REVIEW:Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup

Hello So I am finally back with a new post :) and this one is actually very least for me haha
I already made a video about this product on my YouTube channel a couple of weeks ago but I also wanted to have one on my here it goes 

The Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup is new and I had no idea it was out until the day I saw it at CVS and decided to buy it. It is more expensive there (I paid $13.49 for it)
The first thing I noticed is that they didn't have that many shades to chose from so I went for the darkest one they had on display which is 400 early Tan. I used the Colorstay liquid foundation in Early Tan so I figured it was probably similar, but not, this one is actually darker and more of a neutral shade which bothers me a bit but not enough for me to not use it.
I wish it was more yellow but it still works. The Packaging is a bit different than what I am used to have but it is very convenient due to the fact that the foundation is thick. It is glass and it had a little plastic top that annoys me so I threw it away 

Like it??
YES!! not only do I like it, I LOVE IT! my skin type is normal to combination, some foundations can make my t zone ridiculously oily...not this.
Well it is very different, it is thick but not nasty thick that makes it hard to work it. It is very blendable and gives me a nice coverage. I say its light to medium coverage depending on how much you apply, and it claims to be buildable to full coverage...I personally haven't tried that because I am pleased with one layer of this foundation. It also claims to last 24 hrs? now, I don't know about that, but it has lasted up to 10 hrs on my face. Once I apply it I don't have to touch up with powder throughout the day which I love because I don't carry a makeup bag with me. 
How I apply it:
Well I always use a primer, then I dot it all over my face and blend it with the ELF studio powder brush (flat top) I use a bit of the Rimmel Stay Matte powder to set it and I am good to go.
Final thoughts:
I have noticed that I do not get shiny at all with this foundation, my makeup looks good even when I am outside in this nasty humid weather in Texas. Like I mentioned, I don't have to touch up and it is long lasting.
I am very happy with it and has quickly become my favorite foundation. Other things I'd like to mention is that this foundation doesn't seem to oxidize on me and also it doesn't really transfer which is also a plus. It doesn't look cakey and gives like a natural matte finish, my favorite and it didn't break me out, but then again nothing really does.
Anything bad?
its not yellow enough...that is it in my opinion.
I personally enjoy this foundation and I hope you do too if you decide to purchase it.
I hope I didn't leave anything out and if you have any questions, leave a comment.
