Revlon Adds a Pump to ColorStay Foundation

Revlon ColorStay cult, it’s your turn to rejoice. The drugstore foundation is hailed as a favorite by many… I’ve even had makeup artists use it on me! With its long-lasting and buildable coverage, there aren’t many complaints to be made against the product from makeup lovers… except the fact that there’s no pump. For years, one had to pour the foundation out and hope you get enough but not too much… that is, until now!

Yes, you heard me right. Slashed Squad member Shannon (@shanmchenry) gave me the scoop that Revlon not only gave the formula an upgrade—raising the SPF to 15— but also added a nice convenient pump on the bottle to dispense product in a convenient and controlled way.

Apparently, other countries already got the pump upgrade in the past year, but it’s finally rolling out here in the States for Spring. Shannon sported the new packaging in a small town in Indiana, but I still haven’t seen them in Los Angeles drugstores yet. However, it’s easy to miss the upgrade when just glancing at the bottles, since the new and old versions look so similar.

You’ll be able to tell the bottle with the pump apart from the old packaging by the semi-translucent top that lets the pump peek through, and also the SPF 15 label on the front. Side by side, you can also see the new cap is slightly taller than the previous one.

I definitely suggest that you go in-store to hunt down the new Revlon ColorStay bottles, since ordering online will be a complete gamble on whether or not you get the upgraded product (and especially since retailers will probably be trying to get rid of the discontinued packaging).

Have you spotted the new Revlon ColorStay packaging near you yet?

    I do not like the pump. When makeup gets low and sticks to the side of the bottle, you have to take the pump out and make a mess to get to what is left. Go back to the old bottle.

    Do these pumps lock??

      Oooh, I’m not sure! It doesn’t look like they do from the photos, since usually locking pumps have arrows to indicate which way to twist open.

    I’ve spotted near these near me and I’m hoping that more brands will start adding pumps to their foundations as well (L’Oreal True Match for example!).

    Yes! Finally Revlon listened. I recently purchased the foundation – with the pump and love it.

      That’s great! I’ve recently heard mixed opinions about the pump, some say it’s not helpful when others say it’s awesome!

      Do you notice a difference in the formula? I’ve heard the new ones make people break out?

        I bought 3 bottles with the pump, something isnt right. Its making my face look cakey its just not blending how it use to. Im a make up artist and i swore by this foundation, and im so sad that i have to find another brand because the formula changed : (

          Have you tried shaking? I know that with some pump foundations since they’re only skimming off the bottom of the product, sometimes you could be getting only part of the formula while the oil or serum etc sits at the top.
