I've been a mineral makeup wearer for the past four years but I recently wanted to try something different so I decided to try this after reading all the raves on the makeup board. I'm so glad I did, I love this stuff. I was really skeptical of trying a liquid foundation again because I wasn't sure If I could get a right color match or it might look too cakey or even worse break me out, but Colorstay does none of this. I got the combo/oily formula, it doesn't oxidize, it stays fresh all day and doesn't make my face an oil slick in two hours, like Bare Escentuals did, and I found a great color match in Buff (1.2 fairly light in BE). The only negative thing I can think of is that it is a liquid and it's a little more time consuming to put on as opposed to just buffing in some BE and like the other reviewers mentioned you do have to move quick. I apply this with the MAC 187 brush.

It's been years since I tried any Revlon products, and now I remember why - their color choices are HORRIBLE. I bought this foundation for oily/combination skin in Buff and it looked grey on my skin. It also had no coverage, so I could see every imperfection through the grey veil. This is just awful stuff.

This is the only foundation ive been using for about 3 years.i have never tried anything that makes you look so perfect..but thats kind of a problem,it toooootally washes you out,so if you use it daily,you start to look kinda funny without it. it does stay on all day,i see this stuff being used in salons all the time.the only thing stopping me from giving it a 5 is that it clogs your pores.it doesnt break me out,but it gives me bad whiteheads & blackheads..yet im still addicted to this stuff lol.

I have to say this is probably the best product ever for making your face look so completely flawless and unbelievably smooth! It matched my skin SO well and really did stay put on my face for the whole day without needing touch ups. The downside is that this really does break you out. After reading the reviews of all the people who said it broke them out, I thought it was just a few people and wouldn't happen to me because makeup has never made me breakout before.you have to realize that this product***IT'S NOT NON-COMODOGENIC. ***IT IS NOT NON-PORE PLOGGING***NOT RECOMMENDED BY DERMATOLOGISTSThis product has nothing on the label to reasure you that it is safe to wear on your skin unlike all the other makeup products out there. It just says it is oil-free.This means that it WILL clog you pores which will lead obviously lead to break outs even if you don't normally break out!!!!!!!!!This product is only so good because it can clog your pores. It just isn't worth it.Try ALMAY clear complexion. The shades aren't as good, but it is a lot better for your skin.oh and the packaging is horrible.

I REALLY love this foundation! I use the darkest color, Mocha and even though it is darker than my skin tone it evens everything out very nicely. It creates a flawless, dewy, natural skin look. I put this on after my moisturizer and let it sit for a moment to dry and I'm good to go! It says on until you wash it off (unless you do something like sleep, something that puts a lot of friction then it will come off). A bonus, I have worn different foundations that create a gray cast on my face when I take pictures.. well this foundation helps me look picture perfect! The glass bottle lasts a while and the coverage is build able, it covers up my scars very well, looks like I don't have any! If you have been searching for a foundation I would recommend this one. Just be sure purchase the foundation at CVS since they will take it back if you don't like how, however I have feeling you wont be taking it back! :-)

I used to be a fan of the old formulation before they added the SoftFlex. I think it was better and lasted much longer. I like the way this initially looked when I put on. You do have to spread it quickly because it dries fast but doing one side of your face at a time and blending afterward tends to help. The colors are good. I wear the fairest in the winter and the second fairest in the summer. Unfortunately if you have any dryness or flakies, it's going to show. It can also get cakey looking if your not careful. I wore this for about two weeks and noticed that I was breaking out much more than usual, so I stopped. Skin cleared and started using again and then I started breaking out again. So no colorstay for me. Good makeup, those with acneic skin might want to think twice about using a long wearing makeup. It clogs pores. The #1 reason I do like this foundation is it smells like old paint. I mean I'm a artist and can honestly say it smells like enamel Paint. No wonder it breaks me out!

I've tried every expensive foundation in the world it seems, but I still prefer the Colorstay foundation to all of them. It's the only one I've found that allows me to wear a moisturizer underneath without making me oily or simply disappearing halfway through the day. I love that I'm no longer a slave to constant touch-ups and the Sand Beige color is a perfect match to my skin, not too pinky on my golden undertones. The one drawback is that it's in a standard glass foundation bottle instead of a plastic pump bottle, which I'd prefer for traveling and to keep it germ-free.

Definitely one of the best foundations I've ever used. I buy this in Sand Beige which is a perfect warm shade for fair to medium skin. I have a horrible time finding foundations that don't make my golden skin look too pink or grey or make me break out with cystic acne. I'm so glad I found this!!! I've used the normal to oily and normal to dry (SPF 15 with SoftFlex) formulations and both are wonderful. I prefer the normal to dry in the winter. This foundation goes on smooth, provides great moderate coverage, is very buildable and stays put all day! I don't get break-thru shine mid-day which I get with a lot of CG and Maybelline foundations. Even the normal to dry version doesn't make my face greasy. It's just a heavenly product. My only gripe is that I wish it came in a pump bottle. Other than that, this is definitely my HG foundation. I bought it on sale at Walgreens for only USD $7.99.

I've been wearing this makeup for quite some time and no matter how much I've try new products, I always end up coming back to Revoln Color stay. I notice the trick to putting on this foundation is with a wet/damp makeup sponge. It dries very quickly when putting it on with your fingures and/or makeup brush, which I've tried. The wet/damp sponge gives it a smooth glide and good coverage(I use the round sponges). When I need extra coverage I just dab the sponge on whatever area I want extra coverage and it does the job. I finish it with some loose powder. You name it I've got it with my face, acne prone, scars, oil, blemishes and this is the only makeup that seems to help with coverage and I don't break out from it. For my cleanser I use St Ives Apricot Scrub Blemish & Black head control with 2% salicylic Acid and this products really helps remove the makeup along helps with my occassional breakouts. I also use the Neutrogena Clear Pore Oil-eliminating Astringent after I wash my face and I notice I don't have much of any makeup left on my skin. I'm in the process on getting laser treatments for my skin, and tried different cleansers and makeups, thinking new skin new products, but after trying other products and just breaking out, for me, I've ended up back to my Revoln colorstay and Apricot Scrub.
