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).
