Revlon ColorStay is quite often compared to Make Up Forever Mat Velvet +, I own and wear both foundations and thought I would do a review comparing the two. For the review I’ve used Revlon ColorStay in Sand Beige (180) and Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + (30) as the colours are quite similar. I wouldn’t ordinarily wear these shades as they are a tiny bit too dark for me unless I have a small bit of fake tan on.
Price: Make Up Forever Mat Velvet + €36 for 30ml. Revlon ColorStay also in 30ml bottle is usually €17.50 but from time to time it is on offer for €13.50, so keep an eye out for this offer. I wouldn’t pay €17.50, but for €13.50 that makes it a great buy in my opinion.
Texture: Both have a similar texture and are quick to dry. Be careful around the eye area as both can settle into fine lines and wrinkles ensure you apply a light eye cream first. Both are good if you have oily/combination skin, but avoid if your skin is at all dry. Revlon ColorStay also comes in a normal/combination formulation but it’s not great for dry skin either.
