I used this product for YEARS. I really enjoyed, but one major flaw I saw in this product is that it is not photo friendly. After working in cosmetics, you discover that some foundations are not photo friendly and they will get a reputation for it. This simply means that the makeup does not photograph well, I know it seems trivial, but if you have a special event and you're wearing a foundation that does this, your complexion will look off in photos. It's almost like the flash goes right through the foundation coverage. With that being said, I think this product is ideal for a more oily skin, it is a bit drying and if your skin is very dry, the makeup won't set well.
I am around the shade NW45 and I bought the Caramel 02 shade. The colour seemed to be a good match for me and it has a very yellow undertone to it. This foundation seems to be the only foundation I've used so far that doesn't melt on my face at all even if I use my coconut oil underneath, I think it lasts around 6-8 if not sweating constantly or have a fast paced job. There is a slight smell to it but nothing that would linger on the skin. So far, I like this product since it has some good coverage and can be layered so that you can achieve a full coverage effect while still looking quite natural (though if full coverage people can tell you have foundation on), as I am a guy and with pigmentation and acne this is really good if you want that no makeup makeup look :) The finish is of course matte and only becomes a slight bit not shiny but skinlike after around 3 hours. This can be used as a concealer over the foundation as well. Also, little of the product is needed to provide good coverage as the more you buff it in the more coverage you get while it also gives a natural finish.
brought this foundation today and absolutely love it so far!
i got it in the lightest shade, 004 light porcelain as i have very fair skin and i thought it looked a little orangey and darker than it should have been in the pot but i was pleasantly surprised when i put it in my face as it was almost a perfect match to my skin colour, and not orangey at all. the texture of this foundation is lovely, as i find some liquid foundations a bit heavy this mouse foundation was perfect. i would say it gave medium coverage, but can easily be built up. i put on quite a light layer and all my small spots/blemishes were covered, but i would say if i built it up a bit and used more, it would cover my bigger spots also. i put a light moisturizer on first to stop it caking up and i would recommend to everyone to do this as i did not cake up at all!
Probably my third jar over the years.
I love this product, and although I can not use it throughout most of the year, I blame my extremely dry and sensitive skin. Will work wonders with slightly oily skin.
The product is very affordable and provides a great full coverage which lasts throughout the day.
My skin is very fair and I wear porcelain with top brands, yet I am in love with the sand shade of this foundation- blends with my skin and provides a sun kissed look.
I wear this foundation during the summer months as I find my skin most hydrated then. Friends wear darker shades, can work as a great affordable bronzer.
Lovely glass packaging, easy finger application due to mousse texture. Will repurchase.
It does give good coverage but it's a bit too cakey for me.
It goes all dry and weird around my nose and chin, separates completely. It does give me decent coverage and is super easy to apply, but it's just not nice. The pots really don't last that long before they go gross and impossible to apply, and I just can't find the right shade for me. All their pale colours are too cold and rosy for my olive skin. The only decent olive colour is nude and that's just bright orange!
hate. do not recommend.
I really like this foundation it feels amazing on my skin it doesn't have the coverage on my freckles though which would be better although it gives a flawless effect !!! I will buy this again ! 🚊🚍🚎🚍🚇🚌🚇🎫🚟⛽⚠
I've tried a lot of foundations from a lot of different brands and I always return to this.
I took a break from this foundation recently and tried using Almay's Clear Complexion and Neutrogena Healthy Skin, but I eventually returned to this. I wanted to find a foundation that was good for my skin since I was having a horrible time managing my acne.
However, nothing gives me a glowing look, matches my skin tone, or provides full coverage throughout the day like this foundation. I have extremely oily and acne prone skin and like having full coverage. This does the job in making my skin look great and it matches my skin's color perfectly!
Full coverage, airbrushed look, controls my oily skin, covers my acne, looks soft and glowly, you only need to use a small amount
Can get a little cakey if you use too much, you should use with a makeup brush any other method might force you to put too much on and I don't think it looks as good using your fingers or a sponge.
If you don't like this foundation try using their Dream Liquid Mousse. It provides less coverage, but works great! I'll switch back and forth between the two.
This foundation is tricky in so many ways. I have this in the color dark 2 (caramel) it matches me perfect. I tried applying this with a foundation brush and it felt like I was painting. I tried a sponge and the sponge soaked up a lot of the product. I think the best way to apply this is using a stippling brush. I use this foundation when I'm around my boy friend and I want a soft natural look.
Comes is a really cute jar I think I will reuse after.
Dries to a matte finish
Last all day especially if set with a powder.
Gives a airbrushed matte look which I love.
Decent price could be cheaper.
Only has 2 or 3 shades for women of color I think.
Really hard to apply, little flakes roll up and fall off.
I think it breaks me out, I see little white heads forming when I apply this.
Overall I will buy this again that's if I don't find something better.
I wish it had more product in the jar.
This matte mousse made my skin looked orange. Even though the texture was soft and easy to blend, the color turned out horrible. It looked like I had an awful fake sprayed tan on and it did not even last. After wearing it for 3 hours, the actual foundation faded, leaving uneven orange patches on my face.
