Review: Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Foundation

Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Makeup in Light/Pale

Product Info from Revlon:
NEW Colorstay Aqua™ Mineral Makeup delivers a burst of hydrating coconut water and an instant cooling sensation upon application. The result: your skin looks luminous and its texture smoother. With a shine-free formula that’s made with water, not oil, this lightweight powder gives you a fresh, flawless finish that lasts all day. Fragrance free and non-irritating.


RETAIL PRICE: Php 1,295.00

WEIGHT: 9.9 grams

SHADES : Available in 7 shades.


PROS:
* has spf 13
* feels lightweight
* i LOVE the cooling sensation it gives. Soooo addicting!
* has tiny shimmers; gives me a glowy effect similar to the Photoready line.
* sheer coverage - doesn't look cakey even with frequent retouching
* the brush is soft and dense
* no allergies so far - been using it as setting powder for more than a week now.


CONS:
* if you don't like shimmers then this product isn't for you.
* even though this is listed as " fragrance-free" it has a slight weird smell.. but don't worry coz it disappears a few minutes after application.
* does not cover pores since this powder has a sheer coverage.


TIPS:
* Cover half of the holes with a tape to dispense a little amount of product or place a puff inside to prevent the powder from spilling.
* I use my Ecotools kabuki brush to apply this as setting powder while the free brush can be used on areas that need more coverage like the chin area, sides of the nose etc.
* Since the free brush is made of synthetic hair, it can also be used as a liquid foundation brush or concealer brush for the undereyes.


I RECOMMEND THIS TO:
Ladies who want a glowing effect similar to Korean Celebs.


OVERALL:
You know me, I love shimmers! The price may be a shock for a Revlon product but I think this will last me 4 - 6 months with daily use, so sulit pa rin!

Sounds like an awesome product. The shimmers are quite visible. I have oily skin and I don't think this would work for me. Great review!

u make me wanna have this one!
:)
do they say that this is paraben free etc?

Shopcoholic said...

@ Vanilla - I'm not sure whether this is paraben-free. Regarding oil control, I have Normal skin and I retouch once during the day. I'm using Monistat powder gel as primer.

awesome review! this looks really promising, but I'm not much of a shimmery fan so will probably pass up on this.

Btw sis, I forgot to answer one of your queries before. Oseur is not available at Metro ayala. I only saw it at Metro colon. I think that smaller malls has them. and Oh, did you buy the retractable brush na? they restocked na.
