I really couldn't decide If I should rate this a 1 or a 2. I erred up to a two because if you have really fantastic well balanced skin, this could work for you. First, I found it difficult to apply. I tried the 187 stippling, and a kabuki brush. The application wasn't very easy with either of these, but the kabuki compounds the difficulty because it's hard to get it onto the brush. I'm thinking you have to use your fingers or possibly a sponge to put in on well. When I finally got it on and blended, it looked decent for less than an hour before I started to look like melty mess. Absolutely not for oily skin.

This is a great product for the price. I have used every foundation on my acne-prone, big-pored skin, including Chanel,, Bobbie Brown, DHC, Jane Iredale, the works. Nothing has ever been fantastic, but some better than others. This works as well as the expensive brands. It covers well, has a nice texture, and leaves a soft, matte, finish. The only problem I have with it is that it seems to disappear as the day goes on, and if I wear it everyday, I notice a few more blemishes.

Sensitive skin folks, BEWARE. I broke out from this shortly after application, the ingredients are pretty harsh! It's also hard to blend, so I definitely don't recommend this.

I was sooo excited to try this product out and I was beyond disappointed when it didn't work for me. It melted off my face by noon, and it totally clogged my pores and made me have cystic zits all over my cheeks. I also did not appreciate the fact that although it didn't look it, my face ended up looking 'ghostly' in pictures that had a flash. I liked applying it though. I liked the texture... but that's just about it. Cannot and will not buy this again.

I've never had a foundation with this consistency before. It really feels like a lightweight mousse.
>If you are looking for heavy coverage, then this is not the foundation for you. If you are looking for a foundation that covers a bit more than tinted moisturizer, then this is the foundation for you.
>I am fair and Asian so I bought the Porcelain Ivory shade. It is very blendable and feels like I'm not wearing foundation at all. >
>The price good for what you get, especially with the Buy one get one 50% off sales. $8.49 reg price

Don't expect this to be comparable to a high end foundation though. My fave foundations are still MUFE HD, NARS Sheer Glow, and Chanel Lumiere

I always come back to this product, its really easy to apply, and stays on for a really long time. It gives you a flawless skin look. Dream Matte Mousse also covers really light, and really well, the consistency is so different from others, and its just like spreading light fluffy cream onto your face without the sticky part. I love it so much, I always have this with me.

-light, full coverage
-easy to apply
-compact container

-Leaves streaks if the color doesnt match your skin too well
-TOO MUCH can result in the cakey look, but youve got to learn not to pile it on

Hrmph. I thought I was on to something and had FINALLY found my perfect summer foundation. WRONG! For a while, it wasn't too bad- granted it made my nose even oilier than usual and I couldn't re-apply very well without making my face look red. Then I started breaking out- at first I thought it was hormones, but it turns out other women share this problem too. The concept is nice, and it feels great when you first put it on, but after a couple of hours it just sucks. It's made me break out, and doesn't help with oil at all. I still have some of the pot left, I only use it under my eyes and around my lips for when I apply lipstick/eyeliner. Otherwise I will not be buying again.

Hmmm...what to say about this one...well for starters, it covers okay, and blends great, but it TOTALLY rubs off. It's amazing how well this stuff will totally transfer to any surface, like you don't even have to rub, just press a tissue against your forehead and you'll have a perfect square of foundation on the tissue. And if its not rubbing off your face, it'll totally be sliding off by itself around 9 a.m. HORRIBLE!!!!!
