So far, this is A DREAM. I purchased this yesterday in color W1, and I was very happy to find something for somebody as fair as I am. The color match is unbelievable, it's perfect.
The makeup itself went on like a dream, I used a primer underneath though, so I can't say how it would be without one. The coverage is medium but a good medium, I would say and I didn't even need a concealer! The coverage is absolutely buildable so it won't cake. I finished it off with some transculent powder and it still stays on like a dream, although I have an oily t-zone and normally have to be very careful with new makeup.

I can absolutely recommend this to anybody, there's a wide range of colors too. The only complaint I have is the glass bottle which would maybe easy to break. A plastic one with a pump would be so much easier.

i have dry skin with BAD hyper pigmentation (acne scaring) & this covered everything completely when applied with a flat top kabuki brush. some claimed it didn't cover anything but honestly it depends on application technique. just remember to exfoliate & moisturize before applying this foundation. the first foundation ever to keep my skin clear & i tried so many from drugstore to high end. i use a pump i purchased from mac for 6 dollars & it fit perfectly. usually people with bad skin like me tend to use thick heavy foundations which make skin worst but this is super light & it covers like a charm. it stays put for 10+ hours. I'm on my 3rd bottle. I'm using W6 in this foundation & for MAC I'm an NC42. hope this helps. the foundation in the bottle has a slight sheen in the foundation like tiny specks but its not chunks of glitter so people need to chill.. there's no noticeable glitter to me even in the sunlight. top it off with a powder & you'll be fine =)

I LOVE this makeup..it covers well and is my exact shade (w5 sand beige) my only complaint is it kinda makes my skin appear oily, i have very oily acne prone skin. it does not break me out but at the same time i get too much shine even with the formula for oily/combo skin. thats why i took one star off, besides that i love this foundation, i tried many high end foundations and this one tops them all.

This is the ONLY drugstore foundation that has a color light enough for my super fair skin (I use W1). I really like this foundation but do not like the packaging. I wish they would put it in a pump bottle. I may go back to a department store brand one of these days but for now I'm happy with this one. I will say that it doesn't look as good if my cheeks are too dry though so I'd recommend using a good moisturizer in conjunction with this foundation if you have dry skin.

I haven't bought a foundation in so long so I thought I should give this brand a try. For a couple years now I have been really sketchy on trying to find a decent foundation because we all know that there are some pretty crappy foundations out there. After watching Michelle Pham's youtube drugstore foundation reviews and reading a lot of reviews on this website I thought I should try this brand. I was really surprised about this foundation. I found my shade instantly because there was a little chart that helps find the perfect shade for you. I was hesitant to use this foundation out in the sun since I was scared the color will oxidize (meaning you will turn orange...ugh). But I was pleasantly surprised that this wasn't the case or my face will look like it's melting when it gets really hot. Especially now since it's the summer I haven't had any problems when I wear out during the day time. And a plus it has a built in sunscreen (SPF 17). And let me tell you I have a naturally oily face that bugs that crap out of me because I always have to blot, a pretty sweaty t-zone, and my face is prone to breaking out when it doesn't like something. Whatever foundation that conquers those flaws is alright in my book, which this foundation did! After my first time trying it I was praying so hard that I wouldn't break out at the end of the night and I am happy to say it didn't! Also true to its word that it is super blendable and gives a really nice clean/natural look. The only thing I hate about this product is its package. THERE SHOULD BE A PUMP!!! But sadly there isn't one and you always have to be careful not to pour too much out of the jar. All foundations should have a pump, it would make putting on makeup just a little bit easier and cleaner. I bought my shade in W2 light ivory if that makes a difference :] I have put my two cents in and I hope everybody found this review helpful!!

I love this simply because of the option of neutral shades! I have fair neutral skin so most foundations are:

-too orange
-too pink
-too dark

Like Rimmel for instance has nice foundation but they never have a shade light enough for me!! :(

With this foundation I was able to find my perfect shade! And it blends out easily too. Has a matte finish, I like to mix in a little moisturizer because I like a dewy finish.

Packaging quality went down because no pump. Every foundation should have a pump. >:(

I have used this foundation several times after buying it a couple of weeks ago, and every time I use it I get little break outs around my mouth. It also feels very waxy on my skin.

Other than those things, I really liked how it looked on my skin and think it's great that it has a sunscreen in it. However, I do not like the packaging, as you can't easily control how much comes out. It was also a great shade, as I haven't had much success in finding neutral ivory tones in drugstore foundations.

Overall, I would not buy again.

I'm going to start off by saying, yes, I would buy this product again, only because I've gone to it when all else fails since high school.
I see a lot of mixed reviews. Personally, I am very fair, pretty dry, and uneven toned. Circles are always a B%^&! to deal with.
This is one of a very select few foundations that actually does match my ghostly skin tone. And I don't just say that because it's sheer. I would actually go so far as to say it's medium-buildable for me. Why other people aren't getting this, I don't know. Maybe it's a dry skin thing. I also use primer before applying.
I use my fingers, nothing fancy, and after a layer or two I'm good to go. It doesn't feel too wet or sticky on my face either. I don't have to sit there and not touch my face while I'm irritated and waiting for it to dry.
If it's settled with a powder, it lasts MUCH longer I've found. I put maybelline's dream matte powder on with an every-day average kabuki brush and it doubles the wear time. Without powder, I'll say it's about 4 hours, but with powder it can be 8, perhaps more.

It's a pretty "dry" liquid foundation...if that makes sense?
I would only wear this in the summer.
Honestly my biggest bugaboo with this product is the packaging. I like the small chemist type bottle style, but it can really pour out if you're not careful. there's no pump. It's also a bit delicate. I've had a bottle bust in my purse before. No fun. But other than that, the product itself is good. There's a reason it's been around for so long.

I am so-so with this product. I bought this because I wanted to start using liquid foundation so that I would not have to pile on my concealer anymore (I have some acne scarring). I bought this because well, it truly matched my skin. It is very rare for me to find a concealer or foundation to totally match my skintone.I am kinda on the edge of fair and medium, kinda yellow but not totally yellow, warm but with some coolness and I have a slight olive tinge. So get it, kinda complicated. This is the first foundation that really disappeared on my skin, without making me look like my face has a white or orange mask on.I got the color G3 Golden Biege, I think this only available in Asia or something because from what I know in U. S. it is only available in W, N, and C. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Pros:
-Perfect match with my skin.
-Covers imperfections fairly well, though not totally, but enough to lessen the need to pile up on concealer.
-Glides and blends easily on the skin.
-The packaging here still has a pump which makes things neat and easy.
Cons:
-Does not really stay on too long.
-Not perfect for oily skin.
-Sometimes it can accentuate pores and can make you look greasy.

I am still on the fence on whether or not I will buy this again, I love how it fits my color perfectly, but it does not do anything for my oily skin. I'll probably repurchase until I find a foundation that matches my skintone and controls my oiliness better.
