I bought this after reading the reviews here, i got myself a G6 Golden Caramel shade and it matches my yellow undertone tan asian skin perfectly. It's very light in texture,, glides on smoothly ( a little goes a long way) medium to heavy coverage i would say but the finish is very very natural like my second skin. I'm impressed! it covers up my acne scars up to 90% yet the finish is still very natural. this is a great foundation and i hope i don't break out from it. looks like its good for winter but not sure if it will slide off my face in summer. if it does, i can go back to my revlon color stay in summer anytime.
Great foundation for the price. However, I would love if they could create a shade somwhere between W4 and W5. Also, a pump dispenser instead of the screw top bottle would be awesome. Will buy again.
The first time I used this foundation was wa-a-a-ay back in the day when it first came out. In a word, I was completely under-whelmed. It barely had any coverage and seemed rather sparkly. Not good. However, much later I started noticing that the new bottles of the stuff had a pretty decent SPF rating on them. Out of nothing but sheer boredom, I tried it again. Wow-sa! I'm truly diggin' on this stuff! The W1 (or is it "1 W?") is a perfect match for me and the coverage is medium to full...depending on how much is applied and how you apply it. I use one of those cheapie disposable cosmetic sponges, FYI. So far, I'm pleased with this stuff. The addition of SPF was, in my humble opinion, is what sent it right over the edge from "blech" to "Oh, my, yes!"
Too bad, I was hoping to like this product. It goes on smoothly but it makes my skin feel oily an hour later and I have to blot all day to keep it under control. Maybe it will work better in the winter when my skin needs a little more moisture? I plan to use it up and then not repurchase.
I love this foundation. It was on sale, so I tried N2, which is a PERFECT match for my skin. So many friends and colleagues have told me I look rested. Even my husband said I was 'glowing.' The formula is light, silky and goes on flawlessly with a sponge. I put my True Blend in a tiny squeeze bottle which holds about half the foundation for ease of application and cleanliness. Fantastic.
I use w1 Porcelain.
The matching for me is not the problem, I thought this was very over-priced for what you get. I goes on very, very THIN. I like something thicker. For me, I'm very pale, it did not even out my skin at all. I usually purchase Infallible, it's thicker and evens out my skin so I can then do powder.
This foundation, I have done 2 layers and my skin looks almost the same. The red is still there, the lines, freckles everything. When this is gone, I'll go back to something thicker like Infallible that evens me out. But if you like something very thin that does really about nothing for your skin, this could be for you!
I received this in a swap from a very nice MUA'er. W2 matches my skin perfectly - it feels light on, i dont notice it much at all! I have gotten several compliments on my skin since I started wearing this, so as of right now i'll repurchase when i run out!
Finding a shade was relatively easy, considering this is DS. I have N3 Nude Vanilla though I use N7 Nude Amber for the Powder Foundation. Though this matches my skin tone in the morning, it tends to oxidise around midday and give a tight look to my face. This fares better with a primer underneath - then there is hardly any oxidation and I don't get the tight look, but is too much trouble for everyday use.
I like how you can find the right, or at the very least, the close color match to your skin; however when i put this stuff on, no matter what kind of application this stuff just looks soo cakey! it doesn't even last long on me. I feel like this foundation is clogging up my pores and it definitely feels like I have something sitting on my skin. Definite no repurchase here.
I have been purchasing this for a few years now because of the many bogo deals at drugstores. I switched to mineral makeup recently but I still bought some when I saw this on sale!
Usually I only apply it to certain areas and I don't use a lot of it, I just blot a bit on with a sponge wedge. I really like this product because it matches my skin tone and I find that it's very light on my skin and not cakey at all.
