The only reason I continue to wear this as my everyday foundation is that its the longest wearing foundation with good coverage as far as drugstore goes (not too big of a fan of drugstore foundation). Its probably my favorite drugstore foundation (combo/oily skin version fyi) I just don't really like the finish and i dont like how it wears that much. I've been wearing it for 8 months now, used to apply it with my hands but looks and last much better when applied with a brush, a flat top brush per say.
Again, apply it with a flat top brush, it looks a lot better. But still, am not satisfied with the finish. I feel as if it makes my skin look kinda dull, a little dry and almost powdery? It can get cakey, or streaky if you don't apply it right. It drys really fast too so it can be hard to work with. With the right technique it can look pretty good though. It has good coverage but I wish it covered a little more. Looks better when your oils break in.
Longest wearing drugstore foundation in my opinion, lasts me about 9 hours before it starts to look weird, and about 16 hours before it really starts coming off. Decent at controlling oil but it can smear & its not transfer resistant. Its oxidation factor is ridiculous though, it can make you look pretty orange after a couple hours.
Overall, i'll use it as more of an everyday foundation to save money but once I get my Ester Lauder double wear it'll be hard to use this. Best drugstore foundation but not HG.

After years of wearing Estee Lauder Double Wear and loving it I decided to try Colorstay. Well I'm never going back to Estee Lauder. Corlorstay feels better on my skin, doesn't get as cakey and really stays put. I have a lot of age spots and this covers them very well but also makes my skin look moisturized. So happy I tried this!! Love it!

First of all, there's not pump. That's one huge pet peeve for me. They have a wide color range, too bad there wasn't my color. The color is either too light or too orange, couldn't find the perfect match without looking like an oompa loompa!

i like this product for work or evening- a nice light shade, wears well, and smells good.

good coverage but hard to find a match...ive tried 3 different shades already and still havent found my match. doesn't include a pump. i have very sensitive and pimple prone skin and this made me break out.

I love this foundation. It's my go to foundation for work. It gives me great coverage and lasts throughout my whole work day. I work 8 to 10 hours a day by the way. It's a medium coverage, build able foundation and at first it feels kinda thick on your skin...but once it sets its amazing. If it had a pump I'd be even more in love. I've tried a lot of foundations but every path has led me right back here.

It's an okay product and it gives good coverage BUT it dries out my skin 30 minutes after I apply it. I also have to set it with tons of powder for it to actually "stay" and if I use too much powder my skin turns orange! I'm not very pleased with this product.

I really like this foundation. I started to use MAC studio but found it was gone within a few hours and is quiet pricey so i expect a good product. a few of my friends used this and raved about it so a got one for my own and the color matches me perfectly have not found one that matches me as well. lasts all day am really happy with this product, is medium coverage and if i have an area that needs more i just do another layer. ALL of my friends now only use this product and i am hooked to this one :D

Over the years I've learned that foundations can only do so much of the work when it comes to creating a flawless face. This foundation is definitely a foundation that needs to be played around with in order for it to work for you. I've tried multiple ways of applying and I was pretty satisfied with the coverage and staying power of this foundation via a flat top kabuki brush. The one thing that bothered me the most was the unnatural cakey finish I would get.
I found that the best way to apply Revlon CS is with a damp sponge (the cheap wedges that you can get from drugstores for $2 for a pack of 30). Sure it sheers it out a little, but layers can be built upon each layer easily and you avoid getting a cakey mess. Another benefit is that with this application method it looks NATURAL and you still get that same long wearing foundation that CS is all about.
Trust me. Try this method. It will not disappoint.

I was so excited to try this product, but so disappointed!
It literally felt like I was rubbing clay on my face. This feeling was further carried out when the product dried: it was caky, hard, and felt like I'd had Botox injections (I felt restricted when I smiled, raised my eyebrows, etc.).
My skin was quite oily at the time I tried this product, so I ended up putting some powder over top. Not a good idea.
If I touched my face, the powder and foundation would both transfer onto my finger, and leave a horrendous white smear surrounded by a stale Dorito-like mask.
This product looked far too orange on me. I even bought the lightest shade.
I realize it's hard to buy a good, matching foundation for a cooler skin tone, but this product was a little ridiculous.
The smell was also unbearable for me.
I see a lot of people have written very positive reviews for this product, so now I'm wondering if perhaps I had bought a faulty product.
Nevertheless, I won't be buying this again.
