Wow! I love this stuff and heres why!
Coverage: Medium but buildable to full coverage with out looking cakey!
Staying power: This stuff last so long! And it helps all my other makeup last longer ( blush contour highlight )
Packaging: Nice glass bottle with a pump! Thank god!
I apply this with a Elf powder brush (which works alot better then a sygma F80) and tada flawless skin :)
P.S mine didnt oxidize.
Ive waited a whole 2 months to write a review on this particular product. As a makeup critic, I give this product thumbs up! Good coverage, LONG lasting power! It truly does look like the first time when you applied it. Non-oily, it has a satin finish for combination skin. There is absolutely NO bad review for this foundation. HOWEVER, ever since I've been on my new regimen (acne.org) my skin has switched to dry-flaky skin. And unfortunately, this product was a NO NO! For me. :[ it exaggerates the flakes, patchiness and dryness of the skin. So I highly recommend this for combination to oily skin.. Just not for dry. I hope I helped! -xoxo<3
AMAZINGGG! Even for my dry, yellow toned, hard to match, tan skin I found the perfect match! That itself won me over but it makes my skin look FLAWLESS! Like air brushed flawless, it doesn't dry my very very dry skin out, and I don't have to use anything to apply it, just my fingers. It feels a tinyyy bit heavy (but you can't have it all) and the coverage is worth it, because it covers everythinggg! It doesn't wear off OR transfer, very important. This would be my HG but unfortunately I'm not willing to spend $10+ dollars on foundation every time it runs out, but if you are then this is magic!
So far I like this product. Very easy to blend and seems to last most of the day.
Not for me. Dried out my skin and I could definitely feel it on my face. Also pretty cakey.
I really, really liked this product. I have extremely oily skin so I knew that even if this went on matte (which it did, and it dries fast so make sure you blend well!) it wouldn't take long for me to get oily through it. It stayed matte a couple of hours before my oil began to come through. The coverage is fantastic, it does double as a concealer for me. My only complaint about the foundation and why I think it deserves a 3 is due to what other reviewers have already mentioned...it oxidizes on the skin. It goes a shade darker a few hours after application. I am in the lightest shade 805 ivory and when I first applied it matches my skin fairly close, but it isn't a perfect match. I can top it off with a lighter powder to make it appear close. But after oxidizing...it is obviously not a match for me. If they came out with some lighter shades that would be perfect and then it may be my HG foundation.
WARNING: This product oxidizes quite a bit and so when color matching yourself in the store, find the color that matches you and get a shade lighter.
I was able to swatch this in store with the shade that I had matched to my skin (in the bottle and was the second lightest shade) and it looked perfect when first applied, then I continued browsing only to look down and see that the swatch was completely noticeable and darker than my own skin. And so I went back to the aisle and picked up the lightest shade which now matches me once it has oxidized.
I find this foundation to be a very nice every day foundation that I don't feel guilty using all the time about as compared to my higher end foundations that I've spent a lot of money on (ie. MUFE HD foundation). It gives me medium coverage and I think it's very build able and I like that. I apply it with my blending sponge or my buffing brush and I'm pretty happy with it.
I reviewed this before I bought my MAC Studio Sculpt, which is my HG now, and I was going to continue using it before I got my MAC one. DO NOT USE THIS IF YOU HAVE ANY DRY PLACES AT ALL. It goes on patchy on certain places, you cannot build it up. It oxidizes SO BAD. I had the lightest shade and it still was too dark/orange. If you hate this foundation and the formula of it, you need to check out MAC's Studio Sculpt! The pump was the only good thing about this, however my cap was poorly made and it wouldn't clasp onto the bottle, so it could have been potentially messy. I could see this working for extremely oily people, but if you have a little dryness around your nose like me, PLEASE do not waste your money/time on it! Please don't! Also, I applied this with the Expert Face Brush from Real Techniques. It did good when there were no dry places. But if you have any dry places at all, it will cling to them so bad! Beware!
I have tried many foundations and i absolutely love this foundation! It provies the coverage that i need without making it super obvious that i had foundation it. It look natural and flawless. Will definitely repurchase!
Wow I really like this foundation! It has good coverage and I love how light it feels on the skin. I also love the pump. I've been using this for a couple of weeks and although it's great, it has been breaking me out. :(
