HD Studio Photogenic Foundation

love this foundation!

I have really dry skin normally, my shade is sun beige; and I want full coverage from a foundation. I don't get sheer coverage like other people who have reviewed this, but I also use a mineral serum primer before and apply this with my finger into little dots on my face and then blend in with a stippling/powder brush, so that could be an issue of how you were to apply this foundation depedant on the coverage possibly. I do have to go over some spots that I feel I want more full coverage in, but for me it's the same way for a lot of other foundations; so to me the coverage is very buildable- but not sheer. I also tested this out at Ulta against the NYX Pore filler primer before I bought it to see if it would minimize the size of pores as well, and it really does make them almost disappear. I should say that the one thing I LOVE about this foundation is that it doesn't cake up , and for me that's huge because I have drier than normal skin so it doesn't look cakey in certain spots and this foundation is very moisturizing & hydrating all day long for me! This really makes my skin completely flawless, and I set it with either NYX stay matte not flat powder foundation or Mac studio fix powder foundation, and also this foundation is very natural as far as color, it doesn't leave any demarcation marks (darker face to neck/unnatural lines from make up). This has a very matte finish, and I always finish my make up with Model in a Bottle which does help to make it not so powdery finish looking, but this foundation will last all day! (And I live in florida where everyday is 90 degrees and humid, so keeping your make up on is a big thing for me) Also the price point of this foundation is awesome, I think it was around $15 at Ulta. But all in all, this is a staple in my makeup bag, and an everyday necessity!
