Finally found a good foundation! Yes, it's a little pricy - 50$. But it works very well! I'm the lightest shade and it covers almost everything. Make sure you wash your face and use moisturizer to be able to apply the foundation evenly.
It feels lightweight, I can' t tell I'm wearing any foundation. Plus, it goes on naturally, it doesn't feel or look cakey.
I don't seem to be using much of the bottle, with the help of my Sephora foundation brush. So hopefully the price will seem like a lot less if I only have to buy my next bottle in a few months!
I have been using this foundation for over a year and it is my favorite! It blends like a dream, is very forgiving if your skin is between shades, and 1-2 pumps is all you need to cover your face and neck. It's so pigmented and so light, it makes for the perfect canvas...but you can still see your skin, if that makes sense.
The color match is great and I love the pump. I prefer the mat velvet but this with a stippling brush does look really good. for reference I am a 177.
So upon reading all the reviews, I simply had to try this product. I am quite impressed. This is the most perfect color match I have found in a foundation. I am about a MAC 30, but sometimes their foundations run too yellow for me- and I am asian!!
The 120 was a perfect match in this. Gives a full, yet remarkable natural coverage. And I do love the pump with a cap packaging.
Loving this product- only wish it wasnt $40 a pop.
I tried a sample of this from Sephora and was matched with #125. The color matched wonderfully but unfortunately I hate this foundation.
I found it to be mask like or thick. I always apply moisturizer and primer beforehand. I tried using less product, applying, blending it with a brush, sponge and my fingers. I still experienced the same. I returned this product to Sephora.
Everything that's great in a foundation:
- perfect color that looks like your real skin (for me, because I have yellow undertones even though I am fair)
- blendable satin gel texture
- stays true all day
- not oily, doesn't cause breakouts
- a little goes along way
- it's goof-proof
- it's not harsh, so i can even use it as undereye concealer (over my eye cream) on days when I don't wake up like a sleepless zombie
The price is also reasonable (under $50). I hope I can find 118 here in Switzerland or at Sephora in Milan!
I'm 120 Soft Sand (MAC NC25). I like this in combination with MAC prep & prime along with UD 24 set spray! continued >>
Love this product! I have redness in my face that I do not have on my neck. I bought this foundation in flesh since it has a beige undertone. It lets my natural skin show, while covering the unwanted redness. I did not believe there was a product like this out there, but I absolutely love this. Will buy again and again and again! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I received a sample of this at Sephora and liked the coverage a lot. Unfortunately the color was too dark but since I liked the sample enough, I will be purchasing it. Don't think it's HG status but I will update once I purchase a full bottle and get through some of it.
Update: I tried MAC's Face and Body which I liked much more than this. I will be purchasing that instead.
I hate to be a downer, I usually only write reviews about products I love, but this foundation did not work for me :(. I got matched at Sephora and it looked great in the store! I was so excited to wear it to class the next day, but when I looked at my face in the mirror at school, I was sooo upset! It looked like I had a pink, oily mask/layer on my skin I could probably just peel off! The color oxidized super pinky (not flattering on my already cool skin)...and it wasn't a glow or a dewy look, it was a complete oil slick (on my DRY skin). The finish to this foundation seemed like a cheap drugstore foundation to me. If the product wouldn't have been so expensive, I don't think I would have disliked it as much :(. It was very full coverage on me, and I prefer a light coverage. If you like a full coverage and can find your color match, it may be a great foundation for you! I sadly had to return the next day.
