I decided to pick up the NEW Revlon Colourstay Foundation yesterday after work since Chemist Warehouse was still having the 1/2 price sale on their store items so I wanted to take advantage! I hate how we Aussie's have to pay an arm and a leg for make up, it's honestly ridiculous!
According to Revlon
New features: easy to use pump, effective time release technology (no need for touch-ups for 24hours) and a higher SPF (not too sure what it was before) - SPF 15.
Coverage: medium to full coverage
Colour range: 12 shades
Longevity: claims to stay on for 24 hours (but honestly, who will wear their make up for that long?)
Types: Normal/Dry and Combination/Oily
I originally wanted to pick it up in the shade "Natural Tan", but they didn't have it in the combination/oily skin formula, so I decided to stick with the shade "True Beige", which is what I used in the old Colourstay foundation. I noticed when I swatched the shades in both formulas that the normal/dry shades are a lot more yellow toned compared to the combination/oily formula, which are a lot more pink! I personally have yellow undertones, but the "True Beige" in the combination/oily formula isn't too bad, but I will definitely see how I go with this shade and review it further.
First impression of the foundation is that I love the new bottle and pump! It's easy to use and so much more effective, rather than pouring the foundation and losing a lot of product. In regards to the actual formula, from the swatch, it seems to be exactly the same as the old formula.
