this is a foundation that I have actually repurchased. I am always on the look out for that perfect color and coverage. I am fair with just a tiny yellow undertone, and rosacea on my cheeks. I use monistat as my primer.(tried a ton of others. this is the best) because I have large pores on my nose. I apply this with a foundation brush after dotting the product all over my face. Unbelievable. I have never described a foundation as truly looking airbrushed, but this one is the closest I have come, including high end product lines. I love this stuff.
I absolutely love this foundation, it is the only drug store foundation that does not get me oily. At first it did break me out but a week after using it my skin got used to it. I wear it to work and i only have to blot once, maybe twice. it's best to used with a flat top brush or beauty blender. I do wear matte finish primer just cause I have super oily skin. And it has a pump!
Semi-matte finish, medium buildable coverage. Really love this foundation - I don't have bad dark circles under my eye, and I can use this as undereye concealer as well. I can't speak to how well it would work for those with more pronounced dark circles though. It sets quite nicely, not too quickly, you still have time to blend, but then it really sets, none of that tacky/sticky feeling. Overall this is definitely one of my top favourite foundations and a total repurch!
This is it. I pretty much can't live without this stuff. I've tried a lot of things, and my oily skin pretty much everything. I've also tried other full coverage foundations but found that I'm either getting weird color or it breaks me out.
This, right here is my HG. I have some hyperpigmentation from acne, and this one does a great job of covering up the light ones, so I don't have to go over everything with a concealer (although I still need to spot conceal). I like that I can get good results with a dry application (I use Real Techniques Expert Face Brush), but I can also get really good results with a wet sponge.
Best part? I don't even have to use powder, and it actually looks better throughout the day. I don't have to touch up (which is AMAZING since I'm really busy at work), and after 12 hours of having it on, it just looks slightly dewy. I'm still in awe every day. I've even worn this for 23 hours and it still looked great!
I tried this out for a month before reviewing, and for my acne skin prone, this has not broken me out, but I also make sure to cleanse thoroughly as this is a bit on the heavy side.
Also, as a side note, this is basically the same formula as the Queen All Day Flawless foundation. There is a slight difference-- the Queen formula, to me, stays more matte (it's foundation, concealer, powder as opposed to Stay Fabulous, which is primer, concealer, foundation). I actually combine shades from both lines.
I will pretty much hoard a fridge-full this if they ever discontinue.
I have acne prone skin and an oily T-zone and acne scarring , and I love this foundation ! I have been using it for 2 months and I'm not changing my foundation !
IF YOUR OILY ...BUY..BUY..BUY ITS 3 IN 1 AND IT LASTS.
I AM REVIEWING BECAUSE IT SO HARD FOR OILY GIRLS TO FIND FOUNDATION.
I PICKED UP THE COVERGIRL QUEEN COLLECTION WHICH HAD A WIDE RANGE OF COLORS. I WORE FOR A WEEK AND IT LAST MOST DAY WITH POWDER I REALLY LOVE THE STAYING POWER.
I HAVE A REVIEW ON YOUTUBE-UNDER FEARLESS FEMME.
ALSO YOU CAN FIND ON SALE AND COUPONS TO PURCHASE ITS VERY NICE FOR DEPARTMENT STORE FOUNDATION.
NO BREAKOUTS NO PROBLEMS.
I love this foundation! I'm going to be going on my fourth bottle of this stuff. It's a great foundation for light-full coverage. I say that bc I find this foundation to be very buildable. Just one pump will usually do the job for me. Sometimes I use a pump and a half for extra coverage. The only thing that would make this foundation SO much better is if it was oil free. I'm also not crazy about the packaging and I usually ditch the lid bc I just prefer it without it. Also, I find that my foundation stops pumping when there is still a lot of product in the bottle. Such a nuisance! I can't rly complain about much else though. It's a great, affordable foundation and I would recommend this to anyone. I use mine with a beauty blender that I purchased at Sephora or my real techniques expert face brush that I purchased at Ulta.
I was disappointed when I first tested out this foundation. I've heard and read many great things about this foundation, and the YouTube beauty guru ItsJudyTime said some nice things about it. However, I found that it transfers, which I don't like in a foundation. The lasting power was pretty good. For the most part, I think it stayed on my face for around 6 hours; I didn't need to touch up. But then again, I didn't have too many blemishes on my face. It does a fairly good job as a concealer for my dark circles. Also, it didn't feel too cakey on my face after applying two coats. Overall, the foundation was decent, but I don't find myself reaching for it often.
Great foundation!! It was on sale at Ulta for $10.99 (regularly priced at $12.99) and I used a $3.50 coupon towards a $10 purchase so I got it for a little over $7. This is a nice medium coverage foundation, a second application provides full coverage. It's easy to apply, not sticky and sets very nicely - it does oxidize so I recommend going a shade lighter. I originally bought #855 Soft Honey and it was perfect going on but 30 min later it was much darker. I tried #845 Warm Beige and it's almost perfect but a little light. I mixed the two and got a perfect match with a flawless finish!! I'll probably be able to use #845 during winter when my summer color goes away. I'm pretty impressed with the formula, its about as good as higher end foundations for a fraction of the price!! The only thing I didn't like is the cap isn't tight and I've dropped the bottle a couple times (it's glass) and I'm lucky it hasn't broken. Other than that, I really love it!! I recommend applying with the Signa F80 or Real Techniques expert face brush. Try it out!!
I have tried this foundation and I am not as impressed as other MUA'ers. I notice transfer of makeup using this product more than when I use my HG foundation (Revlon ColorStay for Combination Skin in Toast) and I was really hoping this would be a great alternative for days I didn't want to deal with the messy application of the ColorStay. I love the pump style but when I put the cap back on it gets messy. I apply a translucent powder on top of the makeup on my face to set it but I still find transfer on my phone and paperwork. It's not as blendable when I contour and I am not sure I will repurchase.
