Update August: So now that the hottest weather has come and gone, I have to say that I reached for this many times. To get it to stay put on my nose and chin I dust very lightly w. powder then apply and powder again. This really worked in the heat. For the rest of my face I used a sponge to blend and it actually looked good. My redness didn't show and oil and sweat didn't break through. I am upping my rating especailly since I tried Infallible, EL Double Wear, and Lancome Teint Idol Ultra onloy to be disappointed. Colorstay is actually very good. Original review: Having used Colorstay Stay Natural (discontinued) in the past with good success in the summer months, I purchased Corolstay Lite (newest one in tube) Makeup. It didn't give me nice, flattering coverage and worst of all, it didn't set. Being diappointed, I exchanged it for this formula for normal to dry skin since the formula is actually better suited to an oily T-zone which I sometimes have in the summer but mostly I have normal skin. This foundation disappeared on my nose within half an hour of application and after powdering. The finish was not flattering for my good 40+ skin. For those really hot days I will have to find another brand of long wearing foundation........on goes the hunt!!!

finally found a makeup that is perfect for the summer! it's light coverage, just enough to even out skin tone and this stuff stays on! I wore this make up to the gym and it didn't slide off my face. I would defenitly recommend this for summer and hot weather.

When I first purchased this product I thought that ten dollars was a bit steep but decided to buy it anyway after my friends recommended it to me. The end result is great and it leaves your skin looking flawless and glowing. However, after a few hours it get a bit oily and shiny, even on my dry skin. To combat this problem all I do is put on a little powder in the morning and touch up throughout the day as needed. Overall, it's a great product but I could only give it 4 because I think the texture could be a little less sticky. Also, it dries very quickly, so it sometimes leaves very obvious lines around the jaw and forehead.

PROS: Fragrance free, light & natural finish, good SPF, lasts well.
CONS: Coverage is sheerer than I expected, it's barely even medium. Despite the fact it's marketed at drier skin it does not flatter dry skin at all, accentuates flakies and fine lines. Shades tend towards the pink - I couldn't find a good match for me.
If you can find a shade that matches, want sheer - just less than medium coverage, and have normal (not dry) skin, it could be a goer.
Otherwise, steer clear.
Overall I was disappointed - it didn't suit dry skin and it didn't have good coverage. I was hoping for a foundation that suited dry skin, had good coverage, and lasted well - which it was marketed as. 1 out of 3 isn't good enough.

I love this foundation. It smooths on like silk and dries to a beautiful finish as well. The color I bought is Nude and looks completely natural on the skin. It covers beautifully. I love how this feels throughout the day; it stays on the skin and does not wear off like some do. I do have a little tendancy to be oily in areas but this does not "grease up" my face at all. I love the fact that the SPF is high - that is why I did not choose the other formula in SPF 6 for oily/combo skin. I would definitely try THIS ONE if you are alittle oily in spots. I would definitely purchase this one again!!

I bought the sample size for this in Buff. I actually have combination skin on the oilier side, but I decided against trying the version for combination/oily skin because I'm not a fan of the super matte look and this one had higher SPF coverage (I use a separate sunscreen anyway though). It looks beautiful on - it has a very natural finish and does a great job evening out my skin tone. 9 hours later and I get some oil seepage, but it doesn't look greasy and the foundation itself hasn't faded or darkened. I applied with a latex sponge and had no trouble blending it into my face. For darker acne scars, I had to pat this on a little thicker, blend it in and touch up with concealer. Update: Sadly, after my first day of wearing this, I have noticed a patch of whiteheads on my chin. I tried it again two days later and my skin is not liking it. This is really unfortunate because otherwise, I liked this foundation a lot.

Like many others I used the original and thought it couldn't be beat. I did NOT like the colorstay natural. Looked greasy on me. I am liking this so far. I got a sample first and will probably repurchase the large bottle. We will see if this breaks me out. The coverage is nice. A lot lighter than the original but not sparkly like the natural.It is also pretty easy to remove.

Of all the transfer resistant formulations out there, Revlon leads the pack - low or high end. This is pretty much full coverage, though with careful application it can be medium coverage, too. The n/d formulation IMO would work for normal skin, but may be too drying for very dry skin. This formulation has a higher SPF than the n/o formulation. I prefer the Active Light over all because the coverage is more sheer.

I absolutely LOVED the original colorstay makeup. Have used it for 10 years! I was so upset that they discontinued it. My bottles are nearly gone. I tried the softlex stuff and it broke me out SO badly. I absolutely hated it.

The good news - the color (Buff) works on my fair/medium cool-toned skin and even helps neutralize some of the pink in my skin. However, if you have ANY flakiness to your skin at all this accentuates it 10X - It also does that awful dotty effect on my nose and chin.
I found the consistency hard to work with - It wants to set up right away and won't budge (well it is ColorSTAY so I suppose I should expect that). I have to moisturize and then immediately apply this to be able to work with it.
And my biggest complaint is the packaging - it comes in a glass bottle and it's like trying to get catsup out of a brand new bottle - I have to keep slapping the bottom of the bottle to get any to come out. Why they didn't put this in a squeeze tube or a pump bottle I don't know.
The only time I wear this is if I'm having an exceptionally good skin day (the irony being that on those days I really don't need the coverage...).

This new Colorstay made me breakout. My acne is well under control, I just have scars to cover and the occasional monthy pimples. It doesn't hold up as long as the old one.

This seems like it would be a great product, and it is for a while. Except at the end of the day my chin is a dry/flakey/cakey mess.

This foundation is smooth, creamy, blendable. It's fine for my combination skin. It gives heavier coverage if you first spread it on your face, then tap more on where you need it most. The only problem is it doesn't stay put quite as well as the Oily skin version--whether I use my fingers or a sponge, I end up rubbing some off during application. The Oily skin version has better application and wear.

I have used just about every department store foundation and this is the best!!! I have combo skin and love that it stays on ALL day (no touchups) and is not dry on my skin like Chanel's double perfection.. I use PC's moisturizer under it and love that I am sun protected. Buff color is great..Usually the lower price brands are too orange, pink or red, but not this brand..Since I started using my sunscreen in my foundation, my face is visibly clear...Feels very natural on the face with a sheer medium coverage. Worth a try. I found it at Target on sale for $8.99!!!

I was a user of CS Natural in Sand Beige, my HG.
The new product does not cover nearly as well and
has no depth to it. I felt like I were putting a liquid stain
on my face.
I would not buy again and am so mad to be on the hunt again for a full coverage, transfer resistant foundation that works.

This liquid foundation does a nice job of evening out skin tone, and its finish is only slightly glowy - not glittery. It gives light - medium coverage, and it blends easier than previous ColorStay foundations did. But while it's intended for those with dry skin, it's actually oil-free, so it may require moisturizer underneath for those living in colder winter climates. I will probably like it even more during warm weather, as it doesn't look or feel heavy on my skin, and Revlon's new Ivory shade is very natural-looking and long-overdue.
