On my 3th bottle. Finally settled and happy with my face! Lasts well. No streaks, no shine, no pores. Excellent colour match for fair skin.

Those who have dry-skin, BEWARE. This product is amazing, gives very good coverage, indeed lasts all day, and has excellent packaging; the only downside is that this ideally fits those with oily skin; at least, that's what I've concluded. It made my dry areas on my face more noticeable and overall, did not look natural on me. I use this more-so as just a concealer now since the places I do tend to conceal are the more oily spots on my face, but not so much as a foundation. Lovely product, just not for my skin-type.

I usually have bad luck with drugstore products, but this one is amazing. It has great overall coverage, lasts all day, and plus it has sunscreen. It doesn't usually get too cakey, but it can if you have dry skin. The pump applicator is very convenient, and for the price, I love it. The lightest colour fits my skin perfectly.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this beloved foundation yet. I've been using it for 3 months and it has made HG status. I'm shocked a drugstore foundation that costs only $12.99 has beat out all of my high end favourites (e.g. Chanel vitalumiere aqua $50 and YSL teint touche eclat $65). That just doesn't make sense! It glides on and blends effortlessly with the consistency of a foundation primer. My color match was spot on. It has great coverage (med-high) but does not look cakey or fake on the skin, in fact, it looks just like skin. Just to top off how amazing this foundation is, it is very long wearing. The packaging is nice for having a pump but if I were to try to name a con, the cap/lid does not shut securely. Thank you too all of you who recommended it!

We'll, here's another foundation I love! Great coverage, long lasting, easy to apply (I always use a brush - currently using the small stipple brush from e.l.f.), not too expensive. I've not had any problems with it oxidizing like others have mentioned and I always moisturizer before applying foundation, so no dry patches either. This one works well for me!

I bought this in Ivory on recommendation from a friend. I loved it at first but after using it for a while it has its flaws. I still found it to be a great product overall, as I can't bring myself to splurge for expensive foundation.

I love the coverage, it's pretty pigmented compared to the BB cream I was using before this. It looks natural when well blended (using a round foundation brush or fingers when I'm really lazy) It's also nice to keep building and adding more.
With powder over I haven't had any issues with it not staying on.

I used this product throughout winter and if my face was dry it really showed and looked cakey. I would have to wipe it off and re-moisturize certain areas. I had to keep using scrubs, but it was also a really dry winter in general, so not entirely the fault of the makeup.

I also found it to oxidize and get a little bit orangey at times, especially where there is more in one place. I noticed this more on the blob on the back of my hand than on my actual face, so it wasn't a huge issue.

As for the 3in1 aspect, I never use primer as it tends to break me out (I just moisturize) so I can't really speak to that, but I have used it as a concealer for under the eyes and it works pretty well. I have dark circles so I tend to layer it with another concealer too.

This stuff is my new favourite foundation! I got it in ivory and it's almost an exact match to my skin. I like that it has a pump that you can lock so that it won't get all over your makeup bag, which is handy because the clear plastic cap over it doesn't stay on well. The product goes on smooth and is not heavy on the skin, I would say it's between a light and medium coverage but easily buildable without looking too cakey. It also has a matte finish which I like, and lasts through the whole day for me without becoming at all oily. This stuff is really fast drying and you should note that if you have dry skin it will make it look more obvious. Just make sure you exfoliate and moisturizer and you should be fine.

I have combination skin where I have flaky skin (because I don't drink enough water) but gets really oily throughout the day. For dry skin people who want to try this foundation, be sure to scrub your face and apply a heavy duty facial cream before applying this foundation.

I applied this foundation on using my fingers first, but it ended up looking so cakey and it just accentuated the flakes on my face. It's hard to blend this quick-drying foundation if you have rough, flakey skin. However, the cakiness can be minimized by using a beauty blender or maybe even just a damp cosmetic sponge wedge. When I used a beauty blender, I was able to put 2 thin layers without looking cakey. The flakiness of my skin looked minimal.

The wear time was good. I wore powder over the foundation but I only got really oily after 8 hours.

I got the shade 855 Soft Honey and I think it's an ok match for NC37 - NC40. I didn't notice any drastic change in color throughout the day. However, I think it oxidized and got a little bit darker, but not that noticeable unless I really study my face.

I don't recommend this product for dry flaky skin.

I purchased the lightest color (ivory) and when I put it on, it oxidized heavily and turned very red-orange. I had to return it.

Right away it makes the dry patches on my cheeks visible, less so with primer but the dryness look really obvious by the end of the day.

It smells faintly of paint, has a light to medium coverage imo, definitely does not cover as well as the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Creme Foundation.

Packaging-wise, I don't think the cap is very secure. It's great that it has a pump but whenever I use it, there is always some semi-solidified foundation that gets pushed out before you see the useable liquid.

The finish it gives is really nice though, not dewy, and I feel like you could do without a powder because there is no stickiness.

I think it'll work better for those with oily skin.
