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.

The packaging is fine but i honestly wish it came with a pump overall the product is great(: , probably the best drug store foundation out their. Not as pricey as others i say pricing is in between. The thing with this foundation is that you must act quickly and blend well or else it will leave you with a cakey finish.

Okay, despite giving this product 4 lippies and not 5, the only reason is the packaging. I use this product on clients, it mixes well, and lasts long throughout photoshoots and wedding photos. However, that being said, the coverage is nice and the finish is good as well. I like it, not for me personally, but for clients. Plus I got them on sale for $7 a piece, score!

One gripe... is the packaging. I hate, hate, hate, HATE bottles of foundation that are just... open. It gets germs in the product and can just be... blah. Everytime I buy a new one, I just replace the packaging by letting it sit downturned, then depositing it into a pump top disposable product holder. It's more sanitary and much easier to use on the go or when I'm pressed for time.

I bought this liquid foundation the other day, because I read good reviews on it.. but I feel it's best for dry or normal skin. I have oily skin and even though I used the oily skin version, my face looked wet! I liked the coverage and the foundation itself, but it just didn't work for me personally.

I just purchased this foundation and i love it! i needed a darker foundation for when I am more tan and all of my favorite youtube gurus use this a lot so i thought id try it! I found it at walmart for 14 dollars but in drugstores its like 20, which is quite expensive for drugstore products! the smell is a bit overwhelming tho, it wears off a but after like 10 mintunes though.

I used this foundation as my everyday foundation i also have mac studio fix and nars sheer glow foundation that i use on special ocassions or days that i dont work. I love the way it wear it really does last all day long i was so excited when i purchased this and started using it. I really dont like using my expensive foundations if im going to sweat or be running around. The only thing is i bought mine for about $13 to me thats a little but expensive for a drug store brand. Another thing that bothers me is that i usually put foundation on the back of my hand and apply and well this foundation dries quick so i usually blot on my face and hurry up and apply either than that i love it!
