I have problems with foundation staying on my face due to very oily skin. My skin is also sensitive and acne prone. I am NC 25 in the winter and NC 35 to 40 in the summer. I do have very strong yellow undertone. I have used the regular colorstay for combination/oily skin and it had stayed on my face fairly well. The only problem I have is that the shades are not yellow enough and it is very mask like.
The whipped foundation is on sale at Rite Aid this week. BOGO 50% off and buy 2 get $4 Rite Aid bucks. There is also $2 off printable coupon on line.
I bought sand beige and warm golden. They are suppose to be yellow toned. Right now it is summer and warm golden is a better match. Sand beige will be great for winter. The only problem is that both are not yellow enough. I mixed a small amount of warm golden with a very tinny tiny amount of turmeric power. The color came out perfect! The foundation looked very natural, like skin. It is not mask like and feels like wearing nothing at all. I can go without blotting for 4 hours. With non-colorstay foundations, I have to blot after 1 hour. I do use a primer.
I read some reviews that the foundation held up with swimming. I went swimming with this foundation on. After an hour in the pool, I still had some makeup on. I wouldn't say it looked freshly applied, just enough that I wasn't shiney. The pool was a salt water pool, maybe salt water removes makeup?
I didn't breakout at all wearing this foundation. I had tried MAC, EL, Laura Mercier and they all broke me out. They do have lots of yellow foundations.
I wish revlon will make their foundations more yellow. When mixing with turmeric powder, be very careful. A little bit goes a long way. It is very yellow and if too much is added, you will look jaundiced. I have also read that a drop of yellow food coloring will work too. I haven't tried mixing with food coloring.
I hope this helps all the yellow skinned gals out there. I will update if there are changes.
update: 8/16/2012. I am currently tanned, NC 37 to 40. Warm Golden is a shade too light. I bought natural tan. Looking at the the foundation in the jar, it looked beige with no yellow. Upon application, it blended in very well and more yellow when it dried. Natural tan is a very good match for the summer! Yay!

1.Lasts a long time
2.At the end of the day the only shine I have is my nose and it's very little
3. enough coverage that I only need to use concealer on my dark circles and I have ALOT of acne and scaring
1. The smell is weird and nasty but after the rest of my routine I cant smell it anymore.
2. The jar is very bulky and hard to get the product out. So its not good for travel
If you can get past the smell this foundation is amazing, I haven't found anything like it and I've worn a lot of drugstore foundations. This and the original CS for combo/oily skin are my HG drugstore foundations. I'll never look for anything else.

First of all, my skin is oily with huge pores. This foundation does a great job of controlling my oil and keeping my skin matte. However, it has a tendacy to emphasize my large pores and make my skin appear older. It settles a bit into my fine lines in my forehead and my smile lines. It dries to a very dry, matte finish and I prefer a more natural and moisturizing look even with my oily skin. Certain areas of my face look awesome with this foundation so I can see the appeal, but it just doesn't work with my pores and forehead. :(
I do like the texture of the foundation. I was immediately attracted to the "whipped" description. It goes on nicely with fingers and I also use a brush to apply. I prefer the brush application... it leaves a more natural and less cakey finish.
The color selection is not great for us warm toned girls. I am about NC35 right now and my closest match is True Beige, which is a bit too pink for my golden skin. Warm Golden is warmer but too light, Early Tan is also warm but a shade too dark. I think mixing Warm Golden and Early Tan would be perfect but honestly I don't like this foundation enough to go that far.
I will keep my jar of this and give it another try or two, perhaps I'll update my review. I will also buy a lighter shade in the winter and try it then.
Overall I think it's a great foundation for the price, definitely worth a try! For those of you lucky enough to have smaller pores I think it could give a great flawless finish for you!

Finally a foundation that covers, stays on and doesn't feel heavy. I put a little on my outer palm then wet a makeup sponge and blend in on my face. This is for summer use. This winter, I'll probably not wet a sponge. Then I set it with ColorStay powder. I never have to retouch all day. That's enough for me.

Best foundation I have ever used - and I have tried A LOT!! It truly feels like silk on my face, and lasts sooo long! And best of all, it controls shine!! That was my major problem before - every other foundation I have tried has made my face oily by noon. With this foundation, I'm not even oily or shiny by 5:00. Granted, I do use a foundation primer, but with other foundations I didn't really see any results with the primer. But now I do! I love the texture and it has great coverage as well. I will be buying this for a long time!!

I'm a fan of Revlon's regular/original Colorstay as far as a cheaper/drugstore foundation so I was excited to try the whipped version. I can remember wearing the original formula is highschool/early college and years later I've come back to it. Usually I'm sand beige in this line (NC20-25) but with it being summer I'm more along the lines of NC30 which translates very well to warm golden. I recently tried L'oreal True Match Lumi which is also a really nice foundation but after purchasing the Revlon Whipped I'm once again reminded that Revlon is just a much better color match for me in that it caters to yellow undertones very well. Consistency feels light when I'm applying (w/ fingers) and a little goes a long way. Coverage is medium and keeps me matte for hours at a time. Very impressed with this new version of one of my favorites. I bought it @ Walmart where it retails for just under $11.

I usually do not buy drugstore foundatiom because they always break down and get greasy so i usually stick to my tarte amazonian clay foundation but i heard about this from a couple of my fav you tubers and i had to try it and i LOVE it. Im nc 15 in mac and i got Buff and its perfect. I put it on with my sigma f80 and its looks amazing. I have normal skin with a shiny t-zone and i dont have to blot or touch up at all! It doesnt feel like you have a face full of make up either iy blends so easily !When i get home at 7 pm it still looks awesome and i touch my face alot. This is a new must have in my makeup collection. I will be re-purchasing.
After wearing this for a week i notice its drying out my skin and making me look flakey and patchy. I am going to stop using it everyday and maybe alternate it with my tarte foundation and only use this one a few times a week and see if it makes a difference

I ordered this online because it's not out in Australia yet, I was very surprised that the colour was a perfect match. Probably the closest match I have ever found in drug store. For reference I am normally an NW20 in mac and my colour in this foundation in Natural beige. This foundation is definitely not as full coverage as the liquid colorstay formulation.
I didn't wear this for 24 hours, I don't know who actually would but it did stay on all day with no touch ups needed. If i had to choose between normal revlon colourstay and the whipped foundation then my heart still belongs to the liquid foundation. It is not a bad foundation I just prefer fuller coverage. I found the best way to apply this was with the beauty blender.

NC 30 and I use Warm Golden. I also tried Natural Beige which also was a good match however, that one is not nearly as yellow based as Warm Golden. this shade is very similar to maybelline smooth mousse in natural beige but slightly lighter than that one which suits my NC 30 better. There is a shade in between called Medium Beige but I didn't try it. A little goes a loooong way! like a dab with my finger is enough for my entire face for medium coverage. very easy to blend, i use my fingers. Right after application, i feel like my complexion looks cakey dry places are still visible, however after maybe 15 minutes, teh foundation settles and my skinn looks realllly nice! very dewy and flawless looking. I do get oily and i do have oily skin so I havve to blot.

I've been using this foundation for around 2 weeks or so. I first bought the shade 220 and it looked a little ashy on me since it has neutral undertones so I ended up getting 320 as well to mix them. I realize they both have a weird undertone to them on my skin (I'm an nc25) I'm very yellow (not Asian but I have Asian skintone) but after I would say 20 minutes it oxidizes on my skin and blends in to exactly my color. I have to set it with a powder because during the summer I'm semi oily. But it's very light weight and only tacky in the beginning and after it feels like skin. I also have to note I have to apply it with my fingers I can't apply it with a brush it makes my pores stand out and doesn't go on my face nice. Fingers is the way to go with this foundation.

At first I bought this in Medium beige since that was the last shade in the display at my drugstore for some reason. It was too light and really neutral toned. I returned it and waited for a sale to get it again in Warm Golden. Warm Golden however doesn't seen as warm as I need and thats the only reason I took one lippie off. The shade range isn't the best with I believe 12 shades (which isn't too bad either for drugstore shade ranges). I mainly have normal skin everywhere besides the sides of my nose which are very dry and usually foundation emphasizes it soooooo much, but this product didn't really emphasize it as much as I was expecting. It glided over the lines and didn't settle. I et very slightly oily on my T-zone at the end of the day but wow, when I got home and saw my face, I was surprised at how well this controlled oil! The jar is very heavy which is why I gave a 3 for packaging but I understand that it has to be in a jar because of the consistency, but why such a heavy jar?! I recommend scooping some out with a spatula or clean finger and then blending it in with your fingers! Using your fingers versus the brush really melts this product into your skin and makes it look pretty natural. I say give it a try especially on a good sale like the 40% off Rite aid has been doing a ton on Revlon, and if you don't like it, they have a great return policy!

I have oily, acne-prone skin. My skin was pretty clear before using this, I used this foundation for two days and broke out all over my chin and jaw line. I will not be using this product again.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair, Neutral Hair: Blond, Straight, Medium Eyes: Green
I generally like this product. It has nice medium but buildable to full coverage. It isn't really 'whipped' feeling. It's a bit heavier than that. It has the consistency of softened ice cream, it's kind of cool.
I don't know my MAC foundation color for reference because their foundations don't appeal to me. I'm usually in the light sector of skin tones, but not fair. I have slight pink undertones but not too much. I have the shades Buff and Sand Beige. To start, these two shades both have a slight gray tinge to them. I'm not sure how to describe it but they have a little gray cast. It isn't noticeable once buffed into the skin but noteworthy. I have applied with a stippling brush, a buffing brush and also my fingers. I prefer clean fingers because it gives the most natural finish.
Sand Beige is a bit dark for me but it works because I have a tan right now however as the year goes on, I will need to switch to Buff or possible lighter.
It gives a nice, semi-matte finish and doesn't include sparkle like the Revlon Photoready products do. I think the packaging is simple and pretty however impractical. It's housed in a glass jar which is very heavy and distorts the color so shade selection can be difficult because soon all the shades start to look the same. Since the jar is so big and clunky, I don't like to travel with it and it is often left at home.
I took off a lippie because the combination of the packaging, trying to figure out the shade you need and the price. I paid almost $11 USD which is what I think a bit much for a drugstore foundation but it works. Staying power is pretty good, but due to my oily skin, I still need a little touch up with blotting sheets and powder by the afternoon if I put it on in the morning.

EDIT 2/2/13: recently tried this again and sorry it just does not look natural no matter how i try it. le sigh. worth a try though.
EDIT 8/24: this broke me out and i am in no way acne prone. i wore this to a dinner party and woke up with 2 fresh pimples ugh.
EDIT 8/8: i wore this to a wedding with my mac msfn on top and it looked fabulous in photos. i don't need full coverage every day but for that time of the month or for a random break out or something i will definitely be reaching for this!!
oh crap. another foundation that i really like. this is a quick first impression review...it's definitely medium-full coverage and i applied it with fingers. nc30/5 and 320 warm golden was the way to go. i went to four stores before i found this color though. got it at walmart with a $3coupon so it ended up being around 7$ for me. doesn't feel as if i was wearing a mask like how the original liquid colorstay is.
the reason why i'm writing a quick review is to let people know...this is awesome as an undereye concealer. i used it with my mac f&b and it covers completely..way better than thebalm concealer, benefit erase paste, or my laura geller real deal concealer (though i love this one for discolored spots and blemishes). heard that this photographs well and i'm excited to try it out for a wedding i'm attending. finish is a little too matte for my liking so i follow up with mac MSFN which gives a more glowy look.

i was in love with this when i first bought it, i have been wanting to try revlon colorstay for a long time but i really dont like liquid foundations without a pump, i had seen a lot of grea reviews on here and decided i must try this, kinda high price for ds foundation, im not really a fan of jars i have to stick my fingers in, but the real problem for me with this was you have to apply it very very sheer or it looks cakey, at least in my experience, i will keep it and use it if i need a full coverage look or maybe as concealer, but i wont be wearing it as my reg foundation and will def not repurchase
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Tan Hair: Black, Curly Eyes: Brown
I really didn't like this. I have acne-prone, combination skin and I feel like this just sat on my skin, I felt kind of heavy. As a reference point I really love the texture of Maybelline's Dream Matte Mousse, I still use it because I haven't found anything else I like so far but I'm not crazy about it- it's just bearable. I exchanged this because of the color several times too. Not for me

I got this foundation in the color "Caramel" from Target for about $11.99. It's very lightweight, doesn't have a strong smell like the Colorstay liquid foundation has and the texture is amazing. I would love if this foundation came in a pump but overall I would definitely repurchase this!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair, Warm Hair: Brunette Eyes: Hazel
Love this foundation! It's super creamy and light and a dream to apply. I bought the lightest color (I'm an NC15) and it looks great! Plus the packaging is pretty cute. Will definitely repurchase.

I resisted for awhile but I always knew I was going to get this. I had been using the original Colorstay (in Ivory) since my True Match (N1) was a almost gone & a bit too light in tone for my summer.... tan. lol. I heard that the Colorstay Whipped was a bit less pink which is a plus. I didn't notice a huge difference in a swatch comparison but it seems like a slightly better match.
This applies wonderfully, like a silicone primer. So smooth. I prefer to apply only to areas where I need it (around nose, chin & eyes). This looks great, like I'm not even wearing makeup.
I would def get this again, although it might be too dark for my insanely pasty winter skin.

Spotted this on a trip to the US (I live in Vancouver) and the colour selection varied depending on which drugstore I went to...odd seeing that it is a permanent product and not LE. One would assume that retailers would consider carrying the whole shade range rather than a handful.
Anyway, I purchased this in two shades to mix together---Sand Beige and Warm Golden. My best match in Revlon colorstay liquid (combo oily) is a mix of Sand Beige and Golden Beige, thus the reason I purchased two shades in the whipped formula. I find sand beige to lack some of the yellow undertones, just as it does in the liquid version while Warm Golden is too dark for me, so a mix of the two shades is my perfect NC25 shade.
The formula reminds me of cool whip or some sort of frozen dessert topping but deflates upon application and melts beautifully on the skin. This blends like a dream, although it can feel a touch heavy if applied heavily. I haven't tested the 24hr claim and don't plan to, but it did last a good 8 hours with just a tad of shine coming through on my tzone.
The coverage is medium and could possibly be heavier if layered, but again, that lightweight feeling will disappear (at least for me it feels that way). I would recommend applying your concealer first, then applying your foundation, as the foundation dries to a powdery finish. I felt as though applying any cream/liquid type product on top made that area I was trying to conceal look a touch cakey.
This was priced between $11.99 - 13.99 USD depending on which drugstore I went to, but I purchased this on sale for $8/ea. I don't care for the bulky packaging but then again, I don't plan on taking this with me on a daily basis anywhere. The packaging is misleading as it appears like a lot but for the price this is quite expensive as you only receive .9fl oz.
I probably won't repurhcase this in Canada, as I'm sure it will be outrageously overpriced at around $17.99 (like most of Revlon's foundations).
