I ordered this online because it's not out in Australia yet, I was very surprised that the colour was a perfect match. Probably the closest match I have ever found in drug store. For reference I am normally an NW20 in mac and my colour in this foundation in Natural beige. This foundation is definitely not as full coverage as the liquid colorstay formulation.I didn't wear this for 24 hours, I don't know who actually would but it did stay on all day with no touch ups needed. If i had to choose between normal revlon colourstay and the whipped foundation then my heart still belongs to the liquid foundation. It is not a bad foundation I just prefer fuller coverage. I found the best way to apply this was with the beauty blender.

NC 30 and I use Warm Golden. I also tried Natural Beige which also was a good match however, that one is not nearly as yellow based as Warm Golden. this shade is very similar to maybelline smooth mousse in natural beige but slightly lighter than that one which suits my NC 30 better. There is a shade in between called Medium Beige but I didn't try it. A little goes a loooong way! like a dab with my finger is enough for my entire face for medium coverage. very easy to blend, i use my fingers. Right after application, i feel like my complexion looks cakey dry places are still visible, however after maybe 15 minutes, teh foundation settles and my skinn looks realllly nice! very dewy and flawless looking. I do get oily and i do have oily skin so I havve to blot.

I've been using this foundation for around 2 weeks or so. I first bought the shade 220 and it looked a little ashy on me since it has neutral undertones so I ended up getting 320 as well to mix them. I realize they both have a weird undertone to them on my skin (I'm an nc25) I'm very yellow (not Asian but I have Asian skintone) but after I would say 20 minutes it oxidizes on my skin and blends in to exactly my color. I have to set it with a powder because during the summer I'm semi oily. But it's very light weight and only tacky in the beginning and after it feels like skin. I also have to note I have to apply it with my fingers I can't apply it with a brush it makes my pores stand out and doesn't go on my face nice. Fingers is the way to go with this foundation.

At first I bought this in Medium beige since that was the last shade in the display at my drugstore for some reason. It was too light and really neutral toned. I returned it and waited for a sale to get it again in Warm Golden. Warm Golden however doesn't seen as warm as I need and thats the only reason I took one lippie off. The shade range isn't the best with I believe 12 shades (which isn't too bad either for drugstore shade ranges). I mainly have normal skin everywhere besides the sides of my nose which are very dry and usually foundation emphasizes it soooooo much, but this product didn't really emphasize it as much as I was expecting. It glided over the lines and didn't settle. I et very slightly oily on my T-zone at the end of the day but wow, when I got home and saw my face, I was surprised at how well this controlled oil! The jar is very heavy which is why I gave a 3 for packaging but I understand that it has to be in a jar because of the consistency, but why such a heavy jar?! I recommend scooping some out with a spatula or clean finger and then blending it in with your fingers! Using your fingers versus the brush really melts this product into your skin and makes it look pretty natural. I say give it a try especially on a good sale like the 40% off Rite aid has been doing a ton on Revlon, and if you don't like it, they have a great return policy!

I have oily, acne-prone skin. My skin was pretty clear before using this, I used this foundation for two days and broke out all over my chin and jaw line. I will not be using this product again.

I generally like this product. It has nice medium but buildable to full coverage. It isn't really 'whipped' feeling. It's a bit heavier than that. It has the consistency of softened ice cream, it's kind of cool. I don't know my MAC foundation color for reference because their foundations don't appeal to me. I'm usually in the light sector of skin tones, but not fair. I have slight pink undertones but not too much. I have the shades Buff and Sand Beige. To start, these two shades both have a slight gray tinge to them. I'm not sure how to describe it but they have a little gray cast. It isn't noticeable once buffed into the skin but noteworthy. I have applied with a stippling brush, a buffing brush and also my fingers. I prefer clean fingers because it gives the most natural finish. Sand Beige is a bit dark for me but it works because I have a tan right now however as the year goes on, I will need to switch to Buff or possible lighter. It gives a nice, semi-matte finish and doesn't include sparkle like the Revlon Photoready products do. I think the packaging is simple and pretty however impractical. It's housed in a glass jar which is very heavy and distorts the color so shade selection can be difficult because soon all the shades start to look the same. Since the jar is so big and clunky, I don't like to travel with it and it is often left at home. I took off a lippie because the combination of the packaging, trying to figure out the shade you need and the price. I paid almost $11 USD which is what I think a bit much for a drugstore foundation but it works. Staying power is pretty good, but due to my oily skin, I still need a little touch up with blotting sheets and powder by the afternoon if I put it on in the morning.

EDIT 2/2/13: recently tried this again and sorry it just does not look natural no matter how i try it. le sigh. worth a try though. EDIT 8/24: this broke me out and i am in no way acne prone. i wore this to a dinner party and woke up with 2 fresh pimples ugh. EDIT 8/8: i wore this to a wedding with my mac msfn on top and it looked fabulous in photos. i don't need full coverage every day but for that time of the month or for a random break out or something i will definitely be reaching for this!! oh crap. another foundation that i really like. this is a quick first impression review...it's definitely medium-full coverage and i applied it with fingers. nc30/5 and 320 warm golden was the way to go. i went to four stores before i found this color though. got it at walmart with a $3coupon so it ended up being around 7$ for me. doesn't feel as if i was wearing a mask like how the original liquid colorstay is. the reason why i'm writing a quick review is to let people know...this is awesome as an undereye concealer. i used it with my mac f&b and it covers completely..way better than thebalm concealer, benefit erase paste, or my laura geller real deal concealer (though i love this one for discolored spots and blemishes). heard that this photographs well and i'm excited to try it out for a wedding i'm attending. finish is a little too matte for my liking so i follow up with mac MSFN which gives a more glowy look.

i was in love with this when i first bought it, i have been wanting to try revlon colorstay for a long time but i really dont like liquid foundations without a pump, i had seen a lot of grea reviews on here and decided i must try this, kinda high price for ds foundation, im not really a fan of jars i have to stick my fingers in, but the real problem for me with this was you have to apply it very very sheer or it looks cakey, at least in my experience, i will keep it and use it if i need a full coverage look or maybe as concealer, but i wont be wearing it as my reg foundation and will def not repurchase

I really didn't like this. I have acne-prone, combination skin and I feel like this just sat on my skin, I felt kind of heavy. As a reference point I really love the texture of Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse, I still use it because I haven't found anything else I like so far but I'm not crazy about it- it's just bearable. I exchanged this because of the color several times too. Not for me

I got this foundation in the color "Caramel" from Target for about $11.99. It's very lightweight, doesn't have a strong smell like the Colorstay liquid foundation has and the texture is amazing. I would love if this foundation came in a pump but overall I would definitely repurchase this!
