Most Helpful Positive Review Great foundation!
Great foundation that lasts a long time. I have "normal" skin and have problems with redness and some acne.
I like the version for normal/dry skin even though I live in Florida and its constantly around 100 degrees and high humidity.

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 bought this as a full coverage foundation for theatre is not full coverage but is medium. Great medium coverage foundation though.
Makeup enthusiasts fav
JennyOinMN from Duluth Minnesota USA 🇺🇸
I am 44 years young and very fair skin with pink undertones. I also have dry skin. I fancy myself what I call a makeup enthusiast and collector. My collection of products is extensive and my knowledge/experience with makeup is thorough. I have tried many many foundations over the years. Drug store, midi and high end. Revlon Colorstay is literally the best foundation for me. It's 24 hour wear, it's buildable, it's affordable, the shade match for me is perfection (I mix in the summer when my tone changes a little), it buffs into the skin seamlessly and sets (I hate foundations that never dry down!), the finish is perfect, no oxidation, minimal transfer, stays on your face through crazy face sweating, heat and humidity, tears and even exuberant sexy time - it's my ride or die, never disappoints me, always looks great foundation. Reading some of the reviews here and I see I'm not the only one. The ColorStay concealers and pressed powders is also fantastic and always dependable by the way. I hope this stuff never goes away and/or the formula doesn't change because out of my many recommendations on specific makeup products tried and tested, Revlon Colorstay foundation is really and truly holy grail status.
I aways go back to this one
KimChm from Portage, Mi
I really do love this foundation and have repurchased it many times. It has been a top seller for years for a reason! I am 48 with normal to dry skin. I want a foundation that I can put on in the morning and know that it will stay put all day without creasing, wearing off or breaking apart in funny ways. I do try new some foundations (both drugstore and high end), but I always go back to this one. I have dark brown hair, brown eyes and fair skin with a neutral undertone. Shade 150 Buff matches me perfectly. It is not too pink or too yellow and most importantly, it doesn't oxidize on me. The only negative is that it is not completely transfer proof, but honestly, few foundations truly are. This has been a tried and tried foundation in my make up bag for years!
I keep buying it

This is my all-time favorite foundation. I use it over Tarte Poreless Primer and my skin looks flawless all day.
My favorite drugstore foundation
Emily from North Attleboro, MA
No matter what foundations I try, I always find myself coming back to the Revlon color stay. The coverage is buildable, the finish is skin-like. I couldn't recommend it more. The shade Nude is absolutely perfect for me and I really love this foundation.
I wouldn't buy this again
Marisa from Washington
It has a pretty finish and is pretty at first but I shined the light from my phone and it has kinda like sparkles in it as if it was loose highlighter in the foundation I don't know don't dig it
LISAD from WV
No matter what foundation I buy or the pri$e . This one is my HOLY GRAIL all time FAV I don't know why I even bother trying the more expensive ones ! Well done revlon. I'm not by any means an influencer but I surely do recommend this to my close friends and family
Beats high end and other drugstore foundations
MakeupMama from Texas
I have been using this foundation for years and no matter how many others I try out, even expensive ones, I always feel they aren't as good as this one. It is the only one that will last all day and doesn't emphasize any of my fine lines.
angiencs from Maryland
great foundation but i chose the incorrect color, too light for me and it's very difficult to understand the undertones for this line of products. the foundation is a little drying despite the fact that its for dry skin, though it might have been a me problem since i hadn't primed and moisturised when i tried the foundation.
Need help finding the right shade
Allison from OH
I love this foundation! It is perfect for my skin. Lasts all day, even in our hot & humid summers. However, my current shade is too light. I'm using 250 Fresh Beige & I cannot figure out what is 1 and 2 shades darker. I've tried the Oily version in 330 & 350, and they are good matches. But there is no shade to match in the Normal/Dry version. 320 & 330 in Dry are too dark. I prefer the Dry version for winter. Any help would be appreciated. I already have 10 different shades. I can't afford to buy the entire range to find it.
I would buy this product again.
Stephen from Belton, MO
It last all day.
Em from North Carolina
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!!
Cutiepie from Birmingham Al
This is a wonderful foundation!! It stayed on me throughout the day and never changed on me! It stayed on even when I was wearing my mask!! Truly a great product! I love all Revlon products!!
Vicky from Salt lake city Ut
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!
Marisa from Spokane WA
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.
