I have really dry skin, and had yet to find a foundation that will not make me look cakey and gross. I feel like a lot of lighter foundations are more thick and cakey and just a different over all texture and usually too pink... so I was hesitant about trying this product- but I'm so glad I did. This is my favorite foundation now. I bought it in the shade 110 porcelain/ivory, and it's deff more like a creamy natural and that's the lightest color out of I think 8 shades (which is the worst part about this foundation in my opinion) but anyways, it's a perfect match. I don't have any demarcation marks on my jaw line or anything from this. I apply a moisturizing serum primer first (Monistat's chafing relief powder gel) and let that dry, then I apply this with my fingers in dots on my face and blend it out with my real techniques expert face brush (8.99 at Ulta - this is seriously the best brush &brand I've ever tried, I like it better than high end, so you should deff try these brushes out too!) and this gives me such a poreless, flawless, dewy satin finish. I have really red skin underneath my makeup and I apply a thin layer of this and then will go over any other spots and may need extra coverage since this is a very light weight foundation, it's also very buildable and full coverage will not look cakey and for the most part you can barely even tell I have makeup on. This foundation really just works for my skin, I can't say enough good things about it. I do wish the jar was a little bigger, I feel like you don't get very much product for the $9 price tag, but none the less- I will continue to repurchase!! I set this with a Mac face powder, but I wish they had a matching powder to go along with this too, that'd be awesome! I would reccomend this foundation to anyone who has dry skin and needs a foundation with more moisture and a natural almost dewy finish!
Smooth and silky, for a while!
Up until recently this was my go-to foundation. I have a skin condition that makes my skin extremely dry and flaky, and this foundation worked very well to hide that--at least for a couple of hours. After that, my skin would turn into the Sahara Desert. I loved how smooth this felt going on and how lightweight it felt on the skin. I think the colors were a pretty good match for me, but they do run on the pink side. Otherwise, it was a great formula that just didn't work so well for me personally.
This isn't the best foundation ever, but its not the worse either. I bought mine two months ago and just ran out today, not sure if I'll be getting this one again. It had good coverage and my skin looked great and smooth with the medium one I got, but it feels greasy and makes me feel gross, and it really doesn't last too long, even with primer. :(
Very light but gives awesome coverage!
I have it in shadeCaramel. I bought this foundation only because it was on clearance at Ulta and I had a coupon. I was a little skeptical because i didn't know if would match my skin but it ended up being a perfect match. I was using the Mac Studio Tech which was way to heavy and did not go well with my skin. This foundation does not make your face fee like you have makeup caked on. Very light but gives awesome coverage! I use this in conjunction with MAC Mineralize Skinfinish Powder in Dark. My skin looks sooo natural and flawless! I will buy this product again!
I have been using this foundation for a couple years and I def love it as my drugstore product. It has great coverage and makes my skin look smooth. It doesn't seem to last all day but I always have it with me. overall its a great product! xoxo
Eggy Smelly, greasy, slimy foundation that makes you look like you rubbed butter on your face. Ive never tried anything so greasy and gross before. Powder wont even mattify this product. Total Miss.
I bought this in Porcelain Ivory and it was a perfect match for my skin. This product has very good coverage and a great sponge to blend it in. Although it is a little smelly when you first buy it, the smell of eggs on the sponge goes away. I don't think that the scent of the sponge should drive you away from buying this product though. Overall great!
I absolutely love this product.The finish is not mask-like,feel light, easy to blend and has good coverage. It goes on very smooth, but it does feel a bit greasy.
For me it's a MUST HAVE.
I REALLY hate this..
I got this foundation hoping it would be nice and light and smooth on my skin as advertised. NO. It extremely streaky and feels really cakey on my skin. It was defiantly not worth the 12 dollars i payed for it!
Wouldn't even give it one star
I was so excited about this when I first heard about it. I have combination skin and my dry areas are the outer parts of my face and on my upper lip strangely. I heard from a few friends with the same issue and even looked at some reviews from youtube that said that they really loved it. So I decided to give it a try. It's not worth it at all.
First of all I'm very pale so i grabbed the lightest shade because I'm always the lightest shade and it's at least three shades too dark and orange.
The second thing is it accentuated my dry patches. It's supposed to be the version for people with combination to dry skin but it makes dry patches worse.
I have acne prone skin as well because I have rosacea on my cheeks and this did not cover the problem areas even when I was experimenting with the coverage. It also did not cover any of my redness at all.
It's also very hard to get an even coverage. I tried so many different ways of applying this. I used three different brushes of mine, a dry sponge, a wet sponge, my fingers and none of them worked. Every single time i applied it my face looked splotchy.
It also did not set. I decided to wear this out anyway and give it a real chance outside my bedroom... I shouldn't have. i applied it with a wet sponge and then set it with a powder. I went to put on my uniform for work and looked down to fix the collar and there was makeup all over it so I had to change shirts. I wore this to work and it wore off in 2 hours. It did not wear off pretty either. I had parts of my face that were covered and orange-ish and then there was my actual skin.
It just did not work for me at all. I'm really dissappointed too. I really wanted to like it.
