HG foundation but the packaging is a nightmare and you have to be really careful which brush etc you use to apply. I've tried loads of different brushes and non work as well as my fingers do. I always tell people to not use your fingers but you have to with this foundation to make it work well

My absolute FAVORITE foundation! Smells phenomenal and feels like a moisturizer. I have some acne scarring and sun spots and this has great coverage without looking or feeling cakey! My skin looks healthy, dewy and natural all day long. OBSESSED!

I believe I've found my Holy Grail Foundation - FINALLY.
Healthier ingredients - no talc, no parabens, no wax, no soy extracts - YAYYYYyyy
I got a 1/2 size for $25 in SAND - Color match is perfect for me (thanks to someone else's review). Yay. I read that Sand is a match to NC20, and I'm NW20 and it's perfect.
I agree with other reviewers that the pot is less than practical. I got a little spatula to scoop out my day's foundation. A pea size covers my whole face.
I also agree with other reviewers that:
- this is a light-to-medium coverage
- it's very moisturizing
- it is NOT buildable
- using too much in the undereye area will accent wrinkles
- a very light dusting of powder helps it not crease but if you use no powder it may crease under the eyes.
I press the tiniest bit of powder into my undereye area with a sponge or kabuki brush and it sets like a dream.
After looking at some 20 foundations, I think I may have found my HG. If not I'll update my rating.
Thank you everyone for your reviews and info that helped me find this!!

I really hate to give products a "1 Star" rating, because I'm sure this is a great foundation for someone out there, but I could not get this to work for me AT ALL. This is marketed/reviewed typically as a medium-full coverage foundation, but on me, for some reason, it is very low coverage. Granted, I applied this with a damp Beauty Blender, but even after a couple of layers, I did not get more than a low-end medium coverage. The sales associate told me it was best applied with your fingers, because the warmth "melts" the cream into a liquid. I ended up layering different foundations on top of it both times, trying to get it to work, and both times, it separated on my skin, causing it to look super patchy. My room is dimly lit, so once I got to work (the first time), I noticed giant patches of my skin's natural redness showing through, and I don't have particularly oily or problematic skin that would cause this foundation to react weirdly. I decided to give it another try, and once I sprayed my MAC's Fix+ to set it, it basically melted off! You could see each individual water droplet on my face, and made it appear even more patchy. Not to mention, the smell of this is highly herbal/medicinal, which is very off-putting. Luckily, I only got a sample of this to try... I would definitely recommend sampling before buying!

Really like this, gives me natrual coverage and moisturises my very dry skin. Also smells lovely, like lavender! BB is my fave brand and she's never steered me wrong (yet)... Recently purchased the moisture rich foundation so we'll see how that goes!

I have very dry "mature" skin and this foundation suits me perfectly. It looks completely natural, and the degree of coverage buildable. The color I bought [Porcelain 0) matches my fair skin - it just disappears. I love the way it looks on my face, and the broad-range sun protection it offers. The foundation isn't cheap, but a little goes a long way.
The only negative, in my view, is the rather strong and not very pleasant scent. It clearly isn't perfume - I guess it's just the smell of the ingredients.
As long as you have dry skin [not combination], this foundation is definitely worth considering.

+ Shade selection of foundation is perfect (tan, yellow undertones)
+ Coverage isn't too heavy and can be buildable
- Looks and feels greasy, only gets shinier throughout the day
- Not a fan of the smell which is really strong
- Throughout the day the product gets in my eyes and burns

This foundation is quite nice for drier skin, but since my skin is combination I can only get away with it sometimes. It's thick and the consistency is wonderful. The only thing is that it tends to leave my face shiny, not glowy or "lit from within" it's heavy and feels a bit greasy. I thought this might be nice for summer since I got the shade a tiny bit darker than usual, but it's way to thick and makes me feel like I'm wearing a mask. Like I said, when my other foundations are a bit too dry for me I may reach for this. I think this might be a good nighttime product. Now, I would've given this 4 lippies, except the smell!! It's horrendous. I'm not sure if I got a bad batch or what. It reaks of rotten lemon. A lot of rotten lemons. I wouldn't mind if it wasn't so strong and so expensive. Overall, if you have dry skin and like something a bit heavier and dewier, get it :)

I actually love this foundation. I am a long time user of the moisturizing illuminating foundation and tried this one on a lark. So glad i did!!! It is a lot more sheer than i would expect it to be and it really makes my skin look perfect and not made up. It is not for oily skin...i would recommend for those on the dry side of normal. Also, i apply it with a damp beauty blender, which I've found to have delivered the best results. My results haven't been as stellar with a brush or my hands...but with the sponge, it is as close to an HG as I've ever gotten.

I didn't get on with this product at all and it's one of the few products I regret buying. I'm really dissappointed with this and I wouldn't suggest it to anyone.
Firstly, it's very odd to apply, tried foundation brush, stippling brush, sponge and with my fingers that ended up being the best option. It is so ridiculously dewy that doesn't cover at all and you can't layer it because for some reason it never really sits on the skin, If you try concealer on top of it it will move and won't cover as over other foundations.I tried powdering it, 5 hours later it looked as if I had no foundation on at all. As if all of this wasn't enough this product sits in your fine lines like no other and I don't even have proper wrinkles!
I've tried using it in so many ways because it's so pricey but nothing ever seems to work, I really hate it...
