I was incredibly disappointed in this product. I have always had a lot of luck with mineral makeup and this one really flopped. I have tend to have dry skin when I apply powders and since this one hydrates I thought I would give it a try. In the container it looks like a regular powder and once applied it has a very sheer finish and felt wet. I figured it was the 'aqua' factor and when I was applying it I noticed small specks of shimmer all over my face. I figured MAYBE the 'aqua-ness' was little micro beads of moisture and once they absorbed into my face that they would vanish. I was wrong, there is shimmery bits all over my face and I really hate how it looks. After applying it my face feels almost sticky but just enough to prevent you from touching your face which is incredibly annoying.So far it has lasted quite well though the day and with my extremely sensitive skin I haven't noticed any negative repercussions. I'm the kind of person that hates to throw product away so I will try to find an alternative way to use this shimmer powder or maybe gift it to someone.

I've been using this for a year and i love it! I always use this after i apply my foundation to get a glowing finish look without need to take too much time on doing my makeup to go to collage. It also works well for my oily skin.

I don't even know what to say about this product. I don't get it. Sometimes I wear it after my foundation especially during summer to give it an extra glow look and I like the result. This is the only reason why I gave it a 3 out of 5. Would I repurchase it? Absolutely not. But since I hate throwing products away, I'm trying to figure out a way to use it.

So I actually bought this ages ago and I used the little applicator brush and HATED it. I hated that it felt like it turned clay-y once it contacted my skin which I guess would be cool if it didn't turn me off completely. So, I gave it to my mom and she hated it so end of that.Well, rummaging through her junk makeup I found this and I'm out of setting powder, I usually use Physician's Formula translucent powder, and decided to try it once again now that I'm a little more mature make up wise and better apt to apply it.So I put BB cream on, then wet n wild cheapo foundation on the spots that need a little extra coverage and took a flat top foundation brush and applied this powder. I didn't feel that odd 'wet' sensation and it helped boost the coverage pretty well. I will use this in place of my other powder until it runs out.I can't speak for the amount of coverage, this product by itself, but I don't think it would do that well. Not compared to other foundations and I don't see it being buildable without feeling built up....if that makes sense. ALL IN ALL,there are better foundations out there, I wouldn't buy this again but it's sufficient for how I use it.

I've been looking for a loose powder to try and i generally like revlons products so i gave this a whirl. The first thing i noticed when i put it on was a faint wet feeling? I thought it was my brush that was wet but it turns out it was the powder. I found that to be really weird but i guess that's why it's called "aqua mineral". In comparison to my old compressed foundation it did help to keep my makeup in place thourough out the day. However, I feel like it had little to no coverage and was not worth the $13.xx i paid for it. Probably wouldn't get it again. Bit too pricy for what it does or rather doesn't do.

I bought this on a whim, because Shoppers was out of the foundation I was using at the time. I tried this even with a primer, and it was shit. There was absolutely ZERO coverage, even with a primer on. And it gave me this weird, cool, wet feeling on my skin as soon as I swiped it on with the brush. I don't get it. It was such a waste of money because it wasn't entirely cheap... it has literally been sitting in my cabinet for over a year and I haven't touched it. In fact i'm just going to chuck in the garbage. This was a total fail.

I really like this product & prefer it over all the other drugstore brands powder. It gives the coverage I need without caking & gives me a beautiful glow. I have the "Light" & it's the perfect shade for my skin tone. The pros are that it's good value for money, the coverage is decent & it stays most of the day without touch ups. The cons are that the packaging is bulky as hell which means u can't carry it around unless u have a backpack..this will not fit into your clutch or small purse & that means no touch ups on the go. That's it. 1 con. I would definitely buy this again.

Imagine spritzing some oxidized loose powder with a squirt bottle and then applying the results to your face with a flat eyeshadow brush. To me, that's absolutely the most accurate way of describing this product. If I were having a bad complexion day and this was al I could find in my makeup bag, I would probably still use it. Sparingly (because it cakes and clumps). And with something, anything, other than the brush it comes with (because it's so useless, you'd get the same results trying to apply the makeup with an imaginary brush). Yes, if you dust one layer of this on ever so lightly, you could probably get away with not looking totally ridiculous, although if you have fair skin like me, you'll want to wear a scarf because the lightest shade won't match your neck. This makeup is drying, even on my oily complexion. It goes on unevenly no matter what tool you use to apply it (unless you use the brush you paid extra for because then you won't be applying it at all), and I would be shocked if I saw it on the shelves for much longer. Like most colorstay products, this makeup does stay on all day. But would you really want it to? It's interesting in that it feels kid of wet and cool going on, but who buys makeup for the purpose of experiencing an odd sensation? I am giving this two "stars" because I have found that if you have a really good translucent powder and an excellent kabuki brush you can blend this makeup enough so that it's presentable, but this takes some effort. The packaging is nice, and the product doesn't spill out of it. Sadly.

I read some reviews here and get so confused - how can you possibly NOT love this product? But then again, everyone has different skin and ways of working with make-up and/or hopes for the product. In my case, I absolutely adore it and have already three cans from this line - one a tad bit darker for summer and two in the fairest "Fair/Light" for winter. And considering that they cost 2000 yen each here in Japan, I think it says a lot about how much I like them. I have a liquid foundation from another brand but it got quickly abandoned the very same day I found this product (that I took on a pure whim... and it paid out!). It is a full-on foundation, this one (black lid), although it seems like there are other versions too. So, on to the pros with it:1. The colour matches my NC15 skin tone perfectly. Not many products tend to be light and neutral with a tiny hint of yellow'ish in them. Most are pink'ish and makes me look... well, weird.2. The cooling sensation makes it feel like it melts into my skin and becomes a part of it, creepy as it may sound, but it very for me especially in the summer when it's 35 degrees Celsius outside and I need some cooling down.3. It holds perfectly in dry windy winter and in humid hot summer.4. When it comes on it STAYS on. In a 18 hours school day, all I may need is some blotting for the nose around noon in summers.5. The longevity. I use quite a bit everyday and YET one can lasts for at least 5 months. The summer one? Not over yet, and still it was the only thing I used from June until October.6. It melts into my skin, a combined skin with acne prone areas. In the winter some parts gets more dry than others, but just prepare with a good moisterizer and there's no problem.7. On the skin, I thought it looked a bit glittery/shimmery on my hand first, but when finally on the face I see no traces of it anywhere at all. I even asked friends about it, first time when I wore it outside, but not even the most honest one who always tells me when mascara is all over the place could see anything weird with it.8. The coverage is good. It isn't a pore-covering product nor the heaviest cover (I'd say a 3) but have a primer over pores and a concealer and the result is amazing. I don't actually own a concealer but just use the foundation a bit extra, but it works like a charm that too.9. I have a tendency to fall asleep a bit everywhere, call it exhaustion or just general stupidity (coming home from the club in the morning and falling face first into bed), but even asleep with this product on I won't break out. With my liquid foundation from another brand, I wake up next morning looking like I've never heard about skincare, but with this on I look like I did the night before skin-wise. Surprisingly much staying on too, considering how I rub my face against the pillows. 10. The design is good for me, and it's round and easily goes down in any bag I own. No worries about accidentally opening it either.But, as with everything, the cons:1. The brush is shitty. I won't lie about that. It might be okay, but it doesn't do it for be AT ALL since it's too small and just annoys the heck out of me. So what do I do? Use a bigger brush. Problem solved.2. The product inside is easy to get out into the lid? Well, that's positive, but it's not as fun when you've travelling and when opening the can realizes that half of the contents have come out. It makes dipping the brush and working the product a bit more difficult. I'd love to see some changes with the design of it.3. Because of the brush that comes along, the top is unnecessarily big and annoys me. Take away the brush-holding part and the lid-top becomes half the size and I'd personally prefer that.That's all I could remember for now, but if there's any changes or such I'll make sure to edit this review.
