This would be my favorite all time drugstore foundation, it is matte & super full coverage, for someone who likes lighter coverage, probably wouldn't be the best for you. I'm pretty fair, and the shades don't work on my skin tone, but you seriously need this foundation.

I love this foundation! It is my go to drug store make up. I have oily skin and it truly stays matte all day. Easy to put on both with fingers and brushes. It is full coverage. I will definitely be stocking up on!

Just bought this yesterday and I love it! The texture is rich a creamy. It's super thick so it's full coverage. It's pretty cheap as well, plus I got it on sale for $3.50. It's such a nice match too. It's about medium to full coverage. I recommend this product a lot.

Price: ????

Coverage: 8/10
I will say, this did give a good amount of coverage, as you can see in the photo it covered up some blemishes on my face rather well.

Look/Feel: 6/10
On the bottle it claims to be lightweight, shine free, and natural looking. I would say 2/3 of these claims are incorrect.

It is a lightweight formula and blends very well into the skin.

However, it did not cover up any shine of my face, it actually made it look and feel even more greasy than w/o make-up.

As for the natural looking claim, you can kind of tell in the photo that it left my skin looking like I had makeup caked onto my face, when it reality I had used a pea sized (or smaller) amount of the product. It did feel pretty soft though

Overall: 7/10
It is a pretty good product, and I will probably continue to use the bottle I was given, but it is not something I will buy again. I would much rather use my CoverGirl 3-in-1 liquid foundation.

I would say that this foundation is OKAY. (It may be important to know that I have a dry skin type!) This Stay Matte Foundation is somewhat comparable to Revlon's Colorstay Whipped foundation in that it is a light, mousse like, formula that provides buildable coverage. Even the scent of it reminded me of the Colorstay foundation. It provides medium to full coverage, and really packs a punch despite it's petite packaging. A small amount of this really went a long way with me. I chose to apply this foundation using the warmth of my fingertips to help it blend out easier. I personally, would not recommend using a brush with this formula.

With all that said, the reason I said this foundation was 'okay' is because of my dry skin. It took a good bit of effort for me to completely blend this out, and it seemed to accentuate my dry patches. I have high hopes that use of the Stay Matte Primer beforehand will help diminish these problems though! I would definitely recommend giving the Stay Matte Foundation a try to see how it works for you!

Wasn't bad for drugstore foundation. Affordable, good variety of shades, it was oddly drying to me or caked and that usually never happens to me bc I have very oily skin, it was pretty thick feeling to me personally

This foundation is great if you love a super super thick very full coverage. It's almost cakey on your face. It's a matte finish. I like to mix it with other foundations that aren't as full coverage. I've used this for years and always have a tube in my makeup bag.

Me personally don't like this product there's definitely tons of product in the container I just found myself looking cake face when I wear it if the product was slightly thinner than I don't think that I would have such an issue although the colors are definitely a great Variety

Was not impressed with the shade range, every shade had red undertones. No choices for people with darker skin. The foundation itself was difficult to blend and did not stay Matte for more than an hour. The texture was bad. I would not recommend this to anyone.

This foundation is great but the shade range is awful. You have to mix with darker foundation to get it your color….id rather just buy a different foundation that cares about catering to people of darker skin shades. I will not be repurchasing or recommend to anyone

I have oily/ acne prone skin, did this break anyone out?
Is it full coverage? Does it cover all redness?

Best way to apply? I tried to apply with my sedona lace flat top brush, which I use for most of my foundations and get amazing results, however when I applied it, it was super cakey
