I love that they have so many shades to offer because i just want a very natural even skin look. This foundation is great for that. Its generally pretty easy to blend, the finish is good, and the whole application aspect is good. However the wearing is what made me take lippies off. (I have oily skin in my t-zone, i apply this at about 7 Am, set with powder and dont do any touch ups during my 6-7 hour day.) This Foundation does not last, my oil comes right through and IT TRANSFERS SO BAD. Transferring is a big deal for me cuz with changeing out for gym, putting jackets on, blowing my nose etc it all just rubs off. I would touch up but this is just not practical for me. Believe me i would spend hours in the bathroom if i could but i just dont have time for such a high matenence foundation. It it also expensive for a drugstore fdn and i wish it had a pump. If it lasted, helped with my oilyness, and didnt transfer this would be a great foundation. So if you have hours a day to touch up and fix all the rubbed off parts then maybe give this a try.

Well this used to be my HG foundation..
I don't use products tested on animals so I found a cheaper and way better foundation (Almay) anyways...
I have tried this in W2 and N2, W2 is a better match tho.
The reason why this foundation is everywhere is because it comes in so many shades..but Formula-wise it's ho-hum and i dont think its worth the almost $20 I paid for it.
This is very drying and attaches to dry spots and may make your skin look sort of..chalky..
As well they've changed the formula and I feel it's too sheer. I dont have that bad of skin and i felt it wasnt enough coverage. The formula is too liquidy and it CREASES!!! like no tomorrow...
The packaging is messy and its also glass so you end up wasting a lot at the end.

this foundation is really disappointing because the color match is SO good. i am very pale with slight...oliveish...undertones and it is almost impossible to find a good color match in terms of concealer and foundation. everything is either too pink or too yellow. N1 in this foundation matched me perfectly tho - blended right into my skin with no obvious lines or streaks. it also felt natural on my face - not heavy at all.
the factors that killed it for me with this stuff are as follows -
1. it is not hydrating whatsoever. in fact, it emphasized any slight dry patch i had on my face and i believe may have even created new ones.
2. the finish is dull and matte & chalky looking. not flattering.
3. it literally disappears after an hour of wearing it. i don't need or expect a foundation to last endlessly, but it seriously looked good/decent enough for about 45 minutes after applying it and then. bam. nothing.

it's really too bad, because the color selection is pretty bomb. if only they'd change the formula....

i bought this foundation because i was tired of foundations that sort of match my skin but didn't look right because of the undertone. i have light skin with freckles and i'm a little more towards the warm side. it's hard for me to identify the color of my skin in foundations so i thought that the best bet would be to compare the lighter colors with the different undertones and see which one would match best. the neutral one was still on the pink-whitish side, and the warmer one was a tad too yellow, but i bought it anyway thinking that in the drugstore the matches look differently in florescent lighting... and also worse comes to worst i can mix the warm foundation with some of my old foundations and customize a shade. the product looked promising and i was excited about the large selection of shades. i thought i'd fine my HG foundation finally! but i was wrong...
the foundation was fine in terms of application... the coverage is really sheer but somewhat buildable, so i thought that i'll be able to work with it. the packaging is annoying - i wish it had a pump. without one i just end up pouring so much product that goes to waste...oh... and it's too liquidy...
my biggest issue is what happens to the foundation after an hour or two... it creases and becomes greasy, and droplets start melting off your face (for references, i did set the foundation with powder and finishing powder... the ones i always use and had no problems with). it wasn't a hot day and i wasn't sweaty so what did that happen? must be a problem with the formula. this really ruined it for me...
the price is also high for drugstore foundations...
loreal- please step it up.

First day I used this product I was in love, however every application after that no so much. Doesn't stay on for long or cover well. But the colour match system is good.

Really blendable(seriously it was so satisfying to smooth it over my face), but not a whole lot of coverage(sheer is good for some people!) and it's kind of a dull matt finish, nothing breath-taking. Great range of colours though, they even had my super-fair-yellowish-ivory-porcelain-neutral-white colour, and the effect you get for the price you pay really lifts the overall rating for me.

The color matched well, and the foundation blended well, but after a few hours it really emphasized my pores, and my skin looked greasy. I still have a lot of oil in my T-zone - maybe if your skin is drier it would work well. I'm sticking with Clinique Superbalanced.

It's alright I guess... I didn't have any problems with it, but when it gets down to the bottom it can be kind of tricky to get out without spilling it somehow. Perhaps I'm just a klutz, who knows. Anyway, I thought this was a good foundation in terms of lighter coverage. Nothing really stood out.
