pours out to quickly, gets kid of messy. packaging aside, the coverage is not bad but does get pretty cakey and looks dry. If you sweat in this product it comes off in sort chunk like, really not for me.

VERDICT: I would not repurchase this solely for the cheap price, there are much cheaper foundations that are of better quality
Normally i always stuck to MAC foundations (Studio Sculpt & Face and Body), but those made my skin look dry and flakey. So i tried the Rimmel one, and wow. Ivory is too dark for me and here in Belgium we don't have the palest shade, ugh -_- but when it oxidizes it gets really dark but i'll just mix it in with my Face and Body white and it's ok! Besides that i love the smell, i love the coverage, it's easy to blend, and my bottle comes with a pump which is awesome. It was 12,99 euros for me. continued >>
I've had my eye on the YSL touché éclat foundation after trying a sample of it from sephora but couldn't get myself to spend 50 dollars on it. Luckily I came across this foundation and call me crazy but it is very comparable to the YSL one.
The smell is very similar, they are both light, clean and really pleasant smelling.
The consistency is similar as well. Both are quite runny and blend really easily.
The coverage is a bit less than the YSL one but it gives the same dewy, light reflecting finish. In no means am I saying it has shimmer in it but it does brighten up my complexion nicely.
I do not like that it does not have a pump or come in a squeeze tube however I do like that it is in a glass container.
I have seen this foundation in practically every drugstore however I have seen the most shade selections at my local walmart. There are a couple of "new" shades at walmart that I have not seen anywhere else. I paid between 4 dollars and some cents or 5 dollars for my standard 1 fl oz bottle.
I picked mine up in light nude because nude was way too dark for me.
It is a medium coverage foundation which is perfect for what I'm looking for and feels very light on the skin. If I ever have to lighten up the foundation I just pump a little of my cetaphil face moisturizer (which is a very basic, simple and light lotion- no fragrance )
I apply this with either a damp beauty blender or a dense kabuki brush.
- natural finish
- decent staying power
- not thick or cakey (especially when applied with a blending sponge)
- pleasant smell
- doesn't seem to break me out
- even the lightest shade (Ivory) is a bit too dark and orange for me
- makes me quite oily
- I find it a little difficult to build coverage where it's needed
Bought this foundation not expecting too much seeing as it's so cheap and was pleasantly surprised!
I have a fairly normal skin tone and 100 ivory matched my skin perfectly.
I find it to be quite a light foundation which blends into skin very well! It never makes me look orange whether I'm going for light or heavy coverage.
It covers blemishes fairly well and redness extremely well.
It doesn't stay put all day on it's own but I find with a simple powder over the top it keeps skin looking pretty flawless all day.
I love how sheer and natural looking this foundation is and how well it can blend in. I will definitely be repurchasing as for an everyday foundation it certainly ticks all the boxes!
This foundation felt really oily on my skin and it seemed to slide of my face during the day and by the end of the day there was nothing to wipe off even when I set it with a powder.
This foundation did make me break out a little bit and the pump kept getting stuck down and i had to keep pulling it up.
The colour soft beige matched me really well but I would not buy this foundation again.
Pros: Good for a natural day time look, blends well, does not dry out skin, covers imperfections well, smells nice
Cons: Can make skin appear oily, need to use a lot for heavier coverage
this foundation is amazing! With a good concealer it covers my face so that it looks blemish free. You can find it at pretty much any store, and it doesn't even cost that much! it comes with tons of product; i have been using it pretty much everyday for the last 8 months and still have quite a bit left. the pump t now comes with is great as it makes it so much easier to squeeze the right amount of foundation out. the only thing i would say is that if i have not moisturized before it can be a bit drying. i love this product though!
LOOOOOVE! Love! Not drying, not oily. Just perfect. The lightest shade (Classic Ivory?) is light enough for my super duper fair complexion. So cheap! Blends like a dream with a beauty blender knockoff. A little perfumey for my tastes but it fades. No breakouts! Wish it was in a pump but what can you expect for $5? Will definitely repurchase!
