It's a nice foundation for those who want a tad bit more coverage than a tinted moisturizer but aren't fully into heavier foundations. It goes on super smooth and silky, I love it. The coverage is light and the texture is very lightweight and smooth. I apply with my fingers because I feel like a brush sucks up the product.

Pros:
Nice color selection
Light coverage yet flawless
Looks good for 7 - 8 hours
No need to powder unless you're oily

Cons:
The packaging is horrible - no pump
Can stick to dry patches because it's a powdery finish

I purchased this product in light ivory and it was a disaster. The color was way to light on my skin and I didn't have the time to wash it off so I ended up wearing it all day. Also whenever I would touch my face it kind of felt like I had dirt on my face. I don't know if I just bought it and it was already ruined in the package or it just goes on that way but I definitely was not impressed.

I really love this product. I always buy two at a time in case it is ever discontinued. I am 70+ years old and happy I found it a few years ago. I have always used liquid makeup, but with time I knew I had to switch to something even lighter. It is so lightweight and smooth. Goes on very nicely and stays until I remove it. Doesn't settle into the wrinkles as badly as some of the thicker foundations.
I use a primer first - usually Lanacane antichafing gel.
It takes a little practice the first few times,and you have to remember to shake it well, but I just pour a small puddle in the palm of my hand and smooth it on with my fingers.
A great hint I learned years ago is to wring out a washcloth with cold water and just press it to my face after applying foundation and blush. That sets the makeup and evens it all out. It's a little too thin to really hide the brownish areas on my face, but I guess you can't have everything.

This has similar coverage and consistency to Mac face and body. A little more watery than face and body. I don't like a lot of coverage so this is great for me. It's slightly dewy which I'm good with because I have dry skin. Color match is pretty good

I absolutely love this stuff. It's a liquid but it really does feel like a powder. The coverage is great and my only problem is it is runny so if you don't shake well it can get a bit messy. Other than that I am so extremely happy I caught this stuff on sale at Walgreens. I would recommend and I will definitely be buying it again.

I actually really love this foundation. I have oily skin that can sometimes get clogged, so I tend not not buy silicone heavy foundations, but this one works well for me somehow. I like that it starts as a liquid and then turns into powder on the skin. A bit of a warning for acne prone MUAers, though, make sure to remove it really well at the end of the day because it can cause little clogged pores otherwise. I also recommend using a primer if your skin is very easily clogged. I find that a moisturizer/sunscreen barrier is enough for me, and I can make it to the end of the day without worrying about spots.

The foundation itself is very fluid and can come out of the bottle quickly, so sometimes I pour out too much and have to sort of slide it back into the bottle. Coverage is light to medium, if you carefully layer. I rather enjoy the light coverage, though, because it looks incredibly natural. It evens out my skintone, but doesn't cover freckles or moles. I use 312 Classic Ivory for my half Chinese, half Caucasian skin and it works pretty well. I would prefer something a little less dark, but the 310 Light Ivory makes me look very pale. Not sure if there is a shade in between, but I think I'm going to have to start mixing the two at some point. It doesn't have a scent and lasts me the workday, which is good enough. I admit it does melt a little after 8 hrs, but that's okay.

Overall, a complete win from L'Oreal even if it is a tad pricy for drugstore foundation. It's still a fraction of the price of my usual Guerlain or Dior foundation.

This foundation set beautifully in my skin!
I loved the natural look it gives me.
Although I have oily skin it lasts OK in my skin throughout the day.
However it doesn't have much coverage so you'll have to definitely use a concealer
if you have any imperfections.
Definitely buying it again.

I cannot tell you how much I love this foundation. I never wore foundation until very recently, my skin did not like my retin-a medication & left me with a bunch of red marks on my chin & by my mouth. So now I kind of have to wear it.. I spent $60 at Mac on some foundation & concealer and I will be returning it after coming across this product. This is not cakey AT ALL, and my Mac concealer/foundation were both very cakey. I love how this is so lightweight. It is perfect for covering up the little marks on my face. I will never use anything other than this!

I was wary of this product because of how thin the consistency is. I usually like full coverage matte foundations, but this one is great for evening out my skin tone when my skin is actually behaving itself. I wasn't expecting it to control my oilies considering the slightly silicone-y feel when applying it but...I'll be ding-danged. It works extremely well. It's a great lightweight foundation, especially for summer. I love it because it keeps me matte without accentuating my wrinkles like Colorstay. I hope this isn't getting discontinued and only being repackaged because it was on clearance at CVS.
