This foundation is just what I have been looking for. I recently went on an expedition to find a new foundation because my Covergirl 3 in 1 oxidizes on me terribly and my blush, also Covergirl, would start to look spotty. I have tried primers and setting powders with different blushes as well. Nothing would prevent the spotty, running blush midday.
I am a very light skin with yellow undertones, but my face and neck are neutral compared to my warm toned body so foundations are difficult to match. My skin type is normal to very little oil on my chin and forehead and very rarely dry, but I also have some hormonal acne. I tried Mayballine: too pink, true match and other "match" foundations: too drying... I have tried many. I recently tried Flower Beauty and though it was a great match for color, it made me break out even more! I really love the Flower products though.
So, I finally tried Revlon ColorStay! I have heard many, many great reviews and so many Youtube videos about the best drugstore foundations, all of which included this. I had to decide between Ivory and Buff, but went with Buff because I tend to pick foundations too light and pinky in the store lighting. Buff is a perfect match and so far, the color truly does last! I don't have to touch this up or re-blend throughout the day! I bought the normal/dry skin type foundation and it is blendable, but yes, work a little faster with it because it will set sooner than the Covergirl 3 in 1. It doesn't aggravate my acne at all, in fact, it is clearing but that is due to cutting out dairy and sugar. I love this even for the warm weather and have decided to switch to Revlon for my foundation, blush, and concealer when I run out of Mayballine age rewind. These are good quality drugstore products, worth the $9!
