I bought this after misplacing my Revlon Color Stay compact. I like that they have a pretty big selection of colors. It comes with a makeup sponge, but it gets dirty and gross pretty fast so you can either replace it or use something else to apply. Honestly, I don't think this product is amazing. It got me by.... until I found my Revlon compact again. It sets kind of weird on my face and makes my skin look dry. I won't be buying this again. I'll keep it around in case I need it for emergencies.
Have to agree, this makes me look like a corpse. I have pale skin, but this is hideous. No matter how lightly I try to put it on, it comes out mask like, and makes me look so so bad. Brings out every crease and line, looks like a rubbed my face in chalk.
Hey, did you ever see one of those costume movies about the French Revolution. Remember the pasty white makeup, watching cracks form each time a person had any kind of facial expression. Thinking that 'I have seen zombie movies where the animated corpses had better looking skin'. Yeah, this make-up is like that.
i love this foundation, its easy to blend, and i will not end up like theres an oil spill or something unlike my max factor pan stick, the coverage is so-so, but will do on work days, over all i like this stuff
I don't like this product. I was hoping it would be great, but I am disappointed. The quality was just not there. It is hard to get powder on a brush, and when applied it does not show and deliver the matte affect I was hoping for. Honestly, I would of rather buy cheaper covergirl powders than this again. I feel like I wasted my money.
I was badly wanting to add another compact foundation to my rotation because they're convenient and quick. This was not a good choice :( I'll admit, I'm not a huge fan of DS foundations simply because I have tried hundreds and they just hardly ever work for my skin needs. Trust me, if I could find a drugstore foundation that worked, I'd be the happiest woman alive! (Just wanted to put that out there because I don't want to sound snobbish). Anyhow, I was so happy when I tried the True Match LUMI foundation and liked it...but the compact doesn't hold a candle to it. Coverage was uneven, patchy and stuck to every pore/fine line even with a good primer. I tried a brush, my fingers, a beauty blender, the sponge provided with the foundation...all to no avail. It rubs off on everything it touches and staying power is zero. The only reason I gave it two lippies was the color match was great. I like the blushes from this line, and like I said before, the LUMI liquid version is good as well. I haven't used the original True Match liquid so I can't compare, but this compact foundation is a big yuk in my book. It is officially in "the pile". :/
This foundation didn't work for me. It applied nicely enough with buffing and patting and the color melded with my skin color, but it caked in my fine lines under my eyes and rubbed off on everything and had to keep touching up during the day. I have an oily t zone and I was a greasy mess after only a couple of hours. The packaging is a nightmare. It is big and clunky and awkward to open the foundation side and then get to the sponge underneath. Someone mentioned a mirror. There is a mirror? Where? You shouldn't need a degree in engineering to figure out how to open and use a compact. Sadly, this is going back go CVS.
I like this product well enough. It matches my skin tone well, but is not my daily foundation because it sometimes causes blackheads on my face. Instead, I use it often as a concealer (it's thick enough to cover well) and find that it works well for that.
If you're going to use it as a foundation, I like to stipple it on, or apply with a foundation brush. I find that it's too heavy to wear on my full face. I would not repurchase though.
I have this in porcelain which is too white with no pink tones at all. This makes me look ghostly white. I am very pale with cool toned skin. Maybelline dream smooth mousse in porcelain is the perfect match for me and I really like the formula better than this one. . Loreal true match gives sheer to light coverage and sucks into my pores as the day goes on.
Despite not having ingredients that normally cause fallout and being oil free this triggered me to break out and had really bad fallout. It also lacks uva protection. In my opinion this looked more like a mask.
I love this product. I had bought Mac Studio Tech cream compact and regretted it. I came back to this one. It is nice and creamy and goes on smoothly and feels like nothing on yet gives good coverage. Great price too, especially compared to the $30 I just spent on Mac! Last time I ever try to go high end.
