Dude, this has to be the best drug store foundation I've ever tried, and I think I've tried them all. I'm not a huge fan of powders so I've always looked for the most natural-looking liquid foundation. The coverage is probably like a medium coverage. The only thing I have to be careful with is when I get it in my eyes by accident. It stings so bad, even if it's not in my eye. Well, besides that, I was talking to my friend one day when we just started talking about makeup. She asked me if I even wear any! I'm like, "DUH!". I guess that's how natural it looks. I wanted to buy it a different shade a few weeks ago so I got a lighter one. I looked like a ghost in it, but I gave it to my fair-skinned friend and she looks great in it! She loves it too and thanked me so much for it! I think it's great I'd recommend it again!
Wow, I've finally found a DS foundation that actually matches my ghostly pallor! It's amazing. Ok, first off for reference, I am NC10 ish, with extremely oily skin, random breakouts, acne scars, and very uneven skin. I bought this in W1 (the lightest in the warm category). This foundation gives you about medium coverage, it is buildable if you wanted more. I haven't had any breakouts from this product. The finish is somewhat glowy though, not as much as others, but it doesn't have the stark matte look like MUFE Mat Velvet. I always powder over, and prime under, and even with that I still have some blotchiness towards the end of the work day. I only removed 1 lippie because of this, since I have yet to find any foundation to stand up to my over working sebaceous glands.
I have ridiculously pale, verging on transparent skin...I have been looking and looking for a foundation and just picked this up real quick at Target... this is the only foundation I have been able to find thus far that actually matches my skin... It covers well, blends wonderfully, leaves my skin looking like SKIN and not like make-up. I have a huge problem with foundations because I do wear a full face and it always looks like a mask when I'm done... I don't know if it's my application or the foundation, but when I'm using this, I don't have that problem. I will definitely be buying this again.
This foundation is very smooth. The texture is not too watery nor too creamy, which makes it easy to blend and still has some coverage. Its finish is pretty natural-looking. I have some red acne scars so I use the concealer from the same series and they work well together. I always need to use powder to set the make up otherwise my face gets oily in a few hours. I don't experience break-out with this foundation (probably because I'm taking Accutane at the same time.) But one of my friends said that this product caused zits on her face. The broad color selection is the reason I bought it. It's really hard to find a perfect shade like this in drugstores. But I'm worried that it might cause break-out once I stop taking Accutane so I don't think I'll buy it again (there're always newer and better products coming out anyway).
This is actually good. It covers my tiny scars but it doesn't cover the bigger ones (I have acne). I think it does break me out I don't really know but I still like it because it's the perfect color and I like how it's so easy to blend!
I tried on the little swatch that they had in the store, and it looked like a perfect match, when I tried on at home, I looked very pale with it. So I mixed it with an avon foundation 3 tones darker than me. I got a perfect match. It doesnt cover that much, but it looks natural and doesnt feel heavy, and most important it did not make me break out, which was my biggest fear, before applying makeup I wear a primer, the avon magix primer and the foundation stays on a lot, I havent tested it on all 8 hour day use, I will try it soon and give you my experience. Though I wish, it wouldve been a perfect match without mixing it.
This is my first d/s foundation since high school. I'm usually a foundation snob, but recession calls for desperate measures. So glad I caught this on BOGO...it's super awesome. It has a wonderful consistency, blends well, nice medium coverage. I usually use concealer under my eyes but am going to start skipping this step for everyday because the foundation covers so well. And I love the finish...I don't have to finish with powder (or blot during the day). I'm sure I'll get my snob back on....but I will always keep this in my foundation arsenal.
*Update* I'm NC45 in MAC terms and use Loreal True Match in N8 (Cappuccino).
This product was not right for my skin type. It looked cakey on my skin and not natural at all. For me the product was not too oily, I found it too matte-looking. I bought the matching powder and was not fond of that either. I bought this as a cheap alternative to my usual foundation hoping for good results at a lower cost but sometimes you really do get what you pay for.
Pros: I found a color to match my skin and although it isn't perfect it does the job. It applies nicely and looks smooth after its applied.
Cons: It's VERY oily. I need to blot my face every couple hours. It also starts rubbing off after a while which is a problem if you like to rest your hand on your chin or something like that.
Although I appreciated the amount of color options available to me (as I have a olive skintone with hints of pink - tricky!) ultimately I was let down by the extreme oiliness of the product.
Upon first application it appeared smooth, and wearable, but within 30 minutes I looked like I had run a marathon with the amount of shine that came off of my face. It was a real let-down.
