The shades are extremely natural-looking in color and blend well into any skin tone that differ slightly from each other. It has no parabens, no talc, no mineral oil, and tons of antioxidents. It comes with a well-working pump that puts out just the right amount for your entire face! I have normal to dry skin, and it does not break me out at all (my acne is solely triggered by hormones). The only complaints (cons) I have are: I wish it came in a fuller coverage and I wish it would last longer and transfer less. Other than that, nothing compares to this foundation! I am in love with this, and I can't give it up!
I think this foundations color is excellent for those with very fair skin. I purchased the porcelain and it was a perfect match for me. I have never used another drugstore brand that was light enough for my skin. The coverage is medium to full and this makeup wears very well throughout the day. However, I had one of the worst breakouts I have had in years after a week of using this foundation. I was getting blemishes in areas that I have never broken out in before. I would not recommend this foundation for anyone with sensitive or acne prone skin.
I really, REALLY like this product. It makes my skin look amazing, it's very close to my skin tone (I bought Porcelain), and it controls oil pretty decently. Unfortunately, because I am super ridiculously oily, it does start to look cakey at the end of the day, but I've never had a foundation that doesn't do that. Out of all the foundations I've tried, this one looks the nicest for the longest amount of time. Definite repurchase (and my HG at the moment! Haha)!!
LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!
Definetly the best foundation U have ever used, give the most amazing finish, looks so flawless!!! and stays on all day!! NO PARABENS or MINERAL OIL yay!
I LOVE this foundation! Melts into your skin, and leave a clean, healthy glow. Never heavy or caked up. Your skin shows through but your flaws are covered : ) What more could you ask for. I have been using this since it came out. Have had to buy Tawny Beige on E-Bay because I can no longer find it at CVS : ( Afraid this is being discontinued : ( I find everything in this make up line to be high quality, and hope to see it stay on the shelves for years to come!
Overall, this was a pretty great foundation. I loved the packaging, I could see how much was left, and it was very sanitary with a pump. Also, the pump was perfect because just one pump was the exact amount I needed for my whole face. It had really great coverage too, and I thought that the color selection was great and easy to match, especially when considering how difficult drugstore foundation matching can be.
The downsides were that it never felt like it truly dried. The finish is dewy, which is gorgeous, but if you have oily skin, like myself, it can be a little too much, so I always had to set it with powder. Even when I set it with powder though, it never felt dried, would always come off on my hands if I touched my face, or only boyfriends shirt when I hugged him…not cute. Also, because of this, the staying power wasn't that great. It did last around 4-6 hours, but after that I found that it would get blotchy, or just not look good anymore, if it was there at all.
It seems like this foundation would be great for dry skinned girls. Maybe it would sink into dry skin a little better, and it would have better staying power if it didn't mix with the oils on my face half way through the day.
Unfortunately, although it leaves a beautiful finish with amazing coverage, it's just not my HG.
I purchased the shade Sandy Beige which works right now for the spring but I have a feeling in the summer I would need Tawny Beige. For a drugstore foundation this was not cheap, $21 CDN plus tax. This to me is a full coverage foundation. Packaging is in a pump bottle and I find one pump is more than enough to cover my entire face. If I need lighter coverage I apply this with my fingers and then use a fairly dense powder brush like the Ecotools Bronzer brush to buff it into my skin. If I require more coverage I use a sponge and apply it using a tapping motion. I usually just powder my t-zone and leave the rest of my face as is. This foundation lasts all day for me and I usually only need to blot my nose. The finish is pretty natural and dewy. The only thing I noticed is that if you are not careful with application it is easy to look "cakey" if you use too much. Overall a good drugstore foundation.
If you are a NW25, then look no further for a perfect match! Nude Beige covers redness, softens imperfections and looks completely natural. I have tried all top of the line liquid foundations--Chanel, LaMer, Armani, and more--and this is the only one that I will repurchase for an amazing match and believable finish. I can't believe I actually found a drugstore foundation for $8 (CVS) that outscores $50-$75 high-end foundations!
Again, this was wonderful for the first few hours then my skin started to react. I'm beginning to suspect I shouldn't wear foundations anymore and I should stop my search for a better foundation... Anyway, I'm NC35 and Sandy Beige is a very good match. Creamy with medium coverage, this is a good foundation, just not for me.
AMAZING. Every foundation I love seems to be discontinued. I used Maybelline Shine Free for years before that was discontined. Then after a long hunt, I found my next beloved foundation Revlon Colorstay Active Light...also now discontinued. I was beginning to get discouraged when I ran across great reviews of this foundation here. I decided to give it a try and could not be happier. This applies like a dream, I would say coverage is medium but definitely buildable. It's not a true matte finish, but is semi-matte and very silky. I set this with my MAC blot powder and I'm good to go! Love it! It feels like I'm wearing nothing at all. Crossing my fingers that this doesn't get discontinued!
