I absolutely love this foundation! I recently found a brand new jar with my perfect shade for 3 dollars in a discount section for only $3 . Why it was discounted was beyond me because the date is perfectly fine and none of the seals had been broken. I use this foundation in conjunction with the Neutrogena shine control primer and they keep me shine free for 5 hours so far which has never happened. The texture really is that of whipped cream which is a lovely feeling. It is quite thick but did not feel so on my face. Over all I'm in love with this foundation so far such. I know the price is more than 3 but would gladly re purchase at full price.

The only full coverage foundation I have ever liked, and let me start by saying it is incredible. I am probably going to remain a BB and TM advocate forever, so the only reason I tried this was because I saw Nicole G on YouTube rave about it. Nicole and I are not foundation compatible, but her video was very convincing and I strangely found myself purchasing this. I'm glad I did! The packaging reminds me a lot of Chanel, and at first impression the whipped formula seems very alien and thick (even to fullcoverage lovers, from what I hear and read), but it goes on like a dream. This foundation is very blendable and the finish is satin and exquisite. I can sheer it out to make it look surprisingly a lot like my own skin, but the coverage remains. No matter how much I apply, it lasts all day and blends in very very well. It is advertised as being 24h wear, and this is true. I have fallen asleep wearing this and it was still there in the morning! I am complimented on my skin and not my makeup all the time while wearing this. Lastly, the best thing about this foundation is that it has an uncanny tendency to look better and better throughout the day. Don't ask me how, but it does. I now own both a summer and a winter shade and will repurchase.

I have mixed feelings about this foundation. All my friends seems to love it, so I decided to try it as well. I'm more a high end type of girl, especially with foundations. At the moment this is the only foundation from the drugstore that I own. In the past I tried the liquid Colorstay foundation and I hated it so much! Pros:- Photographs well (no SPF in it)- Medium coverage (if you have acne scars you will need a concealer)- PriceCons: - Clogged my pores (I have acne prone skin)- Even when I apply a primer before it my pores are still pretty visible if not bigger, other foundations that I use don't cause that.- Heavy feeling on the skinSo, overall, I don't think I'll buy it again.. I just feel that I'm wearing a mask when I apply it, the foundation it's noticeable on the skin. I think the Colorstay line isn't for me :/

My favorite. Great coverage, no concealer needed. Top with finishing powder for all day flawless finish!

Let me tell you a story of how I came about this foundation. A couple weeks ago we were running late to a birthday party for my niece, so I decided to do my eyes at home and my face makeup in the car. I packed up my MAC foundation, my Smashbox concealer, my good Korean BB cream, a couple brushes I loved, and headed out to the car. We went to the party, everything was fine. Then I get a job interview scheduled, working at a cosmetics counter at Macy's. I'm super excited and I'm going through all of the things I need to do to get ready and I remember my makeup bag. I CANNOT FIND IT. All of my makeup, gone. We checked the car. We checked our house. Everywhere. Can't find it. All of my good makeup. Gone. My good makeup, made for my fairest of fair skin, gone. I can't replace it all. Not on my current budget. So... I decide to venture into foreign drugstore foundation land. I gave up drugstore foundations several years ago when I couldn't find a shade light enough for my skin. The lightest shade was always a bit dark and always turned orange. I was turned onto Bare Minerals and gave up the drugstore stuff. So here I was, back again, having hope, but only a little. I looked for a long time at everything there was. I had read online that a lot of fair skinned women liked Revlon Colorstay. I wasn't particularly interested in a liquid makeup. Then I saw the whipped cream. The 001 Ivory color looked light enough. What do I have to lose?I am so surprised at how nice this foundation is. It covered scars that my MAC didn't even cover. It was easy to apply with my foundation brush. Didn't turn orange and matched my skin well. All this for $15! I also purchased the concealer and it worked just as well. I'm very, very happy! Edit: I forgot to mention that I did not set it with the Colorstay powder. I am not a fan of powder in a compact. I instead used a light dusting of e.l.f. HD powder and it was perfect.

Great foundation. Even greated ontop of Napoleon perdis stick foundation for a full coverage. Which I need to cover dark freckles. The price could be cheaper I bought it on special at $20AUD which was a good offer, but I don't think I'd like to pay $30+AUD for it again. But I really need to buy another stock soon so I'll have to. The packaging is bulky and would be better in a tube dispense like the tester.

I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION SO MUCH! The texture isn't 'mousse-like' but it's actually quite creamy, which works wonders for my normal/combination skin. I prefer light-medium coverage foundations and this one is just perfect! Lasts all day long on me even after I sweat and the oil control in this is waay better compared to the original liquid revlon colostay foundation imo. The packaging can make getting the product out quite messy but I deal with it. I am so repurchasing this when I run out! My new HG foundation! I wouldn't recommend this for dry-skinned girls though, because the formula would enhance and dry patches and etc. :)

I am about 2/3 through my second jar of Colorstay Whipped in the shade 220 Nude. This is a nice, full coverage cream foundation that works great for oily/combination skin :) It doesn't look cakey or fake.It has a true matte finish and does help control oil to an extent. I still use a powder and blot throughout the day but those with less oily skin probably won't have to. This foundation has great staying power; I would especially recommend it if you live in a hot climate. The price is not bad, I paid 10.99 USD at Walgreens.I took one lippie off for the atrocious packaging! It is bulky, unhygienic, terrible for traveling, and its not very user friendly unless you are using a spatula or a traditional foundation brush.Although this is a very good foundation, I don't think I would repurchase it again because I feel like there are better options out there for drugstore foundations that may work better without the hassle of bad packaging.

My new HG foundation. I used Revlon colorstay (the liquid version) before and that was my HG until I realized that It made me look like I was wearing a mask of makeup. So, I went on a search for a long time to find a new HG foundation at the drugstore and I went through just about every company, repurchasing some but not all and eventually moving on to the next one, before my new school year started I really wanted to find a nice foundation that stays on for a long time without transferring, without me re applying looking flawless and trapping my oil but NOT looking like im wearing a lot of makeup or giving me the mask-like effect the other one did. when I tried this foundation I was seriously WOWED to the max. it really is amazing, I think the bad reviews are from the people who didn't really work with it. I think this foundation works really amazingly with certain brushes or techniques. I use the real techniques brushes from walmart. the buffing brush really really does the trick small fast circular motions make this foundation blend so beautifully with your skin.Take it from me I literally have tried almost every single foundation in the drugstore market this one is the best one out of ALL of them. I give it a 10/10 and I have never rated one so high. I have combo oily skin but when its hot my skin gets pretty oily. Today it was 94 degrees and I go to a highschool with about 1800 kids and there is no air conditioning anywhere in the building so you can just imagine how hot it is. I think out of my 4 years of going to my school it may have been the hottest its been and I also washed and waxed my car in that heat and let me tell you it looks almost exactly how it did when I first applied it and I only use 1 department store product that is fairly cheap. I am truly amazed by this foundation and I do believe it is the best out of the entire drugstore foundations today.Products I use for face:Aveeno positively radiant mostrizer Monistat chafing gel for primer (also amazing)Revlon colorstay whipped (with the real techniques buffing brush in small, fast circular motions)mac mineralize skinfinish natural (with the real techniques powder brush)TRY IT YOU WONT REGRET IT

I'm used to buying expensive foundations but this was pretty expensive for a drugstore foundation and I didn't like it. it made me break out and it oxidized badly. I still got oily and I felt it on my face. it felt thick and it clogged my pores. when I got oily it just melted and sat on my face looking like a thick oily mess. will never repurchase again.
