I'm an NC30-37 and I picked up the shade N6 Honey Beige. Weirdly enough not many stores stock up on this shade. I got mine like 6-8 months ago and I JUST ran out of it. Love how it glides effortlessly on the skin, covers pretty much my redness and minor pigmentation on my cheeks and forehead. I won't say it's 100% forgiving on dry patches, but it is more dewy than most foundations. I think the finish is satiny. Very comfortable to wear, but also easy to over apply this product because of its blendibility. You WILL look cakey if you apply more than 1 layer. This is my go-to product for a quick outing where I want to look just decent and not made up.

As much as I wanted to absolutely love this product. I just couldn't get it to look right on my skin personally. It's a real shame because the color range is spectacular, especially it being drugstore!

I really wanted to love this product. This has one of the more comprehensive shade ranges in the drugstore, and it's easy to match yourself. I match W1/W2 well, which is hard, because most shades are either too pink for me or not light enough. The packaging is easy to use, it's not too expensive, and it has SPF, if you like that in a foundation.

However...whenever I apply it, no matter how little I apply (including a mere smudge on my cheek) it immediately cakes up into a grotesque, textured film on my skin. I've tried it with my fingers, with the real technique's sponge and one of the brushes, and the effect is still the same - instant cake face. It clings to the baby fine hairs on my cheeks like nothing else, and it doesn't cover a stitch of my hyper pigmentation along my cheeks. The only place it sits right is my forehead, which doesn't really require much coverage to begin with. I don't know if the product is to blame, or if my skin's texture is partially responsible, as my skin is sometimes a bit rough nowadays. There is an ingredient in some sunblocks that causes a mild reaction, so it may be the SPF that upsets my skin so much.

I will say that it does hold moderately well on my combo skin, with relatively little fading or oiliness peaking through, and the shade is excellent. But with the instant cake face and possible SPF problems, I have to pass on it. Those that like the SPF, like the shade range, and like medium coverage foundations for combo to oily skin, you may want to try this though.

I tried this foundation in the summer. I consider myself an "NC40" in MAC. I bought this in W6. the shade match was good. When wearing in the summer I did get a little oily which is weird bc my skin is dry. blended really easily could use this with any tool. however it broke me out pretty bad, I think it was bc of the spf. bottle has no pump either.

I tried this a while ago and it was very VERY oily on me! I have pretty normal skin, and it made my face feel like an oil spill and would just wipe off on anything! This may be a good foundation for dry skin, but I wouldn't recommend for any other skin type.

I picked this up after some friends recommended it. It gives me flawless coverage, blends very easily, and it's a great match for my skin. It's not mattifying, so if you're naturally oily, I would use a setting powder and primer. Fortunately, I'm not oily, and this lasts all day on me. I wear an N3, and I have had several customers at my job ask what I wear, as they compliment that my face looks flawless and poreless. I will repurchase! A little goes a long way with this.

This foundation is pretty watery and does not really settle on your face so you have to actually blend blend blend. I like L'Oreal products but this one was not one of my favs. Purchased this a while ago and just use it when I'm out of my good foundation and true match is my only last resort lol. Overall I wouldn't recommend if you have oily/combo skin.

So far for my skin tone this is the only brand that matches me exactly. I buy this foundation in N7 and it give my skin a warmth and glow that most other brands take away. (looking at you Covergirl and Maybelline...) Unfortunately, I have oily skin and the foundation leans toward being more watery than dewy so it gets a tad cakey and without a holding spray it gets on everything. My boyfriend has had to throw away a ton of white t-shirts... lol I bought Covergirl foundation and then layer it with a L'oreal powder to give me the glow and warmth I want. Covergirl just holds better for people with oily skin. But I love the color, definitely blends well.

Pros.: full coverage; spf
Cons.: not for oily skin; visible on face; cackey; feels heavy on skin; messy packaging.

I really wanted to like this foundation, because I use other L'oreal products, and it says for all skin types, but no. It is not for a person with oily skin. After 3 hours my face is shiny and itchy. Even after application it doesn't look matte. I will stick to products specifically for oily skin. and this products causes break outs.

I wish this wouldve worked for me but after wearing it one day i broke out in tiny red bumps which is my skins way of saying it clogged the crap out of my pores. It seemed like a good foundation otherwise but i was pretty oily too at the end of the day and i did set it. The shade range is pretty amazing. If you dont have sensitive acne prone oily skin this would be a good foundation for you probably.
