High end vs highstreet – Revlon Colourstay Foundation 

Hey guys,

So as you might know I finally splashed out on my nars foundation at Christmas, and when it costs a small fortune I didn’t want to use it every day when I’m just going to work or popping into town. So I decided to buy a cheaper alternative, and this revlon one was on offer so I decided to give it a try.

And oh my goodness I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it is. So much so it’s my new go to foundation, move aside nars!

I think when you fork out so much for something you convince yourself it’s great.

Nars sheer glow:

The colour is pretty spot on tbh, and once on the skin it does look completely natural and matte. Downsides are it takes a fair few pumps to get a decent coverage, it’s not very blendable, and I need to keep powdering the hell out of my forehead to keep it to not resemble a mirror. £31 shade Gobi.

Revlon Colourstay:

The first good thing is that the shade is pretty much identical to my nars. They have a good range of colours. Next, they have two types, one for oily skin one for normal/dry. Which means I don’t need to powder. Honestly, all day and it looks exactly as when I applied it. It doesn’t move! And the coverage is flawless. It’s natural yet pretty full coverage. No cakeyness.

So yeah. I’m sold. And my bank balance will look much better.
If you’re looking to buy a high end foundation, give this a try instead.
It’s available pretty much everywhere and costs around £12 although look out for offers.

Let me know what you think!

      Oily I think, I usually get so shiny but with this I don’t have to re powder it’s so good, definitely give it a try! Xx

    Never tried the Revlon – personally not a fan of Nars – I found it way too cakey xx

    Thank you for the recommendation. I have not had much luck with store brands myself, but next time I would like to try this and see 🙂

    Great review!! Can you show us the comparison between revlon and the nars one? I mean the pic of your “before” and “afters”!

      Thankyou! I’ve done a makeup look with both so have a look and see if there’s any difference, but when they’re on they both look very similar, just the Revlon one needs less product and lasts longer! xx
