This is the perfect foundation for dry skin. It doesn't cling to dry patches and leaves skin feeling soft. My only complaint is that the shades are all yellow based.

This is my absolute favourite foundation (excluding bb/cc creams) so far, and am currently on my second bottle in #52 Vanilla. I purchased my first bottle back in 2013, and used it on and off while switching between other products. I always find myself coming back to this one because it's just so fun to wear, and its immediate effect is amazing. Despite my overall 5/5 rating though, the foundation isn't without its flaws. To make it easier, I'm just going to sort out my thoughts with a pros/cons list.

Pros:

- Super lightweight: This foundation allows your skin to breathe without making you feel like you have a layer of substance on your face. Your skin feels and looks like your own skin.

- Gorgeous finish: I actually feel excited waking up in the mornings just thinking about getting to put on this foundation. It blends like a dream, and will look great with a beauty blender, brush, or even just your fingers. The finish is semi-matte and a little dewy (but not oily!), and it makes you look like your face is giving off a natural healthy glow. It also never cakes up, which is why I also love using it as an under-eye concealer.

- Smells amazing: Whether or not something smells good is subjective, but another reason I love putting this on is because of its scent. It smells like yummy fruits (a mix of mangoes, peaches, apples, etc.)! It's honestly the best-smelling foundation I've ever come across so far. I do know some reviewers who aren't too fond of the scent, but good news is that it fades away rather quickly.

- Great packaging: Comes in a glass bottle with a pump! What more can I ask for?

- Price: I live in Canada, and this can be purchased from Shoppers Drug Mart for $29.00 before tax. I know it sounds like a hefty amount for a drugstore foundation, but the product is definitely of higher quality when compared with other drugstore foundations. One bottle also lasts forever (more than a year)!

Cons:

- Doesn't last too long: This foundation definitely doesn't last too long (3-4 hours max) if you're in a hot and humid climate. I used it during the summer in Hong Kong and I had to blot away the shine. Even in colder places like Canada, it lasts around 5 hours max. I mean, this is good enough for a daily foundation, but it's just not the best option if you're going to be out for a late-night party. (I have combination skin with an oily T-zone, so if you have dry skin, it might last longer for you.)

- Unavailable in some countries: Although it is easily found in Canada, Europe, and certain cities in Asia, I heard it's not sold in the US. So if you're from the US, you'll have to purchase this online, which may be inconvenient.

- Limited shades: #52 Vanilla matches me perfectly, and it's the second lightest shade in their range. However, the foundation only comes in five shades and they all lean towards a yellow undertone. While that's awesome for me, those of you who have pink undertones might find the shades a bit off.

I bought it several times. It is a 99% perfect foundation. Good staying power, hydrating for my dry skin, perfect match for my skintone (Vanilla), fruity smell! I can not find any highend or drugstore foundation better than this one!

One of the best foundations I have bought in a while! It gives a light coverage but it is hard to build, so don't use as a heavy duty foundation.

It gives a very natural finish whilst creating a lovely glow to the skin. I have fairly clear skin and it works perfectly but I would imagine it wouldn't be great for certain skin types. My skin can become quite oily through the day so it doesn't tend to last any longer than 6-8 hours.

It smells amazing and one bottle can last forever! The price is also a plus which means I would definitely buy again.

I love this stuff! For some reason I find myself wanting to wear this all the time. I have so many foundations and this is one I always feel like wearing! Just makes my skin look dewy and fresh and amazing. Smells good, looks good, AMAZING. If you have dry skin (I don't have oily skin so I can't speak on behalf of oily skinned people) but if you've been wanting to try it, I highly recommend it! I got mine on Amazon but I know you can get it on fluffystores.com.

I am a 15 year old that overall has fairly clear skin other than a couple of break outs now and that that can be fixed with a concealer. I use this foundation every day! It provides a natural health glow to the skin whilst giving a light coverage. It has a strong smell but I like it.

it is a light coverage foundation & is more for people with clear skin, which I didn't have a problem with. when you first apply it, it looks very nice and has a good finish but after around 3 hours it starts to go patchy which looked awful so i wont be wearing this again!

Provides light coverage with a dewy finish. My sensitive skin did not break out. Coverage lasts maybe four hours, tops. This is better for younger, clearer skin. I need more for my over 40, combo-dry skin.

This had a very watery consistency, with a mild fruity scent which some may find unappealing - I didn't have a problem with it personally. Coverage-wise, this was buildable and had a satin-like finish.

I can understand why some individuals love it so much: it's lightweight, has that fashionable dewy finish and portends to benefit the skin (although I've not personally experienced this).

Furthermore, it doesn't break the bank. The packaging is sturdy, albeit very drugstore-esque.

Unfortunately, it didn't agree with my skin. In fact, it broke me out slightly. Then again, I have uber-sensitive skin so that could be a reason why.

I would recommend this if you have non-sensitive, normal to dry skin (or even combination skin, with the aid of a primer).
