I actually really like this. I tried it when it first came out a few years ago and didn't like it then (too shiny and overwhelming floral scent) but I suspect they reformulated it because I don't have those issues with it now. My skin is dry and I need to cover redness. This works really well. I like how easily it spreads (much easier than Colorstay or Revlon Nearly Naked). Con: I wouldn't say it's one of those foundations that sort of melts in to your skin so I have to be careful to blend it well at first. But after that it looks great. It's not cakey and it doesn't settle into fine lines. The color selection also leaves a lot to be desired, I use the lightest shade and it's almost too light, but the next one up is too dark.
I don't think this would work for oily skin (I do set it with a powder), or for people who really need to cover a lot. But this is a good, inexpensive option for someone wanting a natural looking, easy to use foundation. Really great for the price.
It's way too 'wet' and leaves my skin way too oily. gave it to my mom who has dry skin and she likes it. neither of us would buy it again. not enough coverage plus it oxidizes really bad
I only used it once & never again , horrible if you have oily skin .
I have dry sensitive skin, and I love the way this goes on. It's my very favorite drugstore foundation. Normally I have a really hard time finding foundation that doesn't look cakey or sit in my wrinkles or highlight flakey skin. This is awesome.
Makes your skin oily, dewy, and gross. It just doesn't look nice at all. Don't waste your money on this if your skin gets oily throughout the day naturally because this will make it so much worse.
Pros: SPF 18 Smells great Smoothly Applied Light to medium coverage Inexpensive Cons: Oxidizes Lasts 1-2 hours Very oily No pump application
I just rebought this product, in a diffrent shade but sill the same. I love it. Im only in my teens so i dont need tons of make and this product goves just the right amount of coverage without being cakey.
I own this foundation and the only thing it is good for in my foundation collection is to mix in with my other Rimmel foundation to make that one a little lighter and runnier to fit my skin tone and to spread easier I guess. By itself, besides it being too light for my skin (my fault) it had a small amount of coverage for me, and it was too dewy for someone with extremely oily skin..I'm talkin shiny within 30 minutes of applying any foundation!
I love this foundation. It looks amazing and gives me so much more confidence. I will keep buying it.
I went to another product to try some more natural products when it ran out but came back, there's just nothing else that looks so flawless and gives the same level of full coverage. It also lasts pretty much all day, and if it is hot weather you can easily blot away any oily patches without ruining your look.
I use the foundation, concealer and the powder to set the look (but not much of it, just a light press on shiny parts)
Also I used to use two layers of the foundation to really create a perfect coverage, and sometimes that would become very oily or rub off, so it is best to not use much more than a 5 cent piece size of the foundation, then fix any problem areas with concealer and tilt your head back showing the shiny spots in the light and cover these with a few dabs of the powder to set it.
The only issue I have with it is you need to NEED to make sure that you wash it all off at the end of the day, because it doesn't let your skin breathe very well and can cause some breakouts. I find it suitable for me because I don't wear makeup everyday at home or if I go to the supermarket I will just wear some light makeup such as Nude by nature products. And I only use this for when I dress up and go out for lunch, dinner, dates, uni or whatever.
I bought this foundation because I heard such good reviews about it. I have combination/oily/acne prone skin so finding a good foundation is very hard for me. This one was BAD. It dries up on your skin and you can tell your wearing makeup. The consistency is so runny and it feels gross on your skin.
