Revlon ColorStay Whipped Foundation

I'm not entirely sure why I purchased this foundation, but I did and I'm glad I tried it. I'm a huge fan of Revlon's products. I'm not particularly fond on the ColorStay liquid foundation. I absolutely love the Revlon PhotoReady. I'm beginning to think it makes me break out, because when I took a break from it, I stopped breaking out so much. I had a ton of little bumps on my chin area.

I wanted to give this whipped foundation because I wanted a 24 foundation that wasn't as trying at the original ColorStay. I was a bit surprised when this whipped foundation had the consistency of jello.  Whipped makes me think of whipped cream. What about you?

My first impression wasn't all that great. It went on really cakey and would recommend trying a different brush. The sigma F82 is a great brush for liquid, but I don't think it worked particularly well for this one. I would definitely recommend primer also. This foundation was settling in my pores and looked really cakey around my face. It did make me look completely flawless in low light, but in the sunlight/natural light I had frosting face. ICK.

This foundation would be best if put on with light layers with a damp sponge or maybe a stippling brush. I would also recommend this for someone who will be taking pictures, maybe senior portraits, engagement photos and the like. Overall I think my first reaction was very critical. If I had just exfoliated, applied a primer and used a different brush it probably would have looked great. But that's a lot of work for foundation for a daily basis. I love just applying my PhotoReady with my fingers!
