I used to use Femme Couture (from Sally's Beauty Supply) creme compact as my foundation, but I decided to give the Neutrogena Healthy Skin a shot because the FC was a bit thick and not too comfortable for summer days. However, I was extremely disappointed... this has already given me really bad breakouts after just a week. Definitely not going to use it anymore! I read one review on here saying they don't recommend it for oily/combination skin on their website... they need to list that on store shelf displays too so that people don't make the same mistake I did!

I usually do not buy drugstore foundations, but decided to try since it was on sale. Not great, not horrible. Ok color match for me, did not make me breakout, ok light to medium coverage. It is difficult to apply, very dry on my face even after moisturizer. Would be a good filler-in backup foundation.

The color selection was great for me, because I am very fair. My problem lies in the consistency, and wearability of the makeup. Even with a light application, the makeup looked heavy on my skin. It seemed to sit on top of my skin and melted off throughout the day (even with proper exfoliation, moisturizer, and primer.) The liquid took a very long time to dry, and if you set it with powder while it was still wet, the powder/liquid combo flaked off. Shockingly, it accentuated fine lines and wrinkles that I never knew I had, and created both dry patches, and isolated break outs.

I went back and forth on this product for the longest time. Some days I loved it, other days not so much. After much contemplation, I decided I loved it. I bought this because it was supposed to be a great dupe for NARS Sheer Glow, my all time favorite foundation. As a struggling college student, I could no longer purchase NARS without feeling extreme buyers remorse. I am very pale ( I wear Siberia) with neutral undertones, and normal skin. Finding a drugstore foundation that matched my fair skin was very difficult because they were always too dark, or the formula just sucked and made me break out. This foundation not only matches my skin, but it doesn't break me out. It also provides a little more coverage than sheer glow did, which is great. This foundation is not as buildable as NARS; it can get cakey after a few layers.

I didn't like this foundation at all and was fortunately able to return it after using it only once. I thought the consistency to be too runny and felt the coverage was way too sheer. And it seemed a little drying or something- it definetely didn't add any moisture or dewiness to my skin. I also found the color (I used the lightest shade) to be a tad too orangey. Might work for someone who wants very sheer and light coverage and doesn't need their foundation to be moisturizing. Thumbs down for me though.

Overall I think this is a pretty good foundation. It covers my problem areas well and has build-able coverage. Honesty, I even think it HELPS my blemishes go away.... However, if you have dry-patches this foundation will look cakey so make sure to exfoliate/moisturize. Also the smell isn't too great either.. but other than that this is great foundation and I would definitely repurchase it!!

I'm half and half on this foundation. Some days I apply it very well and get complimented on my skin, I have a fair skin tone, very fair, and my niece told me that this gave me a little color, which is of course nice to hear when your tone is like mine, :)With that being said you have to be careful with this product and blend very well, it's too easy to build the orange oompa loompa look, so be sure to blend and use moisturizer and or primer first. as for breakouts, not really but I do take off my make-up every night so as to avoid those..Pros: Good coverage, dewy look.Cons: Doesn't last very long without primer, if not blended well it looks orange and cakey.Overall: Not the best, definitely not the worst. But maybe it will work for you.

I LOVE this foundation. I have it in the shade nude(40) and it matches my skin so well. i have oily skin, but if I set this foundation with translucent powder, I find that I only need to blot my face once in a school day.The formula is nice and blend-able and it provides good coverage while still letting my skin breathe.

For reference, I am NC20 - 25 with dry to very dry skin. At first I was skeptical that such an affordable brand like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Make-up would be a dupe of NARS Sheer Glow Foundation Dewy Finish. (Don't get me wrong, I was once a fan of Neutrogena products bec. some of their skincare products worked for me 15 years back). I felt like a prodigal daughter going back to my roots with Neutrogena. :-) So 2 weeks back, I decided to buy a bottle of NHS in the store. Having light to medium complexion with yellow undertone, I was torn between ( # 40) Nude or (# 60) Natural Beige. It's difficult to choose bec. they don't have swatches in the drugstore. I followed my gut feeling and I got the Nude shade. I was excited to wash and prep my face when I got back home so I could try out my new foundation. And lo and behold, I Love It! I used my hands and it glided smoothly on my face. It gave me light to medium coverage and yes, it is dewy, which I really love bec. I have very dry skin. Out in the sun, this foundation looks so natural and it gives you a healthy skin feeling, like you're not wearing a foundation. The next day, I decided to mix it with my Revlon Colorstay (Normal/Dry Skin) and I love it even more. For me... the matte, medium to full coverage of Revlon and the glowy look of Neutrogena is a match made in heaven. So far, I really really like this foundation for giving my face a healthy glow, no break-outs and I would buy this product again in the future. Pls. try it bec. it's very affordable at $10 - 12/bottle. Thank you Neutrogena for offering a cheaper alternative to NARS Sheer Glow, though I wish you would have more colors to choose from though in the future.
