I actually quite like this foundation. I don't normally go for creams, usually preferring liquids, but this caught my fancy and I decided to try it! It gives full coverage and so can sometimes feel a bit heavy, however the results are quite nice (full even coverage, and a little on the dewy side) and it doesn't seem to sink into my pores, or even become cakey. Having said that, I don't think I could wear this during our humid summers (I live in northern AUS), but for the cooler months it is perfect!

Great creme make-up that offers light or full coverage, depending on the sponge (wet or dry). Although I own 4-5 great new, still in package, foundations, this is my everyday make up. Easy to apply, lasts all day, never creases, and less heavier on the face than expected. :))Gives a really flawless look, even on my spot, ugly days. Color could be a better much though, but for that I blame only me as I got carried away when I tried it on the counter of Arden and didn't check that on natural light before I buy it.

Although this wouldn't be my go to foundation, I do really like it. I use it either for special events, when I know there will be a lot of pictures taken, and especially when I have an bad rosacea flair up. I find it to a heavy full coverage, but it does make my skin appear flawless even without much concealer. The shade I have (I think it's vanilla something) matches my skin great. (for mac comparison I like NW20 with touch of NC15 mixed into it) If I'm having an oily day or if I'm doing something active I always take it with me for touch ups since it doesn't seem to last for a long time.

At first I liked the idea of a sponge on foundation for ease of application. Upon applying, I felt like it was a little mask like but was happy with the coverage so wore into work for the day. From a distance the coverage looked flawless and my powder and blush sat well on it but up close it really moved into my laugh lies and crevices beside my nose (I'm 24 so they aren't that prominent) I worked throughout the day and then when I got into my friends car in the daylight I literally SCREAMED when I checked my make up in the mirror. It looked like I used something close to plaster as my foundation. It came off in chunks on my chin and had balled up around my nose and felt heavier at the end of the day. Usually I wear full coverage foundation and at the end of the day still feel great in my makeup but I had to get this off IMMEDIATELY. Gross and thick. Would only recommend it to someone with dry skin and for them to apply it VERY lightly, maybe even with a wet sponge cause this stuff cracks! Blech

For reference: I have light-medium skin (leaning more to medium), approx. NC25/NW25?, neutral tone , sensitive skin with broken capillaries, combination skin (dry cheeks, slightly oily tzone)*The packaging is different for this product. It's now in a gold colored case.*The cosmetician at Shoppers recommended this foundation to conceal my broken capillaries, and to even out my skin tone. She matched me to Warm Sunbeige. It has a bit of a yellow undertone to it. I hate this foundation! I felt it was cakey, especially around the nose area. It made me skin look dull. I used the large sponge applicator located underneath the product to apply. My face felt somewhat greasy even though I applied a light destining of powder in my t-zone. Felt somewhat heavy. I would never repurchase.

Absolutely love this product, been using it for about 7 years now, wouldn't be without it, very good coverage and lasts me all day at work so I don't need to top up in the day. It usually lasts me up to 3/4 months which in my opinion is brilliant as I use it everyday. I literally could not use another foundation. This is the best!! :)

I bought this foundation a couple of weeks ago as the shade I found matches my skin perfectly (21 ivory) and I thought I'd give it a go.I have tried it upwards of 10 times, but I have never once left the house wearing it. I desperately want to like this foundation, but I just hate it.It is incredibly cakey, it maximizes my pores more than any foundation I've ever used (and I don't ordinarily have a problem with visible pores), and feels like a waxy mask when it's on. It is absolutely awful.I have gone from the cheapest foundations up to ones that have burned a hole in my pocket and this is by far the worst I have ever used. No amount of blending made it look any better, setting powder made it look even worse, even my Beauty Blender couldn't work its magic on it.If I'm somehow using it wrong I would love to know, but I have open-mindedly tried everything I can think of. I wouldn't recommend this foundation to anyone.

I'm a Bobbi Brown foundation girl, but I always keep one of these in my handbag for late night touch ups or weather-related emergencies. Good coverage and great price, I usually pay about €12.00 for mine at the Eliz Arden Counter and it lasts for months. It's also the only foundation my mum will use.

I was gutted with this foundation, I'm 30 and first bought this on a flight when I was 15 with the typically teenagers spotty oily skin and this was amazing covered what needed to be covered and stayed put it was a pure luxury because I never bought it again until now!. It only cost £10.00 from a discount web store and I couldn't wait to try it again, yes my skin is still as oily but only the odd spot now and again!. As I was applying it I noticed that it just wasn't covering anything my open pores never smoothed over like it used to do and it felt really light but greasy. And to make matters worse the Shade which matched perfectly when first on oxidised on me it just looked awful. On the one plus side I still love that original packaging its in and then let it go and gave it to my mum who loves it!.

I am 38 with difficult skindryoily(very)hormonal and acneI hated this. it was soooo thick and yucky that even with a thin light layer,light hand.. it just instantly came off and looked all cakey.smells very strong but smells dont matter to me just performance.besides consistency,if you can get that to work, i'd say it was instant 100% full coverage even using little, so that's good! AND I am a PPP , who never can find pale enough makeup so you won't have that problem with the ivory. Its pale enough, and nothing ever is enough for me,also,even more rare than that, is that it is pale without dreaded undertones! no pink, no yellow,no gray, a pure neutral. just a pure pale lightest ivory. not ghostlike or white or anything. as close as you can get though! I mean when youre a PPP you welcome that! for reference, people think that estee lauder double wear in ecru is a goth look, and for me that is too dark! it is unowrkably dark for me. and this elizabeth arden sponge on in ivory is way pale:) just too heavy for me yuck! not good for oily. I am still looking for a pale enough cream foundation. because i love everything about maybelline instant age rewind cream compact foundation "custom face perfector" EXFEPT the lightest color,classic ivory is way too dark for me. it has the death gray corpse tone. thats even worse than yellow orpink, so if anyone has any advice please message me:)Hope my review helped. I paid $19.99 on ebay and one thing I can say it is is DOUBLE the ounces of other products so take that into consideration with price! (made it equivalent to just $10 a compact!) in other words its equal to buying TWO compacts of most drugstore brands which cost $10 and up anyway! its HUGE!
