Ok, ladies. I am the AUTHORITY on this stuff...been using it for 15 years! Its hands down, incredible. I have tested it against at least 10 other "long wearing stay put" department store brands including estee lauder, prescriptives, makeup for ever, lancome, chanel, the list goes on and on. Anytime I see claims that a makeup is "long wearing" and "Transfer resistant", I tried it. This stuff suprasses ALL other brands in longevity and it really STAYS!First of all, the colors are pretty great. Its medium/full coverage, and you can make it pretty sheer if you use a sponge. The secret is how you apply it! Anyone out there who gives this a negative review has not learned how to apply it, since it is very different from other foundations. You have to apply one section at a time, as it dries VERY quickly and WILL not blend after it dries. So all of you who are used to patting & dabbing forever to build coverage, this is NOT how you put this stuff on. If you could blend it forever, obviously it would not be very "stay put" would it?So...say you try to "touch up" after it dries, you have to be very careful and use a cosmetic sponge, or things will get weird. Once it's on there, its on there, and you better not add more, since this will litterally make it too full coverage. What I LOVE LOVE LOVE about it is that when it dries, you dust it with a little loose powder, and it feels weightless, dry, and absorbs oil. Your skin really feels like it can breathe! Great for oily skin!I am absolutely not kidding when I say I go swimming with this stuff, and it does not move. As long as you don't rub your face, and you just let the water roll off, it will NOT move. I am not exaggerating! It makes all of your other makeup stay too! Eyeshadows stay put, blush stays better, eyeliner stays better, because it anchors them down. Awesome stuff!!! I may never find anything better...

This is the first foundation that I have repurchased in years. It's the only drugstore foundation that provides the coverage I need without looking like a mask. My only complaint is the packaging. I wish Revlon would put this in a nice plastic pump.

This foundation stays on and doesn't rub off! Even after 8 hours in humid climate, it doesn't smear. One of the features I find most attractive in this foundation is that it settles on my skin really nicely.However, I think the packaging can be improved. The older versions of colorstay used to have pumps instead of the free-pour. I find that I waste more product with free-pour and it takes too much effort to get the stuff out. Plus, I think it might be better for a foundation if it had a pump cap to avoid oxidation. Perhaps Revlon should change it back to pumps!

This is an amazing foundation. If you have oily skin this is the best foundation out there. I've tried it all (usually high end, from Chanel to La Mer) and everything seemed ok at first but by the end of the hour I'd have oil all over my t-zone. Revlon Colorstay for oily skin is incredibly matte and it goes on very sheer or you can also build up the coverage (I usually do that for the night). For the first time in my life I've received compliments on my skin and no one ever notices that I'm wearing makeup (I'm a guy). I love this product and I highly recommend it to everyone with oily skin.

I will keep buying this until I find my real HG. This is good though. Coverage is nice without being opaque or cakey, good texture, good color match for me in Natural Beige. I would say it lasts between 8 - 10 hours on me. This is the best I've found so far.

I have used the old version and the new version for oily skin. This is a God sent for oily skin people who cannot get their foundation to stay on the whole day. Aside from the durability, I love the Medium Golden shade, which blends my skin perfectly. It is perfect for my very yellow undertone and creates this very classy shade. I have received so many compliments on my skin. I have checked my face 10 to 20 hours after application and my foundation has stayed put and fresh. Great product.

I've tried a lot of drugstore foundations, and none can compare to this! Revlon Colorstay Foundation left my skin absolutely flawless, and it lasted. The coverage was medium, but can definitely be upped to full if you apply more. Even if I applied a lot, I felt like my skin was still my skin, because it didn't look caked on. I get compliments on my skin all the time. I definitely recommend this to anyone. :)

Oh my goodness, I thought that Mac Studio fix was the best foundation, but....this one beats it by a long shot. I am an NC15/20 in the Studio Fix Powder Compact. I use the buff shade which is the equivalent in the Revlon Color Stay for oily/combination skin. I am not kidding.....i have acne prone, oily skin. I was out today in 32 degrees Celsius weather and was wearing it since 9:00 am in the morning....7pm, and it still looks great. All I need to do is touch up with a bit of loose powder and I'm good to go! I tried the Studio fix liquid foundation which is supposed to be the equivalent....but the Colorstay I found the color to be better suited for me and the coverage was way better and quite natural looking. Highly recommend it....I also have a lot of redness in my skin and this covers everything! Awesome product....this is my new Holy Grail foundation....Love this!

Love this foundation. May be my holy grail. Lasts at least 14 hours with little fading. I wear toast on my skin (MAC Nc42-43) and it's a great match. Coverage is good -- medium to full. Doesn't get greasy, but doesn't feel tight. Doesn't rub off on my boyfriend's shirt when I hug him. Great!

I am on the hunt for my HG.. I bought Revlon Colorstay due to the awesome reviews I see on here. However, I have got to be doing something wrong. I've tried applying with my fingers, brush, and sponge and I cannot get it to last all day to save my life! I have some acne scarring and I can't even get it to cover any of those either. Please help. :-(
