Most Helpful Positive Review Love it -- as a setting powder!
I have been using this powder for years, I feel that it works great. I personally use it as a setting powder in conjunction with my Revlon foundation, and it works really well. I would not use it alone however, because much like any powder, it's not a miracle product. Makeup is best done in stages/layers, and there isn't any one product by itself that will make a tremendous difference--it's a combination of multiple items, in my opinion. It's a very lightweight powder, and for my skin tone (extremely pale), it matches well.
Overall---a good buy!
Most Helpful Critical Review Allergic reaction
I was looking for a good replacement for my Mac Studio Fix Pressed Powder foundation since I had no desire to spend $28 every time I needed a new compact. After searching numerous forums, Revlon ColorStay Pressed Powder was the most suggested/reviewed product as an equivalent replacement. While the powder went on beautifully, my face began breaking out within 3 hours of application. (This was the only new thing introduced, be it makeup, food, soap, etc.) I attributed it to hormonal acne and tried it again a few days later--same results. Two weeks after the initial application and I'm left with horrible Cystic Folliculitis all over my face. My forehead is riddled, my cheeks to my "sideburns" are awful, and my nose to my chin is so splotchy! It's horrible!!! Revlon is also one of the major "drugstore" makeup brands (along with L'Oreal) that has so many reactions to their products. Just please be careful what you put on your face!

on my face
So glad took a chance on this!
Pj from SRQ
My Clinique powder was not keeping oil at bay and lasting the way I wanted. I was looking for something without fragrance that wouldn't clog pores and took a chance on this on a whim. So glad I did. Lasted all day, looked smooth, reduced appearance of lines and pores and felt like was not wearing any at all. Winner!

Best Satin Pressed Powder
Beauty Freak from Rochester, NY
If you want a satin powder that looks skin like but also can be built to a medium coverage this is the one for you. The formula is velvety smooth and lasts all day. Doesn't sink into fine lines on my face. I will note this does NOT control oil so if you are very oily I would suggest matte powder. But if your main concern is a powder that looks like skin but will not take away from the finish of your foundation but want to set it in place at the same time this is the one for you.
Best pressed powder around
Kimcarso from San Antonio
When I want powder, I use this brand - it covers the shine nicely and seems to last. Plus, the price is definitely right!
Did the formula change?
MakeupJunkie from Indiana
I used to use this all the time for lazy makeup days and never had an issue. I restocked a few months ago and it was powdery and turned peachy on my skin. I've tried a lot of powders since then and I think I've found my replacement with the ulta adjustable coverage powder foundation. I'm not sure if Revlon changed the formula or if I got paler, but the lightest shade of the Revlon colorstay started making my face look like my blood pressure was sky high. That's the only reason for 3 stars.
I love the Revlon products
jm from Franklin,ma
