I have to say, I'm really surprised by the bad reviews. I didn't have any problems with shimmer or sparkles- the foundation just looks glowy on my skin, and I'm super oily. I love how creamy it is, it's very easy to apply with my fingers, a sponge, or my stippling brush. I dust some finishing powder over it and it makes my skin look healthy and gorgeous. I'm pretty fair and I wear the second lightest shade- 002 Vanilla. I might try the lightest shade when winter hits.

As everyone has said, the packaging is ace- all foundations should have pumps!

I was surprised that I really liked this product. It covered all my imperfections & once I applied it, I couldn't see any shimmer at all. I set it with the Photoready Revlon Powder & my skin looked flawless. I have Normal skin on my T-zone & Dry sometimes flaky skin everywhere else, with visible pores on my cheeks. I also love the packaging.

goes on nicely but it's too shimmery and i'm pretty sure the shimmer clogs my pores hence why i always break out after wearing it so i wouldn't buy it again but the pump bottle's awesome and i think every foundation should come in a pump bottle.

OK. I'm one of the oldies reviewing this. Even at my age, I have oily sking.

This was a bit greasy for me so I did not use it anymore.

I do like the acompanying powder

I bought this product at CVS with very low expectations. Many people have not given it good reviews but I love Revlon Colorstay foundation soo much that I couldn't help but try it. The shade range is small but I was lucky enough to find a match. Unlike the Colorstay foundation, this came with a pump, which I love! It makes controlling the amount of product much easier not to mention it is much more sanitary. This foundation is sheer - medium coverage with the option to build and honestly feels a little bit cakey upon application. It does have shimmer in it which is OK. This foundation was made to make your skin look "flawless" in photos, which surprisingly enough, worked! Any blemishes I had while wearing this foundation did not show up in pictures! It's not an everyday foundation but definitely something I will keep in my stash for special occasions.

Colorstay is my HG foundation, but from time to time I'm tempted to stray. Picked this up kind of on impulse, and what a waste of $15. I have worn it once. It's sparkly! As a general rule, I hate shimmer and this was just way too much all over my face. My skin is decent, but I have pores and I get a little oily in the t-zone, and this just did all the wrong things for me. The staying power is disappointing as well.

I really, really love the bottle though, does anyone know how to take it apart so I can put my Colorstay in there instead?

More of a 3.5/5. Not a bad foundation, but more powdery than I was expecting. The consistency and finish remind me of L'Oreal True Match. It makes me look polished, but not in a fresh way, more of a soft and shiny way. If you look closely in the photo comparison between this and the MUFE you will see the blended part of the Photoready is a lot more matte. If you have rough skin I would reconsider, and if you have oily skin I don't think you'd like the lasting power or the shimmer. This is probably a better bet for normal/combination skin that wants a shimmery glow and decent coverage. Which fits me, I just don't care for the matte finish as much. 003 Shell was a great match for my skin (NC20/NC25), the packaging is genius and no breakouts. I would buy it again, but not a holy grail.

Well the good news is that this looks great on my hand. On my face, it did nothing. I mean i've tried worse, but this has 0 coverage, which is dissappointing because the color match was perfect. They're very yellow based colors, which is the most natural looking. But after applying a layer, my skin looked the same, perhaps slightly brighter.

I liked the idea of this foundation, but the consistency was a little on the oily side and yes, there were sparkles. And I know it isn't the foundation's fault, but I'm going to knock on it for the lack of olive-friendly shades. 006 medium beige was waay too red and the same could be said for the (apparently yellow?) 008 golden beige. I would have loved it if the shades were more...realistic? Otherwise the coverage was good and the consistency was kind of like MUFE HD except maybe a little thicker. But man, not enough shades!
