Most Helpful Positive Review Best Foundation in its price point
I apply this with a damp beauty blender. The coverage is amazing! And if my first layer isn't enough, it's really easy to throw on a second layer. I almost don't need any concealer with this, it's that pigmented. It feels velvety smooth, lightweight, and never cakey, plus it literally lasts all day and still looks fresh at bedtime. The only downside is that I feel like it dries my skin out, which I compensate for by using loads of moisturizer. This might be my new favorite foundation, even with several high end brands in my collection. Good job, Revlon!

I have no idea how this could be branded for Normal/Dry skin. My skin type is combo (dry around nose, and a little dehydrated on my chin) so I assumed this would work well for me, but I was wrong. This foundation sucked the absolute life out of my skin as soon as I applied it. I prep my skin by washing with a gentle cleanser, followed by my standard regimen of treatments & moisturizer, which leaves my skin looking/feeling dewy and hydrated. As soon as I apply this foundation, it looks like I applied it directly to flakey skin (which I did not). Even with a clean, damp sponge, the foundation looks beyond cakey. The only pro I have is that the coverage is halfway decent. It covers my redness and pimples when I have them, but unfortunately it makes my skin look much worse than before I applied it. Will never purchase this again unless it is completely reformulated. All I want is a full coverage, dewy, decent-lasting foundation...evidently this is NOT that product for me! Will be returning to my trustworthy L'Oreal True Match Lumi.

i would recommend this product to anyone with dry skin
hannah from AL - Alabama
i would defintialy recommend this brand to my friends with dry skin because after taking it of your skin is moist and it does not cause you to have rough skin. It is very easy to applie and remove, but i would definatly recommend
I would recommend this!!

It is good coverage however chalky.
LoveIt from Houston
I have tried many drugstore foundations over the years and none compare to this one. It leaves a beautiful finish and lasts all day (with a primer). I'll continue purchasing this as long as they make it!

This foundation says it's for dry skin, so you would think that it's hydrating but it's not. I have normal-dry skin with some very mild oiliness on my nose sometimes. This foundation is drying. It dries in patches under my eyes and on my nose.
But it is long lasting for sure. So what I do is moisturize well, use a hydrating primer underneath, and a hydrating setting spray. And minimal powder.
The foundation is also not great coverage. I have pretty normal skin aside from blemishes here and there but I can see my freckles through this foundation.
I sometimes mix it with catrice HD liquid coverage and it provides more coverage, is less drying, and even more long lasting than either of the foundations on their own. Mixing the two is actually my current go-to.
I'm always trying new foundations looking for a holy grail, this is longer lasting than any other I've tried for sure. If you have oily skin you would probably like it, even though it says it's for dry skin. It's a good every day foundation if you're not going full glam and are okay with blemishes and freckles showing.
Holy grail for 10 years!
Kara from Chicago, IL
I always have this foundation on hand. I try new foundations constantly but nothing compares to this one. I have extremely dry and sensitive skin. With the right moisturizer underneath, this foundation covers everything I need without looking too cakey, and will stay on 24 hours. I hate to admit it, but I've slept in this foundation after a night out and woke-up with it looking near flawless!
I particularly love this foundation in the summer. It allows me to have a glow and also locks in excess oil!
Magan from SC
Wow. This stuff really works... it looks just as good -9 hrs later as it does when I apply it! I have dry skin, and it really did look awesome 👏🏻
Luisa from Smyrna, GA
This is the best foundation I've ever tried! It looks beautiful on my skin and it lasts for a long time.
The makeup works good, but they are not Cruelty Free
grace from Georgia
I love this makeup, but I wish they didn't test on animals & used healthier ingredients. overall, the foundation works great on my dry skin. I gave a 4 die to the animal testing.
My go to for staying power but shade is ehh
Maddie from California
I have combo skin. This has been a go to of mine for a while now. I love how it sits on my skin and it will last me 10 good hours. I can't seem to find a shade with the right undertone for me though. They all seem very pink. I need one with a warmer undertone. I have tried fresh beige and buff.
Best foundation out there!!
grace from Georgia
I have dry and fair skin. I've tried high end foundations and this, by far, is the best! It last all day & provides medium to full coverage. The best part: It doesn't show my pores!
Not Good for Someone with Dry Skin
Mar from Wichita, Kansas
For me, this foundation didn't work well for my skin especially in the winter months. It creates a matte look but dries out the skin to do so which creates settling in fine lines. It also comes off very easily so i would recommend using a setting spray.
TOTAL DUPE TO ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLEWEAR
Alexis from Morgantown, WV
ITS A TOTAL DUPE FOR ESTÉE LAUDER DOUBLEWEAR!!! I'm a total sucker for the doublewear foundation, but it gets expensive! So if you're looking for a product that'll do an amazing job for a good price this is it! it doesn't oxidize or anything! i will probably use this for the rest of my life.
Product is great
Nela from Cleveland, OH
I have very oily skin that breaks out very easily. i have tried the $50 foundations which break me out just as bad. I have been using this foundation for 3 months and my it controls the oil on my face really well. It has already really helped clear up my breakouts. I dont think in 33 years my skin has ever felt this smooth. Foundation is highly breathable and comfortable to wear.
I love how much this foundation blends into my face.

So easy to apply

This foundation has been my go to since I was young. When that formula changed A while back I was a little bit bummed but it still is my favorite. I mix the color 180 and also mix with a 180 in the combination because it's a little more on the pink side. I still love it but you definitely have to use a primer before hand. I am fair skin with neutral undertones
You HAVE to moisturize before using this
Sarah from New York
I have normal/dry skin and this foundation is okay, It's actually quite confusing on why it's made for "normal/dry skin". You HAVE to moisturize before this, and I use a illuminating primer after the moisturizer. It does last a decent amount of time (like 8+ hours)
I really love this but....
Corralove from Apple valley
This is a great foundation. I have oily skin and I break down most foundations, even high end ones like Mac Pro long wear 24 hour(total waste of space). This one how ever goes on great. It's has amazing stay power. It's not to drying and it amazingly doesn't make me get oily. No transfer either. My only issue is that it made me break out at week two of wearing it. Not a little break out, it was major break out. Idk what's in this but it clogged my pores. Other than I really liked this. I hope they can fix this for us people who have this issue. I'm back on the search. P.s I will keep this for the occasional days when I need stay put make up!
Laura from Maryland
I use as a full face foundation.
Beautiful Glowy Coverage
K from AZ
I love this foundation - I work long shifts and like to have makeup that lasts all day. I love the finish of the foundation - it does not sink into my lines or pores. It also does not irritate my skin it feels very hydrating throughout the day.
Better than a lot of high end foundations
KNJ81 from Elk Grove
I love trying new foundations. Revlon Colorstay is an oldie but a goodie. I've used Colorstay on and off for the last 10+ years. I use to use the matte formula but as I've gotten older I switched to the normal/dry skin formula. The foundation stays put all day. The coverage is good. Doesn't break me out. Doesn't settle into my lines and pores. For the price and performance it outshines many high end foundations I've tried.
Savannah from Connecticut
I bought this, because I head KathleenLights on YouTube rave about this, and how she loves it so much. Tried it out, and it's just okay. I used a sponge on one side and a brush on the other, and the sponge side Looks better. It reminds me of the "L'Oréal Fresh Wear Foundation", with the very liquid like consistency. Seems long wearing, but I have not worn it multiple times yet.
Wow this is amazing
Alogg from NJ
I usually use a $39 foundation and honestly am always looking for a cheaper high coverage one for days where I don't have to be blatantly in front of a bunch of people presenting. This stuff is so amazing I may never revert back to the high end stuff!!! Goes on so smooth and makes my skin look perfect all day!!!
