First off, I really wanted this product to work for me. ):
I loved this product so much! It had good coverage and didn't feel too heavy (of course you could feel that you were wearing makeup)!
The ONLY REASON I threw it away was because it broke me out! I bought the oil-free for combination to oily skin, and after a day of wear, I found little bumps all over my face. Urgh, I was so mad because I loved the product so much.
Because of the breaking out, I'm only giving this four lippies, but if it didn't break me out, I would give it five and continue to wear this stuff forever.
this foundation is pretty good. i've been using it for about eight months and the coverage is buildable and it doesn't break me out. but it does stick to dry patches. it took me a few tries to figure out what shade i am, and the lo and behold, i try to go back and buy it (i wear 220, i forget the name) and the shade i usually wear was really, really light and NOT at all like the one i previously bought. so their shades are a little bit inconsistent.
I love this foundation but I have to be careful when I apply it. Because I have dry/normal skin, if I dont moisturize right before I apply this, it can get very cakey. I also have to use a beauty blender to apply because brushes make it look cakey on my skin. I typically use a beauty blender anyway, so it's not a huge issue. I love the colors for pale skin as well because it can be hard to find light enough shades at the drugstore .
In general a good product. Has really good coverage and looks smooth and nice. Doesn't help with my oily skin at all but I was happy when I first put it on. But then it broke me out. I thought maybe I was just imagining it and continued to use it for a week, I continued to break out badly. I have tried to use this product sporadically to see if it really did break me out and I have found that yes, it definitely does. If it doesn't break you out then its a pretty good product besides for the fact that it does not control oil.
I bought 24hrs Colorstay 220 Natural Beige. I have oily and acne prone skin and this product really emphisized all of my imperfections. My face got really oily within 2 hours after applying.
Cons- Very messy product, NOT for oily skin, does NOT last 24 hours, although I purchased 220 Natural Beige the foundation came out alot lighter
Pros-Cheap about $8-$12, good for people who prefer light coverage, the foundation is not thick, the foundation does not smell nasty or strong.
I absoulutly love this product and will deffinetley buy this item again the only con about this is it doesnt have a pump with it, but some highlitghted pro's are matte , lasts for about 7 hours with no re touch, huge shade range , inexpensive. If you're someone who is looking for a full coverage matte and long lasting foundation i would deffinetley recommend this.
This foundation is great for the right person. If youre looking for complete coverage and super staying power, this is for you. It covers acne amazingly and doesn't transfer. Not everyone needs this much coverage or staying power, so it may seem a little intense. You can definitely thin it out if you need to. I think this is the best drugstore foundation on the market right now.
So this is basically my HG foundation. Love this! I love how you can buy foundation for different skin types, I buy the oily/combination skin formula. I have very oily skin that is very acne prone. This works wonders! It does not break me out and it does not make my skin oily. I use this foundation and a touch of powder throughout the day and my skin looks lovely! This foundation is full coverage, and makes my skin look flawless without looking like it's caked on. I always have problems finding foundations that will not make my skin look orange because I am so fair. Well I buy this in light, and it has NEVER made my skin look orange or darker than it is. The skin of neck and face merge wonderfully together. This looks completely flawless and natural!!
This is the first foundation that I have tried in a long time, I have been using B.B creams for so long and I thought I would never switch to foundation. I finally gave in to try this because it seems that everyone Ioves it. I have combination oily skin so I got that version. The color I got was warm golden and I really like it. It blends in beautifully and I use it with a brush and a sponge and the finish and coverage is nice. It doesn't
Dry as fast or as matte as people have said it would, but maybe it's because I haven't used it with my fingers. The coverage is nice (medium) and it stays on nicely and evenly. I also like the way this smells after its been blended out on my skin. Over all its a nice foundation, I just wish the packaging would be better.
Fantastic product. Fantastic coverage on my acne scarred oily skin. I blend it with a foundation brush. I use poweder over it an it lasts all day. My blusher and bronzer lasts ages on top of it. I would absoloutley recommend trying this, I wish I'd tried it sooner.
Only negatives are the smell, and that it has no pump, but that doesn't bother me enough to not use it. The positives outweigh the negatives by a mile!
