Sorry to spoil the party, guys! I agree with everyone below me that this is a great foundation, great staying power, a dream to blend, etc, etc.
BUT: it transfers like mad!! Onto my cell phone and everything that touches my face, and worst of all: it transfers to, stains and ruins my compact powders, blushes, eyeshadows and brushes!! NO WAY!! (My good ol' trusted Revlon Colorstay - you've never done this to me!)
The only way I see around this is acquiring 3 or 4 complete sets of cheap makeup brushes and never ever double dip again!
I've been using this as an under eye concealer for several weeks now, and I have to say I love it! This product is light, gentle, and blends easily. When applying it, I don't feel like I am pulling on the skin under my eye, which is important to because I'm starting to see wrinkles form. I have dark circles and this does an excellent job concealing them. I don't even have to use a yellow concealer as a base anymore because this does such a great job! I use a bit of emu oil to help hydrate, then put a bit of this around my eyes and voila, my skin feels great all day! It only takes a little for the whole day, so this container will last awhile, but when it does run out I will definitely buy this again! The only con I can think of is that while I like the pot type container, it was a little difficult tell the shade, since it looks lighter on the outside than when the cover is off.
This foundation is amazing. It goes on smooth and covers really well without feeling too heavy. It matches my skin tone perfectly and blends to a natural looking finish. The consistency is just right, thick enough so that its easy to apply, thin enough so its easy to blend. The packaging is sleek and professional looking, though I do wish there was more product inside. I got mine at Target for $11, and it was definitely worth it!
ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE!
some people may not like the packaging but i love it!
it's a little pricey for me (I live in Canada and it was 17 dollars at walmart)
the shade range is awesome i am in rich ginger.
it looks better and better the longer you wear it !
and it most definitely lasts all day even though my skin is EXTREMELY oily!
love love love love love love <3
I REALLY love this foundation. It's really build-able coverage and keeps my skin from getting oily. I have dry skin but very very oily t-zone, but I don't have to touch up this foundation after setting it once with translucent powder. One thing though, I have to heavily moisturize or it'll go in fine lines and define my dryer skin areas. Other then that, it's perfect :)
I pretty much love this product! I've been trying to use up all my old foundations that I used to use all the time so that i can save this and use it on special occasions.
Feels lightweight, but provides medium to full coverage
hard to see your shade throught the glass (I happened to choose the right one the first time, but it was hard to tell)
I suggest you apply this with a stippling brush. I use my Real Techniques stippling brush and the head of the brush is small enought to fit in the jar, and i feel like i use less product this way.
It leaves a semi matte finish which makes it look very natural, no need for powder unless you have oily skin.
This has been my go-to foundation for at least a year now, if not longer. This product has a great consistency, very light and creamy without collapsing the instant you put it on your skin. I'd say it has a medium coverage - it does a great job at covering redness or small unevenness, but major breakouts or other issues, not so much. I do set this with a powder since I have a pretty oily t-zone, but it still looks fine! I also have pretty acne-prone skin, but this has never once broken me out, which is pretty amazing to me. I have applied it with a cosmetic sponge and a brush, and currently prefer the brush, but I think you could apply this several different ways depending on what works best for you. I do think it's a bit on the pricier side, somewhere in the realm of $13 or so, but I just haven't found anything that works better than it, so for the time being it's definitely worth it!
This product is horrible. It smells like plastic and is so thick and heavy on my skin. Would not buy it again.
I think this is a great foundation for every day use. I find it sets really well- even if i don't use a translucent powder. It blends really well and lasts all day.
I have dark circles under my eyes which are genetic and this is the only non-cream foundation that conceals them- I don't even need concealer now. My skin is pretty clear so I cannot justify using thick cream foundations with heavy coverage for every day but the problem with liquid foundations is that they tend to make my skin oily and shiny. This foundation- however- is just right.
The only problem is that the foundation has a weird smell but it goes away quickly. Will definitely buy again
I have tried this out and it is very nice and feels incredibly silky on my skin. This stuff covers very nice; on my skin it is not full coverage when have a bad skin week. It was more like, more than medium coverage, but not exactly full. (Only wear this during special occasions or when I'm going to take a lot of photos since this does not have SPF)
Overall, this foundation is very impressive and I don't really have any cons for this. In Mac I am NC 30 in the summer; I used warm golden. Right now it is to dark for me but in the summer it matched me pretty well. I applied this with my fingers which gave me the best results. The fact that it's in a jar doesn't really bother me that much.
With a primer it lasted me all day and looked great in photos as it didn't feel heavy on my face.
I say go for it, it's worth a try.
