I had a very important event coming up and since I have been breaking out more than I usually do I decided to wear foundation for the very first time. I heard so many good reviews on this so I decided to try this out for a first foundation. After using it, I don't think it's a very good first foundation for all the girls that have never tried foundation before. It dries to quickly and it is a bit difficult to blend. Although, this product does have very good coverage and it has a matte finish which is always a plus for me! This also broke me out even more. My skin is currently still healing from all the small bumps it has given me. Overall, I would not buy this foundation ever again.

This foundaton is a good drugstore brand, and does stay on for the enitre day. For the price, I'd recommend it. I have very oiky skin and this is the ONLY drugstore brand that wouldn't melt off my face by the end of the day. I like full coverage, and this doesn't really cover as much as I'd like, but you can build it. This can cause tiny little breakouts if you don't wash it off at the end of the day, and it can feel a little tight on the skin. I also wish there were more colors available, (I find myself having to mix two different colors to get the right shade), but overall, this is a good, inexpensive alternative to big name long wear foundations.

I have been buying revlon Colorstay concealer fort the past two years it works great! You do not need the foundation, Just buy the concealer stick, for blemishes, and black under the eyes! works great!

So I bought this Saturday. I was SOOO excited to buy it I literally stalked this foundation online, until I bought it. (NO JOKE) Anyway, I bought this foundation and so far so good. I am a little scared to see if I will break out. If possible please someone, let me know if I will break out because of this or get little pimples.
Packaging: We need a pump people!
The smell: It's an odd makeupy *is that a word?* paint smell
I think I got a couple tiny (barely there) pimples

Coverage:Amazing coverage
Strength: It's amazing how it stays on for like 12+ hours!
Price: It's not to cheap, but not to high
Cute bottle: lol the bottle is cute but it would be sexy if there was a pump!
Overall: I guess I will buy this again

LOVE this product! I went out and purchased this after reading all the great reviews. I would have never noticed this so thank you MUA!
The thing I love most is the fact that it stays on for hours. I have never found a product great lasting power. I think I touch my face a lot without realizing and other product would be worn off by late morning. I have redness around my nose and chin and this covers it so nicely! It is SO wonderful to have an even skin tone ALL day!!! Will re-purchase again and again

Great coverage, many shades, good price. I have oily skin and really wanted something I don't have pay a lot for (have you seen the prices for gas lately!) and great coverage. My understanding is this foundation is suppose to have a matte finish, but this isn't the case. After a few minutes it looks a bit shiny, okay, a lot of shiny! Yes, I set with powder but still. The foundation shouldn't be THAT shiny. Be to be fair, many other foundations I've tried have made my face shiny. All in all this is a great foundation for anyone who wants full coverage for a fraction of the cost of dept store brands.

This product is not bad but for someone with a hard to match skin tone it did not meet my needs. I tried golden warm, golden caramel and natural tan, all to no avale I usually wear NC40 or BB 4.5. None of the shades matched me, I think I could find my ideal color if I mixed two different shades but for that hassle and price I could buy a pre-made at a department store! It felt thick and did not blend so great.

They now make this with a PUMP here in Australia!
I use to hate this foundation for years but now I can't live without it. I use natural tan which suits me because I am always fake tanned. I love that they make it for oily/combo skin because no foundations do it. It lats all day and stays matte when no other foundations do. I love it :)

I preffer more natural look, and more natural coverage, so while this foundation does provide a most amazing full on coverage, i dont think it looks too natural on, hence you can't have both, it's one or the other. It's not a foundation that i would wear every day, as a matter of fact, i try not to wear a foundation every single day due to obvious skin aging (yes, no foundation regardless of how natural it feels or looks is therapeutic for your skin) but i do wear this foundation when going out, as it just gives a great coverage, stays on for a while, and it's a decent price. I have been using this for a while, and definatelly recommend it.

Man, YouTube users really hyped up this foundation to be something great. As I remember, it was a bit on the pricey side. All I liked about this was the color I selected. This really made my skin dry out more, even though I bought the one specific for dry skin. Maybe now that winter is over, I'll give this another shot. I really want to like it because the color was perfect.
