    The Revlon Colorstay foundation I have is the "24 hour product". That being said, I find this foundation great for coverage but with my oily skin this definitely does not stay for 24 hours.

    This foundation is one of the best I have found without upgrading to the professional makeup. It stays on most of the day, but doesn't feel or look heavy on the face. It never made my face dry or oily, and it looks natural. This makeup covers imperfections better than most others I have used. I usually have a problem finding something that actually covers up blemishes or spots effectively. This foundation does.

    I got this based on the countless reviews and youtube videos raving about how great this was. And it looked pretty good on the videos, and it's a decent product, but I feel that on me it gives a ruddy look to my skin. I do use a primer, so I just don't understand it. Maybe the fact that it's matte makes my skin look dull and ruddy. I don't think I would buy this again.

    I use the oily/combination formula and it is fantastic!! The only downside to this product is the packaging...the glass bottle is lovely but it's a hassle to get the product out.

    This is my "old standby"....I've been using this for years and still love it! Nice light coverage...doesn't clog the pores! SPF of 15 so I'm getting protection when I'm out and about. Just a simple, no nonsense foundation that smooths the skin tones so u don't have blotchiness....love it!

    If you are looking for a foundation with FANTASTIC coverage without being too cakey, this is a good one! It goes on very smooth, and can be applied with fingers for a lighter coverage, or a sponge for areas that need better coverage. It is the kind of foundation you can fall asleep in and wake up with it still on your face and not on your pillow. It has also served me VERY well while on holidays, in the sweaty heat and through dips in the ocean or pool, this foundation stays in place!!
    The downside of this product is its color consistency. I might buy 'nude' one month, and then go to buy 'nude' the next month and they are obviously different pigments, so color matching can be a trial at times. The other downside to this foundation, is that for a smooth application you have to do it before it dries. Once the foundation starts to dry on your face it will become tackier, and will look cakey especially if you apply powder overtop. A primer works beautifully under this product!
    Overall the good outweighs the bad if you are looking for good coverage and don't want to worry about it coming off in the slightest during a concern/camping/night out/big date/hot day etc. With my trouble skin I have been using it for 10 years and even after trying other foundations, I always come back to this one.

    This has been my go-to foundation for so long ! I pick up the Revlon Colourstay over my Mac or UD or Estee Lauder ones almost EVERY day.
    It stays on Beautifulllly and matt and looks so naural. You can layer it on certain spots on your face if you need more coverage or sheer it out very nicely if you want less coverage.

    Great Job Revlon!!

    This is my go-to foundation for all events that last all day and when my make-up needs to match that time duration! I have oily skin and this foundation w/softflex for oily skin works well. There are many shades to choose from and formulations for dry/normal skin as well. The foundation has SPF and does oxidize after 15 minutes. So I would suggest picking one shade lighter so that it finally matches your skin tone. The foundation really does last the entire day and you need a good make-up remover or soap to get it out. However, it doesn't feel heavy at all. Your skin will look natural and flawless. I have tried various application methods including traditional foundation brush (i ended up with too much - cakey look), fingers (difficult to spread and blend because the foundation is quite thick - not runny like others), make up sponge (wasted too much product on the sponge). Finally, I tried using a stippling brush and it worked fantastic! The stippling brush allows me to get a air brush look with very little product (around one pump - oh but the bottle does not come with a bump, which may be difficult for some - works fine for me). The final look is not dewy but it is not very matte. Infact, it is quite natural. This foundation works very well for photoshoots. Try it and you won't go back to another foundation ever!

    I love this foundation its great and full coverage. It is very comparable to a high end foundation. But for a cheaper price!
