I have re-purchased this 3 times. It is just perfect for my skin. I build the coverage (lots of red scars etc), and it does not cake at all. BTW I am able to get full coverage from this, so it can be done :o) It really gives a beautiful finish, but the way it wears is what I love. I have very, very oily skin, so I blot all day long, and this foundation doesn't break up the way others do. It literally looks as good at the end of 12 hours as it does when I first put it on. Also, I have very sensitive, acne prone skin and I've had no reaction to it, which for me is great! HTH someone :o)
I have never dreamed of spending this kind of money on any product like this; however, I have not experienced such a "natural" look, and still feel that I have a good foundation on. It's a lot of dough, but I'm hooked!
I just want to say that I really like this foundation! Its a lightweight, oil-free gel-based foundation that comes in a little jar. It is weightless and doesn't appear visible on the skin and covers sheerly. I would say the finish is dewy.Its long lasting and best of all, does not feel like you are wearing any foundation at all. I would say, however, that it does seem to wear off during the day on any oily areas. Its definitely a makeup that works best on dryer skins and one "good skin days."
Love it! My favorite foundation ever, dewy but doesn't slip all over, feels creamy but it's oil free. I find the coverage a bit sheer, but it is quite buildable.
Chantecaille's Future Skin is a gel foundation that provides medium coverage and a dewy finish. This foundation looks very natural and lovely on me for the first few hours after application. After that, however, it turned my combination skin into an oil pit. The worst part is that blotting doesn't seem to help much, and by the end of the day, I look terrible when I wear this foundation. I don't think my skin has been this shiny since I was a teenager! FS is $55, but it looks like it would last a long time. I don't know how long though, because mine is going back to NM. Bottom line: Not a good foundation for oily skin, and you are taking a risk if you have combination skin.
I was at a local counter for eyebrow shaping.. and I asked her about this particular foundation.. took one look at moi, and precribed Future Skin in a shade called camomile. She gave moi a generous sample to try it out first.. which is very kind of her.. Although I must say this looks pretty creamy and thick.. but after applying the foundation it totally matches my skintone!!!.. or should I say it blended??.. well anyway.. it can last moi for almost a full day.. withoout feeling cakey and even after touch up, I dun feel moi face pilling up with makeup and powder.. *thumbs up*
My holy grail of foundations. I have very dry skin, and this feels wonderfully light. Doesn't accent my dry patches. And the shade Cream is the perfect match for me-- a tiny pinkish undetone. The texture is airy and smooth, and the finish is satiny. Not exactly matte. Really gives my skin a glow. I love it.
When I felt the consistency of this product I wanted to love it--it felt almost like whipped pudding and spread very well on my face. However, it didn't live up to its oil-controlling claims (in fact it made me greasy) and the coverage seemed to break up/slide on oily areas like my nose and chin. The worst part was that it totally broke me out. It has some comodogenic ingredients (like algae extract) so be careful if you are acne-prone. However, if you are not oily or sensitive and are looking for a medium coverage foundation this may be worth checking out.
I have very dry skin and although this isn't a particularly moisturizing foundation, it doesn't settle into my flaky patches like some other foundations I've tried. Color wise, it has two color schemes, a yellow based and pink based. I found this line to be a really good skin match for asians. It provides a sheer to medium coverage that layers beautifully, and has a gel-like consistency. My holy grail...will never go to another brand again.
This is a great gel foundation that works beautifully on gals with combo skin who just need a little coverage - not a lot. It gives the face a nice "unmade-up" finish that I've yet to be able to replicate with other products. The best part of all - a little goes a long way.
