Lets start my saying I HATE that there is no pump! BUT I love what's in the bottle. I'm nc 40 and w6 is perfect for me. Super blendable and looks nice threw out the day. Love. Will repurchase.
I am NC20ish skin and W2 fits perfect on my skin, i dont even have to blend it to my neck at all. thats how much it literally fits perfect to my skin tone. pkging is not so good. wish it comes with a pump but its quite cute pkging i would say. price wise, its about $12-15 in Canada and i think its bit pricey for a DS foundation esp for a foundation that does not even come with a pump. but actual foundation itself its really amazing. it covers pretty well i would say medium coverage. I dont have any acne and scar to cover but it evens my tone and fits perfect and feels nice. i have dry skin but it gives nice finish. I moisturize my face really well though and I put make up base that has moisture in it so that coule be the reason. it looks really natural as if Im not even wearing anything on my face. it truely is warm toned foundation no pink/orange its truely yellow/beige undertone which i love love love. i would recommend to ppl with NC 20ish wam yellow toned skin for sure!
i love this foundation! i have combo/oily skin and this stays on well enough through the day(NOTHING ever stays put on my oily tzone skin so ive accepted it) it does look shiny but thats to be expected. to fix it just blot and powder, simple as that. this is a creamy foundation despite its liquid and blends like a dream. theres a great color selection and its decently priced for foundation.it has great medeium buildable coverage that looks natural in a way, like a satin-matte finish. the only thing is that the packaging has no pump and builds up the product on the rim when you constantly pour it out. but thats all, i will continue to buy this!
This was my go-to foundation for years. I have oily skin (my T-zone is a train wreck), so this wasn't the best choice, but this was one of the few liquid foundations I found that matched my incredibly pale skin. After application, my skin looked absolutely flawless (and this was without a primer), but after several hours, it would start to come apart a bit, and by the end of my work day, my skin actually looked pretty splotchy and bad. However, my skin tends to eat foundations up, so this wasn't surprising for me, and I just dealt with it.
I have since switched to mineral foundations, but this was my standby for years. I won't be going back to it ever, but it served its purpose for me and did make my skin look pretty good, even if it was only for a few hours.
I was going through my foundations this weekend and realized that the two I already owned were wayyyyy to dark for me. Like really dark. Like what the heck was I thinking, dark! I must really be pale this winter. So I took a trip to CVS and got this. So many brands right now (Maybelline, Revlon, etc) are way too dark, even their lightest "Ivory" shades are too dark. I got this in W2. This stuff has been out for years, why haven't I tried it sooner??? Great coverage, great finish, doesn't bother my rosacea, oh and speaking of rosacea, this stuff covers so well I CAN WEAR BLUSH AGAIN!!! Will keep using and update my review.
Loved the color range (separate foundations clearly labelled Neutral, Warm, and Cool) for reference NC30 and I chose W4
blended beautifully, covered my acne scars really well and felt lightweight! that is the one thing I look for in a foundation.
good coverage but yet still light-feeling
this foundation had it all.
but it broke me out :( badly
very unfortunate. probably would've been HG material if I didn't get such nasty pimples from it.
I am an NC35 and I bought the W4 color from this line. The color really is a true match to my golden/yellow undertone skin. It blends really well on my skin and the longevity of the foundation is great when i set it with a powder. The only thing i dont like about this product is a packaging. I prefer a pump foundation but this one will have to do :)
Surprisingly, I gave this another shot. When I tried it before, I hated it. I realized it was more about the skincare I was using, and not the foundation. Since my skin is not as oily, this works very well. I have combo skin, so I pair this with the corresponding powder. I have the color N2 (I'm MAC NC20, for what it's worth). It matches pretty well, but it's a SMIDGE too pink. It wouldn't be noticeable to anybody but me. It's not the foundation's fault, I'm a weird color. I will say that the neutrals lean more pink/peach than yellow/beige. I don't wear this with primer, and I don't have to blot until after lunch. It covers my pores, blends extremely well, and doesn't feel or look heavy. I got this and the powder for $14 on BOGO. It actually looks like skin. It's impressive for a drugstore foundation. In fact, it's the best one I've tried. I will repurchase, but maybe in W2 next time :)
This foundation USED to be a staple of mine quite a few years ago. Then--as my skin matured, I started using high-end foundations. However, my daughter used this when she lived at home. OK..so about a month ago, I was cleaning out her stuff and came across a full bottle of this that she left home. It was the same "color" that I used C-3. Now--let me explain what made me start using this again. I purchased one of those blendy-sponges and noticed that I was using a bit more foundation with the sponge and I didn't want to waste the high end stuff. So anyway, I figured I would give it a go. Again. WOW! Why was a being such a foundation snob? After using this with the blendy sponge, I was really happy with how dewy this foundation looked on my dry skin. Amazed, in fact. I forgot about how great this foundation was--it DOES NOT OXIDIZE!!! And at less than ten bucks at my local Wegman's, what a steal! The blending is great--doesn't cake up--and I'll tell you, over the primer, it is smooth and silky. It's nice when you re-discover an item--especially one that will save tons of money.
High end foundations shove over, I went back to my little drugstore brand and am now happy I'm back!
Seriously--especially for "older and more mature" skin--try this...use one of those blendy sponges...it really makes a difference. I think you will be pleasantly surprised--and the savings mean more $$ for shoes!
I like this foundation. But it is so hard to find your perfect shade. I use mac nc40. I bought n4 buff beige and w7 caramel but they are not my shades. I think I will be a W6 sun beige because it has yellow undertones. idk. I like the coverage it gives me.
