Light coverage. I can't use only this as a foundation because it's not full coverage enough, I mix it with my revlon colorstay and it gives that flawless look. Perfect when worn alone for younger girls that just want to look fresh and even out skintone a bit. It slips & does not last all day for me alone, (but it does when mixed with my colorstay) and I have normal skin/leaning more towards dry. You can't beat the price, especially if you have coupons/ buy one get one sales at the drugstore. I would definitely repurchase.
I think it best to compare this to a tinted moisturizer- sheer to light coverage, non-buildable formula and "dewey" finish. Alas, it seems to be marketed to those with younger skins who will find it separates on and slips from their faces. For a more mature skin that needs a little evening out, this is a decent choice.
The odor is odd.
I tried this out because of all the hype. I've been using it for about 5 months now, and feel that it really is pretty good for a drugstore foundation. It leaves a satin/dewy finish depending on your skin type; mine being combination erring on the oily side, I end up with a satin finish that gets oily in the t-zone throughout the day. The foundation really does leave a lovely, glowy, natural finish.. but it's not perfect. Blemishes and discoloration begin to peek through after a few hours, and it sort of oxidizes. That being said, I don't have perfect skin and I tend to have this problem even with my expensive foundations.. With a good concealer, this can work. Honestly, if you packaged it up and stamped a higher-end brands name on it, I would fall for it. This runs for less than what I spend on coffee in a day... you have nothing to lose by trying it out.
This fdtn is super dewy! And stupid me, I didnt do my research so I was not happy when I found out how dewy this was. It has a light - medium coverage. Not very buildable. I am in honey beige (220) which has strong yellow undertones. the color matches me perfectly which is why i didnt give it the lowest rating but the yellowness makes me look so much yellower than i already am! It was just way too yellow. and since i have combo skin, it made my face a greasy ball by the end of the day, even though i used a setting powder. and i have this problem with fdtns always transferring onto my phone when i talk on my phone and its gross. it very watery so it blends well and i suggest this only for dry skinned ppl. i like the packaging tho, however, theres no freakin pump so it gets messy :(
The worst foundation I have ever used, (and I am including my original most hated foundation, the Cover girl Clean Oil Control) Within the hour it had separated and sunk into my pores. I put this on at 11AM, it's 1:15 PM now and I've already had to reapply my foundation twice. It's horrific. I'm very glad I got this on sale for 5 bucks, even though it is worth far less than that.
The coverage at first is light to medium. But after 30 minutes it separates on the skin, sinking into ever single pore you never knew you had. Even if you do not have oily skin like mine, I see this making dry faces look like huge grease pits. Because of their claim of clear gel and pigment only (I think that's what the commercial said, may be wrong) and the fact that there is no pump, this stuff pours out like water. I hardly even had to shake it a few times before it dumped out all over the back of my hand.
Save your money and buy something else. The Maybelline Dream Liquid foundation is way way way better compared to this utter crap.
At first I was so happy to try this product on. I bought it in the shade 220 from my local rite aid. I put it on before school it looked so flawless and beautiful. An hour later my face looked like a disgusting GREASE BALL. It started separating and getting cakey and blochy. I was going to cry from how ugly it looked. My hands slid off my face thats how oily it was. I threw it out the second I got home. Its nasty!!! Save your money and buy a better foundation please
This foundation makes me sad. It looked so so good when first applied; awesome coverage (I would say medium/lightish), could be built up super easily with no caking, went on nice and smooth, but alas... after alittle bit it started sinking into pores, sperating and getting awfully shiny awfully quick. I still have the bottle so I think I'll just try mixing alittle bit in with my other foundation each day to use it up, maybe together with something else it might stick together alittle better. But yeah, lame, especally considering the price is cheap too, I was getting alittle too excited there, haha!
Dont buy this !even though it was only $5.99 [ probably cause its that horrible] it made me break out . it made me look chalky and cakey even with a good foundation brush. & the smell was really unusual. it dried up really quickly & made it look like paste. i felt like i had a thin mask of paste on. this product really dissapointed me, but i was able to use it as an OK concealer .
I would love to like this makeup enough to buy it again...but I don't. Although I don't look greasy at all, like some other users, I didn't have a great experience either.
Pros: Less than $6 at Target. Found my perfect foundation color (the lightest shade) which is really rare. The bottle is pretty. It doesn't dry out my skin at all or settle into my smile lines or dry patches.
Cons: What's with the smell? It smells like floral perfume, and the smell does not fade throughout the day. It's not easily blendable and is very light coverage, so my red cheeks were still visible. After a few minutes it slides right off my face. I can't touch my face at all or there will be a spot of make up missing.
I might buy the matching powder to see if that helps, but my regular powder didn't work at all.
OMG grease central! Wow this is horrible!! The commercial sold me, how it let's your skin "breathe" while still offering full and blendable coverage.
It might let the skin breathe, but the skin is breathing 100% greasy disgusting oily make-up! As soon as I put this on, it was like so slick and looked so gross, I was like "maybe it needs time to set." Haha that was optimistic! It just looked gross all day. It made me look like a hot mess.
And don't touch your face while you wear this make-up, or it will get all over your hands and fingers like a disgusting lotion. It's a very thin formula, very watery, and it provides MINIMAL coverage at best. I put it over a blemish I had and it was like there was nothing on it, I might as well have not worn anything. It would take a hundred coats of this stuff to cover any imperfections, and even then I'm not so sure! Even with concealer, it looks awful and cheap and greasy.
The only pro this foundation has is the bottle it comes in! It looks sleek and expensive. Too bad it's a facade, I had higher hopes.
