Revlon ColourStay Whipped Creme Makeup comes in a weighty glass jar with a sleek, shiny black lid.
It boasts 24-hour wear, and the shade I won was #150 Buff, which is amazingly the shade I wear in the liquid version. What luck!
The opening for the foundation is slightly smaller than the jar and is topped with a thin plastic cover to keep the product extra fresh.
And here's what the foundation looks like! As you can see, it's a thick, creamy consistency that looks quite rich.
The formula is so thick, that I can place a bit of it on the end of my finger without any dripping. In the photo below, I'd had a dollop of it on the end of my finger for several minutes (couldn't get my camera to focus!), which allowed the product to warm slightly. Even with the extra warmth, it did not come close to running or dripping. Much unlike its liquid counterpart!
And here is the Whipped Cream version swatched beside the Liquid version on my inner arm (MAC NC15 skin tone). Both are in the shade Buff.

As you can see, the Whipped Creme version is thicker and slightly darker than the liquid version.
And now for a before and after! Here's a picture of me wearing only moisturizer and primer:
And here are two photos of me wearing the Revlon ColourStay Whipped Cream foundation only:

As you can see, it has excellent coverage, evening out the redness in my skin and covering minor blemishes with ease.
And here are a couple pictures of a completed makeup look with the ColourStay Whipped foundation as a base:

And now for a full breakdown of the product's claims and my impressions!
Overall, this product claims to combine a rich, luxurious feel without an oily finish or heavy texture. With 24-hour wear to boot. A hard feat to achieve!
I'll be happy to use this foundation throughout the colder months when the ColourStay Liquid formula is a tad drying on my skin. This won't be forever replacing my beloved ColourStay Liquid, but is a nice, luxe-feeling treat for fall and winter! Thanks again, Sandra, for your generous giveaway!
Hope you found this review to be helpful! Have any of you tried out this formula? Any other favourite foundations for fall and winter?
Thanks for reading!
