Natural tan used to be My shade but surprisingly after years of using this shade, I finally noticed it was a tad dark or either my skin lightened for some reason. I visited the hub and and saw that there was a huge make up price reduction. I found the last colorstay foundation but in the shade golden beige and it was for Combination /oily skin. I still bought it.. And what an amazing decision. This color suits me to perfection. The formula is richer and gives me a flawless finish. It mattifies without drying out my skin or giving me that cakey look.

I'm quite taken back as I have relatively dry skin and this foundation still suits my skin. I've gotten quite a few compliments even from my husband, who is always oblivious to anything make up related lol.

I must mention that I visited Revlon counters at Edgar's prior to this purchase asking for advice and samples but as usual was told I couldn't get a sample because there were no containers to put it in. Wow, you wouldn't believe how often I was told that.. Which is why I'm over the moon that I found the perfect shade all by myself.

This was my very first foundation when I started using makeup.i have used many brands since but now I've gone back to using colorstay because it does the job beautifully and is not that expensive.i use the one for normal to dry skin as I have dry skin .it gives me a nice Dewey look which I lurrrvvvv.

The formula is rich and creamy .it is easily applied and disappears into my skin, giving me great coverage and a very natural look.

It's long lasting, doesn't transfer or fade . It looks great from the time i apply it till it's time to take off . One layer works for me but if you need more coverage ,it's buildable and won't give you that caked face look .

I highly recommend this foundation.

Ladies I have to state this first - I'm a proudly Revlon supporter! 90% of my make-up products are from Revlon. In terms of price and quality, Revlon are the best. I do not wear foundation or make-up for that matter everyday, but when I do I only wear foundation from the ColourStay range. I normally do not require to use a lot of the product, but my face will still look flawless!

I usually use the Mac Pro longwear foundation, but I was looking for something cheaper. The Revlon foundation is completely full coverage, and it lasts for the duration of the time you have it on. I loved it because it went on very even and even as I added highlighter and concealer, it remained well blended without any cakiness. I now use it for my everyday makeup, and I strongly recommend it.

relaunched with a pump

And so the packaging with the long awaited pump was launched about 2 months ago in SA. We've only been asking for a pump like forever, and it's only taken Revlon 3 years to respond (I believe this was launched with a pump in Australia about 3 years ago.) Anyhow, the pump just makes this product that much more appealing as dispensing it is now much more sanitary and you can dispense exactly the right amount.

This always used to be my HG foundation but Revlon has tinkered with the formula and shades over the years and after much trial and error with finding a shade match, I very reluctantly had to part ways. I switched to EL Double Wear (at twice the price and also sans pump). The new formulation no longer contains Softflex and the shade range has been tweaked (no longer has Golden Beige which suited me perfectly!) But I was soooo excited when I discovered that it now has a pump, that I decided to relook the situation! And I'm so glad I did. I am now matched to the shade True Beige and the formula is very similar to the fail safe formula I remember. It doesnt dry as quickly as I remember on application and the coverage can be built up or sheared out. I love that it doesn't transfer, lasts all day, is easily removed with pre- cleansing oil, and keeps the oilies at bay all day. And the price for a foundation that ticks all those boxes makes it hands down the best value 'foundation that money can buy . I alternate foundations daily depending on my skin concerns but this is definitely my HG foundation. I'm so glad that we've been reunited :)

When I was still into full coverage, this was my go-to foundation. The coverage is amazing. The lasting power is amazing. The finish is gorgeous. It is also very affordable. Why spend more when this foundation can easily compete with any other high-end foundation on the market?

This is my best yet foundation
Haven't come across anything this good
From natural to full coverage
Especially when it comes to the darker skin tones it matches so easily
Is getting a bit pricey now but worth it

This was the the first foundation I found a perfect colour match with (Cappucino) and I haven't looked back since. It truly gives me the flawless finish every single time without fail. It is a permanent feature in my my make-up kit.

I used two bottles of this foundation and I tried both formulations- dry and oily. I liked this foundation however it was not my favourite. It is easy to work with since it is very liquidy, however it dries quicker than most foundations so I found that it is better to work in sections on your face. The coverage is really nice. The only problem I had with it was that it dried out my skin after a while even though I used the one for dry skin. I also didn't like the shade selection. I have a yellow undertone, but the colour buff was too yellow! If you get an exact shade match I think you'll love it! Pretty decent foundation!

This is the one product that I simply cannot go or do without.I use toast,its a lightweight foundation perfect for oily and combination skin.You will forget you wearing a foundation does not clog your pores resulting in a smooth flawless finish.An affordable product for great quality if you compare it with most other foundations.

This foundation simply disappears onto my skin and takes care of any imperfection without being obvious, which is exactly what you want in a foundation. The formula of this foundation is really nice to work with and I find it’s very easy to blend and works great with my beauty blender.

This foundation is great for oily/combination skin and my skin looks absolutely amazing when wearing it. There is no shine or any sign of imperfections. It also lasts me the whole day (even in summer) which is a great plus point as I don’t want my foundation to flake off in the middle of the day.

This foundation really provides excellent coverage, but the only issue I have with it is the bottle. I would have loved a pump to dispense the foundation instead as this controls it a bit better and it’s less likely that I will spill it out (I can be quite clumsy at times).

Purchased this a few times. The colour match was good and although the coverage is good, it is very thick and heavy formula. Also, since using pump action bottles I prefer those by far! This is a bit messy and in comparison and a lot of product that goes to waste (drying out at the end), also I think it oxidizes.
At the moment I'm using Max Factor Age Elixir, nice coverage and thin consistency.
