This product is definitely not for me but I think that it would be right for a lot of people. My sister swears by this and I did try some of hers but we are completely different skin tones. It is really light-weight on your skin and it blends evenly and it doesn't break you out. I went to the department store to get some in the right colour but i was really annoyed because none of them fitted my skin tone, I have brownish/bronzey kind of olive skin which is quite hard to find foundation for. So I would say this is probably good for people that have the right skintone as the colour match was the only problem.

Just started wearing foundation again after about 20 years. Wow, has it changed. I started out with the mineral foundations, but am not having much success.

I have pretty good skin (good genes, really). I'm currently 48 and my skin has become less oily and more normal as I've gotten older. This applies well with a sponge. It doesn't feel like it's clogging my pores. I prefer sheer coverage. Mostly I want to even my skin tone as I have redness around my nose and between my eyes.

This gives me a nice even finish, and my skin doesn't look too dry like it does with the powders. I think I had a coupon and waited until it was on sale so I suspect I didn't pay too much for it, and will definitely re-purchase.

I really like this foundation. Really nice texture, applies easily, blends well, stays on for a long time. Definitely my favourite drugstore foundation. Would and have repurchased again.

I bought this a while ago but didn't like the way it got über oily in a few hours so I stopped using it. But then I read somewhere that it makes a good eyeshadow base and it does :) I only gave it a 3 because it doesn't do what I bought it for

I love this product but I can see why others would not. I am 56 yrs. old, with lite scarring from a laser treatment gone wrong, some lite blotching, & large pores. I think it takes some practice to apply but I get great smooth coverage that looks natural. I use the Clean & Clear blue blotting papers to suck up oiliness during the day. If I still had the skin of an 18-30 yr old I wouldn't be using this makeup. It seems a little heavy for you young'uns.

So I liked the way this felt. It looked decent, I like as a makeup base.
But the colour selection is crap. No real pale colours, and the palest one is pure yellow. The second palest one (which is very dark for a 01 shade) has strong warm undertones.
1 for texture, 1 for staying power, and 1 coverage.
1 off for colour selection, and I don't like pots. Even though I know it can't be done another way, I wish it came with a spatula or something.

The best foundation I've ever had! Creamy and easy to apply. It's working wonders for me even though it doesn't stay all day and night long.

Good points:
-evens out the skin tone
-works well with conceler
-good for every day
-a little goes a long way
-colour matches my skin well
-my skin likes it i.e. no break outs, spots from using this

Bad points:
-Only stays on for about two hours, dont know where it dissappears to
-tends to sit in your pores sometimes (when they are open)
-doesnt takle shinyness too well.
-when you put this on, and then smile/make an expression ir whatever, sometimes you can see lines were your skin creased
-very light covereage

When you put this on, it makes you look like your not wearing any makeup. Which is sometimes a bad thing. Your skin still lookes kind of bad, but considerably better than before. The problem with my skin is that I have dark ares under my eyes, my chin, below my nose, above my eyes, and this foundation does an ok job at evening them out, but its not quite there. My skin normally doesnt have many spots (the odd one every once and a while) and my pores arnt that big. My skin used to be flawless but ever since I started using make up I have these bumps everywhere. Not too sure if its from the foundation though.

This foundation is very good for every day wear as it is light. I think its the best drug store brand actually.

I would not recommend this for going out somewhere, as it doesnt have very good coverage

At first when I started using this product I really liked it. I liked the texture and it gave a natural finish. I would say it gave a light to medium coverage. After using it for a while I found that it began to really dry out some areas of my skin and I started to break out in spots in the oily areas of my skin. For this reason I would not buy again.
