AHH i love this so so much. I love it more than MUFE, MAC, Chanel, YSL, anything I've tried and I go back to this baby. It feels so lightweight and gives me coverage still! I use a stipling brush from Sigma to get it blended flawlessly. It lasts so long, I set it with a bit of powder and it has the most wonderful skin-like finish, not flat-matte or greasy. The perfect foundation for my combo/oily skin!
Holy grail , hands down . This is light and airy but gives me a nice full coverage with out looking cakey . I use a stipple brush then blend with a beauty blender . Perfect !
My favorite foundation
This is my absolute favorite foundation ever. It has a great consistency that feels great when it's applied. It covers up all of my redness, blemishes, and acne scars. It's my go to foundation for everything. If I want to dress up and look really pretty this is the foundation I use. If there's a special occasion this is what I use.
It also seems to look prettier if you put it on and let it settle before you powder it. It's like it melts into everything and makes the skin look perfect.
The coverage is medium to full which is great. I'm sure that you could get a lighter coverage if you wanted. For me the medium to full coverage is great.
I apply this with my fingers. I did not like how it looked when I applied it with a brush. It did not work well with a sponge either. It seems like using my fingers is the only thing that makes this foundation look fantastic. I just have to make sure that I blend around my neckline because I'm so used to having a brush do it for me.
The wear on this is great. I have to get up really early so this stays on from about 6 am to about 10 pm. It still looks pretty good when I'm about to take it off. I do notice that my skin is showing through the foundation on my cheeks around 9 o'clock. But other than that it looks great the rest of the time.
It looks like there isn't very much in the container and there isn't but it goes a long way. I have had mine for about 3 months and I still have quite a bit. This being said I do mix in other foundations a couple times a week. Only when I'm having really good skin days and I don't need a full coverage foundation. If I used this every single day then I think I would have ran out within a month or a month and a half.
The Colorstay foundations are my HG's.
Fantastic! Best I've tried!
I have a skin condition that causes my skin to become very dry and flaky no matter what moisturizer I use (I use prescriptions now but my skin still has issues). This is the first foundation I have tried where it doesn't turn my face into the Sahara Desert after more than fifteen minutes of wear! In fact, my face stays flawless all day long--even after a long day at work being blasted by steam dishwashers, hot coffee, and general sweaty ickiness. I was able to match my skin tone and it doesn't oxidize, so double win on that front! The only cons are as follows: it never truly "sets" (it will feel tacky several hours after application, but powder can help), and the smell is a little strange and lingers for a long time. So far, I think this is my holy grail foundation!
This is by far the best foundation I've used. Drugstore and high end! Great coverage. It stays on ALL day long, with or without a primer for me. Doesn't look cakey. Very blendable. I hated the original Colorstay, so I was hesitant to try this, but this is completely different from the original. It's not too thick either. I use it when my skin is dry and oily, and it performs the same both ways for me. Sooo awesome!
I ended up getting this because of the reviews I kept seeing. Luckily for me Ivory matched perfectly to my skintone (normally an issue with drugstore brands for me). The coverage is good, I haven't noticed it oxidizing on my face either. Haven't any issues with blending either. The only problem I have, and it could be due to it being winter, is that it seems to be rather drying. Other than that, it comes in second next to me HG.
Happy it worked for me.
Usually things don't work for me especially this foundation I heard good things about this foundation. I decided to try I didn't think it was gonna work for me but when I put it on it did a wonderful job!!!
My Favorite Foundation!
I'm not a big review writer but this foundation absolutely deserves it. I've tried tons of both high end and drugstore foundations and this is by far my favorite all around. I have fairly oily skin with a bit of redness and this solves both of these issues. It controls the oils on my face and doesn't break down on me. I usually set it with powder though, so I'm not sure what the staying power would be like without it. The coverage is definitely medium/full so I wouldn't suggest it if you are new to wearing foundations. It is more natural looking than the original Revlon Colorstay but with the same long-wearing qualities! I normally apply it with the Real Techniques Expert Face Brush and I love the finish. I'm on my second jar of this foundation and I have no plan to switch anytime soon! :)
I just bought this foundation a couple of days ago and I love it! The texture is perfect for my skin type, and the color matches perfectly to my skin. It also has great coverage and great wear. A downside I did find was the fact that during the day, no matter how much I moisturize, my skin appears flaky and dry. I'm not sure if it's the powder I put on top of it or the foundation itself, but it shouldn't turn you away from this product.
Play with it a bit.
I bought this knowing that a lot of people were liking it, but when I got it home and used it I really didn't understand what the big hype was. Now that I have been working with it for a while I have found the right brush to apply it with ( sigma F60) and get a great finish and now I have changed my thoughts. I love it. I would recommend if you don't like how this foundation is working for you, play around with different brushes and find the right one for you.
