Very good coverage but hard to remove :-( apart from that it is amazing foundation considering its price (also very very long lasting)
Feels like a little too heavy on the skin. Hard to apply with just fingers. The thing I hate most is that it oxidizes so quickly. It makes me look like oompa loompa in minutes!
I used to think I had complete greaseball skin - Then I tried this product and realized that I was just using all the wrong products before. It's the first foundation I've used that actually didn't make my skin totally shiny. I've enjoyed using this product but I'm ready to move onto something better - Ironically, it didn't stay on my skin very well. If I accidentally swiped my hand across my nose, it would leave skid marks. So basically, if I was careful and didn't touch my face, it would be fine. I also found that I had to use a lot to build up on any discolored spots or zits - I was sort of piling it on. With that said, it's a good heavier foundation that goes on pretty naturally. I just think I can find something better.
Could this be one of the best foundations in the universe?! Quite possibly! Being of very fair skin I find it quite hard to find a liquid foundation that will match me perfectly and deal with my oily t-zone without melting off my face by lunch time! I was thrilled when I discovered Revlon color stay makeup for combo/oily skin! I use the lightest shade (110 ivory) which has a pleasant make-uppy smell. Application is always very smooth (I use fingers or a brush to apply) the only problem being the lack of a pump dispenser, as many have already mentioned! I have no issues with caking and oily areas and kept at bay all day with a lightweight smooth feel! Not one to miss! I LOVE it!!
I have been using this foundation now for about 4 years. I get very oily around my t-zone, and this stuff makes it so that I only have to blot 2 or 3 times a day. It stays on throughout an entire work day without melting off or separating. I'm pretty fair, so I use the lightest shade (Ivory). I have tried other long wearing foundations, but this one is the best one I have come across for the price. LIke many people, I wish the bottle had a pump on it, but other than that, I can't complain.
I do love this foundation! I find the coverage, the longevity is fantastic and just what I need for an 8 hour shift at work. Its literally the only foundation that doesnt go all gammy in the corners if my nose! And I've got normal skin! The only issue I have with Revlon Colorstay is the shade range! It's great if you have pink/beige undertones, but for us yellow toned girls? Nothing! So what I do is I use the shade Buff, and mix it with Mac Studio Fix Fluid in NC15 to yellow it out a bit and the overall colour is much better. I always found just using Revlon all by itself, my skin looked ashy and grey by the end of the day which wasn't working too well with my yellow neck!
Ladies, first I want to mention that I never wrote a review on a make up product before but was motivated to do it as a WARNING to others. Let me begin by saying that I never suffered from acne and Im not acne prone except for a pimple here and there before my period. I have used in the past all types of foundations from cream to liquid from Lancome to Mac and never had issues. I bought this because I heard good things about it and plus it's much cheaper than brand name foundations. The first month or so I didn't have any problems with it aside that it did make me look cakey and the color was wrong for my skin tone. After that I started to break out so bad I cried myself to sleep!!! It was so bad, not just little pimples but huge, red, painful zits! Mostly on the cheeks area. It went on for 2 months, one after another. I couldn't figure out what was going on, I am a healthy female with normal hormones, I even went for a check up to see if something was just wrong with me health wise, nope. It then occurred to me that it's this crap foundation that was causing this. I stopped using it immediately and my skin cleared out in a week. I don't know why it affects some people and not others but I have never suffered from such acne in my life, not even when I was a teenager! I would never recommend this to anyone unless I want to see them totally miserable. AVOID this product!!
I have bought this product along with the concealer, gave this one away.
I have the "medium" shade but it's way too light! --- and this is apparently the darkest shade available to them. looks really bad on photos (white mask) looks OK in person.
It is not lightweight so you can feel the weight of this foundation on your skin --- would rather go for Maxfactor foundation compared to this one.
So many people raved about this online, when I tried it... I was not that happy. :( specifically the price -- I have oily skin - it did mattify the skin but I did not enjoy wearing it... The concealer though is pretty OK.
I love this foundation! It's light yet has great coverage and I use it so much. I have normal skin so it keeps my face matte without having to put on a powder, which I love, though people with oily skin may find they still need a powder. It even lasts all day, I love it! And the best part was that I bought it from my chemist when it was $30 off! It was $5 and I just grabbed it off the shelf! I am really pleased with this product.
I'm in the minority here, I'm not a fan of this foundation. It looks so mask like, breaks me out, and Is wayyyy too matte. I have dry skin that can get oily since I live in a humid climate, but I still do not enjoy matte make ups on my face. This is no exception, it settles into fine lines, and if I have an active pimple, it cakes up on top of it and makes it way more obvious. Will not repurchase.
