I bought this because of the commercials promising that this product would stay on 24 hours and look flawless and not transfer on anything. First of all, there arent many shades to choose from. Im fair skinned and even the lightest shade was entirely too pink for me. I wear it on my face and it feels so cakey and like im wearing a mask! And it transfered on all my clothes! Dont buy!
Where do I start? I grabbed this instead of my normal Clinque makeup as I was a bit short of cash and am regretting this ever since. It doesn't give a natural look, is heavy, and unless applied well looks cakey and like a mask, despite all my attempts. It also doesn't cover my acne and along my t-zone it doesn't stay all day, even when set with powder.
I have only been using for 2 days, and already it has made my sensitive/acne prone skin breakout terribly. Needless to say I wont be buying this again, and am now left with a makeup I wont be using.
This is a fabulous foundation! I don't have it yet in my shade, but mine is Porcelain Ivory (the lightest one). It gives medium to full coverage, and it seriously does stay put ALL FREAKING DAY! You can cry, you can sweat, and it won't budge! Because this foundation is so opaque, you definitely have to blend it well, but it gives a flawless, matte finish. Also, it's one of the few good liquid foundations out there with no SPF, meaning it is photo friendly. I don't really buy from Maybelline, since they test on animals, but until I find something else this great without SPF that doesn't cost $40-50 (such as Makeup Forever), I will purchase this one again.
I absolutely love this product an di am suprised by all the negative reviews! i find it literally stays on until you wash it off; however, it doesn't necesserily cover my zits for as long. i didnt have a problem finding one that suited my color (of course, being pale doesnt make it especially difficult). yea, the bottle sucks, i agree with that, but i use a makeup sponge so i dont overdue it. overall this is the best foundation ive ever tried as far as staying power goes.
i initially wrote a pretty good review for this product but after half a year of using it, i have bad news. For oily skinned people, the bottle's promises are nothing but lies for you. It easily transfers onto anything: fingers, clothing, napkins. It just doesn't stay on well even with powder on. Next, for Asian people: I've tried 5 different bottles and the best one is still not the greatest color match for me. They just turn up way too orangey. Maybe not at first (like the first ten minutes) but after a while, the color turns darker and orangier. Lastly, the formula feels great and makes your skin feel velvety, but once again, if you have oily skin, at the end of the school day, my face looks like an oil slick. I'm not happy with this for the most part but I put up with it for now. This is why I'm currently on the prowl for a better foundation.
i got this as a gift, at first i used it alot, and i liked it, used it everyday too . it says that it doesnt clog pores, i dis agree . after i used this for a couple months i realized ive been getting pimples where i use this product the most. when i stopped using this, my pimples went away . i am not currently using this, but its pretty convenient
can feel heavy if not applied with a light hand
thick heavy formula
picking the right color can be tricky
if the correct shade is found and applied lightly this foundation is great!
Luckily for me unlike the other reviewers I can say that this foundation did fulfill what it claims on the bottle. The staying power for this on my skin, slightly dry with a couple of spots now and then, is great. Also in the UK it has a pump which is quite useful.
That's about the only good things I found with this foundation.
The colour is horrible, I tried it out in the shop like your supposed to do and somehow the testers deceived me. I have 005 in light beige, I don't know about you but usually beige colours to me are generally yellow based, this however is extremely pink, it just looks ridiculous. I can't imagine anyone with such pink skin.
Now the coverage I would say is medium to full depends on how much you put on really, however it likes to highlight the pores in between my eyebrows and on my nose, not good. It also draws attention to any dry patches and creates a horrid cakey look.
It did also cause me to break out slightly, although because my skin is dry it wasn't too bad, I imagine it would be worse for you oily skinned ladies.
In short, just avoid this foundation.
first of all i would like to say this packaging is shit. :S no pump!!!!!!! uhhhh:( any who, i have a lot of redness,no pimples,just redness and it helps cover my redness AMAZING! i also like that its a little thick, im not one for very liquidy foundations, i really like this stuff its much (i think) then the colorstay by relvon :D
I love this liquid foundation. I am constantly hot and when I sweat, it's all on my face. It really does keep it's promise of not budging when you sweat or cry! It's a little thick and you will need to blend this quickly. The packaging kind of sucks, especially when you get towards the bottom of the bottle and it takes a while to get some out. They need a pump with this!
