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

I've worked on the beauty counters for a few years and I always used Clinique as it was good for my oily skin but now that I'm no longer on the counters and no longer privy to a fantastic discount on the high end products I started using Revlon colour stay for the oily skin and its awesome but you do have to make sure that you are wearing the right colour otherwise it's very masky! I've been out in 30+ degree heat and this stuff doesn't slide off!

ColorStay SoftFlex Blends My Freckle Sprinkles To A Natural Even Finish
Revlon ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex SPF6, sample comes in a foil sachet. I have the shade Natural Beige.
The liquid makeup provides a light comfortable feel with the SoftFlex Technology.
It is an oil-free formula that controls shine and the coverage is medium to full for a natural flawless finish.
I cleanse, tone and moisturise before applying makeup, at times I also exfoliate as this helps to eliminate dry flaky skin.
The makeup has a thin consistency, a little goes a long way, I blend it as I apply it.
The texture is fine and it feels light on skin.
The fragrance quite pleasant for me.
ColorStay blends well on skin, it seems to adapt to my skintone as it drys.
I have a sprinkling of freckles across my nose, ColorStay gives my skin a nice even finish, I wouldn't call it flawless but it is a great natural finish for my tanned combination skin.
Fine lines are minimised and it is fantastic for controlling shine even on the warmer days I used it.
I do like the way it stays on skin, oil, gravity and heat don't seem to be a problem.
I did not have to use a primer.
The makeup sets on skin, the SoftFlex Technology allows the finish feeling to be natural, comfortable and pliable with the added bonus of minimal sun protection. Toot Toot.

A solid 4 stars
Can't believe I've never done a review for this? I'd give this foundation a pretty solid four stars. People often complain about the paint like smell, but it doesn't smell like paint to me, paint is much worse and so the scent of this doesn't bother me much. The coverage is pretty full even with one layer, my blemishes are toned down significantly with one. The lasting power of this is superb. I love the finish, I think it stays fairly matte throughout the day. The only thing I dislike is how difficult it is to wash off brushes! Antibacterial soap doesn't work and so I have to use olive oil to break the foundation down on my brushes and then the brushes require around 4 more cleans after that to get rid of the oil, so washing it is an annoying process and I only reserve using this foundation for days I want to look moderately flawless.

As a makeup artist I have tried many different foundations and products. I was introduced to this particular one a short time ago and love it! Light weight, great coverage, many colours available. Absolute flawless finish.

Favourite foundation ever.
I use to use MAC studio fix until i tried this. everyone compares the two and says revlon color stay is a dupe for the studio fix and they aren't wrong, i prefer revlon color stay as it's cheaper, available to me more and i find the bottle lasts longer.

Better than expected
Having tried many brand name foundations, I found Revlon colorstay just as good!
It gives fantastic coverage! I have oily skin so I use the one for oily/combination skin however I found it doesn't prevent shine so I always have to use a powder, but i dont mide since that is my routin anyway.
I would recommend this to others - don't waste your money on more expensive brands because revlon really is just as good!

I have this in Buff for combination/oily skin and it goes well under MAC studiofix powder instead of having to pay more for MAC foundation. Its often on sale at priceline. It provides good coverage and i dont need to put much on, though it gets oily quickly on my skin and doesn't last 3hours before i have to take it off and start over.
