This product is definitely one of my no-no product in the list. The mousse caused my face feeling dry and it spreads unevenly throughout your face. Sometimes I could see uneven patch under my eye or my forehead. It is supposed to give a smooth finish but this product is just not doing its job. The packaging is a failure because I feel it is very unhygienic. It does not have a natural finish, even after you applied it, it is still very obvious on your face, plus, it caused break outs on my forehead and cheeks after I applied it. I would say this is my first and the last product I would use.
This product is just all wrong for me. I got this as my first foundation when I was a teenager. If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have gone through years of applying this to my face.
The pot is really unhygienic and dries out before you use up the product. I found that the formula dried around my nose and under my eyes in blotches. It was really evident that I was wearing foundation. I also didn't find the coverage adequate for pimples.
Color matching is strange. None of the colors matched, either too orange or pale white. It made my skin oily and caused break outs.
Nope, not using this one again.
This product was good for maybe the first few days, but then my face turned red and started to break out everywhere. I'm not talking about acne, I'm talking a full allergic reaction. It was just absolutely terrible, so terrible I had to go to the doctor and get medicine to fix it. My skin is oily, sensitive, and acne-prone. The reason why I said this product was good at first - is because it minimized my oil and covered all of my imperfections perfectly. Unfortunately, there was something that messed with my skin in the formula, meaning I had to stop using the product. If you don't have sensitive skin, then give it a try. It could work for some people, I'm sure. I hope this helped.
I used to use this when I was a teenager. At first I thought it was really great but then after a few uses it started to really really dry out my skin. I ended up looking flakey and orange in patches. I also got this in ivory to start because I couldn't find porcelain. When I did eventually get it in porcelain it was a darker shade than the ivory!
I used this product for YEARS. I really enjoyed, but one major flaw I saw in this product is that it is not photo friendly. After working in cosmetics, you discover that some foundations are not photo friendly and they will get a reputation for it. This simply means that the makeup does not photograph well, I know it seems trivial, but if you have a special event and you're wearing a foundation that does this, your complexion will look off in photos. It's almost like the flash goes right through the foundation coverage. With that being said, I think this product is ideal for a more oily skin, it is a bit drying and if your skin is very dry, the makeup won't set well.
I am around the shade NW45 and I bought the Caramel 02 shade. The colour seemed to be a good match for me and it has a very yellow undertone to it. This foundation seems to be the only foundation I've used so far that doesn't melt on my face at all even if I use my coconut oil underneath, I think it lasts around 6-8 if not sweating constantly or have a fast paced job. There is a slight smell to it but nothing that would linger on the skin. So far, I like this product since it has some good coverage and can be layered so that you can achieve a full coverage effect while still looking quite natural (though if full coverage people can tell you have foundation on), as I am a guy and with pigmentation and acne this is really good if you want that no makeup makeup look :) The finish is of course matte and only becomes a slight bit not shiny but skinlike after around 3 hours. This can be used as a concealer over the foundation as well. Also, little of the product is needed to provide good coverage as the more you buff it in the more coverage you get while it also gives a natural finish.
brought this foundation today and absolutely love it so far!
i got it in the lightest shade, 004 light porcelain as i have very fair skin and i thought it looked a little orangey and darker than it should have been in the pot but i was pleasantly surprised when i put it in my face as it was almost a perfect match to my skin colour, and not orangey at all. the texture of this foundation is lovely, as i find some liquid foundations a bit heavy this mouse foundation was perfect. i would say it gave medium coverage, but can easily be built up. i put on quite a light layer and all my small spots/blemishes were covered, but i would say if i built it up a bit and used more, it would cover my bigger spots also. i put a light moisturizer on first to stop it caking up and i would recommend to everyone to do this as i did not cake up at all!
Probably my third jar over the years.
I love this product, and although I can not use it throughout most of the year, I blame my extremely dry and sensitive skin. Will work wonders with slightly oily skin.
The product is very affordable and provides a great full coverage which lasts throughout the day.
My skin is very fair and I wear porcelain with top brands, yet I am in love with the sand shade of this foundation- blends with my skin and provides a sun kissed look.
I wear this foundation during the summer months as I find my skin most hydrated then. Friends wear darker shades, can work as a great affordable bronzer.
Lovely glass packaging, easy finger application due to mousse texture. Will repurchase.
It does give good coverage but it's a bit too cakey for me.
It goes all dry and weird around my nose and chin, separates completely. It does give me decent coverage and is super easy to apply, but it's just not nice. The pots really don't last that long before they go gross and impossible to apply, and I just can't find the right shade for me. All their pale colours are too cold and rosy for my olive skin. The only decent olive colour is nude and that's just bright orange!
hate. do not recommend.
