Color Clone Hydra-24H Foundation: This foundation seriously irritates my eyes, making them red and watery, and feels like my eyes are burning. Even if I leave a large area without foundation around the eyes, I can still feel the chemicals which emanate from the skin nearby and my eyes start to burn and become red and watery all day. People come to ask me if I am ok because I look as if I've been crying, and I have to explain that it is from this new foundation I just bought. I have never had this reaction to any other foundation/brand before... which is so odd! I am not an allergic person. I have tried to use it already some 4 or 5 times, but always get the same reaction. I am giving up and returning it to the store. The appearance is great, it is very light and you practically can't see that you have foundation on, perfect for a sunny outdoor use. Pity for the chemicals, though, they need to do serious testing on this formula... but not on animals, on humans!

I could not be more dissapointed with this product. I have used HR foundation samples before that would give me an absolutely gorgeous complexion (prodigy foundation), and after reading some good reviews of this foundation online, I thought I would give this 'less' expensive and not aimed at aged skin product a go.

Very, very sheer. So sheer even that my skin, that isn't bad at all with some very mild redness at my cheeks, would not be evened out the slightest. Even after 2 layers, it would make almost no difference compared to no foundation. And not just at the reddish parts, but everywhere.

Not only did it not cover anything, but while not covering anything it was still very visibly present. Very contradictory I know, but that's what I experienced! My face looked fake, something looked off, yet without any real coverage. Might be because of bad colour matching, but I have nr 20 vanilla, which normally should be perfect for my NC20 skin? I had to put a medium coverage foundation over my cheeks to make the reddish tone go away (24h stay of mayb NY).

I have only used it once now, but the instant let down made me do this review. I will ofcourse have more goes at it, try out if I can get it to work, but at the moment I am all but positive. Such waste of money.. A tinted moisturizer gives me more coverage ffs :P

Will update if I change my mind!

This is a god quality foundation with medium coverage. You don't see it on your skin and it wears flawless the whole day. BUT I get break outs from this when I use it daily... So pity... Its my second bottle, but it looks like I cannot use it, so I have to give it away or use it once a week or something... Thats why I`m not buying it again.

I really like everything about this product. It has a sheer but buildable coverage. You hardly have te reaplly during the day, it stays put for even more than 12 hours! The color pay off is real and it doesn't become orange or anything! I started using this foundation when I was 18, then I descoverd MUA en started to use other foundations. I went from Dior to Channel to MAC to Clinique to Estee Lauder... no foundation made me buy more than 1 bottle... Then one time a SA told me that this foundation along with Estee Lauder's Double Wear is the best sold in all of their stores in Belgium (ICI PARIS XL) so I retried it and I loved it!! I can not say that this will be my HG forever, because I have had other HG's and one day they just stopped doing it for me... but still! I don't think I will be searching for another foundation anymore. I love it's texture, I love it's bottle, I love the sheer but buildable coverage, I love the fact that it adapts itself to your skin (is really true!!), I even love the fact that is so fluid (more fluid than other foundations). I use it with the famous 187 brush from MAC and it gives me an airbrushed face!! If I could marry this product, I would... hope they never change the formula or even worst: discontinue it!!
