Beauty Battle: Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup vs. L'Oreal Magic Smooth Souffle







Revlon vs. L'Oreal




Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup


Revlon Colostay Whipped™ Crème Makeup

PACKAGING/APPLICATOR:
-2 The glass jar is very heavy, bulky, and unhygienic
APPLICATION/BLENDING:
-1 The thick, pasty consistency demands extended forceful buffing while requiring quick application/ blending, for the formula dries rapidly. Not the best combination for application purposes.

TEXTURE/FORMULA:
-1 The consistency is extremely thick, a far cry from "comparable" mousse foundations. The creme feels like a pudding paste and is very difficult to blend, churn, and swiftly maneuver around the face.

PIGMENTATION/COVERAGE:
+2 This cream provides a natural, healthy finish, looking more satiny than dewy, and stays away from a cakey/sallow matte finish. The glow of my natural skin still pokes through, while the skin itself appears "refurbished".
+2 The formula acts like a heavy duty concealer, thickly masking all sorts of imperfections, even the most obvious blemishes.
+1 The thick mousse, once applied, slowly transforms into a powdery formula, depositing micro particles that powerfully absorb and soak in oil
+1 This foundation offers a very consistent finish, starting out with a satin-matte appearance that steadily turns into a slightly dewy look. No dramatic shifts from matte to dewy.

LONGEVITY:
+2 The makeup stays put all day, without any hints of creasing, caking, darkening, or oxidizing, flawlessly withstanding heat, sweat or oiliness.


TOTAL SCORE = 4 beauty points




Loreal Magic Smooth Souffle

PACKAGING/APPLICATOR:
+1 The foundation is packaged in a very sturdy and durable clear plastic jar that proves to be uncrackable, unbreakable, and unshatterable.
-1The lack of a pump/tube forces fingers and brushes to be dipped into the jar, causing an unsanitary environment.

APPLICATION/BLENDING:
+1 The consistency of the makeup is a finely whipped, light cream that adheres to your control, allowing you to accomplish all the blending, mixing, buffing, or stippling you desire. 

TEXTURE/FORMULA:
+1 The texture is an absolute dream; a smooth, creamy, silky,and finely whipped delight!

 PIGMENTATION/COVERAGE:
+1 This makeup livens dull skin by providing an even, healthy glow and smoothes minor imperfections, replacing it with a slick base. 
-1 No concealing properties other than adding a few pigments to hide away redness or dullness. The foundation particles are not thick enough to mask blemishes.

LONGEVITY:
-1 This makeup oxidizes into an orange, muddy tint if it runs into any oils, heat, or sweat, immediately dissolving and melting away at the same time.

BONUS:
+1 The substantial amount of silicone in this foundation creates a flawless makeup primer, perfect for dryer skin types. Silicone glides onto the skin, leaving a silky, slippery base that allows foundation to effortlessly slide onto the skin and appear precisely even.

TOTAL SCORE = 2 beauty points
