Revlon Colorstay Review

**I am in no way affiliated with Revlon and this is not a sponsored post**

This week I went to Facebook with a question about foundation. Currently all of the foundations in my ample collection were failing me. My skin has been pretty bad since becoming pregnant, a common side effect of hormone surge, but the winter weather hasn't helped any either! I have such dry skin that you could see tight, dry patches on my cheeks, and my forehead and nose were speckled with tiny flakes of dry skin. Not exactly the luminous, radiant glow depicted on pregnant women in the media, right? I also went a shade paler so I needed to rematch my shade.

I asked, you answered, and I went to Target looking for a few types of drug store priced foundation.

1. Revlon Colorstay
2. L'Oreal True Match Lumi

I found my ivory in the Revlon right away, but there was not a porcelain girl's shade in sight on the Lumi display. Oh well. We went home with the Revlon...

...and a wreath and bunny decorations for Baby Boy's room, these beautiful votive holders to decorate my new master bath, a $2 clearance t shirt, and this perfect lip color!

You can't buy just 1 thing in Target. It's against the laws of women.

The lip color is Revlon Colorburst Balm Stain in Honey.

By the time I drove home, my precious boy (who has decided he's too big for naps) fell asleep, so I decided to park at our apartment and let him sleep while I tried out my new products in the natural afternoon light.
cranky pants - right when he woke up

Keep in mind I didn't have any other make up products on me and I went out just wearing mascara, so ^this^ is just a foundation and lip stain look. Those are my natural eyebrows. So you see why I'm so passionate about shaping & filling them in. I look a lot less focused or put together without my shaped eyebrows! And to think, I went the first 19 years like this.

In addition to trying a new foundation, highly recommended by my Facebook friend Hannah who works in the make up department at Walgreens, I am also implementing a strict moisturizing regimen of coconut oil and the Young Living essential oil Elemi. This oil is nicknamed "the poor man's Frankincense" and has similar properties to the aforementioned Frank that is great for not only the immune system, but the skin as well!

This is me inside after I applied the rest of my products. The difference between indoor and outdoor light is astounding, and as always a little blush and eye brow gel go a long way!

In my opinion, the Revlon Colorstay provides great coverage without feeling heavy at all. It also did not get trapped in the natural creases of my face (which could give a cakey look). The color was perfect, because as you can see in the outdoor picture, I really am that pale. Check my chest and neck for a comparison. I currently have a few pimples around my lips, at my temples, and across my forehead. In both pictures, none of my break outs are very (if at all) visible.

I will definitely keep using this product and if I come across the Lumi or any other highly recommended drug store priced product, I will link my reviews!

If you want to request a review of a particular product, ask and I will try to oblige!
