I got this in sand beige and I quite like it! I was looking for a foundation that could look natural and this definitely works!! The packaging could be better..maybe with a pump! It smells a bit like paint...but the pros definitely outweigh the cons! Lasts all day! :) contact me if you have any questions
Personally I love this foundation. I've always gone back to it some point or another. It never fails me.Full coverage, and it keeps my oily skin at bay so I'm not having to blot as much throughout the day. It doesn't clog my pores and it lasts all day & all night, through school, dance practice, football half-time performances, and a busy day. Although the price is a little bit more than I would like to spend, it is worth it. I just wish it had a pump instead of a pour out bottle. continued >>
How would I describe Revlon ColorStay in one word... Amazing ♥
I brought the oily/combination foundation 6 years ago and never looked back. Doesnt bring you out in spots or make your skin oily and has a longlife wear up 24 hours. However, one downfall.. I stopped using it for a week due a holiday and my skin was terrible from not using it. Definitely a must buy! continued >>
Finally was able to try this foundation and I love it! I was currently trying to find something I like more than MUFE mat velvet +. I was hesitant to spend so much money on that, then I found this and it's amazing! Yes, it does have a smell but once I put it on I don't notice it at all. Also I don't mind that there is no pump on the bottle. It would be nice but it's not going to stop me from buying this again. I currently use it with a smashbox primer and skindinavia setting spray and it stays pretty good throughout the day.
Overall Revlon color stay is a good foundation, I have really oily skin and its hard for me to blot during the day because I am so busy. So this is nice to have a foundation that takes care of oil. I wouldn't say my face is now completely oil free, but it definitely did help. I got this is in nude, which actually was too light for my skin. It does last quite a while, obviously it soaks in a bit and wont look exactly the same as you did when you first put it on, but the staying power is a lot better than most foundations. Price is not bad either.
I've been using this product quite sometime ago and I'll be definitely continue using it unless I could find something better.
I have combination/oily skin which this product just nice for me. After applying it, though you still find a bit greasy after long hours especially during hot days... however it's so much manageble than other products which I used before and the price is really affordable!
Recently, I found my secret blend where I mix it with Nymph Aura Volumer from Etude House and it does give me a glowy and radiant look. Both works perfectly on me! Those who have the same skin type as mine should consider give it a try!
I've been using this for about a week, no breakouts that I've noticed. Sand Beige is a great match for my NC25 skin, and it doesn't oxidize. I haven't noticed the heaviness that other commenters have mentioned, but that may be because I apply it with my fingers in a modest layer. I don't expect full coverage from this (or any) foundation and prefer to go over the spots that need it with Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and my beloved E.L.F. concealer brush.
It's not a miracle as far as controlling the oilies, but right now I'm using a retinoid (Atralin) that I feel is causing my skin to be unnaturally oily. It still does a much better job than my previous foundation, Bourjois Healthy Mix.
I really think this foundation looks better and better as the day goes on. My only issue with it is the crappy packaging. This needs a pump so badly.
Seeing as how I have only ever used department store foundations (MUFE and Clinique) since I started wearing them in late high school/early college, I cannot say enough good things about this incredible drugstore foundation!
I have melasma, acne dark marks, and incredibly oily skin. After hearing about this all over YouTube, I gave it a shot when my MUFE Mat Velvet ran out and I was tired of spending $40 on something that only seemed to slightly mask my dark marks.
OH MY GOSH! Why didn't get ride of my MUFE sooner?! Colorstay is a true full coverage foundation and it has major major staying power! It literally lasts all day even after being blotted with paper and smudged here and there when I have an itch or wipe my mouth with a napkin during lunch. It doesn't make my face oily (MUFE always did even though it was oil free) and it doesn't make me break out either.
True it does have a strong scent, but I dont' care at all because of how great it makes my skin look and how good it makes me feel! It has become my shield and I will go nowhere without it! I use a foundation brush and only apply it as I go, so I don't have an issue with it drying on my skin before I can blend it out. I want to try it with a Beauty Blender next.
Great coverage; Pretty dewy finish (only with lotion + sunscreen underneath - otherwise, very matte!); Stays on all day; Color matches perfectly!!
I love this foundation! I've tried tons of high end and drugstore products, but I've always had trouble with oiliness and color matching. Usually the lightest color of a foundation will be a noticeable shade or two darker, but this one seems to really brighten my face when I put it on. And oddly, the revlon colorstay foundation but for normal/dry skin is a touch darker than for oily/combination - so if color matching is an issue for you, go for the oily/combination one!
The foundation has a very thick and smooth consistency. I tend to shake it, then put my finger over the top and turn it upside down quickly to dispense a small amount onto my fingertip. Blends well if you do one section at a time. I find that buffing it in gives it a nice airbrush look.
I usually am always on a search for a better foundation, but I actually just repurchased this one the other day. I'm so in love with it :) And the new 24-hour formula really does last much longer than the older 16-hour formula! Great deal!
I really like this foundation! It feels good on my skin and doesn't break me out (I'm a teen with acne so that's saying a lot)! By far the best foundation I've ever used! I do have to use a setting powder to create a matt finish, because it does give some shine. I don't have to use a lot though which is good. I wish there was a pump, because I have to literally hold the foundation upside down so it will come out, and now I have to shake it, because I'm running out. I will probably repurchase this, but it will be a BIG plus if they choose a pump next time!
Overall: Great foundation, but bad packaging
