I purchased this in Classic Ivory. This shade was very orange, and was not a good color choice for me. Also, the coverage is minimal, so I'd recommend this for those with little imperfections or people looking for a light coverage. It gave my skin a tight feeling, and was not very breath-able on my face. The pump on the packaging is not easy to use; I often pump out too much, and it also gets "stuck" and can be very difficult to use properly. Also about the packaging, it is very hard to find out a proper shade since you cannot see the actual foundation due to the aluminum packaging. I purchased this for $8.99 at Publix, so the price isn't too bad. I will not repurchase this.
I like this foundation OK.
Light coverage, which I like, nice texture and it's blendable. At first I had given it 5 stars.
But I noticed that it oxidizes like crazy on my skin, to an orange tone or something like that....
I just had to put this one aside. :(
I really like this product. I'm African american with acne prone skin and hyperpigmentation. I am shade light cocoa in this foundation and it matches my skin very well (it gives me a glow). THIS FOUNDATION MATCHES MY SKIN BETTER THAN ANY OTHER DRUG STORE BRAND IVE USED THUS FAR. I love that this product is truly brown (not too orange and not too yellow)The product offers medium coverage and is light weight which I love for the summer. (If you apply too much you will look cakey)I dispense the product onto the back of my hand with a quick firm pump. I then use a small flat head makeup brush to stipple and work on to my skin. This foundation does not apply well with your fingers . It also dries fast so apply in sections. It transfers easily... so set with powder and you are good to go. IT DOES NOT BREAK ME OUT AND WASHES OFF VERY EASILY!!! I will definitely repurchase.
This thing was just a big mess. After shaking it and pressing the nozzle multiple times it finally gushed out (yuck). I go to spread it on my face and it goes on blotchy, uneven, and escentuates every tiny dry spot on my skin. It looked VERY masky and fake. Even though I bought the lightest shade it was too yellow. For $11, it was a total waste.
This stuff is awesome! I hated it at first, but I combined it with other foundations & it works beautifully. It gives you a light coverage which is good for me cause
I just have sun spots I wanna cover. Gives me a matte finish. Color is pretty close to my skin tone, and skin type. Good all around - Tzone. continued >>
I bought the lightest shade and I looked so orange it was embarassing! Try squirting a little out and half the foam in the bottle comes out >:( didn't blend either!!! maybelline liquid/mousse foundations all suck! The revlon one is fantastic though! continued >>
I bought this at my walgreens for a sad $11! I was still very excited to use it. When I got out of my walgreens, and was heading into walmart. I looked up the reviews for this product on my phone. Seeing all the horrible reviews, my heart sunk and I thought of taking it back before I opened it. Thinking about how products work differently for everyone, I still wanted to try it out. I'm glad I did. I wanted this product in the first place because of the adorable commercial! Now I see, it is very light....before you rub it in. I spray the foam (which I LOVE!) out of the back of my hand. This formula is so concentrated a little goes a looonggg way, sadly, you can't take out a "little." You can't really control how much the pump lets out, even if you just put a little pressure on the top. This product can look extremely cakey on your skin. I have acne prone skin so it does on mine. It gives light to medium coverage. I won't be repurchasing.
I'll get the cons out of the way first,only one...the dispenser (packaging, whatever), I hate that no matter how well you shake it, there's always a bit flying off somewhere--onto my clothes, the shower curtain (which is quite a distance away!), my hair...sigh, you get the idea. It may be user error, I admit If anyone has found a way to dispense this stuff w/out it spitting, please let me know. Anyway, I do like this product. I love how it feels very light, covers just enough, can be built up to med coverage. A perfect Summer foundation, IMO.
I really enjoy this foundation. I will definitely say if you are looking for a heavier coverage foundation, this is not for you. I have a few problem areas (redness, acne) and for the most part it does cover it. I do use concealer over in some places though as needed. I love the fact that this is extremely lightweight, and I don't need to worry about it looking cakey. Be careful about some of the shades looking orange. The shade I have is 240 Natural Beige and it is the perfect shade for me while I am tan. I apply it with my hand, and while it does come out slightly orange, it adjusts just right on my face and does not look orange. Also to help with that I use a lighter shade of powder over it. I have extremely oily skin, and while I still get oily, this is the best foundation I have used that helps control that. One of the complaints I have with this is when you first open it, it comes out straight up white. I was disappointed because while it did state that on the packaging, I feel like some of the product was wasted. Which also leads me to being careful when dispensing the product, it is super easy to dispense more than you need, but if that happens just use it where you need extra coverage :) Definitely recommend for lightweight coverage, and for oily skins! :)
I love playing with makeup and switching things up so I figured I'd try this on a whim. I hadn't seen the commercials or anything, just came across it in the drugstore and decided to give it a go....so I wasn't sure what to expect--like, does it spray on or what???
Anyways, you shake it up and spray a clump onto the back of your hand. It comes out kinda like mousse like for your hair. The color is pretty light and deceiving--it goes on darker. I use a flat, teardrop shaped sponge(damp) to dab it on where I need coverage, and kind of blend it out. This doesn't cover very well, but it does give the skin a really nice feel. Once it dries though, if you apply a dusting of powder to set it, your skin looks luminous and natural not artificial at all. It doesn't cover entirely well, which is I guess the point of HD makeups--so it doesn't look completely fake on-camera...but for those of us not on-camera, it doesn't do a whole lot if your complexion isn't great to start with. I conceal, highlight and correct before applying and just dab this over. Once set though, it does give your skin a very smooth appearance and a very natural look. The colors though are a bit unnatural and look kinda freaky. I used the second to lightest and it goes on a little dark, clings to the skin so it doesn't blend thoroughly...but a little careful application with a sponge evens it out nicely.
I like that it's light weight for summer, and it does give my sadly-pale skin a nice bit of glow. And so far, no breakouts and my skin feels very nice with it on. Oh, and when you rinse it off at night, your skin does feel much nicer than when you wear heavier foundations or even the MMU's...It's got some kind of skin benefits to it so that's a plus.
The only downside I can see are the colors being unnatural, but they do blend out to something resembling human skin.lol And you really do need to set it with powder in order for it to actually work right.
Not too expensive and the spray-mousse type bottle is kinda kitchy so I'd def buy this again. Hope they work on the colors though for the future because nobody I know is naturally any of the colors they have....
