Horrible foundation!

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.

Best foundation

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.


Blend quickly

Ideal for

People with oily skin

Holy grail!

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!


use a stippling brush to give a flawless finish.

Ideal for

Anyone with pink undertones not really for someone with below undertones

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.


Blend with a little bit of moisturiser if you want less coverage, it will fade more quickly but looks more natural.

Ideal for

Oily skin, especially in summer.

Great foundation!

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


Blend fast!!

Ideal for

Oily, acne prone skin

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!


Like you should anyhow but make sure you use the make up remover along with a face wash to ensure that you get it all off and don't clog your pores

Ideal for

Oily skins

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.
