This product has great coverage I would have to say and It matched my skin color very well. But on the downside, its awfully heavy and if I press my finger against my cheek LOADS OF MAKEUP comes off. its way too thick so i wouldnt buy again. i tossed it after 2 weeks of using it.
This product works best during the summer months when its hot and humid. I apply it using a wet sponge to get a light/sheer coverage. If applied too heavily, it tends to cake and settle into my fine lines and wrinkles. I also suggest using a moisturizer under if you want a dewy glow.
They actually had a sample in a magazine, so I used it. It came in a shade "Creamy Natural". Let me tell you, not natural at all. Yes, I loved the texture, beautifully soft, (reminded me of marshmallows and made me hungry) and extremely blendable. But you could completely feel it on your face. I can't say anything about the shade because it's definitely not my shade. I looked like a dead person.
Well I tried this product after seeing the commercial. I've heard other people say that they felt like they were wearing nothing at all. I went to CVS and had a friend match it with my skin, which is light-ish. When I brought it home, it was way too dark, so I took it back and swtiched it to a color that looked close to my skintone. It wasn't perfect but it blended in with my skin. After a few days of using this product, it made me break out really bad, and I already have acne prone skin. Since I have combination skin, it made my skin very dry and it magnified all the flaky areas of my chin, and made my pores look huge. It also just "sat" on my skin, whenever I touched my face or rubbed it or something similar to that, it would just come right off, it even rubbed off on my clothes when I changed. By nightime, ir would be completely gone!...And it feels like a mask. I don't recommend this product except for people with normal non-acne prone skin.
I like the feel of the mousse, it's so soft. However, everything else is not so great. It is just too drying of the skin and is horrible at blending fully. The lack of colors available made it difficult for me to find one and to me they seem a little darker than what they should be. Light shouldn't look like an orange fake tan.
make my face oily in less than hour after wearing this. not long lasting. look unnatural. will definitely not buy it.
I used to use Max Factor Facefinity compact foundation (powder) but I found that it looked too powdery and cakey. My sister used this foundation so I tried it and it worked okay (plus I love the texture) so I bought one for myself.
Aprt from the Max Factor foundation, I've never used foundation before but even I could apply this well. I use a sponge and you don't need to use much to cover your whole face, my pot has lasted for about 2 months and it still hasn't run out. I use a loose powder over the top and my face looks flawless and natural.
It does 'stick' to dry skin but I always moisturise well before use and have never had this problem.
I have an oily t-zone and the foundation does not stay matte in this area all day but I haven't found one yet that does! I just use powder through the day (only once or twice) and that does the trick.
This product has never made me break out at all either which is obviously a plus point!
It's often on offer as well, I recently bought two for £10.
When you have over 1,000 reviews on a product and roughly only 50 Percent of them actually would buy this product again you have to ask yourself: Is that because people with dry skin love it, where as oily skin people hate it? Well with this product, id venture to say no.
IHO I would guess that most of the people who give this product a high review have been using the same type of foundation their whole lives. Chances are they prefer liquid foundation or a stick foundation, both of which has that heavy body to it. To properly review a foundation I think its important to try various products first. In this case...I would suggest reaching for something powder before attempting to force a pase' product to do wonders for your skin. I give it two stars because I think someone younger...maybe 16 and below? Could get a good amount of application practice from a product like this.
Has ok coverage but always looks cakey when first applied. I noticed however throughout the day my skin had a healthy natural looking glow, this could be because i use BM mineral veil over it.
