I love how it feels on the skin, very light and it gives me a very natural look. I like to go for light makeup. I also have acne-prone skin and oily T-Zone, unlike other foundations i have used, my face doesn't become oily too soon. Could last an entire day, perhaps a little touch up here and there. Doesn't feel "cakey".
So Macy's is offering 10 days supply on foundation sample. I got this one in Bisque 4w. Sales lady didn't even test the color on me she just made me the sample by looking. I have medium skin tone with yellow under tone. This is suppose to be for warm under tone. The color matches but it turns orange after applying. This is one of the reason I don't like it.
I find it hard to blend and it does not moisturize my skin. I use a flat top powder brush to apply and it just seem cakey. My skin looks dry. Not fresh. And all the little bumps on my skin are even more obvious. I'm not liking one bit. It doesn't perform like a high end foundation.
I am seriously undecided about this product right now. My first thought after putting it on was 'wow, that looks like me, instead of a mask'. But then, upon closer inspection, it looked like me, without any coverage. So basically an expensive illuminater masquerading as a medium coverage foundation? On the one hand, I like that it actually matches my skin tone, and isn't mask-like on me (so I still look like me if you know what I mean), but on the other hand, you can still see literally every blemish, scar and everything. I wouldn't buy this (I'm using a sample I got in store) because I don't think it's worth the $$ for what it does. Will update if I change my mind, and to report on longevity/if it broke me out and whatnot.
My feelings about this foundation are somewhat bittersweet. I like it but I hate it at the same time. It's great because it gives your skin that "lit from within" look but it also gets greasy pretty quick and has absolutely no coverage. As someone with oily skin and acne scars, why the Nordstrom employee even picked this out for me I have no idea. Maybe after I get my skin in better shape I'll revisit this foundation but until then it's just another foundation at the bottom of my makeup case.
Quite a good liquid foundation. This feels really light on your skin. It also gives you quite a natural look and it does not make your face cakey. It does not block my pores. It gives me medium coverage. However, it is quite an expensive foundation but it is worth it.
I really like this foundation. I have combination, acne-prone skin with a lot of acne scarring and it covers my imperfections perfectly! I dont even need concealer ! The texture of the product is so smooth and it glides on my skin so well..The only con is that it doesn't last very long so powder and primer is needed..
I love this!!! I have finally found my HG :D
It is so light yet has the perfect amount of coverage.
It looks so smooth!! And just like skin!
No oxidising, no dry patches no cakeyness, just smooth even, complection perfection!!
I apply this over my serum (Genefique), primer (La base pro), then Effacernes concealer and apply with my Sheseido Perfect foundation brush and my skin literally couldn't look better.
Yay! The only downfall is wear. It isn't advertised as a longwear so I shouldn't be surprised. But a blotting and good powder is all you need to keep oil at bay. I use Loreal translucide in light, they are the perfect pair!
My search is finally over, thank god, so happy :)
Hands down the BEST EVER liquid foundation I have used in my life. I have combination/oily skin, and all liquid foundations are way too cakey or turn my face into an oil slick/orange by lunchtime, however, I apply this in the morning and my face is still looking flawless 12 hours later, with a bit of blotting once during the day. I have a few acne marks, brown spots and redness on my cheeks and this foundation covers them well, without looking heavy. Highly recommended. May this never be discontinued!!!
Gorgeous product and beautiful result. I found that this foundation worked well on slightly older skin...hate to call myself middle-aged, but ya...in the vicinity of! I particularly liked the way it blended in to my winter skin, even when I used my summer shade. And I was told how natural it looked. I've tried the Idole Ultra as well in the same shade, and it seemed slightly darker and more orangey...?
So I'm re-writing a review on this. I absolutely LOVED this foundation! I started using it last year because my mom used it and her skin looked flawless. The coverage is light, natural and buildable. After a few months of using this foundation, I began breaking out on my forehead (t-zone area). I have been fighting hormonal acne on my chin for a few years now, but my forehead is usually never irritated. I searched the ingredients in this, although it's water-based, it has a LARGE amount of Alcohol Denat in it. Alcohol is on the top of the list for irritants. I'm not sure if the alcohol content is what's bothering my skin, but it could be possible. There's also a few other dangerous ingredients in the product, like Talc and Dimethicone. I may have a sensitivity to these. Unfortunately, I had to stop using this even though it was my HG and absolute FAVORITE foundation (no exaggeration). I have not found anything I've liked better and I often find myself comparing other foundations to this one (currently, I'm using makeup forever HD- it's okay, but nothing special). So, if you're not sensitive to any of the ingredients I listed above, I would recommend this product. Be careful, though if you're skin is similar to mine!
