I used this about 4 years ago when I was living in Southern California. Worked really well at keeping my skin from looking dry and flaky but without making me look greasy. I didn't know anything about setting powders back in the day so I can imagine it would have lasted longer if I had used one - but this looked pretty without it for my young skin. It is really creamy and I really like the mousse texture - very easy to blend and looks natural once you do. Good product for beginners and experts alike, looks great in pictures too. Perhaps not an everyday foundation but I liked it when I used it.

It's pretty good. Improves the look of my skin and matches light cool toned skin perfect- neutralizes redness and that. My only complaint is that 1) it can begin to feel heavy throughout the day and 2) it cakes in dry skin really bad and looks awful.

I love this product. I have been using Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse Liquid foundation for about 6 months when I decided on the spur of the moment to try this foundation and I was ecstatic with my results. I love the feeling of the mousse on my fingers and when I blend it into my face (yes with my hands i find it works well) it makes my skin silky smooth to the touch and has great coverage that covers almost all flaws without looking cakey. Only bad thing is the Porcelain Ivory which I chose is a bit dark for my complexion but not too awful.

I had this awhile back and LOST it, i only got to use it like 5-6 times, it was so nice and matte looking, very smooth and I needed solittle, i plan on buying again, I did use a brush though because i don't like sticking my fingers in stuff like this that is just an open pot.

I've been using this foundation for about a year now, and I really like it. I really like natural looking makeup: I will do dramatic eyes and lips every now and then, but most of the time I just like to look pulled together but not made up. I really like this foundation because it's light enough to get good coverage, but it still lets my freckles show through and I feel like my skin can breathe in it. I use the mousse concealer for any major blemishes as the foundation doesn't cover those as well. There are a lot of colors to choose from, and I've found that the 1 works well in winter and the 3 works well in summer (I'm very fair with cool pink undertones). The only problem I've noticed with this is that it can cake on dry spots or zits, but if you moisturize beforehand and blend well (pat rather than rub it in), this isn't too much of a problem. I have dry patches and oily patches on my skin, and this foundation handles them both pretty well, although I still use powder and blotting tissue when I need it. I've tried a bunch of different foundations including LM's tinted moisturizer (not enough coverage), EL's double wear light (too much coverage and no good color match), L'Oreal's Tru-Blend (a little mask-like and no good colors), and this is the one I've stuck with so far because it has just the right amount of coverage and breathability at a great price.

I really like this stuff! It is by no means full coverage but with a good concealer and primer it does the job. I think it looks very natural. I wear the light nude and I apply it with my MAC studio fix sponge. It doesn't have great lasting power and if you don't dust powder over it you will get oily but it doesn't break me out which I really thought it would and I like how it feels on my face.
UPDATE: this finally did break me out :( in small bumbs alll over my forehead even tho I was careful to always clean my sponge after uses and everything. I found a new foundation by palladio called wet/dry foundation and I love it, so check that out!!!

Yuck! Where to begin? I liked this foundation ok at first...I bought the lightest shade and it was still too dark, but it blended nicely and was matte and polished. But it never felt like it set, it just got greasier and heavier as the day wore on. Nevertheless, I persisted, and wore it most days for two or three weeks. By the end of that time my pores were rough and clogged, I had weird circular dry patches on my cheeks, and I had a dream that it was dissolving my skin off. I am going back to ColorStay.

I tried this in Classic Ivory (Light 2) and I wore this every day for the better part of 6 months. At first I was thrilled simply because I was able to find a color match in a drug store brand foundation. I also really liked the way it felt on my skin. However, after a while of using it I noticed a couple of things that really bummed me out.
Firstly I started to find hard clumpy things in the pot. What were they...dried out foundation? bacteria? foreign debris? I don't know but it was gross and I realize that dipping my fingers into this pot every day for months isn't that hygenic.
Secondly I started to realize that this foundation was never sinking into my skin. The foundation lays on top and it was pretty obvious, especially on my nose. where the oil would cause it to drift and move around.
Anyways, I won't be repurchasing.
