This is a nice foundation. It made my skin look porcelain flawless when I wore it (but then again I used it a good year ago, when all I needed was to slap on a bit of foundation and my skin was perfect). Only thing is that it does not control oils well, and the colours were too beige. I find it hard to find foundations that have a colour that I actually like for my skin. I like NARS Sheer Glow best for the colouring.
Bought this last week for a wedding I have to attend this month. I asked for a lightweight, sheer to medium coverage with a dewy finish foundation, that would not sit on my pores. Well... not dewy at all and it definately sat on my pores. Also, even though I rarely get breakouts from makeup, this one did get me one or two small pimples, but nothing major. Overall not impressed. Thank god I didn't pay full price for this!
This makes your skin look beautiful, until it makes your skin covered in acne. I have mildly sensitive skin that was acne-prone but cleared entirely up with Roaccutane and stopped being acne-prone (although still slightly sensitive). The day I used this, I noticed a few little tiny pimples coming up. I tried it again, same thing. Too scared to try again as I'm still dealing with the pimples two weeks later. Doesn't look like I'll ever be purchasing this again, to be honest. Pretty disappointed considering the insane price tag.
This foundation made my skin look amazing while it was on. Even though it does oxidize! But it broke me out so badly. It gave me an itchy, painful rash on my face and it took over a month for my skin to get back to normal. I pretty much did a science experiment and isolated this as the culprit, lol. Then I looked at the ingredients and saw that alcohol was the 3rd one. Yeah. I'm kind of sad about it because I've never used a foundation that made my skin look so flawless and natural. So I had to give it 3 stars b/c for non sensitive folks who can find their color match, try a sample and maybe patch test first.
I love the way my skin looks with this foundation - It gives a really flawless finish. I had Forever Flawless Extreme wear and that just did not work for me at all so had to let it go, it just looked awful as the day graduated however Nude stays looking fresh all day (with powder to set). This is one of my favourite go-to foundations and one I happily pack to take away and use daily. (I have lots so always swapping around).
My skin is NC15 and I have this in 010. (arm swatch above). I found this a perfect shade match for me. I apply with either a beauty blender, RT blender or a flat top slightly dampened brush. Only need 2 small pumps and it blends easily.
Love the packaging, always feel something is more "quality" packaged in glass and comes with a decent pump that releases minimum product not half the bottle each time :)
Will definately be looking at re-purchasing when I'm scrapping the bottom of the barrel.
I really like the finish of the foundation (both dewy and glowy). Good coverage too (medium to full); Not long lasting; unfortunately, this clogs my pores and gives me acne. It has a very heavy feeling when you put it on- so not a weightless formula. I think that is why it's clogging my pore because it is thick and can be pore clogging.
I'm always someone who loves to try different foundations from drugstore brands to high end. However, there's 2 foundations I always find myself going back to and this is one of them. My skin is combination but after using foundation for a while it dries my skin out. This foundation does not do that. It gives a natural look but with coverage and is buildable. I set it with powder and it looks almost as good at night as it did that morning. It has great staying power. The only downside to this foundation is it's fast drying and the cost.
I don't understand the love for this foundation. Way too heavy, feels caked on, and dries out my skin completely. This would be way better for someone with oily skin....although I can't imaging wearing something this heavy all day. No go for me.
Love this foundation. I've used this product for years and I've purchased it many times. It has light coverage but it is very build-able. For a day time look, all i need is a small drop which I apply under by eyes and around my T-zone. For a night time look I use a bit more for more coverage. I have dry skin and this product feels very hydrating on my skin. I love this product and i will continue to purchase it over and over again. Its a bit pricey but it last me about a year.
It has literally taken me 4 tries to get the color right on this. I've had everything from choosing the wrong ones to Sephora sending me the wrong one. I finally got the right one and I really like this stuff. I ended up with Sand 031 which is perfect for my NC25-NC30. 021 Linen was just too light for me. I will update how this wears throughout the day, but I really like the way it appears when first applied, which is glowy, but not shiny. It feels hydrating on the skin, not the least bit dry and cakey. I love that it has SPF and that the packaging has a pump. I would say coverage is between light and medium. UPDATE: I wouldn't say this is particularly long wearing but it's not terrible. It did seem to get greasy after about 5 hours, which isn't bad, imo. Just a little setting powder and I was good to go again.
