It applies very smoothly, and is easy to blend in. It doesn't get cakey, or "stuck" before you are done blending. It has a very pleasant, very light scent to it as well. It is a medium to full coverage, even when I mixed it with my facial lotion, it still gave me a medium coverage. The finish is matte, with just a touch of the softest sheen, not at all glowing or shiny or greasy. It claims to last 24 hours, but I wasn't about to test that out. Instead I put it through two hours of dance class in addition to wearing it all day. As the sweat started rolling down my face, I could feel the foundation on my face in a not so pleasant way. Not a deal-breaker, though. At the end of the day, if I dragged my finger across my face, the foundation actually pilled up and rolled off my skin in little balls, which was very strange. I think it had a lot to do with how much I sweat in ballet class. Still, not a deal-breaker if you don't plan on going through some intense physical activity in your day. And it didn't move as long as I didn't touch it, anyway. Especially for the price (I got mine at Target for $10), this is a great alternative to much more expensive department store brands. I put that I wouldn't buy it again, because for me this wasn't fabulous enough to keep me from trying a different kind when I run out. But still a great product!

I have just tried this once so far, and just wanted to mention that it looks really flaky on my skin, even when I used moisturizer first. This might have to do with me having combination skin that is very dry in the wintertime though, so I have bought the one for dry skin and will try that too.I'll update this as soon as I've tried it out more.

I can't rate this highly enough. I've been using this for about 8 years now and have no desire to try anything else. This doesn't break me out, doesn't morph colors throughout the day, stays completely put, covers extremely well and has a wide range of natural looking colors to choose from. I've been tempted to try something new because I'm curious if I'm missing out on something else but everytime I go to look for something else, I ask myself why would I want to replace this? It's perfect!

My HOLY GRAIL Foundation.. straight up!It's better than MAC (in my opinion)-It's buildable so I don't need to use concealer: I just dab extra on my spots with a sponge.-I apply it with a makeup sponge.-It keeps my skin matte ALL DAY! unlike other foundations-I use 3 shades (for contouring purposes) and I set it with my favorite face powder.-I get COMPLIMENTS FOR DAYSI remove it at night using "light" Olive Oil. I rub it all over my face (while in the shower) and then I rinse it off. I then wash my face with Cetaphil for Normal / Oily skin.(I repeat these steps twice to make sure it's all off.) And then I leave some Olive Oil on my skin (because it's good for the skin).I then like to wipe my face by putting toner on a paper towel and I see NO MAKEUP LEFT on it.YaaaY!

This is my go-to foundation when I need my face to stay in place all day. It is a thick liquid that smells a bit like paint. It sets pretty fast, so I apply it with my fingers, then smooth and buff it around with a flat-top brush (elf powder or Ecotools flat-top buffing). I set it with a bit of Black Opal Oil-Controlling Powder.Colorstay dries to a matte finish, but it can look a bit dewy after 5-6 hours so I blot with Boscia blotting papers. This foundation is not moving once set. It does not transfer or melt or disappear from my nose. It does not even break me out. I can wash it off at the end of the day and have no additional bumps or rashes. However, it can feel a bit heavy on my face. It's also full-coverage, which is usually too much for my everyday look. I generally reserve this for all-day affairs.For what it is, this foundation does the job. Lovely finish, stays all day, no transfer, and a good color match for me. I wear 400 Caramel, but I have mixed in 380 Rich Ginger with it in the past. I recommend trying this if you need a seriously long-wearing, transfer-resistant foundation at a generally affordable price.

This foundation keeps you matte (I am in the shade Natural Tan), and it is full coverage. It looks very unnatural though and a little thick. It is a good foundation, and I would use it for a special occasion or an interview. Would not recommend this for everyday wear, unless you like heavy coverage.

I hate this foundation!!!! If you want to look like you are wearing a mask, or never want to take it off, then this is the foundation for you. I applied this with my real techniques flat top brush and no matter how much I blended it just looked so bad. I only used like a pea size amount!!! When I went to wash it off I had to try 3 times. Even a washcloth would not remove this, I still have some on my face. I also use a really good cleanser that always removes my foundation. If only this was a different formulation because the shade was spot on.

It's pretty good, the only downside is that this foundation can feel stiff and it's hard to apply bronzer and illuminator over top. Other than that, it matches my skin, offers buildability, has a matte finish all day, does not oxidize, and doesn't break out my skin. I just hate anything that uses glass containers because it isn't biodegradable!

I will never use anything else! People have told me that my skin looks "airbrushed", "perfect", "flawless." It stays on all day through EVERYTHING: running, sweating, humidity, and EVEN SWIMMING & SHOWERS! People I know are amazed at how well this foundation looks.I have tried every kind of foundation and concealer but this is the BEST by far because it NEVER comes off. I have combination skin, so my T-zone becomes somewhat oily throughout the day, especially my nose. Other foundations rub off due to the oil. but this foundation stays put COMPLETELY. NEVER WEARS OFF!I am super insecure about showing my bare skin. Using this foundation makes me feel comfortable and so much more confident in my own skin. I use the color Nude and it matches perfectly with my skin tone.I apply using a concealer brush and blend using a beauty blender.I set it with either Maybelline's Dream Wonder Powder in Classic Ivory or Bare Minerals Matte Powder in Golden Fair.

this foundation works better for me than the myriad others i have tried recently. it is nothing miraculous. it doesn't transform my face into an angelic expanse of poreless and flawless flesh. but it looks natural, evens out my skin tone, and does a decent job of minimizing the appearance of hyperpigmentation/acne scars (though i still use concealer over those parts). because it is a liquid (and formulated for oilier skin), it will emphasize dehydrated/dry patches on the skin, though the effect is minimal, and seems inevitable if you forego a creamier product. applying in thin layers is the best method for this foundation. i also quite like the packaging - it's easy to dab a bit of product on the back of your hand and apply from there.it has not broken me out, or irritated my skin.
