this product is amazing! i use it in bronze and it blends with my skin perfect!
i use loose powder to set it, however my face still gets greasy.
it's $26CAN and i find it well worth it! it contains an SPF of 11 which is good compared to no SPF at all. it even comes with directions on how to use it and the tube itself i find, is user friendly. i was using cover fx, but i found it too heavy and cakey not to mention how oily it made my face. this does make my already oily face, greasy. i mostly use it to cover my under eye circles and it does cake and crease into my fine lines...
it doesnt completely 100% hide my darkness but it gets the job done!

i stop using this for about a year and came back to it. i dont know what i ever saw in this. it doesnt cover my under eye darkness like i said it did above, my cover fx does a way better job. this makes my darkness look gray and worse. terrible for my already oily skin. i wouldnt buy it again. it does help even out and make my cover fx go on and look better.. on it's own, my under eye darkness turns out grey..

Fabulous and the answer to most of my prayers! I was thrilled when I found this, and still am.
I bought the shade Opal, on introductory sale for $17.99 and use it on my sun spots, applied with a foundation brush. It goes on evenly, though must be applied quickly because it is a dry formulation. That being said, I have dry skin and have not had any problems with wear or application and have worn it through the winter. You must use a rich moisturizer and have smooth skin to use this foundation. On occasion I will get dry patches on my cheeks and I cannot use this formulation.

Opal is a very good match for me, and would be perfect with a smidge more yellow! The next shade down is a darker nude that could be mixed to achieve the correct result.
I have stubborn sun spots, freckles and under eye circles and this takes them all away instantly. While I do have the Dermablend Concealer as well, most days I just use the foundation to perform all functions and it does the job just as well. This is an amazing foundation! The concealer is too dry for under my eyes and I can only use is for my nose and chin area.
I have only one complaint (aside from lack of shades) and that's the tube. Because it's opaque I don't know how much is left, though I wager it's a lot. It doesn't let a lot go when I squeeze, just what I need.

I will definitely buy this again. I am curious to know how this measures up against Cover FX. If you can find (or mix) your shade, this is a winner!

I don't wear it over my whole face because the colour isn't perfect, so I wear it over my problem areas and then my HG foundation over the rest and this system is working fine. The finish is very matte, so be prepared for that. I don't love a matte finish, so that's why I use this only on my problem areas.

I may try the cream formulation next, in hopes that it is more moisturizing and gives a more luminous finish. I won't repurchase this, simply because I don't like matte, but it is a winner if you do!

This product is amazing! :D I am in my teenage years so like most teens my age i have acne-prone skin, and plus i have uneven colored skin and can look really red according to how hot or cold it is. So I thought I would buy this product since it says that it covers any red in your skin ton you might have, which it totally does! also i was shocked at how little you have to use and i have to disagree with some people who rated this product, i DO NOT think find this foundation is "thick" at all! it might kinda look some what thick when it comes out (there for just use a little tiny amount) and it just spreads like no other foundation i have ever used! it totally covers everything you might want to cover! I love, love love it!
the only thing is how much it costs, since I am use to buying foundations that only cost around $11.00, so the expense of this is a little pricey for me, but i think its going to last a long time so its so worth it! :)

i have keratosis pilaris on my arms and some on my back and struggled with it eversince i gave birth to my 1st baby. i've used mac liquid foundation which is great on my face when i apply make-up but not enough coverage for my arms. i finally bought this product and i'm very happy with it. it's quite a miracle! staying power is good especially if you apply the loose powder. i will definitely purchase it again.

Holy Grail! I am a foundation junkie...I've tried literally every (department store) foundation out there. I have a lot of hyperpigmenation from my picking my skin. I know... horrible habit! Anyone I'm always on the search for a foundation with heavy coverage that will not look like a mask ie Estee Lauder Double Wear. There's no other foundation out there quite like this. It's highly pigmented so you don't have to use that much. Thank god. I use to pile on so much foundation that it would rub off on my shirt or jacket. Ewww.
Holy grail. Flawless and naturally looking. It doesn't even look like I'm wearing foundation. I do need to touch up with (mac blot) powder in the afternoon b/c I get a lil greasy. Color selection blows..only four to choose from. I wear the lightest one opal which is little too dark so I blend blend blend. I will buy again and again.

While it does make you skin look poreless and flawless, it really leaves it very shiny and greasy. And while the coverage does last all day, anything that touches your face will be left with a smear of foundation on it. I MUCH prefer Revlon's Colorstay. Even the matching Vichy/ Dermablend powder without the foundation, has made me uber oily. Not for me.

Yuck. While the coverage and lasting power is good, this foundation made me incredibly greasy. With any foundation, I usually get a little shiny by lunchtime- with this stuff, I'm reflective within 30 minutes. I had to blot every hour and still the oil came through. This one is going back!! I also had a minor breakout, although I can't be sure this is the culprit. It just felt gross on. Surprisingly, Avon's Perfect Wear foundation does the job much better- good coverage, no oilies, and no irritation.

I bought this product based soley on the comments from this web-site. I usually find them to be very in line with the way that I feel about products. However, this is not the case with this product. I ordered this from the U.K., because that is the only place that I could find it. I payed way to much for it with the exchange rate and the additional shipping cost. I would not have minded paying more for it if I would have liked it. Oh, boy was I dissappointed. I tried to like it, I thought maybe I was doing something wrong so I wore it a couple of times. Each time was just as bad. I live in the south so it has been hot here, 100 degrees for the last two weeks. I feel as though this product just melts off my face. It is interesting the way it multiplies on contact. It is a thick foundation, but does not give the appearance of being so. On my skin it left tiny little dots, I guess that was from settling in my pores. I tried application with fingertips and with a sponge. Blending was not the problem. I tried it over a light moisterizer and I tried it plain. It is a thick foundation and it works better with a little moisture. I really hated to mess up this products near perfect reviews but I thought that someone else could possibly benefit from it.
