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.

I heard so many good reviews about this and many of my friends use this too. It looks great on them! I was really excited to try it and the shade Rose Porcelain matched perfectly. However, it broke me out very badly :( clogged pores all over.
Im from Asia and over here, the bottle is sold with a pump which is wonderful. it's kind of runny and can be messy to apply. but its very buildable so coverage is okay
sad that it didn't work out for me!

I love the range of shades. I used to wear Porcelain. It used to be a great,creamy liquid foundation that had buildable coverage, satin finish, and lasted a reasonable amount of time.

Then...they added sunscreen and reformulated. shade range is still great, but it just goes on chalky. I genuinely hate the feel of it on my face. Clings to dry patches,and it doesn't apply evenly.

I wish they hadn't messed with a good thing. Or maybe this was just a better formula for oily skin.

I have super, super pale skin and this is one of the only drugstore foundations I can use, so this is a major must-have in my makeup bag. Doesn't look orange on my face and is extremely blendable and buildable.

The finish is very matte - but if add a drop of coconut oil to it, it is a little dewy.
I have severe acne and I don't need concealer when I use this foundation. I put a little on my hand, do one overall layer, then go back and get the more pinker spots again.

At the end of the day it is a little oily. If you over-layer it, it becomes cakey. However they have a wide range of shades for a good price and I can't find anything else light enough.

This is a review of the new formula, I've never tried the old one so I can't compare.
I'm Chinese and I've got a yellow undertone. I don't have serious skin problems, but I always have some pimples I want to hide.
When I buy foundation I look for a natural looking formula and a good coverage and lasts until I get home from school.
I really wanted to love this foundation, but I just couldn't. There are several reasons for wich I don't like this product, one of them is that it's not yellow enough for me, but that could've been accept if it lasted, after 5 hours (when I finish school) there is nothing left on my face, I've tried using a primer and I always set my makeup with powder, but nothing can make this foundation last until I get home. I bought w3 golden beige. The formula is quite nice and it blends nicely and it has a wonderful finish, pity it doesn't last.
I'm going to finish the bottle, but I won't buy it again if I don't manage to find a way to make it last.
I think that 18 € is far too much for this foundation, fortunately I bought it on sales for only 10€
Ps. This happened shortly after I wrote the original review:
I used this on a sunny day and when the sun was shining on my face I looked like Edward Cullen in twilight, a horrible effect, I didn't notice it until a friend of mine looked at me and asked what product I was wearing and told me I sparkled. I was horrified, but I'm still going to finish it, in this time of the year it isn't too sunny

I'm personally not a fan of this foundation as I like a medium to full coverage and matte finish. This foundation is the complete opposite.
It has a relatively low coverage (due to the very watery consistency), however with an extra layer it can be built up to a medium coverage.
It has a dewy finish, so if you like a matte finish to your skin stay away! For that reason, perhaps this foundation would be best if you have dry to normal skin rather than oily.
The colour match wasn't great either. I'm usually a nc30 in mac and using the website 'findation.com' I decided the colour W4 would be the best match. How very wrong I was! The colour is incredibly orange on me.
That being said; the positives are that it does look quite natural, and if you want a dewy looking, low coverage foundation this would be a good option.

As a side note, I find this to be very similar to the MAC Face and Body Foundation, perhaps if you're on a budget and looking for a dupe this would be good!

I didn't like it a few years ago, and I've rediscovered why.

I love this stuff when it's on, and after a couple of hours all is good. It truly is a perfect match and gives me gorgeous uniform skin. I use 1N, and it's the ONLY foundation that suits my (almost white) skin tone at a price point that I can afford.

After 3+ hours of wear it just kind of starts... doing this weird combination of evaporating and melting off. My extremely dry face looks oily (?!), and it's like the foundation just says 'Nope!' to sticking to my dry patches and areas where I really need the coverage. Like it actually looks like it's being repelled! I'm left looking spotty and oily, even worse than with no makeup. How this is even possible when my skin is so dry is beyond me.

Don't be taken in by the hype and promises of a 'reformulated' version, if the original did not suit you.

Edit: I've amended my review to bump the rating a bit. The color match is worth the inconvenience of the oil problem, and I've found that if I use a good setting powder, it can wear for a couple of hours without needing blotting and a touch-up. Weird to have to use powder and blot for the first time in my life (while skin dryness remains very visible) but it is what it is.

What to like: affordable price, buildable coverage, good consistency (not too runny)
What NOT to like: no pump!

I got mine in buff beige (N4) because my online store ran out of my usual W4 (natural beige). I am an NC 35.
