This was not right for me. I have quite an oily t zone and this did not help unfortunately. Nice variety of shades. Quite thick consistency with good coverage.

I gave this foundation a try and loved it. I almost bought the full size, but did a comparison between this and NARS Sheer Glow - I actually liked the NARS a bit more. Also, since NARS is less expensive, I went with that. However, I still loved the way this makes my skin look! Also, it has SPF 15 and is paraben free.

My skin is in good condition. I occasionally have a blemish to cover or redness, but overall I want a foundation that evens my skin tone and looks natural. This did a great job at each of those tasks and also gave my skin a pretty, silk finish. I wouldn't necessarily call this "dewy," but it isn't matte either. It lasted on my skin for about five hours with no setting powder. However, I also did virtually nothing that day except relax. I would definitely opt to set this with a powder. The NARS sheer glow lasted longer (also with no powder).

Overall, this is a very nice foundation. I love the packaging, coverage, and finish. However, I do wish it lasted a bit longer. Also, considering there are foundations that work equally well (if no a bitt better) and are less expensive, I will have to pass on this.

I love this foundation! It's perfect on my normal to dry skin. Doesn't cover everything (I have quite a few acne scars), but covers most discolourations. For the rest I use a concealer if needed. I don't normally like to wear a foundation everyday, I've only used them for special occasions and bad skin-days in the past, but this foundation makes my skin look so pretty I'm tempted to put it on every day! It makes my skin look luminous, and what I love is that it's not too obvious that I'm wearing make up when I have this on. I find it's better to apply it with a brush than with my fingers, but I see some prefer the opposite. I use a Sigma F80 brush, and the foundation blends right in to my skin. I'm Indian and I have this in BD50 which is a perfect colour-match for my winter skin.

I have extremely dry skin and have tried every mac, bobbi brown and benefit foundation. This is literally amazing. The texture is quite light and can be built from light to medium to full. It's high percentage of water means it really hydrates the skin. I'm cabin crew and after 2 hours in the sky my foundation is usually a mess, with this however I can do a 16 hour day and it still look stunning. The colours match perfectly and it blends effortlessly. A must buy for people with dry skin.

My skin type is extremely oily and prone to breakouts. I have tried EVERY foundation out there and I mean every foundation for my skin. I know everyone talks about this foundation not being great for oily skin, but I completely disagree. If you apply Benefit pore proffesional primer followed by Skindinavia no more shine spray and THEN apply this foundation the finish is beautiful. You can also spray Skindinavia after you apply your foundation as well. If you do suffer with acne, or acne scars then apply double wear concealor underneath and i promise you, you will get the most amazing finish. It is honestly the best foundation I have come across but obviously for those with more oily skins, you will have to go to a bit more effort for it to last but if you do the routine i do and apply powder with a puff you will be pleasantly surprised!

Very expensive, beuatiful packaging, the smell is divine, perfect color, blends like a dream...after that its ALL downhill....it looks gorgeous when first applied, but within a very short time it made my face look like a greaseball...and the kicker was even though my face was glowing like I was in the middle of a hot flash, there was no foundation to be seen!!! I honestly don't know how that happened??? I am now powdering over it with a huge amt of powder, just so I can look like I'm not a fry cook on a smoke break. Its going back to Sephora on Monday.

MY SKIN: Normal-Dry, minor hyper pigmentation, NC30ish, Olive Undertones. No significant pore issues. Not terribly sensitive. Matched to BD60.

PROS: beautiful dewy, glowy finish. I love dewy skin and this is the first foundation that truly gives me a natural glow. Lasts all day with UD All Nighter Spray and HG Dim powder. It looks like I'm not wearing foundation at all. Amazing product.

CONS: Do NOT use silicone based cheek products over this. My Armani Cheek Fabric ate the foundation right up. I also tried with Guerlain; same result. Stila Convertible Cheek works fine.

PRICE: Ouch. So expensive it hurts. But worth it.

Other Foundations I've Tried:

Chanel V, A and Lift L.
UD Naked
Lancome Teint Idol
DIOR Air Flash
Dior Nude
MAC - all, including FB
The list goes on, but you get the idea. I'm a foundation junkie. :/

I recently purchased this foundation as I wanted a foundation that wouldn't oxidise on my very fair skin (as previous attempts with varying different brands in their lightest shade always ended up with me looking like an orange). I had to guess my own colour match as the advisor was away and eventually plumped for shade BR 10. Whilst the shade does seems to blend in seamlessly; the actual application is not easy and the product feels like it is being dragged across the skin. This foundation offers only light to sheer coverage; and by mid afternoon at work I found it started to take on an unflattering powdery texture in patches on my face. It also highlights any dry patches you have and the coverage means you would still have to use a concealer when required. It cost 29 UK pounds; and whilst I will certainly persevere with it to recoup the cost I don't feel I would purchase this product again.

This is a unique type of foundation out there. It give the luminosity without a single hint of greasy shine. It glides on like a dream and leaves natural looking 'your skin but way better' face. This foundation stays in place for long hours at least in cooler weather.
B10 is a perfect color match for me which is a rare thing. I match my foundation at the side of cheek where it is close to neck so that the skin color should be same ideally. I find it is 100%. So fair skinned ladies will like it. The downside seems to be that B10 is not available in every store (what a trick from marketing team). I happened to find it only in big department store in Stuttgart.
Overall, I would recommend it to fair skinned girls with dry to normal skin in search of some luminosity in their complexion.

This foundation has quite a light coverage - so it gives a lovely natural finish. If you have oily skin however, this product isn't for you (I learned the hard way). It is designed to give a radiant, semi dewy finish, but if you have oily as I do, it will look (surprise, surprise) OILY within a few hours. I can't comment for people with drier skin. It is very easy to blend, and easy to work with. It is nice and creamy, and easy to spread. If you are prone to blemishes, you might want to consider applying concealer, the coverage is certainly not enough to cover red spots throughout the day.

For $78 AUD, I don't think I'd buy this product again. It wasn't the foundation for me. Saying that, it wasn't a bad product at all.
