I've repurchased this so many times I used to love it but after having my second baby my skin has changed..so this foundation and is no longer for me. I have dry skin now..and this is horrible for dry skin!!! Hate this stuff..ughhhh
Not exactly recommended for drier skin types. Also goes on fairly easy but leaves an obvious chalky finish, not that airbrushed smoothness most of us want. Skip this.Unless you have oily skin.
I used to use this a lot. But it honestly oxidizes like crazy!!!! Turns into orange hell after awhile and that's with primer and setting powder. I want to love it but just can't after I've tried so many better ones. I won't throw out the one I currently have as it's ok for short time periods so I'll keep it as a backup. But will not use unless I have to. It's also full of pore clogging wax. :(
I wanted to like this due to the seemingly ease of application....BUT you have to be careful applying it as just when you think you are flawless there is a spot that refuses to blend! This makeup does not last long either EVEN with a primer underneath. The shade "creamy beige" is a perfect match for me but I need something that lasts all day and something that blends easily.
This is so great for people who don't want to look powdery and want their skin to look natural. It's really great
I love this stuff! It is really buildable, blends flawlessly, and wears all day. It helps me cover my dark circles and uneven skin tone, and doesn't cake. The best part is, I don't need to set it with powder, and I don't get an oil slick mid day. I've tried do many items like this that have been major fails. This one is the best.
This is a pretty decent powder foundation. It's hard to describe the texture. It's like someone mixed powder & foundation together. My sister & I use this everyday. It covers really nicely, but it can cake super easily. I recommend using your fingers to apply it instead of the sponge it comes with. It's more hygenic that way too. I find it easier to apply with my fingers, it doesn't cake too easily that way. The color is a bit too pale for me (Classic Ivory), but I tried the shade darker and it was too dark. They discontinued the shade between Classic Ivory(210) and forgot the color name but it was numbered(220). It would of been a perfect match if they didn't discontinue it. :[
It's super cheap though! My whole family uses this product. I'm almost out there's barley enough left for the next week of school. It lasted me about 1 year and a half. I'm pretty sure. This product doesn't stay very long though. Maybe an hour or two. If you go & blow your nose or whip your nose the makeup will easily come off.
- fantastic coverage! [covers my horrible redness & huge zits]
- good to travel with & throw in your purse. [it has a pretty decent mirror too!]
- super cheap
- can get cakey [if applied with the sponge applicator, I suggest using fingers!]
- doesn't last very long.
The great thing is that this product is travel sized so you can touch up throught the day if you have time, but if you go to school or work and can't touch up often, I suggest buying Revlon Colorstay foundation/whipped foundation.
I bought this to use over my Clinique Pore Solutions. I find this work just fine. No grease on my face. In fact today I was asked what I was using, that my skin looked so nice.
First I use Clinique Pore Solutions, then a very small dot of the pore solution that is in a tube (invisible bright) just on my chin. Then the ultimate finish. And even by the end of the day my chin is not greasy.
I really wanted to like this! The coverage was great, and a little really went a long way...but it didn't look natural and made my pores stand out :( This made my skin very oily! Doesn't last very long either. It looked good at first, but then it just went right into my pores and looked cakey/gross. It's also pink undertoned, which didn't workout for me. I need a yellow undertone.The packaging's fine, and the sponge is decent. It's easier to apply if the sponge's damp. The price was high for the quality imo...a little does go a long way though.
I would not buy this again.
I don't see why this gets such a bad reputation. I rarely wear makeup any more, but I figured I pick up some new stuff just in case my girl started to show. I like the fact that I can be lazy about it. I never understand how women can take SO LONG to do their makeup. Just to end up looking like a drag queen. (I love it on queens. ^_^) This covered pretty well. I had a few small breakouts already, it covered them no problem. I did use a moisturizer before using this, but that's because I use ProActiv and while ProActiv clears up my breakouts, it dries me out horribly. I digress. I used a light layer. It felt clean. Covered my lighter freckles complete. I used this with a little bit of eyeliner and mascara and my sister said she was in love with my face. I'll probably buy it again just because of how quickly it applies and all the compliments I've received on my complexion
It is a cheap drugstore makeup. You get what you pay for.
