Product Review: Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse 030 Light

I have been a powder foundation user for years and I try foundations in non-powder form every once in a while. The latest one I've tried is Revlon Colorstay Mineral Mousse in 010 Light shade. I've used it only for a few times and it's now with its new owner. To know why it's no longer with me, read the review.



I had really high hopes for this foundation as I was impressed when i initially tried it at a Revlon counter. I liked how smooth my skin looks and the dewy look it gave me. I felt a little itch on my nose and cheeks but I just shrugged it off because I thought that it might just be an insect bite. So I went ahead and bought this foundation. I used it on and off for a few days. I really liked how it sort of stayed put on my skin given how oily my T-Zone is. I really liked the finish when I topped it off with my In2It Oil Control Powder Foundation. But then I realized that every time I use it, I end up having red marks on my face. Then wake up the following morning with something that looks like a zit but not totally a zit. Just red spots and patches on my face. What made me decide to finally stop using it is when I really had small zit on my nose as well as on my cheek. Too bad because I really liked it.

What I like:
- Applies really smoothly on the skin.
- Scent doesn't stink.
- Feels really light on the face, it does not make you feel as if you're wearing a mask when you have it on.
- Buildable. Has light-medium coverage but it is buildable depending on how you like it.
- Can cover minor blemishes.
- A little goes a long way.
- Gives a matte finish.
- Sort of makes pores less visible.
- Lasts for a good 3-4 hours on my oily skin but once my T-Zone starts to oil up, I get a rather dewy look than a slicky oil mine of a face.
- Blends well with the skin.
- Read that it works best for those with oily skin.
- Locally available at all Revlon counters nationwide.

What I don't like:
- I might be allergic to something in it as I got red patches and spots every time I use it and even gave me a zit.
- Kinda expensive for a drugstore makeup though I scored mine on eBay for only PHP290 + shipping.

Overall rating: 3/5 (This is somewhat a subjective review due to my experience but for those who do not have sensitive skin, this might work for you)

Will I buy again? No. I'll just stick to Japanese-branded powder foundies.

Tip: To avoid streaks, better to go back to the basics in application. Use your trusty ol' fingers to make it more even. :P Using your fingers also sort of warms up the foundation too.


At the back of my hand.


Blended.


Happy weekend! :P

  7. Pop, you may want to try it at the counter first then roadtest it to see if there will also be an allergic reaction? Too bad because I find it a really nice product. :(
