore as part of their PR list. Revlon has been part of my makeup life ever since I reached my 15 years old. I love how good the quality of the brand. I use their foundation and I know about setting powder when the beauty advisor introduces it to me since then I get to know more about makeup and fall in love with the beauty industry.
In Singapore, this brand is regarded as drug store makeup while back in Indonesia, the brand is placed among another high-end brand in the department store, even up till now. I will still regard it as drug store makeup because it is a drug store makeup. If you may have no ideas about Revlon – they selling in different quality within countries in South East Asia.
When I purchased Revlon Indonesia products, the quality is much lower compared to Revlon Singapore. I haven’t got to try in Thailand but I do swatches the sample in Malaysia and I feel it is slightly similar to Singapore. I guess Revlon try to balance the pricing with the ingredients mix. E.g: Singapore have strong purchasing power, they will use the best quality while Indonesia has less purchasing power so they use less percentage for the ingredients and also the way they pressed makeup palette, so they can sell it cheaper and within the level of pocket-friendly.
I think it is understandable. Even for US Revlon or L’Oreal products, there is a lot of products that are not available in Singapore and Indonesia, even for the quality, it is really a huge difference. Brands always do market research before they shipped and sell the product in that country. If you are a brand, you won’t be selling a product that is less acceptable in that country, right?!
The product is made for oily skin, for all matte foundation it is for oily skin. But.. somehow this foundation is so good in my dry, dehydrate, sensitive and mature skin with adult acne. Revlon sends me 5 different shade, on the website, there are 16 shades and I use the shade of 210. My skin tone is fair and pinkish.
