Revlon ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex
ColorStay Makeup with SoftFlex was my very first real introduction to foundation back in 2005 when it launched. At that time I had no real idea about makeup application or choosing foundation but ColorStay Makeup was amazing from day one: my skin actually looked flawless and I started to see its benefits right away. In the past I had only worn pressed powders and tinted moisturisers which at the time were right for me but once I saw the flawless, even skin that Revlon transformed my skin in to, I felt invigorated and much more confident. Colorstay Makeup offers a beautiful dewy coverage with a medium coverage. Oil-free, it it ideal for normal and oily skin, leaving skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Available in six lovely shades to cater for a variety of skin tones, ColorStay Makeup with Softflex is truly a beautiful foundation.
Tip: Be mindful when applying the product because the glass bottle will smash if it is dropped.

Best foundation ever!
I honestly never been more surprised than now with Revlon. This would have to be my first time ever to use this brand and I was impressed. My skin has never looked so flawless and oil free ever. The colour- sand beige was perfect for my yellow tinged Asian skin. I will definitely be repurchasing this product again. I highly recommend this!! :)

i use this foundation as my night time routine, when i go out for a night out or something becasue it gives me a full coverage and in the day time i dont need such covergae.
easy to blend and stay on my face all day or night.

I tried this after hearing Clinique Superfit had been discontinued. Having notoriously oily and acne-prone skin, I needed a long-lasting foundation that wouldn't slide off my skin like most liquid foundations I've used.
At first, I thought it sucked. It wouldn't give all day coverage, but I soon realised this was because I was using a Laura Mercier primer that was known for being absolutely crap, so I quit using that one and then tried again.
Does not break me out, and does not get oily at all. Makes my skin look so lovely that I dread having to remove my makeup at night.
I love that I no longer have to use as much concealer.
I recommend using a slightly wet sponge wedge to stipple this foundation on if you want a full, even coverage. Using my hands just caused it to dry too quickly, leaving me with foundation lines.
The only thing I really dislike about this product is the packaging. Revlon, add a pump already!

Light mattifying foundation
This is a decent foundation, albeit the expensive price for a 30mL bottle (I will attribute this to greedy retailers).
Firstly, the foundation is very light and not cakey on me at all - a steep improvement from the Rimmel 25 hour foundation. It's also mattifying and has great coverage! However, its chemical smell is quite off putting but trust me, it doesn't really smell once you apply it on your skin. When applying, blend really fast as it sets quickly and wipe the sides of the foundation well to prevent bacteria. One star off for the price and also the absence of the pump applicator - pouring a little too much is not nice, and it's messy to clean.

It was okay :)
I found this foundation to be okay. It hasn't become my favourite, but it is still quite nice to use. The formula is quite thick, but it does have a good coverage which I like.
I tend to feel this foundation sitting on my face sometimes, so I don't really agree with it's claims to feel lightweight on the skin. Some days I find it can look a little cakey and heavy so for this reason this foundation hasn't become my daily go-to product.
I've read quite a few mixed reviews about this foundation. Most love it, some find it a little less appealing. I would suggest trying a sample out if you can before you splurge the money and purchase.
he range has quite a few shades, so you are likely to find one that matches you perfectly!
The formula also has quite a bit of scent to it, so if you're not a fan of applying products to the face with a noticeable smell then steer clear (it's not an 'unpleasant' smell. It's just noticeable!)
Although this ticked my boxes, I don't think this is a foundation I will be purchasing again.

A high end foundation!
Revlon foundation is a very good product, and definately be compared to the high end foundations like MAC and Clinique.
When I first bought this , I hated it because the lady at the counter gave me the wrong colour for my face and that totally put me off. A few months later my friend forced me back onto it and now, i just can't get off it! DEFINATELY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT

I was so excited to try out this foundation from all the hype on Youtube but it was really nothing special. Sure, the coverage is good, but then again, it feels very thick and heavy on the face. I can almost feel the foundation on my skin. Plus, if I wear it longer than 3-4 hours, it makes my skin break out.

My new fave
I loooove this foundation! Recently I really wanted to switch to a cheaper brand to save myself a bit of money, and something with a bit more coverage that won't make me breakout.
This is a gem. A beautiful natural looking finish on my skin, and covers up everything! Which is what I really wanted with my skin being acne prone with acne scarring.
It lasts all day if I haven't broken a sweat at work, haha! And I love how other make up like blush and eyeshadow look over the top. Even my bronzer works better with this foundation and now doesn't turn orange anymore.
The colour for me is a great match, as I'm fair skinned with yellow ish undertones it's often hard to get a good match, but perfect!
I find it actually washes off my foundation brush ten times easier than my previous foundation, and that was a light coverage one!
At first I wasn't sure I'd get used to the scent, but to be honest now I don't even notice it at all! And I hate scented make up!
Have to say I'm now a Revlon convert!

Best chemist foundation!!
This foundation has been a fav of mine for years.. most liquid foundations i've used from the chemist are crap with pathetic coverage but this one is a great exception.. I love how it covers eveything on my acne prone skin and can be built up to any thickness, also i love the colours its one of the only foundations that perfectly matches my skintone (im quite pale with a yellowish undertones) i definitely recommend it!!
