I'm 32 and have normal/dry skin. I bought this in shades 100 and 200 which I mix to come up with the perfect shade for my visage.
I usually go for more expensive foundations but this one can stand next to the best department store/ boutique ones. The mix of peptides and nutrients plump and revitalize my skin, and silicone makes it look dewy and healthy all day long. I love that the coverage is actually pretty good for being such a liquid-y foundation. The pump is nice and works well. Got it on sale, but it is worth the full price. Will repurchase.

I had 7 foundations in my makeup drawer when I felt the magnet pull to the 50% off signs on the Lumene display at CVS. As it turns out, #8 is a winner, and my new fave! Lovely coverage...conceals the bit of sun damage on the side of my face perfectly, but doesn't look at all heavy. The texture is smooth and feels great on my face. My skin is on the dry side, and this time of year I need moisturizing makeup. Unfortunately there are not a lot of color choices...I chose the lightest shade for my light skin with yellow undertones and was lucky, as it blends perfectly. Normally, I would go for the next darkest shade, but could tell this ran a bit darker than other foundations.
At $19.99, it's not cheap, but it's excellent quality for a drug store brand. It has SPF 20 and contains peptides, so I feel like I'm getting more bang for the buck (watch for it at CVS @ 50% off). HIghly recommended!

The lightest shade in this was too dark for me. Runs a lot darker than the lighest shade of the Time Freeze foundation. Be warned!

I saw this new Lumene liquid foundation at CVS recently, and noticed that it is targeted at women over 50. I chose color 200 which was the next-to-the-lightest shade. The foundation comes in an elegant frosted glass bottle with a nice pump and clear overcap. The sunscreen is spf 20 and is a combination of oxycinate and titanium dioxide. The ingredients list plenty of 'cones, but that didn't worry me, and it isn't oil-free, which pleased me. There are some interesting herbal extracts and peptides. It all sounded wonderful. I brought it home and tested it out. I had chosen the perfect match to my NW20 skin. The foundation smoothed on like silk, gave a medium coverage -- just enough to hide the freckles but not too much so as to look thick. I loved the comfort and the texture. At first it appeared to look just fine, and then it darkened into a very weird orangey shade. So I removed it, put on some serum and my Borghese primer under it, and tried again. At first it matched perfectly, but it did darken again. Other than this weird darkening, it was a nice, comfy, dewy finish, when I used the serum and the primer. I don't usually have problems with my foundations changing color on me -- the only other one that did this was the Dior Capture -- but it's a problem that people should know about before trying. I like the fact that this foundation was designed for mature skin, but I'm disappointed that it changed color. I returned the 200 shade for the next lightest one, which happens to be the lightest shade that was offered. I'm glad I did. Ordinarily this would be too pale for me, but since I already knew that it would darken a bit when it was on my face, I brought it home. The shade is 100 and now I have a perfect match! After it darkened it matched my skin beautifully, stayed on all day, remained dewy and glowing, and felt comfortable. Visually, it is glowing, luminizing and looks like candlelight! Beautiful!!! This foundation runs about $20 at some but not all CVS stores. That's a high price point for a drugstore foundation, but there are almost no drugstore foundations for seriously dry skin, and it's nice to see that there's at least one, and it is of very fine quality. I would buy it again.
