I love Mary Kay Day Radiance Foundation! It covers blemishes, scars and dark circles under the eyes. It leaves my skin looking young. It is water and sun resistant, so it's great for swimming and water sports and for just every day use. I have ultra sensitive skin that breaks out even with make-up claiming to be "hypoallergenic", but I can wear this makeup with no problems - actually, with fewer because it protects my skin. I've had tons of compliments on my complexion over the decades I've worn it. I look younger than I am, in part thanks to the day radiance cream foundation and its moisture-retention qualities. When I wear it, I don't break out like I do without it. It protects against the sun for rosacea. I feel that Mary Kay woefully under-markets this product, give all of its great unique qualities:
>Water resistant (it doesn't come off when I swim)
>Long lasting (all day coverage)
>Sun Protection
>Great with sensitive skin and rosacea
>Excellent coverage, even for blemishes, dark circles, spots, freckles and scars
>Age Defying, moisturizing, diminishes wrinkles & protects skin
>Evens skin tone and helps with combination skin - it gets rid of both dry skin & blemishes

I am loving this foundation right now...maybe it is because I am getting close to 50 and my skin is getting a little dry. I apply this creamy foundation with a sponge and I use a tiny bit because I want it to be sheer. It makes my skin dewy and younger looking. I do top it off with loose powder to set it and it wears well all day. I wear Antique Ivory.

I actually sell Mary Kay. I used Clinique before I switched to this makeup because the Acne Solutions and Superfit were not working on my skin. They are great products, but just stopped working for me. I like this product because it does control oil for up to eight hours. I always put powder over it. I use the MK pressed powder in Ivory 1. This makeup blends easily and covers very well. I'd say it could be full coverage. The tube is great bc you can squeeze every last drop out of it. The only thing I don't like is that after a while, it does settle into creases. I mean, my laugh lines sometimes showcase my makeup. I don't like that about it. That's the only thing I can think of. One great thing is that it didn't break my face out. That's a huge plus for me!

Well i have tried many foundations....high-end, low-end, and i always come back to this. I have redness, dry cheeks, and it is very hard to find a foundation that doesn't make my cheeks look like they are flaking (you know the speckled look). But MK Day Radiance Cream Foundation always does the job. I love Fawn Beige, and it is a versatile color enough that i dont really change it from summer to winter. I guess i will always be loyal!!

Haha, I like the post below me.

Well, I like it. I've been using it for about a month now. I apply with a brush instead of a sponge, and it makes my complexion look smooth and even. It also matches my tone, which I find hard to do. I use Toasted Beige. Of course, in the warmer months it will stop matching and perhaps be too much for the hot weather, but for winter I really enjoy it.

This was the worst foundation I have everrrrr tried! It is the most unnatural looking foundation ever. It is extremely too thick, and looks like a mask, even when you only apply a little. Not to mention that if your face touches anyything it will smear right off - nasty! The color just plain suck, and don't even get me STARTED on the packaging!

I don't know if I will wear this year round, but for the cooler months it's working great. The color is a perfect match for my skin. I apply it lightly all over, and dab and blend it heavier on the places where I need more coverage. I can use this on dark circle area without it drying the eye area out. My skin looks smooth and glowy with this foundation. I like that is has an spf of 8 with titanium dioxide too, which is reinforcement of my spf moisturizer. I use a little powder over this foundation to "set" it.

UPDATE: Quit using this as it seemed to disagree with my skin after a while. It became too much like an oil coating.

I like this foundation, I wish they had my color in the oil free one. It glides on smooth and blends nicely. I use the color fawn beige.. If anyone knows of an oil free color that is close to this one, please let me know. Thanks

Hated it. After wearing this my skin felt so gross and heavy. None of the colors matched my skin very well either. I had to scrub my face for a long time before bed, because it clogged my pores so badly.
