I really want to give it 5 STARS!
My skin type is Combination to Oily Skin (oily on my T-Zone only and rest of it is normal).
I bought it in TANGS, Singapore , last January. I knew about this thing from Paula's Choice review and it's said that this is one of the best foundation out there.
The package is luxurious and the price is somewhat expensive.
I got stromboli for my shade and it's just disappear onto my skin.
This one is blended very well (with brush, by the way I'm using Shiseido Foundation Brush or hand), the texture is runny, and it leaves a smooth silky satin finish on my skin. It's like a second skin.
I really want to love this foundation, but it makes my face (T-zone) oily after about 3-4 hours of wearing. I'm using Clinique DDMG and MAC Prep + Prime before it, and it still makes my face oily (Regularly, when I'm not using foundation and just put some sunscreen and moist. my face never gets oily).
It's not enhance pores or dry flakes I think and it's build able. Unfortunately, it's not photographed really well, so ur photo will show ur skin without make up (Yeah, it's just like a second skin).
But still, I really want to give this 5 stars. But, not for me I guess. But I'm still using it sometimes.
After trying Sheer Matte and absolutely hating the formula but loving the color, I decided to go ahead and try Sheer Glow. I have a very oily t-zone area, and I thought that this would probably just accentuate the oiliness and look horrible on my skin. I was totally wrong! This foundation has great coverage and looks natural (if you get the right color). I was surprised that it lasted all day on my skin without just sliding off. It definitely doesn't look matte, and I was certainly glowy, but it didn't look oily on my t-zone at all. The only downside to this foundation is the fact that it doesn't come with a pump! I hate having to pour out just the right amount.

This is definitely my "HG" foundation! I use mainly this during the colder months because it definitely hydrates your skin. During the warmer months, I pair this with the Sheer Matte Foundation (perfect finish). My skin is very picky when it comes to foundations. This is a lightweight formula that allows your skin to breathe with a medium/full coverage (I apply 1-2 layers & it's never cakey). Even with a full coverage, it doesn't feel like I have foundation on. It also leaves a beautiful satin dewey finish to the skin, it's amazing!
It's definitely worth the $42 for this bottle.
Best foundation for winter time!
I love this foundation! It is by far one of the best foundation that I've used this winter. I am combo/oily skin and this doesn't make me look like an oil slick. Even though it is recommended for normal/dry skin. This product def let your skin shine through and it doesn't look like you have any foundation on. The finish is semi-dewy and with a powder on top it is PERFECT! The reason why I gave it a 4.5 was because it is a little pricey. But worth every dollars spent!
