Great coverage, lightweight, dewy-satin finish
This is my holy grail foundation. There's honestly no pointing in buying an expensive foundation with this out there. It's got great coverage--medium-full but buildable. It gives you a beautiful, healthy glow. It's got great staying power. It has SPF, which is a plus for me. Some people may worry about the SPF leaving a white cast in pictures, but it didn't do that on me. I've branched out and tried other things, but I always come back to this foundation. I've heard this is a dupe (but better) to the Nars Sheer Glow. I think that one has less coverage than this one. One of my favorite foundations! <3
Let me start out by saying that this is the only foundation I've ever used all of it, then repurchased! This foundation is great for everyday use, but you better be careful changing because it transfers easily. Also, if you have oily skin be prepared to carry around a powder, because this will highlight that oily skin. Other than those 2 things, I think this foundation is fantastic! It never broke me out! Even when I wore it for a long time! This lasted quite a bit throughout the day too.
I LOVE this! I use this on close to an every-day basis. I use this when my skin isn't too red and I don't have a ton of breakouts. This is a very good everyday foundation. It makes my skin look healthy and does not cling to dry spots, the lasting power is very good with a powder and setting spray. I switch between this and my Revlon Colorstay, like I said, I use this when my skin is having a good day, and I want my skin to look dewy and natural. If you need a good powder to go with this, I recommend Maybelline Fit Me. Buy this product.

I used to mix this with my Revlon Colorstay to get my perfect color and that was alright, but I'm not fond of it by itself. I have somewhat oily skin, and this was just way too glowy for me! It's smooth and it's not cakey, just not my style!
the title of the bottle is true to name
This is a great foundation for both dry and oily skin types I think. I have severe dry skin and this can look beautiful on my skin when I prep it the correct way. I notice if I don't take care of my skin it can look a little flaky up close.
I LOVE the way this foundation feels. It feels super super light weight. I only put on one layer of foundation but this is buildable. I would not wear more than 2 layers of this though.
Medium-FULL Coverage which I love about this foundation. The color range is AMAZING. Fresh Beige 60 matches me to the T. I think the spf20 doesn't really make a difference with flash photography (at least for me it doesn't show up)
It leaves your skin looking healthy and I don't want to say dewy but it does have this natural beautiful glow (like a sheen)
It definitely feels DEMI-MATTE. For me this is the most matte foundation I have ever tried with my skin type. I have such dry skin that matte foundations do not look good on me and this is the closest I can get to a "matte" look. I do love the wannabe dewy look of this, but it doesn't feel or seem dewy it just makes you look healthy and glowy.
This foundation is long wearing. I wanna say I can wear this with no problems for more 8 hours. I don't usually wear this foundation A LOT, because my skin needs to breath but I do feel like I can wear this and my skin is still breathable.
update: I am not in love with this foundation. I would give it a 3/5 stars. it makes my skin feel tight. it's a sheer-medium coverage. with one application all over the face I can steal see redness peak through in areas on my check and around my nose. I loves the finish of this because it is a satin finish but still manages to look glowy/dewy but not feel tacky or sticky in any way. I notice if I wear this daily I break out and when I stop using it my skin goes back to normal.
Buildable, Silky-Smooth, Blendable, Natural Liquid Foundation!
This product trumps out all other products in my makeup collection. I am a hoarder of drugstore foundations, as I have had good luck with them in the past and don't really see the need to buy a higher end one. Although I do have problematic skin (breakouts, acne scarring, redness), I still prefer to use lighter formulas as they do not clog my pores and cause more issues. That being said, this foundation is buildable, which I love because it gives the option of wearing full instead of medium coverage.
Upon application, the foundation dries in a decent amount of time. It doesn't dry so quickly that I don't have a chance to fully blend it in, but it doesn't stay wet for an eternity either. The packaging is quite annoying, since there is no pump. I just pour some onto the back of my hand or onto a metal mixing palette and go from there. To apply this, I use a flat top buffing brush to give fuller coverage or a Beauty Blender sponge to give me a more natural look. It covers my acne without concealer, and I only need to add an additional layer around my nose due to my redness. It lasts about 8 hours with a setting powder (I use Rimmel Stay Matte in Translucent), and that works fine for my purposes. When this foundation fades, it doesn't get splotchy, but fades evenly across the face.
The pros of this foundation are that it contains SPF, wears for a decent amount of time, and is buildable. The only con I can think of is the packaging because it can be messy and hard to control the amount of product that comes out.
WONDERFUL! Definitely lives up to its name.
I have fair skin that can get really dry, especially in the winter. This foundation is great because it doesn't have that thick, heavy texture that other products I've tried. It feels light and fresh, like I'm not wearing makeup at all but the coverage is still very good. When I wear it just after applying moisturizer, my skin is baby smooth! An added bonus is that it smells vaguely like berries (or maybe I'm just crazy).
The only downside to this foundation is that it's not very sweat-proof or oil proof. I find that when I go to the gym and sweat a lot, there's barely any left on my face when I'm done. Maybe it's because I've never used any sort of setting powder on my skin after applying it, who knows.
So if you have dry/normal skin like me and don't want to sacrifice healthy skin for looking good, this is the right foundation for you!
Amazing for dry skin!
I LOVE this foundation. It's dewey and light, but perfects my skin without effort. I love the finish more than anything- it's healthy looking, just like the name says. Beyond that, it has good SPF coverage and wears well throughout the day. I don't feel like I'm wearing a ton of makeup when I put this on because it's so light and moisturizing. Perfect if you have dry skin, because it doesn't settle into dry skin like some foundations do.
Two thumbs up!
I heard plenty of good things about this foundation and it doesn't disappoint at all! I love using this by itself or mixing it with my Stila Illuminating tinted moisturizer. I use my duo fiber stippling brush to apply it and it blends very well. I definitely plan on repurchasing this when I run out.
