I was one of those to jump on the band wagon for this! I herd too many fantastic things about it. I purchased this along with the HD powder. What a waste. First off the price is high and for my opinion mediocre quality. The pump is probably the only thing i like about it. It had NO staying power.Made my combination skin on my cheeks look dry,and on my tzone- it made it look too oily! The Hd powder along with the foundation made me look 'washed out' There are tons of shades, yet non to truly match my yellow skin without looking pinkish! In photos it looks no better than mu usual foundation. I took this back in 3 days and got a refund from Sephora. Never again!

I so wanted to love this product ,a lot of review compare this to Nars sheer glow but for me it made me look washed out maybe wrong colour but it also broke me out and the makeup didnt stay on all day not a fan will stick to my nars sheer glow. :~(

My HG foundation. Tried many many foundations before in the past and this one works by far the best. Medium to light coverage. if you need more coverage use concealer, dont pack on more foundation, it looks cakey. To the people who dont like it because of their dry skin try moisturizing first and exfoliating, it will look much better with a moisturizer and primer underneath. Also the product looks best with the mfe hd setting powder on top. Finishes the look and makes it flawless. Only problem I have with this foundation is I wish it provided more coverage in the formula, but I am just use a concealer to cover blemishes anyway so it is not needed. I highly recommend spending the 40 bucks on this product, it is by far the best foundation I have ever used. I love it because in pictures and in real life it look so natural and like you dont have any make up on! I advise everyone to try it with a moisturized, primer, and the hd setting powder on top for the best usage of this product.

Great foundation. Not sticky. I use the MAC 187 & it goes on so evenly & smoothly. I have only tried it with a makeup primer first so I'm not sure if it will apply the same without the primer.

i was extremely unhappy with this product when i first got it because it was the wrong color. i brought it in and exchanged it for my proper skin color. NOW I LOVE IT! its full coverage and lasts all day. it appears as real skin and is really hydrating. i would definitely rebuy this product. actually i have a gift certificate to sephora and this is exactly what i will be using it on. it is a little pricey but there is a lot of product and it is very worth it. BUY IT!

This foundation was so expensive so I really tried to make it work!It is amazing coverage but unfortunately it makes my skin look gross, really makes my pores look huge when they're not and makes dry skin look awful !My skin isn't even very dry !I'm so annoyed because it was so expensive , and another thing is the Sales assistant did an awful job at colour matching me, even though this line contains lots of shades mine is far too dark .

after nearly half a year of using this product, i must say it has had its ups and downs! first off, i bought this because i was sick and tired of my almay foundation as it wasnt up to par anymore and i walked into sephora in hopes of finding the perfect foundation for me. i was not concerned about spending about $40 CDN for this as when i brought home a sample to try it out first, i was definitely impressed! i would say it has really good coverage and the fact that it had a pump made it even more appealing to me (i always have this paranoid feeling that germs are getting into open bottle foundations thus causing breakouts). in addition, it was easy to blend and lasted throughout the day. however, just when i thought i had found the perfect foundation, winter decides to stroll by and now i have dry skin which is definitely not a good combination with this foundation as it leaves your skin looking really cakey and flakey by the end of the day! definitely dissappointed me! although i must admit, i had jsut run out of the hd primer and have been using the foundation on its own on top of moisturizer so that might result in the cakey result?? who knows! i feel as a foundation, it just would work better with the hd primer. on its own, its really a toss up depending on your skin type. i give it 3 lippies as its still reliable for me in the summer when my skin isnt so dry!

I chose this foundation to use my $15 Sephora giftcard on. Love, love, love this stuff! This blows any other foundation I've tried, drugstore or high end, out of the water! The coverage is amazing....one pump is all I need for a full coverage airbrush finish on my entire face. And it looks so natural...other than a few dry patches that it's clinging to (which can be solved by better exfoliation on my part), I can't even tell I'm wearing foundation! Lasts all day too! I swear, I will continue to repurchase this until the day I die!

This is def the BEST foundation i have ever used! a lot of foundations didnt leave a very flawless appearance like this one did, and it didnt fade out in the day like all the others i use do. The feeling of this product on your face is super light and barely there, and it makes it look like your not even wearing any foundation. Its amaaazing quality and def worth the money. like no other foundation ive ever tried! and im an nc42 btw

I have a pretty neutral skintone, I'm a MAC NC25-30 and I have this in 120, it's the perfect color! I have combo oily skin and this is not too oily for my skin and doesn't cause me breakouts (being that I religiously wash my face every night). It gives me a flawless finish and the coverage is bulidable. In my opinion, it definatley lives up to it's claims. This is my HG foundation. The only downside is it is pricey, so I don't use it everyday, I save it for special occasions or when I know I'm going to get photos taken of me. I alternate it with my less expensive foundations. Will definatley repurchase.UPDATE 1/5/10I had to take off 1 lippie from my original review because I noticed that after a few hours of wearing this, the foundation settles into the fine lines on my forhead, NOT a pretty sight. I was at a New Years Eve party, and exused myself to visit the powder room, and was shocked at what I seen in the mirror. The foudation had settled into the lines on my forhead, highlighting them. It made me look old. I felt self concious about it. Maybe I applied too much? Next time I'll be more careful to apply less in that area, and if I notice a difference, I'll update this review with the new info.I also need to add that this foundation DOES photograph well. UPDATE 1/14/10: I tried adding some lotion to it to make it less heavy and it just made my skin oily and still settled into my lines. I returned it. Maybe for someone with drier skin that's ultra smooth, this may work but it's not for me.
