Okay first of all, this product is NOT available in canada!
Second I rated it a bit lower for the packaging, because it doesnt have a pump or a spatula.
This formula is amazing, I did notice my skin looking great when I use this formula. It's a bit thicker then my HG-Fit Me, so I'm going to be using this when I want slightly more coverage.
But I really hope it starts selling here in CANADA
This foundation is great for my skin in the winter because it doesnt dry it out and locks in moisture, complete with a nice dewy finish. It's lightweight and soaks into my skin quickly, leaving it soft and natural-looking. On the rare occasions that I breakout, this is gentle enough to not irritate my skin, and I can even fall asleep in it without worry of further breakouts. However, it does not last through sweat (which is a problem, as I exercise quite frequently) or even mild heat. I've learned not to wear it in the summer, as it only lasts about half an hour in the 115 degree heat (if you didn't read my username, I'm from Arizona :) )...but I do realize that this is not the case in most other places! Overall, this really is a fantastic foundation!
Pleasantly surprised, though, as usual, I thought it would be sheerer based on the reviews here. On my skin it was a medium-coverage natural finish - definitely more than I usually wear but nice for a night out or the morning after that night out. ;) Fantastic staying power, too! I never powder over my foundation but I set this one once and it stayed on through a 90-degree humid Texas summer day! I've been wearing it sheered out with moisturizer and it seems to stay on fairly well even with that.
First off, if you're looking for a full coverage foundation and flawless face, don't even bother with this.
That being said, I have pretty good skin and I just like a bit of evening out of my skin tone and covering up redness around my nose and inner cheeks. This foundation feels sooo amazing on the skin. It looks so beautiful too, natural, a tad dewy but no greasy, and never cakey. I can do up to 3 layers and it still won't look cakey.
I use a damp beauty blender and warm up this foundation on the pack of my hand, it's great. You have plenty of working time and it takes a light dusting of powder great.
It hasn't broken me out, doesn't flake or get shiny. I'm a mac N5 and Nude 40 is practically a perfect match.
Like most others, of course i'd prefer a pump.
Overall: if you don't need crazy full coverage, prefer natural finishes and want to look like a natural beauty, try this foundation.
I bought this to compare to Nars Sheer Glow, can't say it is a dupe, not the same coverage as Sheer Glow. Completely different, really. But I like it as a daytime foundation, because unlike Sheer Glow it has a sunscreen and because the coverage is more sheer. I like a foundation to be more natural-looking during the day and under sunlight. I got Healthy Skin in 40, the same shade of Healthy Skin Tinted Moisturizer I use, but I find it a bit pink. It works, once again, because it is so sheer, but I think I'll get a new bottle in 60 for the summer. Wish it had a pump, of course. But other than that, I've been happy with it. I think the glass bottle makes the good stuff in it unstable, so I don't really use it for the antioxidants and such.
I had been hearing about this product for awhile and I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it! I loved it immediately! I think what I love the most about it is the way my skin looks when I have it on! I have dry skin and my skin doesn't look flakey or oily or anything gross, it looks very pretty. It's not too dewy or too matte. It's perfect. It's a breathable foundation and is pretty light! I wish it would cover my minor blemishes but it does a pretty good job of covering scars and redness! I also wish that it had a pump so bacteria didn't get in so easily but I like the product so much that it doesn't matter! I'm definitely repurchasing!
This. Is. Amazing.
I just bought this a couple of days ago and I love it!! It's kinda crazy because I actually like this wayyyyy better than the Make Up Forever HD Foundation. This gives a more natural finish, it looks like skin rather than a mask. I'd say it's about medium coverage which is perfect for me<3
It's a good price for the quality too <3 continued >>
I first purchased this when it first came out and I pretty much liked it. The other day I had to run to CVS because I didn''t have any foundation. I repurchased this because I knew it worked and wanted to give it another chance. As of now this is my favorite for a few reasons. Considering how it's 'healthy skin' I really think that it's helping my skin? My skin isn't breaking out. And the coverage it pretty nice. I use concealer and powder over my foundation ( I like flawless finishes ). So now this is my go-to foundation :)
I bought this because I have severely dry skin and alot of people recommended it so I got it and thought that hopefully if I liked it enough and there wasn't a bad reaction I could wear it for my birthday(June 6th) And I absolutely love it. It looks like skin, the shade is perfect, blends the best I've ever seen a foundation blend and its so lightweight its like its not even there :D I'm nw20 and I got buff I was afraid to buy it because its by neutrogena and I don't have one skincare product from them that I like because they ALL make me break out and they make my eczema the worst its ever been but this is soooo fantastic for me. I hope there are more who can wear this because its so great and really is worth giving a try. My new HG! I should also add that sometimes I put this on the inner of my face and then use another foundation (covergirl natureluxe in sandstone) on the outside of my face and then LIGHTLY powder.
Only four stars because this foundation doesn't knock my socks off, but I think it does a pretty great job for a drugstore foundation at giving you the "healthy skin" it claims. I love that it has SPF, and it gives my normal skin (I'm a little oily in my t-zone but not too much) a gorgeous, radiant dewy glow for hours after I apply it. It covers redness and small acne marks very well - with only a dab of concealer needed over blemishes if you really want to make them invisible. I like the medium coverage it gives because it looks very natural. My skin doesn't feel sticky or cakey after applying - the foundation truly does feel like a second skin on my face.
Not the best color selection, but if you can find a shade that fits, I'd definitely recommend picking it up!
