wish it had better packaging, like a pumping bottle.,other than that i like it.
I don't need setting powder with this foundation, so it's time-saving for me. i guess it's little drying for whom has dry skin, but i have combination skin, no problem for me. i had work out, and i wore this for test, it passed! i like it as much as revlon colorstay active light foundation.
This is my favorite foundation so far. I have oily skin with dry patches, so other foundations will accentuate the dry skin and creases and then wear off in blotches on the oily areas. This foundation doesn't do either. Love it. No break outs and no weird fragrances. It does leave a slight dewy finish, so if you prefer matte, revlon colorstay would be better. It doesn't stay 24hrs, but about 10hrs on my oily skin.
I have acne-prone skin that is combination/oily. This foundation is definitely for the oily skins out there! It applies easy enough and has full coverage. The only thing I don't like about this foundation is that you have to apply a lot of it to build coverage and I feel kinda caked on sometimes. My color is Sand Beige and it matches PERFECTLY for my medium-fair yellowy undertone winter skin. The packaging is annoying because it comes out too much sometimes which wastes product.
The finished product is amazingly flawless, no pores exist and it covers scars from past zits so effortlessly! My boyfriend once told me that my nose and cheeks looked so soft lol! I actually have a lot of noticeable black heads on my nose without makeup so I totally tricked him! hah!
I will probably go back to using this if my Maybelline Smooth Mousse breaks me out a lot.
I purchased Honey Beige knowing that it was darker than my skin colour. This is because I was looking for a good liquid foundation that would match my skin colour when I get darker in the summer. I found that when I applied this foundation (with a sponge), it felt a bit sticky then got worse overtime. I have combination skin with my T-zone being quite oily as well as the area under my eyes, right where my glasses tough my face. I found that these were the same areas that were most shiny throughout the day while using this foundation. Despite the fact that it does transfer onto clothes, it did stay on my face for most of the day...so it does keep some hold. Overall, it was ok but I don't think I'd buy it again.
This is my HG foundation- this is the first time I have ever actually finished a foundation, I will definitely continue to buy this. The coverage is buildable- just know that the colors run dark. Lasts all day and looks great. The only problem is that it doesnt have a pump.
Overall this product was probably the first foundation that I can truly say I have fallen in love with. This may seem like a bold statement but it is just a great product. It has the perfect coverage unless you are truly trying to cover up in which case you might want to add a concealer. Overal it gave me even coverage and my boyfriend(who can usually tell when im wearing make up) didint notice a thing, he even said my face looked super smooth.
It last a very long time(have not really put the 24 hrs to the test ) but it basically last me all day. It is very sweat proof and I have not yet seen it transfer. The color selection was amazing for me because it was available in my perfect shade.
The product doesen't dry so fast that it prevents blending but also doesen't stay moist in your face for a long time.
The price was about 9 or 10 dollars. My only problem with it is that it does not have a pump. Other than that is an amazing product that i would definatley purchase again.
This doesn't give me much coverage but it is build-able. and you only need the littlest amount of product. It lasts really long and stays on my skin well. And it does however not let my skin breath and breaks me out.
This product is so deceiving because at first I really liked it. However, I just started a new job and now I'm actually scared to wear it to work for fear of seeing how it turns on me later in the day. I bought Ivory and it actually looks orange coming out of the bottle, which freaks me out. I'll apply it on top of moisturizer/sunscreen, then place Clinique's Pore Minimizer Instant Perfector, and a dusting of powder and looks pretty good. But by 11:30 am in the restroom mirror I look like a greasy, radioactive, mess. It's sad too because I like the feel and the weightlessness, plus the initial application looks great. Right now my nerves are frizzled and my oil production is increased with the new job and 90-degree heat and high humidity. So, it's Colorstay for now.
I bought this foundation thinking it would be like their previous Superstay Silky, which was my HG foundation but since they discontinued it I decided to try this one.
I find it quite thick and gloopy, but it has good full coverage and staying power.
The most annoying thing about this product is the bottle, which does not have a pump so it is difficult to get the right amount out, and more messy.
I hated this product at first, but it has grown on me as I've used it more. I may repurchase if I cannot find anything better before I finish the bottle, but for now I am still on the search for my HG foundation..
Unlike many other foundations of similar quality, the liquid is very smooth and super easy to blend. I really love the texture. Doesn't have the unpleasant paint-like smell either, but it does rub off a bit.
Despite all the colour selections they have, most are too pink or orange for people with yellow undertone. I use Sand Beige which is one of the few warm toned shades they have, but I find it still a bit too pink. The next warm toned shade would be nude, but it's a bit too dark and seems to have too much orange in it for me. The colour of the foundation seems to get noticeably darker and more intense the longer you wear it for some reason; so I suggest getting a slightly lighter shade than you normally choose. One really good thing I noticed about this foundation is that it doesn't create that annoying mask effect, especially in photos. I know Revlon CS gives really white cast, but this one doesn't.
When first applied, it's not too matte, not too shimmery. Gives a nice natural looking glow on your skin. But after about 4-6 hours, it starts to melt around my T-zone (on combination skin, but not overly oily). I don't recommend this foundation if you have rather oily skin. It definitely does not last 24 hours, and compared to Revlon CS or L'oreal Infallible, the staying power is a lot weaker.
I was pleasantly surprised how easy it was to remove this foundation. So far it hasn't broken me out, and this has become one of my favourites. I took one lippy out because it doesn't have any sunscreen at all... too bad. Also, I think they should add more warm shades!
