I went to a store to buy Parure Gold (#02) of Guerlain, but it was out of stock. I got two pouch samples of Time Response Skin Renewal Foundation. I tried it out for 1 week and bought it. The reaction of new cosmetics to my skin usually comes in a day, so one week trial was good enough for me. I have used this foundation for 2 weeks, and Iím very satisfied with it. I had used the Parure Gold for about 3 and half years. I liked it. However, the Time Response Skin Renewal Foundation evens out my complexion more and has more coverage without heavy feeling compared to the Parure Gold.
It doesnít make my skin break out.
The shade #104 matches for my complexion very well.
Itís is easy to apply. It has light to medium coverage.
It lasts long enough for me. I usually wear cosmetics for at most 8 hours. I donít have to reapply anything except for sun protection when I spend time outside.
It is not oily at all, and it keeps my face moisturized. In addition, the particles of this foundation are very fine, so it rarely cracks on the fine lines unless I reapply a lot on the areas with fine lines. For your reference, I have smile lines. T-zone is a little oily, but other parts are normal to dry.
My only complaint of this foundation is that I donít like its fragrance. The range of shades is not wide, so it might be an issue for some people to find a right shade.
This foundation is a little expensive, but it is worth it for people who have a sensitive, acne prone-skin. Iíll buy it again unless it brings about troubles to my skin or I find a better foundation. Iíll repost if I find any issue of this foundation. Even though this product says SPF 18, you shouldnít count on it for sun protection.

ok. love this foundation and it actually improves the condition of my skin. as you may know from other reviews i have very uneven pigment and struggle with acne mainly on my chin, and yay i'm starting to get wrinkles. lemme break it down for you:
color: the 100 range is pink/beige based, the 200 range is yellow/beige based. i bought 204 and 206 cuz i like to look tan and find that the yellow based foundations make me look better with my brown eyes and ombre brown blonde hair. 206 is too dark for me but i wear it like a tinted moisturizer and it looks GREAT
finish: moist, zero mattifying, zero greaseballing, zero sunscreen flashback. it's got a fabulous finish. clings to the skin without "sinking into it" and accentuating pores
coverage: true medium. it's heavier than a tinted moisturizer, but not opaque like a full coverage foundation. it just makes ya look great. kind of like laura mercer silk finish but with better comfort on the skin
wrinkes: DOES NOT ACCENTUATE WRINKLES. it just doesn't. and without a lot of annoying silicones. yay.
breakout risk: for me? ZERO which is miraculous. have not broken out from this foundation ever, in fact i feel like it might even be clearing up my skin. it's expensive as hell and claims to have all these good ingredients so this could be the reasons why.
i have a zillion foundations. and when i travel i tend to pack them all because i never know what the lighting situation is going to be, the sun situation, etc...and everytime i am freaking out that i am too ugly and my skin is horrifying and i should hide away from society, i do find myself reaching for THIS ONE.
bonus: does't seem to oxidize
watchout: does get greasy around the nose during the day. can 'catch' on your hairline if you are prone to heavyhanded application like m'self.
color selection: i actually own two of these: 204 and 206 and i mix em. very mixable.
packaging: the packaging is amazing and every single foundation/product should come in a package like this. ZERO air exposure, spill risk, waste. it's this little pump thing that you press (like in a nail salon when they tap on that cap of nail polish remover and some comes out onto the cotton pad) i did drop one and the cap cracked and now it doesn't stay on which is kind of a bummer but whatevs.
recommendation: get a bunch of samples from the AP counter near you and try it for a week then buy. it's too expensive. BUT, it's really great for young or old.

Pros: absolutely natural, undetectable finish, luminous yet no detection of glitters, (not even minute particles) just glowy, in a non-oily kind of way. The product is a creamy-liquid, but just a small amount is needed for the entire face. I tried it with & without primer, either way, it just melts into the skin. It comes in a sealed glass bottle, when press, small amount of product will ďoozeĒ from the circled ďorificeĒ, convenient & hygienic. It makes me look so rested & tranquil, not at all with make-up on.
Honestly I can comment on the longevity as I don't need to be out for more than 4 hours & the weather now is in the early teens.
Con: For those with major issues, going over areas like hyperpigmentation with this product is not going to do the job, my suggestion, followed with a concealer. Also those with pitted acne scars, this foundation is not going to camouflage. The price is Cad $100 which can be quite a put-off.
I have major pigmentation issues & just go over those areas with concealer (Cinema Secrets) afterwards, no big deal.
Time Response is the Korean cosmetic line geared towards the international market. In Canada, I think only Holt in Toronto carried this product. All shades in the #100 has a pinkish tone; while the #200 has a yellowish tone. I am NC 35 & used #204. My skin is dry with slightly oily T-zone. I may cautious those with oily skin to proceed with caution.
In short, I totally love this fdn. Now it can join my CdP, Sisley, YSL, Cinema Secrets to be my Top 5 !!!
