I love this foundation, I have been using it for about 5 years now. It really helps keep my breakouts to a minimum while providing full coverage. I also like that it has more of a matte finish rather than shiny like a lot of liquid foundations tend to have. I don't get shiny as the day goes on either. While the price is a tad more expensive than your typical drug store makeup, I feel that it is a trusted product that is trying to meet a drug store price, it is a happy medium.
Best foundation I have ever used. It covers enough to make my skin look flawless, but it doesn't look like I'm wearing makeup! It looks like really great skin when it is applied correctly, it's not too matte or too dewey. It's perfect! If you are a teenager with ok skin, with an occasional breakout and some redness, this is perfect for u! I've even found it won't completely ruin my face if I leave it on overnight! I put dots of it all over my face, then I blend them in with a Sigma 580 flat-top Kabuki brush, it is perfect!
I have a very oily t zone so i was recommended this product i def gave it a try and loved it.
I was previously using revlon photo ready and made me
Break out sooo bad (dont buy revlon!) so i will def re purchase this!!! Its kinda pricey but worth it.
Fist let me start with what I like. When applied right this looks great. Gives great coverage, makes my skin look even and basically does the job right. I do notice that it does take care of small blemishes, or maybe that's just in my head. I usually alternate foundation and this is one that I reach for when I notice I'm getting a small breakout and usually this seems to take care of the swelling of those nasty bumps. It last through out my work day and doesn't get shiny at all.
I would like to explain why I knocked stars off. 1 - It's missing a pump. I think it should be some sort of law that liquid foundation have a pump. Lack of one just means waste and a mess. 2 - I found that I have to be careful with the application because this foundation is one that can definitely cake up, and NOBODY wants that. 3 - After a couple of hours of wear I notice this foundation turns color. It ends up looking a darker shade with and orange tone to it. I might just have to find a better shade for me.
I might be repurchasing this if I can find a better shade for my skin and if I can take advantage of the many Buy 1 get 1 Half off offers because for a drugstore foundation Neutrogena is on the pricey side.
*** For Reference I use Neutrogena Skin Clearing Oil Free Makeup in Nude 40 and wear MAC Studio Fix Fluid in NC25 and Make Up Forever HD Foundation in N120.
I love this foundation. I have sensitive breakout prone skin and this is wonderful to help keep my skin clear. Also for a liquid foundation it feels very light and not heavy. I love that I can find a shade that matches my fair skin.
I LOVE this foundation. I had a terrible break out from Revlon Colorstay. It was horrible. I had acne all over my face. I bought this foundation and my skin cleared up in 2 days. I love the color. I have strong yellow undertones, and most drugstore foundations run pink.. But this one doesn't at all! I got it in shade Natural beige and it matches perfect. The coverage is medium but it is buildable and it lasts a pretty long time. It also controls my oily skin very well and keeps me matte most of the day. The packaging is ok. I love that it's small and not a big bulky glass bottle. It would be perfect if it had a pump but overall i am very pleased with this product.
This is an average foundation I would say. I wouldn't say that is necessarily clears up your skin, but it definitely doesn't break me out like most foundations do! I do feel that is looks kind of cakey on and it emphasizes any dryness you might have. It gives fairly good coverage though, so that's a plus! :)
There is a chance I would buy this again for days where I wanted to cover up breakouts but didn't really need to look all that fantastic, expect I'm trying to only use products that don't test on animals. So no, I will not be repurchasing this.
This had done wonders for my skin! Looks beautiful on and it really does clear up my skin when I wear it and I have very acne prone skin! Never knew a foundation could do that! I wear my Mac studio fix over the top and I get compliments all the time! Obviously, everyone is different and everyone will react differently but for me, this is amazing!
I don't think this product cleared my acne at all. It was my first ever foundation and I was only liking it because it gave me some coverage for my acne but it didn't do anything else. The foundation doesn't last very long and it fades really quick. It doesn't give too much coverage and I hate that it doesn't have a pump to it either. To add on, it made my skin very dry sometimes and having dry skin + acne isn't the most exciting thing to wake up to in the morning.
I bought this makeup because I am prone to Acne and I really enjoyed the skin-clearing pressed powder. I mix this product with a little bit of my favorite moisturizer because otherwise it is horrible and doesn't "blend" into my skin. If you don't mix it with moisturizer, it leaves a weird powder-y look to your makeup and just sits strange. It also was heavier than I expected, and I definitely knew I was wearing makeup. The packaging is nothing to write home about either, it is exactly like any other drug store run-of-the-mill packaging. Just a glass pour-out jar with a lid. The thing that set me over the edge with this product was the fact that it actually broke me out. This "skin-clearing" makeup made my skin breakout far worse than it usually did. I have recently discovered that my skin doesn't like salic acid, which is why this product did this to me, which is why I am not giving it a 0 rating. It would probably work for someone that does not have problems with salic acid, and if you work with the product (mix it a little bit and apply sparingly) it can look nice. Or you could just buy a different foundation that looks good without mixing it with other products...
