Review: Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation in Sand Beige with Time Release Technology

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation is by far my most favourite and never regret buying at all. The one that I have purchase was in the shade Warm Golden which turned out to be a tad bit dark for me after a few month using it. Many also asked where did I purchase the one in pump bottle, I actually repackaged it where it is more hygienic and easier to use. If only Revlon changes the packaging of this bottle, I’m sure it will be an ease for many of us. Although I love this foundation so much, I have never reviewed it but this time I’m reviewing the new improved formula with Time Release Technology.

Just like the older version of this foundation, it comes in a glass bottle like this and let me tell you that this time the foundation seems to be thicker.

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation Time Release Technology in Sand Beige - Ingredients & Swatches

Just bare in mind that this foundation contains alcohol, silica and Paraben. Sand Beige is a shade too fair for me but I could still tolerate with this shade. This shade has pink undertone and the coverage is medium to high, totally buildable.

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation Time Release Technology in Sand Beige - Application

Let’s take a look on how it turns out during the application.

  • Naked skin – My face without makeup, just applied skincare.
  • Applied foundation – I applied the foundation using a stippling brush and look at that coverage! It does conceal (but not completely)  my dark circles, acne scars and redness. The foundation finish isn’t matte, slightly dewy as you can see over my forehead and my cheeks.
  • Set with Powder – Sweep lightly using my foundation powder  and the  foundation now doesn’t look as fair, slightly mattified too.

Revlon ColorStay Liquid Foundation Time Release Technology in Sand Beige - Lasting Power

Lasting Power

  • 8:54AM – Freshly applied the foundation and the rest of my makeup.
  • 11:54AM – A quick update before I head out for lunch. My face oil slightly seep through  on my nose and I blotted it away right after. The rest of my face is not oily yet. The coverage is still looking good!
  • 3:14PM – The weather is superb humid outside and my T-zone began to oil up. The coverage seems intact but it faded underneath my nose a little bit. Blotted away the oil right after.
  • 6:26PM – Got back home and I’m getting more oily on the T-zone. The coverage is still as good as the previous update.


This foundation is as good as I have remembered it. The coverage seems to last longer than the previous version, although my face oil seeps through it but this is considered one of the best ones that I ever had. At one time I accidentally sweep my face across my BF’s shoulder, a tiny bit of foundation did transfer onto his white polo tee.  What the next best thing about this foundation is it doesn’t oxidize and the foundation remains the same just as how I applied on. I did not develop any irritation from using this foundation although my cheek area is slightly sensitive. There are 5 shades available for this foundation and this is the lightest of them all.

    • I think it depends on how often you use. I use it occasionally and I think I still have slightly less than half.
