Not for me. Dried out my skin and I could definitely feel it on my face. Also pretty cakey.
I really, really liked this product. I have extremely oily skin so I knew that even if this went on matte (which it did, and it dries fast so make sure you blend well!) it wouldn't take long for me to get oily through it. It stayed matte a couple of hours before my oil began to come through. The coverage is fantastic, it does double as a concealer for me. My only complaint about the foundation and why I think it deserves a 3 is due to what other reviewers have already mentioned...it oxidizes on the skin. It goes a shade darker a few hours after application. I am in the lightest shade 805 ivory and when I first applied it matches my skin fairly close, but it isn't a perfect match. I can top it off with a lighter powder to make it appear close. But after oxidizing...it is obviously not a match for me. If they came out with some lighter shades that would be perfect and then it may be my HG foundation.
WARNING: This product oxidizes quite a bit and so when color matching yourself in the store, find the color that matches you and get a shade lighter.
I was able to swatch this in store with the shade that I had matched to my skin (in the bottle and was the second lightest shade) and it looked perfect when first applied, then I continued browsing only to look down and see that the swatch was completely noticeable and darker than my own skin. And so I went back to the aisle and picked up the lightest shade which now matches me once it has oxidized.
I find this foundation to be a very nice every day foundation that I don't feel guilty using all the time about as compared to my higher end foundations that I've spent a lot of money on (ie. MUFE HD foundation). It gives me medium coverage and I think it's very build able and I like that. I apply it with my blending sponge or my buffing brush and I'm pretty happy with it.
This is a WONDERFUL foundation! Stays for forever and it covers so well! The only problem that I have with this foundation, is that it oxidizes so bad on my super duper pale skin. I also wish the lightest they have out was just a shade or two lighter. :/ But overall, it is a medium to full coverage foundation. I just hate it oxidizing so bad on me, and I am so pale that I have to blend it all over my chest if I'm wearing a shirt that is more low. Very good coverage though! Impressive! I also don't even have to use a concealer most days. :) LOVE THE PUMP! I would probably repurchase if they came out with a much paler shade, because I read that they were coming out with one!
I have tried many foundations and i absolutely love this foundation! It provies the coverage that i need without making it super obvious that i had foundation it. It look natural and flawless. Will definitely repurchase!
Wow I really like this foundation! It has good coverage and I love how light it feels on the skin. I also love the pump. I've been using this for a couple of weeks and although it's great, it has been breaking me out. :(
I bought this foundation because it seemed to match my skin tone and it claimed to be long lasting.
what i like about this makeup:
-matches my skin tone
-does not look orange or brown
-does not cause breakouts
what i dislike about this makeup:
-is not fragrance free
-is not oil free
-does not provide coverage
This is the best foundation I have tried for my oily skin, and I have tried them all! The only con would be color selection. I am NC30 and nude beige is my best match. It is also kind of hard to blend because it dries so quickly, but with a beauty blender it does a great job. It also is thinner than Revlon colorstay and doesn't smell as bad, thank God!
Someone went up to me and said that my skin looked great and that it was so clear and healthy looking. NO ONE has ever said that to me. Needless to say, I am very happy with the foundation. I actually think I have a shade that matchest closet to my summer skintone than anything I've tried. And I've tried sooooo many. My first CG foundation. I use Soft Honey. Previously, I've been matched to NW25. It didn't oxidize or fade on me. I wore it for 9 hours straight. Although I do recommend that one's skin not be dry because this will emphasize dry spots.
I have no problems with removal. I double cleanse with clean and clear sensitive skin wash and it comes off easily. [I always double cleanse unless I haven't been wearing makeup.]
This is my holy grail foundation. I have terrible skin that I am insecure about and this gives me great confidence. I have oily/acne prone skin with large pores and acne scars. This is amazing. It is the only drugstore foundation Ive ever re-bought. I LOVE my Estee Lauder DW Foundation but I have not gotten any due to the fact I love this. I am on my second bottle. Its great.
