For all you ladies, including myself, who have complained about the packaging of this product, we are in LUCK!
They have airless, sanitary pump bottles for cosmetics for sale! Best of all, they are re-usable! Simply pour your Revlon Colorstay into the bottle, snap the cap, and voila! Pumpable foundation! =) I peeled the label off of my Revlon and stuck it onto my pump bottle to make it "look more professionl".
You can buy them in sets of (2bottles) for around $3.99 on ebay.

Would I buy this product again? Yes, again and again and again.
This is the only foundation I've discovered that gives me ideal coverage without breaking me out. My skin is extremely receptive to everything I put it on and usually tells me within a couple of days how it feels about it. 9 times out of 10, foundations break me out - even the oil free, acne clearing ones. This is the ONLY foundation I've found that keeps my skin looking fresh AND flawless.
And how lucky I am that it is an inexpensive drugstore find! Definitely recommended to gals with stubborn skin. See what happens.
This stuff is great! The only bad thing is there is no pump or you cant squeeze it out. But the coverage is AMAZING!!!!
Well, I just recently tried this on a whim. I have looked at Revlon foundation for years but never purchased until now- not sure why. I was previously using Rimmel MIneral foundation and really do like but wanted a change...went to the new Sephora minerals for a bit but wasn't happy with the color. So...tired this stuff out yesterday and really like! Great coverage, doesn't feel or look cakey and color is pretty good. Would like a tad more of a yellow tint but I can live with this...good stuff.
This is my second review, yes i'm a newbie in make up & in this site :p
First of all, sorry for my english, i don't use this language for my daily life. I'm a southeast asia girl, who has fair-medium skin tone with normal skin type.
I bought this a week ago,,,and i like it (but i don't love it much). This product has good coverage & it stays all day long. Smells like alcohol/chemical product at first, but after a few minutes after, it goes better! Besides that, it doesn't greasy at all :)
But in the counter where i bought this (i dunno in another places), they only have 2 colors (nude & ivory), so i picked up "nude" which is too white for me! :( I have to apply it lightly in order that it can look natural onto my skin).
I wont repurchase this because i wanna try another :p
Pro: The coverage is good without looking heavy. Just a little goes a long way. It makes my face look flawless and stays on all day long.
Con: The design of the bottle is not good. I don't want to risk spilling a lot of foundation when pouring it out. So I just dip a cotton swab in the bottle to get the foundation and that's about the amount I need each time. As a drugstore foundation, the price is a bit high. Besides, the colors are all too pinkish. It's hard to find one that's suitable for light to medium yellowish Asian skin.
I am so in love with this foundation!!!!!...I really like to thank Revlon cosmetics because they come up with this super duper very good product!.....usually it get so hot here in hawaii, so i have to look for a make-up that last long and won't break me out, so i began my research and decided to try this.....OHH GOOD GRACIUOS!...GOOD THING I DID!!!...it is really long-lasting when set with a good loose powder like my favorite NYC loose translucent powder.....ahhh....this is my very first liquid foundation that i tried and i must say im not gonna use anything else!....im hooked!!!!
Firstly, this product should have a pump! But the actual foundation is amazing!
I have combination skin so i get an oily t zone and then random dry patches and my previous foundation (l'oreal one) ALWAYS faded off in the oily places and clung to the dry places! defo not a good look especially as it happened like an hour after applying. This one stays put for the WHOLE day and as long as you put the right amount on stops your face looking shiny. I say that because occasionally i pour a little too much out and then my face gets a bit shiny before it dries. But thats a flaw with the packaging not the product. At the end of the day i remove it with a makeup wipe and then have to wash my face as it stays on so well that i can see when i wash it has not all come off. no breakouts although i am not prone to them. feel like i can go out without bringing the bottle with me cos its not gonna budge! also spf is a bonus imo. i use a mac 130 to kind of stipple it in. love it :) however i have decided i wont be taking it with me on holiday when i go as it is medium/heavy coverage and so i think im gonna try find a good tinted moisturiser. x x
Love love love love. Now my HG.
Great foundation. I love the colour selection - I'm asian, MAC NC15/20 and I got this in Buff and Sand Beige, both in Combination/Oily, and it's perfect.
Amazing variable coverage. It's actually not that heavy if you apply it lightly with a normal foundation brush, while stippling with a brush like MAC 187 gives you a full coverage while still not being cakey.
I actually don't mind the glass bottle. I just press the opening against the back of my hand and flip it upside for a second, and flip back and I have the perfect amount of foundation in a little circle on the back of my hand. I don't mind the smell either.
With all of my previous foundations (Clinique Clarifying Makeup and Clarins Truly Matte), I seemed to get shiny within 2 hours of applying foundation and powder in the morning, and I needed to powder every 2 hours throughout the day. However, with Revlon Colourstay, I can powder way less - once every 5 hours or so. It controls oil really well - I still do get oily, but instead off looking shiny and greasy, my skin looks natural and glowy. The foundation absorbs and disperses oil very well. It stays on for a really long time. At the end of a long day, my skin still looks beautiful.
It hasn't broken me out at all, which is great.
One downside is that it does look white-ish in flash photos, but in person or in non-flash photography, it looks flawless.
Really does what it says and stays put on my skin. The packaging isn't great as there is no pump, and the smell isn't too bad, just smells like peroxide, or something clean. Color matching was a little tough, but overall realllly like it.
