This is a perfect foundation for somebody with normal to combination skin. If you are like me, however and you have oily to very oily skin - you may want to look for something more oil controlling. It's Winter here in Australia, so this is a good foundation for me at the moment. It has a beautiful colour range and I'm perfectly matched up in the shade 'Cameo'. On hotter days, my skin does go shiny and I need to oil blot and apply powder throughout the day. It does give good coverage and it isn't heavy - so you may skip concealer or just put some under the eyes with this foundation. Best applied with a foundation brush or stippling brush or fingers and then blended in with a sponge.
**UPDATE** I recently traded in Golden for Ochre, and after trying that for a week, I have come to the conclusion that it is to light for me. Still wearable, but looks ghastly if I don't blend it out. Will be trying Vanilla, and hopefully third time's the charm.
I've only had this a week now, and only used it two times. Both in sunlight and indoor lighting. For reference, I am NC35-40 and have recently bought MUFE HD foundation in shade #153 (except...I want to try #140 and see if that's a better match), Vichy Dermablend Stick Creme in Sand, Vichy Dermablend Foundation in Sand as well, but I think it may be a tad too light, and Bourjois in #55
First off, I love how the bottle looks. The pump is a mega plus for me because it helps control how much I want. I love the the look of the glass as well. It's not entirely see-through but this lovely opaque finish. The foundation itself isn't runny at all. Not like MAC or MUFE or Bourjois. It's very creamy and almost 'mousse' like to the touch. I got "Golden" (it has more of a yellow undertone) but found that it is way to dark for me. I like that they have a 180 day trial period where you can ship it back and get a refund (or in my case an exchange) for free. I like the feel of this, not heavy at all. It's med coverage with me, it covers redness/un-even skin tone, but my blemishes just need a little extra to cover the pigmentation.
This is geared for those who have oilier skin, but I find that it's not that great at controlling excess oil. I haven't tried it with a primer so maybe that will help it. But like I said, Golden was way too dark for me so I'll be looking for a new one.
The biggest problem I have with this is that I can't try the shades in person, only online, and I bet it'll take a couple times to get the right one (if there's a good shade...)
It's a pretty nice foundation, was only around $35, so it's one of the least expensive founations I own.
This is a really good foundation. It doesn't cake or look fake. It simply blends in and gives me a nice glow that is natural. It also hides imperfections and does not wear off as the day goes by. I use Chiffon and can also use Natural on my NC20 skin tone. I also like their Hydrating foundation which also gives me the same results. I'm not an IBO.
I have stopped using my favorite Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation since I met this one. Coverage is great leaves a flawless complexion and it does not feel heavy at all. It is a product made with natural ingredients and minerals and has an SPF of 20. I reccomend this foundation to everyone as there is one for every skin type Balancing for oily skin and Hydraitng for dry. I buy both as I have combination skin. I use Balancing in Summer and Hydrating in the Winter.
Give it a try you won't regreat it.
For reference I am and NC35-37 in Mac, and use The color Soleil.
