This product is ok if you aren't going to do much during the day, but it is not long lasting at all.
I LOVE THIS STUFF. it provides excellent coverage, while looking natural. the color vanilla is perfect on my tan skin. it'll give you flawless skin. i take a pretty generous amount of it and use my fingers to spread it. however, it doesn't have great staying-power. therefore i apply one layer, let it dry, apply some powder, dab on concealer under my eyes, apply a second layer, and then powder it. that way, it still looks natural, but it will actually last all day. anyway, it's my favorite foundation. try it :]
This was dreadful on me. It make my combination oily skin turn into an oil slick and was very orangey. It was difficult to apply evenly and I had to stop using it after about 2 weeks because it made me break out.
This makeup must be for combination dry skin, because on my combination oily skin it made my nose look like an oil slick. I was disappointed. Plus, the color turned orange on me by midday. I won't be purchasing this again.
I use this everyday and i love it. It goes on smooth and never makes my sensitive skin dry. It's light ,blends well and gives the skin a nice dewy look. Usually get compliments on how creamy my skin looks. The only thing i have a problem with is the coverage. I have very ance prone skin so i use a lot of concealer after the foundation. But if you don't have that problem then the foundation would be perfect.
I used to use this foundation religiously in high school/ college and then moved away from it for a while to try something else .... well I'm back! After trying many other options, I found that nothing, nothing ... matches my skin so well and feels great on to boot! MY HG foundation!
EDITED: I found out this was the source of my breakouts, despite what I said before. Excellent coverage but not worth the acne I got. I switched to Lancome Teint Idole. Here's my original review:
Great foundation! Tons of colors so there's bound to be one for you. I have oily, acne-prone skin. Each foundation I've tried has been flakey, cakey, or... stakey (sorry I had to rhyme.) But this one goes on smooth with fingers or a foundation brush (I actually use a concealer brush as I only spot-check with foundation so that's my foundation brush), it doesn't leave my skin oily, and it stays most of the day. I live in Texas so I sweat a lot (ew) so naturally some of it comes off, but in the cooler months it stays on great. Unless I find something better, this is my HG. continued >>
So far, so good. I'm using this for the first time today, and am finding it really helps hide some of my imperfections without being too heavy. (Which is usually my biggest gripes about any foundation) I applied this really lightly, followed up with Stila pressed powder, and my complexion looks great. I'll update in a couple weeks.
I used this long ago and thought that it was too dark for me. Later, I realized that it was my powder that the SA picked out which was too dark. Anyhow, I embarked on a quest for the perfect foundation. I spent a year and tons of money on different foundations that I would use for at least a few weeks at a time with horrible results. They were either too light, too dark, breakout-causing, too yellow, too orange, or it slides off... and THEN, I rediscovered this. It was exactly what I was looking for. Dare I say that the quest is over? I think so!
the color selection is poor. it's either too pink or orange but the texture of the makeup is nice and blendable and feels soft. the coverage is medium and can build to full.
