I wanted to love this product so bad that I almost convinced myself that I did. Truly, the actual product ,for the most part, is great. Package quality is fantastic, consistency is lovely, and the thought of having an all in one product is really nice. However, this product has one major downfall, that in which being the colour. I purchased the lightest shade, Ivory. It applied nicely and looked great and I made my way to class. Halfway through the day, I looked in the mirror and was absolutely horrified to see that the foundation had dried at least 2-3 shades darker than what it had applied. To some people, this may not be a huge problem, but to a pale girl, it is! This is a major downfall to this product. If the company adjusted this product so that the formula would dry as it applied, I would most certainly repurchase it because other than the colour, it was very nice. But what is a good foundation without proper colour, correct?
This is currently my favorite foundation! It lasts all day for me, even with my oily skin. I also think the color selection is very good, and the shade classic tan matches me PERFECTLY. I was skeptical with buying the shade that matched me because I assumed that it would oxidize and become too dark/orange for me, but it didn't! I would also like to mention that I use a primer and setting powder/spray with this foundation because my face is very oily. That being said, I don't know how this foundation works on it's own. But after using this foundation with my other products, I find that I only have to touch up once throughout the day, and I stayed matte for hours! This foundation doesn't feel heavy on the skin at all, and sometimes I forget I even put makeup on while wearing it. The formula is not too runny either; it's the perfect consistency and the coverage is very buildable! I love that this foundation comes with a pump, but sometimes i find that product will leak out of it. This problem is easily fixed by just twisting the pump to lock it! Overall I love this foundation, I think it's perfect for me and I will definitely be repurchasing!
love this foundation! Does not cake up and looks smooth on my face. Some drugstore brands don't have my skin tone right but this foundation is perfect!
I wanted to like this foundation because who wouldn't want a great 3-in-1 foundation at a drugstore price. I found the colors close to my skin tone a little too peachy/pink. I ended up purchasing the color that I usually wear in Cover Girl (classic ivory). It was slightly too peach when I put it on, but it would have been ok if the foundation didn't oxidize throughout the day - unfortunately it did oxidize and my face looked orange-ish.
I did not care for the finish either. It seemed to make my pores look larger, and the matte finish was too harsh which made my complexion look dull. Also, I didn't find this to be a long wearing foundation. I prefer Revlon's Colorstay to this foundation (it lasts longer and has more natural skin tones).
I heard a lot of good things about this foundation so I decided to give it a shot, but I wasn't impressed with it. A bit about my skin: I have combination skin that leans toward the dryer side (dry winters don't help!). It applies nicely but it settles into my face in a very unappealing way. It really emphasizes my pores and makes me look like I've put on a lot more foundation than I have. It also feels very heavy. I'll keep using it because it's definitely not the worst foundation I've tried, but I wouldn't spend money on it again.
I bought this foundation because I had run out of my fave (Chanel VA) and needed something to hold me over. I had heard so many raves on YT too. The texture is slightly thick, yet feels light weight on the skin. It feels dry to me (if that's possible for a liquid). It can be a little difficult to spread, but it all seems to work out pretty well. I did find that I could layer this as long as I did it in thin layers rather than trying to use one thick layer all at once. The pump is nice as I could pump out just what I need without it being wonky. The color slightly oxidizes on my face causing it to look slightly pink/orange which I hate. I do like the staying power and it's a pretty decent foundation, but I won't be coming back to it. I missed my VA so much and was finally able to order another. Overall I'd actually give this a 3.5.
Mixed feelings about this one. I was super excited to get this as it was raved on Youtube. But can I say I like it? Hmm not really.
The color I bought seemed quite neutral-yellow in the tube but on my face it had a pink undertone which I was disappointed about. The smell is quite chemically it does smell like a 'foundation' but I guess I've been using non-scented foundations for too long. Anyways the packaging is great although the lid can be flimsy.
This has a habit of becoming streaky when trying to blend, since I prefer paddle brushes it takes a bit longer to work into the skin. It's also terrible with dry skin. It's a nightmare trying to even out. People were raving about the coverage but I found it quite average. I have acne scarring and this barely covered it. I was surprised. I gave this 3 stars because despite the color I can always balance it out with powder. Despite having dry skin I can always moisturise. But most of all this has amazing staying power. AMAZING. It lasts so freaking long.
I wouldn't buy it again because I don't really enjoy an overly matte finish as I have dry skin. The coverage wasn't high enough either. But I can see this working for so many men and women who have the 'typical' oily, bits of redness type of skin.
Great foundation. Gives just the right amount of coverage and looks smooth on skin.
