Greasy feeling. Set in my pores. Horror!

I'm not an expert or super duper fussy about foundations, but I do have my standard. This is the worst foundation I've ever used. It's especially bad considering the price ($42). I got snookered because it's oil free. So, after trying to work it out with a several different methods and ways, I reached the following conclusion:Pros:-Packaging. Cons:-- says oil free, but ~20 mins after applying, my entire face is a disco ball.-- feels grainy when blending (even though it feels oh-so smooth when you rub the foundation in the pan). -- doesn't blend well - patchy.-- doesn't feel smooth on the face.-- feels very heavy.-- no spf.-- oxidizes when I use sunscreen under it. (what's the point? if it doesn't have SPF in it, at least I should be able to use SS under)-- priceHuge regret. Will throw out and no more BB foundation.

I love that a little product goes a long way, it blends really well, and it has buildable coverage.I didn't like the staying power and unfortunately it caused me to break out. I tried it with and without primer and used my favorite setting powder. I couldn't make it work for me.I'm NC/NW10 and I used Porcelain (the lightest shade). It's a pretty good match, but perhaps slightly too dark.

Its should be reformulated and not called 'oil free' but other than that, it is a perfect match for my NC50is skin. I hope it doesnt get dry like mac studio tech, and i love that it states the same color up till the end of the day. lasting power is awesome, but it tends to stain. I use imans blotting powder over it, or bobbi's sheer in basic brown to set it, or Laura mercier, whatever tickles me fancy.

As others have said, this glides on like a dream. I use this esp when I want to use cream blush because it will blend beautifully. I also love the convenience - it's swipe and go, no fuss and it doesn't accentuate the flaky bits even though it's supposed to be cream to powder. The colour match is practically perfect (I think it's Sand for my NC20/25).Having said that, I'm a bit of a foundation whore and I don't like this enough compared to others I've tried to buy it again. First, the coverage is pretty light and doesn't cover acne well so I can only wear this on "good" days. Second, it never really "sets" so if you're going to be out all day, expect it to wear off. Or add some powder (which I don't do cos I'm laaaaazy). Price-wise, it's pretty steep considering the amount of product. I got mine off strawberry cosmetics at a discount but wouldn't pay full price for it.

First of all, don't let the fact that I won't buy it again deter you if you have the $$$ to spend. I have always had trouble finding an oil-free compact foundation that matches my skin-tone exactly. For those of you with darker skin, the match is great. It also glides on, and provides good coverage without looking cakey. It did a great job of covering up my blemishes and occasional red spot on my face. I loved that it takes less than a minute to apply-for those of you who don't have a lot of time in the morning, it's perfect. My only concern is the price- in Indonesia, it costs over 50USD. If I use it everyday in the morning, it runs out in approximately 3 weeks. So, it's very pricey. I decided the last time it started to run out, that I needed to find a cheaper option. Like I said, if you have the bucks for it or perhaps don't want to use it every day, it's a good product for darker women with oily skin who don't want to spend a lot of time on their makeup.

I got this in natural tan to my surprise it matches my skin perfectly (I have a yellow undertone so its near impossible to find the right color ) being tired of foundations leaving my face pink I decided to give this a try. The compact is huge but it looks real nice n it has a big mirror wich I love . The coverage Is great my face looks flawless covers the redness n even my birthmark (that's how good the coverage is) It leaves a dewy finish look real natural. Hasn't broke me out yet like anyother foundation make sure you remove it before goin to bed I'm sure you won't have problems with breakouts that way... Over all I love it, the coverage is great and you don't even need to apply that much product.

I have olive undertones and moderate acne scars and discoloration so a light to medium coverage is what I was looking for. This product gives a light natural coverage however, it doesn't stay on very well and is easily smeared and wiped off. So easily that touching your face results in almost removing the makeup. The finish is also shiny despite being oil free.

UPDATE 2/18/10: Sadly, this is not my HG. The shade does match my yellow skin fairly well. It can almost look like I am not wearing any foundation on. I noticed that if my skin has been pretty good, this looks and applies really well. I have noticed that this has the tendency to dry my cheeks and can accentuate dry areas. Because this is a cream foundation, it's easy to have a tendency to pile on when your blemishes are not fully covered. If you have fairly good skin that is combo/oily, this looks like it may work for you. ***********I wanted to try Bobbi Brown foundations just because it was recommended as one with the most yellow tones. It's been really hard for me to find the right matching foundation because of my yellow undertone. I've tried everything from chanel to mac to drugstore brands (i'm still willing to try Dior). but so far, this has given me the most radiant but matching finish. MAC did match me fairly well and for the longest time I thought it was the best that I was going to get. but after trying this, my face looked more radiant and just brighter (something that Mac has not done for me so far). I thought of getting the liquid foundation but after trying this, I couldn't really seem to notice the difference between the two so i opted to try this just for the sake of it. Looks pretty good so far.

This was the first non-mineral foundation I have tried in years, as I wanted to get a creme or liquid foundation because I have moderate acne and wanted a higher coverage:( I went straight to the Bobbi Brown counter because I had heard that they had a wide range of colours (I'm super pale too!), and the SA suggested this foundation in Porcelain because it was very high coverage, and oil free. And despite paying $75 (australian)I was so happy with it I was almost skipping home! When I applied it the next day though, I panicked. Not only was there far less in the compact than I had thought (yet surprise! there was a sponge underneath) but when I first applied it it looked far too cakey and orangey, and it seemed to settle around any problem areas. Disappointed, I set it with powder and left it on to see how it would last the day. The one thing that pleased me at first was the coverage- one swipe with a brush and you could barely see my acne. Well, what can I say? My bad first impression was totally wrong! Within 1/2 and hour I came back to the mirror and I couldn't believe how flawless my skin looked- and dewy instead of oily. The colour was almost an exact match (far better than other non-mineral foundations I have used), although I wish this came in Alabaster- BB's lightest shade in other foundations- but I am probably just being fussy. Even better- it stayed on all day, looking as fresh as ever! It is, expectedly, heavier than my mineral makeup, but noting I can't cope with. I guess I just had to let it settle into my face for a bit. The big test is whether it will make me break out even more- so I'll let you know. Overall, I will continue to use my fabulous Lilly Lolo in Porcelain during the day, but this will be great at night when I need a slightly darker colour (LL makes me look like a ghost at night!) and better coverage. I know there are some awful reviews, but give this a try- it could be worth it!
