Spotted this on a trip to the US (I live in Vancouver) and the colour selection varied depending on which drugstore I went to...odd seeing that it is a permanent product and not LE. One would assume that retailers would consider carrying the whole shade range rather than a handful. Anyway, I purchased this in two shades to mix together---Sand Beige and Warm Golden. My best match in Revlon colorstay liquid (combo oily) is a mix of Sand Beige and Golden Beige, thus the reason I purchased two shades in the whipped formula. I find sand beige to lack some of the yellow undertones, just as it does in the liquid version while Warm Golden is too dark for me, so a mix of the two shades is my perfect NC25 shade.The formula reminds me of cool whip or some sort of frozen dessert topping but deflates upon application and melts beautifully on the skin. This blends like a dream, although it can feel a touch heavy if applied heavily. I haven't tested the 24hr claim and don't plan to, but it did last a good 8 hours with just a tad of shine coming through on my tzone. The coverage is medium and could possibly be heavier if layered, but again, that lightweight feeling will disappear (at least for me it feels that way). I would recommend applying your concealer first, then applying your foundation, as the foundation dries to a powdery finish. I felt as though applying any cream/liquid type product on top made that area I was trying to conceal look a touch cakey.This was priced between $11.99 - 13.99 USD depending on which drugstore I went to, but I purchased this on sale for $8/ea. I don't care for the bulky packaging but then again, I don't plan on taking this with me on a daily basis anywhere. The packaging is misleading as it appears like a lot but for the price this is quite expensive as you only receive .9fl oz. I probably won't repurhcase this in Canada, as I'm sure it will be outrageously overpriced at around $17.99 (like most of Revlon's foundations).

I bought this on a whim. I personally think the packaging is so cute and sleek. I'm lightly tap my stippling brush onto the product. I don't need a lot and it lasts all day. It's so wonderful and perfect and I'm so happy I got it. Please give it a chance! Make sure not to apply too much. You really don't need that much, but feel free to build the coverage.

I bought this foundation because Sam Schurmen *might not be spelt right* had it on her YT channel and I have the same skin problems as her. The foundation its self is great,... HOWEVER... the fact that its too thick to be in a pump kinda blows but i understand it... and the smell...when i applied it with my fingers all i could smell was...yuck.. idk... im normally not a sensative nose person but man..it was pretty bad... I did wonder if anyone else noticed in flash pictures if there face looked a bit ashy.. i am normally a mix of nc20 n nw20 *half n half squirts* and in pictures i took at an event i looked very pale/ashy in the face which i thought was really weird because it doesnt have spf... anyone else?

This is the first Revlon Colorstay foundation I have ever tried. I absolutely love how smooth the formula is and that there is super staying power. I have dry skin so I was really happy when this formula didn't show all of my dry skin. Since I have never tried the liquid color stay liquid I can't really compare it to that. However, I will definitely buy this again. I need good staying power as I have long days and have tried the Maybelline super stay foundation (really cake on my dry skin) and he Almay Truly Lasting Color (kinda waxy and didn't seem to do much for me). I definitely would recommend this for people with various skin types.

I saw this foundation all over YouTube! So I just had to get it. I got Natural Tan and it looked sooo dark when I opened it. But once I applied it to my face, it matched perfectly. I used my ELF Studio Powder Brush and it blended in perfectly. It's so easy to blend and it looks so flawless and natural. My skin but better. AND it was only 11 dollars at Walmart.. WIN!!! :)

I have a normal to oily skin. I have oily t-zone. I am a C4.Packaging: I would really prefer to have if in a pump bottle rather than in a jar. Its unsanitary and messy.Color: I have trouble finding the right color for me, it was like a hit on miss. I am a C4, I got the warm beige. Its a tad lighter on my skin but I can still get a way with it. Its hard to find the right color on a the on the see thru glass the seem to look the same on the outside.Consistency:it is really like whipped cream. Coverage: medium buildable, i just put small dots all over my face and it covers really well. I dont need to use concealer. I have small red bumps and light blemishes which was slightly visible with one layer. Another layer would be full coverage.Texture: I really like the way it feels on my skin, it doesnt feel like i have anythin on it.Staying power: It really does stay for long, I havent tried wearing it for 24hrs but the longest time ive worn this was 12hrs. I am really impressed with it.Finish: I would say its like demi matte to dewy finish.Application: after moisturizer & primer, I put a small amount of product all over the face in small dots and buff it in with a buffing brush. It gives me a flawless finish. I set it with MAC MSF in medium & spray with fix +. I would buy this product again if it was in a pump bottle.

Strangely, just like feebeewhiskers said, I also noticed a strange metallic taste in my mouth when I tried this foundation! I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this?I'm going back to the liquid Colorstay foundation as it applies and performs better on my skin.

Oh man, I tried. I have combo skin and my cheeks can get dry. I've been looking for a foundation that looks like a better version of skin, but when applying this foundation with a foundation brush, it accentuates the dryness and flakiness of my cheeks. Up close, it looks cakey. From afar, it evens out my complexion pretty well. A plus that there's no SPF since my skin reacts to it.NOTE ON COLORS: I e-mailed Revlon and they replied that the colors with warm undertones are Warm Golden, Natural Tan, Early Tan, Caramel (dunno why lighter shades aren't on this list). In addition to perusing MakeupAlley, I've been watching YT reviews in an effort to find the right color for my skintone. Surprisingly, I've seen a range of light- to darker-skinned girls use the same shade (usually Warm Golden or Natural Tan) and they all say it's perfect for their skin tone. Can someone check this out and please explain in another review? I have Warm Golden and it's too light, but a comment on one of these vids has said that the colors are pretty forgiving.

I don't like to wear foundation but I kept hearing so many good things about this so I had to try it.....and its amazing I love it! I won't stop using this anytime soon. For those who are a nc30....I just went to Mac to get matched this week and they said I was a nc30 so what I'm wearing in this foundation is warm golden....I don't know if you should listen to anyone else who says they are nc30 because it is the summer and they could have tanned and got darker...I've seen some of them wearing darker shades so I hope it helps!

Unfortunately this product just didn't work for me. I have given it a few chances and tired different application methods but I can’t get it to work on my skin. (For reference I am about N10 and combo skin)The color Ivory is an almost perfect color match for me, actually it is one of the closest matches I have ever gotten in a foundation, which makes me even more sad that it didn’t work for me.I love the feel of this foundation when applying, it feels very silky and light going on, however after about 10 minutes on my skin it feels so heavy and mask like, I have a sudden urge to wash my face.The other issue I have with it is that when I go to set it with powder the foundation is disturbed and becomes patchy looking (the first time this happened I thought maybe I didn't let it "set" long enough, but it happened again the next time even when I allowed 15 minutes between foundation application and powder).I have found that it works pretty well as a spot concealer, and I have used it that way on occasion, however I have other concealers that work better.I am disappointed that this product did not work for me.
