I have dry skin and this was the first foundation I've found that doesn't make my face look dry and flaky after I've applied it. It looks smooth and flawless! And it lasted ALL DAY AND NIGHT. My skin even felt better than usual after I had washed my face at night. Unfortunately, after about a week the pores on my chin got clogged and it was either this product or Cover Girl Ultimate Finish that caused it. I was so sad because I really liked this product.
This is actually a pretty good foundation. I tried it in Buff Beige and the color was nice. It leaves a slightly powdery finish though and that kind of accentuated my dry areas.
I really like the coverage, consistency and color match (buff beige) BUT i found out it makes me break out really bad :(
Just mediocre IMHO. It gives a light/medium coverage which is nice, but I found everything about the foundation just alright, nothing spectacular. I have combination skin and thought this would be good to use since it's winter, and it was just fine on my oily-ish tzone, though it did feel heavier than other foundations.
This is a very nice average foundation. It gives me a light and natural look, which i really like. I wouldnt get this if u want a very made up face. I have it in Buff Biege and it suits my color very nicely. Rave from me!
I love this foundation...and I've tried so many expensive ones. It glides onto my skin, gives me a natural look...I use soft honey...and with a dusting of loose powder, stays put all day. The thing I like best about it is that I cannot see any pores on my face when I use this. Since reaching my late 40s, and thinking I needed a more expensive foundation, my pores have been more noticable. This is my HG foundation.
I thought it went on kind of heavy, and the coverage wasn't very good. I have combination skin, acne prone, with slight redness around the nose/chin area. This foundation was cakey; it went on smoothly enough, but dried too quickly. I have fair skin w/ freckles, and the color was too pinkish. I wouldn't buy this again.
I don't know how everyone is finding this to be so great but for me this product gave me no coverage at all. It was like putting some moisturizer or lotion on my face or something.
Don't tell anyone, but I got this from my mother on a visit home. (Hey, I could tell that Classic Ivory--a great yellow-toned shade-- wasn't her color...) Feels great on my normal-ish (can get oily) skin. Wonderful, blendable color and sheer, camoflauging coverage. Rave from me.
I think that "all day hydrating" is rather misleading because I have combination skin that can get very oily sometimes. I first bought this foundation when my skin was feeling a little drier than usual. However, I find that I love it even when my skin is oilier. I dust a little loose powder over it and I don't get shiny until mid afternoon - which is a big improvement over products I've used that are made for oily skin. I'm using creamy natural, which is a perfect match for my skin.
