This would be a great foundation if it weren't so yellow. I think very fair skin tones will find this to be an impossible match. I am more light, not fair, and the lightest shade (new ivory) is almost too dark, but that is probably because it is very yellow. If you are cool toned (pinky undertones) this will not work for you. It is very unfortunate because I was looking for an everyday foundation. I am accustomed to my MUFE HD foundation but needed something less expensive for everyday use. I guess I will need to keep looking :(

HELLO holy grail foundation! I have never, ever, ever, ever, ever used a more perfect foundation than this one (knock on wood). I don't have enough amazing things to say about this product. Loves it. The number one thing I look for in a foundation is acne control. I mean, not that in *controls* my acne necessarily, but it doesn't make me break out at all. May I repeat: AT. ALL. I have my hormonal shit from time to time, yes, but even then I've been seeing much improvement in my skin's texture. Also, this foundation in itself has been acne-free for me. I have never used a foundation that has kept me from breaking out albeit a tiny bit. And as college student who has been battling acne for most of her teen years (and now her twenties, unfortunately), this is a huge, huge deal.The color range isn't diverse, but I'm going to be selfish right now and let ya'll know that I've found my perfect match regardless. It's weird because I'm an NC20, but blonde (the Boots shade and one which is relatively dark for a pale-skinned like yours truly) has been suiting me well. It doesn't match my face but it does my chest, and it makes my skin tone look much more even.The finish is absolutely stunning. Like many have mentioned, not necessarily matte or dewy. More like a silky finish -- a combination of both. It's medium and buildable (which I most definitely need) and does not look cakey. I do, however, use concealer for the darker blemishes. Yes, this product has dimethicone in it, but last time I checked it's nothing to go haywire about. And because it has dimethicone I've also stopped using primer underneath my foundation. In fact, I do dare say you do not need to use primer with this foundation. The product itself blurs out your pores (in my opinion, it works great with one of those HD powder, whether it be MUFE or ELF), evens your skin tone, and stays on for an incredible amount of time (all without a primer). I leave my apartment at 8am in the morning, go to work, and go to classes. I blot my t-zone with a tissue maybe once or twice throughout the day (the consequences of having oily skin) but that's about it. I come back at 8pm and, voila, my skin still looks great. Impressed? I am. Most definitely.If you can, go buy it. At least try it out. Your face will thank you.

I was actually considering not getting this because at 11 kinds of foundation who really needs more? But I'm very glad I did and I haven't used anything else since. I agree with other posters that their shades aren't light enough.. The color is ever so slightly off, but for me it's not very noticeable so I'm not too bothered. I'm not bothered because this stuff looks and feels amazing on your skin. The classy glass pump bottle dispenses enough for your entire face basically, and it glides on like a dream. The coverage is medium to full I would say, and it covers very naturally. It manages to smooth over my humungous pores without feeling heavy or silicone-y (I hate 'cones!). I have fairly oily, acne-prone skin and this has not made me break out. I'm also on Retin A for my acne and my face peels intensely ever other day -- this stuff doesn't accentuate is as much as others. In fact, it helps to smooth over the rough patches. This stuff makes your face smooth and fresh looking even if its not. My HG used to be Nars SG but now I can get better results with a foundation that costs $30 less. Win!

Coverage is medium and buildable, formula feels nice, though a little dry, even for my oily skin. The color range is terrible. I tried New Ivory in the store, which was slightly too dark and yellow for my NC15 skin, so I purchased Porcelain online assuming that it would be light enough. Oddly, I don't find the color much different from the New Ivory. It's still slightly too dark and too yellow. As far as the skin benefits go, I haven't noticed any. In fact, I start developing small, white bumps on my jawline shortly after application. This is a no-go for me. For those with light-medium, yellow-based skin, this could potentially be a HG foundation. Just not for me.

This foundation is really great during the winter! It feels great on my super dry and demanding skin during the winter. It glides on smoothly, smells quite nice, doesn't feel or look heavy, and very buildable. Not to shabby..i'd purchase again, but knowing how my skin changes so drasticly to the weather, I'd probably have to wait until I run out, since I get so oily during the summer. Lifting and firming? I don't really feel like it does anything of that sort, but I don't really mind because it feels good and its worth the money I purchased it for. Hope this helps. Happy Holidays!

*ROP for pics*I needed a foundation for winter, the only time my skin is somewhat dry and I decided to pick this foundation up because of the good reviews. I am pleasantly surprised by the quality of this and I love the polished glow it gives me.Shade: It was trial-and error when I searched for the right shade. I'm in the NC30 range, and I read that many NC30-35 ladies were matched perfectly to "Vanilla." After swatching Vanilla at Target, the color seemed right but the undertone was not as yellow as I had hoped. It was not pink, but more beige than yellow. "Nude" had a wonderful yellow undertone but it was too light for my skin, so I chose the inbetween shade "Blonde," which happened to be a much closer undertone match to my skin than Vanilla while still remaining in the same shade range. It definitely has a yellow undertone, but I wish it were slightly more yellow.For reference, I wear:-MAC NC30-NARS Sheer Glow in Punjab (best color match I've found so far)-MUFE HD in 127-Chanel Pro Lumiere in Shell 30Medium golden skin with strong yellow undertones.Coverage: Medium, covers flaws and redness but still allows skin to show through. Similar coverage as NARS Sheer Glow, Chanel Pro Lumiere, and MUFE HD. Gives a more polished, clean, glowy look to your real skin. Can be sheered out with damp brush or sponge.Finish: Definitely satin, but on the dewy side of satin. Not too dewy that my face looks shiny or oily, but it does provide a very nice glow. Looks clean on the face and extremely smooth. No oil control problems here.Feel: Moisturizing and very smooth, does not dry out my skin or emphasize flakiness, feels light. This product has dimethicone in it, which may explain the velvety feel and finish. Cones tend to break me out badly, but I have experienced zero breakouts from this foundation. I have not had any bad reactions to the ingredients.Texture: Not very liquidy or runny but not too thick. Texture is similar to MUFE HD. I find that this blends better with a brush than with fingers.Packaging: I am blown away by the quality of the packaging. It comes in a heavy-feeling glass bottle and includes a pump! Really sophisticated packaging.. reminds me of Chanel foundations. The only thing I don't like it that you need to put quite a bit of pressure on the cap to take it off or put it back on.Price: $14.99 for a 1 oz. bottleOverall: I would have to agree with many of the Makeupalley reviews in that Boots L&F is a department store quality foundation at a drugstore price. It looks and feels wonderful on my skin and doesn't feel caked on or thick. It feels like soft, smooth skin. I would say that overall, this foundation is extremely comparable to Chanel Pro Lumiere, another one of my favorites, except that it has much better oil control. My skin appears satiny, glowy, and fresh. I would recommend you check out your local Target (especially all you ladies out there with yellow undertones!) and see if they have any testers like mine did. Some locations do and some don't. I am happy to confirm that this is a new winter favorite and will be a new part of my foundation rotation. I am interested in seeing how this foundation holds up in warmer weather."Blonde" swatch: http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_njIq7zhTskc/TRK5Xi7lXLI/AAAAAAAAALU/CmTGZvfaLaI/s1600/boots2.jpgglowy finish: http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_njIq7zhTskc/TRK4N2C3Q8I/AAAAAAAAALE/XQWVWYkxIuY/s1600/finish.jpg continued >>

I am 39, and I don't normally wear foundation. I find that it usually feels too thick and unnatural. That being said, sometimes I do reach for a bottle to make me feel polished and look finished- this is seriously HG. I don't know about the lifting or firming, but the feel is very high-end and -dare I say it- luxurious. Color selection is limited, but if you find a color that works for you- I say try it. The finish is medium, and a bit "dewy", but not greasy. One pump does my entire face, and it blends beautifully.

This is by far the best drug store foundation I have found, in fact I like it better then alot of high end foundations! I have oily skin that is prone to clogged pores and have no issues with this breaking me out at all. The finish is nice and natural looking, never cakey or mask like on me(which I can't stand) I like a medium coverage and this is perfect..I blot less often while using this, so I think it may be helping control the oil..but it's not dry or to matte for winter at all. Love the pump dispenser. The only draw back I can find is the shade selection is not great..but I was able to find a good match (Blond..I'm about NW25/30ish, estee lauder shell beige) It really tones down the redness in my face but still looks natural..It really rivals my all time HG Estee Lauder doublewear...I have been alternating between these too, but think I might just stick with this when I run out of my doublewear since this is half the price..Great foundation!

Oh my god, I love this stuff. I thought my HG d/s foundation was the L'Oreal Visible Lift with Serum foundation but this is so much better. L'O VL was looking a little too pink for me lately, so rather than getting another bottle in a different color I took a chance and got this one because of the reviews here.It was a little difficult to find a color match because Target didn't have testers, so I opened like 4 boxes trying to decide which was the best one. The frosted glass makes it hard to tell what the actual color is so I had to swatch everything. I ended up getting New Ivory and it matches really well, it's not too yellow or too pink, just beige which is good for me. They didn't have too many shades at this Target, so I'm not sure how easy it would be for people to color match.At first I thought the formula was a little too liquid-y but I got around that by trying different applications. I prefer a more full coverage because I have acne scars and redness, so I apply this in two layers: once just a quick sweep all over my face with a sponge, then another stippled into the problem areas. The coverage is very good, doesn't cake up or look splotchy, and this stuff doesn't budge throughout the day. I had a bad day last week where I was crying on and off, wiping my face and whatnot, and my makeup looked good all day.The packaging is excellent, lord knows we all love a pump. I didn't buy this for the lifting and firming uses so I can't say how it holds up there. I like that it has an SPF. The price is a little on the high side for d/s but I really think it's worth it, I would buy this again. My new favorite d/s foundation right here.

UPDATE: hugeeee bummer!!! this fdtn is breaking me out :-( i'm so sad..guess it was too good to be true..i wear full bangs so i don't use any fdtn on my forehead..sure enough my forehead is clear and every place i put this fdtn is totally clogged..blackhead central!! boo!!WOW..this is def a keeper!! To begin, I am about a NC20, in Colorstay i'm Buff, in MUFE F&B i'm Ivory, in MUFE HD i'm 117/118. In this lovely fdtn i'm New Ivory and it is a PERFECT match!!! even better than colorstay buff which i didn't think was possible to get a closer match than buff. okay, so i absolutely love the finish of MUFE F&B. slightly dewy, medium coverage..unfortunately the color match wasn't as perfect as i like, and it just doesn't stay on no matter what finishing powder i use. and then there's colorstay: the color buff is gorgeous and overall i do really like this fdtn but it is just TOO heavy for everyday use imo..*enter this little gem* lifting and firming is EVERYTHING i look for in a fdtn!! Perfect color match, perfect dewy, youthful finish, perfect medium coverage, AND (yes there is an and) it LASTS!!! i don't even use a powder to set b/c i don't want to ruin the PERFECT finish and even still, it LASTS ALL DAY!! in order to reach HG status it has to not cause any clogs or breakouts and i've only been using it for a week, so i promise to update if it wrecks havoc on my skin. but for now, i'm in LOVE.
