this was my powder foundation for like 2 years. im nc40-42, and the shade in tan was perfect for me. i bought this twice...it lasted me a long time. i didnt have to use a lot because the coverage lasted all day. my skin never looked cakey and it looked fresh and natural.
the only thing i disliked about this was the packaging. the compact is too long. a smaller compact would be better.

There is not really anything wrong with this foundation. The color, Nude, was fine for me, but I just really don't like powder foundation. I thought I would, but I didn't. The coverage is good and is adjustable. You get better coverage if you wet the sponge or lighter coverage if you apply it dry. It has a nice silky feel and the compact is kind of pretty. I am using it as a powder over my regular foundation and for touch ups during the day.

I've been using physicians formula mineral powder for the longest time. But I've been having some problems with it lately and it was getting messy to apply so I wanted to try something different. I looked at reviews for this stuff and read both good and bad. I really need full coverage because I have breakouts plus marks left behind by past breakouts so I had high hopes for this stuff. I picked up the cream shade at walgreens for $14.99 which seemed like a lot to me but I really wanted to try it so I paid for it, took it out of the box, and tried it as soon as I got in the car. I already had makeup on though so I knew I had to wait until the morning to really find out if it worked. And for me like some others have said, it'll probably work if you have minor imperfections you want to cover. But for me it didn't cover the dark marks or breakouts at all. And in order to just cover the lighter marks I had to use a lot of product, which would probably result in this not even lasting me 2 weeks which is poor especially for the amount I paid for it. I'll probably hold onto just to use for touch ups, but I went back to physicians formula (which I've written a review about) because it offers superior coverage compared to this stuff and I think if I changed moisturizers it'll start working for me again.

the worst powder foundation ever!!!! it sucked so bad. first off, i usually dont wear powder because my skin is dryer in the winter and it feels too gross for summer so i stay away from powders. i decided to give this a try after seeing a girl on youtube use studio fix by MAC so i thought this might be similar they priced it high enough anyway....BOY WAS I WRONG!! my skin color is NC20 and i thought ivory was a good color match for my pale skin HELL NO it was way too white i seriously looked like casper. i had to put like 4 layers to make it look like i had any makeup on and to top it all off, it showed off my flaky spots like they were going ouot of style! i hate this product im so pissed i lost my reciept and paid 14.99 for this shit

Very light foundation. Very fine powder. Ideal for flawless normal skin. It is a delicate product. I will try it again.

This one has light coverage and does well to minimize my little blemishes, but won't hide more than that. I did find one that matches my skintone, that's a plus. It does stay on and stay smooth throughout the day. I might buy this again, but then again, I'm always on the hunt for something better.

This product reminds me of the Merle Norman Luxiva Powder Foundation. It gives about the same coverage and feels the same after applying it. My face is combo/and just a tad oily, and this feels kind of "dry" and "tight" After putting it on. I don't think this would be good for those with dry skin...maybe if you wet it, I don't know. This is over $12.oo...that's kind of high for a d/s foundation, but not bad if you love it. The MN isn't that much higher and you get more product, so I would just buy the MN. They have a better color selection also the this. I DO however like the compact and the overall look is better than average. But, if your tone seems to change like mine does different times of the year, you'd be better off sticking to a liquid, since you can blend it into the skin better than this powder.

No coverage. It's soft, and leaves a "polished" look to your skin, but that's only good if you already have great skin, and if you don't have dry patches. It accentuated my dry patches and made my concealer stand out. The colors are weird, and the compact shape is too large and awkward.

I have both this and mac studio fix. It's just as good! Not great on dry skin, like all powders are...but it's a good light cover. I look polished with just this foundation. I miss it! Loreal bring back the airwear line...I have loved it for years and then they replace it with infalliable.

I have been using this foundation for a few months, and I am really loving it. I use the ivory shade and It goes on really easily, it blends in wonderfully, and I love that it has SPF in it. Also, the sponge that comes with it works great for me! 4 lippies for a good foundation.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Used this since 3 years ago. Love it. Has SPF 17, doesn't cause acne for my oily and acne-prone skin. It is not as "all day longlong-wearing" as it claimed but still a good foundation.

I used this for many years until recently when I switched to CG Trublend Powder Foundation. I put concealer on any spots then I put this powder foundation on. I liked it because it set my concealer & hid some of the redness on my face. It is very light & you have to build it up to get coverage. I was very happy with it until I deceided to update my makeup & tried the CG powder foundation. The compact is sturdy & the mirror & sponge are a good size. It is pricy though for a DS brand. I used 20 Cream. I have very fair skin & the Ivory shade was too light. I would reccomend CG Trublend Powder Foundation over this but if you didn't like that one, try this, you might like it.

Still looking for something that works like Olay Complete Radiance Compact foundation. This sure isn't it! Coverage is horrible, and as stated by others, the light shade is VERY light, even on my PPP skin. Next shade up is way too dark. That aside, it takes SO much of this to get any coverage--I can't imagine it will last more than a week or two. Too expensive, bad colors, no coverage, F-!

Great coverage. Although my skin didn't stay shine-free the whole day, it didn't give my skin breakout. It's not the best one i've used so far, but it's worth it.

I love this makeup! It was the nearest to my color match in Caramel! I have yellow based skin and its hard to find a perfect color match for me but this did near the job! =) plus the price isnt too shabby. I love powder so this was a great one for me, but since im Germany now its even hundred times harder for me to find color matches let alone any makeup that i liked in America, like this makeup, cant buy it here, at least not where i live! Newho 5 lippies, nice color, good coverage.. love it!

This powder foundation does a poor job in keeping shine away. After 2 hours, I realized that my face was fairly shiny. I have to blot the oil not long after putting the founddation on. Not to mention that the color changes to a orangy look, not good :o( But I do have to admit that I did not breakout from this product.
It does a okay job in terms of coverage. The price is okay.
I would not considering in repurchasing the product.

I got this powder on a two for one sale at Longs and found it so dissapointing I actually managed to return it even though I had used it.
The packaging is large and inconvenient, with the sponge in a seperate tray that has holes (therefore exposing it to bacteria etc.) and a useless plastic flip top over the powder. Although the powder has a silky feel and good coverage it dried my skin by the end of the day leaving me with dry flakes on my forhead and chin.
It also can look far too thick really easily, giving an old woman mask of makeup look.
Overall, don't waste nearly $14.00 on a drugstore brand, I've had better luck with L'oreal Translucide and Almay.

I have this in cream 558. In looking at the container its in, it has SPF 17, which I didn't know, that is a plus. I am not a fan of drugstore powders/foundations as its hard to get a color match. This is probably lighter than I need, but I usually 'custom blend' and add bronzer as needed during winter depending on how light I get. This has great coverage, I had been using it dry, but I like it applied with a wet sponge, the application is more sheer. It can be VERY opaque with a dry sponge. VERY long lasting, very blendable, doesn't sit on my face, get in pores, crease or do other things that a nice foundation should NOT do. If nothing else, I use this daily as a concealer under my eyes, it blends AWESOME. I would definitely buy this again.

My mom bought this for me from a sale at CVS and at first I was in love with it. It smoothed out my skin, made it look healthy, and was very light. Then time moved on and I noticed that it dosen't have very good oil control [my forehead tends to get shiny after a few hours] and at the end of the day when I wash it off, I noticed some new pimples. If you buy this I would suggest you not wear it during the summer or when its really hot because when you sweat, this stuff gets all melty and can cause your skin to break out. Plus if you have dry skin, it flakes around those areas. The packaging is done pretty well though, the powder dosent break and the case dosen't open by itself in my purse. However, I don't believe I will be re purchasing this product.

I used to wear this religiously because it was the only ds powder foundation pale enough for my NC15 very fair skin (Ivory #10). However, it started to look chalky & dry on my cheeks and didn't provide enough oil control on my combo t-zone, especially forehead, whether I applied with a brush or a sponge. It does have adjustable coverage, depending on what method you use to apply, but it still looked chalky, and pale & chalky isn't my best look. It is very finely milled which is a slight plus I guess, but still. I like the spf, but I wear spf moisturizer underneath anyway so it made little difference. I also dislike the packaging, big & bulky so forget carrying it around with you. I never experienced breakouts and I've used it up but won't repurchase unless a BOGOF. It's just too costly for a ds product on it's own (12.99!) so I'm still on the search for the perfect powder foundation.
