Im on my second bottle of this foundation. I have light/medium toned skin and this is one of the first foundations that matches me colorwise perfectly.
It definately is long lasting..I've put it on in the morning and worn it overnight and woken up the next morning to very decent coverage. i like it has SPF and doesnt break me out.
I usually spend about $20 on foundations and this was $30 but for the performance im happy with that, and will contibue to do so.
TIP: i mix with a little bit of moisuriser on areas near my hairline so it spreads more evenly- the only negative is, randomly, (maybe once or twice in the year ive been using it) i get a "patch" that doesnt blend as well as usual. so moisturise well and use with warmth of your fingertips to pat and even out. Defs repurchase!

I came back to this foundation recently after trying almost a dozen others. It's long-lasting, and doesn't make me super-oily like most liquid foundations do. The best drugstore foundations for my oily skin.

LOVE this product.
I have oily-sensitive skin, actually my nose is very oily and I have rosacea on my cheeks.
I have tried other brands but everything seems to irritate my cheeks until I tried this foundation. It covers the redness very well and I have to retouch my nose with poder only once a day and I am set.
The packing is great! I love the pump, you don't have to fight with the bottle to get the product.

I have super oily skin and I find this foundation great. With other foundations my skin feels gross after a few hours. This gives decent coverage and lasts. I have to mix two colours to match my skin - Ivory and Naked, but other than that I love this foundation. Pump bottle is great.

this product is great! it has good coverage and is super long lasting. i used to use the revlon colorstay but after a long day, that foundation made my face feel super gross and made me breakout.after a long day with the almay tlc, my face didn't feel gross at all and i don't break out. it's also a good match for my asian/yellow skintone. i wear this in buff002. i am a sand beige/medium beige in revlon colorstay and a nc25 in mac. just for reference.

Over the course of several months I've been testing numerous foundations and this is one of my top 5.
I purchased this in the shade Buff 02, which works well during the cold, winter months, as I find it to be quite hydrating and matches nicely with my yellow undertones (NC20 in winter). Though a tad light, I compensate with a slightly darker powder.
I find it a bit difficult to blend, as it is much thicker than any other liquid foundation I've used before. It requires a bit more effort and working in small areas is time consuming; however, the end result is fabulous. It is medium coverage, with a natural finish and not completely matte like Revlon Colorstay. It does last a very long time, as I apply at 6am and don't remove until after dinner, with minimal blotting even though I have combo/oily skin. Surprisingly, it does not feel heavy at all, but must be set with a powder otherwise it feels a bit tacky to the touch.
I don't use this daily, but on days when I feel like my skin is a bit tight and dry and needs something that won't draw out moisture but at the same time, keep my oils under control.
The pump is great and a clear bottle is always a plus, in that I can see how much product is left and if I've shaken and mixed the liquid sufficiently. The only drawback is that it is costly in Canada ($18 CDN).

I am older than most who have reviewed this product and would definitely recommend it for mature skin. My skin is very dry so I moisturize fully before I apply makeup. The result is a great natural look that lasts all day. I have used TLC for more than a year.
I have now been using this product for more than two years and although I've tried others during this time, have always gone back to Almay. It just works for me!

I loved this foundation: didn't cake, perfectly matched my skin, covered well, wasn't too matte or oil-slick dewy, the pump was great. BUT it made me breakout. I don't think I have acne-prone skin but this foundation did it. I started getting whiteheads and big inflamed acne wherever this was applied. So upset that I can't use this anymore.
[Update] So I tried it again hoping to find the acne wasn't caused by this, but unfortunately I'm now sure this caused it. So so sad for me because this was such a great color match.

I've used this in Ivory a few times now and I'm very impressed with how it matches my skin (I'm Irish/German, so that part is hard), it lasts all day, and has not caused me to break out. It looks like I just put it on and I've had it on all day and even walked in a light rain a couple of times this afternoon. I highly recommend giving this a try. Excellent coverage; I love it and will buy it again.

My skin seems to hate EVERYTHING.. tried colorstay and it just melted off my skin where i get oily... not very appealing. This stuff stayed! I always get told how pretty my skin is [far from good skin haha] i prefer to apply with a stippling brush. Tried applying with my fingers and def didnt like it. After applying you want to wait a little before setting with a powder!!!! Otherwise it ends up looking cakey and gross if a powder is applied right after
