hate. this. foundation.
The only good thing i can say about it is that the packaging is pretty okay quality, and the price isn't bad.
When i put it on, my face went all powdery. It seriously looked as though i had dipped my face in flour (except for the colour!).
Even after blending and blending... just powder!
HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION PERIOD!! I look airbrushed!!!
I have blown so much money on countless foundations and nothing has made my face look so smooth and even!! I use a shade or two darker than my skin tone and i dont have to use powder or bronzer. My face looks so much better just using one product! Does not break me out either. I can not tell you enough how much i LOVE this stuff!! So cheap too! Also to some people saying it is cakey..i use a little moisturizer and then apply this with 187 brush (a little goes a long way) and i have NEVER had this look cakey!!!
NOTE: USE A STIPPLING BRUSH!! (I love MAC #187) to blend this it works awesome! I never had a problem blending with my fingers or brush but some people might judging on some reviews. I feel this product is made to use with a brush.
this is a cool product with really awsome texture but the shades that it somes in are very few and i found that it matches my skin really badly and makes me look orange also it likes to show off dread skin cells so you need nice smoothe skin for it. cant say how it holds up against oil cuz i never bothered ot wear it once i realized how bad it looked on me at home, i would buy again only if it mathced my skin 100%
It was light and blended well with my skin tone but it didn't give very good coverage.
I loved this product..Gives great coverage.I have a medium tone skin..and used honey beige medium 4 before( I looked at least 2 shades darker than my original tone) but now changed to medium 0 light beige for a more natural look.this new shade is just awsome.It gives u a airy feeling and I just love it..It smooths out just fine and I always get compliments when I wear it..and lots of people complained about packaging. I never apply it by hand I use makeup sponges and discard it when used..In this way its still hygenic..I totally recommend this product to anyone who needs great coverage
UPDATE: Still loving this stuff. But there are some tricks I definitely need to add to the review that make me love it:
(1) Do not use without moisturizer. This means that if you still have young, dewy (and maybe acne-prone) skin (the target audience from the packaging and advertising), it might not be right for you. If you use a healthy amount of moisturizer and then apply it right afterwards, you only need a TINY amount - which is the right amount to use. More than that and it will cake, and without the moisturizer it not only will cake but won't cover very well. It's the combination of moisturizer (I use L'Oreal Regeneris) and mousse that works for me. And I mean really, really works - like a combination of four department store products (primer, foundation, blemish concealer, powder).
(2) Pitch after a month and a half or so, whether it's empty or not. It loses its fluffy texture and just becomes like the stuff they used on Six Feet Under to make cadavers look good. heh. It's cheap enough, this isn't that great a loss. Just consider it "perishable." Great for a month and a half, then buy new.
(3) Get the right color. Go lighter than you think. You need to go darker than you think for the blush in this line, but not so with the foundation..... it's funky orange if it's too dark for you. Strangely enough, with a tan, the darker shades work for me and don't look orange. I don't know what's up with that. But I do know that when I'm pale, I need to go for the lighter beige.
(4) Use a tiny amount and use in conjunction with moisturizer. Yes, I know I covered this in #1. But I should have mentioned it in #2 and #3, too. heh. It's that important. Oh, and exfoliate first. It loves to cling to dead skin cells. (I exfoliate every other day with a microdermabrasion tool)
Oh, and I really like the feel of the packaging. Not so good for picking out the color, but it travels super well, falls into your hand when you're digging around in a makeup bag for it, and is recognizable by touch as well as easy to open and close with one hand. Doesn't lose its cap all the time like so many products do -- it stays put.
Back to your regularly scheduled review (which I made almost a year ago)
I love this stuff. Love. LOVE I say.
I can't believe I like a drugstore foundation this much for my 40+ year old skin... goes on so creamy and soothing... doesn't bring on adult acne... plays nicely with my moisturizer... you barely need any at all, just a little tiny dab smoothed over your whole face... ends up with an airbrushed look.
Now if they just come out with a good concealer for puffy eyes....
i hated this! it made me look really orange! it was also super cakey on and so, so unnatural. my nose gets greasy easily and has big pores and this foundation just made my nose look 10 times worse. this stuff that they call foundation made my nose look greasier because the foundation is really really greasy and weird! i will never buy this foundation again!
Gives great coverage, but feels EXTREMELY heavy on the skin. I also break out really bad when I use this stuff, and I haven't had a problem since I switched to another foundation. Will not repurchase.
This is not a good makeup for people with oily skin. It just slides off your face. I would not recommend this for any one that has acne and oily skin. It's too greasy. I don't really know. I like the colours that it comes with and I like the idea of it but it's not executed well at all.
This isn't bad for a pharmacy brand foundation. There are better foundations out there, but this is acceptable.
