It seems this foundation is better for those who don't have oily skin.I use this in natural beige. I do use the Revlon Photoready Colot Correcting primer, and it makes a big difference on my overall matte appearance. I have issues with redness and dark circles, this helps with both.I'm on a tight makeup budget and can't afford constant trial and error, I just stick with what works.

I used this foundation for about a year. In this time I only bought two bottles even though I used it everyday. First of all I like that this foundation is spf 30 as you should always protect your face from the sun (nobody wants wrinkles).Packaging - everyone would prefer a pump as you sometimes end up with too much.Cost - I really loved this foundation so I didn't mind paying a little more than the average drugstore foundation.Staying power - I have oily skin now however I used this when my skin was dry/combination. I wouldn't say it lasts 24 hours but it did last on me for a good 10-12 hours without having to touch up.It doesn't transfer or come off when you touch your face. Shade - there are 9 shades available in this range and I used sand beige as I used to use tanning beds. It matched my skin tone well so no complaints there.Coverage - it does what it says on the tin. I applied it with a real techniques buffing brush or beauty blender and I found I could build it up to full coverage pretty easily.I would say that you can feel it on your skin although I blended it out well & it didn't look like I was caked in make up.I got a lot of compliments when wearing this foundation saying my skin looked flawless.Reaction on skin - I have had bad skin on my chin for the longest time (it comes and goes) so I couldn't be sure it was this foundation that broke me out but I would make sure you cleanse, tone & moisturise at night as I don't think it's ever a good idea to goto bed with make-up on. I would & have recommended this foundation to a friend.

I bought the lightest shade, porcelain I think, and find it just doesn't blend or sit well on the face. Really took a lot of blending to get rid of the streakyness and then after all the blending I was left with a very low coverage. Maybe the darker shades with more pigment would be better but porcelain just wasn't offering much coverage. I also found it dried out my skin a lot and didn't help with oil control. I know many people that love this foundation but fail to see why! I only use this foundation to mix in with more pink undertone brands I have as this one is quite yellow so it's good for getting the perfect colour match with mixing but that's it for me.

I have used this foundation forever. I didn't even notice they reformulated it. Anytime I try to use a new foundation, I always come back to this. Pros*It lasts an ETERNITY (and my skin is ridiculously oily). I can swim, hike, work, even make out vigorously and this is STILL on lol. No transfers. Definitely one of the top reasons that I always use this foundation. I only need to blot 1- 2 times a day. Nothing beats this staying power.*Light enough shade for my PPP skin.*No breakouts whatsoever*Full coverage. Thanks to spirolactone/ cerave/ olay pro-x, my skin is acne free! I only have red marks to cover and this does the job easily. However, this foundation was there for me when my skin was out of control. I could apply one thin layer with a brush and then spot conceal bad patches w/o looking splotchy.*Really nice finish when used with a brush*Cheap (I have tried double wear, kevin aucoin SSE, various mac foundations, cinema secrets, RCMA, makeup forever, and kat von d....none of which came even close to replacing my colorstay).CONS*Packaging. Would way rather have a pump, but it's no biggie.*Now that my skin is clear, I would like to find a lighter coverage foundation. Have yet to find one that lasts like this. I will continue using this, but with less product and with a lighter hand :)

I've been using this foundation for about 6-8 years since I was in my 20s. My acne has progressively gotten worse over the years and my face is full of closed pores, blackheads and whiteheads. I am convinced that this foundation played a huge part, as I've used it DAILY for years. The worse my face got, the more coverage I would need and it turned into a vicious circle. It's a very heavy foundation that clogs the pores and only comes out with heavy duty make-up remover. I've just finished a course of Accutane and my skin is starting to look bad again. Also, Revlon tests their products on animals, so I have stopped buying their products. I'm done using this garbage.

A little about my skin: I have a VERY oily acne-prone skin. Ive suffered with acne for years and have very bad scarring to show for it. I'm currently using retin-A for my acne.I bought this because my last foundation was terrible. I was just using the Sephora brand foundation and when I ran out, decided it was time for a change.I've put this on with brushes and sponges, and it goes on well either way. I was sorely disappointed. News flash: IT DOES NOT LAST 24 HRS! I was oily in 2-3 hours and that's with powder! By the end of the day, I looked as I had in the morning before I'd put on makeup, except my face was an oily mess. It transferred terribly and everything I touched had brown fingerprints on it. Also, the coverage was not at all satisfactory. No matter how much I tried to build this up, my scars showed through! I would not recommend this to anyone with oily skin. It did nothing to control my oil, if not made it worse. But know I'm saying all of this using two bottles of this stuff completely. I gave it a chance because I honestly didn't know there was better out there. I'm now switching to Nars sheer glow and will never look back.

In trying out liquid drugstore foundations Revlon Colorstay is tied with L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte. I'm NC 30 and the color Golden Beige 300 is a spot on perfect match for me. Texture is fine. Not to heavy, not too light. Coverage is more medium than full even though Revlon claims it is full coverage. I need to add a bit more to my red areas on my cheeks and corners of my nose, but just a dab more really. I didn't really find it very matte though until I set it with powder, but once it's set especially with a good primer it looks smooth.As for it staying matte, well, no. After three hours I was an oil slick. Out came the blotting papers and touch up dusting of powder. As for staying powder with the exception of the corners of around my nose and mouth it stayed on for eight hours. I'd say I saw more wearing out around 12 hours, but that is more than acceptable for me. Haven't test the "24" staying power claim.Packaging sucks. Revlon really has this thing for glass bottles. What do they have against squeeze tubes? At least put a pump on top!I'll definitely buy this again. I think the L'Oreal is a bit better staying power in the heat and I like the fact that I don't need to set with powder after applying. Its slightly more yellow color is good in the summer when I do get a bit redder. In the winter though when I'm less red and greasy I'll reach for the Revlon for its cheaper price and perfect color match.

I bought this foundation after hearing it was a dupe for the Estee Lauder Double Wear. I love the double wear but it broke me out pretty bad. So I thought that I would give the Revlon Colorstay ago thinking that the formulation may be a tad different so it may not break me out like ELDW does. Unfortunately that wasn't the case :( after a week of wearing the foundation I started to break out. At first I put it down to hormones, and I so wanted it to be hormones because I love this foundation. In the end I had to face reality and admit that it was the foundation that was breaking me out. I picked the Revlon colorstay in 150 buff. I accidentally picked up the normal to dry skin formulation, I must have been so excited to get home and try this that I didn't pay attention the the different formulations. I have combination skin, so if I was paying more attention I would have picked up the combination/oily skin formulation. As it turns out the formulation I picked up was fine for me really, I didn't get oily through out the day, didn't need touch ups and it lasted till the late hours of the evening. I will only probably wear this now for special occasions just because its got a great coverage and last through out the day. Unfortunately it wont be my every day foundation just because it breaks me out, which is so sad :(

This is such a good medium to full coverage foundation with a nice natural finish. If you're looking for sheer to light coverage howver, don't buy this. I have used this foundations many times and have gone through tubes of it. My skin is on the dryer side and when it's more dry this doesn't look the best as it can cling to my dry areas HOWEVER when my skin is less dry to normal, this foundation looks great. The coverage is amazing and the finish isn't dewy but also isn't matte it's just nice and natural. If you have acne or need to cover up definitely get this foundation its coverage is soooo good (epmashis on so). If your skin is really dry though I wouldn't get this as it can make the dry areas more noticeable. When my skin isn't dry and I wear it it looks great though some lady in 7/11 even came up to me and complimented my makeup and how nice it looked and asked what I was wearing! I think this foundation in the normal to dry formula is best for normal skins definitely pick this up its one of the best drugstore foundations I've ever tried (I have test out a lot).

This is one of my favorite foundations. It is full coverage, and also looks great in photos. It does not have SPF which helps keep it matte. It's easiest applied with your fingers to be honest, it spreads it easier. I also always apply a blush over just because it is a very heavy full coverage that works very well. I have an awkward uneven complexion and this helps a LOT with keeping it from being an eye sore.
