I am absolutely crazy about this foundation. It was HOT and STICKY here today, and I washed my car, got water all over me, got all sweaty and gross, but my face still looked ABSOLUTELY PERFECT!

When I finished with the car, I came back into the house for a shower to rinse off all the sweat, and when I looked in the mirror I was totally shocked. My face still looked very even and fresh.

I officially declare this my HG foundation!

Colorstay definitely stays and they have a decent color selection...the only thing about applying it is you have to move fast because it sets very quickly and it's pretty matte. I've even used it without setting it with any powder and it stayed put and looked very matte.

I used to use this years ago and although it did control the shine, my pores were clogged and the makeup didn't wash clean. I wish there was a foundation out there that controlled oil just as good as this Revlon one, but was water soluable.

yeah, that's the only bad thing about the Colorstay...becuase it's a liquid foundation, the only way it stays put is because it's alcohol based. So it's not the greatest if you're sensitive at all when it comes to makeup

I have had bad reactions to MAC Studio Fix, Clinique, Lancome, and Cover Girl (ick!) foundations.

Is this a real thick foundation? It sounds like it works really well.

It comes in a pump bottle. I don't recommend the regular Revlon Colorstay...it's too thick and too difficult to blend.

They just came out with blushes. I finally wrote a review. I think they're great.

I wear the shade called "Buff", and I think there is one shade lighter than Buff. I'm fair but not necessarily pale, so maybe the lightest one would be what you're looking for. The Buff seems to go on a little lighter than it looks in the bottle, which is a good thing in my case.

Untill I discoverd BE, Revlon colorstay was my foundation of choice. Actually, Its all I ever wore for years. I have to say I really do like this foundation even though its a liquid. It covers up so well. When I was in high school, I had a lot of pimples, But with the colorstay, My face looked flawless all day!

If I use the mineral foundation on its own it doesent look so good, But if I use mineral veil it looks pretty good. I live in Florida where the summer is almost unbearable, I used to hate that cakey feeling when I would get sweaty,it's really uncomfortable. Lisa
