I think that this is a great product for the price. It goes on to leave a very fine/sheer finish. I use the caramel colour but, the reason why i would not purchase this again is beacuse when i had my photo's taken with this product on, i looked like a ghost!! definitley looked too white for my skin!!!! However, it looked fine in natural daylight and in the club. Its a shame that in England we don't have the same range of colours for darker skins (only 3) as they do in the States.
The product worked well with my oily skin, it left me looking matte for ages and i did not break out. Overall a decent product - just don't have your photo taken with it on!!
Color and texture are nice, but this product doesn't wear well. The formula seems to break down after a couple of hours and the results are not good.
When I tried this in the shop it was a good match for my fair skin. However, when it had been applied to my face for a few hours I was simply orange. I didn't look fresh face and flawless, and I don't even have blemished skin. The coverage was poor whenever I had zits come up and drew more attention to them. It also gave me dry patches of skin after a while as well, which I was not impressed with as I usually have normal, clear skin. A friend of mine had a similar problem. Overall, not impressed.
This is amazing, very easy to apply..just dab your clean fingers gently into the mousse, and then just gently dab the residue from your fingers onto your face covering lightly all over. thats the best application technique, the only thing with this, if you apply it wrong it really does look like freshly dead skin is visible on your face, almost as if you use retin a..so take my advice.
I don't use this product any more as I've switched to revlon colorstay. But anyway...I really wanted to like this product. I liked the idea of a mousse and it gave my skin a really nice, natural looking texture/ finish when applied and it gives good coverage over blemishes. The colour range is good too-I found one that was an excellent colour match for my skin.
I had a few problems with it though. Firstly, it seemed to wear off my face within a couple of hours. Secondly, I have an oily t-zone and dryer cheeks, and as it began to wear off, the foundation accentuated the dryer patches-not a good look! Also I don't like the packaging-the pot looks nice but it is not at all practical for carrying around-which ironically you need to since it wears off so quickly! I also think that it was making my spots worse, as they started to clear up when I switched to my current foundation.
I think this foundation may be better for someone who has oiliness all over their face, but even then I don't think it would last well. I do wish it had worked for me because I really did like how it goes on when you first apply : (
I liked how light it was, but it didn't offer much coverage. It would be great for just a 'slap on ang go' type of thing. like after a long day, or swimming or something like that.
This foundation goes on differently everytime I use it. Sometimes goes on really well and looks flawless and other times goes on patchy and flakey. However i always seem to go back to it. Gives good coverage and is easy to blend but doesnt really lasts long like most foundations. I have to set it with powder even though its supposed to be matte. The product comes in a pot which looks nice but i hate the idea of dipping my fingers in as it gets into my nails! Also doesnt really come in a wide range of colours but overall i guess this is a decent foundation, probaly second or third in my list of foundations ive tried.
This blends on like a dream and has a nice mousse-like consistency (this is the only good thing about it). It looks great for a while, but in less than a couple of hours it started flaking off and left my face looking rough and patchy...the worst thing is I got an allergic reaction to it, and my skin started breaking out into tiny bumps all over my forehead and cheeks after using this for a few days...yuck...the packaging is also unhygienic and this product has no SPF...I'm chucking this one out and going back to my Loreal True Match liquid foundation.
I don't use this anymore, but before when my skin wasn't as clear as it is now this was a great foundation for maximum coverage. Yes, when you're wearing it you CAN tell that you're really wearing make-up, but between looking like I have make-up or bad skin, I chose the make-up look personally. Great price too, for the quality.
You know, I actually like this foundation. It provides great coverage, which you can build up without it getting cakey or settling into fine lines. The finish is in between matte and satin and makes my skin look so smooth and perfect even if I just use a small amount. The colour was a perfect match (Classic Ivory) but the only problem is, and the reason I took off one lipstick is because my face tended to get oily after only a few hours, particularly my t-zone. I am not sure if this product is supposed to control oil but it sure made me shiny while other foundations don't-regardless of wether or not I use translucent powder on top :(
For reference, I have combination skin and colours: NC25, LM Sunny Beige, CG Classic Ivory and Buff Beige.
