Most Helpful Positive Review Colorstay Whipped Fans Rejoice!
If you were a fan of Revlon's Colorstay Whipped Foundation, you must try this! According to Revlon, this is the same formula rebranded & repackaged from the original jar to a squeeze tube. I was heartbroken when Colorstay Whipped was discontinued. It was my holy grail drugstore foundation, & superior to the liquid version IMO. I am ecstatic to see this product now available! For those who never tried it, it is a lightweight, creamy formula with medium to full coverage, & a soft matte finish. I have combo-oily skin with acne scars, hyperpigmentation, & some melasma. It gives me the coverage I need for these issues. This foundation stays put throughout the day on me, even in high temps & some sweating. It also resists creasing in my smile lines & between my eyes. I'm a more neutral/olive NC20 & Sand Beige is a better match for me than Buff (too light & yellow on me). I did see there's an in-between shade 170 Light Ochre (or similar name), but it's not widely available in the U.S. It's better than most high end brands I've tried, but 4 stars because Lancome, Barepro & Shiseido UV out-perform it for me. But for a drugstore brand, it's truly impressive & saves me $ on my high end formulas because I get to save them for fancier occasions. Thank you, Revlon!!!!
Most Helpful Critical Review Only MATTE
I had high hopes for this product. However if you are looking for coverage, then this is NOT for you. For my full coverage friends out there this is not it. The staying power is very good and yes it does keep you MATTE which is a plus. If you have great looking skin and your only problem is oil then this is for you,
The texture is good and moussey quite thick but no full coverage not even close. I prefer a full coverage foundation all the time. Another good thing is this doesn't cake up and it doesn't look unnatural on the skin. Once you have it on it looks nice and skin like. However I have other foundations that will do that and have better coverage so for the price and the NOT FULL COVERAGE this is going back, Sorry Revlon.

Good nearly full coverage drugstore foundation
Jeanie from Indianapolis, IN
Overall, I'm pleased with the product, given the price. I normally use Estee Lauder Double Wear, but the Ulta I went to didn't carry EL, and I did not want to pay $40+ for a foundation I did not love. It went on very nicely. I use a flat topped foundation brush, and it gave a good finish. It is nearly full coverage. The formula is a little too creamy, so that when it will transfer a good amount throughout the day. Would be nice to have more color options. I got lucky and what I picked matched well.

Smells horrible and is ver patchy.
Don't waste your money!!!
Erica from Washington, pa
This is by far the worst foundation I have ever tried! It's a gross muddy feeling! It hard to cover your face because it doesn't stick to it. I started breaking out after using it for two days!
Sallie the Chaos Coordinator from Sherman, IL
With COVID going on, I am not involved in as many meetings or really going anywhere. I felt as if I was wasting my foundation (my go-to is Estee Lauder and it can be pricey). I wanted to try a "drugstore" brand to see if I could find something comparable in coverage but far less in cost. Honestly I was not expecting great things (my friend have called me a makeup snob, lol). HOWEVER, this foundation is WONDERFUL! The coverage is fantastic, it goes on smooth and blends so well. I will absolutely be adding this to my makeup collection.
My holy grail foundation
Maya from Texas
I would give this stuff 10 stars if I could. I am somebody who deals with oily, acne prone, sensitive skin and let me tell you this stuff hasn't made me break out once! I also deal with acne scars. This foundation isn't full coverage but it gives my skin a flawless finish that looks natural. Literally lasts ALL DAY. I've worn this for more than 12 hours and still looked good! Definitely recommend!!
Probly the best drugstore foundation
Gmoney from USA
Good for oily skin. Matte finish. It's super think consistency which I like. It could be a bit easier to blend though. Lasts a good amount of time.
Em from wisconsin
This foundation was terrible on my skin. I have skin more on the drier side. It was not even close to full coverage, it did not sit on my skin well. I tried a brush and a sponge both looked terrible. It did not want to blend on my nose and was just cakey. I would not recemond this one.
better than expensive foundations
gabby from massachusetts
I will never buy another foundation, the one problem i found is that by the end of the day it starts to come off a little bit but other than that it's amazing
Pevans from Florida
Great product, gentle on skin and long lasting. I am reviewing this product and giving my honest review as a sample sent from crowdtap

I'm not a heavy full coverage foundation person. But it's awesome
Kitty Kat from OH
This is a great full coverage foundation at a great price. Covers all my imperfections!
Hannah F from New Hampshire
I love the light, creamy formula. But this is supposed to be a full coverage foundation and it was more light to medium than anything. Not only did this foundation not have the coverage I was looking for with the initial application, but it also was not buildable with more product.
Jess from Des Moines
This is the best drugstore foundation for oily skin. I love this so much and it's the best version of the ColorStay foundations to date. I use this all year round, every season, and it never fails me. I also use the ColorStay powder on top of it
I didn't love this one...
Season from Pennsylvania
I am a full coverage girl and honestly, this one didn't have that for me. I wanted to like it but I couldn't. The formula was soft and creamy and smooth but it was pretty much non existent coverage wise. Just wasn't for me. Someone who likes a lighter coverage might really like this though.
Works better than high end foundation
Erica from Michigan
I think this product works great. It covers all my skin imperfections, stays matte, and stays on my face all day. I have VERY oily skin and this stuff works better than the Urban Decay All Nighter foundation in my expierence.
Rebekah from TX
I love this foundation, I go off and use others but always come back to this one.
I would buy again

I love this tube dispenser so much better than the push top button dispenser !!
My new favorite foundation!
Steph s from Ny
I usually go for foundations that look natural. And this one is a perfect one, it has coverage all while still looking natural and it is so light weight !
I love how creamy it is
Chel from Wisconsin
Love it's consistency. Goes on nice on older skin. Wish it was more full coverage. Says full coverage but I think more like medium. I love it
Sarah from Bay Area, CA
I had used the original Color Stay years ago, and liked it for the most part, but wanted something more full coverage to help cover my rosacea and acne. However, I also wanted something more natural looking, compared to my Estee Lauder Double Wear. Happy to say this is it! It's totally buildable and blenable, but still looks like skin. Plus, even though it is not completely full coverage, I like how some of my skin is visible through the makeup. It looks way more natural than other full coverage cakes. The only reason I gave it 4 stars is because it does wear off somewhat during the day. But to be fair, with my oily skin, this lasted longer than most!
I LOVE it
Mels from South Carolina
I have always used the color stay medium coverage formula and wanted to try the full coverage. I am soooo happy I did. The coverage really does last all day. I don't traditionally use and setting spray for daily use and this formula really doesn't require it. I will definitely purchase again. FYI, a little goes a long way!
