I hated this foundation. It did nothing but break out my skin. It also was TOO liquidy. It felt like I was just putting water on my skin. No coverage and made my skin slick. Not sexy.

I have very oily skin and prone to breakouts but this product was recommended on a acne website because of its non-clogging ingredients. Unfortunately it is not good for oily skin--i almost immediately looked shiny even with applying a loose powder. It is discontinued, but found it on amazon, so I bought 3 colors not knowing which would be the one. I like Buff because it isn't pinky and is light but not too light. I'm bummed out because it is so hard to find a product that doesn't cause breakouts and will help control shine.
UPDATE: I have been using this foundation with Mattify powder and the combination is wonderful. It really makes your skin look wonderful and doesn't break you out. Without a powder you may shine if you are oily, but it is a very nice foundation for acne prone skin.

This is an okay foundation. I dislike the glass bottle, and wish it had a pump, but other then that, it is okay for a sheer foundation. More like a tinted moisturizer in my opinion. It's nice for lazy days when all I want to do is throw on foundation, mascara, and lipcolor.

I really like this. This is a light to medium coverage foundation and you can build it up. I don't recommand to much layer though, can be look a little bit caky. If apply the right amount, it look so "naked" on the skin. No scent and won't clog pores. I have acne and it didn't make it worse at all. beautiful finish. my only problem is it is kind of hard to pour out because it is creamer texture in a glass bottle without pump. I heard the newer version have pump though.

I love this foundation so so so much! it, doesn't clog my pores or rub off during the day. It's easy to take off at night, it's easy to apply, and even if you buy it in a shade darker or even lighter than your skin tone it still looks natural. This foundation is great for anyone really

My HG foundation by far!! I mean, I go on Amazon and buy it because I have to now that it's been whisked out of drugstores near me. I nearly cried. This has been my favorite foundation for over two years--clearly it performs long term! My sensitive skin has always responded well to Almay products, but this foundation is far and away the best on offer. You can find a shade that matches, or go slightly darker (like I do) and still look natural. This foundation gives a dewy (not shiny!) glow with pretty good, semi-buildable coverage that lasts me throughout hot and cold days. Love, love love!!

This is my absolute favourite drugstore foundation. It gives me the most natural looking coverage I've ever had from a liquid foundation. It doesn't clog my pores, and doesn't rub off yet is very easy to wash off at night. I recommend this foundation for any skin type! :)

So i bought this in buff, which is slightly darker than my freakishly pale skin tone... and surprisingly it worked. It blended really well and gave me that "sunkissed without looking orange" look. I actually didn't even mean to buy it in buff, it's just that my normal color wasn't available at the store i bought it in. I love the coverage. I don't need too much, just enough to even out my skin tone and cover some redness(although it is buildable). It has a nice glowy finish without looking oily and felt really soft and natural on my skin (i felt like it wasn't even there!!!). I almost always set my foundation with powder but for this one i just put some on my T zone. I love this stuff and am actually looking forward to buying this in the future.

Got this on sale at RiteAid for $3 but I think the normal price is around $12 - $15 which is not too bad. I've been looking for an alternative to my Missha BB Cream (love it!) that I have been trying to use sparingly until I can get more. I'm all about SPF so the 15 is a plus. Buildable coverage to probably about medium but I usually do a sheer layer to smooth and even out my skin. A bit dewy so I recommend a setting powder. DEFINITELY takes a bit of smacking around to get it out of the bottle so I hope they can design it a bit better.

I'm hoping the company attaches a pump to this, it's kind of thick so it takes me a minute to beat it out of the bottle. Overall I'm happy with this though, Almay tends to match my fair coloring better than most of the other drugstore brands. I haven't noticed any acne from it and I tend to have sensitive skin that reacts to everything. In my case I think it's making my skin look better, clearer, and overall more healthy when I take it off. I find this provides a little bit of a dewy finish which I like and it evens out my skin and covers up problem areas without looking cake or very makeup like. I've used the clear complexion from this brand as well but like this one a little better as it doesn't dry me out or emphasize dry patches. I would say if your skin was more oily to try the clear complexion but if you lean towards the dryer side the nearly naked is better. As another bonus this one has a little SPF in it which is nice since I need sunscreen every day to keep freckles, scar darkening, and burning at bay. This was a great buy for the $2 I spent on it at Rite Aid on sale! Tip- It applies better with a brush, even though I usually prefer my fingertips.

I randomly picked this up on clearance at Walgreens for $3. Months later, I finally got around to using it, expecting it to be a last ditch option.
Boy, was I wrong! I was pleasantly surprised with this foundation. It's light coverage for foundation, just a step up from a tinted moisturizer. It's easily blended with a gorgeous satin finish. Decent staying power and doesn't break me out.
You'll still need to apply concealer to trouble spots for a flawless look, but all things considered this a great option if you want a tad more coverage than your TM provides.

I bought this foundation because it was the only one at the drugstore that was light enough for my skin. Ivory 120 is still a little too dark, the colour reminds me of MAC's NC15, but it's wearable for me.
However, the only asset of this foundation is the colour. The coverage is very sheer, it reminds me of a tinted moisturizer. The textrure is VERY dewy, which looks terrible on my oily skin. I need to powder my face at least once in 2 hours when I'm wearing this.
I can see this foundation working well for people with normal to dry skin who don't need a lot of coverage. However, if your skin is even a little oily, beware.

This is an interesting foundation. It is very skin-like and natural, and incredibly easy to blend. I would recommend this to any teenager or makeup beginner who wants to start testing out foundation.
This will even out your skin tone and give you a slightly airbrushed look, yet the makeup itself is virtually undetectable. I swear, people WILL NOT KNOW that you have makeup on! So that's awesome. The drawback, naturally, is that you'll need a separate concealer for blemishes and dark under-eye circles, as this stuff is too light and sheer to be an all-in-one product.
It has a soft glow (you'll definitely want to set with powder), and excellent sun protection from titanium dioxide and zinc oxide. If you're interested in natural coverage, you should definitely try this out. It's as light as Almay's Smart Shade makeup, but with better shades (I find those run too beigey-orange).
It's hard to find soft, cool-toned ivories that aren't just straight-up ugly PINK. This has a really natural cool tone, and is a welcome respite from all the orange and beige "ivory" shades out there (I'm looking at you, Cover Girl!).
Bottom line: this is a unique product, give it a try!
I thought I liked this stuff, but then I realized I was never wearing it. The reason? It's just too dewy. It feels gross on your face, and no amount of power makes it feel "set." So on that basis, I don't really recommend it anymore. I think there are better options (Paula's Choice Best Face Forward Foundation, Missha BB cream).

READ EDIT UPDATE: I've tried this out once before and for some reason I didn't quite like it. It looked oily and shiny on my face. But I decided to give it another go. But this time I mixed it with revlon photoready liquid foundation. I couldn't find the right shade for me the closest I could find was 140 buff but it's a tad too light so I mixed revlons 004 nude and omg it's the best duo together. It makes me look like I'm not wearing any foundation at all. It just looks like you have really nice and healthy skin. I also realized that I'm less shiny on my t-zone as well.
EDIT: I have been breaking out when I used this for over 3 weeks. And I realized it was this foundation. It clogged my pores :( it even clogged my sisters pores. Cause she wanted to try it out too. We haven't been using it ever since and our skin have cleared up. I will never use it again. I will stick to my HG foundation which is the revlon color stay and photoready been using that for 5 years and never had a problem

I have dry skin and gave up powder foundation and am searching for a good, natural looking, liquid foundation. This one isnt bad. It definitely isnt drying; my skin feels very soft after wearing it. I have sensitive, combination skin and after a couple of weeks there is no irritation or breakouts, which is great (Definitely not recommended for oily skin though). The problem is it is a little difficult to apply. Apply sparingly! Use too much and it looks cakey, streaky, and obvious and can sit unnaturally on the skin. I have to use a foundation brush, as a sponge or fingers didnt work at all with this foundation. If you use a small amount and carefuly work in with a brush you can get a nice result. It is sheer coverage and not buildable. Also, the lightest shade is not really a colour match for my very fair skin and it tends to oxidize, going darker throughout the day. I would probably not repurchase, and instead will continue my search.

I have bought this twice now. I have acne-prone skin, being seventeen and all. This is nice because it doesn't look like I am wearing makeup, but it still covers up redness from acne and makes my skin look healthy and frankly really pretty. I used to use covergirl true match, but it was super orange even in the palest shades and this can actually match pale skin. It is also super lightweight and doesn't crack on my laugh lines, i smile a lot, i don't have laugh line wrinkles but when i smiled with covergirl, cracks would form in that area, which was unattractive. I really like this foundation. I could stand to have a little more coverage, and on my nose and chin it tends to wear off since those areas tend to be oily on my face. Overall I like it a lot.

I do not like this foundation at all!
-The color 120 Ivory does match my skin
-Looks dewy (almost greasy on my extremly oily skin
-Does NOT cover at all! ://
-It also broke me out. :/
I would say that if you do not need a lot of coverage, have dry, normal or combo skin this make work for you. I will not be repurchasing this foundation!

I did quite enjoy this foundation, although it's not my holy grail or even one of my favorites. It did it's job, and left my skin healthy looking with a nice glow to it. I actually didn't purchase this myself, it was a gift from my mother. Typically, these aren't the types of foundations I gravitate towards because this isn't the type of coverage I like for my acne-prone skin. I need more coverage, but I did use all of the bottle because if you work at it it's quite buildable it just takes time, and I felt that it had good staying power if you set it and was lightweight. For someone who wants a natural, lighter coverage foundation this would probably be a holy grail, although for me I view it as more of a mediocre foundation because it's not what I like for my level of coverage.

I've usually only used tinted moisturizer but I decided I wanted a little more coverage so I decided to give this a try. I love it! It gives a great natural finish to the skin, doesn't make me break out and doesn't settle into creases or fine lines. It's also a fantastic price, though I'd be willing to pay a bit more if they added a pump. I thought I'd need the lightest shade but it was a bit pink for me so I use it in Buff 140. This is definitely my HG foundation!

Ok I only put this on a few hours ago, but I'm loving it! I don't typically wear foundations, normally just concealer or a homemade tinted moisturizer by mixing concealer with moisturizer. I bought this to mainly make a tinted moisturizer, however, I wanted to see how this performed so I'm wearing it as a straight-up foundation right now.
My skin is fair with freckles and I have a lightly ruddy complexion. I wanted something that would even the ruddiness but would let my freckles shine through at the same time (why girls want to erase theirs away? I have no idea). I don't really have acne in general (but I am prone to break outs due to the wrong products or oily stuff), so I can't comment on how it performs with that kind of skin issue. It did cover the blackheads on my nose and the large pores on my cheeks well. But, this didn't cover my small broken capillary, my small surgical scar, or my under eye circles, but that's ok - that's what concealer is for. Besides those three imperfections, my skin overall is ok and I prefer to use concealer on those things than to have heavy coverage all over my whole face.
I'm prone to oiliness and this isn't feeling oily at all (I'm prone to dryness, too, during the winter - I have sensitive skin). It feels rather nice and light, in fact. Not dry, not oily. I did lightly set it with Rimmel's Stay Matte translucent powder, so that could be affecting it (I recommend this powder, by the way).
I have cool undertones and I bought Ivory. In the bottle it is lighter than my face but it turned out to be a very good match. I did rub it into my jawline and onto my chest before buying, this was the only shade in the line that didn't look too dark or orange on me.
There you have it. I recommend this for people who want a natural, sheer coverage. I'm only giving it 4 instead of 5 because I have yet to use it for more than a day, but this is my initial reaction to it. If it turns out to be crap I will come back and edit my review.
