I was once again spurred on by all the great reveiws and went out to buy this foundation for the SECOND time ( This a couple of years ago was my first foundation, i used it for a while, then i must have chucked it) I though i might try it again because skin changes, and when i first tried it i really had no clue about make up! Anywayy .....

I found it very drying and and made my face feel gross. It clogged up my pores. It clung to spots and made them more noticeable. I really didnt like the matte finish, it just made me look ill.
( i have now realised i dont like a 'matte' finish, and will stay away from 'matte' products)

Wow. Basically, this is my HG foundation. Usually drugstore foundations have really pink undertones, but this was just perfect, it was like a second layer of skin! I use medium 4, and its just amazing. I have very oily skin, and live in humid conditions, and when I put this on, feel like I have on ... well nothing? And by the end of the day, my makeup was exactly the way it was, other than a bit of oilyness on my face, but your bound to get it if you have really oily skin, gives a pretty matte finish, makes my acne scarred face look flawless .. yeahp. Perfeeeeect :D
Ps. The price is a little too high for me though, 21.95 AUD.

I love it...the texture is very..delicious it has a great texture it's an heavy covergae ,but this is what I was looking for when I bought it ! it's pretty expensive thought.
I will buy it again if I ahve a discount cause 13 euros for a drugstore small concealer is too much !

This product was a no-go for me, as I have very dry skin. It felt way too dry and was difficult to blend. It seemed cakey and very unnatural once I got it on. Would not repurchase.

The first time I tried this product, a long time ago, I had picked out the wrong color, so I didn't like it, and just forgot about this. Then recently, I bought a new shade, and it's the perfect match. Now that I have the right shade, I love this stuff. It covers well, you definitely don't need a lot, it's buildable coverage if you need more. Seriously, put on a tiny amount at a time, people have been complaining about this balling up when applying it, that's because you're using too much! The finish is's airbrushed with a matte/velvety finish. If you have dry skin, you'll need to exfoliate, and moisturize well to make this not look bad on you. I use a regular flat foundation brush to apply this, and it works very well. A lot of people are complaining about the staying power of this, but if you use a primer, it lasts forever. I use the Smashbox photofinish primer, and that helps with this last all day, as well as making this look more airbrushed and natural. I also use the Urban Decay All nighter setting spray on top of this, and that helps as well. Love this stuff!

I love a matte finish, and this stuff is the only kind on the market in all price ranges that I have found that is a TRUE MATTE look. It stays on through lunch & if I go out after work, I do reapply & set with a matte powder.

I found the new Matte Powder by Rimmell to be great too.

I use the sand color and it's a perfect color for me,and I love the way it works. Better packaging would be nice, more of a pancake container style so you don't have to dig in with a make-up sponge to get it out when it' s getting low. I also using the coordinating powder to carry in my purse.

I have used this foundation for year and I think it's great when you're on a budget.
The coverage is good, it's easy to apply and it leaves a velvety finish, I don't think it's cakey at all.

The only problem is the lasting power: this foundation tends to transfer everywhere so at the end of the day you don't have much left on your face. This is actually the reason why I switched to another product, but I still have a backup of this one and when I just need a light makeup to get out a couple of hours, this does the trick.

I tried this product for about a week and then threw it away. I have oily skin and large pores and this product doesn't work well for me. My biggest complaint is that you can see it "cake" into your pores and that's not a good look.
