I bought this product for about $11 at Walmart. It comes in a pump bottle that contains 1 fluid ounce. I like the pump a lot; about 3 pumps will cover my face and have enough left over to conceal blemishes. I have the lightest shade, simply called ivory. I love the colour, as I often have a difficult time finding a light enough shade in foundation. The undertone is more neutral, not quite pink but not quite yellow, which is nice. It does have a little flashback if you take a photograph with flash, so keep that in mind. It's a light-medium coverage, and not super build-able. It has a nice finish without powder, even with my oily skin it still looks more matte with a bit of glow. My biggest complaint with this product is that after you wash your face, you'll notice a very fine glitter on your face, even after you wash it again. I believe this is why it broke me out. Just to be sure it was the foundation, I stopped using it and my skin cleared up. I started to use it again, and sure enough, my skin broke back out. I won't buy this again, but I do think that people with less sensitive skin will react better with this product.

I read great things about this foundation and that it was perfect for hiding blemishes and made you look fresh and like a "photoshopped" version of yourself but I have to admit, I won't be using this on my skin again. It felt so heavy on my skin, and that was just with a small amount of product on my face! If you have oily or combination skin I would definitely stay away from this foundation as it will make you look very very greasy and shiny.. It also oxidised quite a bit on my face throughout the day. Overall, I woudnt recommend this, and won't be buying it again.

this is my all time favorite foundation. the coverage is great, it feels nice on the skin and stays put all day. I love the packaging, that's actually the main reason I bought it. buy I'm glad I did!

I am not overly impressed by it, I bought it, used it a few times, just feels heavy in my skin, and sits on top of my pores and lines...the choice of colors is real good but this isn't for me...
If you like heavy coverage you might like it!? I just think you need perfect skin with tbat one, it seems to amplify imperfections.

Sticks on every hair, sinks in every line and sparkles. The shimmer doesn't irritate me as much as the final look, hanging onto hair and in fine lines. I have tried a beauty blender, brush, my fingers and nothing has helped. Disappointed.

My most favourite of all. I tried hundreds of foundations before I got married from high street brands to high end department store ones as I chose to do my own make up on the day. This is by far the best on. I found that it was light enough for my skin but felt creamy once applied. It set nicely. It didn't look cakey or too overdone. I had read a lot about spfs in foundation causing a flash reflection in photographs but this didn't happen. It was ideal. It lasted all day. I use. This foundation everyday and even when I try something new I always come back to it. Xx

For a drugstore foundation, the price is average. For me, the foundation seemed "dry", It didn't go on very smooth. I need something with more moisture in it. I had a hard time determining the right shade, but that aside, I didn't care for the formulation. I prefer L'Oreal foundation to this.

I have been using this product for over a year now and love it. The coverage is generally excellent, unless you're towards the end of the bottle, in which case, as expected, it gets to be kind of light. It lasts all day with minimal shin. I generally have oily skin but when I use this product the appearance of oil tends to be much less, unless I used a heavy moisturizer beforehand. I am not a fan of the 'glitter/sparkles', however. I didn't even notice that this foundation had that until a couple of months ago after I washed my face and noticed it was still glistening. For me at least, taking off the makeup at the end of the day is very easy but getting the glitter off, not so much. But all in all it's a great product! I need a lot of coverage, three-ish pumps a day, and the package will still last me over a month, which is a great deal in my opinion! I would recommend to anyone who wants great coverage that'll last all day!

i purchased this because i wanted to try a revlon foundation - i have a huge collection but had never tried any revlon ones. i purchased this in the shade 002 shell and it was a good match (i'm mac nw15). texture is lovely, except for the GLITTER! i have never in my life seen a glittery foundation. it's not subtle glitter either, it literally looks like i smeared glitter on parts of my face because it's not evenly distributed. it collected all around my nose, really unpleasant. i covered it with loose powder as best as i could but the glitter was still there. i wore it to work and no one mentioned the glitter so i hope it's mostly just me seeing it. aside from the glitter i quite liked this foundation - the coverage is quite sheer, it allows your skin to breathe and the colour match was perfect. i will use up what i bought because it's pretty expensive for a chemist foundation but definitely not repurchase.

Really love this foundation and tried it after looking at it for a year. It's very pretty and looks very radiant on the skin. I love how it makes my skin glow. I am always the 3rd lightest color in foundations and this was no different. I matched to 003. I am Nw20 in MAC and am cool toned and light.

This foundation can be a bit much if you use more than you need.
