After all the hype around this product, I decided to purchase this on a trip I took to Buffalo as we hadn't received it in Canada yet. The coverage is medium-full coverage. I'm a medium skin tone with yellow undertones, I bought Warm Golden, it matches pretty closely and I like the finish, but I feel that in pictures this foundation leaves a white cast...even without setting it with powder...I'm not sure if that's because I should buy a shade darker or if it's just the foundation. I wonder if anyone else has had the same problem with this foundation? You get a lot of product and it will last you a long time, but if you have warm undertones, it will be difficult to find your right colour. I would not repurchase this again.

Got this product out of curiosity and all the hype... I don't normally wear cream, liquid, tinted typed of foundations, just mineral powder foundations but I'm sure like most girls, we like to try new products! I waited for a good sale until making my purchase and got if for 40% off at my local Kmart. I tried it twice and liked the coverage but only pulled it out for special occasions. Recently, with the holidays and lots of photography, I decided to pull it out again. I may have purchased the wrong color because it kind of looked a little grayish but I lightly set it with powder foundation so it balanced out. The finished was nice and I do have to agree with everyone else that YES, IT DOES LOOK BETTER TOWARD THE END OF THE DAY! So weird how that works, but I noticed that when I was getting ready to take my makeup off, it was looking really good, almost airbrushed! With that I used it a total of three days in a row until I started noticing IT WAS BREAKING ME OUT! I don't think I've ever broken out from a product before so it was kind of hard to believe. I've stopped the Colorstay Whipped Creme Makeup and my breakouts are slowly going away but not completely. I am bummed because it gave a natural finish, medium coverage, and just gave me a flawless look but in the end it just wasn't meant to be.

I have EXTREMELY sensitive and combo/oily skin. I've had to use LORAC foundation for the past year and was never happy with it. After watching the YouTube videos and reading reviews, I gave it a chance using my coupon at Ulta.
Personally I think $15 for a drugstore product is ridiculous but since its Ulta and I had a coupon and they take exchanges, I took the plunge.
SO HAPPY I DID. Best foundation ever. It actually looks better as the day goes on! Never had THAT happen. Only blot once and it's amazing. Blends great, wears well, lightweight, didn't break me out. Love it. Got NUDE and SAND BEIGE to blend the colors for my skin.
I even got my mom convinced this stuff was the best. She used coupons and reward bucks at CVS to buy it and only pay $1.83!!!! Super awesome product, ESPECIALLY with coupons!

-Love the coverage of this foundation, very buildable and works well with a matte powder layer on top too!
-Although not necessarily a full 24 hours, the staying power it has is really extensive, which I like.
-My skin still looks decent over a long period of time, and that's saying a lot for someone who has an oily T-Zone. It doesn't have a completely matte finish but my skin looks refreshing, youthful, and only slightly dewy over a period of 8-10 hours.
-The creme itself is kind of cool, after you take a little product out of the pot, the indents from where you took product settle back into a smooth layer after a few minutes.
-Price is expensive, at least for my college student finances. I mean I suppose it's worth it (this is the best "liquid" foundation I've tried for my skin) but I feel as if you're not getting enough product for the price.
- The glass jar thing is unnecessary. It looks pretty, but I think functionality should be considered here.
- I've heard that for warmer skin tones, the colors don't always match up well. Perhaps they should make their shade selection more extensive in the future.

Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation comes in a large glass container. It looks very pretty, kind of like Chanel, but is excessive and unnecessary.
I would call this a medium - full coverage foundation. It is a thick cream that you can build easily from medium to a fuller coverage. This really isn't a heavy foundation, but you can feel it on your face. It feels sort of silicone-y... Nothing terrible, it is just different.
This foundation has a very natural finish. Not too matte, not dewy. It just looks like skin. That is probably my favorite part of this foundation. Of course, setting it with a powder will alter the finish-- a little more matte, but still very nice.
This foundation claims to last 24 hours. I have no need for foundation to sit on my face for any amount of time nearing 24 hours. This foundation started wearing down on my T-zone after 8 hours, which is still pretty good without a primer. I've found that a primer will nix this problem in the bud.
I don't have a lot of cons, but I have a few things that ought to be noted.
First, this is not the cheapest of drugstore foundations. I purchased mine at Wal-Mart for $10.94, which is as cheap as you can get it unless there is a sale going on. I really like this foundation, so I don't mind. Another thing is application. When I first purchased this I was a little stumped as to how to apply it. I didn't want to use my fingers (like the instructions suggest) just because I find it a little unhygienic. After some trial and error, I found that I get the best results using a stippling brush or a dense kabuki-style brush.
ALL IN ALL:
I really enjoy this foundation. It looks great and the texture is...interesting. Give it a try!

This foundation has awesome coverage and staying power. I've taken it through very cold and very hot days, and it didn't fade or melt off my oily skin. It doesn't dry as matte or powdery as the original Revlon Colorstay oily line looks, although it's not dewy, either. It is still high coverage and can look slightly mask-like if you don't blend it out well enough, so if that's not your cup of tea, I'd skip this foundation. (This stuff is awesome against acne scars or redness in general!)
The heavy glass tub packaging is both beautiful and annoying because you have to scoop the foundation out of the tub with a spatula or your finger. An easy solution is to get a cheap airless pump and transfer the foundation into it. The formula feels more like a gel than "whipped", which I like! It applies easily with fingers, brushes and a sponge, although my favorite is a damp Beauty Blender.
If you have strong yellow or warm undertones, there will not be a good match for you in this line. I am very warm NC25/30 (Golden Beige is a decent but not-quite-warm-enough shade for me in the original Colorstay Oily/Combo line) and the closest I can get in the Whipped line is Medium Beige, which starts out too light on my skin and oxidizes orange. I've tried mixing it with various other foundations and it still makes all of them look orange by the end of the day, which is not flattering. I'll have to stray back to the oily/combo liquid Colorstay because the color selection in this line just annoys me.
Also, I THINK this breaks me out in cystic acne after a few times of use. I don't break out from the original Colorstay, although I've heard of people having the vice versa experience (breaking out from the original Colorstay but not breaking out from the whipped version). As always, YMMV - your skin may like this formula better than mine.

The only gripe I have with this foundation is the color selection. Revlon really does not work for NC 30-NC 35 skin. I have the same issue with Revlon colorstay in its liquid form. It is a pretty expensive drug store foundation and I haven't found that mixing two colors results in a more yellow or olive tone.

Finish: For my oily skin, the finish is demi-matte. I absolutely LOVE the finish of it! It looks natural. One thing that should be noted is that if you have dry patches on your face or flakies from a Retin-A or other chemical exfoliant regimen, this fdtn may enhance that
Coverage: Medium to full, buildable. I love the coverage. It evens out my tone unevenness just right, without looking unnatural (mask like). When I'm out at night, I can build up the coverage to get more of a flawless, airbrushed look
Wear: Very long lasting- I'd say I get about 12 hours of wear with this, possibly more. I'm oily, so long wearing foundations are a must for me. No transferring either. Also, it removes easily- that's one thing you won't get with most other long wearing fdtns. My current routine to remove my CS Whipped is to use Pond's Night Calming Makeup Removing Wipes, followed by Mario Badescu Botanical Gel Cleanser. Not a trace is left behind. Extra bonus: Revlon Whipped contains salicylic acid- YAY for us acne prone people! I've never broken out using this fdtn; if anything, wearing this fdtn, versus others, has improved my skin
Application: I've tried the Beauty Blender sponge, my Sephora mineral powder kabuki, and Sigma F80 & F84 Kabuki brushes. The brushes seem to 'eat' the fdtn up and move it around in an odd fashion (the fdtn is not the right consistency for these types of brushes, IMO). My FAVORITE way of applying CS Whipped is with my fingers. It seriously spreads like silk. It almost feels like silk, actually. I have never encountered a fdtn that blended so FLAWLESSLY like this does. It also isn't one of those super fast drying fdtns you have to rush to blend before it sets- you can take your time blending
Price: $13 USD, which is expensive for a drug store fdtn, but it performs like a high end fdtn
Shade Selection: This is the major con (in my opinion)- while there is a decent amount of shades, there is only one or two yellow toned shades in the entire collection! The rest are pink toned, but mainly beige; I'm MAC NC25 for reference and the closest I can get to a shade match is 300 Warm Golden. I mix it with my ELDW in 2W1 Rattan (just a smidgeon) to get some more yellow tones to it
Packaging: Luxurious glass jar packaging; reminiscent of Chanel packaging, so it looks pretty on your vanity, however it's not really practical for travel (good thing I don't travel much); I wash my hands like no other before applying makeup so the fact that I put my fingers in it to get product does not bother me- this will be a deal breaker for some, though
Scent: There's a slight scent but NOTHING like the original CS; the scent is neutral (not good or bad) and don't notice it once it's on my face
Overall: This is an excellent foundation, but Revlon SERIOUSLY needs to step up their game with the undertones of their fdtns. Quit giving us all GREIGES and expecting it to 'just work' for everyone. I would pay more for it if I could get a better shade match. Perhaps Revlon should incorporate MAC's system of undertones (warm and cool, but not leaving out the neutral people either). This would get a 5 lippie rating, but because of the one-size-fits-all undertones, it will get 4 lippies from me

Color selection good for drugstore brand. Product is not suitable for oily/acne prone skin, the cones in the product help it slide onto the skin and doesn't prevent it from transferring to everything else. I bought three in different colors and all three had lids that became stripped with normal wear. This really makes me wonder what is in this product to make plastic brittle. I am using normal pressure in turning and loosening the lid. I worked for a cosmetic counter. So if you are looking for a foundation that stays put,doesn't clog pores, and actually stays on...go to Lancome. I don't work for them but I do wear foundations that cost a little but more than Revlon...but for what you are paying for this...you could invest In a better foundation with help. This was not worth the high price at the drugstore in my experience.

I really like this. I haven't decided if I like this better than the original Revlon Colorstay liquid foundation for combo skin. I really love both. I think this one is better for me in the winter while the liquid is better for me in the summer. The liquid is a bit dryer while the whipped foundation may get slightly oily on me. I only say that because it seems a bit less solid on my forehead by the end of the day when it is time to take off my makeup. The whipped formula is medium to full coverage depending on how you build it. It is very buildable. I apply it with a round makeup sponge. I really would like to try the Beauty Blender (when I actually remember to buy it).

I love how this is a drugstore foundation which I normally steer clear of because of how many bad experiences I've had with drugstore foundations in the past. I got this for about 20$ CAD and was recommended it by a youtuber. I decided to try it because she said it delivers full coverage yet it didn't break her out and has a pleasant smell.
I bought this right before school started, and I have used it up until yesterday. I still have half of the jar left. I apply it with my beauty blender and I would not recommend to use your fingers or any kind of traditional flat foundation brush simply because it would not work well with this consistency.
I have noticed that this foundation (with one layer) is light coverage. You can build it up to full coverage with about one-two more layers. Maybe it's just the way I apply it (with a damp sponge). This foundation starts to wear off for me after about 6 hours. Good colour selection.
Overall, I think it is a good foundation for a drugstore brand. I have not decided whether or not I'll be finishing it now that I have purchased another foundation from sephora, but I'd hate to just leave it. I have noticed little bumps on my cheeks after I started to use this foundation, but I'm not sure if this foundation is what caused them or not. My skin is really sensitive.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair Hair: Red Eyes: Blue
I bought this at Walmart for around $10. They didn't have the lightest shade (or even a space for it), which is usually what I buy, so I went with "buff." It matches my skin color pretty well, surprisingly, but I still think a better match for my pale skin would be "ivory."
The packaging is kind of annoying because it's a tub and I really don't like it when face makeup is in a tub. The product itself is very smooth and blendable. I prefer it to the regular Revlon Colorstay, BY FAR. I have oily/acne-prone skin and this foundation works for me and hasn't broken me out, the consistency is why I was hesitant to buy this in the first place because usually that breaks me out. But it didn't! It's just smooth and awesome. It is medium coverage and lasts a very long time!
One thing I've noticed is that I do have to powder/blot every few hours to avoid shine.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Sensitive, Fair-Medium, Neutral Hair: Brown, Curly, Medium Eyes: Brown
this foundation is perfection. it melts into your skin and stays on and flawless for hours on end. i've worn this on a hot day to work and it didn't budge one bit - it didn't sweat off, didn't transfer, didn't anything but stay looking fab. if you're wanting a long wearing, medium full coverage foundation then i seriously suggest this one, 5/5!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Brown, Straight, Medium Eyes: Hazel
This is definitely an HG Drugstore foundation! First off I love how light and airy this is while applying and on my skin. It's not heavy and not a feeling of pounds of makeup on. I apply this with the real techniques face brush. I got this in buff because I thought the ivory would be a little too pink. Buff is the perfect color in the fall/winter months, but when I have a little more sun in the spring/summer it's a little to light. I love the coverage so much it really covers my acne scars and current blemishes! It lasts quite long on my oily skin which is a major plus. The only complaint would be the packaging since the jar is very cumbersome and if it tips over the product goes to the top. Overall this is a great foundation to try if you are looking for one!
Age: 30-35 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Neutral Hair: Red, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Blue
I so wanted this to work. The coverage is pretty good, color match is spot on (I'm very fair but need a yellow base, Buff works perfectly) and there is a ton of product in the jar. However, every time I use this I end up with clogged pores. Little plugs all over my face, which happen to be especially bad in my breakout prone areas. Such a shame because it delivers such a polished look while on my skin. But I'm not interested in a catch 22: wear makeup that looks perfect while it clogs my pores so I HAVE to wear makeup to cover up my clogged pores. Such a waste of money. Boooo.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Normal, Tan Hair: Black Eyes: Black
The coverage for this product is fantastic and it stays on for a long time. However, the finish isn't very natural and can appear shiny. It is really good, however, when worn with some sort of powder on top that sets it.

This is the first product that (finally) compelled me to write a review. Aside from being *extremely* oily, I am also quite acne prone. I work in the cosmetics industry so I am very hesitant to try "mass" products; but I've read so many reviews I couldn't pass it up for the price. Not to mention salicylic acid is a big ingredient plus for my skin type. I like a FULL coverage and using a stippling brush, I was able to build it up to a look I'm pleased with. I wouldn't consider this to be whipped cream in my own words as it isn't light and airy; but more of a gel - where it covers, but is breathable - if that makes sense. With the interesting texture, I don't use a primer. I did some experimenting, but have just preferred it without & used a finely milled loose powder to fill in any areas of noticeable pores. Normally any full coverage foundation starts to lift and separate on my oily skin within a few hours, not with this. I haven't experienced any breakouts either. I'm using the fairest shade, 110 Ivory which suits me, but I am fair, not porcelain, so truly light girls wouldn't have luck with the shade range at this point in time. Ideally I wish I could go with one shade lighter as I did get slight oxidation, but luckily it was minimal & didn't get too warm #orange#. The jar packaging concerns me for the sake of hygiene, but all in all, a lovely product. I have repurchased, and even gave one to my mother. Also, after confessing some secrets of cheap product use with a coworker, she was using it too with her very dry skin type.

I can't decide if I like this product or not. I'm a big fan of the original Revlon Colorstay and have been using it for a few years now. When the whipped version was released, I was excited to try it, especially since it is SPF free and I have been looking for a foundation that photographs well for awhile now. The texture is really strange; it's similar to pudding and not light and fluffy like you'd think. The colors are also a bit different. In the winter I use the original Revlon CS in Buff. This version is a bit lighter, but the next shade up is too dark. I definitely need to use bronzer with this.
The first time I applied this foundation I used my fingertips. It smoothed over my skin with ease but I just generally don't like applying makeup that way because it's far too time consuming to get it into every nook and cranny. The next few times I used a wet sponge but found I had to apply way too much to get the desired coverage. Finally, I started using my Sonia Kashuk flat top buffing brush to work it into the skin and that gave a the best coverage and finish for my preference. The finish is definitely more satin than the original, which I like. However, this formulation feels quite heavy on the skin to me and it doesn't seem to ever set completely. It's also not as long lasting and transfer resistant as the original, and the coverage is lighter (medium). It also weirdly feels a little more drying on my skin, maybe because of the BHA in it, but doesn't control oil as well . This was a bit of a disappointment. I'll probably stick the original Colorstay unless I'm in a hurry and just want to buff something onto my face quickly to go out for a few hours.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brown Eyes: Brown
Let me start off by saying my skin type is definitely combination/oily. I get dryer around my nose and oily on my forehead and chin. I range in-between an NC40 and NC42, as I think I can pull off both as long as I balance it out with a lighter (or darker) powder. I have Revlon whipped foundation is Natural tan. It isn't the perfect shade for me, as my skin tone is a little more golden/yellow, but it's what works best for me (I think). This foundation is reaaaally my favorite drugstore foundation of all time. I've only tried neutrogena healthy shine and l'oreal true match, both were waaaaaaaay too dewy/greasy/oily for me. But this foundation is a God send! The finish is probably what I like about it the most. It's the PERFECT, and I really mean PERRRRR-FECT finish. It's matte with a suble GLOW. Do not mistake GLOW for SHINE/OILY/GREASY. Cause this foundation is NOT oily/shiny/greasy AT ALL. It truly delivers beautiful, natural looking results. It blends sooo nicely and feels so silky soft on your skin. I use my ELF powder brush to work it into my skin and OMG- it looks ahhhmazing.

My skin: NC20-25, Acne-Prone and VERY Oily
I thought my hg foundation was the original liquid formula of revlon colorstay, because i loved the medium-full coverage it gives me, the lasting power and oil control. After hearing all the good reviews I picked up this foundation in Sand Beige (same shade as the original), which matches my skin, although the undertones are more neutral than yellow but nothing a powder and bronzer can't fix.
This foundation surprisingly controlled my oil even better than the liquid version did! I usually have to blot my face every 2 hours and with this one I only had to blot once the entire day! I was VERY impressed!!! :D
Also, I have to mention that the formula is so much more comfortable to wear, and easier to blend. It doesn't dry as fast and it looks more natural on my face. Keeps my face looking flawless and looks great from the moment I put it on until I take it off at night. I am very glad I got this foundation because it is now my new favorite!!!
