This is a pretty decent foundation. The coverage is medium, and it doesn't feel heavy and never looks cakey. The only downside is that you have to blend VERY well and put a powder on top or it will look orange. This was dirt cheap at my local k-mart. I think this would be a good foundation for a beginner or let's say you went on vacation and forgot your foundation and needed something quick and cheap. I used this for a while, but as it's getting to be summer I'm going to get a better coverage bb cream and powder foundation. This does slide after a few hours and when it's really warm.
I've tried NUMEROUS inexpensive foundations and thought they were all just OKAY, until now! I really prefer this foundation, from Jordana, over any other drugstore foundation. It covers well, even though it's a light coverage; it covers evenly and smoothly, controlling my very oily skin quite well! It's also quite long lasting as well! For only $1.99, this has proven to work so much better than all the others! Seriously, so cheap as this was, I really was expecting an epic fail! I'm light, and purchased the shade "beige". It is a tad too dark, but I find it looks like I have a slight sunkissed glow with this shade. Guess I should've ordered "natural" or "buff", but I do like the sunkissed glow look, so it isn't a BIG deal! I can pull it off! So, I think this shade would be great for light-medium skin. LOVIN' it so far! Anyway, to see a couple of pics, you'll have to go to my profile and view my pics, as I ran into problems trying to upload a pic! I have a pic of the bottle and a small swatch of the color. Also, I smear some foundation around/in the cap and use it as a concealer. Works GREAT!
This was okay. I will stick with my neutrogena foundation. If money ever gets tight, I will switch to this
This product was drying on me and leans very pink for my skin. Those are the only bad things I can say about this foundation though! It hasn't specifically caused acne, is very layerable depending on the coverage you want, comes in a very functional glass bottle, and plays very nicely with my synthetic foundation brush. If I find a good moisturizer then I'm sure this will work for me until I can cough up the big bucks for a foundation that matches my skintone and still won't make me break out. Until then this bottle is my little $2 godsend for covering breakouts!
Finally found my HG foundation!!! I have spent so much money on HE and drugstore foundations to work with my oily, acne-prone, sensitive skin so I decided to give this product a try after watching a review on YouTube. I can't believe how matte this stays all day!! Great coverage!! I use this in the Natural Shade mixed with the Beige shade (I have light-medium skin tone). I also use Jordana's pressed powder for the finishing powder. Love it!!!
I have to say that i do love this cosmetics line. I have used $30 foundations that can't even compare with this foundation, they either looked to dry or made my face break out. I love how this does not make my face break out. I have gotten so many compliments on my makeup. if people are having problems with this line all i have to say maybe it's not for you or maybe your just not doing it right and not using the right skin care system. I also love the fact that where i live it is always 5 for $5.00 so i can afford it.
After a while of using elf cosmetics I have Switched back to Jordana. It just suits my skin better. Plus I am now using an all botanical skin care line from petal fresh and my skin has never looked and felt better. and the best part is i can afford everything since it is only a dollar and same with my skin care.
I really did not enjoy this foundation whatsoever. It says oil-free and I'm an oily skinned person, YET what happens when I get home from school? I'm the greasiest oil slick ever. I kinda figured this would happen considering I don't normally use Jordana anyway. The packaging was perfect which is probably the only pro I have for it. The smell wasn't all that great either. I don't know. Maybe it's for you or maybe you'll end up like me. No harm in trying though since it's SO cheap.
I am really surprised with this little find. For 2 Euros, I did not expect much. The smell was very chemical-ish, but after it dried on the skin, there is no more smell. It does dry quickly, which means u have to work quickly on blending, it is similar to MAC prolong wear and MUFE Mat Velvet in terms of drying speed and the feel after it is dried. It kept my face matte for over 4 hours, my T zone needed blotting, but at least the foundation did not slide off my nose. Coverage is medium at best, but for 2 bucks, it is good enough. Packaging is very simple and I don't have a problem with it, had no pump, but does Revlon CS. All in all, this is really not too bad.
Watery consistancy, oily,no coverage, broke me out, poor quality.
I have this foundation with the pump in the Beige color. It's a light shade with a pinky tint. I love the packaging as the pump is really great. You only need a little bit of product as it goes a very long way. It's matte but not totally as there is a little bit of shine to it. I really do like this product and a friend of mine complimented me yesterday and said that I have really great skin while I was wearing this product. So I do recommend it.
