I love this foundation! I have recently started breaking out quite bad, and when I apply this, it covers up most of my acne, leaving only a few stubborn marks for me to cover with concealer. It definitely stays put, as it says - which is great, because not a lot of products do what they claim!! And it also does not make my skin oily, as a lot of foundations seem to do. And this does not just wash off with soap - you need to use olive oil, or a longwear makeup remover to get this off your face, which is great, as it means it stays put!
It doesn't stay put, i found it rubbing off throughout the day. My gripe about this is the pump. You have to keep pumping to get the product out and when it does, it squirts out everywhere! It got on my clothes, my walls and my mirror! It wouldn't be so bad if they could just package it better!
i love this foundation i have combination skin and medium oily T zone and it works pretty well and have the perfect coverage for me for everyday use and i definitely would buy it again !!
Not extralasting at all, very sheer, almost no coverage, streaky. Horribly expensive (17 dollars) for such poor quality. Regret buying it.
I purchased this foundation in NUDE.
Smells awful, terrible chemical smell, I was very hesitant to apply this to my skin.
Application was very sheer and I had to reapply in some areas. I noticed after the first application that this foundation had settled into the pores on my nose and was noticeably lighter than the surrounding area. I have never had a foundation do that to me before.
Gave me a nice natural look on parts of my face but was not suitable for my mature skin
I have finally found my forever foundation!
I've never found a foundation that I would repurchase. I've always been let down by others, but this foundation is amazing! It blends so well and doesn't emphasize any imperfections, dry patches etc. I recieved complements on how healthy and flawless my skin looked within 30 seconds of wearing it for the first time. Hands down the best foundation I've tried (and I've tried a lot). It's made such a dramatic difference to my skin. I love it! 5/5
The only strange thing about this foundation is that my usual foundation shade is a 'medium beige' color, but in this line I've been using Ivory and it matches perfectly. These foundations seem to run extremely dark.
Packaging is great and hygienic with the pump but I would not buy again, here are my reasons: 1.) It transfers terribly and I dont normally care about foundation transferring but this foundation makes its way onto everything I own when I wear it. 2.) It is definitely NOT Extralasting, I would say it lasts about 4-5 hours before major breakdown begins. 3.) Does absolutely nothing to control oil. 4.) Creases terribly around my nose/eye areas. 5.) It is a hassle to order and wait for 6.) I can really feel it sitting on my face, something like a clay feeling. It has a mousse like consistency out the pump and never really sets even tried with different powders. Even tho I wouldnt buy it again, there are some good things about it and its why I will use up the bottle I have at least instead of throwing it away: 1.) the shade natural tan is a true yellow shade that for once actually matches my difficult asian tan skin tone. 2.) For the first 3-4 hours the coverage is full and matte but not overly dry looking 3.) It gives a perfect soft focus effect that makes my skin look terrific, my boyfriend actually said this is the best foundation hes ever seen me wear (for the first few 3-4 hours anyway). I honestly want to love this foundation, but due to all the cons I just will not be repurchasing, but I will really enjoy using up the rest of my bottle...its a good foundation to slap on right before my night class when i know i will be back home in the next 4 hours so it works perfectly in that way. O also, the color is the same in natural sunlight as it is in artificial indoor lighting which is hard to find in foundations. I really hope avon improves this formula and makes it truely extralasting then i will most definitely will be buying again!! (o and its paraben free!!!)
I took a little trip with my sister to an AVON STORE 20 minutes away from our hometown and as soon as I walked in, I felt like a kid in a candy store!!! And the owner was SUPER NICE AND HELPFUL.
I have NEVER used an Avon foundation, so I decided to give look round, There was a full make up testing station just like in a department store, but without the annoying counter girls. The lady let me test and tinker with EVERYTHING without bothering me to make a sale. Plus she was so amused seeing a guy testing out foundations and actually knowing how to properly apply it. It was adorable, she gave me some sponges so I could test the foundation on my face and I forewent those and went straight to a brush-had to use a dense powder brush since I didn't see any flat top brushes or paddle foundation brushes-btw-AVON make up brushes SUCK!!!!
So, on to the review:
-Packaging: the packaging is pretty well. It has a pump, however it took a few good pumps for the product to start coming out, and when it did it splattered a little bit which I did not like one bit!-But I survived.
-Price: I have no clue what the price for this is in the Avon Catalog, but I bought it at $9.99 which is a good price for the product.
-Quality: this foundation blends well. I got mine in SOFT HONEY, it has nice gold undertones to it that make it look more like skin and not ashy skin.
I put it on for a family event I had (outdoors) and the foundation's staying power was pretty good despite the fact that I was sweating like a whore in church.
The only thing that kinda bothers me about this foundation is how it feels. You can definitely feel that u have it on and that annoys the hell out of me because it feels as if my face was a tad itchy...not allergic reaction itchy...just a tad itchy. I do however like the healthy pop of color it adds to my complexion. Updates to come...so far it is still touch and go at this point. Nothing compares to my Revlon Colorstay as of yet.
Ok, so I have had my make up on since 7 am...it is now 130pm and I find that this foundation does not quite live up to its name. I see it a bit runny in places...and quite honestly, my face feels dirty!!!
I will stick to my Revlon Colorstay..and just use this up. I wil not be repurchasing.
I can't say I was overly impressed. The color goes on much different than it shows in the bottle, it also kind of went peach on me, it also settled into my fine lines and pores.
Avon... whodathunk?? After wasting dollar after dollar on higher end foundations, I finally took a chance on Avon and ordered samples of this foundation in three different colors. Soft Honey was a perfect match for me so I ordered a bottle. I am super pleased at the appearance and wear I get from this foundation. Avon seems to be notorious for getting rid of foundation formulas and coming out with new ones and I hope that this one sticks around for a while. I will definitely continue to buy it.
