Hello Gorgeous Gals, Being a huge Revlon fan, I keep collecting Revlon products, so today, I am going to review another Revlon product, the Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder. Since I have oily skin, I have to carry a pressed powder with me since my nose gets oily. So, when I got the Revlon mineral mousse, I had to get the pressed powder also since it claimed to stay for 16 hours.
I thought it would be so wonderful to be on the go without getting worried about the shine that comes with oily skin. So, let’s get on with the review.
Revlon ColorStay jet milled formula for ultra fine, silker texture helps to minimise shine and creates a fresh, flawless finish that wears upto 16 hours over make up. Softflex technology provides a light weight, comfortable feel all day. never looks dry or cakey. smooth over make up , consealer or bare skin.

My Take on Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder in Deep:
The pressed powder comes in a cute black case with a mirror inside. It has a sponge applicator which is quite useful. I like the fact that you have to press a button thing on the case and then it flips open (sassy right), so that makes it very travel friendly. The pressed powder itself is pressed so sturdily that even after dropping it a million times, it did not budge from its case and no breakage at all. I got it a year back, so it is about time that I do a review.
I got the shade “Deep” which is the last shade available, but personally, I feel all dusky girls are not going to be happy with the shade. This particular shade which is the last one will suit wheatish complexion. Revlon should have had some more shades available. I use this powder on top of my moisturised skin as it hides the little God-given flaws on my face.
This is a good product but it definitely does not live up to the 16 hours claim. My face turns violently oily after just 5 hours and I really need to pay attention and keep a wet wipe in handy or else the powder separates from the oily skin and give a very ugly look. It looks like fresh white paint on the face and when I touch, it actually sticks to my finger (eeeeeyyyyeeewwww!! gross!!), so the powder does stay on, but not in a good way and it does not wash off with a splash of water, I have to rub and scrub it away.
I was very disappointed with this product after having such a wonderful experience with other Revlon products and this was a total letdown.
Pros of Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder in Deep:
- Small flaws can be masked.
- Packaging is cute and travel friendly.
- Gives a matte finish.
Cons of Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder in Deep:
- Does not live up to the 16-hour claim (duhhh), it helps for 5 hours maximu.
- Limited shades.
I just did not want to waste it, so I use it sparingly and I am always alert and keep checking myself in the mirror or I just use it on my arms (heheheh).
Will I Repurchase Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder in Deep?
No, I will not make the same mistake again. I will rather buy a pressed powder from another brand for a much lesser price.
