This is not my primary foundation - I use MAC - but in terms of a lower cost product to blend just a little bit of a darker color with my MAC - this is the one. I think this is an excellent product for a drug store brand and there is such a great color selection, almost anyone can match their complexion to it. Good product for the price.
This has been one of my main foundations for the last two years. It doesn't cause breakouts or my make my skin oily throughout the days. Like its name, it is super blendable and I like to use this foundation to mix with my regular moisturizer on the days I want light-medium coverage (mostly in the summers). The price is reasonable, and this small bottle of foundation lasts you for more than a year, I don't know how long exactly that one bottle should last me because I usually throw them out and get a new bottle before I've finished using one up.
I gave the packaging a 3/5 because it's not a pump bottle, I waste around 40% of the foundation by accidentally pouring too much out.
Overall I will repurchase until I can find another brand that's better.
I have very fair skin and Porcelain W1 is the PERFECT shade for me. YAY---I've had so much frustration with foundations being too dark. I find this foundation to have a medium to light coverage that is somewhat buildable. It has a very smooth, light, natural matte finish, and never looks cakey. It does not make my skin break out. Unfortunately, it tends to crease a little, especially around the nose. It also wears and rubs off fairly easily, so definitely wear a primer!
This foundation is a light to semi medium coverage. It has a little bit of shimmer in it but you can't tell when it's on. I hate the bottle, there's no pump. I was able to find my perfect shade easily. So it's a hit.
There are a few different colours to choose from so you just pick the closest to your skin tone ( i use rose ivory). Beacause i have pale skin i have always found foundations to make me look paler or give me tide marks around my jaw. This is the first foundation thats really does match my skin. I’m not sure how it works but it works with your skin to adapt to your colour and give a better texture to your face. Its really easy to blend in and it gives great coverage. Also i have used been using maybelline matte mousse for a year which does give great coverage but my skin always felt clogged and cakey and i have always suffered with spots. Since changing to the L’oreal foundation a month ago i have only had 1 spot (i didnt remove my makeup 1 night and woke up with a spot, ive learnt my lesson!) and i think this is beacuse it covers but it still let’s your skin breathe.
I think the price is really good because the bottle is 30ml and i don’t even use a full pump for my whole face so it should last a while, making it great value for money

I really like this foundation. Most foundations look to orange on me, but the neutral catagory in this line is a good match for me. It's the closest match to my skin color that I've found yet, and I've tried dozens of foundations. It provides a very natural finish, which I like because I'm sick of foundations looking cakey or oily on me. I would consider it a medium coverage foundation, and paired with the concealer it covers most of my acne and scars. Its not long wearing or full coverage, but that's ok with me because I think the revlon cs I was using was just too difficult to remove and this one doesn't look mask-like. I will definelty repurchase because it is a good price and looks great. I will update if it causes me to breakout. The only thing I dont like is that its thick and you have to pour it out, which can be difficult and I end up pouring too much which is why I took off one lippie. I love this line because you can get the foundation, powder, concealer, and blush once you figure out your shade and undertone.
Edit~I've been using this awhile now and its starting to look orange on me. Every foundation I try seems to work at first then turn oragne. Took of one lippie for that, however I still like the formula. Won't repurchase though.
i really like this foundation. i honestly feel like i've found my HG, these are the reasons why:
1. The price - at only $9 a bottle, this foundation is more realistically replaceable than a $42 bottle of laura mercier (of which i was using but can no longer use due to reasons concering money)
2. The color selection - there are so many shades to choose from, with several undertones, its almost impossible for anyone not to find their perfect shade. I was fortunate enough to find a shade that blended seamlessly with my natural skin tone, W7- caramel beige.
3. The texture - althought its sheer, this foundation glides on so smooth, the consistency is so even and smooth, i think it improves your skins texture. Its also buildable for more coverage.
4. the sunscreen - the spf of 17 is also great so that i don't have to necessarily moisturize my face with a moisturizer that has an added spf, (although it might be a good idea to anyway).
that this foundation doesn't have a pump isn't really bothersome, although it would be better to have a pump in terms of cleanliness.
i would definitely purchase again.
I have never found a great foundation for my skin... I have never needed it until after I had a child, to be honest. So, that being said....
This product is pretty good. The match is great (I use shade w3) and it covers up the little inconveniences and blemishes decently. Not great for
heavy duty dark circles, not great for applying (I have the one with the silver cap) but otherwise, a pretty solid product. The coverage is medium, I'd say. I can still see my freckles after applying, but I consider that a good thing. It doesn't clog my skin, comes off easily and isn't irritating. No weird smell or side effect. It wears off after about 8 hours, but whatever. I'd recommend it and buy it again.
Not super impressed. Product is very liquidy and thin. I really have trouble blending this for some reason. It dries quickly and it seems like the more I stipple on the less actually sticks to my skin. I have to use more concealer with this than most other medium foundations. My redness on my cheeks isn't covered at all and I don't have very much redness. It also emphasized my dry skin. Will not repurchase, but probably won't return.
I personally love this foundation. It provides medium coverage that I mix with a little lotion to give it a creamier texture and make it a tad glowy. I've used it for about 3 years now. I've tried bare minerals, chanel, nars, and countless others, and I like the $10 foundation more. I think with make-up it's not necessarily about only wearing one brand or solely devoting yourself to department store cosmetics, but to try them all and find out for yourself what looks best on your skin regardless of the price or brand name. This foundation does not make my eyes water like the more expensive make-up, the coverage is great, isn't oily, and it doesn't make me break out.
