Best Drugstore Foundation
This is the best drugstore foundation and is on par with MAC Studio Fluid and Estee Lauder Double Wear. It gives fantastic coverage and lives up to its promise. I have worn this for 16+ hours and it has not budged. It does not feel like I'm wearing foundation and never looks cakey. The reason why it breaks some out is that due to its staying power it does take quite a bit of effort to remove and if not removed properly does clog pores however this is the case for all makeup that isn't removed properly. I recommend this product 100%.

Colorstay, you are my savior!
Revlon Colorstay foundation is, hands down, my absolute favourite foundation. The consistency of it is thick, which I enjoy as I need high coverage. The lasting power is fantastic - it stays on all day and all night, even though sweats and tears. I give this a ten out of five. Will definitely be repurchasing again.

My favourite Foundation for over 10 years!
Yup you heard right girls, i've been using this foundation for 10 years.
I've tried a few others along the way, but I always end up ditching the bottle and going back to this.
Yes it is a little pricey, but well worth every cent.
It's fantastic for Oily skin, stays all day, even on those hotter summer days when you tend to sweat a bit.
It barely moves an inch in the water as well. Yes i'm guilt of wearing makeup when I go swimming.
Best stuff I ever bought and I will continue to use this product for as long as Revlon make it.

My favourite foundation!
My favourite foundation! It leaves your skin feeling moist and fresh all day... feels as though you aren't wearing anything. Beautiful staying power, I apply in the morning and it's still there at night. I really love the huge range of shades that are available, it's easy to find your perfect match. I'm definitely buying this one again!

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.
