I really, really tried to like this product. I tried applying with a beauty blender and with my fingers. Over moisturizer, with no moisturizer. Nothing worked. I just could not get it to look good. It blends horribly and shows every wrinkle and flake I have on my face. If you have dry skin such as myself this product is not your friend! Oh, and those of us lucky enough to be at that stage in life that you have peach fuzz on your face......it will highlight every single hair as if it were a neon sign. What a horrible mess.

I have been trying this foundation in different ways over the last few days and I am still torn about my opinion. I've tried it with primer, without primer, with powder, without powder, and all variables in between. I have very oily, but aging (so dehydrated) skin. I used the Nude color and it is a perfect match on me.

The coverage is nice (medium, but can be layered) and the formula is good - a little goes a very long way, the jar seems like it would last years! But, as soon as I put it on, the foundation sucks all of the hydration out of my skin, leaving it parched and with some flakes. Therefore, I cannot use a powder on top of it, that just makes my skin look really dried out. I've always worn a powder over my foundation so this is sort of odd to me and throws off the rest of my makeup application.

I am still 50/50 with the pros and cons of this foundation. Not sure if I would buy again.

I'm lighter than a NW15. I normally use the MAC F/B in white with a splash of NW15. But, it's a pain to mix my foundation color every morning. So, I've been searching for a foundation that is light, but gives coverage...but most of all matches (or somewhat matches) my skin. Another MUA'r mentioned this one...so, I ran out and got it. Well..I LOVE IT!!! I bought it in the Ivory shade (the lightest Revlon made). It matches my very pale, fair pink undertoned skin pretty good...so I'm thrilled! Not too crazy about the jar packaging...but that's something I can live with.

For the first time in my life, I didn't have to blot my face for over 6 hours. This foundation is quickly becoming a favorite, knocking out my MAC Studio Fix Fluid and also kicking all my BB creams to the curb. This and the original Colorstay Fluid are being used daily now and are the only two foundations that can keep my oils at bay. This specific creme formula works better than anything I've ever tried when it comes to keeping me MATTE, and this stays on for a good 10+ hours.

My skintone is NC25-30, and I chose the shadr Warm Golden. I chose it according to the coordinating color in the fluid that I have, which is also Warm Golden (I can also wear Golden Beige) in the liquid version.

The texture of this is PHENOMENAL. Its light, creamy, and super blendable. Unlike the original Colorstay, this gives you more time to blend before setting so you don't have to work in "sections" like you did with the liquid. The creme is like a soft pudding and it springs back a bit when touched.

The only thing I loathe about this is the packaging. Its classy and feels nice and heavy, but it's also impractical. I would personally prefer a squeezy tube for hygienic reasons.

Price point is a bit high. I bought it for 12 dollars at my local Target. You only get a little bit of product too, LESS than the average 1oz foundation. This one only holds about .8oz, so it's just not much product. Then again, a little goes a long way since there is a lot of coverage with this. Its super pigmented! A light layer gives me medium/full coverage

Overall, I would repurchase. I would label this HG if it wasn't for the bad packaging.

My HG foundation!!! I love love love this foundation! It's not a mousse or cream, it's like a pudding consistency. It goes on super smooth and stays on all day. It's a medium coverage foundation but definitely buildable without looking cakey. It's not oily at all, it's actually has a matte finish. I myself don't use liquid foundation at all because most of the time it shows lines and flaky skin :( and I've tried so many different ones they still don't look good on my skin. It is in a small package but only a little bit goes a long way. But this whipped foundation saved my life I would totally recommend this!


Update*** Wow this stuff is amazing.. Even the hottest days out I don't need to blot my face... I have oily t-zones and the times that I don't use this foundation my face looks so oily after one hour not even exposing to the sun. Will up date again to see if this product breaks me out or not.

I've been using Colorstay liquid for Oily/Combination for years, and would have loved something with a nicer finish for my aging skin. I can't use the Normal formula in the liquid because the Buff color is too dark (yes, there is a difference in color between the two formulations). Unfortunately due to the packaging of the Whipped Creme makeup you can't see what color it is and the Buff shade was the darker shade. I tried it out anyway and was rather disappointed. It certainly doesn't have the staying power of the liquid and it transfers to your sunglasses, phone, etc. Won't be using and certainly won't buy again.

Despite the price and packaging, I LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. I usually can never find the right foundation at the drugstore because I am fair with neutral undertones, and they all oxidize on me. I got this in the color Buff, and it's PERFECT. It looks really natural on me, and lasts a super long time. I nanny and i am outside alot and I get home after working from 9 to 7:30 and it is still on and looks great. HG STATUS, knowing this, it will probably be discontinued! I will probably stock up before i leave for college so I don't have to worry about it!

You definitely need a powder over it though so it doesn't slide around, but once you set it, it doesn't move.

I think I may have finally found my HG foundation!! And I am so surprised it was from a drugstore foundation. I got this because so many people on YouTube were raving about it and I really wasn't disappointed. This stuff is amazing. I wore it today to try it out without a primer to see how long the makeup really stayed on and I was so surprised. I had it on a full 8 hours with it barely diminishing at all. I was also out in the sun running errands and I live in Texas so it was plenty hot. I am sure it would be even better with my primer. The consistency is really amazing feeling. It goes on feeling really thick which I didn't like but finishes into a silky smooth barely there feeling. It really felt like I just had mineral powder on. It covered up my acne scars really well without concealer. I can't say enough about it. The packaging is a little clunky, but other than that...I am in love.

So I was dying to buy this foundation after hearing so many great things about it. The packaging sucks, its a huge container with a small amount of project. I tried out this foundation using a foundation brush once, a stippling brush, and my fingers. All three ways, it sucked. It provided almost NO coverage and caked like no other. Its a gross texture, not light or whipped at all. It smells HORRIBLE as well. I wouldn't reccomend it to anyone.

I bought this foundation after reading many great reviews. I am always on a search for a great foundation. So I bought it and to my surprise I absoultly love it!!!! It goes on so easy with my beauty blender. Does not look cakey and really last thru my 12hr work days. I have very oily skin and it keeps the oil at bay.I usually use ELDW and this even beats that out. I will repurchase this and continue to use it.
