This is my favorite drugstore foundation of all-time, although it's not without its problems. The packaging is misleading -- it's really, really hard to tell what color you need from the box. I'm pretty pale for winter right now, but I'm definitely an olive-medium tone for the most part, and I think I ended up with the lightest tone available. So be careful, because it's quite easy to go too dark. The sponge it comes with works fine for me, although I try to wash it periodically because it seems to gather up any dirt or dust that might be lingering, and I notice that stuff gets caught easily in the makeup itself, too (because of its thick "cream" consistency, I guess).As far as actual product performance, it's awesome. It's just the right amount of coverage, looks smooth with kind of a satiny finish. If anything, it's maybe a *little* on the moist side, but I can deal with that given the subtle, healthy sheen it gives you.

I am so grateful for this product. So, I'm currently hundreds of kilometres away from home to perform (I'm an opera singer). So. Earlier today it was time to get ready for my show. I did my hair all nice, and had my ball gown all laid out and ready, and reached for my foundation. Gasp! I'd forgotten to pack my foundation. So I race to the nearest chemist and pick this up and smash some money on the counter and frantically drive back to my hotel room. I'd never used a product like this before (I was - WAS- a firm believer in liquid foundations and not in anything that came in a compact) and was SO happy with the results. I bought the 01 Ivory Beige shade and surprisingly it fitted my fair skin tone perfectly. Went on the face easy, didn't feel heavy. I was performing on an outside stage and I was really happy to see the make up didn't slide off my face - I have very oily skin, was in a full length dress singing and dancing with the air temperature being in the mid 30s and the hot stage lights on me and I get off stage and my skin only looked a teensy bit shiny. Which is amazing considering my face usually is melting off in these situations (literally)! I just removed it, was easy to take off and my skin doesn't look angry at me and no new pimples have formed (which is amazing, yet again). I'm so happy. Do yourself a favour and get this product. It's a shame the compact isn't built more sturdy though. X

This has been my HG foundation since I was 16. I have always had oily acne prone skin. This didn't clog my pores or break me out. It's been my everyday / night foundation up until 25. Just recently I decided to try out new products but for my lazy days or quick makeup application this is still my go to. If I'm feeling fancy I'll go for the colourstay. All ways been a fan of revlon. If it works why change it. I do have to admit tho that color selection sucks. Only 5 shades I think. I'm tender peach 02. Staying power on this id say is probably like 6- 8 hours. After that I start getting oily and greasy. I'm sure powder would fix that though I've never bothered with it. Anyway I absolutely recommend this. It really is one step. Quick 1 minute foundation application and out the door. High coverage. Don't go crazy with it cuz it will cake after 2 or 3 layers

I saw a recommendation of this one on Sharon Farrell's (MUA) youtube channel. I think she recommended it as an affordable dupe for a MAC product.I dunno, I just wanted to revisit crÃ¨me foundations, haven't used them since the early 90s and for some reason they are all the rage on youtube.Priceline had 40% off products, I swatched the colours on my cheek and natural beige was a perfect match for my skin at the moment. At AUD$24 I was sold.I like it. Put it on using a foundation brush, started with it thick around my t-section then blend blend blend blend out to the edges. (i loathe thick foundations full coverage look, ladies, if it looks like the local bricklayer applied your foundation with a trowel, its slap). Blended well with the foundation brush, a little stickier than what you get with a liquid foundation, but the purpose of the exercise was to try a crÃ¨me foundation.I like the finish, a little matt but not unnaturally so, and standing in natural light its a nice finish, its not obvious that I'm wearing foundation, it holds up the blusher well, and it didn't need loads of concealer and all the rest.Will be interesting to see how it goes over summer in high humidity - I'm hoping it won't melt as quickly as the liquid foundations do. I'm also thinking it will be a handy product to travel with, rather than risking the more valuable liquid foundations.

I have aging dry skin and this foundation works great. I think it should be applied with a good quality sponge like a Beauty Blend and it needs to be wet. In this way, you can build the coverage you want. It can be sheer or complete coverage, whichever you prefer. I carry one in my purse just for touchup's.

This was my first time experimenting with creme foundation and I'm on the fence about it. On one hand, I love the easy application, the convenience of a compact, and the full coverage of the foundation. However, its nearly impossible to keep the compact and its puff/sponge clean, and after a while, the foundation just feels too heavy for my face. I think I prefer lighter foundations or TMs. But this is an "OK" product to try.

I had high hopes for this makeup. First of all I need something light and portable that I can throw in my bag for the times that I don't have time to put foundation on at home. Unfortunately the product didn't meet my expectations. It was very drying. When it goes on it settles into fine lines. It makes my skin look patchy and dry. Not Good!

Oh dear no! Just awful....even though I applied it with a brush, it looked so thick and caked on I couldn't wait to get home and wash it off. I was having lunch with my husband outside and he commented on how deep the lines around my eyes looked. Will throw out right away!

This is really an excellent product from Revlon, and needs more attention I believe. It's been around for a LONG time but I recently re-discovered it in shade "Sand" (I'm NC35) and it's a good match. The formula is incredible - it's like you are sponging on a liquid and you can build the coverage as needed, then it dries to a soft powdery finish and it doesn't look too heavy at all! Might not work for oily skinned folks but it's wonderful for me! Give it a try!

I loved the way this product looked when it was on. The color was good, it lasted all day, had a natural finish. What I do not like is the packaging and application. Putting the makeup on the sponge and the smearing it on my face, I had to pull so hard I felt like I was giving myself jowls. No joke. I loved the way this looked but I can't spend that much time stretching my skin to apply in the morning!
