Okay, so recently I went to pick up a new bottle of Revlon Colorstay Makeup from my local Walmart because I was getting low on my old one. Just like every morning, I showered and got ready to do my makeup routine for the day. After shaking the bottle a little to mix the foundation, I took the top off and tipped the bottle in order to pour the makeup onto the back of my hand...and after several moments of waiting...nothing came out! LOL I looked inside the bottle to make sure there was actually makeup inside and to make sure I wasn't losing my mind (after all, it was pretty early! LOL) Well, the bottle was completely full! :O
Needless to say, I was completely thrown off by this lol, I started to tap the bottle on the back of my hand to encourage the makeup to come out and.......nothing! So, I starting hitting the bottle against the back of my hand, pretty hard btw, to get it to come out! Nothing came out :( I even tried getting it to come out onto the palm of my hand! Sigh, after about 2 minutes of war, only a TINY bit came out! LOL From that tiny bit, I noticed that the foundation was a completely different texture than before. It was kind of like a "cream." It's much thicker than the foundation from my previous bottle. When I applied the makeup to my skin, it felt like it was whipped or something. ( It's funny because Revlon does in fact have a whipped makeup that I haven't tried yet, but would imagine it feeling very similar to this!) One good thing about this "possible" new formula, is that the coverage was much better than it was before. However, the color was also a little light for my skin tone at first. :/ I was immediately concerned about this lol, but after a few minutes, it blended perfectly to my skin tone as it once did. Phew!
I'm really not sure if this is a new formula or if I just got a faulty one :/ Overall, I still love this foundation :D It's still awesome! It has the same great lasting power and natural looking finish (but now, it also has a little transfer which I'm not thrilled about...the old formula DID NOT transfer at all! So I hope they fix this... sigh) Most of all, I DO NOT like that the packaging makes it nearly impossible for the "cream like" makeup to come out lol! It usually takes me about 5 minutes to do my foundation and it took double the time because I was boxing with this bottle! SMH... Have a blessed day!
