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
I got this as a test to see if I would like the NARS Sheer Glow Foundation, and I loved this one so much that I don't feel the need to get the NARS (haha this happens a lot with me!). Nude is a perfect match for my skin tone because it doesn't have strong yellow or pink undertones to it - it's a true neutral based foundation. This stays surprisingly well on my oily skin - I love it!
This is my new favorite foudation. I love the finsh that this foundation gives my skin. i apply this foundation with a beauty blender (egg) type sponge. I only downside is that I have not been able to find this product where I live (don't think that it is sold in Canada) so i have to purchase this product from the USA.
My HG Drug Store Foundation!
I have been using Neutrogena Healthy Skin for about 9 months and I love it. I am already in need of another bottle! =D Now I am an avid high end user when it comes to foundations. I always seem to find the best quality and color selection in high end brands. But, when I tried this one I was blown away. The coverage is flawless no matter how it is applied. I have used blending sponges, stippling brushes, foundation brushes it all comes out the same....Flawless! I have very Dry skin so I have to be very picky with my foundations as some can make it worse. This leaves the greatest finish to my skin. Also, I reach for this more often then I reach for my high end brands these days. The color I use is number 40 Nude, so if you are a MAC NW20 this is the perfect color for you!
I hate this. Didn't think it was possible, but I do. I have tried to like it. I have tried using it with 2 different primers and without one. I have tried it with a powder and without. Every time I put it on, I get this gunky, greasy looking mess. Let me clarify here, I have normal to dry skin. I have no idea why it does this to my face, but it just sits on top of my face and just looks goopy. Not a fan.
