I really want to like this product. It seemed to be okay when I tried it at the counter but I later on found out that it only lasts on my face for a couple of hours. I love the powdery texture though but I wish that it would be longer lasting.

I have used this for two years now. At first I bought it just to try it out. AND : Success! It has a natural colour and blends well wiht my complexion. Wonderful texture and easy to apply. Like the pump bottle it comes in. Makes it easy to use.

When I first tried this on my hand, I didn't think I was going to like the texture. However, after wearing it, I love it! It gives a nice matte look that has lasted sll day so far on my combo-oily skin. The color match is excellent as well. I use creamy ivory and then bronzer over it to match the rest of me. Love the pump style container as well. A nice, affordable foundation that looks expensive (I usually have horrible luck with drugstore foundations-bad texture, wrong color, etc but not now!)

I should really know better than to believe hype. Being a try anything once kind of girl, i decided to swap my lasting performance for the lightest shade of this. I hated everything about it. Gritty, horrible texture and wears quickly. Not for me i'm afraid. But hey, it did give me a rather amusing bright orange shade to my face ! Hmmm okay ... if you like that sort of thing !!!

Nice, sheer coverage - I love the light mousse-like texture and it was easy to blend but it tended to emphasise the dry patches on my skin. It also turned greasy after a few hours on. I thought it was quite expensive for a drugstore foundation.

This is an excellent product. Price is great for the product. It goes on so silky smooth! It also has good coverage; does not break out the skin; covers brown spots. I use the Ivory and it matches my skin perfectly! The packaging is excellent - love the pump! I will purchase this again!

Love this, my HG now. I have been using it for over 3 months now. It sinks into your skin and there is never any tell-tale line of demarkation. It's so silky, light and blendable. It's a very light coverage - just enough to give a porcelain doll glow to your skin. Comes in a convenient and sanitary pump. It does not accentuate lines, dryness, etc. Perfect!

Available in seven fabulous shades, this sheer coverage foundation literally adapts to your skin tone. Its color-adapting particles match skin tone flawlessly, leaving no makeup line or the "mask" appearance that I abhor. For those care-free days, it is quite fabulous.

Overall grade: B

I'm a bit of a make-up addict, so after seeing all the fantastic hype about this foundation, had to try it!
Very disappointed with it. Colour matched me okay I guess but the finish of the foundation was, I found, very powdery and dried too quickly. Left an un-natural look which I don't like. Threw nearly a full bottle of this stuff away as really don't like it!

I am a complete foundation snob. Just the THOUGHT of buying a new foundation scares me as nothing ever seems to work for me ..and I HATE the feel of foundation on my face (yuck!). Just recently however, after running out of my Mary Kay foundation (that i've been loyal to for the past 5 years as I use to be a MK consultant) I decided to hit up Walmart for new foundation since I needed some immediately. After searching thru everything, I hesitantly bought this product ($10.00 is a lot for me to blow on a new foundation Im unsure of and cant even test).

However I can't say enough about how much I love this product! For one, the 2nd to lightest shade is actually perfect for me (and the undertones actually matches my skin). I've always been a fan of mousse foundations - and this one is a great texture. I dont need much (2 small blobs on my fingertip usually covers my face). It glides on VERY smoothly and I can't even feel it on my face afterwards! (a BIG plus in my books).. It has an extremly "fresh" feeling to it - and I catch myself running my fingers over my cheeks after applying it because of how much I love the way it makes my skin feel. Plus my skin tone is uneven - and it blends the tone together wonderfully!

However - the only thing I would suggest is that if you need "thick" full coverage this really wont do it. Its more just for "evening out" things. I have semidark undereye circles, and I get moderate acne break outs once a month - therefore I have to use a little extra concealer or otherwise the redness and blueness shows right thru.

For me, however, this is my "holy grail" foundation.. I absolutely love it and plan on sticking with it as long as they continue making it!
