Love this foundation, this is my new favorite foundation and I have been using it NON STOP on days I wear makeup for at least two weeks. I have dry/combo skin and it looks great! I am in the color Warm Golden and I'm so happy I found a perfect match for my skin (it's sooo hard to find your shade, the glass jar mutes out the color on all of them!) I apply with my fingers, just wash your hands before and you should be good. It goes on so smooth and beautifully. You have plenty of time to blend. I am bringing this foundation to me on my trip to vegas because it holds well in warm weather and lasts very long!
I bought this in Sand Biege and it looked like it was made for my skin! The color is a perfect match. I like how it goes on; it's light and feels nice on my skin. However, it has little staying power. As soon as I blew my nose, the makeup was gone. I'm not one to re-apply throughout the day so this won't work for me...I'm returning it today!
I finally found something that matched my odd skin tone! I'm Warm Gold. This looks flawless on (in the beginning at least), and I've worn this without a primer, and it still doesn't get oily! (note I have barely oily skin to begin with) My only complaint is that it doesn't cover up my acne as much as I'd like and it's a little pricey for drug store, and even though it holds up oil well, it tends to look cakey by the end of the day.
I have combo\sensitive skin and this foundation works great for me. I have the 2nd lightest shade (buff) which is perfect for my fair yellow toned skin. This foundation is a thick whipped consistancy and it takes very little product for my entire face. I find that placing small dots around my face, then blending with a flexible flat top brush works best for me as I do not like using my hands. It is a medium coverage foundation that covers redness and acne marks very well while feeling quite light almost the same feeling as after putting on a primer. It blends beautifullly with ease and doesn't set into pores or fine lines. I have worn this with\without a setting powder and it actually lasts both ways which is impressive. I tend to set it lightly with a translucent powder most days. I live in an area that is rather humid, do not blot or mess with my makeup throughout the day, have an oily t-zone and I've had 0 issues with my face melting off and absolutely no
transfer: again impressive! This has quickly become my go to foundation. I am unsure if this will work for me in the winter as my skin gets pretty dry and I have to moisturize really well before using it now but this is an essential for summer.
[For reference: I am an NC30-NC 35 in MAC and I use Warm Golden 320 in Revlon ColorStay Whipped]
I've always failed when it came to finding the perfect foundation because my oily skin would just completely wreak it mid day. It would end up either looking really cakey or just completely disintegrated into thin air. Lately, I've only relied on BB creams; even though it was never enough coverage for my hyper-pigmented skin. It was about a month ago that I stumbled on this product at CVS, but never gave it a chance until I saw a crop of reviews flooding blogs and youtube. I just always assumed creme makeup meant an oil spill on my already greasy face, so I just skimmed by it. I am so damn glad I decided to give this a chance after obsessive research! This is a freaking miracle in a jar. I've only been using this for a week and have not broken out from it, in fact I think the break outs I had were healed by it because of the salicylic acid it contains. The feel of this is like dense whipped velvet and I get the best coverage (not to mention fuss free) using just my fingers. I sometimes use primer and loose powder to set this, but it really is fine all by itself and that's coming from the largest oil producer the world has ever seen. With traditional foundations and BB creams, I usually have to blot by 2PM. With Revlon's creme foundation, I never have to worry about it slipping and sliding. I am so conditioned to think I would need a touch-up that my routine 2PM checkup leaves me in awe. I guess I just have to get used to looking like I have flawless skin, this includes my pores looking smaller as well! No more blotting for me. As for the packaging; it makes perfect sense. The product is too dense to come out of a pump, tube, or bottle. It has to be in a jar; as unhygienic as it seems, just clean your hands before dipping in. I do have to admit- space could've been used more efficiently as there is an excess of glass used at the bottom to portray more product. Look Revlon, it's OK you don't have to fool us, we love the product too much to care about quantity. Just please don't discontinue! Anyway sorry for the ramble...this is an HG product for this grease ball of a gal.
**I noticed the amount of reviewers bummed about the product not having SPF. When I read the ingredients I noticed 2 mineral sunblocks, Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide. These were listed as the last ingredients so they're in low concentration. I'm gonna bet this is at least an SPF 4 or even an SPF 6. Even so put a sunblock underneath as a base. I use an SPF 45 from the brand Missha and I LOVE it; perfect for oily skin.
I would not purchase this again but I think it is worth checking out. I prefer fuller coverage and this was medium IMO. This transferred. I have oily skin and this dried to a powder finish that made me look dry and flakey in some areas. The color range is limited and the shade I got made me look dead because it was too ashy. It is difficult to find good color match for fair/yellow-olive skin - usually too dark, yellow, orange, or ashy. Finally, it did not last as long as I need.
I can still see where some may get an airbrushed sort of finish and decent lasting power for different skin types. Worth a try but not for me so I returned it.
FYI--I find that one of those little plastic spatulas work great to get product out of jars without contamination as long as you clean between uses. Seriously not a big deal.
I have been an avid Revlon Colorstay Liquid foundation user (the normal/dry #180 Sand Beige) for years. I have tried all sorts of other foundations -- drugstore & department brands. Nothing ever really compared when it came down to performance for the price. I saw this at CVS and decided to pick it up to give it a try; I haven't ever been disappointed by the Colorstay collection. I've never experienced a breakout while using the line, they stay put, and I love that you can build it up to a full coverage without looking cakey. I have to say... this cream version is better! First off -- it is MUCH more convenient to use. The liquid foundation has always been messy (put the pump on the bottle already Revlon!) and sometimes can take a bit to dry. This cream foundation uses considerably less product for a better coverage. It dries quickly, creating a matte look that lasts. I also haven't had to use as much setting powder in order for it to stay throughout my work day. I have gotten compliments on my complexion since I've started using it because the coverage is great, as to be expected. I add a tiny squirt of primer to it, mixing it up on the back of my hand, then I use a cream foundation brush (Real Techniques expert face brush) and the results are unbeatable. Overall, give it a try, you won't be disappointed.
I love this. Nothing much that has not been said. Great, creamy texture and great coverage. Perfect for oily skin as it stays matte all day. I am in MAC NC30 and the warm golden 320 suits my skin perfectly. Still need concealer but the finish is amazing. I have bought 2 already. They sell out fast in the popular warm golden shade.
Amazing coverage and keeps my skin shine free all day. Does not oxidize. Much better than liquid colorstay.
First off- Probably shouldn't buy if you have dry skin!! It's not great for dry skin, people that complain about how it looked bad on their dry skin need to read reviews first before they buy. A lot of whipped foundations can be drying.....
I have combination skin, more towards the oily side and I absolutely LOVE this foundation. I had been using the regular colorstay for oily skin and while I did like that one I always found it hard to blend because it dried way too fast. This one blends incredibly easy for me and feels like silk. I see people saying it's too hard to blend and they have tried everything but I honestly haven't had any problems. I either use my fingers or a small stippling brush. (the girl that used a powder brush to apply- that's not a good idea, powder brushes aren't meant for liquid or cream) Both ways work great and the foundation looks completely blended and not streaky at all. I found it applies the best right after I put moisturizer on (I don't let the moisturizer dry or soak in too much). I find it to be medium to full coverage, definitely buildable. This foundation has amazing staying power, I apply pretty early in the morning and don't take it off until late in the evening and the foundation usually always looks just as good as in the morning (colorstay always looks better after it has settled/melted into your skin) I've worn this makeup in 100 degree weather too and it didn't come off or become streaky and I can actually go all day without putting powder on my face!!
