Great color, lousey foundation. I have combo skin and this stuff "melted" off after a few hours. I do not like this at all!!!

This is my first stab at a foundation. I have to say that I enjoy that you can get a concealer and a powder to match. I have only used it a few times and I quite like it. It seems to blend well and I had luck matching my skin tone. The little bottle is so cute and allows for easy, organized storage. It's not too expensive so I think it is defintley worth a try.

I tried this after learning that L'oreal color match thousands of women before creating these shades. I purchased C8. It was not a good match for me. The shade was good, but the undertone was too yellow. I think there are better choices available by Maybelline, Milani, Black Opal, Iman,....

I have a fair skintone & I've been using this foundation ever since it first came out as a new product and it is my HG inexpensive brand. Im surprised this product didn't get a higher review on here. The oil-free formula is great, very blendable, texture is very nice, and it covers imperfections very well. The color matches my skintone perfectly and goes on smooth. It doesn't last as long as I would like, but it is still great! I wish the container had a pump so it was more sanitary.

So far, I have no complaints about this product, but I'm not raving, either.

Usually, I use minerals, but I wanted a liquid foundation to wear for friend's wedding, that would stand up to dancing and would photograph well.

I'm very pale and find it difficult to find a foundation that blends well with my skin.

The palest cool shade (Alabaster, 1-C) matched decently enough. It also photogaphed well, and when set with the matching powder, held up. So I'm happy.

Is this something I'd wear daily? No. This foundation can be difficult to use, you have to blend it pretty quickly or else your skin looks chalky. Also, unless you use a good moisturizer underneath, it'll look too powdery.

The price was good, $8, and while I'd have preferred a pump top, I can live with the current packaging. I typically use cosemtic sponges once or twice and then wash them in something antibacterial, so I'm not too concerned about hygeine.

I actually like this product. I've been using Cover Girl TruBlend for the LONGEST time, and then I decided to try this. It's very liquidy. I have it in Natural Buff (N3) and now that it's summer it's a little too light, but still works. It really is very blendable and definitely worth a try!

Foundation is very good overall, and I really like the idea of having N, W and C to choose from. I have no idea what I am so I opted for the lightest N, which happened to suit me perfectly.
It is a bit dry around my nose and accentuates patches of dry skin somewhat. I find that in other areas it does not tend to shine/get oily by the end of the day like other foundations I have used in the past.
It is a very good price, the only gripe I have is the packaging, which is glass. I am always dropping things so maybe this isn't the best option for me

Ok, so I read a lot of reviews before I buy makeup, and I guess some people thought this was good and others bad so I decided to try it. I've been using Revlon Colorstay for the past 3 years, but just recently noticed that it made my skin really fake looking, so I wanted one that suited my skin more. First I tried N6 but that was a little darker than my skin so I exchanged it for N5. I have to say that this stuff is horrible. I tried putting it on with fingers and then another day with a zfoundation brush, then I set it with loose powder, but after two hours my skin is very oily and I don't even have oily skin! The sad part is that it looked perfect when I put it on. It also rubbed off on the sides of my face. I guess since Im used to Colorstay I touch my face a lot without thinking about my makeup but if this was really good it wouldn't come off that easily. I've also started to break out and since I don't normally, I'm guessing its because of this.

I love this, it covers well and blends in so perfectly, its smooth. Since I just started to wear fondation last year, I think this was a good product to start with.

I bought this after much consideration. I have oily skin, and I feel that liquid foundations are to heavy on me. But then I heard all the good things about this one, how it left a smooth matte finish and stayed on all day.
Not on me. It takes forever to sink in, feels so heavy and actually looks very unnatural. My face is very oily after a few hours. I've applyed with fingertips, dry sponge and wet sponge, nothing helps.
I still try it every now and then. because I hate having products lying aroung unused, but everytime I find myself rubbing it off after a while because it feels so uncomfortable. Will not buy again.
