I am giving this 5 lippies considering the price. I think it is the best foundation under $30 but there are better, more expensive ones. It does a great job for the price.
Amazing foundation. Really nice medium coverage. I spray the product directly onto a round buffing brush like the RT one and then just buff it in. It goes on and blends quickly - it does dry and set rather quick-not surprising since you're putting such a tiny thin layer on. It is super fast to throw your face on and so convenient. The shade match is fair - I wear the medium shade and find it fairly suitable for my NC35 skin. It definitely gives a matte finish so if you're into something dewy or luminous this wouldn't be as good - but you can always put some highlighter if that's your thing. No need to set this with powder, I would say it does cling a bit to dry patches if you're not well moisturized. I think it does oxidize a touch on my skin but I don't wear primer or anything and I have normal-mildly combo skin. Would recommend you give this a go especially if you don't have a lot of time to get ready!
I love this product! I can't tell the difference between this and the Christian Dior air flash. It's amazing and keeps me oil free all day.
perfect for weddings and special event wouldnt wear it on a everyday thing tbh
easy to use and makes you look so flawless and makes your skin look and feel healthy
the texture is light and it doesnt feel as though you have much make up on.
for the price i think there should be more of it.
I really wanted to love this foundation, I put it on and loved it at first, after a while I noticed it essentuated my pores and they looked beyond huge. I did moisturize and prime my skin. it didn't make me super oily although there was some shine seeking through.
I will probably keep trying this foundation and hopefully get to love it like I want to.
It's about time I wrote a review for this, because this has been a savior for my dry winter skin this season. Where my other usual foundations started to show dryness, this one just rests comfortably on the skin and lasts all day without issues. The fair shade is a very good skin tone match for me, and with just a little bit of practice (this is my first spray foundation) it's quite easy to use. I spray this on primarily the outer edges of my face, and the middle of my forehead and chin (not breathing in, because the fumes are noticeable for a second and I don't want this in my lungs), then blend it out to the rest of my face with a brush. You can spray a tiny bit for very minor coverage, or easily build it up by just spraying more on the areas you need to. I love how well this covers all my redness while not collecting in or exaggerating any spots, pores or other unevenness. It can look a bit shiny so I usually add a quick veil of powder, and I'm done.
When I first received this, I was concerned that it wouldn't last very long because it felt so lightweight, but now about halfway through the bottle, I feel that it will last just as long as a typical 1oz of foundation.
One thing I noticed was that, in my limited experience, I don't think natural hair brushes will work great with this if you want coverage. Both of my natural foundation brushes ate this stuff up and absorbed a lot of product, making it very hard to build up coverage and even cover basic redness. A cheaper, synthetic foundation brush blended it out beautifully while not detrimentally absorbing the product. This is more an issue with the brush than the product itself, but I thought it was worth noting.
I purchased this foundation on a whim in the lightest shade. Originally I tried spraying it directly onto my face and stippling it on with a beauty blender, but in doing so, much of the product is wasted because it is such a fine mist. It is much more effective to spray it directly onto a beauty blender and stipple. It also applied well with the Real Techniques flat-topped foundation brush (the one that comes in a kit and has an orange handle).
This is a favorite foundation of mine for four reasons: it is a very good color match for my neutral skin tone, the fairest color is ACTUALLY fair, it provides buildable coverage, and it leaves a skin-like finish. This foundation was also reasonably priced.
I disliked the spray-application in the end- it was messy and ended up on any clothes i may have been wearing. Another negative was that the can did not last very long, maybe 3-4 weeks with daily use. Typically a similar size foundation will last around 2-3 months.
Overall I would purchase this again, and I would reccomend to others (especially if you had a good color match in the limited shade range).
I used the technique mentioned here to apply the foundation first to a beauty blender and then blend out. So far, it has worked pretty well and I am very satisfied with the coverage. I like the color range- I have the fairest skin so I am using the lightest shade. The ingredients list does not really appeal to me, but I could not resist trying the product after reading all the reviews. The only con that I see with this product is that dry patches are exacerbated by this, so beware if you are using products that are drying out your skin or you have dry skin. The price is great considering comparable products are double the price or more.
I like the product but it does cause my skin to breakout. I'll continue to use it until I run out. May purchase it again depending if my skin learns to like it and stops breaking out.
In terms of the product, I love how light it feels and gives a matte finish. If you tend to get oily, it might start peeking through after a few hours. On me, I looked a little dewy after 3 hours. Since it's in an aerosol can, I have never tried applying it right onto my face - I spray a bit onto a multitasker flat top brush (ELF and Sonia Kashuk work well) and then dab and blend all over the face.
Shade - When I first bought this, I got it in Medium - Light was way too light and on my summer complexion (NC30ish), I was able to get away with the darker shade. Now that I've gotten slightly lighter, it's now so dark on me so I just use it to mix with some of my foundation if I need to.
Once I ran out, Sephora expanded the colour range and added Fawn which is perfect for me (I'm now NC25). It's the perfect in-between shade of Light and Medium. It has a yellow undertone, but I'm pretty sure the price went up to $35... I'm pretty sure it was $29 - $30 CAD before. If you use it everyday, it might not last very long - maybe a month or month and a half at most which is quite costly. I tend to use different foundations depending on my mood so this doesn't apply to me.
All in all it's an amazing foundation and reasonably priced if you want to try it.
