I'm not one for 'lighter coverage' foundations. I don't have bad acne but I prefer the look of medium/full coverage. This is an absolute amazing foundation though! I think this may be the only lighter coverage foundation that I will try. So great, definitely recommend this if you don't have bad acne but like the look of medium/full coverage! :)
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS FOUNDATION. I would say this is better than my MAC Studio Fix Foundation. It's dewy and very skin-like. The only thing I don't really like is that it doesn't stay in place during the day even with a primer. After 5-8 hours, it's already gone. But as far as finish and coverage goes, it's pretty damn great.
I love the way this foundation is so lightweight on your skin and feels great! It kind of reminds me of the true match "Lumi" by Loreal, but this one feel so much better on your skin. I have oily skin and this foundation blocks all the oil. This foundation also lasts SUPER long, defiantly something am going to use for a pretty long time. love it, very satisfied with this foundation!
I love this!!!
I've been looking for foundations for a long time. Trying to at least match my skin tone! I have oily skin, and it's AWSOME! It has that matte but slight glow look that makes me look so natural! I will so buy this again. Finally something that works!
LOVE this! I love the buildable coverage, it offers medium to full coverage if you layer it twice. Love the smooth, silky texture and how it feels so light and comfy on skin. It never looks or feels cakey. It has a slightly luminous quality that makes my skin look glowy and healthy. I've gotten numerous compliments on my skin when wearing this. I did have issues color matching, however, which shows my inexperience with base makeup! I tried the first shade (Ivory) and it took me till a fourth of the bottle down to realize it was wayyyyy too light and pink toned! I recently got Vanilla (too light but better undertone for me) and Shell, which seems to be a great match. Finally! So, I had to play around to find the best fit, unfortunately, because drugstore makeup prices are rising, especially for foundations. This buffs out perfectly on a brush and I love the full coverage and finish when I use my beauty sponge. As soon as I heard about this foundation and its sorta dupey nature to UD's Naked Skin, I was all over the cheaper, easier to buy alternative. I wouldn't say this foundation is a dupe for the Naked Skin, but its such high quality and feels high end, for being in the drugstore. The design is adorable and super chic, the only caveat being there is no pump so sometimes more spills out on the back of you hand, that you don't need. But honestly, I could bathe in it. I'm not a hundred percent sure this is a perfect match, but its close- and its kinda impossible to find one as the color on our face, neck and chests are totally different! Surprise, the wonders of our natural pigmentation! But anyway, I don't see the need to run off for a super high end foundation when this is right at your drugstore. I don't experience any flakiness with this even if I haven't exfoliated the day I'm wearing it. (Although the NN powder emphasizes my flakes). Its very moisturizing and refreshing to skin, so great for dryer skins, but I'm not sure how much an oily person would like this. Seriously my HG foundation. And if you need to customize a shade further, just mix and blend a few together. I am still really bad at foundation matching, but I think I've finally figured this one out. In the future I need to get MAC matched, though. That might help when I get other foundations in the future.
Streaky for dry skin
Highly suggest , if you have dry/combo skin moisturize before! Also try to use your hands to blend instead of a sponge because it Spreads much easier! Try to touch up with moisturizer or powder throughout the day because it does wear a bit! It is very build able which is why I decided to keep it! I got it a bit too light so I will go back and mix it or buy a new one!
My new Foundation of Choice!
Now, I came from using really high end foundations to this. I really wasn't expecting much out of it, and I ended up loving it. I use it in the shade 100 Shell. The price is really what's so amazing about the product, it seriously costs about $9.00 max; depending on where you go. I've seen it go for $7.45. Anyway, I get a very good coverage and longevity out of this foundation. I get a really beautiful glow, and seamless coverage. It seems to just blend perfectly with my skin. It's actually the first time I was able to find a suitable shade for my skin tone. I love this, I think it's fantastic and works very well with my skin tone, and skin type.
Finally a drugstore foundation for cool pale skin tones.
I use this in Ivory 010 and it is perfect. For years I have been unable to find a drugstore foundation that didn't leave me looking yellow or too dark and this is it. It blends well. Is light on the face. Builds to medium coverage. And wears pretty well. I don't think it would work well for those with oily skin, at least not without an oil control primer.
