I have acne-prone combination skin with a yellow undertone. my skin has some dry patches and for me this foundation did not cling to it at all! Lovely foundation with a really liquid texture. Dries matte but it doesn't look flat.
It really does last for me, about 10 hours. Some slight fading but not much. It has a light to medium coverage and it can be built up for higher coverage. Covers redness and uneven skin tone very well and my face did look brighter. Does not sink into pores!
I really love the fact that it actually dries and sets. I used shiseido perfect foundation brush to stipple it on my skin and a little does go a long way!
Hey guys, Go check out my blog where i also write more reviews!
The idea behind this foundation if you don't already know is that it has 3 colours for different reasons!
Yellow - To conceal dark circles
Mauve - To help Dull complexions
Green - To correct any redness that the skin may have
I felt that it gave coverage underneath the eyes for the dark circles and it does brighten up your face and i have recently been suffered from redness and it does help cover the redness
It has a gel like texture and can be applied with any method really such as stippling, damp cosmetic sponge, foundation brush and fingers! I feel that it blends well with any method!
I would say that it is mid coverage although its not stated on the bottle but it is also very build-able to a high coverage, i think its very lightweight and doesn't feel cakey i find it very hydrating and it does clump around my dry patches on my face.
It does last for a reasonable amount of time for me it lasts about 10 hours and then begins to wear off

I had high hopes for this foundation as its supposed to be very good, but I purchased it and I am not a fan! I got shade 52 which is the second lightest because I am pale and it was very orange which I hate. Also, the coverage was awful, and it does not do what it says its supposed to! For naturally quite tanned people with flawless skin this would be really good but not for me
For a foundation on a budget, this is a great contender against up-stream brands. It's light consistency gives surprisingly medium coverage that conceals red areas, pigmentation from old spots and localised acne with ease, and without cakeyness. It doesn't settle in open pores and leaves a matte - yet not lifeless- finish, so wearing powder to set or blot becomes optional, if not unnecessary. Yes, this product does have a slight 'rose' smell to it, but considering this, my very sensitive - and often reactive skin - has not been affected when I use this every day (this has not caused me any redening, rashes or spots). I have used this foundation on dry (non-moistured and cold-weather parched) skin, and was really surprised how well it performed. Considering other reviewers' experiencing it clinging to dry areas, I didn't experience any patching or gathering - this really surprised me as the texture is quite matte/dry, so I put it down to my application: lightly stippled on with a sponge wedge only on areas needed.
The colour range is very yellow-based, and with my pink-undertones, this helps to tone down redness without looking like 'obvious' make-up. I use shade 52, which suits my fair skin with pink and peachy undertones. The pump bottle is heavy glass, but I think this gives the product an 'expensive' feel. Overall (and after trying and testing many) I think this foundation is certainly worth a try for those who are looking for more adjustable coverage - mixed in with an illuminating moisturiser or worked on-top of a dewy primer, this is simply divine, and hides a multitude of sins.
I think this is an absolutely wonderful foundation. I apply this with a beauty blender (or something similar), which I find gives the best finish. It blends like a dream, looks very natural and covers a lot of sins, I would say the high end of medium coverage. It starts to look unnatural if you start building it up to achieve absolute full coverage though (i.e. EL Double Wear coverage), so use a concealer instead. One thing I really don't like is the fragrance, it's like a flowery alcohol-y smell. Maybe it's just my bottle, or maybe it isn't :\ Also, the colours run quite orange. I'm already very yellow toned, and even on me the undertone of this foundation is really too strong. I would repurchase, if not for the smell and the tone of this. What a shame :(
Hmm, so-so product. I still have it kicking around in my stash but I never reach for it. For some reason I'm unwilling to part with it though!
I love the shade selection - lots of pale/yellow-toned ideal for NC15 (my ideal match is usually 'light vanilla' or 'vanilla' in Bourjois) skin however I don't find it has great coverage although the texture is very pleasant and natural feeling.
I guess it would be ok if you have near-perfect skin but for people who need more coverage, this won't be enough.
I wanted to like this so much because of the colour match and the low price. I got this for 9 uk pounds... About 17 US dollars i guess. the colour beige matches NC30 quite well. It goes on very light and ashy but turns a yellow beige within half an hour and seems to look good as you're walking out the door to go out. However, I didnt like this even though I have oily prone skin because it made my skin way more oily than usual towards the end of the day. I have been doing all my usual cleansing routines and haven't changed anything else. I used this three days during the one week and two days after the third day have massive bumpy red irritated breakout!! And my skin now looks horrible... I'm not even on that time of the month or anything either so it's not that. Also was not happy that I looked like I was wearing a tinted foundation by the fourth hour if wearing. It corrected colours but coverage is very poor after about 3 hours. Not happy this is definitely not "123 perfect" it's 123 days breakout!!
I read mixed reviews about this product and wasn't sure whether to get it or not. I usually wear Estee Lauder Double wear and I love it but I just wanted something cheaper. I bought this as it was on offer and had correcting pigments in it and I have acne scars that I have to cover. The foundation is runny and spreading it with my fingers was a little messy but the savior is the brush I use. I bought a dense brush which I couldn't get on with until I thought of using it with this foundation. They're a match made in heaven! I use a pump straight onto the brush and dot it around before buffing it in. I do have to blend well but the correcting pigments do work and I have a flawless finish. I have to use powder because I have combination skin but I find I tend to need less with this foundation.
this foundation is wonderful the coverage is light to medium the most amazing thing for me in this foundation that is set without powder this's nice look so natural didn't break me out for me it gave me the flawless natural look when I applied with my fingers the only con is the packaging it's not good like the healthy mix one the pump is not good at all however the foundation is pretty nice
Really not impressed at all with this foundation. I decided to buy it after reading several positive reviews on it and after hearing that my previous foundation was by a brand that tested on animals (Max Factor). When I applied it, my face came up all blotchy, even once I'd primed my face. Also, it wore away really quickly. However, it did make my face feel really smooth after application. My face is naturally quite pinky in some areas and I have pretty bad dark circles; the coloured pigments didn't seem to neutralize these areas either :( Overall, really disappointed with this product, and considering it's price (£10.99) I thought it would of been better!
