I love the squeeze packaging. The price is $14.00 which is cheap for me compared to $34.00. Yellow base which I need to cover redness and lasts all day. Mycolor is 302 and will repurchase. Also, has a matte finish. I actually mixed it with my Double Wear for a porcelain matte look.
I really like this foundation. It gives nice natural coverage, and a soft matte finish. The color selection is good, and I'm glad they make a shade light enough for my fair yellow toned skin, I use shade Ivory 100. I do wear a foundation primer under this, and it works great. I apply this foundation with a sponge, which works best for me. It tends to get a little cakey if I apply it with my fingers, and its consistency is too thick to use a foundation brush, but the sponge works perfect! I hope they do not discontinue this foundation, like they did my Dual Coverage Powder Foundation (which I used as my setting powder).
Update: I'm not crazy about this. It looks just ok with a great powder on top, but the foundation itself separates after a while on your skin. I took away a lippie for this. It's still ok, better than drug store makeup, but I love Mary Kay's new Matte Wear Foundation MUCH better than this!
I do like the consistency of this foundation, and the medium coverage.. it's good for everyday, the color is natural. The tube is the best packaging in my opinion.. I like to get tiny little dabs to pat around my eye, and this tube is perfect for small amounts at a time.
Though it says medium coverage, it has pretty good coverage. I used it as a concealer instead of foundation. I am a NC/NW20 and ivory 100 actually works well for me. I really liked the coverage of this foundation, but it broke me out so I voted not to purchase the product again. great for those who want more coverage with a decently priced foundation ($15).
Hope this helps!
So far I use this foundation daily because its better than most the ones I have.
Pros: ok coverage, don't need to use a lot, blends well
Cons: too matte, not enough coverage, color selection not light enough, not 100% please with the overall finish.
I'll keep using it til I find better.
not that bad.
matte finish, Medium coverage as it says. they have a ton of tones.
looks almost cakey but no quite. the colour turns orangy after application
Well when I first purchased this product, it was too expensive compared to those in department stores. I used it around the summer time and it made my face oily. Hence I stopped using it but once winter came, it was good since my skin becomes really dry when winter comes. This foundation lasts me about the entire day so I dont need to reapply it. It is best to moisturize alot during the winter before applying this. It's very light and it didnt give me acne. I would probably buy it again if it wasnt so expensive.
Went to a "Mary Kay Party", which is where a person holds a social gathering, and a Mary Kay consultant comes and introduces the different lines of products to everyone. She/he will normally give out samples and will let everyone try the different products.
I was really hopeful when I got to try this foundation. It appeared to have matched my Eurasian skin (MAC NC20/25- even though those are too yellow) quite well, and it felt quite light and gave good coverage. Sadly, I was wrong. I should have tried it in a different light/day light, as when I received my order 2 weeks later, I saw that it was way too dark for me. And when I tried it at home, I also noticed that it was heavier and more "yucky" than when I tried it at the Mary Kay party.
It comes in a 30ml/1oz. tube, which makes it easy to squeeze the product out, and it's hygenic, but all in all, I'm quite disappointed. I guess the search for my HG foundation continues.
I will not be repurchasing this product and I will not recommend this to others.
Best foundation that I tried so far.. I have an oily acne prone skin and this foundation is very light....so far no acne and it kept my face fresh and oil free for long hours. You don't have to reapply! I always used the full coverage foundation but this one does the job!
I know a girl who wears Mary Kay foundation, and her skin is flawless - so I wanted to try this foundation. I ordered it in the lightest colour, Ivory 100, and tried it out.
- Soft to touch
- Good coverage
- Not much product is needed
- Too orangey for my skin; I like the porcelain look, but it gave me a bit of a tan, definitely a no-no
- Also, the oil-control is great and matte for a while, but by the end of the school day, it's looks like a greasy mess - yech
