This is a wonderful addition to my foundation 'wardrobe' - I find it really flattering and makes my skin look amazing, but if my skin is particularly bad on some days then I'd stay away and go for a foundation with more coverage as this isn't too strong in that respect. Its so light-weight that it feels like no makeup, especially when put on over a light moisturiser - probably best suited for daytime but I would have no problem with this one for a night out as I hate feeling plastered. B10 is perfect for my skin and I never look washed out with it on. The smell is lovely too! I used to use the shiseido dual balancing foundation in the lightest shade (001/100/00I or something like that) but its no longer stocked where I live, or so the SA has me convinced, and I would say this is an excellent replacement only with a slightly more dewy finish.

I tried this foundation in B10. From the 1st time I tried it, I found it to be one of the best foundations I have tried so far -and I've tried quite a few! Like other reviewers mentioned, it s great for dry-dehydrated skin like mine. Very natural and dewy look, no flakes at all, and application is just so easy. Will definitely buy again, and even though it is expensive, I think it is worth every penny!

Finally a foundation that goes on smoothly and effortlessly and looks great throughout the day in any weather! This foundation does not smell funky, nor does it magnify my skin imperfections. I'm happy!

I did just repurchase this again so that question I can answer with yes, I have dry skin and this just glides on and leaves a dewy finish which is much needed for most dry skin types. I'm also eczema senstive and did not notice any irritation from this foundation. It comes in a luxurious glass bottle with a gold cap and the pump works great! I use 1-2 pumps for my whole face and I love to apply it with the RT Expert Face brush for a flawless finish. I don't have any problems with the staying power I think it's average to normal but I would only recommend this foundation for dry and normal skin types anyway. I gave one lippie off because of the color range, although there are allot of colors available I do think that the color selection is not that great! I have light-medium skin with golden yellow undertones and I use this in BD50 which is great in the summer but can be a little bit to dark in colder seasons. If you go one shade down it's a huge difference the BD40 is much lighter then BD50 and to light for me! I think I'm about NC-30 for reference: MAC F&B C3, Bobbi Brown 3.5 Warm Beige, Biotherm 330.

So, i managed to score this foundation from my mom- who is a makeup junkie like me. So she wilk buy something, use it once... and then give it to me (even if she loves it), because she is always wanting the new, improved and different products. This foundation I would say gives medium-full coverage, but still maintains a light, and sheer-soft feeling, which i absolutely love. It never gets cakey or makes me feel like I am wearing a mask... With that being said, there are a few things i disliked with this foundation. First is the price. Now I paid nothing for this foundation because my mom gave it to me... but its the worst feeling ever when you try a product that you like, but its so expensive- you cant justify spending the money. I will pay nearly any amount for my HG products- but this was not one of them. Another issue I had with this foundation was its ability to the look flattering on my combination skin. Even after my moisturizers, serums and primers- this foundation still looks so gross on any dry patches of skin. So if you have dry skin, year round that is pretty hard to manage- i would stay far away from this foundation. I will probably skip this product when I run out, because its not perfect for me. It was fun to try, and have on hand... but I cant justify spending the money on a product that i'm not in love with!

I love this foundation! It makes my skin look amazing and luminous. It feels great on my skin and doesn't break me out either! Definitely will repurchase :)

I thought Bobbi had my back - but, on a lark, I tried a sample of this. Three days later I was purchasing a full size and 6 months later I'm still in love. This is my new HG (it was the BB Extra Foundation). It smells divine, gives me medium coverage that is buildable if required, makes me look photoshopped.

I'm not sure about the stay power - initially, it wasn't that great but I either have gotten used to it or have worked my problem out because it seems fine. Surely by the end of a long day, it's somewhat faded but that is normal for all product. But when fresh, and for a good many hours thereafter, this makes me look as good as I can.

Usually a Bobbi Brown 2 (Sand), I took a BD20 in this - it's slightly warmer than the others and gave me a healthier glow. I could carry either the B20 or the B(D)10 range as well. This foundation has a "broader range" of colors we can work with but there will always be one that works best. I do not use a primer, and have had bad experience with shifting. I'm fine with a good SPF that doubles as a primer under this. EIther the Chanel spf 50 or the Neutrogena liquid sheer. No interaction. Foundation goes on and stays on.

I apply with the beautyblender. I find this adds to the airbrush effect.

There is very little bad I can say about this foundation. Maybe that it would last longer but it seems to last well enough compared to other not specifically long wearing formulas out there. When I went back on a day to my Bobbi Brown, I even noticed that the BB previous HG had gone patchy towards the end of the day. This doesn't do that. It stays even, it's dewy. It's just great.

WOW! This is amazing. This is awesome for my dry skin as it doesn't show any of my dry patches and glides on perfectly. Light coverage but can be built to light/medium. This is honestly one of my favourite foundations. B10 is a great match for my neutral/slightly yellow toned pale skin. So light and lovely and lasts well on me without powder which is always a plus. I think this would work well on dry - normal - to combination skin. Not sure how it would play out on an oily skin but I think it may slide off quite easily. Quite expensive but totally worth it - what else would you expect from YSL eh? If you are contemplating buying this, grab a tester as it is definitely worth a try as you may find your new HG foundation like me!

Absolutely my favorite foundation these days.

Consistency is perfect (for me). I believe this is a gel formula. Spreads easily and evenly with brush or fingertips. Easily buildable, with no caking. Does not dry so quickly that you have to work fast, yet does not leave a tacky finish. Good coverage--not heavy/super-full, but also not as light as something like Bobbi Brown Skin. Neither matte nor overly "dewy" (i.e. greasy), this has a what I would call a healthy, natural finish. Slightly radiant, but without the shimmery particles that make my pores look twice their size. Takes various types/finishes of powders well (YSL Poudre Compacte, Guerlain Meteorites, MAC Blot, Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder, Hourglass Ambient Lighting). A little shine on nose at midday, but I have that with any foundation. No oxidizing. No settling into lines (I have lots). Blush stays put and does not change color over this. BD 40 is a very nice match for my MAC NC30(ish), Bobbi Brown Natural, NARS Punjab complexion. Love it.
