This was my go to foundation until I noticed it turns orange. My skin is norm - dry. This gives my skin just the right amount of moisture and is not matte which dries my skin out and makes fine lines more obvious. Wish they had better non oxidizing shades.

WORST FOUNDATION. It has sucky lasting powder. I hate this so much. It looks so cakey even if you just use a little and if you have acne marks or acne this will be your worst nightmare. It doesnt cover ANYTHING. It looks like im wearing a transparent flour mask all over my face. Im gonna throw this away. Its horrible. I hate this.

I have recently realised that my skin tone has changed and fair shades that used to look good on me do not offer me the same amount of coverage anymore.

When I purchased a bottle of this foundation I very daringly went for Creamy Natural 200, pretty scary for me as I usually don't go much past a 100 or 120.

I was very pleasantly surprised when I applied this foundation just how good it looked and how much it complimented my skin.

The coverage is great, all my redness disappeared, my skin looks dewy and youthful and it lasts all day.

I also liked the fact that this foundation offered me enough coverage that I didn't feel the need to apply concealer.

I think it may be a little darker than what I would like but it is winter here in Australia so I am hoping it is a better match in summer. I can still get away with it though and I certainly do think I have a healthy summer glow about me.

I don't know about the firming bit, nothing looks firmer. I do think I look more youthful and there has been no settling in my creases.

I wish it came with a pump applicator.

My husband told me that I looked beautiful and that is all that matters to me.

I bought this foundation in the shade Buff Beige #130. Right off the bat I have to confess that I bought the wrong shade. This is too light for me so I can't count that against it. As for the formula, it goes on very nicely and it blends well. This foundation makes my skin oily as the day goes on but I have not had any issues with breakouts. I would like to try this foundation in another shade so I will buy it again and give it another shot.

NC25 here.....I have Sandy Beige which is just ever so slightly darker than I am but it actually works perfectly just for my forehead area that catches a little more of a tan. (which i am not really tan but its a shade darker than the rest of my face so this works) the coverage is medium to full and is buildable. the price is right. the formula is perfect for my dry skin. i prefer this and their 24 hour over my lancome teint miracle and chanel perfection lumiere! no scent which is great. this is an all around great foundation!

I have never done a review before and I made this account just to review this HORRIBLE product!!! if you have acne, STAY AWAY! this product does absolutely nothing. it covers up nothing! even little red marks. and it made me look cakey! my face actually looked better without this stuff on. it is useless and a complete waste of money. if you have flawless skin, this may be a good product for you. it's not drying like other foundations i've tried. but this stuff is garbage and i threw it out immediately. so dissapointed. again, definitely not for acne prone skin or for people with blemishes. oh and it smells like coffee.

I had heard so many raves about this product I decided to pick it up since i do not have a set foundation I use . At first I thought i was not using it right because the applicator does not make it very easy to apply evenly. So i looked up and found a couple video's on You Tube. Someone suggested to take a sponge to pat your face after you applied it . Well ok that's great and it worked, however if i am going to have to roll it on then use another applicator why not just use a liquid foundation . The coverage is nice the color is nice but I think the applicator and packaging is wasteful . I have had the product for less than a month and its nearly gone ! I wont be buying this again .

I was trying to find a decent drugstore foundation. I wanted something that'd match my pale olive skin and usually Maybelline doesn't match (ends up very pink on me). I was pleasantly surprised by this when it did. But that was the best for this. My skin is finicky with what goes on it and most foundations will cake (I have no idea why it does this; I have tried different time combinations- applying moisturizer & waiting 5 minutes, applying no moisturizer, applying moisturizer & waiting 10, 15,20minutes...etc). Anyways so this did cake and I gave up on it. Then there's the fact that I wear white at work and this came off onto it. I was disappointed by that. I was hoping that this foundation could last a work day for me (I apply it an hour before work so it hast to last 10hrs). It didn't. It also transferred. So those who don't mind that I'm sure it could work for you. I left this a 3 'cause I could see others loving this.

I love this foundation!!! It gives a lovely, even, natural looking coverage. Never have I tried ANYTHING that gives you such a natural, radiant glow and high coverage. If your skin is well behaved, you might find it a bit excessive for everyday wear, but even then it is perfect for special occasions. I love how it photographs.

Its staying power isn't phenomenal though. You will definitely need a good setting powder with this one.This may be because this is a very non- drying sort of formula.

I do warn you: be careful putting this over certain blemishes and rough or dry skin. It will amplify those problem spots when used without primer or a thorough moisturizer.

I decided to purchase this foundation after reading all the great reviews. I ended up buying shade 300 for my NC 37-40 skin (for reference to those who want to know) and wore it to work for 9 hrs. It looked really good on me and the match was perfect. However, when i got home and took off the makeup, I noticed that my face had a bunch of tiny red dots all over. Even on my nose and my upper lip. The main cause of this... the foundation :( It was probably too rich for my skin and i tend to be very acne prone. I put a layer of sulfur overnight and this morning they were gone. I probably got some kind of allergic reaction and my skin did not take this very well. This foundation is going back.
