This foundation really is one of the best that I have used. I am a BIG lover of Mac Cosmetics and swear by the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation. However, I always felt by the end of the day it had worn off making my face look awful! But this really lasts ! I would say its the same sort of coverage as SFF but the staying power is magnificent! Lasted a whole day at work and drinks after. I have an extremley oily t-zone and find that some foundations can slide off easily. But the specific areas didn't feel slippery or over oily. Fantastic product well worth the £22.00. Not bad at all for such a high quality product. Will definatley purchase again.
Ok, this is a freakin' great foundation. Coverage is medium - full depending on how you layer it; it is easy to blend; sets really well and looks natural. It would be my new HG, and is the best foundation I have ever used. BUT...the colours *sigh* i am NC15 in every other MAC foundation, and NC15 in this one is slightly pinker, which means it doesnt really match me *BUT* it doesnt look different enough for me not to try and make it work. Next time I will blend all the way down my neck and see if this makes a difference. If this foundation matched me perfectly, i would use it forever! (btw, there are no lighter colours). so, highly recommended, but be careful with the colours. Other than that, for my red, acne scarred uneven skintone, this foundation is awesome ( $54 AUD but will last forever). A+++++
Love this foundation. Looks great after 10 hours! Set it with prep + prime and iit looked great! Think I have found my HG foundation!
I love this foundation , I think I found my HG .Edit this foundation broke me out like crazy and made me look orange after a while.
This lasted for me like 10 hours without blotting. I do use a little bit of mineralize skinfinish natural on top of it and fix +. Loved the result, the texture and the bottle a lot. Definetely check this foundation out, you will not regret.
Skin type: Normal/ dry
I wore this foundation for about a week now. My skin has adapted to it great. No breakouts as I usually get one or two.
Finish: Sheer to medium coverage. Buildable but can look cakey so be aware that bcuz of the lasting power the ingredients can cause it to look heavy.
Color Selection is fab! 16 shades.
Lasting power- Although I don't wear my foundation longer then 8hrs htis foundation did not move.
Pictures- it does cast a white shadow due to the spf, but to the naked eye not very visible.
Overall- I give this foudation 2 thumbs up and will definately recommend it.

amazing!!!!!!!! i got it in NC40 and NW35 - i mix them to get perfect shade.
amazing coverage lasts all day - even though i have no skin flaws this just makes it look perfect and i get compliments whenever i wear it.
seems to moisturise the dry parts and control where i get slightly shiny(t-zone).
NW35 is a beautiful rich tanned colour not too pinky, and the NC40 is a very true oilve-yellow shade.
so mixed they are perfect for me.
lasted for over 18 hours on me, put on at 7 am in the morning before work and went to a club after work and got home in the small hours of the morning, still looking good! and still looked perfect and not heavy at all and keep very true to colour all day.
So this is what my experience has been after 2 consecutive days of wearing this fndn (which for me is usually enough to tell if I like or not)
Lasting power: I applied at 8 am and after 10/12 hrs it was still there. So it gets points for long wearing! I'm NC25 and the colour match is very good! (excellent match with the Concealer in NC20, which is FAB by the way) in daylight it looks much better, doesn't photograph very well though, I did a FOTD that I'll post later and the pic has a whitish cast, must be the SPF in it.
Application: I applied with the 130 brush, but I use the brush WET and I think that makes a huge difference with blending and finish, which was very nice, evened out skin tone, didn't look like a mask at all, blended well into skin (though you have to be quick to blend before it dries!). It doesn't look incredibly natural, but that's what TM is for! it is a fndn and it looks like fndn but in a good way. The finish is satin, matte with a sheen if that makes sense.
Coverage: medium/full but can be built to full. I used LESS than 1 pump and it covered my whole face nicely, however I do like a lighter application, I prefer to let some flaws shine through than have a mask.
Oil control: as far as oil control goes, bearing in mind I'm UBER oily, it didn't do such a good job, I'll see how it keeps performing but did have to blot the usual 3 times in 10 hrs, was oily after 3/4 hrs, if anything I felt even oilier? However I don't wear a primer, and I set with a light coat of Blot powder and I have to admit that it survived better than any other fndn the severe blotting sesh. Oil comes out on the blot sheet but no fndn in sight. Plus, when I DO start getting oily, it actually doesn't look that bad!
Break outs: I'm also very acne prone and usually liquid fndn breaks me out like instantly, this hasn't yet, but I'll have to report later on this! I'm crossing every finger available though hoping it won't break me out! However, I won't be wearing it everyday anyway cause I don't like to wear liquid that often.
Overall I really like it and even though the oil control is not great (-1 lippie) it looks very nice on and lasts forever, so a winner in my book!
I hate to be a buzz kill here but..Revlon still has this beat :/
My experience with this..I have tried applying it many different ways, stippling, sponge, foundation brush, full compact flat brush and it still came out the same way..sheer, streaky, and spotty. I had to layer this, which I do not like to do.
I went for a stroll with my son in hot humid weather and yes, this did stay on and didn't move, BUT it looked way cakey afterwards. ..and the worst is I think this is breaking me out since I never break out on my forehead.
I will most likely use this to mix in with my colorstay to get a bit more yellow color in it.
You will like this if: you don't need much coverage and want something that will stay on for a long time.
I really love this foundation. I was having issues with my other one and this seemed like it would solve my problems (face looked too shiny all day from oiliness - kept having to powder, makeup would transfer to my clothes, would come off quickly). This foundation stays put, does not look heavy, makes skin look even, doesn't transfer, and seems to control the oil. In the morning, I put this on, followed by the Pro Longwear concealer, and finish with the Select Sheer powder (using the 129 brush - not the one it comes with). If I do see any shine, I just use blot powder and it looks great.
