Most Helpful Positive Review Great Lightweight Foundation
I decided to give this product a try and overall, I actually think it is a good foundation but that is because this foundation fit my needs. I don't need or want a thick, deep pigmented foundation to cover my face. I like a light weight foundation, that is more creamy rather than liquid or a paste, that is giving a light to medium coverage (depending on how much you use) for a natural look. If that is what you like or what you are looking for, this foundation could be for you. There are a number of shades to choose from so color matching shouldn't be an issue. I think I could stand to go a shade or two darker, which I am going to try, but even with the color I chose, I felt like I got a decent coverage. I just had to use a little more of the product. When I change my color, I am sure I'll use less product. For application, I use a foundation brush, and I felt like the application was super easy. The foundation glides right on, and blending with my brush was just as easy as with my make up bag staple foundation, Thrive's CC Cream. The foundation itself doesn't feel heavy on my skin. It feels like I am not wearing anything at all, which I love. I saw some reviews that said the make up was visible in pictures. I have to assume those people were not properly color matching for themselves or they just didn't do a very good job applying because my face was flawless. I would not be leaving my house otherwise! I set this foundation with Revlon's new Candid Setting Powder (which I will review separately) which definitely amplified the foundation. I always use a setting power and I was happy with this one. My makeup lasted the entire night and not once did I feel like my face was cakey, oily, that the make up was coming off or peeling, etc. I felt great the entire night and I thought I looked great as well. Overall, I would definitely recommend this foundation to anyone who likes this type of foundation.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wouldn't repurchase unless on sale
I applied this with a sponge because a brush was a nightmare. The coverage is super sheer regardless. I have rosacea and acne scarring and this didn't cover unless I layered it. When I layered it, I got medium coverage. I don't over saturate my sponge either. This can cling to dry patches and look cakey. For me, my dry area is around the creases of the nostrils and it would cling to it and this is prior to powdering. I have to set this with a powder because it has poor lasting time. I'd say that if you don't powder, it will start breaking down around 4-5 hour period. If you powder, mine last about 6-7 and its in the starting to break down phase, so you'll need to re-powder. lightly touching my skin, my foundation came off. I went to kiss my boyfriend and the foundation came off of my nose onto him and he saw where mine was missing and felt it on him. I'm pale and he's medium dark, so that was funny seeing a circle on his nose. Thankfully, it was at home. I ordered this off here when it was fresh and new and saw that it was on sale at the time for like maybe $5 and it looks like its back up to its full price. Not worth the money. The only way I would repurchase this is if its on sale again and I keep it in a makeup drawer for a filming day where my lights will make my skin look better or for when I run out of my better foundation and even then, I'd look for other affordable options.

NOT FOR ACNE PRONE SKIN!!!
Aye from Durham NC
This foundation, unfortunately, is not for acne prone skin. I wanted to like this so much but I just hated it. It feels like sticky glue on the face. It broke me out in all the creases of my face (smile lines, between the brows, etc). This was extremely frustrating as I was looking for a light foundation that wouldn't make feel like I needed even MORE concealer. Not a fan.
Lina from New York, NY
This foundation is truly amazing! One of the best drugstore foundations that I have used. It leaves a natural lasting finish. Makes your skin look perfect, sort of your skin but better look. Definitely recommend it and the price is great.

I paid $40 for the new it cosmetics foundation and I gotta say this one works soooooo much better on my skin i stopped using the it cosmetics your skin but better.
I keep buying it, it's so good
Jess from Tampa, Fl
This a perfect foundation for covering up redness but still looking natural and not too full coverage. Also it's one of the only foundations that stays put and doesn't break up on my oily skin
Bex from Los Angeles
Great coverage and it lasts really well. I love the packaging too you're able to get every pump
Best drugstore foundation
Annaxox from IL
I love this foundation in the matte and glow version. I use the glow version because I have more dry skin. The color Buff is the most amazing color match for me even better than high end foundation which never nail that beige kind of olive fair natural undertone. Also love the ingredients and that there is no SPF. Amazing product. Really appreciate that Revlon kept the same shade Buff from their colorstay collection. It blends easily, looks flawless, and has medium coverage and looks so natural. Lasts all day.
Great everyday foundation
Danny from Pittsburgh pa
This is really good natural everyday foundation. Works good when my face was a Lil oily and when it was flaky and dry. It has decent coverage and the lightest color matched my pale skin.
CFA from California
The formula feels super heavy and the coverage is kind of blotchy. Not noticeable from a distance but up close looks weird.
Just what I needed
msellennc from NC
Very smooth application.
DONT DISCONTINUE THIS!!
Tomadeupjazz from AZ
I have a feeling they'll eventually discontinue this and THEY DONT NEED TO. Keep it around, just like the revlon colorstay has been around for years!! This foundation is soooo good for everyday. It's extremely lightweight, can't tell I'm wearing anything. Perfect amount of coverage (for me) to not be too made up but to definitely have perfect looking skin, when I set with powder she lasts all day and I don't get greasy with it. It does not fade, and does not breakdown all horribly. It looks so natural and skin like. I really didn't know I would like this as much as I do. Will definitely repurchase
Jess from Ohio
I got this free in a PR package. It makes your skin flawless!!! But it only has a 2-3 hour wear which is disappointing.
I would buy this again!!
Cutiepie from Birmingham Al
I love this product!!
It's just okay
littlepinkpwnie from Carlisle, PA
It lives up to it's claims. I'd agree that it's medium buildable coverage. I'd say it's one step up from a tinted moisturizer, it didn't dry out or look cakey at all. I took two stars off for the deplorable shade range. Why is there ONE deep shade? Come on Revlon you can do better than that.
So light and easy to use
sadandsweaty2000 from San Rafael, Ca
I love this foundation. It stays on all day and doesn't get weird and oxidize-y when I sweat. The color range is great and I always find the perfect shade for me. I like that it doesn't make my skin like super matte or super glossy, it's just a nice natural finish. It has never caused me to breakout. One of my favorite things about this foundation is that it is super easy to apply, some foundations need to be applied specifically with a sponge or a brush or they get weird and streaky, but this one can be applied any way and it still looks good. I REALLY WISH IT HAD SPF IN IT!!!!!! That's the only thing that stops me from wearing this every day, because I'd rather just put one thing on my skin in the morning than multiple, but when I wear this I always have to apply sunscreen under.
Lora from NYC
Matte finish that's almost skin like. Really pleased with it.
Sela from West Covina, Ca
Was O.K. I wouldn't buy it on purpose again. It is nice for a natural dewy/wet look. But because I prefer full coverage and a matte finish I personally did not care for the product. Does NOT do well with a beauty blender. Got all soaked up, worked better with a brush.
My new FAVORITE!
ReviewTime from OR
This. Holy grail. 🙌🏼 it's light to medium coverage when I use my R.T. Sponge. Feels so lightweight on the skin. Going to be perfect for summer. It has a beautiful natural finish giving a nice heathy appearance. It makes my skin look so good on camera too. 5 ⭐️'s from me. Please Revlon keep making this gorgeous foundation.
MrsH_11 from Texas
I have a lot hyperpigmentation And 2 pumps covers most of it, so I'm sure you can build it up nicely. My only problem is that there aren't many deep shades and the few that they have, the undertones are way off. Come on Revlon, you can do way better.
Nursenmom23 from Indiana
Medium to light coverage but it looks amazing! Wasn't sure how I'd like this I am a high end foundation girl but my gold standard was too light for this time of year so I bought this in a mix in shade, but it was too light so I tried it on it's own. It is a perfect match!
A drugstore foundation staple for me
Tre from Maui
Never thought I'd like this foundation as much as I do! Creamy texture that blends out easily, can tend to be a bit thick looking if you use too much so fair warning. Coverage is medium buildable, work in light layers to avoid the "cake face". Stays on comfortably 8 hours for me before breaking down. Great packaging too!! Would give it a 5 if it were not for the
less than 1 ounce of product it provides.
Glox from Miami
Its one of my favorite cheap foundation, it is a bit cakey but some people like that, the only thing i dont like about it is the strong smell, its hard to describe
Not a fan. Glad I got while on deep markdown
rexsgirl from West Virginia
Didn't apply well. Was cakey. Had slip. Light coverage. Just not a fan. I wasn't expecting to be blown away but I was hoping to be able to use for every day.
Great for dry skin
Tiffany from Virginia
I have extremely dry skin. I use lots of moisturizing products and drink water but still have dry texture when using most foundations, especially prestige brands. This foundation provides good buildable coverage without emphasizing the dryness on my face!
I never want to buy another foundation
Liv from Nashville
I have been a makeup lover my whole life and the hunt for foundation has been rough. Most foundations just end up looking so nasty hours later and for ME this is the best wearing foundation I have ever tried. It does give you coverage, I use 120 perfect for warmy neutral folks. It scares me that this is on sale because I can't live without it! I have worn this foundation from 9/10 am until 10pm and it still looks good in person. It will get dewy and a bit shiny so I usually do have to blot but then omg it looks so good all over again. Works amazing with cream products doesn't bunch you can build anything on top of it. Love love love it
