This makes my skin oily only after a few hours, which is very frustrating for me. It gives me very good coverage, though--and a little goes a long way. I guess the only problem I have with Studio Sculpt is that it makes my face oily, but that can be fixed with oil blotting tissues.
Well, I received a sample of this from my MAC counter in NW15 (I am NW20 but they run a little dark, according to the saleslady). I tried this on and it was good, but not nearly as good as the studio fix powder + foundation. Maybe I just prefer powder, but the liquid looked a little mask like in heavy amounts and frankly the saleslady who said she was wearing it looked like she was wearing a mountain of skin makeup with obvious texture and pores - which isn't my style. So I'd say to skip this and go for their powder foundations. I'll still give it a 4 because it's a good product and my sampler worked - but I know it's not their best stuff.
i really like this foundation, i find it easy to blend, gives great coverage, looks natural and slightly dewy.. not oily by any means, just a gorgeous slight sheen.. it lasts throughout the day with a good primer of course, also make sure to set it!
NW15 for reference
so i gave this an overall rating of 2
i thought i would love this foundation...the whole gel texture thing sounded amazing. i was matched to the same shade that i normally wear...NC40
i found the foundation hard to blend and kinda cakey. i didn't use a lot either because i keep hearing USE A PEA SIZE AMOUNT. that's true btw but yeah still not smooth and easy to blend
i don't have oily skin but i found myself looking shiny and after like 2 hours
the packaging was great!!
the price was not good....at all...considering the foundation had no staying power and made me look icky
also what is it with this foundation and giving an ugly white cast in pictures?! it looks like it matches perfectly in person and then you take a picture with flash and it's horrifying. i dont get that with other foundations..
i keep hearing revlon colorstay is an amazing foundation. ill have to try that out. i know that's more matte but i think it's better than using this foundation and looking oily and shiny :(
im really not a fan of this product, it makes me look so pale, i found it pretty hard to blend and its a little over priced, some cheaper brands ive used have worked much better
I didn't really like this. I thought the colour was great, I'm an NC15. It made my face look dull, cakey and unnatural. I think it also made me break-out. I believe full-coverage foundations just don't agree with my skin, because I have some bumps especially on my forehead and it seems these type of foundations only accentuarete(right spelling?!) them. I love estee lauder dw light, that is definetely the best!
I love this, unfortunately it does NOT love me.
It feels lovely on the skin, has a nice, almost gel like texture; okay so the colour wasn't the best match for me but I've had that problem with MAC foundations before.
However it gave me the worst breakout of my entire life. We are talking huge cystic acne bumps. The first place hit was my chin where I normally break out so at first I didn't think much of it until I got them on my cheeks, jawline and forehead. Places I never, ever break out. It was awful!
As soon as I stopped using it my skin cleared up.
I don't know what is in it but it's bad, bad stuff.
If it doesn't break up out, congratulations.
I love this product, the colour is an amazing match and it makes my skin look absolutely flawless!A little bit goes a long way and its really hydrating without being oily, I have struggled for so long to find a good foundation and I think this is it!
OMG...i spoke way too soon, i wrote a review about this last week and how it looked flawless, on my dry sunburnt skin...yeah i think people with dry skin might be the only people that have luck with this foundation because now that my skin is all healed, i have comination skin, only through my tzone it looks and feels terrible.... I put it on today and then set it with my powder and right after i finished doing my hair i touched my face and it felt disgusting. I loved this product, but i only recommend it to those with dry skin...
I really liked the coverage and feel of this foundation. And I also liked that it is in a tube.. BUT I broke out really bad, and have had to stop using it so it was a waste for me- and I usually dont have bad break outs. Back to L'oreal true match
