Colorstay VS. Photoready

Want makeup that is flawless and weightless for 16 perfect hours? Revlon has the solution - ColorStay™ Makeup with SoftFlex™.

Revlon PhotoReady™ Makeup - for poreless, airbrushed skin in any light. Photochromatic pigments bend and reflect light to erase every flaw. Complete, yet undetectable coverage. Soft, luminous finish. 
- Oil free
- Fragrance free
- SPF 20

My comparison:
I like that Photoready has a pump so it makes it easier to use unlike Colorstay.  I like colorstay's lasting power. I wore this foundation alot over the Summer & had no problems with my makeup melting off. Photoready lasts awhile, but not as good as Colorstay.  Photoready is easy to apply & goes on perfectly without leaving streaks. Colorstay in my opinion is very streaky & dries way too fast.  I like the coverage that both gives. I think Photoready makes my skin look better than colorstay. Overall if I had to choose between the two I would pick Photoready. I like how it makes me look in pictures & real life.

Which one is your favorite?

  2. thanx for the review, i have always wanted to try the photoready, my stand by has always been colorstay-- def. need to try it out now! I agree that it (colorstay) dries to fast and yes, it can be streaky, yah no?

    im having a give-away on my blog if your interested - elf & b&bw stuff!

  3. I have been wanting a new foundation,one that gives me more coverage. I may try photoready!

  4. Colorstay is my fave! I've been wearing it for years. I
    I recently tried Photoready & wasn't crazy about it. It didn't seem to cover as well.

  5. Sadee- I love your blog!

    Erica- Thank :) I entered your giveaway.

    Tapia- I found that photoready is buildable to offer as little or much coverage as you need.

    Traci- I usually use the photoready over the foundation & really like it. Colorstay is a great foundation I just wish it wouldn't come out so streaky on me =/

  6. I have an upcoming review and comparison of both of these foundations. But the colorstay i'm reviewing is for normal/dry skin. Lovely blog and reviews :)


  7. Thanks :) & I look forward to reading your review.

  8. Colorstay is my favourite!! I bought photoready and hatttted it!! It just didn't work with my skin tone sadly!! great post!

    LoveFaye xoxo

  9. I haven't tried photoready but curious about it. I love colorstay though!It is my new fav foundation =)

  10. Miranda- The only thing I don't like about photoready is the price.. right under 14 bucks so check for sales & coupons :) I had 5 cvs bucks so was able to get it a bit cheaper.

  11. Awesome comparison! I've been wanting to try the Revlon foundations for a while and wasn't sure which one I wanted to go with. I may buy both BOGO then wear them according to how long I need to have my foundation on that day!

  12. Thanks Destinee :)
    Saturday while I was at CVS I noticed that Revlon was BOGO 50% off

  13. Thanks for the review! I have been using Bare Mineral and I love it but I wish it had fuller coverage.

  14. Great review!!
    Im in need of a new drugstore foundation
    I have the Colorstay but Im goin to try the other one.

  15. Great review, girl!
    I have the Colorstay & I love it but I agree, it can be hard to apply cause it dries so fast. I've been iffy on trying the Photo Ready one but after reading this, I feel more comfortable doing so lol

    Btw We're the same color in Colorstay! Yayy lol

  16. There is always a pro and a con to every product. I have never tried any of these, but I love REVLON and would love to pick up one sometime.
