I've been using this foundation for about 2 years now. Its def my "go to" foundation. I have freckles, acne scars, and slight sun damage on my forehead. When I say this stuff covers it all, I'm not playin. Its def a buildable full coverage. It doesn't take much to get there, either. I use a primer first, let that set and then apply this.
· it's thick, and you have to work quick.
·I wish it had a pump bc I hate using my finger and double dipping into this. for bacteria purposes.
·staying power is unlike anything I've used previous.
·There is barely ANY transfer.
·doesn't set in fine lines too bad at all.
·in my opinion it works best...when dry and you set it with a mineral powder. (that's what I do anyways)
·Even in the summer months, it's tough to sweat this off.
I love this product and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for lasting full coverage.

This is an incredible find. I like it better than all the high end foundations. I thought Lancome Teint Miracle and Photogenic were the best I had found until I found this one. It evens out your skin tone and looks completely natural. The nude color is a perfect color match for me. What I like best is that it looks just as good at the end of the day as it did in the morning. It doesn't like oil come through and make your face shiny at the end of the day. It has a luminous glow to it. My skin has never looked better.

This is a good drugstore foundation. It is a bit pricey for a drugstore foundation, but the coverage is alright for the money--I usually get a medium/full coverage look with a semi matte finish. When applying, you must work quickly and blend, blend, blend, because it will stay where you put it (in a good and bad way). It does an acceptable job of controlling my oil, but it still separates on my skin after about 8 hours. I will continue to buy this to use in between trips to Sephora, but it's not my daily go-to.

I used this years ago (b4 reformulated!) & had remembered I liked it back then so I decided I was gonna try a "new" foundation (DS), so I bought 2 diff Loreal's & this....& they are all good in their own ways, but I like the ColorStay for a few major reasons: 1 full coverage 2 can find anywhere (no special trips to the mall like MAC/Ulta/Sephora) 3 no transferring onto clothes 4 can find deals on it like BOGO 50%. 5 you get a lot of product for ur money 6 color selection is decent for the majority of medium skin tones (this could be a con if ur really pale or WOC). The things I didn't like were: 1 soooo hard to remove (mere makeup wipes don't do the job & that's what I normally use at nite 2 price (kind of high for a DS foundation) 3 hate the bottle!!!! It is hard to dispense, wish it had a pump & don't like glass bottles. So I guess I had more reasons to like it than not! I am a big ColorStay whipped fan, & I love this foundation too. There's no reason a girl has to have just one favorite foundation :) This kept me blotting like usual but didn't break me out. I've got extremely oily skin, can be acne prone if wrong products. I will repurchase!

I wanted to love this, since it's so popular amongs the oily people, like me, but it's horrible. I got super dark after it settled on my face. The shades are wack, it smells like insect repelent, and it gave me a rash.

I've heard so many positive reviews about this foundation and I had to try it out for myself. Turned out to be the worst foundation for me. I have normal/fair skin. This foundation first off smells weird. It covers well but it looks like a mask on your face. It is really hard to wash off ( with soap, foamy remover, etc). I stopped using it and still have a full bottle. I should throw it out.

Revlon Colorstay was my holy grail foundation for a good few years until I discovered Almay's TLC foundation. I don't want to burst anyone's bubble but if you're acne prone like myself and seeking at least a medium coverage foundation that will stay on all day, I promise that Almay whups Colorstay's butt. When I went back to Colorstay for a bit after running out of TLC, I found that my T-zone became oily much quicker, and rubbed off far more easily. I wear TLC with Nude by Nature's mineral cover over the top, and once I've applied it at 7am, it won't come off until 11pm when I head to bed and wash it off myself. Colorstay wins in the colour range department, but if you're lucky enough to find a match in the TLC range, you'll never have to scour MakeupAlley for another foundation again. The only reason I'm still searching is because the lightest Almay shade (Buff) is a teeny tiny tad too dark for me. It's slightly darker and slightly more pigmented than Colorstay in Buff, which is a perfect match for my skin. But if you've got fair, warm toned skin, give Almay a shot and I promise you won't be disappointed.

Pros:-good coverage-didn't oxidize like most foundations I've used-the color really does stay-nice semi dewy finish-good to lightly cover my undereyes instead of also using a concealer -good amount of product-drugstore. Easily found and good price-wide shade selectionCons:-sticky unless set-feels heavy and sits on top of skin-very hard to completely take off-no dispenser which makes it unsanitary -broke me out especially in between eyebrowsOverall I would not buy this product again. It makes me feel sick because it just sits on top of my skin and doesn't let it breathe. It also breaks me out which is very rare because I before this I've only had about four pimples in four years
