I had 2 issues with this foundation. It turns significantly darker on the skin compared to the initial color that comes out of the bottle. But ok, I have bought a lighter shade so I guess it doesn't bother me that much. The second is that when I apply it, it rubbs off!! I never experienced something like that with other foundations!! Does anyone here have the same experience, please do tell, maybe I purchased an old one or it changed it's consistency somehow? Really really bothers me for the price. Everything else very good, provided exactly enough amount of coverage but not looking like a mask, not settling in fine lines and pores.
I was impressed with this at first because it provides a really good coverage and has a nice shade range. What bothered me was that it is to drying on my face, emphasising my large pores and in couple of times aplliying it, it broke me out :(

At first I was dissapointed with this product since I was having a bad skin days at the time and it covered nothing. But now when my skin cleared up a bit I really enjoy putting this on, it provides not a coverage but a veil which unifies your skin tone, a bit of concealer on the spots and it is perfect for spring, summer sunny days when you just don't want to be heavily made up. Quite expensive but you receive for it a large quantity, package is just as I like it, simple in a tube. The shade selection is poor though, I think altogether 3 shades - I do not understand why TM's always have such a poor selection of shades...
I finally bought Revlon Colorstay only because of such of good reviews on this product. My skin is prone to brakeouts and oily, so I chose the combination to oily version. My best up to date liquid foundation is EL Doublewear which stays all day long on my face, has a high quality coverage and shade of colors to choose from. In comparison to EL Doublewear, I can say that the Revlon one is pretty similar in terms of very good coverage and lasting all day, very nice shades to choose...BUT I think it does oxidise a bit towards the end of the day, which EL did not on me. Also, the reviews mentioned that it is really heavy to apply, but in comparison to EL it really isn't! EL is more sticky and more thick consistency than Revlon Colorstay. Both of them have really bad packaging (without a pump), but that does not bother me that much, only in a sence that a lot of product stays in the bottle once you cannot get it any more out of the bottle. Comclusion: Revlon Colorstay is very, very good product and I will repurchase again, but in comparison to the EL Doublewear, I would say that EL is very slightly better.
I love LRP and this product is definetly the best product I have used as a day treatment for my acne prone and sensitive skin. The improvements on my skin was shown immediately, the skin surface is more clear, the pores smaller and the whole appereance is better. I can't accually remember why I stopped using it, but I will repurchase. The one negative thing is that it may dry out your skin a bit.

Very good product for oily skin, it does mattify really good. It is mild, therefore suitable for oily or acne prone, but also sensitive skin, like mine. The one thing I dislike is the packaging in the pump bottle. I always feel like a large quantity of the product stays in the bottle...I much more like the classic tube. Would recommend.
Very good coverage, long lasting and nice natural shades, this is perfect. BUT for mine enlarged pores too heavy and makes it look even worse... :(
I find this product very good, since it is a tinted moisturiser, which should be lighter than a regular coverage, and it is, and still it covers very well, even on my acne, oily, sensitive problematic skin. The packaging is as I like it, without bottles or pumps. The only thing that I don't like is the range of colors, it is very hard to find one that suits me.
This is my favourite liquid foundation of all times. My skin is not so much more acne-prone but not even as a result of acne-years, so I need a qualitative coverage which stays in place all day long. Avene does that and looks very natural on skin. The packagings is as I like it, don't like bottles and pumps. The price is ok, not expensive at all.
