I absolutely love this foundation. I have dry patches on my cheeks but this just glides on, not clinging onto them at all. It leaves a nice dewy finish on the skin. If you have slightly oilier skin, it would be best to powder, that's what I do for my slightly oilier T-zone. Coverage is light but I suppose you can build it up a little bit.

I love this for the winter and when I want a my skin but better look. Definitely recommend :)

I had been using the Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation for a couple of months when I decided to give this a try. I have the foundation in the shade 'Light Vanilla' but could only find the serum in the shade 'Vanilla' - but luckily it doesn't make me look too orange!

It is definitely thinner and more 'gel-like' in consistency but with a similar fruity smell and dewy look which I love. Having combination skin, I do find that it doesn't last past 2/3 hours without me needing to powder so I find it better to mix the serum and foundation to get a more long lasting and higher coverage look on a daily basis. However, on days when I just need minimal makeup for a few hours the serum gives a lovely natural look.

I absolutely love this foundation. I don't know why I bother buying other foundations when I'll just end up coming back to this one in the end - I'm already on my fourth bottle! The finish is natural, the product doesn't feel heavy on the skin, and it blends in really well. The best thing about it is how smooth it is without being too heavy or cakey. On a normal day I'll rub the product between my fingers and spread it on my face from my nose outwards. It smooths over my pores, dry skin, and acne scars like acrylic paint. I have the product in 53 Light Beige. The undertones of this shade are more yellow than pink which works perfectly for my pale Asian skin. It does a good job of covering my uneven skin tone but it doesn't have enough pigmentation to be full coverage; you'll need to touch up problem areas with a concealer.

I have already finished and repurchased this foundation twice! My main reason for loving it is the colour match - I'm in the shade 52 vanille and it is the perfect amount of yellow to match my natural skin colour. It gives a luminous finish with a light to medium-light coverage and it lasts a normal day for me with a primer underneath. It is definitely not a long lasting foundation though! I really recommend this foundation for anyone who has a yellow or olive skin tone and wants a perfect colour match :)

About my skin: Nc25-30, combo skin (oily T zone, dry patches on the sides of my chin, fairly normal cheeks), I have very rare breakouts but dark under eye circles and some discolouration around my mouth.

I loved the Nars Sheer Glow foundation and when I ran out, had planned on trying this as many have suggested it is a dupe. There was a limited range of shades (they all seemed very pink) and I ended up grabbing the shade 32 - beige clair. It is a tad dark and again on the pink side but i assumed i would be able to blend it in. This foundation is a very light coverage which I didn't mind, however you could still see the product and it definitely looked cake and patchy in areas. Moisturizing beforehand somewhat helped the initial appearance however this foundation did not last more than 4 hours before breaking down, and adding a moisturizer underneath only shortened that time. Layering this foundation is a recipe for cake face and I wouldn't suggest it. This product doesn't break me out at al so that's a plus for sensitive skin

The only purpose I currently have for this product is to mix it with my lighter foundations. Considering how pricey this is in Canada for a drugstore product, I am severely underwhelmed.

I had recently run out of my Bourjois Healthy Mix foundation so I thought I would give this one a try. First thing I noticed was how light the coverage was. I had some red spots on my cheek, and it didn't cover it at all. When I tried to apply a second layer, it looked really cakey. It also didn't last more then a few hours and faded very unevenly. I think this would be most suited to teens or anyone with perfect skin. The normal healthy mix is much better.

Absolutely adore this foundation.

I'm a NARS Sheer Glow Gobi shade (not sure what that is in Mac!) and I'm really quite yellow. I quite liked Sheer Glow but I didn't always feel that it sat that well on my skin.

Anyway, over £30 a bottle was getting too much so I thought I'd look into a drugstore foundation. I hadn't bought drugstore for years but I will definitely repurchase the Healthy Mix Serum. I purchased shade 51 and it's very similar to Gobi - slightly pinker but still blends seamlessly. I apply with a beauty blender and my very, very dry skin looks dewy and glowing. I don't get horrible dry patches (unless I apply lots of powder). The coverage is light-medium, but I have red pigmentation and thread veins and it covers them completely.

Since my skin is so dry, I really struggle to find foundations that don't make me look like a flakey crispy mess. So pleased with this foundation and have already recommended it!

I love this foundation! Estée was absolutely my reason for this purchase since her skin is so similar to mine. I like that this foundation doesn't cake up and actually lasts a very long time on the skin. Will repurchase for sure.
