This is an outstanding product!! I find this foundation to be extremely natural looking, easy to blend, and very long wearing. Since I have dry/normal skin i always moisturize before applying makeup to my face and this does not emphasize my dry areas (that being said it is summer and it is much more humid than any other season of the year). There is just a hint of fragrance in this foundation, its rather unnoticeable really which i consider a pro. Blending this product into the skin is a breeze whether its with my elf studio blush brush or with my fingers. It covers fairly well, it evens out my complexion and hides most redness. The consistency is thick and creamy yet i don't feel like i have anything on my face when i wear this foundation. Lastly, this foundation (at least for me) doesn't require powder! i mean, if you can get away with less products on your face the better for your skin and wallet!! Revlon has truly outdone itself!
After being so-so on the Colourstay liquid due to the masked-feeling, I admit to having some doubts while buying this product. It is a great product, but it seemed to fill in the pores surrounding my nose. This never happened with Colourstay Liquid. (I have normal skin). I would love this product if I only used it on my outer cheeks and T-zone! I paired it with my Revlon Photoready Primer, and I have also paired it with just my Olay Age-defying Anti-Wrinkle day cream serum. This happened both times using totally different products. I'm really disappointed this didn't work for me, Revlon is the only colour that's light enough to blend to my very-pale tone. Also, I'm just going to ignore the packaging, because we all know how poor it is... (read various comments below me if you're not yet aware). Overall, I would recommend that you give this a shot if you have a coupon or anything. I think I got this at about $7 at Target using a Revlon coupon. I'm going to try it a couple more times through out the next week or so, and see if my results improve. Stay beauitful (:
I love this foundation! It is amaze! Covers beautifully, matched my skintone perfectly and makes you look radiant.It feels super light and luxurious Unfortunately i havent found a brush to apply it with, it does have blending issues so i use my fingers hich seems to work. I had to take off a lippie because it did not last 9hrs on my oily skin, if you are normal.combo skin it would be perfect....Excellent product will definetly purchase again.
THIS is everything I hoped Urban Decay's Naked Skin would be! But unfortunately that one was a mess. This foundation, however, is great! It goes on smoothly, covers my redness (a big deal for me), and the color actually matches my skin, which is kind of amazing (I got Sand Beige). I'll update once I put it through a full day at work, but so far, yay!
UPDATE 8/9/12: I have been using this for a week now and I still love it. We've been experiencing a heat wave here in SoCal and yesterday I not only went to work, but cleaned my apartment, did dishes by hand (no dishwasher), did 3 loads of laundry, and ran to Target to pick up a few odds and ends. Ph, and did I mention my apartment doesn't have air conditioning? So I was HOT. By the end of the night, my face still looked great though. A little bit had slid off from my chin and nose (I wear glasses so my nose is usually a waste land by the end of the day) but not too much, actually. It didn't look ridiculous, in fact I am probably the only one who noticed, because I was keeping tabs on the staying power.
However, I realized after a few days that Sand Beige oxidized on me a bit because I saw orange streakies on my neck - oh no! So I returned it and got the next shade down, Buff, which I like a lot better. It might be a *tad* too light right now, but I try to avoid giving my face too much sun so I'm sure it'll be fine for the rest of the year. I noticed some reviewers said it looked grey, and that's true when it's first applied and sitting on your face like "whoa! that isn't me at all, that's a mask!" but it's kind of like a BB cream in that it looks grey at first, then over a few minutes it blends into the skin and becomes the right color, matching pretty well.
Update 9/10/12: After about half the pot, this stuff has started to separate on my face - not pretty. I've revised my rating to reflect 2 stars from 5 because this is unacceptable.
This foundation is absolutely amazing!! I have very oily skin and nothing stays on my face....not even the Colorstay for oily/combo skin. This one not only stays on all day but stays looking fresh and flawless and I only had blot my face or powder once during the day.....NOT 10 times like before. I also used to use L'oreal's Infailable foundation and this one is by far the very best out there for a drugstore brand. Good price too, you won't be let down, if you are looking for a foundation to make your face look like you have perfect skin!! I am a tanned asian, and Natural Tan is a perfect shade for me!!
Pros: Goes on very smoothly, a tiny bit goes a long way, the color blends perfectly, it covers well, it lasts very long, it give my skin a beautiful glowyness.
Cons: Not many! The only thing I can think of if that my nose gets a little shiney after a few hours, but I have oily skin and that happens with any make-up.
This foundation was honestly a LIFE SAVER! In a desperate attempt to find a foundation that would conceal my horrific skin (my skin hates me right now haha) before taking professional photographs for my senior yearbook I came across this foundation and WOW. Pretty amazing stuff. The pros: crazy lasting power, like the names states 24 hours (which i have not tested because I don't wear makeup for that long) but still at least a good 7-8 hours which is an average day for me. To find that this foundation lasts through the heat and my naturally oily skin is incredible. another plus is its amazing coverage and blend ability. You have enough time to apply the foundation without it drying too quickly. Covered my acne scars, blemishes, uneven skin tone, and redness really well. However the texture is kind of weird. Its not a mousse texture but its not necessarily a "whipped" feeling either. Cons: the price for this foundation was ridiculous. I paid $15.56 at cvs :( another con is that the packaging is extremely bulky and heavy, not ideal for traveling at all. The thick glass container also makes it nearly impossible to find the color as they all look the same through the glass. Another con is the shade range, not a lot of shades for darker skinned girls. I got the third darkest which was "warm golden" and I'm an NC 30 at MAC 0.o so yeah..they could definitely add some more darker shades. Other than that, its pretty much an all around great foundation :)
I have heard so much about this product being good for oily/combo skin because it gives a nice matte appearance and controls oil throughout the day. That might make you think, "Oh great, yet another foundation for people with oily skin", and that it probably wouldn't work for those with dry skin...think again!
I have dry to very dry skin, and this works wonderfully for me! I don't think I've ever enjoyed having a semi-matte finish on my face until now. I think this works so well with my dry skin because of the texture of the foundation--it goes on so smoothly that it doesn't irritate the dry patches on my face. This is the ONLY foundation I've tried that I don't have to precariously apply in sections to avoid disturbing the flaky patches on my face (I've tried many high-end foundations that claim to be "hydrating"). With this, I can just dot it all over and actually buff it in! Those of you with dry skin will know what a big deal that is... Don't get me wrong, proper skin care is still super important for those with dry skin. You can't expect to just slap this on without moisturizing and not get flaky!
I don't know what it is, but this foundation just seems perfect for all skin types. It's not hydrating like a moisturizer, but applies so smoothly like one on the face. The finish is so natural, I can't stop raving about it. And I love the medium coverage a light layer provides. When I am applying it, I feel as if I am "erasing" the redness and discoloration on my face, as opposed to covering it up! The end result is natural, fresh looking skin! I would describe it as having the natural finish of a tinted moisturizer without sacrificing coverage!!
Overall, I love this product, and it is the foundation I reach for most often.. pushing my Dior aside! I WILL repurchase this, with the hopes that it is never discontinued!
I friggn' love this foundation!!! When applied over my Baby Aveeno/ Oil of Olay Sensitive skin moisturizer & primer with my flat top powder brush it creates a flawless appearance. No visible poors!!!! The guys at my barber school can't help but compliment my "skin tone" when I walk into class. Lol! Definitely the HG of ALL drugstore foundations!!
After Reading Many Reviews And Seeing Many YouTube MakeUp Guru's Give Great And Honest Reviews On This New Revlon Whipped Foundation. It's Texture Is Unlike Any I've Ever Tried In A Good Way It's Not Whipped LIke LOreal's Magic Souffle Mouse Foundation. It's More Like Soft Mud But In A Good Way It Applies Flawlessly Whether It Be Your Fingers Or Brush, I Haven't Applied With My Beauty Blender Or Sponge. I've Noticed The Best Application I Get Is Warming Up My Hands And Dotting My Face With Small Applications (A Little Goes A VERY Long Away) Then Smoothing It In Circular Motions Working From Mid Section of My Face To The Outer Parts, Then If Needed Lightly Buffing The Foundation With A Brush
On The Major Note Of The Packaging...Yes Its A Little Hard To Check For Shades Which Is Disappointing But Thankfully Stores Like CVS Have A Return Policy On Makeup To Easily Exchange FOr The Right Shade
As For Shade Selection The Color Matching IS On Point I Would Like To Say For Me Personally I'm Quite Happy With My Shade 370 Golden Tan
Hope This Helps!
