Revlon Colorstay Whipped $11-$14 

Revlon Colorstay Whipped I normally do not blog about Drugstore Brands… however this made the cut. I was introduced to Revlon Colorstay when I did a bridal gig in Houston and I gave it a try. Although I do not use this on my clients ( all high end products for my dolls!), I occasionally wear it when I’m on the go! For the price– you can’t beat it!  The mousse-like texture feels like silk on your skin. And, the time release formula balances skin for a flawless look. All day flexible wear without flaking, caking or feeling heavy.
