    I really loved this foundation when I first started using it but after a while it looked really cakey though I loved the coverage it gave. Now I use it as cover up and it works PERFECTELY. It covers anything I want with out looking overly cakey. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Well worth buying!

    Since I started wearing makeup, I stuck to the same mineral powder as I was too scared to try a liquid. But eventually, when I couldn't stand how orange and cakey the powder looked, I decided to change my ways. It has been the best makeup choice I've ever made. This foundation is so light and easy to apply, looks natural and matches my skin perfectly despite how fair I am. I applied it with a more Techniques foundation brush and it went on like a dream! You can layer it well and it doesn't look orange or heavy. Don't be afraid of this liquid foundation - it's wonderful. Expensive for a chemist foundation, but absolutely worth the price! I love it. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Love this foundation!

    I'm one of those girls who frequently try out new makeup to try and find the best product out there- and I've finally come across it. This makeup is perfect. I apply it when sponge wedges, and the texture looks very natural. It dries within a couple minutes, and once its dry you can apply whatever powders to your face and it won't mess up the foundation at all. I am a redhead and my face has a more of pink undertones, and I also have a few blemishes here and there. After I put on this foundation, my skin looks flawless and you would never know that my skin is otherwise pretty crappy looking. Since I am so fair, I brighten up my face with a little bronzer and blush, and I always get compliments on my makeup. I put the tiniest amount of power ontop of everything just to set it all, and it lasts all day. I can even go swimming with it and when I get out of the pool my skin still looks flawless. Revlon colorstay is a miracle and I have been using it for probably about a year now, and I don't plan on switching! I use the foundation for oily skin in buff. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Tinkle in my Eye...

    I rarely ever post anything on Total Beauty but I do love to read other post from women about their beauty experiences all the time. But this particular post pertains to Revlon Colorstay make-up in Combination/Oily Skin in Mahogany. I was sooooooooooooooooooooooo very skeptical at first about trying this foundation. Finding the right color, texture and price can get exhausting. But after doing moree heavy duty reviewing and throwing caution to the wind, I decided to go ahead and give it a try. I brought the make-up on Friday, June 15, 2012 and I didn't get the chance to use it until the following day. But I will back up a bit before I explain the experience. I have truly bad acne/oily/blemished skin and I have a very hard time finding make-up that is true to my skin and my beauty. I've used high-end foundation to drug store but this is the best on I've ever came across in all of my makeup using years!!!! It made me literally wanna cry at how it made my skin feel and look. I have the right color, it stays on, it does cause my face to look like I rinsed it in olive oil. If I could marry this foundation I would because I finally found my true love. It's the best thing that I own besides all the shoes I own(which is a lot). I feel like a million bucks and my confidence is insane. Revlon, I don't know if you read reviews from other sites but if you do, hear my Tiger roar, I LOVE YOU!!! — 1 year, 2 months ago

    My go-to foundation

    I ALWAYS go back to this foundation, idk why I even attempt to try others......curious I guess. This formula lasts all darn day. I have light-med skin with patches of melasma and I use Buff and Sand Beige mixed then I have to add a few sprinkles of Turmeric powder (I break open a capsule) then I get my perfect shade. I apply quickly with a stippling brush, then use it as a concealer where needed. moreSET WITH CLEAR POWDER--there are many brands, I use Luminess clear powder---then I apply cream blush with a stipling brush on top of that (wait a few minutes to let settle though). The look is flawless, soft, luminous, excellent coverage, and I only need one touchup during the whole day on sides of nose and chin where I get a bit oily. This is a must have. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    One of my go to Foundations

    I do love this foundation very much. I found the color selection was minimal and I end up purchasing 150 buff normal/dry skin. When you apply the foundation make sure to do it in sections then apply your chosen powder as you go. If you apply the foundation all over the face, then apply powder the foundation doesn't have as much coverage. It is a matte look for sure, it doesn't have a glow or dewy morefeel to it. Another thing I love about this foundation it fits any type of skin type like oily or dry. I very much recommend this foundation and it does truly have 24 hour coverage. Decent price and amazing quality!! Go get it now :) — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Best Drug Store Full Coverage

    I really like this foundation for the coverage it gives. I have dry skin occasionally and I find it works best if I use a damp sponge to apply it and Since this foundation drys quick it is easier to blend with a damp sponge so Definitely try it like that if other techniques aren't working for you. So yea overall I would recommend this product to anyone needing to cover scars or just likes the more coverage look. With that said, It is a heavy foundation and you will definitely feel it on your skin so keep that in mind. Also, very minor rub off and it really is a long lasting foundation even through sweat!! The best drug store full coverage foundation in my opinion. — 1 year, 2 months ago

    Didn't Meet Expectations

    I love MAC Studio Fix Fluid, but I heard this was a great alternative and that it provides great coverage. The price point was great as well as the color match and coverage. However, this product smelled horrible to me and did not go on as easily as expected. I feel that there other liquid foundations at the same price point, are simply better in my experience. — 1 year, 2 months ago
