I usually use revlon colorstay in buff but I wanted to try a different brand of long-wearing makeup to see it there was something I liked better out there. I didn't like the color choices. I got the lightest one and it was too light and the buff color looked too yellow in the store. The coverage was medium and not very easy to build. I found it a lot harder to blend than my revlon, but after it settled it had a nicer finish and looked more natural. When I washed it off at the end of the day my skin was really smooth, like it had been mousturizing all day. I don't think I will be buying this again though.

I wasn't expecting to like this for some reason, but it was BOGOF at Walgreens so I gave it a shot. Well, I got Honey and Tan, and Tan actually matches my NC42 skin. Good coverage, but it's not matte so I have to use a powder over it. But it lasts almost all day for me. Good stuff.

Ok, this is my first time posting on here, I read alot of reviews on products I'm thinking of buying . I bought this last night and used it this morning. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it went on, and made my skin look very fresh. I have oily skin through the T-zone area. I use a damp round sponge to apply it, and it goes on really well, then i use a sheer powder over it. So far, i love this foundation. It stayed on all day. I too was a AL user, and was very disappointed when they discontined this product. But so far i love this foundation!

OK I just started wearing this foundation as I found it last night. So I might change my review but my initial reaction is this: It is a pretty decent substitute for Almay Amazing Lasting but it's not quite on AL's level. The coverage is pretty good, I'd say Medium coverage and it covered alot of my redness. The texture was a bit more thick than AL...goopy almost and it dried super fast so you had to blend quickly. It lasted for alot of the day. Put it on at 11am and it's now 7:45pm and it's still on pretty well. None of Almays products has ever made me break out so it's a pretty good bet that this one won't either. Overall a good foundation for the price, and actually better than most higher priced ones.
***updated***I've been using this product now for a few weeks and I think my initial review holds true. Overall good foundation, not quite on AL's level. Great color selection for those ladies who HATE to look orange or pink because it has more yellow-neutral undertones. My actual skin has slight pink undertones, but when you get a foundation that has ANY pink or orange undertones, a few hours after application that's the only color you'll see. It's on the same level as the Clear Complexion Makeup Almay has.

I was a devoted fan of Amazing Lasting Foundation and then it got discontinued, which really made me angry at Almay --- so I decided to not use their products for such a long time, until one day... I am at Target and I see, "TRULY LASTING COLOR" by Almay --- I am immediately taken back and just have to buy it and try it to see if it is like the discontinued version of Amazing Lasting. SO, I scooped it up in "Naked" and zoomed to the checkout.
WELL, it is not the same. The pump is WONDERFUL, a much needed upgrade to the old bottle, but overall, I was pretty disappointed that the new formula just doesn't hold as well and is, I think, sheerer than Amazing Lasting. Unfortunately, I think I wasted my time and money on TLC and won't be buying it again. I think Almay had it right with the first formula... minus the smell it had, but this one just won't be in my make-up collection in the future.
It's too bad, I really loved Almay before, but I am not a fan now.

I love this! Amazing Lasting was my fav, but this is a good substitute! Blended well, good colors, lasted all day!

Love this. Colors are great. Comes in a pump and blends like a dream. Will buy again.

I've been using BE which I love but I am so tired of the mess it makes. I picked up a bottle of the TLC on a whim because it was Almay and I remembered using an Almay Fdn in the past which didn't break me out (like all REvlon Fdn's do). Anyhow, I am really surprised with how much I love this. It doens't have the texture of other long wearing foundations which go "cakey" on me. This stays really dewy and the finish is very pretty. I do have really dry skin so this may be too much for oily skinned gals. After a couple of days I realized the Beige shade was a tad light for me so I bough Sand and mix them - perfect! (I'm and NC30).

I bought this foundation this week with the hopes that it was similar to Amazing Lasting foundation that was d/c. I have very oily skin by the way. I didn't have trouble applying but it seemed too oily for me. I had to apply loose powder on top so it wouldn't be shiny. By the end of the day I looked tired. I will soon be 40 and I guess it settled into the areas I don't need it to settle in. May work for someone with dry skin better or someone younger. I just do not care for it.

Oh I like this product, but I did not care for the amazing lasting foundation . Just goes to show you how personal foundation is. I think it is very easy to spread with a beautiful finish. Normally I hate long wearing foundations-even Dior's new one looked so unnatural . This lasts all day and you don't have to use a chisel to remove it. I have used it every day for 2 weeks and no breakouts. I love the pump bottle too. Hooray Almay! Now lets keep it around a while. This line likes to change a lot.

I wanted to cry when Almay discontinued their Amazing Lasting foundation. It was one of my top 3 favorites of all-time. So when I came across their new offering, TLC, promising 16 hour wear, I was all over it. I picked it up today for $12 and change. I got it in buff, which is a decent, if not slightly light, match for my light-medium neutral skin. And normally, I wouldn't review a foundation after wearing it just once. But I'm pretty sure my opinion of this won't change over time.
It comes in a nice, rather slim glass bottle with a pump, which I know is a huge plus for a lot of gals. But I took out the pump to get the product on my foundation brush. You know how when you dip a spoon into a jar of marshmallow cream, then you pull it back out and there's strings of cream between the spoon and the jar? And it just kind of slowly streams down and you have to twirl the spoon to get it to stop? That's what this foundation did when I pulled the pump out. This foundation is incredibly thick and goopy. I did try using the pump, and the stuff came out okay, but I really wonder if that would be the case a few weeks or months from now. I would think all that goop would eventually stop up the pump.
Not surprisingly with a foundation this thick, it is very hard to spread on the face. I found that I had to work with small amounts at a time, and work very quickly, to apply this evenly. Perhaps it would be easier with a damp sponge? I'll tell you what did surprise me: you would think that a foundation this thick would give excellent covergae, but I found that to NOT be the case. This gave me light-medium coverage, at best. It evened out my skintone, but did nothing to cover a couple of zits I have right now, and not much more for a little spot of discoloration and some old acne scars. It did help with the look of my pores, so that's good. The finish is a natural matte, but it didn't look very natural. I thought that maybe after a while it would melt into my skin and look better. A dusting of powder, and I was ready...if not completely thrilled.
As for the wear...I applied this at about 5:30 this afternoon. It is now 10:30. I am shiny through my t-zone, and my flaws as obvious as ever. The foundation never really seemed to melt into my skin, still looking unnatural. It's still there, but it didn't hold my concealer much at all.
So the bottom line is that, obviously, I'm not a fan of this makeup. Perhaps someone with better skin than I have...normal/slightly dry/slightly oily, few flaws...might like it. But given the texture, I would have to think there's something else out there that would work just as well that's not so hard to work with.
BRING BACK AMAZING LASTING!!!!!
