I purchased this because i read a lot of reviews that said it was great for oily skin. it was horrible! Even with a good primer this foundation was absolutely terrible for oily skin. it was very shiney and greasy when you put it on and it never set or dried, it stayed shiney and made my face oily right away even with powder over it and it only gets worse through out the day. it wouldnt even last three hours. i didn't expect much from a drugstore foundation but this was by far the worst foundation i have ever tried. I'm going to stick to MAC. This might be a good foundation for people with dry skin i'd assume, but if you have oily skin i suggest you do not try this.
Firstly, let me say that i LOVE Neurogena products. The are my FAVORITE products to use. However, I do NOT like this product. While I respect that some people believe that this is a good foundation, I really HATE it. The only reason I gave two lippies is because the bottle is somewhat nice looking-ish. So, I've loved the shine control and skin clearing makeups, and while at the drugstore, I decided to pick this one up, in nude. It's my usual color, but NOT in this one. I had to go two or three other times to pick up a few more bottles in the darker colors.. still they didnt work! I now have alot of bottles that I have no plans on using and Ive wasted alot of money :( After a few days of trying them, its become cakey later in the day, it looks unnatural, and it feels HEAVY and its awfully similar to skin colored paint.. I DO indeed recommend the SkinClearing and Shine Control makeups, but I warn oily skinned individuals (even combination and normal skinned people) to steer clear of this makeup!!
I love this foundation. It's not too thick, glides on, and blends easily. The only thing I don't like about it was the dewy finish and the packaging. With this foundation, powder is a must. As for the packaging,. it would be nice if it came with a pump. I always end up pouring too much and wasting it.
I can't believe my go to foundation is inexpensive and in the local drugstore but hey, it outperforms the designer brands simply because I don't break out. As my skin is aging unfortunately, it does seem to moisturize it without giving me a greased up feeling. Dewy is nice but in summer months, I touch it up with a neutrogena powder and it performs fine.
This was the first foundation i ever used. The shade matched pretty well (ivory), since i'm VERY pale. The coverage is good, but it doesn't blend! It just sits on top of the skin, hanging out until it gets brushed up against something that wipes it off. It's all melted off my face by the end of the day.
I would also get lines from where my sunglasses were or smears from touching my face.
Maybe if you had dry skin (or didn't sweat alot), and didn't need much coverage, this would be a nice foundation.
I'd read about this being a dupe for Nars Sheer Glow, which I've been wanting to try for awhile, so I thought I'd give this a shot first- much cheaper! I've been using mineral foundation for awhile but I wanted something with a little more coverage and staying power. I haven't used a liquid foundation in years and the last time I did the one I used was so thick and heavy. Not the case with this product! It goes on so evenly and the color 40 is great on me. I looked at swatches online to figure out the color that works best. The first couple times I wore it I didn't apply a powder over it so I was pretty shiny at the end of the day, but since then I've brushed on a little powder and the finish is great until I remove my makeup. It's just what I was looking for- a light to medium coverage and so easy to apply. I do wish, as others have said, that it had a pump- I'm determined to find one that works for it!
This was my first liquid foundation that I ever purchased. I feel like I got really lucky starting with this one and then branching out to find other foundations that I like or don't like. I always compare them to this one... maybe this is my HG?!?
This foundation gives you a nice dewy finish and offers light to medium coverage, and is buildable. I love the feeling of this foundation on my skin, it has a runny constancy and blends really nicely into the skin. I have experienced no to ver minimal breakouts because of this foundation. I actually use this foundation as a "break for my skin" when it gets slightly inflamed. This foundation range has more pink toned shades, which isn't a problem for me, but might be for some others.
Overall, I love this foundation. I continue to come back to it after I try a new foundation and it fails (which seems to always be the case). So this is always in my makeup drawer and makes an excellent everyday foundation. continued >>
I keep coming back to this after trying all sorts of others, from mineral to color match. I like how my skin feels, the coverage is nice, and it doesn't break me out! And I think that my skin gets better from using it! Love it!
I have acne prone skin I usually break out a lot and it was always hard for me to find a makeup that wouldn't break me out even more. I tried neutrogena healthy skin and I loved it!!!! It helped me out a lot not only did it cover up my blemishes but it helped making sure I didn't break out anymore. I love the feel it has to it it's not so heavy on my skin and it looks natural. I'm not saying it'll make your acne disappear but it really helped me on mine now I hardly break out I just love it!! The packaging is the one thing I don't like about it but overall I would buy it again!
Love the coverage of this product! So happy it didnt break me out! Not a huge fan of the packaging. I would much rather have a pump... The only reason why I would not repurchase is that I found the undertone of the foundation to be..kind of reddish? It didnt look all that natural. But for those with pinkish undertones, a great buy!
