You can stop looking!
I love this foundation. I try the other revlon foundations thinking they'll be this amazing but STOP with this one! You won't find better.
It stays on well, has good coverage, isn't shiny or oily AND has colours for fair skin. I mix it with sunscreen/moisturiser and still get great coverage!

Holy Grail foundation
what can I say about this!
it is my holy grail foundation, and I am in love.
I have tried to compare it to brands such as Mac, Estes Lauder, tarte, YSL and nothing compares!
I have been using this foundation for about 5-6 years now and I will never use anything else. over the years the formula has changed a little but I still love it more then ever. I have used many different techniques to apply this and have found that a sigma flat top kabuki is the best way for me.
I love that this foundation is true to its word. it is a medium to full coverage foundation, which doesn't oxidize much, and doesn't transfer! it stays on all day for me (except my oily nose and chin) and looks as fresh as it did when I first applied it. you can build up the coverage in your trouble spots as well.
this foundation doesn't break me out or smell really bad, and I just love it so much

I know I'm in the minority with this, but I detested this foundation! It was cakey, dried too quickly, and is impossible to set with a powder because any hard work you put in getting rid of the cakiness just from initial application is destroyed as it instantly cakes again! What a waste of money! The only good thing that can be said about this is the colour range.

This foundation has a funny smell as soon as I opened the lid, it dried quickly too but it went onto my pre-moisturised skin smoothly. It dries to a flawless matte complexion which is fantastic and the smell of the foundation began to smell much better when it completely dried! It lasted all day until night and never got sticky and I didnt have to touch up at all.

This is my holy grail foundation! I have combination skin and one bad skin days this covers everything and stays put for up to 10 hours on me. I have this is 110 ivory and its a great match until it oxidises, I wish it was maybe a shade lighter or they had an extra shade and also added a pump. But overall it gives great coverage and has good staying power.

georgeous dewy look
Love this foundation because it leaves the skin feeling fresh and gives a glowy look. The problem is that i have more of olive undertones however and this foundation has more of a pink base so it has to be really blended our and isn't the perfect foundation for me. if you have more of a pink undertone in your skin go for it because its perfect!

Great for combination/oily skin with good coverage and staying power
Medium to full coverage which does not smudge or fade on oily skin. Matt finish but can be a bit streaky when applying with a brush and dries quickly so blending can be difficult.
I find this is the best foundation for my skin type but don't get a dewy glow which I sometimes want to achieve.
Would definitely buy again but I find my skin becomes drier (and paler) in winter so I don't use this foundation all year round.

I love this foundation, it is a holy grail for people who have problems with oily t-zones. It gives a decent buildable coverage with a matte finish. The only problem I have with this foundation is that it smells like chemicals.

I am always trying out new foundations, but I always come back to this one, It is full coverage, so steer clear if you aren't after a full coverage foundation I would steer clear of this. Apart from that, this lasts all day and when it does start to fade, it fades of evenly and doesn't leave patchy bits or streaks. I will use this as long as they make it!

All time favourite
Been using this religiously for around three years. I've tried many of the higher end ones such as Mac Studio Fix Fluid and Lancome Teint Idole Ultra, but honestly, they do not compare.
The coverge: Awesome, medium to full
Feels: Breathable, Lightweight
Looks: Natural,Matte/ velvety Smooth, flawless with a sponge or stippling brush.
Durability: Will last all day if used with a primer and set with translucent powder.
Cons: Dries quickly so blend fast, relatively expensive in Australia
