"Specially formulated for normal or dry skin, this oil-free, moisture-balanced formula gives you flawless looking skin. "--Revlon
I have extremely dry skin, especially in the winter. Although it says I have combination skin, I'm more on the dry side.
The oily/combination skin formula was /less/ dry than this one. Yet this one says its meant for people /with/ dry skin. Since I've been using the oily/comb. and loved it. I figured this would be 10X better because its meant for dry skin. I was wrong, this made my skin worse, it became so flakey and dull when I applied it. The application process was also irritating, the foundation dried way too fast and it felt too heavy on my skin.
This does have a nice variety of colors though... that's all the good I can say. I found that the Ivory is a bit TOO white, especially for someone fair with pink undertones.
Overall, I think you can get better with the money you're paying.

I absolutely luv this i have used this for the past 3 years and no other foundation matches my skin tone or lasts as long as this one. My skin is somewhat uneven and this gives me a clean canvas without looking cakey. I use a paddle brush for extra coverage when i need it but mostly just use my fingers for a sheer everyday finish, either way it looks good. Living in a tropical climate, it is hot year round and this foundation stays put, and it feels very light. My shade is 400 caramel and it matches even when i stay indoors and lighten up a couple shades. This is my holy grail of foundation, a mainstay.
PS. I did not give this a five because i think this really needs a pump, it is a bit messy and quite inconvenient without a pump.

I have very very oily skin, and I like this formula way better than the oily skin formula. This one lasts a long time and controls my oil well, but doesn't look cakey and fake looking like the oily formula. The oily one also breaks me out (and I do a really careful job removing makeup every night) but my skin is fine with this. The coverage is medium while the oily formula is full coverage, but that's ok with me because you can layer it. Like everyone else I wish it came with a pump, but that's ok, I'm used to it :-) There are other foundations that last a little bit longer on my skin but when I feel like wearing something different for the day I like to have this handy.

I have worn this product for over a year and love it. Never thought I would buy a drugstore foundation but I am extremely happy with it. I am early fifities, live in Atlanta (humid) - motorcycle (wind and sun)and have fair skin. It gives me great coverage (covers age spots) that stays on all day and has good sun coverage. ( I do use a Moisturizer with SP15 under it). In the summer I do have to buy two shades and mix my own color - but it is so cheap I don't mind!

I love it so far although I have only been wearing for a little less than a week. Like others I wish it had a pump design but other than that thats the only con I can think of. I purchased it at CVS and I had 3 coupons for it 2 Revlons one for $3 off and one for $6 off and I also had $6 in extra bucks so I walked out with a free product! I'm sure this won't happen everytime but free is free so I won't complain especially when this is $14.00 orginally.
Anyways back to the foundation; it has a great wear it lasts me all day and I have oily combination skin and probably should have picked up the one formulated for oily combo skin but did not recognize I had grabbed one for Normal dry but so far I haven't had any issues. It's not sticky it drys matte no shine like photoready (although I do like photoready as well).

This foundation is a dream. It lasts all day, stays put, and does not wipe off onto clothing. I've been using this for 8 years and I can't say enough good things about the coverage. I love how it feels, and the matte finished look. The only flaw that I can see is that some of the lighter shades don't match my skin tone very well. The shade I'm using (Sand Beige) gives off a grey tint, but I'm sure that's because of the titanium dioxide/zinc oxide for the spf. Other than that, this can't be beat for the price!

A really good foundation. I feel like it dries quite fast though so id put it on and work it in as fast as possible. I hate the fact it has no pump though!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Normal, Fair Hair: Red, Curly, Fine Eyes: Blue
This makes my skin look awesome! I typically wear tinted moisturizer, but wear this when I want to look more done up. The only thing that could make it better would be if it came in a pump.

The best foundation ever. Edit: uh no, I was so wrong. Not the best. That title is now and forever bestowed on Estee Lauder Total Camouflage Makeup for Face and Body. Knocked off 2 lippies.

I really like this foundation!
I bought it during my search for the perfect concealer (which still continues...). I bought revlon colorstay concealer and was impressed by the staying power so decided to try this foundation.
I got Sand Beige (180) and was not disappointed! I have no issue with application - I use moisturiser and primer underneath and it glides on perfectly, a bit of powder dabbed over it & and stays in place all day (I do use Mac Fix + as well, but doubt it's really necessary). I would say it has medium to full coverage (I need to dab it twice on my nose, which is usually quite red)). It's a good colourmatch for me, and I shall definitely stick with it. (just need to find the perfect concealer now - unfortunately colorstay concealer was not it).
Just wanted to add because some people had problems with breaking out - I always clean thoroughly with cold cream, but my nose did come out in red bumps the first couple of days of using this. As I wasn't sure it was the foundation I continued and it settled after less than a week of using it daily. I've had no issues since.

Waited way too long to try this foundation.It's amazing on the skin.Blends right in with ease.Yes,I had to try 3 different shades,but finally found the right shade =) Will continue to buy this product.

I have a love hate relationship with this foundation. I love the texture and overall look it gives my skin--very smooth and even, doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup at all! But I abhor the SPF 15, I am golden tan (yellow undertones) and flash photography with this foundation makes my face look white/pale and ashy. The packaging sucks but its not unbearable. I think my shade may have gotten a shade too light, I have 250 fresh beige(?) and should probably get 300 golden beige.

Best foundation I've ever tried.
Not caky at all.
Stays on for a long time.
I'm not going to buy this again, cause I'm using no foundation anymore. But if I'd have to, this one would definitely have to be my choice.

I usually wear MAC NC20 studio fix ( both liquid and powder ) but I heard that this product gives you the same results for a lower price so I thought I would try it out just to see if what people were saying was in fact true They have some variety in shades Ill give them that, but most of the shades all look the same. The thing about this product is if you dont know how to apply your foundation correctly its going to look oh so bad on you. It dries very fast so you need to stipple it on pretty fast. It has a really strong smell to it. The best way to describe it is that it smells like makeup. When I applied it and went to hug my boyfriend he immedietly smelled my face and asked what the heck I did to it. The coverage is comparable to MAC studio fix foundations. Its not as good but it does come close. However I feel that MAC does last longer. Overall if your budget friendly and dont want to pay 25 for MAC then this is your next option. As for myself I'll stick to MAC. I think its worth it.

When they say "colorstay" they aren't joking around!! You definitely have to use a very good makeup remover or, in my case, olive oil and a warm washcloth before you can even try washing it off. If you're looking for staying power, this stuff has held up in even the most challenging makeup situations.
As far as the quality, I was less than impressed. I like that it gives medium to full coverage because, let's face it, we all have our bad days. My skin is usually on the dryer side, but I use a heavy moisturizer with high spf every day so I didn't expect the caking that I saw. I was def not heavy handed in my application either, and always use a sponge. It was usually on my marionette lines and all of those pleasant little wrinkles that start to show in your 30s. If your skin is flaky AT ALL it magnifies it.
Overall, this is a decent makeup if you apply it lightly mixed in with a moisturizer to tint it. If you have smooth skin you have no worries... but then again you wouldn't need a heavier coverage makeup I guess. I might wear it out for a night on the town so I won't have to check for sliding, but buyer beware - after a 9 hour shift at work you will have a strong urge to exfoliate the heck out of your face!!!

My sister accidentally left this in my room so I decided to try it, seeing as everyone raves about Revlon Colourstay. So I have oily skin but the formula was for normal to dry skin. So I figured it might make my skin look oilier. I didn't really care because I wasn't going anywhere anyway. So I put it on and it was HORRIBLE. It's supposed to be for dry skin yet it made my oily skin look extremely dry! There was hardly any coverage, it didn't blend well and it made my whole skin look extremely flaky. If I have oily skin, then imagine it on someone who already has dry skin! =/

I guess the ColorStay for oily skin has more cover than this - I got a light-to-medium coverage and need more to cover my acne scars and broken capillaries.
Didn't settle into my pores, at least.

It's wonderful at first... that slowly becomes horrid...
First day I got it I applied it with a wet sponge very carefully in thin layers and it gave a beautiful finish....
BUT two hours later my face felt like it was about to rip in half! I have drier-than-dry skin in the winter and oily in the summer so i thought since this came in two formulas it would be wonderful. This was just too drying, even though i used a heavy moisturizer before hand.
Then a week later i started getting lazy with application, and tried using my fingers. I usually get the best finish with my fingers, but with this foundation i ended up looking like a cakey mess.
The final week i stuck with it, I accidentally dropped the bottle and the foundation started leaking into the cap.
Not to mention it ran last time I wore it in the rain and got on my scarf =(
I think if you are a very precise person that likes to take time with make up (and not a clutz XD) this would be really nice looking for special occasions. But I would NOT recommend this to most people.

I have recently just started on a course of accutane, and I am aware that my skin will soon get very dry, I thought I would give this foundation a go! I really like it. i use it in IVORY and find that it matches my pale skin well and looks natural.
The only thing I wasnt fully happy with was the fact that it could have more coverage. Maybe it's just because my skin is fairly covered in blemishes and lumps. I suppose I should set it with a poweder too really but I dont really want to use a powder for fear of breakingout more.
A soft tube would work better for the packaging, but I love everythign else about the product! I will repurchase

I've searched high and low for a decent foundtion when I decided to give this brand a try. I'm matched to NW25 (which looks too peachy and I've been told I'm neutral to warm by others, still haven't figured out the MAC fdtn philosophy). I ended up buying Sand Beige. It doesn't have a pink or peachy undertone to it. I think it matches perfectly although now I'm self tanning so I may eventually go slightly darker.
I hated this product at first. I tried blending it with a foundation brush and a sephora airbrush. What works for me... applying a small amount on my cheek and stippling it in with a damp sponge, then move onto another area. The reason why is this foundation dries fast so this method seems to work, blends into my skin nicely, don't look made up.
I have combination and sensitive skin. Dry cheeks, slightly oily tzone. Winter is havoc on my dry cheeks so I decided to go with the dry skin formula. My tzone rarely breaks out but I do tend to apply powder twice to my tzone during the day which is no biggy.
I've only used this product for three days and I hope there won't be any breakouts.
I payed around $18-19.00 Canadian for this product.
My only CON with this product it doesn't come with a pump. So you have to be careful how you pore this product out.
Edited: I dislike this product! I found it a bit thick and greasy after 3-4 hours. I broke out around my chin. Even though I try different application methods including less product I still found it thick, greasy. I will not repurchase. Too bad it didn't work for me because the color Sand Beige seemed to match my skin well.
Here's hoping my skin doesn't break out and if it doesn't this will probably be my hg drugstore foundation.
