Flawless coverage, A makeup bag must have!

I bought the Revlon Colorstay foundation for combination/oily skin in 150 BUFF and I LOVE it! I bought it on a whim as my usual foundation was running low and I needed a quick replacement. It matches my skin tone perfectly and blends nicely to create a flawless look. With only one layer applied it covers redness and acne scars. I love that it's SPF and the pump top is a major plus. I've also noticed reduced oiliness on my T-zone when using this foundation and manages to stay smooth and matte throughout my day. It has a tendency to settle in creases around the eyes and lips after the 8hr mark something I avoid by going over with a light dusting of translucent powder. Definitely would recommend!

Great coverage and staying power

This is my go to foundation for going out. It has great coverage, very buildable (I apply with my fingertips and blend well then use a sponge wedge applicator to dab/press it onto areas that need extra coverage) and stays put. Great for oily skin, and mine is very oily, as it stays matte. I love that the bottle now has a pump and I find the product lasts me a lot longer as I'm not pouring excess out by accident. My only issue with it is the huge list of ingredients, I prefer more natural products so I try not to use this everyday. That being said I always keep it on hand as it is one of the few liquid foundations that does not break me out while providing complete coverage.

Wish I'd found it sooner

This is a great foundation, which covers me well when I get breakouts, but doesn't look pancaked on. And I finally found a foundation that matches me! There is a slight smell, a bit like sunscreen. Oh, and I don't even need primer!

I finally found my holy grail foundation!

I've tried numerous foundations in the past few years; liquid, powder, cream, name it, I've probably tried it. All of them just seemed to either oxidize and turn me orange, stay put for about five minutes, or make me appear cake faced. Combined with the fact I'm super pale, it makes finding a suitable foundation very difficult...but then I discovered this, and I don't think I'll ever buy a different foundation again! The ivory shade is perfect, and doesn't leave me looking too washed out when I set it with powder. It provides an amazing coverage which is buildable without leaving me looking greasy and caked, and stays put all day! On a long haul flight from England to Australia I wore this, and it did stay on, looking great, for 12 hours in icky airplane conditions! (I removed it half way through when I freshened up.) I'm so impressed by this and recommend it for those who are still searching for their go to favourite foundation!

Good fit for my skin-type

I have this in the shade Fresh Beige, and I really love the coverage it provides. This doesn't feel too heavy on my skin, and whilst it does not last all day without shine, it is a lot better than many other foundations, and I still feel that my skin can breathe while wearing it. I would happily pay the full price for this product, if it weren't on sale.

When set with a mattifying powder, this gives a perfect flawless finish. I am so happy with this foundation! Also, I was colour-matched at a Revlon counter and the staff did a wonderful job. I also love the pump on the bottle, it is incredibly easy to apply with a foundation brush. Overall, I love this, and while I haven't tried other foundations for oily skin, this would be my favourite thus far!

average lasting, good coverage

I found this foundation to not stay on my oily t-zone. I also struggled to find the right colour match as I found it oxidised quickly and turned to yellow for my skin. However, I have found it very suitable for clients who rave its their HG.

Great flawless coverage

I love how it blends flawlessly and stays put, its formula doesn't leave behind a shiny looking skin. Not greasy and feels light.

My number one full coverage foundation.

I had been searching for a full coverage foundation that didn't melt off my super oily skin within a few hours of application and so far this foundation is the closest thing to perfect I have found! I apply it with a flat top brush over my photoready primer and it blends effortlessly every time. No need for concealer as this hides EVERYTHING! I do find that I start to look shiny after a while but when you have skin as oily as mine.... I doubt this is avoidable. Only annoying thing is the bottle I purchased from the chemist warehouse doesn't have a pump so it can be a little hard to get out of the bottle. Over all I WILL be repurchasing this, definitely my new go to foundation!!

A great, full coverage foundation! - Best in Beauty 2013

Revlon's Colourstay Foundation in Normal to Oily is a budget-priced, moderate to full coverage foundation that gives it's higher end, higher priced rivals a run for their money. I am positive that this product has ignited Revlon's popularity on the cosmetic market, showcasing a high quality, innovative formula that's competitively priced.

I purchased the Golden Beige shade - it's a brilliant match for my warm, yellow light - medium skintone. The 30ml foundation comes in a heavy, sturdy glass bottle with a hygienic, practical pump that dispenses the perfect amount.

And now onto the actual product - the foundation is opaque and of a fluid, light texture. It applies to the skin ultra smoothly, and blends so easily (fingers or brush) to a satin finish. It provides full coverage with a minimal amount, disguising dark circles, uneven skintone, capillaries, blemishes or pigmentation in a single application. The foundation does set within a minute, so you will need to blend fast, however, once it's set, it refuses to move for the rest of the day! It doesn't budge, smudge, wear, fade or oxidise, making the tell-tale foundation smears on your collar history. I work 10 hour shifts regularly, and at the end of the day, my complexion is flawless - the Colourstay looks freshly applied with no creasing, cakiness or oily sheen. The Normal to Oily variation seems to have less heavy moisturisers in the ingredients, and I have found this feature perfect for reducing shine and provides excellent oil control.

I usually set this product with a pressed powder, and I sometimes combine the product with Revlon's Smoothing Primer for a dewy, tinted moisturiser finish. How's that for versatility? It removes very easily with any makeup remover and is non-comeodegenic, and hence this is why I've found Colourstay to be well suited for acne-prone or congested skin.

Revlon's Colourstay for Normal to Oily skin is the best economical but high quality foundation on the low-end market. It's array of shades is bound to match any complexion, and the non-shifting, full coverage finish is sure to delight any recruit at Foundation-holics Anonymous.
