I have huge problems finding a foundation that doesn't pool into my pores and I haven't even got big pores! I nearly found one the other week, Revlon whipped creme, but doesn't last long.

I'm sure I've tried colour stay before but not the dry skin formula.

This stuff is great, just blends into the skin and cancels out redness etc.I don't even need a concealer.

Goes on well well fingers or using a real techniques dome brush and buffed in.

Put it on this morning and it's still going strong. Not tested it when I've got hot and sweaty yet but so far it's looking good.

For reference the shade Buff is good for NW 20 skinsmile

Just checked again-still good!

Revlon whipped crème is long lasting on most people. If you read reviews, and that's my personal experience. Yet the normal liquid colorstay doesn't last on me. I guess that goes to show that everyone's skin is different!

I love the colourstay last 8+ hours easily if I use a good primer. Also a fellow Buff shade and real technique brush user.

Dame I've used it on and off for the past 20 years and lived in the tropics for several years and good old CS Dry skin was the only foundation that didn't melt there. It's one of the best foundations out there, though a bit retro because it's matte and full coverage. For me, the wearing time is 12+ hrs without primer and I've never found anything more longwearing. People mix it with different things to get different finishes.

I am seriously impressed, it's amazing and no pooling into the pores. I applied using the brush a bit damp so the coverage was a bit less full on.

I have wasted SO much money on foundationsshock

I think sand beige will be my summer colour as slightly darker.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 20:27:02

I used Lanacane anti chaff gel as a primer, it's the same as smash box. Went on a treat!

Do we think this is better than Double Wear?
I have a bottle of Colourstay somewhere,in sand beige.
Like it but keep thinking of going back to Double Wear.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 20:35:15

Oops, sorry I meant MAX FACTOR whipped foundation, can't get Revlon whipped foundation in the UK it's not sold unless on Ebaysad

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 20:35:58

Lots of reviews say it's the same at DW.

GeorginaWorsley Tue 25-Feb-14 20:42:01

Have read some that prefer Double Wear but say revlon as good for the price.
I'm always on a foundation quest.
Have met you on similar threads,dame grin

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 20:57:10

GeorginaWorsley Tue 25-Feb-14 21:14:14

Me too grin

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 21:17:17

So now I'm drooling over the Sigma foundation brush and wondering if it's better than the real techniques one...

GeorginaWorsley Tue 25-Feb-14 22:22:19

Ha!!
I've got Real Tecniques ...

Leviticus Tue 25-Feb-14 22:37:59

OP I bought this exact one yesterday too. It is great.

I'm now imagining you were the woman blocking the Revlon display for aaaages and discussing what shade you should get with your beautiful (but nonplussed) newborn DD.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Tue 25-Feb-14 23:02:10

Ha ha ,it wasn't me,I wish it was me with a new borngrin

Just taken my face off,I swear not a thing shifted all day, tons came off!shock

I like the oily combo colourstay..it does just that

Leviticus Wed 26-Feb-14 07:16:01

Out of interest, what is NW20 ?

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 26-Feb-14 07:28:30

Nw20 is a Mac coloursmile

Leviticus Wed 26-Feb-14 09:43:19

Oh right, ta.

Walnut8 Wed 26-Feb-14 09:58:46

I'm NW20 and use sand beige in the oily/combo skin one - I think the colours are slightly different (pretty sure I have used Buff in the normal/dry but I really don't like this version!!).

This is my every day foundation and although I have tried so many, none for the price are better. ELDW is just wrong on me - too pink (I'm very neutral) and wrong texture, too drying. I don't think it is the same at all. Bad flashback too with double wear.

The only thing better is Lancome teint Idole Ultra, I just wish they would take the SPF out. And it's too exxy for every day, for me.

Yes, I just discovered it recently thanks to that thread on here about Nigella's perfect skin.

I'm using the Revon Colorstay for oily/combination skin in Buff. I've now got my mitts on the Revlon Whipped Creme version from a lovely friend who was in the US and came over and I have to say it's even nicer. Or maybe it's just a bit easier to use as the liquid version is quite runny and there's no pump on the bottle.

I love it. It stays put. It doesn't sink into my giant pores. It is the right colour for me. And it doesn't give me spots which lots of foundations (including Bourjois Healthy Mix) do. I'm converted. Brilliant stuff. Not sure I'll want to wear it in the summer though as it's quite heavy feeling. I might go back to my Boots Botanics BB cream which is also great.

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 26-Feb-14 15:01:36

I might get the sand beige and mix it with buff. NW 20 is slightly too warm for me but near as dammit. The buff seems to cancel out my redness well as it's yellow based.

I wore it again today, it's brilliant sun out and I kept inspecting my skin in mirrors and most importantly the car mirror which shows up all my flaws, it was PERFECT! I'm so pleased with itsmile

DameDiazepamTheDramaQueen Wed 26-Feb-14 15:03:12

I'm desperate for the whipped foundation. Are the shades the same as the colour stay? I'm keeping my eye out on Amazon and Ebay for it.
