I bought this a while back just for something different, it sounded appealing - an airbrushed complexion that looks good in any light - who wouldnt want that?? But it was rather disappointing. All was fine at first, liquid was a nice consistency, wasnt drying on the skin, and didnt even notice the so called 'shimmers' in it, i set it with a bit of powder and it was fine. However, after a few hours, the colour seems to change & made me look really pale and washed out. Also does not last a very long time.
On the plus side - the pump was a great idea, theres a good choice of shades and no yucky smell. Buuutt... after seeing my complexion after a few hours, how awful it looked, the bad outweighs the good. Does not give a 'photoready' effect at all.
I go back and forth on this foundation depending on the day and I HATE that
some days I LOVE it and some days I swear I wash my face and start over
the sparkles are usually too much for daytime
I ADORE the pump I wish all drugstore foundations came with a pump that nice
the coverage is okay light to medium I'd say, although I don't know if anyone notices any blemishes when you wear it because they are literally blinded by glitter... :-/
kidding, but not really. idk
glad I tried it and got it out of my system but I don't see how someone could wear this every day DURING the day
I actually really like this foundation a lot! It works well with my combination skin. I did not notice TONS of shimmer in it as a lot of other people have. the only problem is when I snuggle with my b/f i look at his face after and notice theshimmer.. so it definately is there and if you hate shimmer I'd say dont buy this. It provided full coverage for me and lasted much longer than I expected. The only problem is in the summer or anytime its warmer if your face gets warm the foundation can easily come off. I'd find traces of it on my hands. So I would definately NOT wear this if you live in a warmer climate or in the summer. I am definately going to give it another go this winter though becasue I love the way it looks on my skin. I got lovely comments from people ofhow great my skin looked while I was wearing this so it's definately doing sometihng good.
This is the ONLY cover-up I have ever bought that actually fits my skin colour. Mind you, I've tried Mac, Nars, Too Faced, Almay, Makeup Forever... You name it.
It feels light and looks great when you're taking pictures. I will religiously continue to use this product.
I originally bought this in color rich ginger. I am around an NC42-44. It was way too light and the sparkles showed up a lot. I then decided that I hated this foundation. But then I purchased the caramel color a few months later and it matched me pretty well. It has a smooth texture and blends well. It has medium to full coverage. Full coverage if you apply a couple of layers. It has pretty good staying power but I always use a primer. The sparkles do show if you are in the sun even though I apply setting powder over it. So I wear it only at night or when its cloudy lol. This is the only downside to this foundation. I really wish they would make it without the sparkles. Then I would rate it a 5.
i find that i'm pretty iffy with this product. at first, i really loved it. it made my skin look near flawless & it lasted all day. i switched to using just bare minerals for about 3 months, & now i'm looking to up my foundation coverage. i decided to use this again because of how well it worked before...and now i just look gross. it goes on blotchy & thick, even though my application technique hasn't changed. also, when paired with the photoready powder, it made my skin look even worse. :( bummer, i really liked this stuff.
I have to say, I'm really surprised by the bad reviews. I didn't have any problems with shimmer or sparkles- the foundation just looks glowy on my skin, and I'm super oily. I love how creamy it is, it's very easy to apply with my fingers, a sponge, or my stippling brush. I dust some finishing powder over it and it makes my skin look healthy and gorgeous. I'm pretty fair and I wear the second lightest shade- 002 Vanilla. I might try the lightest shade when winter hits.
As everyone has said, the packaging is ace- all foundations should have pumps!
I was surprised that I really liked this product. It covered all my imperfections & once I applied it, I couldn't see any shimmer at all. I set it with the Photoready Revlon Powder & my skin looked flawless. I have Normal skin on my T-zone & Dry sometimes flaky skin everywhere else, with visible pores on my cheeks. I also love the packaging.
goes on nicely but it's too shimmery and i'm pretty sure the shimmer clogs my pores hence why i always break out after wearing it so i wouldn't buy it again but the pump bottle's awesome and i think every foundation should come in a pump bottle.
OK. I'm one of the oldies reviewing this. Even at my age, I have oily sking.
This was a bit greasy for me so I did not use it anymore.
I do like the acompanying powder
