I have had this foundation for over two weeks now and so far, no complaints! I purchased Maestro from GA, and was NOT impressed. For someone with oily skin, I cannot exclaim enough how much I love this. It really does have a beautiful finish. I think it will be even more beautiful in winter when I do get a tiny bit more dry. They have an AMAZING color range and I matched perfectly to 4.5. I love this bottle significantly more than Maestro, I prefer the pump to the dropper. A little goes a long way for me, and I have a bit of redness. Never looks cakey. I use a beauty blender or I'll use my sigma f80 brush and it's just flawless. Expensive, but beautiful.

Ok, ok, ok...so I finally had to break down and realize that this is HG status for me:\ It is just sooo expensive that I was trying with no avail to find a cheaper alternative. When I tell you that EVERY time I wear this I get sooo many compliments and when I wear anything else from, Tarte Amazonian Clay, CD AirFlash, MAC Mineralize to Clinique Even Better...just to name a few;)) almost no compliments. I do everything else the same but change the foundation. It is really amazing to me, but it always happens. The finish is like no other and it goes on flawlessly. When I scratch my face there is no residue in my nails (yuck, when that happens!!)But, the clincher for me was the other day when I was wearing Clinique Even Better and was outside for a long time in AZ summer heat and you could visibly see the streaks from my sweat (nice visual, I know) sooo gross...I usually try not to wear foundation when I know I am going to be sweating like that so this was a new discovery. Well at this point I had to do a comparison with my GA, and, of course, no streaks, just perfection after running around sweating like no other...that was it--deal cinched!!!

Too little coverage for too much money. I gave in and bought this foundation after reading rave reviews on beauty blogs and in magazines. I mean, it's supposed to be award winning, right? I wanted to like it, especially since I paid what I think is a ridiculous amount for foundation $70. Texture: It's liquid-y like MUFE but without the pigment. I still can't figure out what to apply this with. It's so liquid-y that it absorbs into the back of the hand before it can make it from the brush onto the face. Forget about using it with a makeup sponge. Color: I have light-medium neutral skin and bought was matched shade 5. I can understand that maybe this wasn't the perfect shade for my skin, something with a little more yellow tends to give my skin a boost, but this completely washed me out. Coverage: This did nothing to even out my skin or provide any coverage. I had to go heavy on the concealer afterward to hide any flaws. It breaks my skin out, especially with blackheads around my chin. I especially would not recommend this to anyone who has hyperpigmentation or troubled skin. I've seen it on a 25-yr old friend of mine who has an even skin tone and it looked fine. I've used drugstore brands that work better. This one's all hype.

Suddenly, all the foundation out there seem slightly off. I was a Prescriptives person for a long time, then make-up forever and stila, but if its not a too yellow or pink cast, too shiny or matte, something else wasn't working. So, I decided if its something I am wearing everyday, I DO NOT want to dislike anything about it. This foundation is ALMOST that. It has fragrance, which I don't like, but it thankfully goes away after a minute or so. The color (#2) is perfect for me, and that is amazing in itself. The texture is luxurious, which I also appreciate. It looks good after several hours. When i first put it on, it tends to sink into my nose crease, and I have to remove the excess with a q-tip. I don't use much, and maybe its my moisturizer, but that has to be taken care of. I don't wear a primer, but I am considering trying one. I just don't love the idea of layer upon layer of anything on my face. At any rate, so far, this foundation is MUCH better than what I have been using, and so I am happy. Its crazy expensive, making it no "HG." BUT I am still pleased with it for now. When I bought it I saw the YSL Blur perfector - that balm-into powder primerish substance. I tried it on my cheek - oooo - nice. I LOVED the packaging and the idea and the feel of it so I may get one to try and see if it does anything for my foundation sinking into nose crease issue... :) Gosh its fun getting older ;)

I have oily skin to begin but the lo gevity of this product is pretty decent if you set it with a good powder. I like rimmel stay matte or Coty airspun both in transluscent. Let me begin by saying that the first day I wore this I was out and about at the farmers market on a super hot day. After 5 hours of wear my face looked almost better than when I just applied it. My skin looked poreless and luminous, but not shiny whatsoever. And I have oily skin so I was pretty shocked to see this baby last on my skin so long without any touch ups or fading. After a few weeks of use my skin was breaking out because of stress from finals and junk eating, so I needed more coverage and this foundation just wasn't cutting it for me anymore. Because of its consistency it takes a while to build up the product. My blemishes and darks pots were still shining through even after 3 pumps (I know too much foundation guilty), although it still didn't look caked, it just wasn't giving me any coverage! Girl I was livid. I had finals and didn't wanna spend more than 10 minutes pumping the life out of this pricey product. I put on some of my maybelline age rewind concealer on a few spots and set it and was out the door. My point is that this product is geared for those with decent skin. Not full coverage, it's strictly medium in my opinion. Doesn't look cakey, but it won't cover any acne pigmentation scaring. It's worth a shot but I returned this product.

I have repurchased this product now after using up a whole bottle. #2 is one of the few shades of foundation I have found that match my skintone and does not oxidise. The texture is fantastic, even better when applied with a damp beauty blender. I find it lasts very well on my normal to combination skin.My first bottle lasted me a year and I wore it very regularly, I suppose I do not apply a lot but the coverage is great yet very natural looking so I didn't need to use much ( I can't stand foundation that doesn't look like skin - this holds up very well on that front).Also it does not block my pores which I am prone to with most products. Highly recommend.

HG!!!!!! Whenever i get the money to splurge on this i will!! i received like 5 samples from a friend that worked at the make up section at saks. Let me just say it leaves my skin looking dewy and it has a medium coverage. i tried it with a brush and with the beauty blender and the beauty blender gives the best and most even coverage. i am a 5.5 in this foundation and a 54 medium in kat von d.

On the good side, the #4 was a good color match to my LLL/MMM yellow undertone skin. It applies very nicely with my F80 kabuki and is of a thin consistency which I prefer.But I won't be purchasing it again for a few reasons:For such a high end product I noted it has Parabens in it.The coverage was less than I require, but can be layered.It was a splurge for me, but I found it is not one bit better than my L'Oreal True Match Liquid Founation in W3; except that is has a pump.

I am not sure we can ever justify the price for something this size unless it's liquid gold and I do tend to resent it. That said, this is a beautiful foundation. I originally bought the long lasting version and they gave me the sample form of this foundation as well. It took me a while to try it but when I did I put it on before going out in hot weather for several hours and I noticed no difference in longevity between the two. It has a respectable longevity. It lasts me the day with primer and a light dusting of setting powder. What I did find however that the mild chalkiness that I noticed in the long lasting version was not present in this. The long last version is inferior in my opinion. This foundation really does offer a subtle glow and a burring of flaws without heaviness. It's also offers pretty good coverage. I have a decent, clear wrinkle free skin for my age but I do still usually prefer medium coverage and I found this to offer plenty. It's at least buildable. The price is extortionate but you actually dont need to use that much and it really does deliver. I am a pale redhead and it has some shades suitable for the gingers among us. Shade 4 is a great match for me.
