Why .... this is exactly the same as Armani's Face Fabric ..... but better, better because of more colour selection; better because of lower prices. Face Fabric is over $55 only available at Holt-Renfrew. I got mine at Walmart for $17.
NC35 (summer) and #207 Buff Beige is a good match; actually its such a light coverage that the neighbouring shades will also match me fine.
Needless to say, it does not or cannot "lift" a thing, but it does a good job in blurring minor flaws. Those with bluish pigmentation or pitted acne scars will be disappointed.
It is a light to medium silicone based foundation. Armani must have a decline sales on its Face Fabric that it decided to release the same product under a different marketing scheme.
Will repurchase, oh, so many great foundation came out recently.
BTW, this product does not have any SPF claim d/t the more stringent Canadian standard.

EDIT: I returned and grabbed another shade #203 Nude Beige to lighten #207 a bit, eventually I will be using #203 alone as winter approaches.
I do find if I need to powder over this in my oily T-zone, talc based loose powder works better than silica based powder for this kind of fdn. Anyone shared the same finding?

This foundation goes well on the application. It stays on long. It brings a nice dewy finish. I did use miracle blur before,they did work well together! I've picked sun beige for my olive skintone. It did cover well also! Love it!

This product doesn't perform consistently for me. I am on two prescription acne medicines which makes my skin feel on the dry side, but usually I don't have any flaky patches. Unfortunately today I did have some flakiness and this foundation accentuated the dryness and made my skin look uneven and not pretty. The texture is creamy and silicone feeling but it doesn't absorb well into the skin, you can feel it sitting on top of the skin and it needs to be set with a powder otherwise it will only like about 3 hours. There was a few times when my skin was very hydrated without any dryness and the foundation gave a light-medium coverage built up with two layers and I used concealer under my eyes and on old acne scars and the foundation looked good. If you have normal skin this may work for you but its too high maintenance for me. For a nice light coverage foundation try the Revlon Nearly Naked instead. I am NC15/20 and used Classic Ivory which is a bit too light for me in the summer but would work in the winter.

I bought this foundation after seeing it hyped up on youtube. I thought it was cool because it has this interesting gel like texture, but I soon realized it was a major fail. Price: I bought mine for about $13 and I have it seen it as much as $16, which is very pricey for a drugstore foundation and I don't think it is worth the price tag. You could save some money and buy something way better like l'oreal true match or true match lumi. Shade selection: the shade range is very poor. They don't really have any dark shades. On the face: I have normal to dry skin and as soon as I put it on it clings to my dry patches and looks very patchy and cakey.

I picked this up on whim because of the pretty packaging and because it appeared to be more of a cream foundation rather than a liquid and I've been really digging creams lately.

Upon application, my first impression was that it looked OK. It was not the coverage I expected from a cream (usually medium to full coverage), this definitely has light to light/medium coverage. But it had the nice satin finish you get with creams. Definitely was NOTHING next to my Laura Mercier Silk Creme foundation.

As for my experience with this foundation, it just really didn't work for me. It was very smeary on application and did not have the desired coverage I wanted. I don't think it did any "blurring" as it suggests, I found it accentuated lines and pores a little more than the average foundation. But I bought it for over $10 which is pricey for drugstore imo, so I thought it was OK enough that I was wearing it to work for a while.

The biggest reason I am done using this foundation & would not recommend it is because it has terrible lasting power. After a couple of hours at work I would check my makeup and it really looked dreadful. At my nose bridge, around my nostrils, and my chin, the foundation had separated A LOT- making my face look splotchy, dry, and obvious I was wearing make-up. I know many foundations separate a least a little bit, but I am not exaggerating this one did it probably the worst. Most of the makeup looked as if it had rubbed off. By the time I would come home it basically looked like I had taken a nap with my foundation on (I know from experience lol,) And I did wear this with a primer underneath & set it with powder.

I had been alternating between this and the L'oreal True Match Lumi liquid foundation. And although for me that foundation isn't that fantastic either, it still doesn't separate as much and lasts longer than this one.

All in all, I expected better from this foundation, and for the price I think there are much better drugstore options. I suggest you pass.

I thought I'd give this product a try as I have a few acne pock marks on my cheeks and tend to go for products that are useful for wrinkles, as those ingredients usually help minimize their appearance.

First off, the color selection is very poor. Secondly, this product was completely off my face about 3 hours after I applied it. This is definitely not for people with oily skin. I did notice a fuller appearance in the few pock marks I have, because the product is full of silicone which "fills in" wrinkles and pock marks. However, overall, it made my already oil skin look even oilier and had no staying power at all.

i always tend to use "age rewind" products although i may not need it yet but for the benifit of the moisturizing cuz of my dry skin...this is a good foundation but not great, a little exspensive as well. i love the packaging easy to use. but something about this makes me use it off and on..maybe the silicone? but even on my dry areas this made me a little shiny through out the work day. i wouldnt recomend for oily skin but dry/normal might like this. the coverage is light but you can build. overall a nice product but do not see repurchasing.

I thought I liked this foundation but after wearing it for a full day I definitely changed my mind. It looks great at first. It's lighweight but has decent coverage and gives a nice glow. It looks very natural on my normal/dry skin. After a few hours though it looks like I have nothing on my face!

Looks great for about one min. Light coverage. End of day, it looked like my blush an bronzes slide down my face and it was blotchy.

Light-medium coverage and gives a very dewy finish. Not a whole lot of color selection. The tube packaging is very convienient, but the foundation is very runny, and I found it difficult to apply. It kind of just sat on my face and transferred a lot. Foundations typically don't cause me to break out, but this stuff gave me major breakouts.
