tl;dr wonderful when applied with a beauty blender, horrible to apply with a brush. It cakes with a brush, but not with a BB sponge. (For reference, I use the orange BB dupe by Real Techniques.) Lasts all day for me when powdered (12+ hours). The packaging on my bottle does not include a pump which is a nuisance.My skin type has changed and become less oily over the years. (In fact my skin wasn't oily at all, it was just dehydrated.) I decided to try the normal/dry version instead to reflect this.At first, I applied it with the RT expert face brush. I was unimpressed with the finish at the time. It caked a bit and it was hard to blend. On a whim, I bought the RT sponge and decided to try the two together. It was the beginning of something beautiful. If you apply this foundation with a brush and hate the finish, please try a beauty blender sponge.As for the shade, ivory, it was a hint too dark for me. I now mix it with two small drops of a white foundation, and the shade is perfect now.I don't know if I can comment on the coverage, so let me explain. For the redness on my cheeks and chin, I apply a fine layer of a creamy green concealer underneath, and then dab my foundation on top. Both of these products combined basically cancel out the redness on my cheeks. I rarely wear this foundation by itself i.e. without the green concealer underneath. When I do, the coverage is pretty damned solid for a drugstore/high street brand. It does not adequately cover my redness by itself, though.My bottle doesn't have a pump, sadly, and I am too stingy to shell out for a pump by itself so I make do with pouring out a little bit onto the base of my mirror.I find that this foundation is one of the rare ones that looks good as the day goes on. I feel like it somehow works in tandem with my skin to stay looking lovely all day, and I regularly wear my foundation all day. (I work two jobs.)

I would say this is my favorite drugstore foundation ever. It's pretty much medium to full coverage with is great.

I just purchased this today because I read that their colors were very generous to us gals with yellow undertones. And that is definitely a difficult thing to find with drugstore makeup, especially when you're fair skinned with yellow undertones. I got this in the shade Buff and I was so nervous that this wouldn't match me, because so many times I go and buy a foundation and it looks great the area I do my makeup but when I get in my car the sunlight shows me something else. At first, I couldn't seem to work with it well, that's my fault for expecting full coverage on the first try. It's buildable, so I can just let each layer dry and then add a little more. It has a natural finish, and most importantly IT'S THE PERFECT COLOR. AND I don't need to set it with powder. When you have dry skin, powder isn't always the best idea. I'm so excited. The only reasons I took a lippie off is because I hate foundations you have to dump on your hand (I'll invest in a pump) and I wish it had more coverage right away. But beggars can't be choosers. I love this so far.

This is really over hyped , I tried it out a few months ago and was disappointed the foundation had sparkly particles in it and it did not cover my redness well at all as so many claimed it would cover up marks I returned it

I feel that too many people review this foundation with dry skin. I have normal skin, dry sometimes, oily another, and i love it. It is no where near as cakey as Elizabeth Arden foundations, Liz Earl (Signiture), MAc (which break me out to no end), and Dior. I would call it a less oily version of Chanel Vitalumiere. So easy to apply and blend out, i just use my fingers, but if i want more coverage i use a brush. I am NC15-20 at the moment and the colour Buff is such a good match, making my neck and face look in harmony. It is pretty hot right now and it has lasted throughout the day as how i applied it with only a little of by Terry Hydrating Powder over the top. The colour has stayed true to form and i look bright and fresh faced even though i am definitely tired and haggard. I also have incredibly sensitive skin and usually hate hate hate wearing foundation, but this feels so light while i feel secure in the fact my ex-acne scars are concealed, I just used my never ending pot of Kevyn Aucoins Sensual Skin Enhancer (best concealer in the entire world) on some darker scars and a premenstrual monster on my chin, i look flawless. It is also cheap for a good foundation without skin-ruiners like silicones and gross preservatives which always end up blocking my pores. BUY IT. Even if you have oily/combi skin, buy this version and some setting powder.

This is not good for dry skin even though it is advertised as that... I tried to apply it with different moisturizers and primers but I always got the same results. It accentuated my dry patches and clung onto them. The color selection is great but the packaging is annoying. There is no pump so I always end up getting way too much and wasting product. I would not recommend it if you have very dry skin.

I really like this foundation, I use it every day. Having dry skin, it's really hard to find a foundation that doesn't accentuate this, and I think I've found the one that doesn't.I use E45 cream and either Benefit's Porefessional or Maybelline's Baby Skin under this foundation and a little pressed powder over the top because the foundation is very wet and I need quite a lot to get good coverage. I generally apply extra to my nose and cheeks where redness reigns and it can leave my face feeling a little saturated and a little soggy.I'm a student and being in school, a hot, close environment all day, I was impressed how this foundation stayed. My foundation never faded and my blusher, bronzer and highlighter stayed put too and I looked as good catching the bus for the second time and I did the first!The packaging, for me, isn't too bad, because I do use a lot of product and I never feel like too much comes out of the bottle, but I would prefer to have a pump, but the size of the product is ok, and after about three months of use, I still haven't had to re-purchase, which is usually an issue I have with foundation. It is also a little pricey, but I do think it's totally worth it. This is my all-day, every day foundation and I don't think that will be changing any time soon!

I found this foundation whilst searching online for the best foundations for dry skin. This was in a top 10 list so I thought I'd give it a go. I bought this in boots on 3 for 2 with an extra 10% off and would not buy this at regular full price. After 3 layers of thick day cream moisturiser, as soon as I put this on to my worst patches of dry skin, they immediately went from slightly greasy to cracked and peeling. This may be to do with my current harsh skin care routine but from the reviews I read on this and the amount of aftercare I take with my skin it shouldn't have been a problem. The bottle itself is also a huge negative, I have to shake it upside down so the foundation goes to the top of the bottle, then dip my brush in, which always results in me using too much. The only plus points I can give this is the range of colours and coverage. I have very pale skin so always choose the lightest shade, and this turned out to be surprisingly a little tiny bit too light. I only have to use 1 layer and this covers my skin very well, if you can look past the emphasised dry patches. All in all, I wouldn't buy this again or recommend to anyone that actually has dry skin.

I have this in Ivory, which is a pretty good match for me. It's a tiny bit darker than my natural skin colour, but it's not too bad. I just have to make sure that I do my neck and ears.It gives me medium-full coverage, which is too heavy for daytime wear, but perfect for a night out. It is very good at covering redness. It can cake around acne, which is a downside. It clings to super-dry patches on my face, but generally it isn't too bad. I hate the bottle. I have the old bottle, which doesn't have a pump. I've seen it in stores and it has a pump now, which is much better!Overall, it's a decent foundation, but there are better ones out there.

I have combination skin, acne scars, oily on my nose area and dry patches on my cheeks and forehead
I use this in the shade Buff which looks great on my pale skin, not orangey at all, just right. I got this on sale for 13 euro, down from 18 and after seeing so many good reviews I decided to buy it while it was cheaper
The formula is a little watery, but not too watery, it blends onto my skin really well with a beauty blender, it doesn't look too good whenever I apply with a brush.
The coverage is really good, I only need to use concealer on my really dark acne scars, I find that it slides off quite fast around my oily areas and kinda clings to my really dry patches, it's not too noticeable though, and it gives a nice dewy finish and feels so light on the skin. It says it's meant to last 24 hours but I find after 5-6 hours I need to reapply it.
It is a nice foundation, coverage wise and colour wise, it applies great with a beauty blender and gives a nice finish
I would buy it again, and I'd be eager to try the combination/oily formula
