I am a NW35 and have a really hard time finding my shade. I use this in Tawny Beige, and I have tried them all, including Chanel,Shiseido and Urban DecayM although I really like cream to powders and full coverage foundies, this one is the best one for coverage and takes well in photos which is very important to me. I set it with my Chanel Pressed Powder in Dore (I think it is number 3) my skin looks so even. This also doesn't break me out and I don't usually use a primer. It has the consistency of Lancomes Teint Idole which is one of my favorites. I'm usually a Department store mu junkie,because I really prefer quality, but this is a very good foundie and I hope they never dc this!

This was way too heavy/thick for me and looked unnatural. It also felt dry on my skin and yet I got oily after a few hours (??) Might be better for someone who needs heavy coverage. Wouldn't buy again.

Sally Hansen/Carmindy have done a great job of creating a fabulous, reasonably-priced foundation with wonderful colors. I am an NW15 and have had a heck of a time finding a good foundation that doesn't break the bank. Porcelain is perfect for me: the coverage is excellent, it hides my rosacea and stays on for the day. It comes in a pump bottle (!) that allows you to easily control the amount of foundation you use. I am a fan of Carmindy - she does a beautiful job making up "real" women on "What Not To Wear" - and she has put that know-how into a solid line of products.

This foundation is awesome!! Coverage is weightless! Light to medium, quite buildable, and amazingly natural looking. It's paraben free (the whole Natural Beauty line is). It has Vitamin A and some nice botanical antioxidants.You could stick a famous high end label on this and charge $60 instead of its very reasonable $11 price tag.
I purchased it in "Porcelain," which I think is too light for my NC20 skin. I am not sure I can make it work, or if I will exchange for another color, or wind up having to mix colors to get the right one for me. It will be worth the effort, whatever I decide! I stippled it on with an ELF Studio powder brush, over primer for medium coverage, and it lasted 8 hours for me - no caking, flaking, color changing, transfer. It doesn't *look* like makeup, just looks like pretty, healthy skin (minus redness, blotchiness, capillaries, and my other various imperfections). I used a little CS silica powder over my t-zone with it.
I like the weight and the finish of this foundation more than Colorstay's. I don't know yet if its staying power is comparable. I frequently wear Colorstay for 10 - 12 hours. I'll update when I know.
