This foundation gives such full coverage! i love it to bits!!! i have the colour in 'golden beige' which is almost a perfect match for me. it really does stay on all day, which i love. for school, i always sheer it out with some moisturiser to make the coverage look lighter.

I have been using Revlon Colorstay Combo/Oily for the past 2 years and I have to say it is my FAV foundation. I have acne and acne scarring and it has a great coverage it covers everything.
*It last ALL day trough, sweat, tears, swimming, hot days.
*It covers everything
*It is really hard to get it all of so it does clog pores and probably makes acne worse.
*It is quite obvious when your wearing it.
So overall i love this foundation but I am trying to clean my skin up so i have stoped using it, and started using Nude by Nature liquid foundation and powder which has a great coverage when you use both but the powder just by itself isn’t that great at covering acne or scarring it is just good at evening out your skin.

really lasts all day
This foundation is as medium to full coverage. It is very obvious that I am wearing it. It is very difficult to remove even when I scrub my face. It has a great colour range and is very easy to match to my face. I like how it is easy to match the colourstay powder to the foundation as it comes in similar colours. A great alternative for the MAC studio fox fluid.

Does work for really oily skin
I managed to get this at a discount price of $24.
I am gratefully I did not shell out the near $40 original price tag.
I really only have a lot of cons for this foundation:
- doesn't stay on the whole day.
- appears obvious your wearing it and trying to cover blemishes.
- on chin and above and below lips hair follicles are accentuated.
- perfect colour match
I will continue to use this until I've finished the bottle. At the moment I am only applying in for going out of an evening.

Used to love it, but...
I have quite oily skin and used to love Revlon Colorstay for Combination/Oily skin.
However, recently i tried the one for normal/dry skin (what is "normal" anyway.) and didnt realise how much the combination/oily foundation brought out all my fine lines!!!
I had obvious laugh lines once the combination foundation had settled in and i always blamed it on my partner for making me laugh too much :) :) :)
Now that i have tried the normal/dry foundation, my lines aren't half as bad!!!
The combination/oily foundation seemed to dry out my face, yet it was still oily ... as though it was too dry and fighting twice as hard to get back moisture. I dont like that at all!
Honestly, i think i will only use the combination/oily foundation for a night out, simply for its good coverage and staying power. Fine lines arent as visible at night ;)

The Only Foundation I will Ever Use!
I worked a very physical job and was 1 of the only women who worked my job. I was always sweating and every foundation I used would basically melt off with sweat. I found Revlon Color Stay and finally a make up that stayed on all day!! I have used this for years and no other foundation can compare!!

BEST DRUGSTORE, DEVO ABOUT PRICE THOUGH
I'd been wanting to try this foundation for ages but never got around to it because it was so expensive. But recently it was on sale at priceline, so i thought id just pick some up.
As you should no, I've been a mac girl for properly a year and a half and had never tried something since cause it was my HG.
BUT THIS IS literally the best i love the texture i love the colour i love how it stays on all day its just amazing! It does dry quite quickly which is kind of annoying but other then that and the price ITS AMAZING!!

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%.
