I have been using this foundation for a fair few years now. Like some other reviewers, I found that the lightest shade matches my skin tone when most other foundations are too yellow or pink. It lasts well and blends easily, but far and away the best thing about this product is the colour match, after all what it the point of having a foundation with SPF, great coverage, good staying powder if it is the wrong colour?
When I was sick a few years ago, this makeup in the very lightest shade worked perfectly. It didn't make my oily skin breakout, and when i did have a breakout it blended and covered very well. it doesn't last forever, but lasts a lot longer than most foundations. If you have freckles though, like I do during the summer, it doesn't work because it can make them look pasty.
Oh, I hope it's not discontinued!! It's still on their Web site. Although, from the drug stores I've been in lately, it almost looks like the whole brand is going under. Wish I had enough money to buy them out of this in Natural Honey. Yes, it can look a touch heavy, and you have to blend well and fast, but the color is PERFECT. Which is nearly impossible for me. And it lasts-I'll have some oil break through, but it doesn't break up, so I can blot without taking any of it off, and it looks as fresh afterwards as it did when first applied. I also wear Revlon Skin Mattifying (I live near a Revlon outlet, so I can still get it) but that breaks up when the oil gets through. PLEASE, MF, don't let this one go away!!
I bought this on sale in the lightest shade of natural honey, and it is quite a nice foundation. I've actually stopped using my laura mercier, which had replaced my urban decay foundation. so i'll use this till I find something better. i like that it isn't too runny and is a flattering shade that brightens my skin as opposed to making it look like i have orange mud on my face. (not that mercier did that...but hers is a lot runnier) too bad it's discontinued.
i am always the absolute last person to try something before they discontinue it. this is another thing i'm pretty sure they are discontinuing since i got it for 50% off...but i just wanted to say...ladies, if you are looking to try this and you see it onsale snatch it up. it's worth it.
my fiance just asked me what i have been using on my skin to make it look so glowy and healthy, and the only thing i have done differently is use this.
I don't think it works good on my skin.I cannot find a color which really matches my skintone.I bought the color in "pale',it's too pale.and it looks like a white mask when I wear it.it doesn't last long.By the way,I like the package,it's easy to use it.
This foundation excels in the color department if you are very pale like me and you have a hard time finding foundation that matches. MF foundations that are on the light side don't have super pink or orange undertones like a lot of other foundations for fair skin. Outside of that, it's a pretty ordinary foundation. It has some SPF, which is great, but there's tons of foundations out there with SPF too. It's a medium coverage foundation even though it's advertised as being very long lasting. This is not a problem for me as I like sheer foundation anyway, but it's falsely advertised. It doesn't really help much with the skin texture either. It can emphasize dry spots and it doesn't help with oiliness. So, if you are really pale and have a hard time finding foundation in department stores, let alone drugstores you should definitely give this a try. I believe Pale Porcelain and Light Ivory are the 2 lightest colors in the range. You can find it in Walgreens but they often don't stock up on it or they run out. I think they sell this at Walgreens.com. If you have a skin tone that most make-up brands have colors for, then just skip this.
I was oily within two hours. By the end of the day it had almost disappeared. It looked nice in the morning, though. I liked the way it blended. I think this is for normal or normal to dry skin, though, and it should say that on the packaging.
I was sad when they stopped selling this makeup a couple of months ago. I ordered it from ebay for $5.99 recently and I don't regret it at all. It's the best makeup I've tried so far. I only put a little bit on my cheeks and spread it and it looks very natural, and #2 light ivory matches my skintone exactly. I'll buy this again.
This has to be the worst foundation I have ever tried. I am a fan of heavier cover foundations as I have some blemishes and marks that I like to cover but this is just awful. Horrible dry texture, hard to blend, horrific chalky mask like finish, it even made me shiny in places when it wore in places after a couple of hours wear and apparently it's strong point is supposed to be that it is a stay put foundation.
When I went to put powder over the shiny patches it looked even more unnatural and unlike skin, my face was a completely different colour from my neck and I have never ever needed to apply any foundation to my neck before even though I do like to wear quite full coverage foundations.
Wearing this foundation made me look like a drag queen!
The packaging is horrific as well, really uninspiring and in those horrible hard to squeeze plastic tubes that I absolutely loathe.
I would so not wish this on my worst enemy, so terrible and not terrifically cheap for such a bad product either I bought mine for 10.00 GBP!
Also to crown it all my BF took a polaroid of me while I was wearing this when we were mucking about and when I saw it, oh my I looked liked Casper the friendly ghost or something my complexion was matte, dead and flat!
I honestly cannot imagine this looking good on anyone.
However, I have since bought Facefinity in Compact Powder foundation form and I have to say, I love it!
In compact form it does not resemble the original liquid formulation at all, and it actually looks good as it wears with my skin.
In powder form it's not perfect, I'd prefer heavier coverage and a better range of shades but it is much, much better and when I can't be bothered to put on a liquid foundationbut still want some coverage this is always what I reach for.
By far the best compact powder foundation that I have tried although admittedly there are not many foundations that come in powder formulation. As for Facefinity Liquid don't ever go there.
