Another amazing foundation put by the wayside. For all the negative reviews the most important step in ANY foundation is skin prep. This is no different. Now about the product, I've tried EVERYTHING and this is by far one of the best, skin like, flawless, long wearing, NON ACNE causing foundations on the market. It never ceases to amaze me on my skin and the many compliments. No, it's not a heavy blanket of coverage. But when applied over the HG Veil Primer, add some glow drops...it's heaven. No funky smell, no clumps, easy to blend. I really encourage you to go back and give this one a try. I cannot believe the amount of new releases from all these brands that are complete and total let downs. #shamelessI am sick of getting sucked into every new foundation as being the next BIG thing when quite honestly its not. Skin care is the most important so you don't need a heavy layer! Please don't stop making this incredible foundation Hourglass! It's never ever failed me!

I rotate between this and UD Optical illusion. Everytime I wear this one, I notice my makeup has held up and least 2x better than the UD one ( which does do its job fairly well). My days are over 12 hours long so I really see to what extent a product will hold up on my combo-oily-large pore-red skin. Although I'm oily, I need to mosturize well regardless and this primer works best when my skin is at its best (if I'm feeling dryer than usual, I'll stick to UD). I like the way it spreads easily over the skin, doesnt feel tacky, yet I can tell my foundation or BB is grabing hold and that it wont budge for the rest of the day. I'll need to blot once eventually, and thats it. Theres a slight glow I notice after my base is applied. Smells like school glue.

I’m been looking for a full coverage foundation that last and doesn’t become sheer. I have acne prone , oily t zone skin with red acne scars.
With that said, I fell in love with this foundation! Once applied it felt so weightless! If you have acne scars then you know how hard to find a lightweight foundation that’s full coverage.
Pigmentation is great! You don’t have to use much product to get the full coverage. I do find it best when you stamp once bluff if it isn’t full apply a couple stamps more you should get the desired coverage.
It does settle into my fine lines underneath my eyes but it doesn’t exaggerate them. Honestly you can barely tell. I’ve had other products that created lines.
I normally set it with a translucent powder or my EL doublewear power it it makes it last a lot longer.
Another tip, don’t use a primer. I’ve noticed it works better without it.
Overall it’s a great product, I love the dewiness it gives completely different from the matte-ness I typically use.

Waited months for this to get back in stock at Sephora in Atlanta. I'm NC25/30 and this pulls more coral. More glittery and prettier than Nars Orgasm. I also like Laura Geller Pink Grapefruit and Milani Baked Luminoso and Terra Sole. Love Chanel 390 Burnt Coral!!

I have this in the shade radiant magenta and it really is a gorgeous natural looking blush. The problem is it fades, sometimes as fast as ten minutes after application. I’m even using this over long wearing primer, foundation and setting spray. For such an expensive product I expected better
