This foundation has been the best that I've used. Granted I've never been a big foundation girl since I have pretty clear skin. Although, I do have freckles and the Laura Mercier Cream Foundation smoothes them out and makes me look like I have flawless skin. I love the application since its so creamy and you don't really need that much of it! It is a bit pricey for me and I'm worried I won't be using it much longer because once I get tan (and I might be about to go to school in Arizona and STAY tan) I just like using tinted moisturizer!
I have to say i was a nervous spending so much money on one beauty brought. I brought it for $49.95, but i seriously love this item. Its texture feels amazing and it really is silky. It really does cover all your face on such a small amount and its amazzing coverage. meaning you dont need to use alot. it has great stay putting power and stays for hours. its great and worth the money in my book, i will be buying more!
When I first got this product I has combination skin that was very acne prone and found that it turned my face into a grease ball. The foundation was put on a shelf and forgotten until last week when I went to a dermatologist and was given a new skin regimen for my acne that includes adapalene and benzoyl peroxide. Suddenly plagued with dry skin, I found most of my go to products no longer worked. This foundation, however is perfectly moisturizing, and sits beautifully on my skin for up to 6 hours. So I'd say if you have normal-dry skin give this foundation a try, but combo/oily may find it too greasy.
I got that foundation after the recommendation of the lady at the counter and it's a no-go for me. I have normal/sensitive skin and it's definitely not a good product for normal/dry skins. It's a very matte finish which looks very unnatural on my skin. I believe it would be a very good product for people with oily skin who want a full coverage foundation. I don't see how that foundation can have a "radiant glow". The only thing I loved about it is the smell and I have to say that the range of colors is very nice.
I hate to be the only one to say this...but i don't like this foundation as much as i wanted to. I first got the wrong color, and then got the right one but I do not like how it has a yellow undertone to it. granted this fades as i blend it in, but i still do not like it. another thing i don't like is the smell. most foundations don't have a scent, and if they do i generally don't mind it, but to me, this smells horrible. I have terribly oily skin and i set this with powder but 2 or 3 hours later i'm a grease ball. and the last thing...it's made me break out. after only 2 full days of wear, my chin is a mess with breakouts. i have not changed anything in my skin care routine and makeup routine except this foundation, and it just does not like me. oh well...it was worth a shot and i'm totally jealous of everyone who is having such great experiences with this foundation!
