Good coverage, nice finish
This is a nice foundation that ticks off most of the boxes. It has a lovely creamy consistency and is easily spread over the face. It has a pleasant light scent. The coverage is great leaving a nice even shine- free finish. I feel that the foundation had considerable staying power. I love the pump action dispenser - allows for minimal wastage and mess. The only thing is - I think it is a bit expensive considering the brand...but that could be just me :)

Where has this product been all my life? It is the first foundation I have ever tried that hasn't made my skin more oily and blotchy after use. By the end of 12 hours wear, my skin wasn't oily at all! It also provided great coverage over my acne, and it was easy to select the correct colour to purchase.

My HG foundation
As a makeup artist, I have tried and tested many foundations. This foundation I have found to work the best on the broadest range of clients. I first used it on myself for a good few weeks and using different application techniques (fingers, brushes, wedge sponge and beauty blender sponge) and it's staying power is great! My longest wear for this foundation was 15 hours before I removed it. I have no issue with its scent, as it just smells like a standard makeup smell, and I almost prefer that it doesn't have any added scent as some people can be quite sensitive to these additives. It's consistency is not runny, nor thick and I think this is why it easily adapts to so many different application techniques. It is the first foundation that hasn't increased the oil in my t-zone or rubbed away from around my nose. Highly recommended for those wanting a fuller coverage as it easily covers redness and acne with only one application, and is easily buildable. On the other hand I have also mixed it with my daily foundation for a more day to day use to help even out my skin tone. I own the entire colour range and have not yet had issues matching skin tones.

wish i found this so much sooner!!!
i am a major user of mac studio fix, but since i found this there is nothing else i want to use. I especially love that it is for oily skin, so it is an foundation i can actually use. I love how this is a full coverage foundation, love lasting staying on all day!

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, mineral...you 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!
