Excellent for very pale girls! Light Ivory (2) works wonderfully with my skin, though I am a bit oily after wearing it for the whole day. I'd say that a primer underneath would help.
I have this in 04 Pale Porcelain and it seems like a few years back-before I started this menopausal stuff, I liked it, but now I am unsure of the color I was using. I am extremely pale so I wanted the lightest shade. But anyhow, this is horrible on my skin now! Made me look yellow and did not really cover and looked just horrible!
I used this and Lasting Performance for many months (over a year) and didn't realize that they were clogging my pores until I switched to Aquasmooth. Facefinity claims to be oil-free but I don't see how it can be! After wearing the foundation for a day, my pores are always badly clogged but that all went away when I stopped using it.
I have been using this foundation for a fair few years now. Like some other reviewers, I found that the lightest shade matches my skin tone when most other foundations are too yellow or pink. It lasts well and blends easily, but far and away the best thing about this product is the colour match, after all what it the point of having a foundation with SPF, great coverage, good staying powder if it is the wrong colour?
When I was sick a few years ago, this makeup in the very lightest shade worked perfectly. It didn't make my oily skin breakout, and when i did have a breakout it blended and covered very well. it doesn't last forever, but lasts a lot longer than most foundations. If you have freckles though, like I do during the summer, it doesn't work because it can make them look pasty.
Oh, I hope it's not discontinued!! It's still on their Web site. Although, from the drug stores I've been in lately, it almost looks like the whole brand is going under. Wish I had enough money to buy them out of this in Natural Honey. Yes, it can look a touch heavy, and you have to blend well and fast, but the color is PERFECT. Which is nearly impossible for me. And it lasts-I'll have some oil break through, but it doesn't break up, so I can blot without taking any of it off, and it looks as fresh afterwards as it did when first applied. I also wear Revlon Skin Mattifying (I live near a Revlon outlet, so I can still get it) but that breaks up when the oil gets through. PLEASE, MF, don't let this one go away!!
I bought this on sale in the lightest shade of natural honey, and it is quite a nice foundation. I've actually stopped using my laura mercier, which had replaced my urban decay foundation. so i'll use this till I find something better. i like that it isn't too runny and is a flattering shade that brightens my skin as opposed to making it look like i have orange mud on my face. (not that mercier did that...but hers is a lot runnier) too bad it's discontinued.
i am always the absolute last person to try something before they discontinue it. this is another thing i'm pretty sure they are discontinuing since i got it for 50% off...but i just wanted to say...ladies, if you are looking to try this and you see it onsale snatch it up. it's worth it.
my fiance just asked me what i have been using on my skin to make it look so glowy and healthy, and the only thing i have done differently is use this.
I don't think it works good on my skin.I cannot find a color which really matches my skintone.I bought the color in "pale',it's too pale.and it looks like a white mask when I wear it.it doesn't last long.By the way,I like the package,it's easy to use it.
This foundation excels in the color department if you are very pale like me and you have a hard time finding foundation that matches. MF foundations that are on the light side don't have super pink or orange undertones like a lot of other foundations for fair skin. Outside of that, it's a pretty ordinary foundation. It has some SPF, which is great, but there's tons of foundations out there with SPF too. It's a medium coverage foundation even though it's advertised as being very long lasting. This is not a problem for me as I like sheer foundation anyway, but it's falsely advertised. It doesn't really help much with the skin texture either. It can emphasize dry spots and it doesn't help with oiliness. So, if you are really pale and have a hard time finding foundation in department stores, let alone drugstores you should definitely give this a try. I believe Pale Porcelain and Light Ivory are the 2 lightest colors in the range. You can find it in Walgreens but they often don't stock up on it or they run out. I think they sell this at Walgreens.com. If you have a skin tone that most make-up brands have colors for, then just skip this.
