I purchased this after running out of Urban Decay's Naked Skin, which I loved. This foundation is a drugstore dupe, and the color Creamy Natural is almost identical to Naked Skin in 3.5.

I will say that this is thicker than Naked Skin and has the propensity for very full coverage, but I use the Urban Decay magic transfiguration Harry Potter brush, or whatever it's called, and I can work the foundation in without looking like I'm wearing a mask. A little goes a long way, and I will repurchase this over the Naked Skin. With as little as I use, I won't need to repurchase for at least 2 years, and hopefully L'Oréal won't discontinue the foundation.

This foundation does get a little shiny, and I'm pretty dry, which is why I gave it 4 lippies instead of 5, but a little powder will fix it.

This is a really good foundation. It reminds me of UD's Naked Skin liquid foundation. The way it melts onto your skin is lovely. It lasts all day and has Light to Medium coverage.

It definitely reminds me of my dior foundation in terms of texture,coverage and finish.in fact I'd say this one is a bit more runny and more blendable.I got it in the shade c1 and it is way too pink for me,that was the only con.

I LOVE this foundation. It really gives a beautiful luminous sheen to the skin that looks really natural. It has good coverage and stays put pretty well through long days. There may be foundations that cover more fully and stay put longer, but I just love the way this foundation looks like you're wearing no makeup and having dewy skin. Already on my third bottle!

I really wanted to love this foundation but once I wore it there was no way I could reccomend this to anyone. I have normal/Dry skin and this feels so greasy on my skin. It also doesn't cover well. It feels as if it lay on top of my skin and just moves and rubs off right after application.

I had such high hopes for this after reading so many great reviews and the super cute packaging, but I just can't get over the tackiness of it.. I set it with powder and everything and I still have the tackiness. Not to mention, I have normal to dry skin and this ABSOLUTELY left me blotting (I've never had to blot a day in my life) just after being outside for 5-10 minutes - it made me look like a greasy mess! Mind you, I'm from Pennsylvania and we get heat and humidity but definitely not to constitute that! I couldn't stand it! I'm giving it an overall rating of 3 because I'm going to give it a go in the winter to see if maybe my skin will respond better in the colder months. For now, I'd rate it a 2. It has nice coverage and blends beautifully, love the packaging and pump but ugh the tackiness and summer months just DO NOT MIX. Check back in January to see what I think then...

I am very impressed with this foundation. I have used some very expensive ones and bang for your buck you can't go wrong. It goes on very nice ( I use a foundation brush) and sets to a light luminous finish. Like any foundation I always say less is more and you don't need a lot of this. I would say it is medium to full coverage. I set it with a loose powder after letting the foundation sit for 5-10 minutes or so. It has no fragrance and does not break me out as I tend to be a bit sensitive. The shades are quite impressive as well. I don't think it would be suitable for oily skin because of the finish it leaves, a bit on the shiny side but, doesn't feel greasy. The pump it has it great and non messy. You can easily control how much you want without the traditional pour and cap bottles. I will definitely buy this again. I am not usually a L'Oreal makeup user but, this one is a keeper for me!!

I picked up this foundation as I read a lot of good reviews on it & I wasn't disappointed.
It is a beautiful foundation that gives a flawless finish. It has a pump which allows you to control the amount you use & its more hygienic.
The colour matches in this foundation seem similar to high end brands as they offer warm & cool shades. I would purchase this foundation again.
It gives a dewy finsh but I use powder over the top of it as my skin can get oily at times.

I have been looking for a foundation to combat my dry skin and also not break me out. I am acne prone, dry, but oily in the t-zone. I really like this foundation. The pros are that it looks very natural on the skin, it doesn't accentuate dry patches, and it leaves your skin looking healthy and luminous. The biggest plus is what it does for my skin. It has never broke me out. BIG. PLUS. I have sensitive skin, and A LOT of foundations break me out. This is probably the biggest reason I will continue to use this foundation.

On the other hand, I can't say that I love this foundation because it does sink into pores. It also lasts a good while, but after 6 hours begins to break down. When I get home, I can see the foundation has seeped into my pores. It doesn't look that great. It also wipes off easy. I work in the OR, and wear face masks often. This stuff comes off like crazy and I am usually left with a large mark of foundation that rubbed off after I take my mask off.

Overall, this is a great everyday foundation, but if you have an event to go to or if you're going to have a lot of pictures taken, I wouldn't choose this foundation. I would go with something a little more long wearing and one that doesn't seep into pores after six hours of wear.

I LOVE this foundation. I am especially dry in the winter and I have a really hard time finding foundation that doesn't cling to dry patches. It gives a pretty light coverage, but you can't build up the coverage, it would look cakey. It isn't sparkly or shiny it just adds a little bit of healthy glow/color, which i desperately need in the winter. LOVE.
