“I had this in combo to oily skin in the color natural...”

Written on: 06/03/2014 by AlonsoWoodward (1 review written)

I had this in combo to oily skin in the color natural beige and I don't like the way it looks it definitely doesn't leave a flawless finish like it says I found that if I put it on and then try to wash it off it looks okay but you shouldn't have to do that! It doesn't add a lot of coverage and it makes it look like there's makeup on the skin. It makes your skin look like a mess with makeup cakey all over and pimples still showing! Ugh dont know how everyone loves this. I would've loved if I… Read Full Review

“AMAZING”

Written on: 22/12/2013 by tippyb23 (1 review written)

This product is amazing!! Being a woman of color it is hard finding a makeup that will match my complexion, but this does the trick by far!! I also have oily asking but the best thing to do is just blotch when u get oily. I only blotch about 1-2 times a day and I'm good for the rest of the day. The coverage is flawless and this is the only makeup I will ever buy seriously… Read Full Review

“Lasted 19 hours in 45 degree heat!”

Written on: 22/01/2013 by reanspeaks (1 review written)

After hearing great things from Youtubers and fellow bloggers about this foundation, I thought I'd give it a try. Testing it on a 45 degree heat (or 113 Fahrenheit), and wearing it for 19 hours straight - it definitely lasted on my face for that long! The only problem I found with this is the lack of oil control. Though I purchased the range for combination/oily skin, I still had a constant shine over my face.

Hi,

I tried this foundation in 45 degrees Celsius (ie 113 Fahrenheit) and it still stayed on!
I'm also going through the winter months at the moment and this foundation has survived through half a box of tissues on my nose!

I haven't tried the Maybelline Fit Me yet, but this Revlon foundation is definitely a great long lasting option!

“Best drug store foundation out there!”

Written on: 16/01/2013 by Crazyblonde (1 review written)

You have no I dea how surprised I was with the quality of this foundation. I have incredibly oily skin, and usually I have to reapply foundation bronzer and powder about two hours after I put it on. I've tried tons of products, both drug store and high end, and honestly, this foundation works better than all of them for me. My previous foundation crush was NARS Matte Finish, but at $40 bucks a bottle, I wasn't crazy about repurchasing. Plus I was still reapplying makeup every couple hours. So I… Read Full Review

“Lovely”

Written on: 23/04/2012 by thescreamingpanther (5 reviews written)

I decided to branch out from my usual foundation - I was tired of it feeling too greasy and heavy. I read some reviews and decided to try Colorstay. It was a little more expensive than my usual, but at £12 it's still a cheaper than many others - and definitely value for money! It feels really light, and blends really well with my skin tone. It's definitely the best foundation I've used. My skin has a tendency to be quite dry, and all the foundations I've tried so far have only highlighted the… Read Full Review

“Revlon Colorstay :(”

Written on: 03/11/2011 by SweetCheek (1 review written)

im very disappointed in this product, i heard such good reviews on this product so i decided to go to the shop and purchase this. The proce was very high for a drug store foundation. it cost me £12.50, and what a waste of money it was, i still got more than half the bottle left, this foundation smell was horendous, very chemicalfied, the coverage was ok however by the end of the day it did tend to become very oily, and my face looked grey. i will not be getting this product again. And will… Read Full Review

“I have tried so many make up lines and I ALWAYS come...”

Written on: 01/05/2011

I have tried so many make up lines and I ALWAYS come back to this brand...some reviewers say it is blotchy and I will say that you must put on a moisturizer first or it will "grab" and won't let go. I use a sponge applicator to apply my foundation with and it is awesome! It is liquid which I like as you can smooth it where you need it. Just remember, it WILL stay wherever you leave it, hence the name "Colorstay"! Be sure to blend and don't be afraid to apply more if you need it after… Read Full Review

Written on: 04/08/2010

I bought this foundation after hearing it lasted a long time while giving medium to full coverage, (a must for me as I'd used foundations in the past that just started to "slide" off my face after just two hours...not nice). I bought and used the oily/combination skin version in and I have to say, I haven't looked back since! By far the best out of the foundations I've tried in the past. Here's an overview:

Pros:
- Lasts AGES: OK, it started fading a little with me after about 5-6 hours, but… Read Full Review

I found this review very helpful because I think I have nearly a whole Boots drawer full of various brand foundation and all of them are rubbish! I have oily skin, but good skin and not one of them do what they say on the tin. All make my skin oily within 1/2 and look caked. so thanks to the Review I have just been and spent a huge £ 11.99 and lets see, just put it on and looking good so far.

After 3 years of trying a variety of foundations from different brands, i wasn't satisfied with any of them.I don't usually use Revlon but as i have an oily T-zone and dry skin around my cheeks i thought i'll try the Revlon Colourstay oily/combination type.Also, as the foundation is full coverage i thought it might cover up the redness around my nose and cheeks-which it has!
I payed £11.99 for the foundation which in my opinion is good value.
On the other hand,the foundation bottle has an open… Read Full Review

I often find it hard to find a foundation that does exactly what i want. I want a long lasting foundation, that looks flawless and is the right colour for my skin. The Revlon colorstay foundation is great!! I have used so many and am usually disapointed. I have used benefit, bare escentuals and many more.I am half egyptian, so am quite tanned and can never ever find the right colour but the true beige colour is perfect for me. My skin isnt bad but i have slight redness on my cheeks that i can… Read Full Review

Written on: 31/03/2010

So I tried this after not having much luck finding a drugstore foundation that will last a day in the Australian summer. Heard so many good things on the internet and decided to go for it, despite the price ($38AU, fortunately I got it 15% off, but still).

Firstly, colours were difficult. I have a fair complexion with more of a yellow undertone, so went for sand beige 180. It's not an exact match but is close enough. However I was impressed that they have it for oily/combo and normal/dry… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2010

This product was pretty good for a drugstore foundation. Although, their color selection was very limited (I couldn't find a shade that was light and yellow enough for me) so I couldn't find my shade. This foundation was extremely thick so application is hard because you need to work fast with it or it'll dry up on your skin. You need to blend it really good because it won't look similar to your skin. Coverage is good. I don't like how the foundation comes in a open top bottle (It pours out so… Read Full Review

After 20 years of using Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation, I started to notice that (as I approach 40)it was drying my skin out and I need a change. I have been on the search for 2 years now and purchased everything from "high-end" to "low-budget". Nothing has worked until now. Revlon Colorstay Foundation is amazing! It has great coverage and stays on all day (more than 16 hours) until you take it off. No touch-ups needed… Read Full Review
