I bought this foundation for formal and found i had to spend ages applying it to get it to look good but since then i've started using it with my beauty blender i love it! It covers imperfections, looks natural and makes my complexion look flawless. The packaging is awful, comes in a bottle that takes ages to get the actual foundation out of. The price isnt cheap but is average
I give this a 4, but it is more like a 3.8
I go to this foundation for more formal occasions, mainly because it has a full coverage finish which I don't really like for everyday use.
Sometimes, if i'm feeling like looking a bit more made up for work, I will wear this, mainly because it does have fantastic lasting power. But I find that it drys quickly so it's a little more high maintenance in the morning to apply. I start work at my office at 7.30, so I prefer something which I can slap on, rub in, and go :)
It's a bit pricey where I live for what it's worth ($40 USD) - but I will definitely be restocking when I hit the states in June :D
Other than that, it's still my go - to full coverage long lasting foundation, but saying that, it's not my "HG" foundation
However, It's definitley greater than Mac's Studio Fix Fluid in my opinion. It smells slightly better, lasts longer and the color range for pale - skinned women is more complimentary.
I bought this after reading all the reviews and thinking yeah, the combination oily skin type would probably suit me, but I'm really disappointed ! At first I was applying with a brush, which left me with streaks no matter how well I buffed and blended!! Then after talking to a friend I tried using my fingers and that worked so so so much better. I don't hate colour stay anymore, but I doubt ill repurchase! It looks really nice when you first put it on and it stays on but goes oily and some patches do fade, so I feel don't really feel like its worth $30! I also feel like I have to build it up a lot because its sort of transparent
My favorite foundation hands down. It's my HG. Covers up acne scars without looking cakey. I use the formula for combination skin and it's very nice. It never makes me break out and doesn't make my dry patches look flakey. The only problems I have with it are 1) The packaging really just sucks. It could use a pump. And 2) They do not have a fair shade with a more neutral or warm undertone. It's a bit too pink for me. Overall a great foundation.
I went to try this out recently as I am on a budget at the moment & was after a decent slightly cheaper foundation then my current (Mac studio scuplt). So after hearing all the hype online I thought this would hopefully do the job, but I was wrong. I was really bummed it didnt work for me tbh after all the good reviews. I swatched quite a few shades before choosing my "colour" but I simply could not find a match or anything near. All of the shades appeared pinky grey when I applied them, I even tried a few different places but nope. It just kind of sat on my skin, it just didnt work. I was also surprised at the price,im in Aust & it was priced at $39.99! So for an extra $10 I could just stick to my studio sculpt...
As said I have seen many people wearing this foundation & it looks great,it just didnt work for me. continued >>
I found that this liquid makeup didn't work well on my skin. One of the things I noticed was that it contained certain allergens that don't help my acne-prone skin.
I have dry skin but however they did not have the normal-dry skin formula in store so I bought the combination-oily skin and surprisingly it does not accentuation my dry patches at all unless it is extremely dry where it will cling a bit. The coverage is full and is buildable. A little goes a long way! The reason why I rate it a 4 is because the packaging is horrible and wastes so much product and it costs $50NZD! Overall great product I would definitely repurchase
LOVE this foundation. It matches me perfectly, covers everything, keeps me matte all day, and just looks terrific! Buy this foundation and give it a try. You will loooove it!
Thick and dry really fast . Smells like paint .. Berk. Excellent coverage, stay on for hours, but made me break out :( Maybe will it work for those who don't have as sensitive skin as i do !
I think this is one of the best long-wear drugstore foundations, its matte, long lasting and medium/full coverage depending on how you apply it.
The reason I didnt give it an overall rating of 5 is because I couldnt find a shade that matched my skin perfectly. We dont get a wide colour range here in the UK so I had to make do with mixing two different shades (sand beige and early tan). I'd have preferred if it was more yellow toned, as I found it a bit beige for my skin but it wasnt too bad an issue.
I really love this foundation, I love the matte finish, and some people complain about the smell but I have to say I quite like it.
I have combination skin and I must say it last rather well, but you do have to powder your face on warm days. That is a cross us combination/oily skinned people must bear...
As for the packaging, I would have loved it if it came with a pump, but I dont mind the open top too much.
Overall I love this foundation, if you like a nice full coverage foundation that lasts pretty well, you cant go wrong with this one :-)
