This sort of sets quickly after you apply meaning you have to blend it pretty quickly - I normally just use my fingers. Does what it says... after 6 hours it freshens up easily with a blotter but after 12 hours it looks really greasy. What I don't like is it doesn't wash off easily - tho I guess that is an attribute that leads to its staying power. Colour also is good for me - other brands are too light or pink for my yellow undertone skin.
I really love this foundation, it gives very nice coverage and an even tone. It does last pretty long, I've worn it all day at school then go straight to work. I have it on for approximately 13 hours, from 6AM to 7PM. It doesn't melt off my face and I don't have to reapply. Other foundations I usually have to do a quick reapplication to get that 'fresh' feeling. But this one, I don't. The pricing isn't too bad, it's about $10-$12. Even though it's a drug store foundation, it's comparable to MAC Studio Fix Fluid so I'd say you're getting quite a steal. I like the quality of the formula itself, very silky and doesn't feel heavy on your skin. I don't like the packaging though, because it's sort of unsanitary. It's just an open bottle. I prefer pumps because you can get an accurate amount of foundation each time and less air can get into the bottle, which allows less bacteria to form. But overall I do like this product and will be buying it again.
I got this for combination skin type. After reading many reviews, I decided to try this and i must say it isnt too bad. The packaging kind of sucks because it doesnt have a pump so you end up wasting alot of the product. The only thing is that it is more towards the heavy coverage so i use it only when it is necessary. it covers like a dream n it gives me a flawless finish. Will buy again!
I hate the feel of heavy liquid foundation, so i apply this with a damp sponge to even out my skintone, then put MSFN over it. I got this in Ivory and it's a pretty decent match. It's cheaper than MAC + this doesnt make me look like a radioactive cheeto like MAC did. It provides really good coverage, without looking cakey, which is rare since i have really dry skin. I pour the foundation into the cap since there is no pump
I love this foundation.I can not imagine my life without it anymore.
Firstly,I do not need to use concelear with as it is FULL coverage,it covers all the blemishes,spots and discoloration.It lasts whole day & night and it looks flawless.The only minus is the packaging,it should have a pump and than it would be 100% wonderful. continued >>
I love this foundation, it is the only product I consistently repurchase and continue to use. I have tried a ton of different foundations, NARS, MUFE, Clinique, MAC, etc., and this drugstore foundation is the one I always find myself using in the morning. It holds up against my oily skin and doesn't break apart when I sweat a little. I have it in the lightest shade, Ivory 110, and while it isn't a perfect match, the difference is hardly noticeable. I apply it with a moist sponge and the finish is really nice, and it applies in about two minutes with very little fuss involved. I have tried using a variety of brushes, but this just applies most beautifully with a simple drugstore sponge. It lasts all day and I rarely have to touch up, I love it and will continue to repurchase it for as long as it is available. :)
First let me say that yes, the bottle is annoying to use but Ive heard somewhere that it's better because this product gets stuck in pumps or something.
I didn't think I had large pores till I started to use foundation, It always seems to find its way in there and It gets really annoying so I tried applying this differently. First I moisturize then wait 5 minutes then prime with the Monistat chafing relief gel (it sounds weird but its been compared to very high end brands of primers) and wait 5 minutes, then I applied Revlon Colorstay in ivory for oily/combination skin (even though I have VERY dry skin, Ive heard that u should only get oily/combo because the formula is better or something) and I do it with the Sonia Kashuk Synthetic Flat top Multipurpose brush and it works great! I set it with the BE mineral veil and it is amazing! I think i have finally found my HG foundation (for those of u who don't know that means Holy Grail lol I couldn't figure out what it meant for the longest time, so I thought I would tell u) So all in all I will be repurchasing and It doesn't feel like a mask to me and I LOVE the smell.
if you're looking for a foundation that has good coverage, this would be for you. but this foundation is very heavy on my face and i don't need a lot of it. it gets a tad bit messy since there isn't a pump.
I absolutely love this foundation! There's a variety of colors compared to other drugstore foundations. It's a medium to full coverage depending on how much you build it up. It truly stays on for me and really does not budge. It's easy to apply and it dries quickly. (IMO that's a good factor) & just like everyone else, my only problem with this product is that I wish it had a pump! continued >>
I believe I have found my HG foundation in Revlon Colorstay. This is the BEST foundation I have ever used. This is better than any MAC, NARS, MUFE foundation... I have tried them all. I never thought a drug store foundation would work so well. I purchased the Caramel 400 (Oily/Combo skin) after hearing and seeing so many great things about this foundation and everything I heard proved to be true. It is especially humid in the southeastern U.S. during the summer. This foundation stayed put while I was outdoors for 3 hours. No oil was on my face and I can get as oily as the Gulf of Mexico during the summer. This foundation has a matte finish and you have to work quickly because it dries fast. Also, I was very impressed with the color selection that Revlon offers in this foundation. It matched my skin better than any other foundation I've tried and I always purchase, what I consider, the best of the best. You can purchase this for 10 USD at any drugstore so please, please, PLEASE give this foundation a try! You will not regret it.
