It took me a bit of time before I grew to like this foundation. It is very thin and very light coverage (but buildable) and I needed concealer and powder to really get the look I wanted everyday. I don't think it lasts very long its own either. I did like the way it made my skin look, the finish, and my skin did look good when I took it off. The packaging is definitely a plus as well.
I wear this in W4, and it became my favorite foundation. It gives you a very luminous glow, and decent coverage. I use my Sigma F80, and looks great.
-No mess pump style bottle
-Color is true to skin tone (at least for me)
-Does not look heavy or cakey on skin
-Lasts most of the day
-Not really a full coverage foundation
Overall, this is a great drugstore foundation and I would recommend it!
Sad to say this looked like a mask on me.
This foundation goes on smoothly and the finish is dewey and luminous like the name implies.
I did not wear this long enough to know the lasting power but I did wear it long enough to know it is not for me.
I felt it looked heavy and unnatural. I got the shade W6 and W7 and both colors were wrong for my skin tone.
The packaging is the only thing I liked about it.
I'm nc40 and I'm w5 in this foundation. In regular true match. I'm w6 tho. It's so nice and glowy on u skin! Since I have combination skin I do have to blot but its fine. Nothing new for me. I love this for a fresh look. Not full coverage but definitely build-able.
This product is not a true match like it states. I have a warm skin tone and bought the W1-2 and it is too light but the next one up was too dark. Living in Florida my tone doesn't change too much throughout the year. I would have to buy two of them and mix them daily to get the correct color but this one is close enough. I normally wear this and then put a dark tinted moisturizer or powder over it and it works fine. However this product is wonderful. It is light weight so that I don't feel like it is melting off my face. It has not proved to be a problem with my oily skin either. I normally put a bit of the ELF tone correcting powder over it and I have NO problem throughout the day. Wear last me at least 4 hours. The container is cute and easy for transport. It pumps out a bit too much for me but the pump is very versatile and allows you to get different amounts of product depending on how much you press down which is a really good quality for me. For the girls who wear light makeup this could last you at least 4 months of daily use.
I have super dry skin. It's so dry that its a constant struggle to find foundations that don't settle into patches and pores. This foundation is friggin beautiful. I have an oily t zone but I use mac blot powder on my nose and I'm good to go. I use the shade W1. This is light and creamy. It blends like an absolute dream. I actually have that doll skin effect. This is my new HG foundation. BUT if you have hard to control oil just stay clear of this product. My t zone is controllable, but I don't get oily anywhere else but my nose.
My skin has HORRRRRRIBLE breakouts happening. Turns out this is the problem. While it looks good it is causing some teenage boy madness. Sighs.
I have mostly dry skin with a bit of oiliness on my forehead. While using this foundation, I noticed my skin looked oily after only a couple of hours, even in places where my skin is very dry. After three hours the feeling of the foundation on my skin was unbearable. I noticed that with or without a primer (I used several types), the foundation settles into fine lines, and it becomes patchy. It's an incredible disappointment because the foundation looked and felt great immediately after application. I used my Real Techniques buffing brush to apply it, which I preferred, and I used a Beauty Blender -- both gave a similar result, and my skin looked glowy (NOT shimmery), healthy, and smooth.
This is an extremely light foundation but also very buildable. I found it covered any redness pretty easily, but for blemishes and the like I needed more coverage. If this somehow doesn't make your skin feel like an oil slick, I imagine it would feel like nothing as it's so light.
I had the color nude beige, W1-2 (I think), and while it looked too light in the bottle, the color was a perfect match for my skin. I like the packaging -- it looks nicer/more expensive than it is.
I returned this product to the store. I would not even consider repurchasing.
not bad ......very even ....not bad at all
I was using this foundation for maybe about a month. I'm a matte girl, but wanted to try something different. I wanted more of a "fresh" look. Coverage isn't all that great. Within 5 minutes, no joke, I'm pretty oily & it looks like I've been wearing my face makeup for like 2 days. I'm usually very pleased with L'Oreal products, I have a lot of favorites, but not this foundation :/ continued >>
