I soo wanted to love this foundation formula but it wasn't long-wearing like they claimed. The color 203 matched my nc25-30 skin tone perfectly and the color didn't oxidize very much. The finish is beautiful, especially if you have very oily skin as it isn't completely flat, but its not luminous either. the packaging is chic and pretty and I love the pump. Ultimately I returned it because it doesn't last as long as my ELDW and for the $54 price tag I didn't see the point in keeping it since it lasted about 5-6 hours on me where my dw lasts ~12. I enjoyed the scent of the product (sort of like baby powder) but it was a little strong to me. This would probably be perfect with someone who has combo-oily skin.
I am a big fan of matte, velvety foundations. This one by Burberry delivers just that type of finish -- a smooth, perfected canvas without any shine. I would not recommend for dry skin unless you adequately moisturize beforehand, or else it will cling to any flaky patches of skin. It has a thick, liquidy texture that will blend best with a Beauty Blender, a buffing brush, or a flat-top like the Sigma F80. It provides a solid medium coverage, not as much as MUFE Mat Velvet or Estee Lauder Double Wear. While the matte finish looks beautiful at first, it does tend to fade away in a few hours if you have oily skin. I highly suggest using a good primer underneath, with a finely-milled matte loose powder to set it. I don't mind blotting throughout the day because the finish is so beautiful. I also have a near-perfect match with the lightest shade 201, a fair neutral-yellow color which matches my NC15, pale olive skin. 202 would match NW15, and 203 would match NC20's. I would recommend this foundation if you are looking for a medium coverage, and a soft-matte finish!
Man, I really wanted to like this foundation. It goes on very smooth, and honestly I LOOOOOVE the smell omg- I normally hate fragrances in foundations with a passion, but this smells heavenly, like angel jizz. Every time I breathe in I just get happy thoughts. But anyway.
Unfortunately I really don't have anything else good to say about it. It doesn't last too long and kinda cakes up after about 3-4 hours, even with a primer/setting spray. It also REALLY needs to set as it goes on quite light before it really darkens, which can make it pretty tricky to work with and purchase. I really like something with a glow but for now I'll stick with my photogenic luminescence from Lancome. A sad skip.
I am in love with his foundation. The finish is mat and i apply it with my 130 brush by mac. I am in mac a nc25-30 and i use the color #204 which is a tiny bit too dark for me. This foundation is great for combination or oily skin. The packaging is also beautiful! It is a bit pricey but it is definitely worth the money. This foundation came out a couple of months a go and it's definetely my HG !
Great foundation! But a bit about my skin... I have normal skin which is sometimes combination in the summer. I have no spots/zits on my face, only get a couple at that certain time of the month! This foundation is fantastic! It goes on so evenly and makes my skin look perfect. I would say it is medium coverage. I use the Burberry primer first, then this, then the Burberry setting powder on top and it looks flawless. I use shade 201 which is the lightest yellow-toned shade and it's perfect for my pale olive skin. Definitely try it out! I think those with oily skin would love this as well as it gives a slight matte effect.
