this foundation was the first drugstore foundation i found myself 100% happy with and recommended to everyone i knew as well (lol) i rarely need full coverage; a little goes a long way. this is a very smooth, full coverage w/semi matte finish. the packeging is lovely-very chanel-esque but not very travel friendly. i have not broken out with this, but i do stress the fact of washing out well since it is long wearing! i have worn this up to 8-9 hours with minimal or no touch ups ... i still recommend all my friends to this item as it is a great performing item IMO:)

I used to use this foundation because I was trying to find a cheaper alternative to my bareminerals original foundation. At first it made my skin look great and smooth! After a day of work I was disappointed, It didn't stay on a very long time for me, rubbed off easily, and also left my face with dry patches and the foundation was patchy looking. I felt silly that I'd walked around for who knows how long with my skin looking that way! I tried it again with gently exfoliating my skin and using a finishing powder, but had the same results. Definitely was not a product for me and I wouldn't recommend it.

Great product. I use the caramel colour.

I have oily skin so if the weather plays fair and its not extremely hot, then it lasts the whole day.

I find that my fingers work better in the application process and you don't have to be an expert blender with this foundation.

A little goes a long way because if you apply too much then you look cakey and "too done". I find that the product settles really nicely on your face after about 30 minutes.

A setting powder is not necessary however due to the terrible packaging, maybe carry the compact powder in the same colour when you need a touch up.

HG right here. I loved the liquid version and just recently tried the whipped. It is full coverage and amazing. I am so done wasting me time trying MAC Studio Fix, and MatchMaster. All that high end garbage when this 12$ drugstore foundation blows it out of the water...

Pretty good medium coverage foundation.

Application: You've gotta put in the legwork here. For my dry skin, I need heavy moisturizer plus primer to make this work. I like applying with either my beautyblender or fingers - for some reason, my Real Techniques foundation brush doesn't get along so well with this foundation. Do not attempt to put this on without at least a good moisturizer first unless you want to look like you're wearing a Halloween mask.

Coverage: Medium, buildable, not terribly matte (thankfully). WILL cling to dry spots mercilessly, so make sure you are exfoliated and moisturized!

Wear: Very long lasting. Has not broken me out in the few times I've passed out on my couch out of exhaustion before washing my face. No oxidizing as far as I can tell.

Packaging: DUMB. The glass jar is unnecessarily heavy. due to Revlon trying to package this as a high-end luxe product. Unsanitary. Terrible for traveling. Stop putting stuff in glass jars, Revlon!

For the formula alone, I'd probably buy again. I may consider transferring to an old MAC pump bottle, however.

I usually use high end foundations only. I'm not necessarily a makeup snob, but I've been burned by drugstore foundations too many times. The coverage is horrible, or it rubs off throughout the day, or it breaks my face out or feels cakey....

However, I had heard amazing things about this foundation so I decided to give it a try. I will say this, it is definitely the best drugstore foundation I've tried BY FAR. The coverage is absolutely fantastic, it lasts until I take it off, and it makes my face appear flawless without feeling too heavy or cakey. When I first bought this, I thought I had finally found true love.

But unfortunately there's a little deal breaker here. After wearing this foundation for a week and putting my usual Pur Minerals to rest for a bit, this stuff broke me out. Horribly. I am now covered in acne and it breaks my heart. I know it's from this foundation because I haven't changed anything else about my makeup routine. And I haven't had a trace of acne in 4 years!

It's a shame, I had high hopes for this foundation, but unfortunately it was a huge disappointment. I will not be repurchasing. Unfortunately with foundation, you tend to get what you pay for.

Best foundation ever! I have oily combo skin and it does not make me look oily and it does last the whole day, it's a pleasure to apply and it leaves my skin with a beautiful dewy finish without looking oily a 10/10

Love the nude color, it's really great for my skin. The coverage is fuller but still looks natural to me. The downfall is even with double cleansing this gives me small pimples when I use it. So I only use it occasionally when I need more coverage.

I trashed this lumpy piece after one use. I have extremely oily skin which often breaks out in chemical burns and cystic acne and I thought this would be OK because of the salicylic acid... but no. It oxidized within one hour between my eyes and broke me out terribly. I have tried a few revlon face products but this is the last. I will stick to their lip products.

I thought the creme foundation would be a good match for my skin, which has some dry patches on my cheeks and around my eyes, but it seems to cling to them and make them appear even more flaky and rough. This goes on fairly smooth everywhere else, however, and has a nice silky finish. I have this in ivory, it matches quite well with my fair skin. I apply with my fingers and it blends well. The glass jar is quite nice, and it is easy to get product out of the jar - unless you have longer nails.
