I really, really like this product! I bought it in the lightest shade, and I use it on the second lightest shade. It was regular $18.99 Canadian, and I purchased on sale for $ 9.98! I really like coverage this gives. The first coat is medium coverage, and then I add a second coat on my cheeks and jaw to make it look a little more full coverage. I have combinaion/oily skin, and I find this foundation gives enough moisture to the dry areas without making the oily parts of my face (nose, cheekbones, and chin) look overly shiny. I do set this with a powder. However, I went to work and forgot to set this foundation with a powder, and although it did fade a little bit, it kept a nice coverage.
Another thing I like about this foundation is I can use all five of the shades. None are too light or two dark. Yes, they ae technically different shades, but they do not vary much. At least the one that I have.
The only thing I do not like about the product is the packaging. I know that they needed this pump because of the two foundation colors, but I find that the pump oozes product after I stopped pumping. But it's nothing to worry about. I jus simply squirt less than I would have so that the oozing product makes up for what I want.
Overall, this is a great foundation and I will be purchasing again!

This is a fantastic foundation - it provides almost full coverage and its neat being able to change your shade up and down as necessary - be it a bit gimmicky it does work and there are only two shades to be mixed and unfortunately I am the palest shade on the dial so I am only getting 15ml of useable product out of the 30ml bottle for my money but I picked it up cheap and am a happy camper to keep this aside for nights out and days where I require heavy coverage which isn't too often. The best thing is this is super pale and yellow toned not pink like I thought it would be.

The idea sounds good, different shades of a foundation you can mix to create your perfect shade. However, I really don't want to have to mix my foundation and turn the dial to each one I need, etc. I know that sounds lazy but I have other foundations that I can just give one pump, and I'm set. I can't use any of these colors because they oxidize and turn orange. I swatched them on my arm, and couldn't believe how much the color changed in only a few minutes. I'm not surprised this is being discontinued, luckily I got it on clearance.

I bought this on clearance at CVS. I got the shade deep. I use it on setting 5 which is the darkest. It blends ok. A little oily. Not long lasting either. The packaging is not great. No matter how lightly you pump, excess product oozes out. I prefer Colorstay.

I love this foundation. I get the medium deep and mostly use it on the second click (sometimes I use the first click). I like that you are able to customize the color, however, it end up wasting a large portion of the darker color. I use the dark color with a moisturizer to sheer it out and help it blend. I have not broken out and the product gives decent coverage. Thankfully, I have not had any issue with caking like some of the other reviewers. I am on my second bottle and have another one ready to go after I finish my current bottle. I used to get it at one of my local drug stores but they don't seem to carry it anymore. I hope it is not being discontinued.
I like that Revlon uses a pump dispenser for this foundation so you can use only what you need. It would have been really cool if they sold the cartridges separately and you could replace them as needed.

I really, really like this product in medium 050. I have always had really bad luck with foundations because I have combination skin, but this product evens out all the imperfections and makes me look natural rather than chalky or dark. Plus it has the added bonus of adjustment so I only have one foundation all year long rather than multiple foundations based on the seasons.
Age: 36-43 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Red Eyes: Brown
I apply liquid foundation with a damp sponge and have no problems with caking or streaks. I sometimes mix the foundation with my moisturizer too. Overall I'm happy with the product. It doesn't have a fragrance, others mentioned a smell, I'm not sure if there were different formulations or what. I don't notice the foundation coming out after I finished pumping it either. Some have mentioned that problem. The hole does get caked up a bit inside but I think that happens with any dispenser like this. Most of my make up gets thrown out before I use it all up so it doesn't really bother me that there is some waste with the side that is used less.

I was really surprised that I actually have to say,I don't like this product at all.I like the pump & concept with picking your shade,but the thickness of this foundation was way to much for me.I felt like I had a mask on.I almost love all of Revlon's products,but this was just so bad.I took this right back.I Could'nt wait to wash my face at days end.Won't even give it a 2nd chance~

I just bought this foundation today at Walgreens for a little over 13 dollars. I will update this review later on as I start to use the product more. In general, I like the foundation. It evens out my skin tone. I am fair skinned with rose undertones, but the foundation was not overly yellow like all other foundations I try. The coverage is light or light-medium. My problem with it is that it does not cover my acne marks. I have to use a powder foundation over it. Tomorrow is picture day at school and I am hoping that this new Revlon foundation won't fail me. Before I used MAC Mineralize Satinfinish SPF 15 foundation. I switched to this because the MAC foundation was glittery, oily-looking, and didn't have good coverage. This foundation is better so far because while the coverage isn't incredible, it is not glittery or oily. I also like the idea of being able to choose which foundation color you desire. I am the lightest one, but my skin can also work with the 2nd to lightest one. I haven't used this foundation long enough to recommend it, but so far I am satisfied.

I saw this on clearance at walmart, so I thought I'd give it a try. The coverage is ok but it can look really cakey, if i apply too much. I can't stand the smell. The smell alone, makes me not wanna continue using this product. So glad I didn't pay full price for this. Definitely will not repurchase.

Wasteful packaging considering i use the darkest shade in the container so almost half is unusable. Goes on well and has nice coverage but cakes terribly. I use Clarins Instant Smooth as a primer. Much better choices out there.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Oily, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Green
I really liked this, i liked how the coverage was quite buildable and it lasted quite a long time when i had on my primer and setting powder. Although one thing i have noticed is that it has a very strong quite unpleasant smell which is why i only gave it a four out of 5 :)

Price: About C$21 in Shoppers Drug Mart (not sure)
Packaging: For some reason, the spout always "leaks" foundation, even a few seconds after I've released the pump. Not only does this waste foundation, but it also makes the cap and spout area very dirty.
Coverage: light - medium. This doesn't really cover pimples, although it's good enough for acne scars or slight discolorations. It also settles in patches of dry skin, so moisturize well before applying.
Application: smooth and problem-free. I tend to use either my fingers or a sponge. I've never used a brush with this foundation.
Consistency: creamy and liquid, but not runny. Just the kind of consistency I like. I can dot it around my face without fear of it dripping down or drying out before I blend.
Finish: Satiny. Does not look cakey at all, except when applied on dry patches or flaked skin. It doesn't have shimmer in it as far as I can tell, but the finish is not exactly matte, nor dewy. More like satin-y.
Transference: None. Does not transfer onto clothes or skin once it's dry.
Other comments: I think that the concept is flawed in that this "wastes" a lot of foundation once you start running out of either side and are no longer able to mix your "ideal" shade. With me, I found that the differences between the shades were subtle enough that I could wear them all without it looking too off, but I did have a preference for the lighter shades, which I soon ran out of. I think though, that this will be good for people who are a of a slightly different shade in the summer months as they are in winter. It does not give me the coverage I need for my T-zone acne, so I will try other brands. This foundation blends in with my skin so well that I actually can't tell whether or not it's been wiped off until I run a cleansing cloth through my face. Not sure if that's a good thing LOL.
Bottom line: Don't resort to this unless you absolutely cannot find a shade that fits you well enough, or if you change shades throughout the year. Those with heavy acne will also need more coverage.

Good idea, if the foundation didn't suck. I bought if because I have almost impossible to match skin. The foundation dries too quickly and leaves you with streaky marks. It's got a weird texture and makes even my oily/combo skin look cakey. Even with all those shades, I still had to mix two of them to actually find a *decent* tone for my skin. Disappointment.
Also, breaks me out, looks horrible in general.

i think this is a great idea.. but wrongly executed, because the foundation is not good. ok, it has a good coverage (the way i like.. ), but makes my skin too much oily...

Terrible packaging, color and consistency!!! back to the store :(

Actually maybe. I think it's great in the summer for changing skin tones, but I find in the winter you waste a lot of product with this because I tend to go to the lightest color possible in the colder months so this wastes the other side completely. Also I tried to open it up and wow that was a pain. I think because of the mechanism it has to be built this way, but I feel like it would be better if you could depot it at the end otherwise it's just money down the drain. Also, as nice as it is in the summer it's better I find to use a tinted moisturizer instead.

I've been using this foundation since 2008. It's pretty good, since I've been using it since ever. But, I wanna try a different foundation. This has pretty good coverage, but I wouldn't say it's the best. I'm waiting to run out of my last of this, cause I really wanna try Revlon photo ready to see if it's better for my skin. It's still a good foundation.

First of all I just don't like the concept of this product, you shouldn't HAVE to make your own custom shade of foundation, a brand should sell all different shades and you should buy one to suit your skin and that's that. I understand you may tan in the summer; just use bronzer or buy a shade darker.
Even so I gave this foundation the benefit of the doubt and was disappointed. All shades have an orangey tinge which i usually find, and hate, in high street foundations. Also I found the formulation to sit horribly on my skin and look patchy and strange. This problem may be specific to my skin type so I cannot apply this to everybody.
Even so I just find the whole 'turn the dial to the right shade' a bit strange and fiddly, and you can't even tell just by looking at the bottle if the shade will suit you, so presumably you just have to keep turning and pumping until you find the right spot? Too much like hard work if you ask me.

It slid off of my skin and settled in my poors by mid-day. Too oily. I thought it also gave me a dirty, orange-ish look, even on the lightest shade setting. On the upside, if you're not planning on wearing it for very long, it's great to have a selection of colors. Im a tanner, so i ran into alot of change in color. Maybe for good for dry skin, though my skin isn't particularly oily.
