Ugh. I thought I might actually like this foundation after reading reviews, but I definitely do not! I have fairly dry skin and many foundations tend to cling to my skin and make it look way more dry that it actually is and lawwwwwd this was one of them! I exfoliated, moisturized and primed my skin like usual but it made me have dry patches, made my skin feel tight, and definitely didn't look natural at all. Soooo disappointed.

Yuck yuck yuck okay i kind of had a feeling this would happen to me from all the reviews but no i wanted to still give it a shot and that was a fail on my part its sheer -light coverage don't let no one tell you any different it is very drying and cakey even if you exfoliate it is a clingy little thing and the thing that drove me the most crazy getting the stupid foundation out it reminded me of those old fashion restaurants that give you the ketchup in the glass ketchup bottle and you have to shake it out and it comes out a lot like a mess its so thick and i got fresh beige I'm nc30 and it was a tad too light and not yellow toned its peach so that also was a fail oh well on to the next foundation .

Absolutely love this foundation. I only used it because it's the foundation my mum uses and I receive so many compliments when I wear this. Only problem is it does break me out on my forehead with those tiny little under the skin spots/bumps. But all the foundations this ends up happening anyway and when I remove my make up they go away. I have heard a lot about this product breaking other people out but none the less I love the way it makes me look. It is a matte finish and I don't like matte at all but this is the only foundation I will make an exception for. It's also very light weight. Don't like the fact that it's got no pump though but oh well

I have used Colorstay off and on for about 10 years now. It's the kind of foundation I can rely on from a DS brand I trust. The color selection is sometimes lacking and the SPF can make my already pale self look vampiric in flash photos. I can't imagine why Revlon has not heeded the call to put it in a pump already. Coverage is pretty solid and I usually just layer a bit on any blemishes in lieu of concealer. It can be drying on dry skin (even this formula) but mixes with moisturizer well. The name is correct: it stays on F-O-R-E-V-E-R.

I Purchased this product very recently and I have to say I absolutely love it. But the one con I would have is that it says on the packaging that it's for normal/dry skin but it makes my face somewhat dry. It last a really long time it has dry finish not supper matte but
it will dry fast ( you only need a little because adding too much will make you look dryer)
I will say if you have dry skin like me, I recommened that you buy a good nourishing primer or moisturizer with spf so it doesnt give you that big of a dry finish. Adding dry foundation on top of dry skin is a big no no. But It is a really good drugstore foundation that last a really long time!
I have slashed water on my face to see how it holds up if i sweat and it really stays on you can just remove it with a basic cleanser or scrub.
I think having to buy a primer or moisturizer with it is just a tiny hassel for a really good drugstore product.

! I Highely Recommend it, just make sure your face is moisturizered if you have dry skin !

First of all, the closest color I could find for my skin tone was 250 fresh beige, which is sadly pink toned and i'm an NC30 with yellow undertones. I was surprised how light the coverage was..everyone claimed this was a long wearing full coverage foundation but it was light - medium (buildable to meduim) but I liked light-medium foundations anyway, but because it's pink toned I like to sheer it out & wear it as a tinted moisturizer and it doesn't transfer, looks like skin but doesn't last as long as I thought it would. (5-6 hours w/o fading) But people complimented my skin, apperantly my face was radiant and glowing! When I looked in the mirror my face seemed brighter and I think It was because of the pinkish tones. It looks great and feels like nothing on your skin!

pros: -long lasting -lightest shade works with skin tone -medium-full coverage -covers my moderate rosacea and acne -doesn't make me break out -not extremely pricey -not easily breakable -doesn't cling to dry areas cons: -no pump -container can be misleading on how much product is in bottle -lightest shade is on the pink side overall this foundation it great and dispute my lack of love for the packaging it is still my HG foundation and better then any other foundation from the drugstore . if you are hesitant to try it don't be you won't be disappointed ;) will repurchase when I run out and will continue to .

This is my favorite"foundation" foundation. I've been loving Physicians Formula's BB & CC creams a lot but decided to try a real foundation again. This one is the best I've found so far. I have light/medium olive skin. The type that has an apparent light green hue too. Foundations that are too punk, yellow, or orange make the green stand out. I do not think I am an alien nor an alien hybrid, well the aliens have not informed if such.... Yet.

This formula dries at a medium pace. I use Olay Sensitive SPF 15 under it. It allows enough time to spread then it sets well without being drying my skin out. The color fresh beige goes so well with my skin I can almost claim it to be a perfect match... For an alien in Earth that is.

It does make my fine lines a bit apparent, but the coverage is so wonderful I'll keep it!
It has great staying power, doesn't dry my skin out yet seems to help keep my t zone less oily.
My only three wishes would be that it came in a pump, down didn't emphasis my lines, and was came with a Jeremy Renner. Why? Because he is so sexy of course. He is sexy throughout the galaxy.

I heard so many awesome things about this foundation, people said it would cover spots and blemishes perfectly and not look too cakey, so whats not to like?

The colour selection is very good and im in the lightest one, Ivory, which is a bit too pale for me compared to the bourjois healthy mix one.

However, it dries VERY quickly so you need to move fast when you are blending and it does leave brush marks so blend VERY CAREFULLY.

So I put this foundation on hoping it would do all these things for my skin and it just didnt do it. It looked so cakey on my face and made every little hair or bump on my skin noticable and as for covering my blemishes, it just made them worse. From far away my skin looked pretty good but face to face it looks so awful and i feel so self conscious when wearing it, especially at school! And for being in the dry formulation it just made my dry patches stand out especially on my nose it looks so bad i actually wanted to cry.

I am so disappointed because really wanted it to work for me. I dont know if im putting it on right or not because everyone on youtube seems to think this is a holy grail foundation.

I'm 50 yrs old and buy the normal/dry in the color sand beige, it stays on all day, u can see a little bit of my fine lines but not to bad, this is the best price at walmart, i use this for everyday wear and for going out i use estee lauders double wear in the color pebbles . i did notice the bottle top starts cracking and breaking towards the end of the makeup but other than that its well worth the price
