this product looks terrific when my skin is not breaking out. it covers really well. gives it a great look!! i love it. but when i have a random pimple on my chin or so, the foundation does not work with it. it flakes, it doesnt stay, its a mess. i use it on my "good days" and it works wonderfully
Did not work for me at all. Somehow it makes my skin looks blah. It's a bit too "greasy" for my liking and somehow balls up when I apply it with my fingers. Yuck. If you use the given sponge, more of it will get on the sponge and not on your face.Took too much time to perfect it on my face, might as well just use my regular foundation instead of this. Bye bye SKAG!
I have just bought this product last week and could not wait to try it. After I applied it for the first time, I felt so sticky and heavy on my face. For me, I do not think the cream transfers to powder at all, it is still the greasy cream on my face. So, I have to puff my Nars loose powder all over my face to reduce excessive oiliness. The coverage of this product is so sheer that it can not camouflage inperfection and flaws on my skin. The only one thing of the product that impresses me is that its color can adapt perfectly to my Asian yellow complexion (NC 30 - 35).
It's okay. Definitely not worth the hype and price. I have medium-fair skintone, and I actually thought it made me look really pale after it was all over my face. And I thought it was a little greasy feeling on my skin, but my skin is also pretty oily naturally. It wasn't terrible, but I wasn't impressed with the overall effect. For the amount of coverage and time it took to put it on, I'll stick to my regular mineral powder foundation, thanks.
I really like this product. It's sheer, which I like, since I dont need much coverage. It also makes my skin looks smooth and airbrushed and for summer time, it keeps my face from being oily. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone looking for a lot of coverage, since you will be disappointed. The only thing I dont like about this is how expensive it is!!!!
I love this product, it really does what it advertises, it is about the only foundation that fits true to my skintone, it covers my pores, blends in with my concealer, and it is not oily. When I first got this product, it felt oily but it is actually drying, so I put it only after I moisturize my skin, and that fixed the problem of it looking too powdery on me. But it totally surprise me how fast this thing runs out, I mean it is not cheap, but for the amount you get, it is outrageously expensive! Then I think it does not wear so long, but I just never touch up so I can't say. It definitely has a very sheer coverage which is why I love it, but at the same time it hides the pores. I would definitely recommand and buy again until I find something more affordable for my skintone.
i like this product i just wish it would have worked on my skin tone. when i applied it, it looked very muddy and dirty. i really liked how sheer it was but it did feel a bit oily. this may work for people with darker skin but on me it just looked dirty and greasy
Aside from the crappy little sponge that is given, this product works wonderful for me. I also like that I use minimal product for all over coverage. It doesn't feel or look cakey. I never once had to touch up while I was out for about 4 hours. Forgot to mention that I did apply this over Philosophy' s "The Present". Glided right on!
Bought this in the Fast & Flawless kit so I could try different products. It's all going back to Sephora. I had this in a small sample size before and found it okay for stowing in your purse for emergencies etc. Purchasing the full size didn't turn out as well. If you're going to spend all that time applying this, why not just wear your regular foundation? Most of all, it just made look like a big oil-slick.
I loved this when I first got it. I saw videos on QVC as was also skeptical on how it would match every skintone (odd how they brought out a deep version!) but ordered it anyway. This was last summer and so it actually matched my skintone at the time very well, I would describe it as medium to medium-tan. It also makes your skin feel gorgeous, really soft and velvetty.
However I did go through it very quickly and soon bought another, and another! My only problem with this, other than the fact that it is far too orange for my skin in winter, is that it causes me to breakout. I tried this again a couple of days ago and sure enough after the second day of wear I had developed some of those painful lumpy under the skin spots around my jaw line.
All in all, this is a good product if your skin is medium all year round and dry as this product is very moisturising. It doesn't cause my sister to breakout so I guess that aspect varies from person to person. Don't write it off completely because of the bad reviews though, give it a go and make up your own mind.
