i bought this awhile back because bare minerals was not agreeing with my oily skin it would leave me looking like a grease ball! ew so i checked out the reviews for this foundation bought it and wow! im REALLY happy that i did! this stays on for a long time i got the oily/combination.This foundation has medium coverage it doesn't look cakey either and its a pretty good concealer except for under the eyes. i last about 4-5 hrs then i have to do some touch ups with my MAC blotting pressed powder. just wish there was a pump for this sometimes i get a bit to much but anyways i would DEFINITELY buy this product again! :)
I LOVE this foundation. I believe it gives medium coverage but it is buildable. I like that you can still see my freckles but it really makes my skin look flawless and not cakey. It looks like I don't have any foundation on. I wish it had a pump though. That is my only complaint!
I LOVE this product SO much! With my super oily and acne-prone skin, I always felt that using liquid foundation would be an awful thing to do: several years ago I used to wear some by CG but broke out from it all the time. Let me say that this foundation is a breath of fresh air after using BE's mineral foundation!
What I ALWAYS look for in foundation and concealer is full-blown coverage (if not medium-full) because of my many acne scars spotted around my cheek area. So when I saw in YT videos and in various reviews people saying that it provides buildable full coverage I was estatic of course. And it's true! The scars on my face are really dark compared to my complexion and the fact that this product covers them up very well by itself in 2 simple layers is remarkable; though sometimes I still use my concealer I find myself seldom ever using as much anymore.
One thing I do hate, and as many people have stated, is the packaging. NO PUMP. I was very annoyed by that having sometimes pouring out too much and pretty much wasting the product. But there's a solution: MAC sells these small, squeezable, travel bottles that hold 1oz each (2 bottles for US $6) that're perfect for this foundation! I can guarantee that also art supplies stores, like Michael's, sell them too.
I've been using this foundation for about two weeks now and have not broken out once from it. The stay-power is very nice also; it stays on on me for the 7-8 hours I'm in school without fading. Because it's a liquid I feared that it would look oily on my skin- FALSE. It's stays fresh-looking all day and has this natural, slight dewy look (I actually don't like that so I end up applying a matte finishing powder).
All-in-all, I would most definetly buy this again. :)
Like everyone else on here I purchased this after it's rave reviews and am another one who is honestly glad she did. I have been on a hunt for the perfect foundation for a while now and have finally found my HG. I apply the product with my Ecotools stippling brush and it looks flawless I also don't understand how people have such a hard time removing it? I use yes to carrots can you c me makeup remover with a microfiber towel and it takes it off effortlessly. Yesterday was this foundations true test of crazy humid new england weather and while it was a bit dewy-er than I would have liked I still looked flawless and as if I was wearing nothing at all. Now I believe my mac color is a nc 15/20 and I use the color nude and it's a perfect match I'm just so happy my search is over, and my blush search begins :-)
Best liquid foundation I have ever used! It gives such an amazing airbrush finish when used with the mac 187 brush. The only con is that it doesn't come with a pump but I dont find that too terrible since I've gotten use to pouring out the perfect needed amount. Will definitely repurchase! It's hg status in my books
I am 44 years old and have probably tried every drugstore foundation in existance and Revlon Color Stay, by leaps and bounds, is the BEST foundation I have EVER used! It is very thick and takes some getting use to, but once you pass that barrier, you'll never leave. If you are truly looking for coverage, this is your makeup! I don't know about anyone else, but sometimes I have very long days...work all day, then maybe meet my man or friends for dinner....this makeup stays on and you look as fresh when you get home as you did when you applied it in the morning! It also comes in an array of colors, so finding a match for your skintone should not be a problem. And it works great if you just want light coverage, or use a little more for almost movie-star like coverage....to me, it is incredible and I will NEVER use anything else again.
After using up all of L'Oreal Infallible Foundation, I decided that I would try something different in regards to liquid. My first choice was to go for the new Maybelline Superstay 24 Hr foundation; and after using that product for not even a week, I was sick and tired of it. I had the worse breakouts EVER because of it, and the LIGHTEST shade they offered was entirely too dark for me. So yesterday, I made the trip to Walgreens in search of a better foundation that would match my skin to the point where it looked as if I wasn't wearing any makeup. My skin was so broken out and I explained the issue to the amazing lady at the makeup counter; she then suggested this foundation. We swatched several of the different shades and found that my PERFECT match was Buff; it's almost as if it disappeared once applied, it looks as if I'm not wearing any makeup! I also have combination/oily skin and I purchased that particular formula of the product. The consistency is light enough to where you don't have to use a no more than a dime size drop to cover your entire face. I used a little bit more under my eyes and on my blemishes to cover those discolorations. I give this product an overall 4 because I haven't been able to see how it performs in my never ending stressful days, and I like that it has a slight SPF. I also like that it doesn't make me look a corpse as some other products do, it gives enough coverage but leaves a very beautiful dewy finish that works great for spring and summer. I gave the packaging a 3 because I WISH it had a pump like the Infallible; overall this product is great. And after my horrific experience with the Maybelline Superstay, this has been a LIFESAVER!
I have a love/hate relationship with this foundation. I gave this a 4 because 1. Its comfotable to wear all day 2. Its full coverage 3. It doesnt break me out 4. Color selection is awesome 5. Hides ALL my imperfections. If your looking to try a awesome full coverage drugstore brand I suggest this one.
Only con to this from my point of view of course, It's too thick to wear during summer I have oily combination skin and this slides off my face especially with this Vegas weather but during winter this in my HG foundation.
My only wish is that this would come with a pump!
I really hate this stuff. It feels awful on the skin--very sticky and gross. It's impossible for me to find a match which is ridiculous since other DS brands do match me. In addition to the awful feel and the lack of match, it also broke my skin out like no other foundation I have ever tried. This is HG for some people, but I threw it in the garbage. If you're very fair, run far, far away from this one.
I finally decided to try this foundation after reading numerous reviews. I have tried pretty much every drugstore foundation and I have never been satisfied until now! This is my HG foundation! The formula is a bit thick but it honestly does not look like I am wearing makeup at all. Today was the second day I wore it, and I got so many compliments on my skin. I work in a restaurant after school and this makeup stayed on for me all day, even in the very hot kitchen! My skin looked flawless all day and I am extremely happy with this product.
The only bad thing I have to say is I wish it came with a pump because I feel like I am wasting product. Otherwise this stuff is amazing!
