I bought this foundation from a lady who sold Mary Kay. I bought two tubes for $1!!!! And I didn't think it would work since I have super oily skin but I was wrong. This foundation is amazing, it looks natural. I like how it comes in a squeeze time because you can control the amount of product you're using. The problem with this is that IF YOU HAVE SUPER DUPER OILY SKIN you have to use milk of magnesia as a primer or a good quality magnifying primer, other than that it looks natural, I get a lot of compliments when I wear it, but you need to use a concealer with this :) this lasts like 6-7 hours
This foundation gives pretty good coverage and feels light on my skin and the staying power is also pretty good however my skin is quite oily and prone to breakouts and I find that if I wear this foundation for more than 7/8 hours it breaks me out a bit (no whiteheads just a few red pimples that vanish when I'm asleep) and the color (I'm ivory 204) is too pink (but with good powder it's ok)
I'm 14 years old, and I use this foundation. It's amazing! I'm a light skin African american so I use bronze 507 even though it may look darker in the picture it actually light color for me, and it matches my skin tone. I love this, and when I run out I will buy this again. Though on other sites like amazon or the original Mary Kay site the price is eh. On here it's okay just wish it was 5 or 6 dollars like other good foundation.
Advice from me:
I have acne prone skin( It's not that bad it's almost cleared up ). Though don't ever sleep with foundation on. I never did it, but I heard it's not a good outcome.
Use some good makeup remover cleansing wipes like Neutrogena or Simple. They work pretty well. Though I am a little biased on those.
Not bad. Colors are kinda dull looking. This has the potential to be full coverage and is very buildable. Two layers covered my mild scarring. Goes on fairly smooth. Reminds me of MUFE Mat Velvet + but with a tad less coverage. Finish is matte.
My main gripes with this are that it doesn't control oil well and the colors are not that great. Not bad overall, but I think I could find better.
This product looks great when first applied. However, within 2 - 3 hours, it starts wearing off on my nose and chin. Don't even think about touching your face after you apply it either. Even if you set it with powder, it comes right off. Will not purchase again.
This is personally the best foundation I have ever used, I mix Ivory 105 with Ivory 104 to create the perfect shade. It's a matte foundation and it works wonders for oily skin. Applying it with a beauty blender is the absolute way to go with this one. Concealer is needed however.
This is a nice medium coverage foundation that blends in nicely with my skin. It stays on all day and it reduces the dark circles under my eyes and redness around my nose and cheeks well. It gives me the appearance of very little make up but gives me confidence that my skin is even and fresh. I've been using it for years.
This is my go-to foundation. I wear bronze 600 and I have tried many foundations to match my skin tone and have usually ended up mixing colors, which is expensive and annoying. This foundation does not give me a cake face and is easy to use. I use it every day and it does not cause me to breakout.
Let me start by saying I use this foundation only because I got it for free. I am in no way impressed with the quality of this foundation (or the exorbitant price that people have paid for it). I have light skin and picked what should have been a decent (albeit not perfect) match for me. The tone of the foundation is orange. I do not know anyone who has natural orange skin so this is already cause for concern. I have oily, acne-prone skin that is sensitive. I need to cover the acne but not irritate it or feel buried in makeup. There is no way this foundation can over the acne. It makes it less noticeable, but you can definitely tell there is acne. It also look chalky and unnatural, even after setting it with powder. I tried to use it as a concealer but it cakes. This is a terrible product.
I ordered a sample of this from ebay, and i'm glad i didn't waste my money on the full sized product. It blended well and gave me really nice coverage but the colour was horrible! It was a pink, orange sort of colour. Shame about the colour, if it wasn't such a horrible colour i probably would buy it.
