This has been discontinued but am writing a review hoping Revlon will take a peek and re-package this product and make it available once again.
With a bit of face moisturizer or primer, this was an awesome foundation --not visible in the most harsh sunlight (the problem I have experienced with other foundation/concealers -you go out in the Sun and everyone can see that your face is painted), did not run off with water or sweat, lasted all day and gave a really good glow to the face. This was even without the face illuminator by Revlon (which I also bought and love).
I used the Fair shade which somehow looked great on my Medium -Tan skin.

I am NW10-15, pretty fair, so finding a drugstore foundation in my shade has always been a challenge. I bought this in 010 Bare Light, the lightest shade. It is probably a good match for NW15, slightly dark for me, but easily blendable. The foundation has a floral scent that is a little over the top, not a big fan. The coverage is minimal, about the same as with a tinted moisturizer. However, this foundation HIGHLIGHTED my flaws, blemishes, pores, skin textures... there seems to be light diffusing particles in the formula, which made it look like there was a spotlight on my face. This is a definite no-buy for me.

Okay, I picked this up at Tuesday Morning which is a sure sign it's a discontinued product. But I purchased it because I love, love, love the Revlon Spa Illuminator. I got the medium shade for 2 reasons.....1) that's my skintone, and 2) that's all they had. :-)
Ladies, if you don't like the brush applicator, removing it is very simple. Just grasp it with your fingers and pull it off. It will usually come off in 2 or 3 pieces. I did that as soon as I got back to work....it's easy. But if that doesn't work, pull out your lady pliers and do it.
So far, I think I'm going to like this. I've only tried it on the back of my hand and I thought I might have put on too much, but it spreads and evens out pretty well. The medium seems to have a pink undertone to me, although another reviewer said it had yellow undertones.
As for the smell/fragrance....not the best in the world. Smells a little plastic-y to me, but nothing that's going to cause me to trash it. It doesn't smell as good as the Spa Illuminator for sure, but it doesn't smell like garbage either.
I think I'll definitely get my $4.99 out of it.

I got this on clearance, thought I would try it since I like the Spa Illuminator from Revlon. Just like the Illuminator, the brush is awful, but pulls out easily with pliers. Then, the packaging is perfect! I will update my review at a later time, because I tried it while having more breakouts than usual. Coverage seemed good, but not sure if it made me breakout or just stress...

I am 53 and have super oily skin.. Have hormonal brak outs, pores that need to be minimized. I never buy anything thats not for oily skin... but I saw this on sale for under $3.00. So I bought it. My skin does not get oily in a few hours like it does with other foundations made for oily skin. In fact it stays fairly matt all day. The coverage is great! I am so surprised by this product. I dont mind the brush at all, but I smooth it all out after the application. I am going to see if I can find more and stock up! I have tried some of the most expensive foundations and never been as happy as I am with this one.

I think this may have been discontinued. Why is it when everyone loves a product the company decides to quit making it?

Like many others, I bought this because it was cheap. I honestly hate this foundation. The SMELL is awful. It smells like burnt chocolate. I hate it. It goes away after but I just hate smelling it while applying it. The brush applicator makes the foundation go on streaky. I used a different brush and it made it less streaky but I still don't like how it looks. It's pretty light coverage and leaves a dewy finish. I wouldn't repurchase even if it was $1. May work for some people but I believe there are far better foundations out there!

Like most people, I also bought this on whim for $2 at CVS on clearance. I really like Revlon's Colorstay in Combination/Oily, so I thought I'd give it a try since I had nothing to lose with the ridiculous price. I bought it in 003 Light.
Honestly, I had no expectation for this foundation. I have oily skin, so I wasn't sure if this would work, since the consistency is kind of creamy and I thought it would glide off my skin in the summer heat. But I was wrong! This product really evens out my skin texture, minimize my big pores, and provides medium coverage without feeling like heavy foundation. It actually feels more like a tinted moisturizer, which I love since it's so hot outside these days.
Not really excited about the packaging, though. I'm not sure why I have to dispense it through the crappy brush, and I wonder why someone thought that was a good idea. I just use my fingers to apply and smooth it onto my face.
Also, it looked kind of dark for me in the tube, but it blends out lighter than it looks. I found a way to make it work for my NC25 skin in the summer. After applying this, I dust my Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Transluscent all over my face, which makes the foundation seem a tad lighter and makes it suit my skin tone much better.
My mom actually commented that my face looked so natural and my skin looked so beautiful. After she said that, I immediately went to three local CVS and Rite Aids and bought four extras, just in case they decide to discontinue this product. Glad I found it, and glad it was so cheap!!

I have this in the shade Medium which is yellow-toned and it is a good match for me. I was in need of a sheer coverage foundation and this worked out nicely. It gave me a light dewy finish and although coverage is light, it evens out the redness on my cheeks nicely. I find that it's not the best at controlling oily skin because I still looked a little shiny with this so be sure to set it with powder. I also don't like the brush tip on the foundation. It's rather unhygienic and find it best to just "dot" on the skin then blend with my regular foundation brush (usually sigma F80 or the ELF flat top one).

Like many other reviewers, I picked this up at a 75% off deal at CVS (hope that doesn't mean they are getting rid of it). So, I thought for about $2 I'd try a new makeup out if it doesn't work I'm not out a bunch of money. I have very oily skin, large pores, redness, blackheads, and occasional pimple. This goes on so smooth, even, and makes my skin look almost flawless. So many foundations look cakey, and the oily makes them feel and look like it is sliding off my face. Not this, I was so surprised, b/c it is not marketed to be the miracle foundation for oily skin. I've worn it over the last month and a half in all kinds of temps, and it still looks decent at the end of the day. I'll be buying this at full price again!

This foundation was a close-out item at my local grocery store, so I got it for about $2.80. I got the lightest shade, and it fits me perfectly.
I'm not a big fan of the brush, but I just put some of the foundation on the back of my hand and use my own foundation brush to apply it. It blends in perfectly and lasts if I set it with a finishing powder. I got it for dirt cheap, but I would pay full price for it.

LOVE! Unlike a lot of other people, I find that the brush is effective in applying the foundation smoothly. If you're expecting flawless application with just 2 brush strokes, than you may be disappointed. The foundation blends beautifully into my skin, giving a very natural finish. The color I got matched my skin perfectly. My only complaint is the way the brush is attached to the tube makes it very difficult to clean. I tried and had to bend the bristles aside in attempt to remove foundation that was deep within the bush near the dispensing area. But overall, I am very happy with this product.
And did I mention I got this on sale at CVS for a little over 3.50? WOOT

This foundation leaves my combination skin greasy looking and sticky feeling. I bought the lightest shade and it is too dark for my skin. I am also not impressed with the brush - no way to keep it clean. Controlling how much foundation is dispensed is also difficult, because you don't see it coming, until it is too late. I don't know what I was thinking, when I bought this one. Well, just checked Revlon's website, and it is no longer showing it as one of their available foundation. I guess that means, once the current stock is sold off, it will be gone. In my book, that's not a loss.

omg this stuff is fantastic. I consider myself a label wh*re, so I usually only use department store stuff. But I was tight on money so I tried this.
So glad I did, (I get better results using a brush to apply it, so this is reviewed under this method.)
It brightened and even my skin tone and it gives me a slightly (very very slight) dewy look without any sparkles. I dont see any shimmer, but I still look lit from within. My favorite part is that is covers my huge nose pores and makes them look airbrushed. Nothing ever does that. I mildly combo skin, so this actually feels like it moisturizes some areas but doesnt make the greasy spots worse.
I will definitely repurchase. I will update if i change my mind, but i cant see that happening unless it breaks me out.

Second to Revlon Colorstay for Combination / Oily Skin, is this fancy product. For me the built in brush is just brilliant. The coverage, which is light to medium, is pretty much for the the cold or windy days where your skin just becomes a bit flaky.

I too picked this up at CVS for 75% off & combined with a coupon I ended up paying 49 cents so I didnít really care either way if it worked or not. But big surprise, I actually really like it! I got the lightest shade, 01/Fair. I have pale, neutral-toned skin, and I am lucky that most fair foundation shades work on me. The color is a good match. I was expecting for an Ďage-defyingí product this would have a really rich & creamy consistency, so I was (pleasantly) surprised to find the texture to be lightweight, just a tad denser in consistency and coverage than a tinted moisturizer. The brush applicator is kind of unnecessary. I use it to spread the foundation on my face, then blend it with my fingers, then go over again with the brush to give sort of an air-brushed finish. I just wipe the brush with a tissue when Iím done to get rid of the excess. I do find this method kind of wasteful because the brush makes it hard to control how much comes out. I donít really consider the brush to be unhygenic since I always apply it to a clean face, anyways. This gives me light-medium coverage. It kind of diffuses redness, minor blemishes, and darkness under my eyes, but doesnít really offer total coverage. Thatís fine by me, I like a natural look. The finish is neither dewy nor matte, it just looks like natural skin. And no visible sparkles/shimmer, at least to my eyes. The coverage lasts a typical day, just sort of gradually fading away a bit by the days end. It removes easily and hasnít caused any breakouts or irritation. Its not going to replace my favorite (LíOreal True Match N2) but its made my way into my foundation rotation. Definitely a worthwhile purchase for me.

My face literally glows...My last facial was during the holidays, so this is definately a sign of good things to come.
This product was on 75% off (thats $3.70) at CVS for med-deep shade. Too cheap to passup. I was like, whats the worst that could happen? I will chuck it in the trash. Its the cost of a coffee. Little did I know this product would totally rock!
1. Brush - I dont find it unhygenic.
I hold the brush under water for just a second before I squeeze out the product. After that it doesnot streak that much. After Im done, I wash it with hot water just like a regular makeup brush.
2. packaging - its transparent plastic so its easy to identify the exact shade (specially for drugstore purchses). the quality of the plasic looks pretty sturdy.
3. Shade itself - The face literally glows when you put it on. It takes a few seconds to dry up, but after that the face doesnot look oily. People who enjoy fresh, dewy look would like it.
4. Coverage - It has the right amount of coverage - face doesnot look madeup, nor does it look too plain. It covered my acne scars with double application to the area. It stayed all day and I didnt have to touch up.
I cannot think of any! I totally heart this product and Im going to the drugstore to pile up on a few.

I just grabbed this at Walmart today on sale for $3.59. I am sad to say that it didn't work for me because of the color and finish. I bought shades 05 07 and 08 to try and figure out which would suit me best. They were all a bit on the pinkish side. The texture was creamy and looks like it can be dewy but really dries off to a matte finish which I am not fond of due to my dry skin. I can see this work for pink undertones, but not for yellow undertones like mines. For comparison, I'm a NC42- NC45 in Mac and figured out that the darkest shade available does not match me. Colorstay Caramel and Toast suit me best so I will exchange them for that.

I've been really surprised that Revlon liquid foundations would be my favorites of those I've tried so far, including some rather high-end brands. I only wear liquid foundation in the winter, since my skin is too oily in the T-zone to wear it when the weather is warm. I love Colorstay for the days when I feel like I've got a lot of redness and blemishing to cover up (it makes my skin look flawless when I apply it with a dense stippling brush). But SPA is my go-to foundation these days for when I want medium coverage to even out my complexion when I'm not having too many blemish issues. Instead of the "made-up" matte effect of Colorstay, SPA is much dewier and natural-looking ("fresh-faced," if you will). I also find it blends into my skin easily and is build-able for a range of coverage. Yes, the packaging sucks, but I bought a small generic cosmetics pump bottle, sterilized it, and squeezed the tube of SPA foundation into that. I don't find oxidation or separation to be a problem in the pump bottle, as I go through the product quickly enough. Some reviewers have mentioned that it's a bit pricey for the amount you get, but I always stock up on Revlon foundations when the drugstores have a buy one, get one free sale, so I don't find it breaking the bank at all! The only complaint I have is that I think I'm between shades and it would be nice if this were available in a wider selection of colors, like Colorstay.

-the way it leaves my face feeling once it's off (dry and rough)
-the brush (I pulled the bristles out with pliers)
-can be cakey
-matte finish (I prefer a semi-matte)
-coverage (this is a light-medium coverage; I've had TMs that give better coverage)
-color (it matched my skin perfectly)
Over all I prefer Neutrogena Healthy Skin foundation because of the finish and how it leaves my skin. This is just an okay foundation but I probably won't use it unless it's an emergency and I run out of Neutrogena's HS foundation.
