This foundation is terrific! It has the blendability and coverage of the maybelline dream liquid mousse foundation but the finish isn't unnaturally dewy and being true match it has warm shades without the pink undertones. Also, has nothing in it to cause break-outs. I love the pump and the spf which is on the high side for a foundation. Will keep re-purchasing!
Colour matching is not actually that great for this line even though it is True Match. I found that this foundation actually oxidizes slightly. Also, the warm shades are still slightly pink to me.
A very liquidy formula that looks dewy on the skin.
Light coverage. Will even out redness but spot concealing is needed for acne scars/ darker blemishes.
Maybe 3 hrs before retouching is needed.
I have combination skin and acne. The consistency of this foundation is fluid like allowing you time to blend it into your skin before it dries. I find that the coverage is quite sheer if you apply this foundation with your fingers. Also because its so sheer, you will beed to set this with a powder. It does not last all day. After about three hours, I would have to touch up (this is during the winter). Over the summer, i would need to touch up in an hour and a half to two hours. The pump is very convenient, i usually use half a pump. If you are looking for a light coverage foundation, you might like this. Overall, I wont be purchasing again since there are so many other foundations out there for the sane price but perform better.
This product was pretty disappointing for me for a number of reasons. First off, it really isn't suitable for my oily skin; it has an extremely dewy finish and extenuates oily areas on my face. It also looks a bit unnatural because it tends to sit on the surface of the skin, which gives your face an ashy color and feel.
I love love love this foundation!!! I've gone through two bottles of this. I have very pink undertones, and this has yellow undertones, so it balances it out for me. It looks so glowy, I love it! It makes me look pore-less. And it doesn't make me break out, which is suprising because I break out at the drop of a hat. Love this!!!!!
I really wanted to like this foundation because when I first applied it my skin looked FLAWLESS! However, it does not wear very well. After an hour or two I begin to become extremely oily even though I do not have oily skin, and it settles into pores and fine lines. I really tried to make this foundation work, using it with every regime of skin care and primer I could, but it always broke up after an hour or two. It is probably a great foundation for women with extremely dry skin, but if you have even normal skin, it will be too hydrating for you.
I've had this foundation for about 5 to 6 months but I never really used it enough to know if I liked it enough but lately I've really been liking a luminous finish to my face. I have extremely dry skin and this foundation has really saved me. It keeps my skin moisturized all day. I don't really have many breakouts but I do have a lot of discoloration and redness and I find that this does fairly well with coverage for me. As far as the lasting time, I would say probably about 8 hours with a primer under it and powder on top. But over all I really love it and would mainly recommend it for people with extremely dry skin.
I have very hard skin to Match and this actually blends well and gives you a really nice glow to your face. I don't have bad skin so the light coverage is perfect. Better than most foundations I have used!
This is a hard one for me to rate. There are some things I really liked about it, and others...not so much.
When it comes to foundation there are 3 things that are most important to me. Long-lasting, lightweight, and full, yet natural looking coverage. I've tried countless drugstore brands Loreal, Rimmel, Cover Girl. But I have the same problem with them all. They don't last. Even the ones that claim to last 16 or 25 hours don't last anywhere near that long on my face. I'm lucky if I can make it last 4 hours with decent coverage. It looked great when I first applied it, but after only a few hours (generally 3-4) I could see redness and shine peaking through. By the end of the day, I had only minor traces of the make-up on my face. It was frustrating to say the least. When I bought this foundation, I didn't have any clue how to find the right shade. In a couple of other drugstore foundations, nude looks best on my skin. But in this foundation, I had no idea if I was warm, cool, or neutral. So I bought the shade W3. I have since learned that I, in fact, have a cool complexion. But I didn't know that then. The W3 was a bit too light. It didn't make me look super-pale, but it was definitely a little off. I unexpectidly ran out and had to quickly buy some foundation before work. I didn't feel like dealing with the headache and hassle of trying out a new foundation, so I bought another bottle of this. The second time I purchased the N3 (Natural Beige) it seemed like a much better match to my skin. But even so, It looked great when I first applied it, but after only a few hours (generally 3-4) I could see redness and shine peaking through. By the end of the day, I had only minor traces of the make-up on my face. It was frustrating to say the least. I really like the pump on this product. I prefer the pump over just a open bottle top. It makes it so much easier to control how much comes out. I also have very sensitive skin and this didn't give me any itching or irritation at all.
I also wasn't crazy about the coverage of this make-up. It definitely isn't a full-coverage make-up. I would describe it as light-medium coverage. It did cover the redness and imperfections on my face, but like I said earlier, it lasted at most 4 hours. I'm not one to touch my face a lot, but I do tend to be oily on my nose and cheeks especially. I also have a lot of redness on my cheeks, nose, and forehead. If you have normal skin with very few imperfections, and need only moderate coverage, this would be a great foundation. But I wouldn't recommend this to anyone with oily skin. It just doesn't stay on well. I won't be purchasing this foundation again.
In my opinion, a much better option for around the same price is Boots No 7 Beautifully Matte foundation. It is oil free, lightweight, hypoallergenic, long-lasting, and full coverage.
I absolutely love this foundation. IVe tried soooooo many different kinds and this one is by far my favorite. It not only matched and covered well, but it made my skin healthy and clear. It's true to it's name! I'm currently using Maybelline dream liquid mousse because I wanted to try that, and I don't like it as much. Will be going back to this as soon as I run out. I hav oily skin with a golden olive tone. I wear shade N3 natural buff chamois
