Breathable and natural look
I have looked for so long for a makeup in my colour!! I use the 110 and it matches my skin so perfectly. I have had some ance in the past and it did a reasonable job at covering most of it but some days when the weather was warmer I also needed a concealer. It is a very light makeup that can be worn all day and provides an easy base to add some blush to or as a base for eyeshadow

Great staying power, just wish the finish was nicer!
My biggest problem with finding a good foundation is staying power. I can't use mineral or powder foundations AT ALL, because I sweat a lot and the second I start sweating the foundation begins to shift. I need the most coverage on my chin, and find this is the first area to go - powder foundations just go splotchy and blotchy and I can't smooth them out no matter how hard I try.
As a result, I can only wear liquid foundations. Some foundations have a great finish but crappy staying power, sliding off my face instantly or just disappearing into nothing. This is the only foundation I've found that actually sticks around in me in the Aussie summer heat, so I will continue to repurchase it based on that alone.
Unfortunately that's really the only thing I like about it. The colour matches me okay, but I just don't like the finish of it. No matter how little I apply, or if I sheer it out with MAC Fix+ or whatever it looks so cakey, thick and heavy on my skin. I can minimise this by spritzing a bit of MAC Fix+ on top after I use my setting powder, but it's a bit of a hassle. I wish this came in a thinner consistency like Maybelline Fit Me, but with the excellent staying power. I like long-lasting coverage, but don't like looking like a grubby cake face :(

Great coverage but made me break out.
This foundation is great if you want a full coverage foundation and don't want to have to apply lots of layers. Although I thought it was great coverage I couldn't use it since it made me break out.. if this also made you break out I recommend Maybelline Superstay Foundation because it is basically the same.

Perfect Colour & No Shine!
I have only been using this foundation for a couple of days but I am in love. I find it very hard to find a foundation light enough for my skin tone but Ivory was a perfect match. This foundation is also great for my combination skin, especially for my oily T-zone. Definitely worth a try!

If you want a good coverage, this is it!
I have been using this foundation for several years now and the formula has changed over years a lot. Before it was thicker and harder to blend, but now it is of a really nice blendable quality.
* Really good coverage if you have acne skin
* Nice natural smooth colour on your face
* Not looking caky
* If you apply powder after (even with oily skin) you won't have shiny face for a long time - the old formula used to make my face shine much faster
* Last a LONG time, I would say it even looks more natural after several hours of wear
* Smell is not 'distracting' your perfume/lotion/nose :) like some other foundations which have disgusting smell
* Has SPF 6 which is good, but most people like me would apply a sun block (Neutrogina is a good one) underneath
* You can choose a foundation not only by colour, but by a skin type, I heard people buying by mistake Dry/Normal foundation having Oily skin, it still worked fine, but shine reappeared faster;when buying the oily Revlon formula the effect was much more sensational :)
* Feels really light on your skin, not like you have a mask or anything like that
* Dries really fast on the skin, so if you didn't blend you will have 'stains' on your face
* People looking for low coverage (for example, just to even out the skin tone) will find it too covering
Other than that, it is a great foundation!

It lasts! I know that it isn't good to sleep in your make up, but one very late night i did, and this was still on my face the next morning. It goes on easily and stopped all shine. Can be a little drying so i'd recommend a good moisturizer and primer.

I love this foundation! I suffer from a lot of redness and serve cystic acne and this cover it amazingly, it is of a thicker consistency than most other foundations I have tried however it is easily blendable and buildable. This is more of a "winter" foundation as the coverage may be too heavy for most people in the summertime however I enjoy a full coverage foundation all year round. It lasts all day as long as it is set with a powder, keeps my oily skin matte throughout the day no matter the weather. Would recommend to anyone looking for a full coverage foundation that won't break the bank and will be sure to last you all day. Worth the money!

Buildable, decent coverage.
I like this foundation but I don't love it. It does not cake and the coverage can be a sheer and heavy as possible. However I found it didn't completely cover my redness (Maybelline 24hr does a better job at that). It's extremely difficult to take off and an SPF 6 is shameful.

I love this foundation it's really great. It gives a nice even coverage and lasts more or less all day. I've repurchased it many times and recommend it for others to try.

Good coverage, with light texture
Colourstay has medium-full coverage and a nice light texture. It blends well with the fingers and does not emphasise the dryness of my combination skin. Last a good amount of time without powder. It has small glitters in it but gives off a matte finish.
