(110 porc ivory) Totally disliked this at first, but I didn't wanna waste it so I kept going back, trying to make it work. I just recently realized it was the pad I hated. I'm not a germaphobe so I don't mind warming the cream with my finger then putting it to my face and repeating over and over again. I was surprised there wasn't a mirror under the flip top, if they couldn't put both in the compact I would have preferred a mirror to a sponge. Would have been the ultimate in an on-the-go foundation. I was using a combination of the Almay CC cream w the Maybelline Fit Me stick over but I ran out so now I'm giving this a go. I prefer what I WAS doing but it's nice to know this pot doesn't need to go to waste. I have a pot of the whipped mousse but it's not a good shade so I can't go out in that, but I imagine the whipped mousse over the Almay CC would be more matte like the look I was going for. This smooth mousse, after having time to set, leaves a dewy finish. With my Maybelline Mineral Power translucent finishing powder on top, I go totally matte. If I go over just the T-zone I am able to keep the dewiness on my cheeks. I hope I don't start breaking out from this, that's all I ask.

This is my regular foundation, although I don't like how it can be very orange looking without powder, but in all, it's an easy inexpensive product

I love this but does anyone else think it feels really wet when you put it on??

I started using this cream foundation after I developed an allergy to my beloved mineral foundation. I couldn't stand going back to liquid foundation, and this is a necessary compromise (with oily, acne-prone skin, I really need foundation). I've been using this for about a month.

The coverage is excellent! My only complaint is that even the lightest shade is almost too dark for me, and since the coverage is so good, I have to be careful how much I apply. It does give me what I call "clammy face", and I really need a finishing powder to reduce shine with this. There is noticeable settling into fine lines after applying, but I smooth them out after it settles and I haven't noticed them re-settling throughout the day (this goes back to being careful of how much you apply).

The packaging is great for a drugstore brand. It is a bit annoying at first to unscrew the top to get to the foundation, and having the applicator in the top compartment--but after a few days, I really got to liking this packaging. It's great to just throw in your bag, no worries about spills or leaks. Not sure how I feel about using a sponge to apply (health-wise), but I do appreciate how the triangular shape makes it fairly easy to apply and blend.

I don't think i've ever had a product that has made me look flawless. This does.. I love everything about it. The packaging is great and the fact it comes with a sponge is great! I kid you not it makes me look absolutely flawless. My skin is about as dry as it can get with eczema and winter coming up, This is super moisturizing and i can tell it will be my go to for a long time. A few touch ups in my t-zone a day which is no biggy at all. I totally recommend if you have dry skin! If you had oily i'd try the dream matte, I've heard that works better for oily. LOVE YOUUU

I'm in love with this product! It goes on fantastic for me! As for the cons.... I honestly can't say I've found any! I set this with my Dream Mattress Powder and I'm absolutely crazy about it! ~ XOXO Bay

what can i say about this foundation, the color match for me was great! it goes on smooth (as its name indicates) looks super natural (i dont even have to brush powder over my face to set) and its really creamy and hydrating. medium to full coverage. blends nicely. covers my redness and blemishes well. only problem is there is something in it that causes me to break out, so sadly even though i loved it at first, (thought it was my HG foundation) i couldnt use it, and yes i gave it time (2 weeks) and even stopped using it a couple days, then tried again thinking it was my cleansing routine that was flawed, and i still broke out, also the packaging isnt all that sanitary. so give it a try, if your skin doesnt react to it youll probably really love this foundation.

I have mild acne and as a highschool girl, I want to cover it up! This product does cover it and has a natural look to it. I love it and for 10 bucks I think it is worth its price but there isnt much product in the package with is a slight bummer but other than I like it :)

I use the 350 honey beige as a 'cream blush/bronzer'.

The texture is very creamy, moist, and smooth. Very easy to blend into my skin and leaves a really nice moisturized dewy look on my cheek bones.

I took off a star because this foundation is no "mousse." We all know mousse when we see it (think Max Factors discontinued mousse); this isn't it. I wouldn't even call it a "cream."

However, for the money, it's pretty good, though I had to use moisturizer on my face first. It glides on easily, and lasts longer than I thought it would. I'll pick it up again, if I don't first find another replacement for the Max Factor liquid (which I used when the whipped cream mousse was discontinued long ago), which was creamy and unlike any of the drying liquids available today. I should have stocked up on that like a previous reviewer did!
