I have to say that I really like this foundation. It feels very light but buildable. It stays on pretty well and covers well too. But i actually prefer the original colorstay a little bit more.

PROS:1.) This product is incredibly easy to blend and work with. It comes in a thick glass jar (more on that later), and all you have to do is barely dab your finger into the jar, and you've got enough to cover a section of your face (depending on how much coverage you like). It goes on smoothly and evenly, so unlike with the liquid formula, you don't need a sponge or foundation brush to blend it in. 2.) The jar packaging is really attractive, and it helps you to better conserve the product. I always had to pour the liquid Colorstay foundation into my hands because it didn't have a pump, and not only did it get my hands really dirty, but I felt like I wasted a lot of the product.3.) The coverage can be sheer or extremely full, depending on how much of the creme you use.4.) The staying power matches that of the original 24 hour Colorstay foundation.CONS:1.) Though I think the glass jar that it comes in is really attractive, it's not very hygienic. Make sure that you have clean fingers before you use this!2.) This is actually a pretty thick cream, not the foamy "whipped" products that we are used to seeing advertised. I have oily skin, and this can feel kind of heavy on my face at times. However, I haven't experienced any breakouts, so I guess I can't complain too much.3.) This isn't quite as matte of a finish as the Revlon Colorstay foundation for combination/oily skin, which I've been used to using for the past 2 years. I'm not a huge fan of dewy finishes because of my oily skin type, but at least it's natural looking and not an extreme shine.Overall, I do recommend this product if you are a fan of the original Colorstay. The product lasts longer and provides the same coverage and staying power (at least for me). It is a little more expensive and can be quite thick (which will be fine for the winter months, but I might have to switch back in the spring), so this might work best for normal and dry skin.

I really wanted to like this foundation, but I don't. First of all, I don't like the jar. It is unnecessarily large and heavy. But if I loved the way the foundation looked on me, I would be willing to get past that. However, I just don't like the way my skin looks or feels when I use this. The coverage is buildable, but not in a good way where it hides redness or imperfections but in a bad way--it gets all caked and accentuates dry patches, and the color gets kind of gray (I purchased 150 buff for reference). Whether I used a brush or my fingers to apply it didn't seem to matter--it just didn't look nice.

Im really liking this foundation. It feels lightweight on the skin with buildable coverage.Packaging is very good quality although i prefer the bottle type with a pump. I would purchase it again when im done with it :)

Really great buildable coverage, though if you put too much on, it may look a tad cakey. It evens out the redness on my face and covers scars/blemishes well, though not fully - still need concealer for darker spots. Its very lasting. It doesnt come off when I touch my face (blowing nose etc). Good oil and heat control, as I work in a place where I use a furnace every now and then. Set it with powder if you want it to last longer.Will deff repurchase.

I finally found my hg foundation. I have really dry skin and this applies flawlessly without leaving flaky patches on my face like every other foundation I tried. I didn't use any primer under this and it manage to still look the same after 8 hours of working. I originally bought this in "buff" because I'm buff in the original colorstay but it turned out quite ghostly looking on me so I went back to get "nude" instead which matched perfectly.

I really wanted this to work for me. But it turned out to be the worst foundation that I've ever used. =( I have dry skin with large pores and it emphasized every imperfection and made my skin look awful and rough. The coverage was full but it was just so cakey and heavy looking. The worst part was that it made my skin itch. :S I've never experienced that with any other foundation I've used. It itched so bad that I couldn't handle it and actually ran to the bathroom to wash it off. At $17 CAD it's expensive for a drugstore foundation, so I expected more. I had much, much better results with the liquid Colorstay. I'm really disappointed.

Hmmm......this foundation is really weird. The texture was gooey and a bit sticky. Going on it felt "normal" but after about 10 minutes my skin started to itch and so I guess I'm allergic to the silicone or bunch of crappy ingredients in here. My skin is really used to Lancome or Christian Dior so I guess I just can't really put up with drugstore anymore. It also made my pores look HUGE...my skin texture looked rough and cakey. I had to use two layers of this foundation to get the coverage I wanted. I have tried using this with my fingers, brush, sponge, and toes..nothing works. Foundation is horrible...

UPDATE 11/23/12:The coverage is actually medium coverage, but it's VERY buildable to full coverage. It's so buildable that I can even use it as a concealer--just pat pat pat and voila the blemish is gone. (:UPDATE 11/4/12:Natural Tan is darker and pinker than Warm Golden.ORIGINAL REVIEW:This foundation deserves much more than 5 lipsticks. The coverage, for one, is outstanding. It has full coverage (not completely opaque)--it covers up redness, acne, and most of my dark marks. I even use it on my under eyes.You would think with the coverage, it would look cakey, but it's not. It has a really nice flawless finish that begins semi-matte but settles into a satin finish. As the day progresses, my face's natural oils seep through, making my face a more luminous-to-dewy finish, which I really like. I don't get oily at all!I have a strong preference for cream foundations, so the creamy consistency is one of the reasons why I love it so much. It's not mousse-like at all like you would expect from its name "Whipped"--it's just like any other cream foundation: a little goes a long way!The lasting power is outstanding, too. In a typical autumn day (approx. 60 degrees F), with a primer underneath, it lasts all day long, from 6 AM to 9 PM. I haven't tried it under warmer temperatures, and I haven't worn it any longer than that, but I have worn it to a few of my dance classes (they're extremely high intensity classes, so I sweat) and it does last through the classes, but I get shiny too (the shine might be sweat or oil--I can't tell).The shade selection is great. Warm Golden is a bit too light but has the PERFECT undertones for me. I'm about NC35 in MAC and 153 in MUFE HD (bit too yellow for me)--medium skin tone with slight yellow undertones.The main complaint of reviewers here seems to be the packaging, but I actually like the packaging. It's a very chic, high-end-looking glass jar. It IS bulky and large and heavy, I'll agree with that.For just $13 you really can't go wrong. This stuff beats almost all the high-end stuff out of the water, and for only a quarter of the price!Would I repurchase? For sure!

This works surprisingly well on my combination nc15-nw20 43-year old skin. The finish is wonderful, somewhere between natural and satiny--and stays that way. Very easy to apply with a buffing brush, and the Buff shade blends perfectly. Holds up with no powder and I mean without even needing to blot for 8-10 hours on me. Covers minor pigmentation issues effectively. Great for an office day. I'm quite surprised, as the normal Colorstay just doesn't look all that great on me. I do wish this contained sunscreen, which is the only reason I'm not giving this a perfect score. I wear it over sunscreen, but I always feel like I'm diluting the protection my sunscreen gives me if my foundation has little or no sunscreen.
