i'm not a big makeup wearer because i can never seem to find a right fit for my needs, i'm very pleased with this product, it goes on very smooth and covers well, it isn't overly thick, i prefer light coverage, it also had great staying power and stayed the entire day without looking cakey or dull, i really am enjoying this product and i'll most likey purchase this in the near future, received this product complimentary from crowdtap and my review is my own opinion of this product

I have never used a primer before applying foundation. This was a new experience for me. I was little leary to how this goes hand & hand. Well to my suprise, the foundation stayed nicely on my skin, Not seeping into pores and not absorbing into my skin. It has a very light feeling, not weighing down my face. Feels like I have no foundation on with a very natural look. I have oily to dry skin depending on time of the day and when I did apply this, it was mid afternoon with oily skin & to my suprise once again, it doesn't look oily now and my skin feels refreshed. Also when I rub my skin, the applied foundation stays on. I will definitely be buying a primer/foundation set again. I highly recommend anyone to try this at least once in hopes you take away a great experience as I have. Thank you Revlon! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

The Revlon ColorStay Full Cover Foundation in the shade Buff offers me full-coverage for up to 24 hours, without caking, fading, or sweating off. It wears incredibly well on my longest, busiest days and is a great shade match. The formula blends in seamlessly with just my fingers, but also applies nicely with a brush or blender. It feels lightweight on my skin, allowing it to “breathe,” and has a slip to it, likely from the silicones it contains. The product label says it dries down to a matte finish, but I’d describe it as more of a satin finish, since there’s still the slightest hint of glow to it. I actually prefer a satin finish, because it appears the most “skin-like” and doesn’t exacerbate dry patches or oily-ness. The foundation washes off easily with cleanser and hasn’t irritated my skin, thus far. It even has salicylic acid to ward off potential blemishes or clogged pores! #sponsored « less

Does not live up to claims!!

This foundation is neither matte, full coverage, nor is it long wearing. I honestly thought I must have bought the wrong product. The product is a mousse-like, fluffy formula that is very blendable. I will say that the application is easy and even, and the color is beautiful....but those are the only positives. This foundation does not set or dry down, whatsoever. I applied with a flat top foundation brush from It cosmetics. Even after setting it with mattifying powder, I still felt that it would wipe right off. On top of the wet feel, it never gave a matte finish like it claims. I wore this for two days (applied at 7 am, removed at 9 pm) and found that it never set. The product smudged and transferred onto my clothing unlike I'd ever experienced. Upon looking at the ingredients, I think that there is too much dimethicone (1st ingredient) causing it to have a slippery, silicone feel. Most foundations have aqua/water as 1st ingredient.I have very oily skin that is NOT acne prone (I don't suffer from breakouts at all). I don't need much coverage but I do need a matte finish. I use several skin care products to manage the oil, and SWEAR by Estée Lauder Double Wear and LOreal Infallible Pro-Matte. Those are TRUE longwearing and matte foundations that do not budge. Both set to an airbrushed powder finish and do not transfer/smudge whatsoever. This honestly felt like a thick BB cream. I felt like my face was melting all day, in December no less!!! I couldn't be more disappointed in this product. « less

The shade I purchased was a perfect match! It’s a medium to full coverage that doesn’t look cakey which is what I’ve been looking for! It’s also smooth, almost like a whipped formula, so it goes on amazing and looks natural. I finally found a perfect drugstore foundation!

Just as good as the original colorstay whipped!

The original colorstay whipped was one of my all time favorite foundations including both drugstore and high end. But unfortunately I could never find a perfect shade match and I hated the glass jar packaging (can't tell you how many times I've dropped the jar itself or the little plastic seal it came with). I'm so happy they revamped/repackaged this formula in a squeezy tube with more shades (still not a big enough variety but I've been able to find a better match for my light medium olive toned skin)! I don't know what it is, but the whipped formulation of this foundation just melts into my skin. Not streaky. Long lasting. Matte - natural matte throughout the day on my oily t-zone. I would say medium - full coverage. Feels very comfortable on the skin, like a moisturizer. But doesn't feel heavy or look cakey. Sad there isn't more positive reviews! Because I never want this foundation to be discontinued! And I hope they continue to expand their shade range! « less
