The best foundation I've ever used to date. It keeps my oily skin at bay and doesn't look cakey. I use a kabuki brush to apply it; this method requires so little product to cover my face that one bottle lasts me like 4 months! My only complaint is that it oxidizes throughout the day, though it only changes color a LITTLE BIT. But what foundation doesn't?
Anyway... LOVE IT, LOVE IT.
I received a sample of this from sephora. It gives really good coverage, but I don't like the texture. It doesn't look smooth and pretty. But if it had kept me from getting super oily and lasted through the day, I could have gotten over the texture. However, I did get oily. And instead of just getting shiny looking, it separated and looked disgusting. I noticed that another "matte" foundation did the same thing. I read on here that some matte foundations have an oil-absorbing ingredient, and when it absorbs its fill, it separates. Makes sense... sounds like what was happening with this.
I had high hope for this foundation since there are so many good reviews. However, it just didn't work out for me. The foundation doesn't go on smoothly, a lil bit dry I would say. It made my skin so oily after 2 hours. I would not recommend it.
Not a fan of this foundation.
I bought this from Sephora after the SA recommended this to me. I was looking for a natural looking foundation that feels covers but doesn't feel thick. The price is expensive for such a small bottle. I like the packaging as it is different from all the other foundations out there. I gave it only 3 lippys 'cuz it covers and makes my face look natural, but it tends to fade over time and it makes my face look oily. Not to mention that the SA gave me the WRONG shade.
I am looking for a foundation that covers, feels light and is a liquid. This is a liquid, is not heavy and at the end of the days feels like I have nothing on. I can't decide if that is good or not. I use a concealer which helps make my skin look smooth. I wish it was a little, little bit thicker. I don't think it would hurt. However, for an everyday foundation for work, I think it is great. It was suggested to me at a Sephora Store.
I heard lots of raves with this foundation so I purchased it threw the sephora website. I have oily/ acne prone skin and I felt the coverage wasn't as good as I thought it would be. I broke out from this product oddly enough and I got the color 30 which was way to light for my skin tone. I would probably give this another chance if I can make sure the color works to get the best results. I just felt the price was to high for what the product produced but i'll wait to find the perfect one still.
Bought this over the weekend after reading tons of good reviews on MUA and other sites. MA first tried on #65, and while I thought it looked ok, she was clearly unsatisfied. She actually removed and redid my foundation 2x till she was happy with the color match and face-neck color merge.. ended up buying #55, which strangely although lighter, matches perfectly! As my colleage and fellow MU addict said, "it's your skin but better!"
Packaging is good, plastic squeeze bottle so u don't waste. Since i'm only looking to even out my tones with sheer-med coverage, i dot down the middle then blend outwards, using as little product as possible. It was too cakey with the MAC 190 fdtn brush, will try it with the 187 soon :)
will update once i've worn it for more than a week, but this might replace my HG Chanel Mat Lumiere since it has better color range.
While I do love this foundation, I feel like it could be better. My face is super, super oily and the foundation does last as long as you touch up every now and then. I carry blotting paper around with me and loose powder/bronzer when I notice my face getting too shiny. Mind you, this is after walking around campus/working with kids/public transportation - this is around 8 hours. Beggars can't be choosers. :)
Coverage-wise, this stuff is amazing. It hides all my spots and scars but I find that sometimes it dries out a pimple and throughout the day, it'll be flaky around dry areas.
Wish this was a liiiitle cheaper, too.
LOVE this foundation... Feels like Velvet on my skin... I dont even need concealer with this kind of coverage... I will definately be re-purchasing.
I have been using this foundation for a few weeks and i love it! i think i even like it more than MUFE's hd foundation! with the HD, i found my skin looked all dewy/oily at the end of the day, thats not the case with this one! it dries very quickly, but i do it in sections with my 109 and i love the finish it gives. it's matte and this with MAC's mineralized skinfinish natural gives me flawless coverage. i have dry patches on my skin and i don't feel like it shows them at all. i just make sure to moisturize and prime my skin beforehand. i'm about an nc15 in mac foundations, and got the no. 20, it matches perfectly! this foundation unlike MAC's, has absolutely no scent to it, which is awesome because i hate the smell of MAC's foundations. the only thing i did not like about this foundation was the amount you got for the price (1 oz for $40? mac gives you what, 3 oz for $25?) and the packaging. i did not care for the squeeze bottle, i found that you either got to little or too much when trying to squeeze it out. all and all, i definitely plan on buying this foundation again!
