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.

I don't like the packaging, it's hard to use with a brush, and it either spills all over your hands or you only get a little bit. I bought the same color as my pressed powder from this line, which I love, but this, oh my. After I put this on it changes color. I put it on, it matches great, it dries, it turns about two shades darker. Not gonna buy it again. I was a shade n1.

I got this a long time ago, before they added the SPF to it. I used this product to cover up a pale patch of skin on my chin caused by vitiligo. Unfortunately, despite this being a thick product, it is fairly sheer, so it didn't cover up my pale skin very well. Also, after a couple days of using this it made my skin in that area break out. I will not be buying this again.

I have oily skin and by the time noon rolls around this stuff makes me look like I have dunked my face in a vat of cooking oil. When I first apply it in the morning it goes on so smoothly and looks great, the color blends in well and my complexion actually looks flawless. Unfortunately, by the time I get to work I look like a right mess.

This is my HG drugstore foundation. I'm in Mac studio fix NC 35, MUFE HD 127, and have this foundation in W4. I tried W5, but found it a bit pink and W6 might be too dark. Nonetheless, I like the slight yellow undertone, which is perfect for my Southeast Asian skin. This is something that I can use daily because it's so affordable. It goes on smooth and really does blend into your skin. I can use my fingers, a sponge, or a brush. Coverage is sheer to medium but you can definitely build. Staying power is average but a good primer and setting powder powder can fix that, especially for oily skins. I have oily skin so a primer is a must. The only downside is the glass bottle, which when exposed to heat or sun can alter the foundation color to something pink/orange, so be sure to purchase a bottle that hasn't been pampered with. I also wish it had a pump, but I remedied that by transferring it to a used-up mac foundation bottle with a pump, which I thoroughly cleaned and sterilized. Overall, this foundation is perfect and is the only foundation that I've purchased backups for.

This is simply just an "ok" foundation. But I don't consider it a foundation at all. It's such a sheer coverage, that I use this more as a tinted moisturizer if anything. And it looks utterly natural. I also use this to add to "heavier" foundations to give more of a loose feeling. It makes me oily after 4-5 hrs, which is a bummer. Shade range is a definate plus+ though. W1 evens out my pink undertones perfectly.

I used to love this, and I still think that it is on the right track, but there are a few minor problems.

Pros:
1. Matches perfectly
2.Blends great. I never had to take it down my neck or even cover my whole face because it was perfect.

Cons:
1. Limited coverage
2. Terrible around dry skin
3. I actually have terribly dry skin, but by the end of the day, my face would be covered with a nice shiny mat of oil.

I wasn't sure if it was getting oily because my skin was so dry it was overproducing oil, but I have just switched to a different product, and I am not having this problem.

I think this product would be excellent for someone who just wants to even out their skin tone. If it was lightly applied where you need coverage, and set with a good powder, it would be fine. But seeing as I need a little better than just "fine" I'm moving on to another product.

Needless to say however, I will keep the bottle, and try to use it up. It wasn't bad enough to want to eliminate it from existence. And not point in being wasteful.

Well... they advertise that it will match your skin tone perfectly, so I give it 1 lip for that, but holy guacamole this stuff is crap. It fooled me so bad, the bottle says oil free, won't make you break out, blah blah. It's super cakey no matter how much you apply. It made me break out. It isn't buildable, if you try and put a powder on to finish it, it gets even more cakey, and you can't put a concealer under it because it doesn't give enough coverage. Its quite expensive for the little bottle you get, ($10) and you'll never be able to get all of it out. I used this makeup 3 times and after that i just dumped it out and kept the glass bottles cause' they're so cute :) lols, oh and this doesn't really matter because i'm sure all liquid foundations would do this, but when i dumped it out, it clogged my sink (i know, i'm so stupid i should have done it in a trash can but i wasn't thinking) and i know it clogged my pores, and i don't know what they put in it but its very oil-like even though they claim it's oil free. i used nail polish remover, shampoo, and tooth paste to get it out of the drain and it took forever. Save your monies and try a different foundation, L'oreal should stick to hair products, not makeup.

I used this for 10 Days.

Pros:
- Easy to find a matching shade.
- Easy to apply/ blended well.
- Nice finish
- Lasted *most* of my work day without getting splotchy.
- Got a lot of compliments on my skin

Cons:
- No pump.
- After 6 days I started to notice small bumps clogged pores on the side of my face that was causing an uneven texture to my skin. I stopped using it for 2 days and my skin calmed down immediately.

I think I'll keep this for emergencies but, in the meantime, it's back to searching for a day to day ftdn.
