I thought this was a great idea, but it didn't really give me much coverage. It's just too sheer on my skin. I won't repurchase.

Nice idea (i.e. "skin matching") but it doesn't work! I bought the "light/210" shade and tried using it on bare skin as well as on top of various moisturisers and primers (including Revlon "Beyond Natural") but no luck. My skin would end up looking orange and far from "natural". Waste of money.

I bought this during summer in Belgium and I like this as an alternative of conventional foundation for summer (it has SPF 15, which is not much though during summer, but still better than nothing).
I have it in shade Light - it comes of white from the tube, but oxidizes and changes according to your skin tone in matter of seconds.
It is fairly easy to work with, I have to use moisturizer under it. It leaves only sheer coverage, but I think it would be buildable into medium coverage if desired.
It has 30ml packaging, which is not much, but otherwise the packing is fairly nice and easy to use. It is not scented, which I find preferrable in makeup.

I received this in a swap in the 210 Light shade. It's a little similar to the L'Oreal Magic BB in color and oxidation time; it changes to match your skintone within 5 seconds of blending it in. Unlike the L'Oreal BB, however, this doesn't have a grainy texture to it; in fact it's very fluid and lightweight, much like a facial moisturizer or tinted moisturizer. I tried wearing this during the fall and winter, and it's worked out well for my combo-oily skin, which teeters on the drier side during the winter. During the fall where I live, however, the months are still a little warm and given that this foundation seems to work like a moisturizer, it does have a noticeably dewy finish. Again, this is probably best for dry skin.
Also unlike the L'Oreal BB, however, this will only give you sheer coverage; medium coverage is possible, but I've noticed that the more gets layered on itself, the more warm/orange the color, so I caution against packing on so much foundation and opting for a concealer to hide blemishes and just to use this foundation to even out the skintone. Staying power is decent for a liquid, moisturizing foundation, at about 5 to 6 hours. I have to blot once during wear.
The packaging is standard; it comes in a plastic, screw-top, 30ml tube. I personally don't like the screw-top cap because the product is on the runny side, and when it leaks out of the tube and into the cap and dries onto the inside of the cap or the applicator, it's a mess to clean up and just looks gross when it's dry and caked.
Also, this runs for about $10 for 30ml of product, which is a tad bit steep for how little coverage you'll get out of this, and the sunscreen protection is hardly there at SPF15. You might as well invest in another sunscreen with a higher SPF. I love the texture and lightweight feel of this foundation and how it keeps my skin moisturized during its dry months, but I've used products with more impressive results at more affordable prices, so I will not be repurchasing.

I really, really like this foundation! The colour I use is medium, but I only use it in summer for when I have a tan as it is too dark for my normal skin tone. But it matches really well with my skin tone for when I have a tan! It's also great for summer as it has SPF 15, so it's protecting your skin whilst making you look great!!

This was TERRIBLE! I have very pale skin and am usually the lightest shade of any brand, so I bought the lightest shade of this. However, it somehow manages to be both too light and too dark at the same time. It is really orange, but with a weird grayish hue to it as well. It makes my skin look really oily and my pores look huge, as well as providing basically NO coverage at all. The discolouration and blemishes just show right through this foundation, as if you're not wearing anything. The packaging is also pretty bad. Not a fan.

This was the very first foundation I used, so I didn't know much about makeup yet haha...
I first tried this in the Medium-Deep. The coverage was great, but the color was a bit too dark for me. I thought I was just using too much foundation...so I tried it again. The second time it came out even darker! I then decided to go a shade down to the Medium. The Medium was kind of light (which was good, b/c the color would get a bit darker). Then the second time I tried it, it turned even darker than the Medium-Deep! I really wanted this to work, so I even tried the Light-Medium. None of these came close to my skin color at all! That's when I noticed these beads in it...they were all clustered together, making the foundation all these different colors. There were times I used the lightest shade, and it could go from straight white to a dark, chocolate brown!
This didn't make me breakout, but It made my skin kind of greasy. When I first got this, it came w/ a primer. The primer didn't really help w/ smoothing this out! This foundation would cover my problems, but looked blotchy and cakey :P Really highlighted my pores too!
The packaging imo wasn't that great. The product poured out fast, and was just a mess for me!
The price was pretty expensive for the quality! Definitely not buying again.

This worked wonders for me. I wanted an everyday-foundation, since my Revlon Colorstay seemed to cover my face just a little too much for everyday.
What I really liked about this product is that it was very natural on my skin, and I ended up using it all up. Love it!
The only thing I wasn't happy about was the packaging, I'm not the biggest fan of the tube!
Age: 36-43 Skin: Sensitive, Fair Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I bought this in 210 which is light/pale. It was good at first. However, after about 6 weeks the color changed into a dark orange tone. I am deeply disappointed since this product is expensive where I live.

Saw this at walgreens for about 5 dollars. Decided to try this, and got the shade Medium Deep. In the winter, it look great on me because my skin was lighter in the winter. Now I'm in a swimming class and I have gotten darker. Medium Deep makes me look like a slight oompa loompa. Wouldn't really consider it as a foundation, more like a tinted moisturizer. If you haven't used yours in a while, SHAKE IT. I REPEAT, SHAKE IT. If you don't, you'll really look like an oompa loompa. I didn't shake mine and when I put it on, I looked like I spent too much time in a tanning salon. Now it doesn't look right on me, and I'm planning to toss it because it simply looks too dark on my skin and I don't know what I can do with it.

I've watched several reviews on youtube about this product before purchasing it and i thought i'd give it a try...Well it is not so bad if you have no scars from acne on your face..It gives very light coverage and even thought i have medium skin tone and got the medium/deep shade it is really light for my skin...I think it's the fact that it is white at first and then gets the actual shade...I don't know..My skin have several scars and discolorations so it doesn't really work for me if i use it on it's own..I put it after my moisturizer just to even out my skin tone and then i apply my regular foundation(vichy normateint)...I love the fact that it has SPF15...!Even though I really don't hate this product, I don't think I would purchase it again..

Usually I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of Revlon foundations, but this one was a bit of a dud. I picked it because I like a sheer coverage and have very pale skin and thought this would be great for me because it supposedly matches the colour of your skin. However, the coverage of this foundation is much more like a tinted moisturiser, in fact I wouldn't even call it a foundation because it didn't cover the odd blemish I did have and I have pretty good skin! The colour also looked quite chalky on my skin and it did not photograph well. However, it felt really nice on my skin and felt quite moisturising - so it might be good for those with dry skin, but make sure to try it out in natural night first so as not to appear ghostly!

I'm a huge fan of Revlon foundations but I don't find myself often reaching for this one. Like what other reviewers had said, it's like a tinted moisturizer rather than a foundation. I like it's blendability and it's a huge plus when foundation disappears and matches my skin tone.However, the coverage is so not enough for me :( The veins on my cheeks still shows upon wearing this. I'd rather powder my face with regular pressed powder if I want a fast makeup on the go, instead of wasting my time applying this foundation then set it with powder...and yet the coverage is the same. I'm still giving this 4 lippies coz its doing its job adapting its color to my skin and it's the perfect makeup for summer/ beach time when minimal coverage is alright.

I picked this up in a clearance for $4.90 and looking at it I thought it wouldn't be that great. I just needed a summer foundation as the rest of my body is really tan right now and my Estee Lauder Double Wear is too light for me right now. I figured that if it was crap I would just throw it out at that price. I was pleasantly suprised! I wore this today and the temperature was in the high 30's today, so basically stinking hot all day. Then I went out this evening with my day makeup on and when I went to remove it at around 11pm it was still looking great! I am so glad I bought this and I'm going back tomorrow to pick up another one before they run out. Its a medium coverage foundation and with concealer does an excellent job of making me look flawless. I love this foundationa and am disappointed that it is discontinued.

It works more like a tinted moisturizer rather than a foundation. It comes in three shades(mine is pale/light). Sheer coverage. Its got spf15. Initial color that comes out of the the tube is white but when blended in, it slowly matches your skin. Price is abit much , 30 bucks for 30 ml. The only problem i have with this is the packaging. The tube seems to leak product, wasting it. In general its okay for a day when you want to wear foundation or want minimal face coverage with an spf.

Had been using Chanel Lumiere 30 Cendre and Estee Lauder DW Light 3.0, but read some reviews about this and had to try it.
I have older skin, so I need to be careful about foundations.
Color 230 is what I purchased. I put this on in the a.m. and went about my business. Checked my face a few times and each time liked the finish better than ANY other foundation I have tried.
It does become more visible or obvious after 15 minutes- 1 hour, so you definitely should put on less than you think you need and see what amount works best for you.
To go from spending $45-$80 for foundation to $10 and look better longer? WIN.

Targeted for those who want sheer medium coverage that's also concerned with oiliness(talc and boron nitrade as absorbent) and aging(SPF 15, tho may seem inadequate, a lot better than nothing). Sun protection is provided with about 3% zinc oxide and titanium dioxide that work as physical blocker against sun's damaging UV's, primarily UVA is fully coveraged by zinc oxide(tho the amount isn't too impressive).
I did experience cakiness at the first two or three times of application, but I've analyzed it's not because of the application technique, rather, the quantity of the foundation. Fyi, I have a lot of post-acne hyperpigmentations, no cystic outbreaks ever, just casual, weekly nodular outbreaks, minor whiteheads and blackheads.
How can I come up with such conclusion that I've been wearing too much?
Thing is, this liquid foundation doesn't give an immediate coverage, so you probably have to wait 30mins to see if it has properly blended on your face(at first I felt like I was wearing nothing, so I kept applying, yeah, crazy.) Starting from 2-3 pea sized amount to the entire face, now I only need as little as a pea or smaller amount to actually covers my whole face(you'll see after 30mins). Yes, it doesn't cover well, so if you're a coverage addict, do yourself a favor and buy estee's double wear, or if you want more coverage, buy a big sunglasses or a solid mask instead.
After using it only in a small amount, you can feel that the color matches your skin perfectly, provided you've bought the right color and will make you look as natural as it gets(if you want to feel or look natural-er, go ahead and forget foundation). The texture is unbelievably silky without being cakey after hours, I'm not sure if it's water resistant or not, but unless you're heavy perspirer or a marine activist(or a mermaid), this shouldn't be a problem.
Another thing, my friend did experience cakiness, but it should be noted that she has a normal-dry skin, I told her to put a rich moisturizer beneath and that solved the problem, also don't let the SPF count fool you, the amount you need for this foundation to work is so small, so if you're going outside, please don't forget to wear sunscreen underneath.
- the texture is similar to lotion, but more to liquid, it's easy to get the product more than you need.
- at first it comes out white lotion with dark micro-beads(pigments), spreading it will break the beads.
- there's a notable ingredients segregation in the product, SHAKE WELL BEFORE USE.
- thanks to a more liquidy texture, it's easy for the product to leak out, sometimes heavily, storing it upside down will solve the problem.
- you might think it's a bit pink at first, after it dries out, it'll be more orange, wisely note your undertone.
- the pigment is quite rich, hence a little and sheer application is encouraged.
- I'm NC40 and medium is a perfect match.(Hope it helps on color selection)

I must start out by saying that I have not worn foundation since I was, like, 12. I'm 33 now, but I just haven't needed it. However, this month I had some particularly bad hormonal breakouts, and in trying to treat it with a few OTC acne products, found my skin looking redder and blotchier than usual. I decided that I wanted to grab a super light, sheer foundation just to even out my skin tone til things heal back up. I had absolutely no clue what to buy, and knew I didn't want to spend a lot on it because I don't plan on wearing it forever. So I found this on the clearance rack for 75% off. I must say, that overall I like it. I got the medium color and it seems to blend quite well with my skin tone. I apply it with a slightly damp makeup sponge and it's got enough coverage to even my skin tone out, make everything look pretty and matte, and give me a slight "glow" without being thick, mask-like, or chalky. It wears very well on my skin...it doesn't make it oily and doesn't gum up in my lines. I have worn it several times before going out for a few hours and when I come home it has looked perfect every time. Even though it goes on pretty sheer, a LOT of it comes off when I wash my face with my Clarisonic, so it actually seems like it's quite pigmented. Really like it, although I can't say I'd buy it again because I just don't wear foundation all that much!

I snatched a bottle of this off the shelf at my local Walgreens because it was on clearance for $3.50 - now I see why this is a 'last chance' item. This foundation is TERRIBLE! The coverage is so bad, I wouldn't even consider it to be a tinted moisturizer. The directions say to blend with your fingertips until white formula transforms to match your exact skin tone, buuuut..the product peels during this process! -_- In addition, this foundation makes my oily skin dry and ashy looking. I will never look at a tube of this crap again.

I bought in the light 210 shade, and it looks really chalky and cakey. My skin is oily and it somehow made it look dried up and flaky. And the coverage SUCKED. It felt like I wasn't wearing anything I will give it that, but it also looked like I wasn't wearing anything either...
