I had been on the hunt for this product for a long time, having seen the Lisa Eldridge acne tutorial on YouTube. First thing I have to clarify is that although I do have acne prone skin, I don't have acne. My spots themselves are pretty small but oil...yikes. Sebum is my mortal enemy.
So on the grounds that everything I'd ever used seems to either oxidise and turn me into an orange or melt off my face within the hour of application, I wanted to give this a fair shot.
I bought it in the stick formula as like the MAC foundation sticks, I thought it would be easier to work with. The first thing that struck me was how God awful the shade selection was. I ended up being (somehow) matched with Opal (15) and it makes me look like a zombie. I don't use it all over, just on problem areas but jeez...I look like a orange and white dalmation when I'm done.
I'm the palest shade in literally every foundation range going but this stuff is like Kabuki make up. Its pure white.
I applied it with a concealer brush and I would certainly recommend that as you do get a lovely finish but I think I might need to do some mixing with another product to get the colour right.

I use it a lot not because I like it but because it's the only foundation that hasn't been breaking me out. Doesn't last even with primers and powders and turns my face into an oily greasy mess in an hour. It doesn't even cover my acne scars it just sort of blurs them, for the price I say invest in something else because this sucks

Really wanted to love this because it is aimed at rosacea/sensitive/acne-prone skin, which all of the above totally apply to me. However, all this ended up being is my last resort trial of something with titanium dioxide, which conclusively made me finalize that I cannot use things with it because whether in mineral powder form or liquid makeup form, I end up with a rash of pimple-like things all over my face. My mother kept asking what I did different b/c my skin looked awful and I claimed that the bumps were flattened down but it was acne marks that were left behind b/c that is what I honestly believed. But then I recalled my allergist mentioning something about how she realized she was allergic to titanium dioxide, so now I know it's actually not the mica in mineral makeup that my skin can't handle. This did give good coverage though in my opinion, with a dewy finish. The color choices could definitely improve with more pink-based or neutral tones instead of being mostly yellowish.

looks great for about 1 hour...then its just a very oil mess thats sliding off my face.....even when set with powder. It covers great, i love the colour, makes skin looks flawless but has no staying power at all on oily skin.
TRY La Roche-Posay Toleriane Teint Corrective Fluid Foundation INSTEAD...ITS AMAZING

I have been searching for a full coverage foundation that isn't cakey and I finally found it. I have sun spots, some acne and dark circles and I find this product conceals them wonderfully. I set it with a little powder and I'm good all day. My skin looks pretty close to flawless.
One con is I do have to occassionally powder my face as it can look a little too dewy for my taste at times.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Olive Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
This product is amazing, i love it! Great coverage without looking cakey at all. I haven't been using it for very long so it's hard for me to say what it can do for acne but so far it's a great foundation, i recommend buying it!

I bought this in the lightest shade (15) which is still too dark for my skin. I watched Lisa Eldridge video for using this as a concealer to cover my spots.
I do not like this product! It turns greasy on my dry/combo skin, does not last any time at all, and looks quite masklike BUT still does not cover my spots or even any red patches on my skin.
Won't be buying again.

I'll start off by saying that, though I have quite the plethora of skin problems, I use this primarily as a concealer for both blemishes/redness and undereyes (I prefer lighter coverage wherever else I can get away with it on my face). Overall I like this product quite a bit - enough to use it for about a year, at least! The finish is satin, and the coverage is phenomenal. When used very sparingly, it can really make you look flawless. I apply by squeezing a little dot onto the back of my hand and then applying with fingers or a MAC 217. The few things that have me looking for another concealer now, however, are that the finish can look quite unnatural when built up and that the wear is certainly not stellar. Important things to note: shake before application, because it settles very quickly in the tube. Also, I use the shade Opal on my pale, neutral NW15/NC15 skin and it seems to come out of the bottle much darker than it blends - and it blends into a perfect match! I will continue to use this product as long as I own it (and it will last forever given the small amount you need for great coverage), but the search for my HG concealer continues.

I bought this product after hearing sooo many positive reviews! I do have fairly good skin in the sense that I don't get loads of spots or anything but one thing I do suffer with, especially this time of year, is redness. As soon as the temperature changes a little I go red for hours and it's soooo annoying! So yeah, I bought this hoping that it would cover my redness! And it has done to a certain extent. The staying power is pretty crap, 3-4 hours max probably. Plus it makes my skin incredibly oily and I don't usually have oily skin! I wanted to like this product so much because it really is good coverage, but staying power and oil control is crap....oh well.

My skin is changing in my mid 30s and I have been looking for a good foundation to replace my Liquid FX and I am so stoked to say that I have found it with this product. It's MUCH cheaper and requires very little for great coverage. It seems to cover everything including under eye dark circles which I had yet to find anything that really hid that area. I also have the Derma Blend corrector stick that I keep in my purse. Both are such terrific products. So pleased to have them :)

This stuff is amazing - it literally covers anything! I use a light foundation or tinted moisturiser all over, and then apply this just in the areas I need; this way you avoid looking 'caked'. The packaging is nothing special, but to be honest it's such a good product it doesn't need a fancy box. I would buy this product again, although a little goes such a long way I can't imagine I'll need to for quite a while...

this is my HG <3. the best foundation. I've used all through my teens when I had bad acne growing up.At 22 it's mostly cleared up with only a few scars and uneven skin tone. but this fixes all. I also use it as an undereye concealer and it works magic! For $27 CAD it lasts me a year (and even more) as a little goes a long way! The packaging is in a tube form and the cap cannot be taken off, so the only downfall is you dont know how much is left. I use this with a primer underneath, and blend the foundation well with a flat foundation brush; I find this gives me the best even coverage without looking patchy/cakey. I follow up with the dermablend translucent loose powder and I'm good to go.
I have a fair-medium complexion, very oily skin and Sand was a perfect match for me.
--covers all skin imperfections
-- flawless finish using a flat foundation brush
-- 9-10 hour coverage (with setting powder)
--tube packaging is very professional, simple and hygenic
--oil control isnt very good -- but I use oil blot sheets once or twice when needed, it doesnt bother me.
--not many shades available
--opaque tube; can't see how much is left in the tube

I love love love love this foundation. Its coverage is amazing, its the only foundation to date thats manage to cover all my acne scars (: However a few flaws, it is very heavy and can look caked. Theres very few colours think theres only 5-6 unless im looking in the wrong places and the lightest one they have is still very dark.

I have Vitiligo on my face, near the bottom of my chin, a small but still there spot. I have been using Dermablend (in the pot formula) and I really like it. I find that it covers my vitiligo well enough (the Vitiligo [b]not being there[/b] would be the only thing good enough) and it does wonders for my undereye circles and the occasion acne scar...from picking (yes I know...bad)
I don't think I will like the new formula as much...I can't get the right shade with the new formula.
We shall see
*special note...this is my 100th review :)
***UPDATE*** I have been using this for a long time. Since 2007. As most know the formula has changed. I purchased the last pan of the "old " formula, and that's it for Dermablend for me. The new liquid version is all wrong. It dries before one can actually spread it.Streaky, powdery, cakey, gross. The stick formula is *better but not great. The coverage is less than it was with the pan formula and the colors no longer suit my skin color. That being said, I would repurchase the old kind if I found it on Ebay or some such thing, but I will NOT repurchase the new formulas.

The best coverage ever!
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium Hair: Blond Eyes: Hazel
I love this foundation, my skin is a mess, but this always fixes things up, it's a little tricky to use, because it might look soo fake, but correctly applied it looks perfectly natural, i dont use settng powder, i just use the foundation, a little bit of powder blush, and spray sunblock over it to set everything, i love the way it looks, i often get compliments for my "great" skin...
EDIT: I still use it and love it - but now only as a concealer for pimples, i don't like it as an undereye concealer it tends to cake on fine lines.

I purchased this in light and reallllly had to blend it in in order to make my under eye circles disappear. It dries very quickly, so work fast. Make sure to shake the tube before application because a bit of clear liquid settles near the top.

Yes this stuff covers like crazy. I was looking for a replacement for my Guinot (they have changed the packaging as well as the product - way too pale and drying now). This stuff works very well. Blends easily. A little little little bit goes a very long way. I have been using it for almost 6 months and barely put a dent into it.

Ok, let me start out by saying that this product is for people that have alot of major skin issues. This is NOT for those twenty somethings that have beautiful skin except for an occasional pimple that clears up on it's own (Oh, how lucky you are!!)I have melasma, (which is a serious hyperpigmentation problem) lots of old acne marks and extremely dark under eye circles so i could never wear just a concealer or a sheer foundation. I don't even go out to get the mail without my makeup on! I know... sounds attractive huh?! Most people tell me I'm beautiful but they just don't know what I'm hiding, I've become an expert at it!! (sad huh?!) I'm almost 40 so was looking for something that could cover all that mess without making me look like I was wearing a mask. I think this stuff provides great coverage but it felt VERY heavy and greasy on my skin. I found that it didn't last all day and came off easily on my clothing. I also broke out bad from it(yes even at this age)I keep going back to my Revlon colorstay. I just can't seem to find something that gives me full coverage without being really heavy with a great color selection. So, if you have dry skin and are in need of a very full coverage foundation to cover something like a birth mark or have similar problems as I do then this would be for you. But, if you have oily acne prone skin I would suggest stearing clear of this because it will make those issues much worse. Hope this was helpful!

OMG. this stuff is AMAZING. it conceals like nothing I have ever tried. uneven skin tone, acne scars, breakouts, dark circles..it covers it all! and best of all, VERY LITTLE goes a long way! I used a small pea sized amount for my entire face! $25 for 1 oz will last a good 6 months I think. The only thing I didnt like was the packaging..plastic tube. ick. This claims to last 12 hours and is hypoallergenic, non comedogenic, and non acnegenic. One thing i wish it had was SPF protection but its ok since philosophy's the supernatural has it and i tap a bit of that on top of this.
