I purchased this product and was really quite satisfied with the performance, this is my second bottle.
HOWEVER, the last two times I used it my skin developed a serious rash like I had recently had a chemical peel. I wasn't sure after the first episode that it was the make up I only applied to nose and chin area for a light coverup and that's where the burns were localized, but when I used it again a week later, this time on my entire face, I noticed an uncomfortable burning sensation, then it bloomed into a two week rash I can't keep moisturized enough. It's two weeks into this condition and I'm so frustrated. I can't use anything except olive oil to keep my face moist until all this business finally flakes off. I have been using a sugar olive oil blend to exfoliate and then having to apply, 4 times a day, olive oil to keep it moist because the dry, tight skin is so uncomfortable.
I travel a lot via car and I think leaving this in my luggage in a hot car is what may have changed the chemical composition. I'm certain this is the cause of the chemical burns to my skin. There is quite a bit left in the bottle but I won't be using it again.
Just wanted to send out a caution to anyone who uses this, don't leave in the heat.
I have dry skin and this product works perfectly for me. I have a fair, somewhat ruddy complexion and this foundation covers my redness wonderfully without any caking yet feels weightless. I still don't have many lines on my face but I find it does make the ones I do have less noticeable. I do not notice any weird smell as some have been reporting. I think this is great everyday foundation for a reasonable price.
- not sheer so need only a little bit to have full-coverage
- pump bottle so hygienic
- quite runny so need only a little bit
- can use wet sponge to apply sheerly
- did not irritate my combination skin
- no fragrance (or maybe my allergy-prone nose cannot detect as easily)
- has SPF
- evens skin tone perfectly (my skin looked softer and smoother)
- did not oxidize; colour stayed true
- skin felt hydrated
- so light that I forgot I was wearing foundation
- see-through bottle so you can see how much is left
- not as cheap as other Avon foundations
- does not deliver on claim to reduce fine wrinkles but I didn't buy the foundation for wrinkles
I wore this on top of a foundation primer. It went on smoothly like other foundations. For the price, it really is a good foundation. The only thing I have to test is how it photographs (ghost-like then I'll be back to using MUFE HD).
This is the worst foundation I have ever tried. Makes me look a wierd shiny yellow. they do have great products, I bought this on sale, wich for my experience was a relief beacause I just have it stored away,, will be giving it to any family member who likes this foundation. As for me I rather not be wearing any makeup itf this was the only thing I had. FYI,,I left the foundation out of the box untouched for about 2 weeks,(since I dont use it),there was a thick layer of oil floating on top,,no way can that be good!.
First off, I notice that most of these reviews were done a couple of years ago, but I just got my foundation bottle (June 2012). I've only used it for a week, but I love the coverage and mostly, I love the way my skin feels when I'm wearing it. I tend to have oily skin and this can keep that at bay for 12+ hrs - lovely. Thanks for another great product, Anew.
If you can pass the awful chemical smell it is an ok foundation.
I bought a sample from this and I tried it various times.
I didn't like it at all. It was hard to blend, was cakey and felt sticky, emphasized my pores and imperfections.
Wouldn't buy it...
Disappointing! The coverage is horrible and it does not blend well. It looked super shiny when I first put it on but that did improve once I put loose powder on top. Does not last.
Terrible. Have very sensitive, dry skin. Sucks the moisture right out of me. Cakes in lines and creases and pores. Barely there coverage. Would not buy again. Will not use again. Tossing bottle.
i think it is for dry skin. For my combo skin, its very sheer. i dont like sheer foundations at all; if you like, and have dry skin, you'll be probably happy with the result. Because its cheap and good coverage, try it!
