I really like the light weight quality of this. I'm a NW35 in mac concealer and got the 190 in rose beige. It's a great colour match for my 1/2 South Indian 1/2 Mediterranean skin tone but I'm 41 with kind'a dry skin so I find it just goes a little too powdery on my skin and in some parts of my face it goes really dry and flakey ... still playing about with primer/moisturiser combos that might work but in general pretty happy with it.

Hi ladies...So this is my HG foundation but let me tell you why: I have extremely difficult skin to work with. I'm lucky enough to not have any acne BUT I get annoying dry patches. On top of that, I also have oily skin. My forehead and nose (T-Zone) gets very oily and then around the sides of my nose gets VERY dry to the point where I need to exfoliate so often! This foundation is amazing. I'm shocked because it's better than all of the luxury brands I have tried. I have tried so many different high-end brands (NARS, Laura Mercier, MAC, Make Up For Ever, and the list goes on...). This foundation not only makes my skin look flawless... It also looks better throughout the day! It honestly looks even better on my skin after a few hours. You don't even need to set it AS MUCH since it has a powder finish. It looks natural; like skin. Two thumbs up for this amazing foundation! Try it out. It's not that expensive and definitely the best I have ever had.. *drizzy voice*

I really wanted to like this foundation due to all the hype. The bottle is cute but when you shake it little bits come out and are wasted, making a small mess on my table. The feel is neat but this doesn't cover much at all. I prefer medium to full coverage foundations but like a simple easy foundation to throw on when I need to get out the door quick or when I'm just running errands. This foundation has the coverage of a tinted moisturizer or even less. It emphasized dry patches and was not buildable. For $12 at ULTA, it wasn't worth it and I wouldn't repurchase. The Maybelline version also accentuated my dryness but that at least provided decent coverage.

Meh! This makeup was okay it was not horrible but it was not the best and I will not be purchasing it again. The coverage for me was about a 5 out of 10 it was also long lasting, on average 7 hours of wear. The problem for me was that it highlights the imperfections on my face like my pores and the dryness around my nose and any other dry areas that would temporarily appear. My solution to this was to apply Neutrogena hand cream to my face before the foundation and that kept the dry spots away and left my face looking dewy. Another problem was then longevity of the product, it lasted me about 2 months...seeming as you have to put a lot on your face as it is very liquid and thin. This leads me to the price, for the price of the product in comparison to the longevity, coverage, and illumination of imperfections, I would much rather spend about $20 more and get the foundation that I love that lasts about 3 times longer and covers 2X better, because in the long run replacing this every 2 months would cost me more to own a product I don't love.

I bought a shade or so darker than my normal foundation shade and mix a couple drops in with my usual clinique foundation. it's nice for summer time to add some color and still look light and natural. I wouldn't use this product as is all over though, too slick and oily but just a few drops for a pretty glow is good!

You guys how do you like this!? This product is absolutely horrible!!! I'm a big fan of dewy skin and have been faithful to my mac face and body but I wanted to find something with less shine for going out in the summer and long work days. I bought classic tan I'm n7 mac face and body and WOW!!!! This stuff was AWFUL!!! I looked so old and I'm only 22! I have oily smooth skin and I always get compliments but this made me look lifeless. It's so weird to blend and the texture isn't powder it's like putting on tinted silicone primer. My skin was soo dry and cakey looking YUCK!!! There is noticing realistic about this makeup it's horrible and I'm surprised it's still on the Market.

I used to use this foundation as a lighter (more to just cover up redness and unevenness) cover for when my skin decided it wasn't going to break out that day or week. It never broke me out and I often forgot I was even wearing it, it feels so light. It does cling to dry patches if you're not careful, though. I am obsessed with ingredients in my skincare (and this product has nothing in it that would be above a 2, I believe, on the comodogenic scale)

Also, I only bought this the first time because it was on an insane sale (Kmart was shutting down) So I may buy it again, but I like to check out every product out there so its just a maybe.

I am not sure how some dry skinned girls are saying they love this foundation...i have oily skin, and sometimes i feel like it clings to dry spots on my face. I think this is best for oily skin, but it's not for controlling oil so i still have to blot throughout the day. It's definitely the most interesting foundation out there, but by no means do i feel glamorous when i wear it.
It works best when used with fingers rather than a brush or beauty blender. It's good on days when I don't want a full face of makeup but still want some coverage.

I used to love using this product but after awhile it gave my face a fakey cake face look.
My skin would be dry and this product don't help moisturize. I just don;t like how it gave me a dry cake face look

I bought this foundation as a day to day alternative to my high end Chanel foundation. I am fussy about applying my usual skin care products before any foundation. I also apply a higher SPF sunscreen since the small amount of any foundation I use is not enough sun protection . Usually, I use a primer, although sometimes I may skip it.
I typically use a light hand with foundation, since I feel heavy foundation does not flatter mature skin, no matter how good one's skin is. I shake well and pour a small amount into the palm of my hand and apply with my fingers, smoothing and blending as I go. I may or may not apply a second thin layer. While doing my eyes, I allow whatever remains in my palm to dry until it no longer looks wet, but is not completely dry. I use my middle finger and pat some of the semi-dry Magic Nude onto a couple of discolored areas and perhaps under my eyes instead of heavier concealer. Works for me!
I stipple and blend a gel or cream blush, then set by buffing with loose finishing powder (I use either Bobbi Brown or Laura Mercier). Sometimes, I skip the powder; no hard and fast rules. It all takes far less time than it took to write this review! I get a nice "my skin, but better" finish.

I find Magic Nude Liquid Powder lasts me through the day. If I am extending my day or if my large pores are looking more noticeable, I will touch up as needed. Frankly, I thought I would always be a high end user of certain products, but I find I reach for my Chanel less and less, although I still like it (also use with a light hand). I like Magic Nude much better than any of the BB/CC creams I have tried.

The one caution - the bottle is glass (I like the feel of it). However, I dropped it on my tile bathroom floor, and while the bottle did not shatter, it cracked enough to leak.
