[Revlon ColorStay Mineral Foundation]
So all of my friends have been raving about how good the mineral foundations are for your skin. I decided to give this one a try because its powder and my skin can get kind of oily and shiny once in a while.
The coverage is alright and it does take away the shine, but there are other, less expensive products that I like much better.
The price £12.50. It also always feels very heavy on my face, like my pores can’t breathe. I found it also wears off within a couple hours.
It iss such a pain to get out of the bottle so I can actually get some on the brush! I have spilled powder on my shirt about three times now. I’m taking it back to the store and getting my money back.
This is a mediocre foundation and not worth price. I think Revlon is slapping their sticker on cheap cosmetics, jacking up the prices, and we as consumers are not getting the quality blushes and foundations we expect from this established company.
Revlon Inc. operates as one of the world's leading cosmetics companies and markets its ... more
products in over 100 countries under such familiar brands as Revlon, ColorStay, Age Defying, Almay, and Skinlights. Revlon also sells skin care products (Ultima II, Vitamin C Absolutes, Eterna 27), fragrances (Charlie), and personal care products (High Dimension, Flex, Mitchum, Colorsilk). Ronald Perelman, who gained control of the company in a nasty hostile takeover in 1985, owns approximately 83 percent of Revlon. A Nail Polish Company Is Founded in 1932 Revlon's first beauty item was nail enamel. Opaque and long-lasting, it was an improvement over the more transparent, dye-based products of other manufacturers. Revlon's nail polish owed its superiority to the use of pigments, which also allowed a wider color range than the light red, medium red, and dark red then available. Initially, the revolutionary "cream enamel" came from the tiny Elka company, in Newark, New Jersey, a polish supplier to beauty salons for whom Charles Revson began to work as a sales representative in 1931. Charles Revson and his older brother Joseph distributed Elka nail polish as Revson Brothers. Within a year, however, Charles Revson decided to open his own nail polish company, going into partnership with his brother and a nail polish supplier named Charles R. Lachman, who contributed the "l" to the Revlon name. Revlon was formed on March 1, 1932. Revson had a keen fashion instinct, honed by his seven years of sales experience at the Pickwick Dress Company in New York. Coupling this with his experience at Elka, he noted that the permanent wave boom was making beauty salons more popular and that demand for manicures was rising in tandem. He therefore targeted beauty salons as a market niche--a fortunate choice whose importance would grow.
