So I obviously heard about this foundation all over YouTube and beauty communities/reviews just like everyone else. I was very surprised at how bad it ended up being on my skin. I chalk it up to people having a variety of skin types that react differently with different products, because there is no way somebody would recommend this foundation if it reacted on their skin like it did mine. The color selection is nice but the coverage was just weird. I have combination/oily skin. Not very acne prone. I wore Maybelline baby skin primer under the true match for my large pores. The coverage was sheer and never fully dried. It made me look super greasy just 30 minutes after setting it with powder (it was already shiny upon application, I just thought maybe it would settle). I had to powder my face every hour to try and dispel the oiliness and the foundation stayed sticky all day (I wore it about 8 hours). It lasted about 6 hours but I don't consider it to have lasted much of anything because it looked like crap and was wet. So what lasted, butter face? If it works for you, thats great because they have a wonderful color selection. I returned it.

So generally I stick to maybelline or covergirl for foundations but a good friend of mine really recommended this product so I decided to try it. like everyone on here I will agree they shade selection is fantastic and I love the warm neutral cool options. however the product and wear itself was very average. It gathered in every fine line on my face which most liquid foundations don't do.. and i found the coverage to be very light.. I always use powder anyways so this wasn't a big deal. In the end for the expensive price I was expecting more. This just seems like the overpriced L'oreal version of Clean by covergirl. Nothing special here.

Can't beat the shade selection! N3 is perfect on me--I wear MAC NC 25-30, for reference. When applied with a damp beauty blender, coverage is medium to full depending on how much you layer, and looks quite natural. The packaging could be better, it would be nice to have a pump instead of having to pour this out, but not a big deal.

Only negative is this is NOT a long-lasting foundation at all. And the L'Oreal Magic Lumi primer seemed to make it even worse. Setting with a powder definitely helps, though.

This is pricey for a drugstore foundation but the quality is that of a higher-end product, so $10 isn't bad for this at all. I would definitely repurchase, especially if they add a pump dispenser.

I like the variety of shades . I have pores and even with primer this foundation doesn't suit me becuz it sits in the pores in disgusting way :( wish that worked for me becuz I bough 5 shades from this foundation.

LOVE LOVE LOVE this foundation! The shade variety is great so you are sure to find a match. I have fairly dry/eczema prone skin and this foundation doesnt seem to enhance my dry spots. It has a semi matte finish i usually set it with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and it lasts all during school. The only 2 complaints i would probably have on this is the packaging and the price. *sighs* l'oreal, you have a great product and i probably can't live without it but honestly, no pump? The packaging really is a nightmare! You have to unscrew the lid and pour it out on your hand and mind you its a very runny liquidy foundation so it makes a mess and you are prone to get more than you need. I could go on about the packaging forever. Also, the spillage makes you lose more product causing you to go buy more and more. For 11.99 a bottle? no gracias!

1. It's off when it comes to packaging, glass bottle with no pump.

2. This foundation is a good catch considering its price.

3. Easy to blend and you can build layers of it for the coverage that you want

4. It didn't cause any breakouts. I guess it is hypo-allergenic.

5. Lasting power is a bit off for oily skin, needed to apply primer and a good setting powder to make it last long .

as this is the number one foundation in a bunch of places i was very eager to purchase. its such a talked about product on the internet and youtube. unfortunately it made my face look very cakey. and i am positive the fault is not with my application as i am used to liquid foundations and apply with beauty blenders. i also have ZERO hair on my face, and use a very natural powder, so it was not me. I guess it just didnt work for my skin. it looked awful. so disapointed!!

ok, so I have to admit I hated this at first!!! but after leaving it alone for quite some time, I gave it another try! and I am glad I did! I wear it as my daily foundation now! flawless coverage, doesn't crease, stays put, and doesn't enhance any fine lines or wrinkles. just a great product. the only thing is I HATE THE PACKAGING. it just pours out and you get wayyyyy too much if you aren't careful. but I'll deal with it cuz it makes my skin gorgeous 😉

I'm going to sum up this foundation in everyone's perspective. The coverage is medium to full. Very buildable. BUT it lasts no more than 5 hours even with the best primer or setting sprays. This applies to dry and oily skin types. As I'd been using this all year round. The color selection I must say is fanfuckingtabulous yes that's the only word to describe it. I'd say this foundation ranks a 5 in a scale of 1-10 of best foundations. Will repurchase.
