I am probably the only person that hates this product. It is so thick and literally makes my skin feel like I really am wearing a mask. Its so heavy, and its understandable because its thick coverage, but this product honestly didn't even stay on my skin WITH moisturized skin and a primer. It caked up on my t-zone and Its just not my favorite because I do not like the finish. It just looks like makeup to me. I apply it in different ways and it just doesn't stay on my face and it looks bad.
I really like dewey natural looking foundations that cover yet give you a glow, so Im definitely still looking for one!

love this foundation! very comparable to MAC's studio fix fluid. It's a buildable medium to full coverage which is a definite plus! works best for normal to oily skin. Longevity is also decent although I do notice that I still get oily after a few hours of wearing it. best to set it with a light powder after product is applied to minimize touch-ups. I would definitely recommend this product and continue using it in the future.
PROS: great coverage
-best for normal to oily skin
-gives you a natural matte finish
-comparable to high end foundations for a much cheaper price.
CONS: Longevity is average. still had to touch up throughout the day
-color selection is not the greatest. It took me a while to find a color that matched my skin tone.
-use blotting sheets instead of powder to prevent your face from getting too cakey.

This is a great foundation to have! I don't really need full coverage with having okay skin but I like having coverage for those bad skin days. I agree with the idea of putting a pump on this, but it's not one of the worst bottles for pouring out foundation. It's not THAT liquidy so it easily pours out. Great skin tone color collection. I have light skin, but I'm shade 200 nude. The colors DO range from pink to yellow undertones, always a great plus! If you have normal skin, the combination still does work! I thought it would dry out my skin, but it actually helps with my slight oiliness. The powder is great as well without looking or feeling cakey, though this DOES look heavier than it feels. NO smell and works with or without flash. Great Job Revlon! I highly recommend anyone to try this!

I need a foundation with alot of coverage and this really works well for me. I use Buff Chamois and it matches my complexion perfectly. I see alot of negative reviews due to the packaging, as it has no pump. I just dip a clean q tip in the bottle and get it out that way, my fingers never touch the lid.
Maybelline Fit me pressed powder in Cameo goes very well with this foundation!

Decided to try out this foundation after seeing so many good reviews on it. I didn't really like it. I'm pretty pale, and I got the Natural Beige color (lightest color they had at Target, didn't see any of the lighter ones there). Once it was on my face it looked much darker and made me look kind of orange. Maybe a lighter shade would work better but it still looked very cakey and heavy even though I didn't use a lot.
-Very matte finish. Not greasy at all, which I did like.
-The packaging, as others have said
-Made me look cakey, settled into my pores. Didn't use a primer with it though
-Didn't match my skin tone
Overall I was really disappointed. I don't think I would get this again.

When I need a readily-available, competitively-priced and long-wearing foundation with better-than-average coverage and a better-than-average color selection, Revlon ColorStay Makeup is what I turn to. In my search for a long-wearing liquid foundation that just wouldn't budge, oxidize or turn to an oil slick, I started off with Estee Lauder Double Wear Light. I switched to Revlon's ColorStay foundation because it sets better, smudging and transferring less, while also feeling lighter and wearing roughly as long.
Although it's a close runner up, I wouldn't call Revlon ColorStay makeup my HG foundation. A couple of years back, I found my HG in Physician's Formula CoverToxTen50 Liquid Foundation, in the shade "Creamy Natural" (once I learned to ditch the ineffective brush-on applicator). The reason I liked PF's formula better is that it did a better job imparting a corrective "healthy glow" skin tone. PF's formula, which apparently has recently been discontinued, felt somewhat lighter, more breathable and less drying. Wearing ColorStay I definitely feel that make-up look, although nowhere near as bad as the Estee Lauder Double Wear Foundation, which bordered on mask-like. IMHO, however, PF's CoverToxTen50 formula did one step better, allowing me to forget that I was wearing makeup at all. While I am sad to learn that my HG Physician's Formula foundation has seemingly been discontinued — it's currently impossible to find anywhere online or off — Revlon ColorStay is still around. It's a huge relief to know that there are still quality drugstore-brand foundations to be found in just about any store, thanks to Revlon ColorStay Makeup!

I would recommend this foundation if you have problem skin. Such as acne, uneven skin tone, scars, etc. for me this is just too heavy and cakey. I'm at the point where less is more for me. I do like the the fact that this foundation is very long lasting. Great coverage. I just prefer a more natural coverage. The price is great and it's comparable to any high end foundations out there. If you prefer to look more natural this will not work for you. Also doesn't work well on oily skin. I have very oily skin and this only exaggerated it. Also the packaging is disappointing, I think a pump is the only way to go. Hope this was helpful :)

Generally, I would say this is a pretty great foundation. It simply does it's job. I tried MUFE HD but I find myself going back to this one. It's buildable to full coverage but I find that it doesn't actually stay for long until it fades and you have to re-apply...
It also sucks that in Canada in doesn't have the full range of shades and its more expensive (almost $20)

I gave this a try after all the numerous reviews online. Lots of Youtube Guru's love this foundation! So when my glass Mac foundation bottle shattered on my bathroom tile floor I needed a alterrnative, especially since my closest Mac counter is an hour away... So I went to my closest drug and grabbed a bottle of Revlon Colorstay. Here's my impression of the product overall:
-The color is very similar to my own however it does oxidize and by the end of the day I can tell it turns a little orangey-er than the color it is when you apply it. For reference I am a NC20, so I have yellow undertones. The color I wear is 220 Natural Buff, the color it turns is not super noticeable and I'm not saying it a extreme unnatural color since I have Warm untones. It's just something to note, especially since I really am adverse to darker foundations... I feel like it just makes your face look dirty.
-Second thing I noted is that it makes my skin look oily, oilier than my mac foundation. I apply lots of powder by the end of my shift I am very shiny. :( Even Urban Decay's De-slick doesn't completely control the shine with this foundation
-I feel like I have broken out a lot more since I started using this and thats compared to Mac foundations, which is saying ALOT
-It can get kinda splotchy and leave a line where my hairline is.Not cute.
That being said here are the things I do like
- Out of any other Liquid foundation in the drugstore this is my favorite. Because over the years of makeup experimenting (since I was middle school until now, College) I have gone through MANY different ones.
-The foundation does for the most part stay all day like it says, it does start to wear though,
However like I said I love to experiment with makeup and feel like that has kind of made me HE snob. This foundation was a fun to try and I'm glad I gave it a try. But Now I use Nars Sheerglow and I love it it's pretty much perfect!!!

I love this foundation! It's comparable to a high-end foundation. But the great thing about it: it's buildable! In my routine, I usually moisturize before adding this product and then setting it with a pressed powder. I usually use Rimmel's Stay Matte in translucent. I highly recommend it to anyone that suffers from oily skin or acne prone skin. I haven't broken out with this foundation. The price is a little too high but for what it provides, it's worth it!

This is my current foundation and I have been using it for about a month now.
I bought this product because a friend recommended it to me and I originally loved it. It definitely provided full coverage and to my surprise, did not break me out. Also, the shade I picked out was perfect for my skin color, which is rare because I have such pale skin; however, as time progressed I found some faults with this product, but I still LOVE it. The first thing I noticed when I opened it up was that it did NOT have a pump (that's why I gave the packaging quality a 2.) Not only does not having a pump make the product less hygienic, but I also find that when I pour it out, SOO much product comes out and I waste 1/2 of it. In addition, the product dries REALLY fast. If you purchase, definitely take it section by section rather than applying dots to separate parts of your face then blending because it WILL stay.

I rarely wear foundation because I don't like the feel of it on my face. I've used MAC Face and Body, which is lightweight enough not to drive me nuts, but I didn't want to spend that much on something I rarely use so I picked up the Colorstay foundation for $12 at my local drugstore. I have NC25/30 dry skin so I chose the Buff color in the normal/dry skin formula. It's winter now and I prefer light to medium coverage so I mixed the foundation with a little moisturizer before applying. It went on smoothly, matched my skin tone very well, and felt totally weightless. It didn't crease, turn pasty or go orange as cheap foundations tend to do. For people looking for light coverage, this is a great option that won't break the bank. I took off 1 star for the wide-mouth glass bottle packaging.

Sometimes I feel like I'm the only one who dislikes this as it's always raved about! First off, it's kind of expensive for a drugstore foundation (about £12.50 here in the UK). I wouldn't mind the price tag if it was good, but ugh.. no.
It smells pretty awful, like chemicals. Definitely not a great choice if you're sensitive to scents. It disappears after a while, but it's very unpleasant when applying it.
The packaging is annoying because it doesn't have a pump, so you have to pour it out and if you're anything like me, you'll always pour out too much and it's a pain to try and get it back into the bottle. I also find it collects and cakes around the neck of the bottle which is kinda gross...
And, worst of all, I find it to be a generally bad foundation. I find it extremely cakey and it settles into lines, especially around the mouth and nose.
Really disappointing because Ivory is one of the only DS foundations light enough for me without being orange...

Well I have used it several times in the past month. I love this foundation. It's not my # 1 choice, but for ever day use to save a little, I think it's great. It gives you full coverage. I've heard some people mention it broke them out, well I have sensitive skin and it didn't break me. As always wash your face with a soap free daily face wash like neutrogena gentle daily face wash and you'll be fine.

I've finally found a drug store foundation that works well. It matches my skin tone (I forget what the name of the shade is but the number is 150 in the dry to normal), it blends well, and best of all it covers up redness. It is medium coverage and I don't have to use much. You do have to pour it and you can accidently pour too much. It doesn't last the 24 hours the bottle says that it does (of course). I use a primer (La Base Pro by Lancome) and set it with a powder (Coty Airspun translucent powder) and it lasts a good 6 hours which is good for me. Usually it looks as if I have no makeup on an hour after application if I don't use primer and set it. I've never tried this without primer and powder and wouldn't want to.
Over all this is great for a smooth, flawless base and coverage is excellent. I personally prefer a thicker, less liquidy formula but I put that aside because of all the good qualities in the foundation. I have found my regular foundation. It cost $10 at WalMart and is definately affordable especially for its great qualities.

So to give you a bit of background, I use benefit boi-ing concealer along with pixi flawless and pore less primer, Mac Studio finish natural, and UD all mightier spray with this. I have the oily/combination version in ivory 110
I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION!!
-amazing shade range
-sturdy glass packaging
-no to liquidy or creamy
-$13 which is a lot for drugstore, but for a high end girl like me it's cheap
-compares to high end foundations
-covers up redness
-have to tap onto hand
-looks odd on neck and chest
-isn't amazing at covering pimples (concealer can fix that though ;) )
-can look streaky in under eyes
Overall. It's a pretty amazing foundation, however for a mature women or man I can see it settling into fine lines. I would definitely repurchase , and will. It is a HG product for me! However I really wish a pump would be added:(

Blah. I really really do not understand why this product is so popular. I have been using the same foundation for a while, and thought I'd give this a try because of all the talk. I was quickly disappointed. The bottle has no pump or anything so it pours out (not what I'm used to I guess), it's suppose to last all day (not so much), and lastly, it's about two shades darker than me (but I'm thinking that was because I might have been in a hurry with my purchase). Anyway, overall I am not impressed. Probably won't be buying this again. It's not a huge loss, it was fairly inexpensive and maybe I'll have a different opinion within a few months (when I'll be more tan and able to have it match me).

I purchased this product today, in the norma/dry formula, and am so far really pleased. My bottle is a slightly different packaging to the one displayed in the picture, it doesn't contain "softflex" and the cap displays "24 hrs". Oddly enough, the tester bottle for this WAS the one displayed in the picture above, so I figure they're the same anyway. While the bottle is attractive enough, it is a real pain, hence why I only gave it 4 lippies. It has no pump, and you're left with having to pour the product out of a big hole. Not the most efficient and can be very annoying, but the product itself makes up for this. Before I brought this I had been using Clarins Ever Matte (£12 more than this), and whilst I was quite happy with it, I was still searching for my HG foundation. After hearing rave reviews I purchased this, and it hasn't disappointed me yet. In the Clarins I was matched up to Ivory, but in Revlon I am Buff (Revlon's Ivory was far too pale for me), which I think is a better colour on me than the Clarins as it has more of a yellow undertone and evens out my red patchy areas. I applied this without primer with an Ecotools kabuki brush and set with Max Factor creme puff powder. It's a better coverage than Clarins and I felt it made my skin look healthier, and it covered my large pores well. I only had to touch up a few pimples and apply under eye concealer, but I didn't expect it to completely cover all that anyway (my skin is a nightmare). What really impressed me about this is it's staying power. After a very intense workout and lots of sweating, it still remained flawless - I can believe that it WOULD last many, many hours and as I've heard mentioned, would require a good cleanser or makeup remover to remove. For a foundation, that, to me, is amazing. I've never had a foundation last through such "trauma" as this has today.
For a high street foundation it is very good, and beats many of it's more expensive counterparts. Give it a try!

For the past couple of months I have been using the Maybelline foundations because I could not find a decent foundation. I was tired of wasting money on products that didn't work so I stuck with the Maybelline. Don't get me wrong it's an okay one. It got me through. But even the lightest shade did not go with my skin tone. I came across the Revlon Colorstay and I was very wary of buying it but I went ahead anyways and I LOVE it. Yes, it is thick but personally I like that. It's more coverage and I love full coverage. I get the combo/oily skin one and it works perfectly. As soon as it dries it stays dry. No oils leak through. I almost don't even need powder to set it but I do anyways just for the heck of it. I do not need as much as I would have used before. All day it stays on my face. Dry and no oily shine. By the end of the day before, my foundation would be blotchy and sliding off. With this, it's still on and working. It is hard to get off even with face wash but I don't see that as a big deal. Another thing I like is it doesn't transfer! Before when I go to hug someone the makeup would rub off on their clothes. This, it stays on. If you have a hugging party, I would recommend this :P. Honestly, I don't see cakeyness unless the colors are horribly different. Other than that it just looks like you are wearing makeup. And! One last thing, the scent. My eyes are super sensitive so I cannot use any product with any kind of scent or they start to burn. This has no scent to me. So if you have sensitive skin or eyes, this should work pretty well.
