Best Drugstore #Foundation under $20 - Revlon Colorstay Foundation Review

This product has two types – for combination/oily skin and for normal/dry skin. I use the combination/oily type….
*Revlon’s description: Long-wearing coverage with Time Release Technology and a lightweight formula that won’t cake, fade, or rub off. Specifically made for combination or oily skin to control oil absorption and shine. Your look stays flawless throughout the day. This description is absolutely correct….


  • This foundation doesn’t cake or rub off.
  • It blends well with other foundations too, I’ve tried it with MAC’s studio fix fluid and they blended flawlessly.
  • It’s long lasting, I wear it up to 12 hours some days and my face remains flawless without oil and shine till i wipe off  my makeup.*P.s I use milk of magnesia to prime my t-zone.
  • It leaves a matte flawless finish with medium buildable coverage.
  • Range of colors to choose from for all complexions.
  • It’s affordable, costs about $10 – $15.
