This foundation is quite good for oily/combination skin. The packaging is nice & clean. It comes with a pump which is a bonus. The coverage last me pretty much all day. My skin has a little redness & it covered it up 100%. The powder I use on top is the Maybelline Shine Control Loose Powder, works very well together.
The only thing I wish it would improve on is the colour range, I need basically white!
This is my first review for my very first foundation. Choosing my first foundation, I was looking for something that is easy to work with and looks natural on my face. When I first tried it on, it blended really easily with my skin. I took the shade soft honey (nc30) and it hid all my redness from acne. I used a quo sponge to apply with only one layer. Most of my friends actually thought, my skin looked nicer but couldn't really tell I was wearing makeup. I usually do touchup on my nose as it is really oily after like 6 hours. Other then that, its really good for the "no-makeup" makeup look. I haven't tried building it on but yeah, I guess it would work. Doesn't really smell like anything
I had some coupons for CVS Pharmacy. Found Nude to be a great color match. The total was only .74 cents. So, I am not out much if it didn't work. Well, this has blown my Estee Lauder DW, out of the water. Didn't have to touch-up and wore flawlessly for nine hours. I have oily skin and this remained matte. Cover Girl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-n-1 has a thin consistancy, with medium to buildable full. Given this is the first day; praying it doesn't cause me to break out. I'll up-date if that happens. Great Product!
- My skin: combination, mildly oily in T zone, clogged pores, normal to sometimes dry on cheeks
- Coverage - medium
- I tried this with: Paula's choice mattifying primer + MUFE HD powder to set
- Application: pretty easily blendable; I just used my fingers. Didn't particularly emphasize dry patches.
- Wear throughout the day: just a little shiny in my T zone (not bad), but getting patchy around my nose after 6 hours. Rubs off really easily, which is the worst part about this foundation.
- Summary: this is an OK foundation, especially considering the price, but it was seriously rubbing off so easily, I had to return it.
I never, ever, EVER thought I'd find a foundation I'd use for ages and love as much as this one. Never. I was the girl who would buy new foundations every month or so because nothing worked for my skin. Not anymore! This has great coverage, blends effortlessly and manages to keep my skin looking matte (and amazing, somehow) as long as I have it on. Seriously, my skin is gross and this makes it look normal. That's pretty huge for me. The pump tends to get clogged a bit but really that's an easy fix and barely a complaint on my part. If you have been going through foundations like crazy and haven't managed to find one that works for you, PLEASE give this a try. Will continue to repurchase until they discontinue it.. and they better not! Will also add that I'm a pale lady with NOT pink undertones, and I use classic ivory and it's a perfect match!
OK, why have I been spending 37-40 bucks for prestige brand foundations when this stuff is way better? It goes on smoothly with my Real Techniques Expert Face brush, blends out well and stays put all day. I do put a little powder over the top for good measure, but honestly, it doesn't really need powder. I put this on at 6:30 am, worked a full day and my makeup still looks fresh at 5pm. I didn't notice any oxidizing a lot of drugstore foundations tend to do on me. I would caution that this foundation does set rather quickly so be sure and get it smoothed out without delay. I did notice where I didn't blend out some of this foundation under my eye and when I went to try and fix it, I couldn't without making a bigger mess.
Glad I listened to all the YouTubers on this one and decided to give it a try.
I have been on the hunt for a good foundation for years and I have finally found it with this one. There was so much hype over this foundation that after reading my 80th review I decided to buy it. The foundation is 1 oz and comes in a glass bottle with a pump. Which is amazing because most drugstore foundations don't have a pump. There are two lines, the regular (blue top) and the Queen (brown top) which caters to darker ethnic skin tones. I was afraid that the regular one would be too pink for me, so I went for the Queen line. I got the lightest shade in that line which is Q800 sand. I used my Sonia kashuck 130 buffing brush and it applies it amazing. One pump gave me medium coverage and another half pump made my skin look flawless. All of my acne scars became invisible. My skin didn't look cakey or heavy. The foundation felt so light on my skin. It blended in easily. I even used it as concealer under my eyes and it works great. I also use this with my elf flat top powder brush and it applies just as nicely.
Now for the lasting power. I will put this foundation on at 6am, not set it with a powder. I will go to class then go to work at a restaurant where I'm in front of a grill or fryer or some type of stove. At 2am the next morning, my foundation will still be on. It won't be as amazing as it was when I first applied, but it still looked pretty good and I will have barely any oil come through. I have been using this foundation for about two months now and I can say that ii truly do love it. I cant see myself using another foundation.
The price is great, overage is amazing and lasting power is out of this world. And they have a ton of different shades so you will find yours. Thank you for reading. I hoped this helped.
I wear this in Creamy Natural 820 and I am MAC NW20. It's a perfect match. It wears a loooong time and is not drying. I have very dry skin and was worried because people said this was not for dry skin and I had purchased it after I heard that.
This dries to a satin finish, not matte. It's easier to work with than Colorstay and does the same thing except, I think I might like this one a little more. It doesn't feel like anything on your skin. It's easier to remove as well. I had no breakthroughs or wear after 10 hours. It still looked great and to be honest wears like Colorstay in which is looks even better after hours of wear.
It covered everything and I am seriously impressed. This didn't look flat on the skin either, which I have that issue with Colorstay. So if you wanted to wear this and nothing else except mascara and some lipstick or whatever, it would look fine.
I bought this product several months ago after hearing so many rave reviews about it. I do like that it is very long wearing and has great coverage. However, I don't find it to be a matte finish. I would call it satin. It is easier to work with than Color Stay but I prefer the finish of Color Stay. I would buy this product again.
I just love this foundation so much! I have it in the shade 845 warm beige. It sets to my skin really fast and feels like a light powder.It finishes matte on my skin and it feels completely weightless! My sister hates the feeling of makeup on her face and she hates the tiniest bit of makeup on her face but she says it feels like shes not wearing anything! It really lasts and i dont get an oily feeling. I wore it for about 7hrs and its still perfect! The color seemed a tiny bit light when i first applied it but about 10 mins later it just matches my skin perfectly! The only thing is that i wont recommend it for people with dry skin because it does show the dry patches quite a bit, but otherwise it is my HG foundation!
