Beauty Reviews: Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Foundation/Concealer

Hi dolls!

I’ll make this quick – I saw many YouTubers test out the Revlon ColorStay 2-in-1 Foundation/Concealer product, especially because many of them raved about how wonderful it works for oily skin. Since I have oily skin, I wanted to try it out myself. I do like this product, but I don’t love it. I’ve been using this foundation for a while now because I wanted to really see if I liked it. I decided to try something different this time by testing out a foundation with my glasses. See how it turned out by reading my review below!

Besos!

Overall Thoughts: I love that it does last all day without making me look greasy. It’s also lightweight and you can build up the foundation. Even though it doesn’t make me oily, I do feel extra oily. It works better if you don’t apply primer. It actually lasts longer without moisturizer or primer and you don’t get as greasy. The concealer isn’t that great. It’s actually pretty average.

I admit that when you have a blemish or dry patches of skin, this foundation does not work. I was having a bad skin care day (lucky for you to see the product in action though!) and I wasn’t impressed with how dry this foundation made my skin feel. Not only did it bring attention to my dry skin and pimple, but it also didn’t give me much coverage.

Buying tips: The foundation color looks darker than it actually is. So I would recommend picking the concealer shade closest to your skin tone. The product does oxidize, so I would also recommend going one shade lighter that way if it’s a little too light, you can totally add bronzer and contour to your makeup routine. I also think using a brush works better than a sponge applicator. Because the foundation dries extremely fast, the sponge doesn’t really work to blending the product out. The brush lets you buff in the foundation and you’re able to apply it evenly.

2 Hours after applying my makeup: My pimple was definitely dry and the makeup made things worse by actually highlighting that I have a huge planet on my chin. I don’t recommend using this foundation if your skin is dry or peeling. The rest of my face felt fine and looked great. I also love that I didn’t have glasses marks around my nose, which was a huge plus!

Selena Quintanilla Inspired Makeup Looks

Hi dolls!

I want to dedicate this post to one of my idols – Selena Quintanilla.

No one rocked red lips like she did. I channeled my inner Selena in this post with four of my favorite looks.

She was the definition of glamor and yet she humbly shopped at Wal-Mart just like everyone else. Her style was effortless and it’s still influential in today’s fashion. Her bustiers are iconic. Selena was definitely ahead of her time.

Selena was the ultimate star. Not many performers today can sing better live. If you look back at old videos, Selena’s voice sounded incredible while she was on stage and you could feel her passion with every single note she hit. It’s honestly so amazing.

Selena was the most down-to-earth celebrity. She connected with all of her fans, and wasn’t afraid to be real with them. 

I know I sound like I met her or like I actually saw her in concert, but that’s what is so great about her. Selena’s music, fashion, and impact on the Latin community still lives on. It’s almost as if she never passed away.

I was about 2-years-old when Selena tragically died on March 31st. Even then, I still knew about her music because that’s all my family played. I’m born and bred from Texas, so best believe Selena was a big deal to me. Not to mention, I’m also a Mexican-American just like her.

When the movie came out, that’s when I really understood what happened to her. After the film, I fell even more in love with her music. It’s crazy to think she passed away when she was only 23. I’m 23 and still feel like a teenager sometimes. It’s insane to think she was already so successful in her career and creating music that would live on forever. Gone too soon.

Here are my favorite looks:

Beauty Review: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer

Hi dolls!

I’m so late to the party! I know this product has received so many reviews and first impressions, so I decided to try it out for myself! I have to say that I have a love-hate relationship with this concealer.

Product: Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer: $8.99 (Prices vary, but ULTA always has discounts!)

PROS: Feels like foundation, thick coverage for annoying pimples/redness, and thankfully, it feels like you have nothing on!

CONS: Hate the applicator, like soooo much! This might be a personal thing, but I don’t like twisty tubes or that the applicator is a sponge. I feel like you don’t know how much product you’re actually getting out. There aren’t that many shades, so if you’re a darker skin tone, it could be hard to find the shade that matches you best.

****

I’m not gonna lie, I was a little terrified to post a photo of me with a huge pimple on the Internet! I do this for you! LOL. Seriously, what better way to test out this product, which is meant for concealing. However, this product mostly claims to cover up dark circles and redness, so I was hoping it would cover up the planet on my chin!

Like I said earlier, I hate the applicator and the twisty top. Not my favorite, but not the worst either. It’s hard for me to tell how much product I’m getting because the sponge sort of soaks it all up, and I can’t twist it too much or else I’ll make a mess.

I love that this product is thick, yet feels weightless. I’m definitely one of those beauty girls who HATES to feel cakey. My oily skin does not react well to too much product. So it’s nice to have a concealer that covers, but that also doesn’t feel like frosting on your face.

With that being said, this concealer tends to crust if your face is dry. In my blemish area, I used a nightcream that usually dries out the pimple. So for the rest of the day, I noticed that my chin was more dry compared to most days, and the concealer sort of became crusty. Surprisingly, this product works well with oily skin. My under eyes looked flawless.

Overall, I would probably purchase this concealer again. It’s definitely not my favorite and it’s not the first concealer I grab, but it does work.

Hope this helped lovelies! If you’ve tried this product, I want to hear from you! xoxo
