i use this on top of liquid foundation. I don't use it on its own. but its great on top of my foundation. it gives me that finished matte look.
After reading the reviews on this site, I decided to try this foundation because I ran out of MAC Studio Fix C4. I bought the Natural Beige and it's a really good match. I'm really liking this foundation. It gives good coverage without looking too powdery or chalky and has good staying power. I have a very oily t-zone and this foundation does hold back the oil pretty well. This is very cheap and comes in a sleek compact and does a good job for a cheap DS foundation. I will definitely re-purchase.
Just purchased this earlier today and so far I love it!!! It has a nice matte finish, no sparkles or anything (which i love) and gives a decent amount of coverage! Great for when I don't feel like putting on alot of makeup :)
The packaging is way to big for the amount of product but its not that big of a deal, I really like how it has a little mirror!! Perfect for any touchups.
I've only had it for a day so I don't know how well It lasts over a long period of time but first impression is really good!!
Of course I bought this because of the great rating on MUA. I am really pleased. It gives good enouph coverage and it goes on super quick so it's perfect for a quick out the door thing. I do spritz it with Avons Mark water or fix+ because I don't care for a powdery look. It works perfect. Great MU for a DS product and 40% off at walgreens right now! I am using nude (darker) for the summer and ivory (lighter color) for the winter and I'm like a NC20.
I love this foundation. It didn't break me out and it looks natural. It last all day. But the thing I hate the most about this is the packaging. It's a waste of room in my makeup bag.
So far I really like this stuff. I was using Smashbox Halo but this seems to work better. No shimmer. Good coverage. $7 as opposed to $55. And it has sunscreen. Easy compact to take and reapply if needed. Not controlling my oil but really nothing controls my oil. I would definitely buy this if you are on a budget and want to look amazing. I'm a NC 20 or so and I bought PureStay in Ivory.
This is my favorite powder foundation. I use the shade "Ivory", which is the lightest shade, and I am a MAC NW20-25, for reference. Right now, I am closer to NW20 and this matches my skin perfectly when applied with a powder brush or kabuki brush. It gives great coverage when applied with a sponge, but I find that this can get a bit chalky. When applied with a brush, the coverage is medium and the finish is a nice matte. It is not a dimensionless matte, however there is no "glow". This covers up redness very well, and I use it everyday. The only complaint I can think of is that I have oily skin on my nose and forehead, and this doesn't really control the oil. It doesn't worsen the problem though, which is good. I definitely recommend this product to anybody looking for a good powder foundation that is quite inexpensive!
I tried this product after reading all the reviews here.
This foundation has a tendency to get a bit darker as i reapply throughout the day, and it does not stay on my face at all.
My face becomes oily after 3 hours and it doesn't give very good coverage. I tried to use to as a setting powder instead and it still didn't stay on. I will not purchase this again.
I love the way this product works with my skin. It blends very well and I can apply it for light or heavy coverage. I'm also absolutely in love with the way it evens out my skin tone. I constantly receive compliments on how good my skin looks when I have this on. The price is great and the product performs amazingly.
Con wise, the packaging is a little cheap (cheap plastic, so hello broken hinges) and the little sponge it comes with gets pretty gross after a few uses.
This is a permanent in my kit!
I bought this a few weeks ago and every time I use it I get compliments on my complection. I use Nude 30 and the color works great with my skintone. I like the coverage of this powder foundation and I love the fact that it has SPF 15 Sunscreen in it.
