I prefer this to the original Colorstay because it's easier to work with. It provides full coverage right from the first application, and creates flawless looking skin. I like that it doesn't feel heavy, or look cakey on my skin! It lasts a long time and wears well but my only gripe is the bulky packaging. If I wanted to travel with it I'd have to depot some in a plastic pot, which is not a big issue for me. Overall, I like the foundation and I think it feels high end and definitely looks high end :)
Love love love this foundation. It's medium to full coverage and long lasting. I happened to find my perfect shade as well.
It is extremely hard for me to find a foundation that I like most everything about. I am a huge Jaclyn Hill fan and I tend to go with her suggestions. I tried the L'Oreal True Match Lumi that she suggested to her viewers- and wasn't that fond of it. It felt so greasy. I heard her talk about the ColorStay Whipped- and I figured I'd give it a try. Not expecting much, I put it on and surprisingly it felt like butter going on the skin. I've got combination skin and so far so good. It does not feel heavy or greasy, and it feels like it's in place, but not to the point that it feels like you have a glob of foundation glue on your face. I am very happy with this product! Thanks to Jaclyn Hill for recommending this! I think I've found "the one"! Foundation wise :) Haha! Bottom line, I would definitely recommend this to people! Love it.
I waffled between giving this product three stars or four, but went with three because it's a bit cloggy. I didn't break out in horrible cysts all over my face, but it definitely plugged up my pores and was really hard to get off. Also, it's incredibly hard to find a color match because the jars are made of really thick glass and they all look pretty similar through that lens. Oh yeah, and it's obviously jar packaging which I know annoys a lot of you. I'm not so bothered by it, but I would've preferred a pump or pour jar. Anyway, the foundation itself...is not bad. It has the fluffy texture I was expecting, so I was pleased with that. The smell is negligible, not bad, not good. If you touch it, it seems a little bouncy and gel-like. When you rub it on your skin, it's pretty silky. I would say it's medium coverage even if you try to build it up, not full coverage. It definitely evened out my skin tone, but didn't do a great job covering acne. It's also a little drying so I would always slather on lots of moisturizer beforehand. It lasted all day for me, though, so that was a plus. I'd always wanted to try the Revlon Colorstay original, but never bothered so when this came out, I decided I would go for it because it seemed really nice. I'm not totally disappointed and I used about half before I gave up, but I can't have foundation that clogs me. If you've got resilient skin that doesn't need a ton of coverage, then I would go for this. If you're prone to clogs, though, skip it.
I love this. I have such a hard time finding the right mix of coverage, oil control and staying power and Colorstay Whipped does a fantastic job on each count. It covers my rosacea really well, but isn't totally full coverage like the liquid Colorstay. I'm already on my second jar and I'm in love. I use it with Urban Decay De-slick over the top and it lasts all day. I also think the color selection is really good. True Beige is right on for me. My only suggestion to Revlon would be to make a bigger jar. I used mine up pretty fast, comparatively speaking. Overall though, this is the only thing I wear and I wear it everyday. Love it!
It doesn't really matter how great the texture, finish or lasting power are, because the SHADES are HORRIBLE and unflattering for us yellow/olive tones girls. Way too pink and dull/grey. For reference, I am a NC30-35, Armani 6, and I tried to make this foundation work in shades 320 (too light and pink), 330 (dark enough but too pink) and 370 (too dark).
I LOVE this foundation. I also have the regular colorstay foundation, which I would also recommend, but I like the whipped one better. This foundation has excellent coverage, and I have a fair amount of redness on my cheeks, which can be hard to conceal without looking cakey. My skin is dry, but this does not accentuate dry patches. It looks very natural and lasts all day. In fact, this looks better as the day goes on. It also does not break me out, although I don't really have problems in that area. I would recommend putting this on with your fingers, as it does not go on well with a Beauty blender or brush. The packaging is a little frustrating as I prefer pumps but I can deal with it. I am giving it four stars because of the packaging and because I have to use my fingers. The price is great, only 12-13 dollars which is a great deal for what you get! Overall I think this is an amazing product. Definitely one of my drugstore staples. Way to go Revlon!
My HG is ELDW or ELDW Light. I love both but had heard so many positive reviews about the ColorStay Whipped that I thought I would give it a try. It broke my face out horribly after awhile of using. I really liked the way it looked on my face when it first went on but by late afternoon, my face was a shiny mess as well. I tried changing my moisturizer, thinking that the one I was using was too heavy. After using the first jar up, my face was a mess and I went back to my HG ELDWL. I had clogged pores all over my face. I never get that from Estee Lauder. I think from now on I will stick with my old favorite.
This is my go-to foundation for long work days during the summer. I have normal to slightly oily skin (not acne prone) and this lasts through 10 or so hours of work even when the air-conditioning isn't working well. I live in a climate that is very hot and humid during the summer.
I use the color Buff. Skin-tone wise I am around N/NC 15 in the summer when I've gotten a little sun. I apply this sheerly since I have decent skin other than some minor redness in my cheeks. I get a fairly good match even though from reading the other reviews it sounds like this could be either too dark or too light for me based on my skin tone.
This has not dried out my skin or broken me out but I don't typically have either of those issues from foundations.
I think that the price is reasonable for this foundation. It's a little expensive for the drugstore but I think it performs as well as a more expensive foundation providing you can find a good color match.
My first jar of this had the lid crack when I was about 3/4 of the way through the foundation. When I depotted it into another jar, it seemed to dry up more quickly but I was able to use most of it.
For the people who are concerned about dipping your finger into the jar and contaminating the product, I use a clean q-tip to scoop a little out each time I use this.
Application: This is a smooth, creamy foundation that is easy to apply with my fingers or a brush.
Overall, I am happy with this foundation. I've tried a lot of different ones and this is great for long, hot, humid summer days.
