I purchased 24hrs 250 Medium Beige. This product easy to use and covers light-medium coverage NOT full coverage. Does not last 24 hours.
Cons-Nasty and strong odor, the foundation says "Medium Beige" but comes out waaay lighter, made my face oily after a couple of hours
Pros-Fairly cheap $8-$12 bucks, made my face look nice and matte, you dont run out of the product fast it lasts a long time in the container
Dont purchase if youre looking for full coverage, Purchase if you like light and silky foundations
im in love with this foundation, i love this as much as i love my revlon colorstay liquid foundation, im a nc35 in mac cosmetics and i use the color 330 true beige for this foundation, unfortunately , i bought this foundation when i was in USA in september 2012 and in singapore where i live, they only have 320 warm golden which is a little too light for me and 340 is way too dark, but this foundation gives me full coverage which is what i love, covers up my acne scars, lasts all day on my skin, does not break me out and i don't find myself having to blot during the day which is a bonus. i don't like this as much as my revlon colorstay just because the jar takes up so much space in my makeup collection, and i hate having to dip my finger into the jar to get the foundation. overall i will repurchase this product, revlon always makes the best foundations :)
I got this on sale for $17 [RRP $40 here in Australia] which is still rather expensive, but a much better price than the original. I would not pay full price for this foundation as I don't think it's THAT good.
However, it's a very nice foundation. It's light and easily blendable. I'm in the shade Nude, and it's a very good match to my skintone. I use a buffing brush to apply this, and it's very easy to apply. It is slightly streaky though, but that's only visible close up.
I don't like the packaging though. The amount of product in the jar is about half as much as the size of the jar is. It's heavy and bulky and makes it inconvenient to take around. As nice as it looks, it's not practical packaging.
Good foundation, would not rush to repurchase though. Especially at the regular price.
First off I just want to say do not be fooled by the packaging! I purchased this at Ulta and the girl helped me find a shade right for me because I couldn't remember what my shade was. She based it off of the color we saw on the outside of the jar and that was very misleading! It looks much lighter on the outside. I believe this foundation is great; just not for my oily skin. I believe this would be great for someone with drier skin. I'm used to my revlon colorstay which is specifically for my skin. It goes on great, I just felt I was oilier by the end of the day. The only reason I wouldn't buy again is only because I don't think it's suitable for my skin type.
Great foundation,nice and creamy. Stays on. Dont care for the heavy glass jar though.
After all the hype around this product, I decided to purchase this on a trip I took to Buffalo as we hadn't received it in Canada yet. The coverage is medium-full coverage. I'm a medium skin tone with yellow undertones, I bought Warm Golden, it matches pretty closely and I like the finish, but I feel that in pictures this foundation leaves a white cast...even without setting it with powder...I'm not sure if that's because I should buy a shade darker or if it's just the foundation. I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem with this foundation? You get a lot of product and it will last you a long time, but if you have warm undertones, it will be difficult to find your right colour. I would not repurchase this again.
Got this product out of curiosity and all the hype... I don't normally wear cream, liquid, tinted typed of foundations, just mineral powder foundations but I'm sure like most girls, we like to try new products! I waited for a good sale until making my purchase and got if for 40% off at my local Kmart. I tried it twice and liked the coverage but only pulled it out for special occasions. Recently, with the holidays and lots of photography, I decided to pull it out again. I may have purchased the wrong color because it kind of looked a little grayish but I lightly set it with powder foundation so it balanced out. The finished was nice and I do have to agree with everyone else that YES, IT DOES LOOK BETTER TOWARD THE END OF THE DAY! So weird how that works, but I noticed that when I was getting ready to take my makeup off, it was looking really good, almost airbrushed! With that I used it a total of three days in a row until I started noticing IT WAS BREAKING ME OUT! I don't think I've ever broken out from a product before so it was kind of hard to believe. I've stopped the Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup and my breakouts are slowly going away but not completely. I am bummed because it gave a natural finish, medium coverage, and just gave me a flawless look but in the end it just wasn't meant to be.
I have EXTREMELY sensitive and combo/oily skin. I've had to use LORAC foundation for the past year and was never happy with it. After watching the YouTube videos and reading reviews, I gave it a chance using my coupon at Ulta.
Personally I think $15 for a drugstore product is ridiculous but since its Ulta and I had a coupon and they take exchanges, I took the plunge.
SO HAPPY I DID. Best foundation ever. It actually looks better as the day goes on! Never had THAT happen. Only blot once and it's amazing. Blends great, wears well, lightweight, didn't break me out. Love it. Got NUDE and SAND BEIGE to blend the colors for my skin.
I even got my mom convinced this stuff was the best. She used coupons and reward bucks at CVS to buy it and only pay $1.83!!!! Super awesome product, ESPECIALLY with coupons!
-Love the coverage of this foundation, very buildable and works well with a matte powder layer on top too!
-Although not necessarily a full 24 hours, the staying power it has is really extensive, which I like.
-My skin still looks decent over a long period of time, and that's saying a lot for someone who has an oily T-Zone. It doesn't have a completely matte finish but my skin looks refreshing, youthful, and only slightly dewy over a period of 8-10 hours.
-The creme itself is kind of cool, after you take a little product out of the pot, the indents from where you took product settle back into a smooth layer after a few minutes.
-Price is expensive, at least for my college student finances. I mean I suppose it's worth it (this is the best "liquid" foundation I've tried for my skin) but I feel as if you're not getting enough product for the price.
- The glass jar thing is unnecessary. It looks pretty, but I think functionality should be considered here.
- I've heard that for warmer skin tones, the colors don't always match up well. Perhaps they should make their shade selection more extensive in the future.
Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation comes in a large glass container. It looks very pretty, kind of like Chanel, but is excessive and unnecessary.
I would call this a medium - full coverage foundation. It is a thick cream that you can build easily from medium to a fuller coverage. This really isn't a heavy foundation, but you can feel it on your face. It feels sort of silicone-y... Nothing terrible, it is just different.
This foundation has a very natural finish. Not too matte, not dewy. It just looks like skin. That is probably my favorite part of this foundation. Of course, setting it with a powder will alter the finish-- a little more matte, but still very nice.
This foundation claims to last 24 hours. I have no need for foundation to sit on my face for any amount of time nearing 24 hours. This foundation started wearing down on my T-zone after 8 hours, which is still pretty good without a primer. I've found that a primer will nix this problem in the bud.
I don't have a lot of cons, but I have a few things that ought to be noted.
First, this is not the cheapest of drugstore foundations. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart for $10.94, which is as cheap as you can get it unless there is a sale going on. I really like this foundation, so I don't mind. Another thing is application. When I first purchased this I was a little stumped as to how to apply it. I didn't want to use my fingers (like the instructions suggest) just because I find it a little unhygienic. After some trial and error, I found that I get the best results using a stippling brush or a dense kabuki-style brush.
ALL IN ALL:
I really enjoy this foundation. It looks great and the texture is...interesting. Give it a try!
