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 for lazy days or when I'm in a rush...it's so quick and easy to apply! I always know my shades in CG, Classic Ivory when I'm pale, and Buff Beige/Soft Honey when I'm tan. I love that this does have a powdery finish, because I have an oily t-zone. I also love that this provides buildable coverage, because I like to wear my foundations very sheer, but want the option for more coverage if it's a special occasion or if my skin is acting up. Some foundations enhance my oily t-zone,but this one doesn't. I just use the sponge and pat it on, versus rubbing it, which I recommend to avoid it clinging to any dry areas. Portable, cheap, and easy to find. I would repurchase!
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. continued >>
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.
I love this product, and will continue to repurchase it until they discontinue it.
I used to wear it alone in Toasted Almond, but they discontinued that color. I bought the next shade down, Classic Tan to see if it would work at all. Through much experimenting and trial/error, I found a way to use this product that is so essential to my everyday makeup routine, I seriously can not go a day without it.
Since I use the shade lighter than my skin, the consistency and color acts as a base for my foundation. Kind of like how people use NYX Jumbo Pencils or paint pots for eyeshadow. I wear primer under it, and the foundation over it. I have a lot of acne scars, and this product helps give me that extra smoothing my skin really needs before putting on foundation. I have oily skin, but I have never had an issue with this making my skin more oily. Ive seen a lot of reviews that say it gets into pores and ect ect ect....every kind of face makeup will get into your pores one way or another. Good skincare is essential to any makeup routine.
I love this product, Ive been using it for almost 10 years. I cant see myself without it.
Wow... Really disappointed. I should've known better because my skin is suuuper acne/clog prone and according to Paula Begoun, this product contains all sorts of wax thickeners that are just awful for my skin type. However, despite my gut feeling, I have been on the hunt for a compact foundation (powder or creme-to-powder) to simplify my makeup routine and I figured at $7.59 at Kroger, what the heck. So I took the plunge.
-packaging= perfect for travel and hygeinic
-coverage= I was pretty pleased with the coverage and it smoothed over my HUGE pores...at first
-not even an hour after application, I blew my nose and there went any trace of makeup on my nose
-it started sinking into my pores
-it got really oily and a tad itchy (which leads me to believe after wearing this more than once, I would break out horribly)
I am pretty bummed because I really wanted to like this, but I guess I will just have to stick to my liquid Almay TLC (HG!!!)
I tried this thinking I would end up with nice sheer, yet matte coverage. Yeah I was wrong. About half-way through the day my skin looked like an oil slick, and I don't have very oily skin to begin with! It made me break-out horribly on my cheeks and forehead. The consistency of it in the package is actually kind of greasy, so I don't know how they play this off as a powder finish foundation. Not something you want to wear on your face all day. Beware of this product!
