To me, this is an HG foundation. My skin is super dry and foundation tends to stick to dry patches. Also, I have a hard time finding a good color for my skin. I'm usually NC 25 in Mac and I wear Look #2 in this.

I love this foundation. It is the end all, be all for me. It's light coverage yet fully covers everything. I feel like I'm wearing nothing. My skin looks FLAWLESS.

I found the foundation stick to be too oily for my skin (my is not oily at all) And too thick in texture. Would not buy again, revlon is much better and less expensive.

I have been using this produce for about 5 months now and have gone through about 2 of them. They do not last very long probably 2-3 months tops. It is pricey, but is worth the money. I have to reapply this 5 hours later and it blends well when reapplied. I use the napoleon concealer on top of this and then the Natural 2 compact powder foundation on top and my face looks awesome. This product makes my face look amazing and gives it full coverage. This works the best with all Napoleon Perdis face products. I will keep using this product!

This foundation is the best by FAR!! I bought this an it literally lasted me 10-11months! And i wear it fairly thick (i rub the stick over my entire face then blend in) and everytime i leave the house. The coverage is flawless and its long lasting (morning till evening it still looks great!) I got my sister onto it an she agrees that its amazing! Ppl always ask wat foundation it is coz it is so perfect. It can feel a little bit dry if you dont use a primer but it wont stop me from buying again :) iv never had a break out from it so im very pleased with this foundation..absolutely love it!! Best iv used :D

Pro's:

Medium to full flawless coverage
Super long lasting (all day/night)
Resists water/sweat/tears lol
Lasts months
Wont smash as its plastic not glass
Easy application

Con's:

A bit pricey ($70 AUD) especially wen you use it with camera finish powder like i do which costs $65 AUD....BUT.....the products last ages so its kind of not that bad.

I'll continue buying an recommending this product!

Don't get me wrong this foundation has amazing coverage but it just didn't go good with my skin at all. My skin looked so oily and horrible with this. Definitely do not recommend people with oily or combination skin to try this. And it was such a mess to apply, it felt so heavy but the napeleon make up girls told me to mix it in with the primer they had, it did work it felt a lot better but just didn't make my skin look nice at all. Now I'm using true match by lo'real and it's amazing!

I purchased this at the recommendation of the MUA at Ulta. I wanted something to cover spots and blemishes. I cringed at the hefty price tag but figured I would give it a try because I knew I could always return it if it didn't work out.

This worked like a charm for blemishes. You can use this as a foundation, too -- blended lightly over your entire face with a foundation brush. When used as a foundation, it made my skin look practically flawless. I even tried it as an under eye concealer -- not so great for that. It settled in my fine lines and looked cakey.

My problem with this product was that I never knew if it was going to be creamy or dry. Every time I opened the casing, I never got the same consistency. My finger would sometimes glide smoothly across and it would apply very creamy. Other times, it was like rubbing my finger over a parched tongue (gross, I know). I did like the way it looked on my skin, but for an unpredictable blemish/spot concealer -- the $40 price tag was a little too steep for me. I know that I can conceal my blemishes for $10 or less. I took it back.

I have oily skin and this was recommended to me by a gay friend of mine he used it to cover up his tattoos on his neck for work purposes. I have to say i love this stuff.. IF anything else I will wear this plus some matte powder on top some mascara and gloss and im good to go. I love this stuff and it lasts forever. Im barely finishing my 1st stick and still going strong a little goes a long way!

Basically this foundation is ONE, HOT, OILY, GREASY MESS! Definetley not for oily skin, not even combination skin! Only someone with super dry skin can use this as there skin might suck up the oil basically. The colour range is horrible and this oxidises badly, I found with all Napoleon foundation when you add more than 1 pump you end up orange by the arvo. Definetley not re-purchasing!

When i first bought this product and used it for the first time, i was relieved because it worked perfectly for me. It made my skin flawless and it covered my dark circles and red spots PERFECTLY. i absolutely loved it. i don't wear make up everyday so i only used it maybe three times a week. after the first week of using it, i got a few bumps around my upper nose and a few bumps on my forehead. i NEVER ever ever break out on my forehead. So i got a little suspicious, but it was so expensive that i didnt want to believe that this was making me break out. So a few weeks later i used it again and this time i started getting pimples on my cheeks and chin. again i ignored it because it worked so good. But a few weeks ago, I had to get my ID taken for school and i used it all over my face, like two layers, and the next day i broke out so bad that there wasnt a clear spot on my face. I was horrified. My face was absolutely so clear before i started using it. And now my "acne" still hasnt gone away. Maybe i had an allergic reaction. I dont know. But if you have sensitive skin, i wouldnt try this product. Fortunately, Ulta gave me store credit after i returned it because it was over the 60 day limit and i hadnt used half the foundation stick. Now i am trying the revlon photo finish concealer and it's way cheaper.

I love and hate this foundation for several reasons. Firstly, it provides AMAZING coverage, like no other foundation does, even better (as in easier to apply and no need to layer) than MAC's full coverage foundation. I have tried them all, DIOR liquid foundations of nude, forever and sculpt (very good, but pricey and not a lot of coverage), MAC foundation sticks, Bobbi Brown foundation sticks, Smashbox ALL BUT nothing compares to this one in terms of coverage. I have acne prone, but dry skin and this is the only thing that covers my scars, recurring pimples, etc. However, this foundation does tend to get oily VERY quickly and patchy, so if you tend to have oily prone skin, I would stay away or if you're oily but not excessively so, use this foundation but make sure you powder really well after. I have given it a two though because it gets patchy very quickly on me. However if I was going to an event and knew I would be photographed I'd wear this just because of the flawless coverage. It's just that for every day I don't want to have to worry about it transferring (I have way better things to spend time thinking about). For an event though I'd consciously resist touching my face and check on my skin every hour or so. I am an NC10-15, and I use look 2 in summer and winter, but I just change my finishing powder, so in summer I use a darker finishing powder (DIORSKIN nude in sable rose) and in winter a paler powder (DIORKSIN nude in Beige praline).
By the way, it has not broken me out with new cases of acne, so I would say it's 'acne proof' as my skin breaks out super easy
