LOVE this foundation. Have tried many MANY others (Lancome, EsteeLauder, Maybelline, Almay, several Clinique, MakeUpForEver, and Bare Escentuals) and after using MK med coverage I can't stand the feel of any other foundation on my face. It covers my mild rosacea, stays fresh looking and feeling for at least 6 hours, is not sticky ever, I never need to touch up or de-shine, and is non-transferable. I didn't want to like MK, have fought it for 2 years, but it's the only line I like every product in.

This product sounded perfect for my skin type, and it did provide good coverage but after an hour of application it went streaky and appeared blotchy. I set my foundation with a clear powder, however it still did not prevent this. It felt heavy and I didn't like the consistency of the liquid either.

This is the only liquid foundation that covers my acne scars without causing breakouts or clogging pores. Someone on the board said this is the "safest" liquid out there. I even used it on my wedding day and my skin looked flawless. I use it in Ivory 200 which matches my NC20 skin perfectly. A friend of mine quit selling MK and was overstocked on product, so she sold me 3 tubes for $5 each which should last a while. I will continue to purchase this after I run out of HG here!!!!!

Normally, I use EDM Intensive formula foundation but on warm days I like using a liquid, as mineral makeup tends to look cakey when I sweat, so I turn to this.

For the record, I have combo/sensitive/acne-prone skin and this doesn't irritae it at all! Dries to a semi-matte finish without drying me out. Wonderful!

This stuff gives me exactly the coverage I want-- not super heavy, but enough so I can hide those not-so-great skin days with no problem. It blends really well, covers my dark circles without looking like I'm trying too hard, and actually does a pretty good job of covering individual blemishes and what not. My Mary Kay lady got my color right on, which made a huge difference (I'd been using a not-quite-right color for some time), and now I get my refills on ebay for fairly cheap. This is my favorite foundation.

Ivory 200 matched my nc20 skin fine. Gave medium coverage but not as much as mac. But it my face is really broke up at the moment and don't think any amount of makeup could cover my blimishes right now. More afforible because I got it on ebay. WILL BUY AGAIN. NICE SMOOTH SILKY FEELING! AND THEY DON"T DO ANIMAL TESTING

This is my HG foundation. It is a liquid, but has a good feel to it--not too runny or thick. No streaking, and it dries with a light porcelain finish and makes my pores appear nearly invisible. You don't need to use a whole lot, and overuse will begin to look cakey and chalky. It evens out color nicely as well, and does not irritate my sensitive skin.

I have recieved the most compliments on my skin when I wear this, including my dental hygienist who says that under the bright lights, hardly anyone's skin looks as nice as mine did. So after that, I've been sold.

This is a pretty good foundation. My Mary Kay rep got my foundation color spot-on, so it goes on and you can barely see it, but it evens things out nicely, too. It's not drippy or goopy, it does really well over concealer, and a little bit goes a long way, which is good, considering the price tag made my eyes water.

I have used MK's full coverage foundation for years but it was just starting to wear heavy on me. I decided to try this based on the reviews here. I always put on sunscreen first and this foundation blended well with four different brands and did not become clumpy after applying. You apply sparingly so the tube will last a long time. Thank you Mary Kay for putting this product in a plastic tube instead of glass for us clumsy women in the morning. Update: I became a little tired of how thick this base was even when applied with lotion. Still on the hunt for something a little less conspicuous.

I am surprised to say I love this foundation! I have used Revlon Colorstay for probably 10 years. I went to a party for a friend and bought this to help her out. I didn't even try it for a couple of months. When I ran out of Colorstay I thought I would try it. I love the coverage. It stays all day and is more blendable on my skin than Colorstay. I also think my skin is clearer. I will definitely repurchase. The only issue is having to buy from a rep which isn't always convenient for me.

Love it love it love it..Stays the same color all day without darkening. Weightless..feels like I have nothing on. Unlike Mac which some people swear by..this actually works. Goes on so smooth and blends easily. Doesn't cake..I mean..what more can I say. Its perfect for me and I'm extremely picky about what I put on my face. You should try it..I'm sure you'll love it.
