I have never received such glowing reviews on my skin as when I wear this product.

Even the gal at the Guerlain counter asked me what I was wearing - and this product costs mucho bucks less than what she was trying to sell me.

This is DA BOMB of foundations, I first read a review in a mag by a derm and that lead me to try it - it was on sale - I was sceptical - but I'm a convert.

HOWEVER I have heard lately that despite claims to the contrary, L'oreal might indeed test on animals, in which case, like it or not, I'll throw this product in the trash where it would belong, in that case. I've put a call into PETA to find out.

This is just a nice basic foundation for me. I use W3 which is just right for my skintone. This can go on light to medium coverage and has a little bit of shimmer to it. I could do without but at least it doesnt make my face look like a shiny mess. I like that it lessens the redness in my face and the SPF is a plus. My only gripe is that if you skin is a little dry, this stuff can point it out. Yet, that seems to be the case for all foundations for me,

I have been using W2, which is a shade or two too light for me, but nonetheless it is a decent drug store foundation. I appreciate that this line has a lot of yellow-toned shades as opposed to pink tone shades that look horrible on me. The things I don't appreciate are the fact that the makeup really isn't all that blendable and I hate the fact that there is shimmer in the fomula. On my face It looks shiny and makes me want to add extra mattifying powder to tone it down. I'd probably buy this again if it came in a totally matte formula or semi-matte, but definitely not shimmer.

Well this is one of the very few drugstore foundations which has a wide variety of shades for people who don't have pink undertones. I am NC 40-42 and N6 matches me quite well. Also it has SPF 17, and this along with Lóreal Bare Naturale powder (which has SPF 19), I don't need to wear a seperate sunscreen underneath. Most sunscreens leave a white cast on my face, so I don't like wearing them. Also both of these have physical sunscreen, TiO2. I use retinoids, so it is very necessary for me to wear sunscreen. Overall I am happy with this foundation.

The thing with this foundation that is definitely worth mentioning before I start bashing it, is that it is one of the few that did not cause me to break out and it's color selection is amazing. I rarely find a foundation that is my color. On top of that it's affordable and the coverage is fairly good.
However, aside from that the lasting power is less than a couple of hours. The texture isn't nice and it sets in my pores making it only obvious that I wear (a very bad) foundation. I won't buy it again, but it's cheap enough to give it a go for other users.

Just some background: My skin is weird. It's combination, but I've never had problems with oil or anything like that. I rarely break out in earnest, but I usually have a few bumps here and there. Also, I have varying skin tones. It's a shade or two darker near my hairline and in the parentheses around my mouth, and a shade or two lighter near the apples of my cheeks. So it's just hours of fun trying to find a foundation that's not too light or too dark.

. When I first got this, I was pleasantly surprised. It matched my skin perfectly, and I looked like I wasn't wearing any foundation while it evened my skin closer to one tone, which was awesome. I got the pressed powder and concealer in addition to the foundation.

I put it on in the morning before work and everything seemed fine. When I got out to my car at 5, I was utterly mortified. My face was a oil spill.
It was horribly shiny. It had transferred on to everything I touched, so there were blotchy spots on my cheeks. it had settled in to lines I didn't even know I had and accentuated any stray bump. It was, in a word, disgusting.

This is my HG foundation. I wear the N2 or classic ivory. It evens out my skin tone very well and gives a nice matte finish that's not too dense. It's very easy to blend and looks like my own skin, only better.

I'm in a shade W6- sun beige (NC35) and the shades are definitely TRUE to MATCH. This foundation is my face in a bottle, its absolutely crazy! My problem areas are my cheeks because I have acne scarring from my teenage years which has faded over the time. I don't need much, a little bit goes a LONG way. This foundation can cake up on you when using the wrong tools. I first used a universal face brush and it was streaking and took forever to blend away but using a stippling brush, the finish is PERFECT. This foundation I would say is light to medium coverage but it is very buildable.

PROS: I like this product because it has various colors to blend with the many different skin tones out there. Even as the seasons change, I always find the perfect matching tone for my skin all year around. Super easy to blend, very smooth & natural looking finish. Coverage is amazing, even when I got burned it covered the darkest spot on my face which was pretty dark. I like to use the powder in this same product to finish the natural & clean look. The price is very affordable, & the package is ok but yes it would be less messier & more convienant with a pump instead. Does not break your skin out unless you don't wash your face at least once daily. If you have dry to normal skin, I would definately recommend this product to you.

CONS: For me, I have super oily skin & I've had lots of trouble finding something that controls just that. This is ok for the first maybe 2hours max. Even when I finish it with the powder, not many hours later I look in the mirror & I have an oily shine that I just hate touching up every 2 hours. It does get everywhere if you aren't careful. It always stains my boyfriend's collar when we hug , even hours after it has already dried. If you have oily skin, I do not recommend this product to you.

I will continue to buy this product until I find something that works just as well minus the oily effect.

So far, this is the first foundation that doesn't make my pores look huge on my upper cheeks. I have large pores, and most foundations accentuate them, but not this one! I love it. I like the thin consistency because it still looks like skin as opposed to a mask of makeup!
