I really like this foundation. I normally don't wear foundation. Up until a couple years ago I never wore except briefly in high school, but I don't like the cakey, heavy feeling on my face. Last summer I started using Aveeno tinted moisturizer just so I could even out my skin a bit but without really using foundation. Anyway, I saw this product on a commercial the other day and I thought I would give it a try. It was between this or that air brush stuff by... Revlon I think? But they didn't have it. I shook the can up, pushed down and it sprayed across my bathroom. So I did it a little lighter and it came out fine. I was a little confused at first as I started to blend it, but I got the hang of it. My skin is really sensitive and since I don't wear foundation everyday I'm especially sensitive to putting stuff on my face. Started to itch a little bit but I'm used to it and just endured it until I finally stopped feeling the itch. I feel that it blended really well. It wasn't streaky like some drugstore foundations I've used in the past. Like many of the reviews I've seen for this, its probably not for someone who needs full coverage, but for someone like me who just wants a little as well as something to even out the skin, its perfect. Also I liked that there weren't a hundred shades to choose between. I hate that! I never know which one to pick, but there were really only two for pale skin. I chose classic ivory and it was a perfect match. :)

I am the kind of person who buys every new product out even if I'm not expecting anything great, however this foundation is fabulous! I don't wear foundation and have only bought a few in the past such as Maybellines dream matte mouse and maybelline dream cream. This is the best of them all! I found the mouse to be too cakey and dull and the dream cream slightly thick and through out the day my skin felt heavy and a little oily. This foundation is very lightweight however gives perrrfect coverage. It gives a matte yet dewy even look which is everything I had hoped for! After 3 hours I did notice slight shine however it wasn't oily so a little powder fixed it perfectly. It is so light it doesnt feel like you have any foundation on! This is not for people who want full coverage because it quite light-medium. It sinks into skin fairly quickly so people with dry patches may want to stay clear I'm afraid. This foundation is for people who want even skin tone, light feeling skin, light-medium coverage, a healthy glow and a happy purse/wallet (only £7 in superdrug). Hope I have helped and remember SHAKE WELL.

I bought this in porcelain 110. The problem. Lending and the fact that the foam came out color streaked and the dry itching I feel after using this is null and void since once I put it on, it was non exsistant. No color, coverage nothing. At first I could see a little color streaks that I blended and then there was nothing. I could feel it but could not see it and not in a good way. So I washed my face waited an hour, shook the can more and tried again. No bueno. The sprayer was hard to press down and I had to give a good push to he any out and then it squirted out way too much, so I thought. I used the entire glob and it just didn't show up. It turns from foam to watery liquid quickly and dries to fast. I feel like this is t making sense to my point but this is the best I can explain.

Did not like this product AT ALL for the following reasons:
1. Even though I purchased Classic Ivory 150 (I used Ivory 2 in Lancome's Teint Miracle, which is a perfect color match for me), this color was way too dark and orange. It quite literally looked oompa loompa orange to me after it oxidized on my hand and looked orange on my face. The packaging does abolutely nothing for giving an idea of what shade the foundation is and I believe that the shade names are misleading.
2. It foamed up nicely for about the first 5 seconds before it started to de-fluff and turned watery. This defeats the whole purpose of "foam"
3. Coverage was less than spectacular...minimal at most and definitely would not agree with anyone's comment that this provides "medium" coverage. It left my skin feeling very matte and dry and uncomfortable feeling.
This may be a good foundation for those looking for a very light coverage and with an oilier complexion. Would not recommend this for anyone with Dry/Normal or even Combo skin. Will NOT purchase this again and if I can't return, I am going to give it to my sister who has oilier skin and a darker complexion.

I bought this foundation yesterday. My first reaction was that the packaging was quite attractive and i liked that it was a kinda of can like a deodrant bottle. When i tried it out however i wasn't as impressed. I chose 030 sand. The shade was fine it was just the texture of the foam. If you don't shake the can enough it just comes out as a plain white foam. I found it hard to control how much foam came out and i didn't like the texture of it as i thought it was very watery. It provided a very light coverage which i made my face feel bare as i'm used to heavier coverage. 5 hours later it had nearly completley worn off. I would recommend this product to anyone who would like a very light coverage such as a younger girl starting out using make up or someone who has perfect skin. I would not buy this product again.

As a teenager, I love this foundation, it's light and looks lovely during the day time. However, for a night out I want something with more coverage, and this did not have this. After a week of using it, I also noticed my skin was a little more dry than usual. It also doesn't seem to last that long either. But when bought from superdrugs its well worth the price.

i was first sucked into buying this product because of the foam, but it turns out that it really works well ! it gives light~medium coverage, a semi-matte finish, and it lasts on me for about 6~8 hours without getting too oily . the nozzle is easy to work if you've used mousse foundations before, but if you're not careful, you might just spray foam everywhere. my only problem with this product is it is kind of hard to blend because it dries quickly, but it is definitely one of my favorite foundations !

I dont wear foundation everyday. I was looking for a foundation that when i do wear it, it wasnt cakey, or too matte, and looks natural. I bought this because it was a cool idea. I find that the first pump comes our orange but then afterwards it a pale color like my skintone. I blend it with a Sigma flat kabuki then powder with the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder and it gives nice converage. Very nice foundation.

Good for unifying your skin tone (given you get the right colour which seems to be a challenge with the whole foam thing). I had the "nude" colour and it's working fine.
Your skin needs to be very well moisturised/prepared before you put it on. It seems moisturising is not its main feature. Don't expect much coverage, it's really more a unifying thing it does. A bit watery too, so expect some freshness.
1. shake well, 2. press very softly and apply product in/on your hand, 3. with your fingers pick small quantities and apply them evenly all over your face, 4. keep patting and eventually spread.

I must say that this foundation works really well for my needs, but YMMV with this one! For starters, I prefer sheer to light coverage. Anything heavier and it feels uncomfortable on my skin. With that being said, anyone who wants or needs medium to full coverage will not like this product!!
On to my review:
My initial impression of this wasn't great. I saw it on an end-shelf display and was intrigued because I love new releases. When I saw what the foundation was, I was instantly skeptical. A foam? Foundation in a can? Gimmicky, right? With my better judgement screaming at me, I bought it.
I went home, read the directions on the back of the can, and applied my new makeup. This is where the 4 rating comes in. You must press the nozzle very lightly or way too much foam comes out. It's a lot like shaving cream. As soon as the foundation hits air, it grows to triple its size. So I wasted most of the first pump, but that's okay. I applied it by dipping my fingers into it and quickly rubbing it into my skin in a circular motion until all areas of my face were done.
I instantly loved what I saw. This has a matte, yet natural, look that still allows my skin to show through. It is also very lightweight, which only enhances how this looks. I have combination skin that many (most, in fact) foundations make more oily; I had all but given up trying to find one that didn't do this. Nude Airfoam is the first foundation to agree with my skin, so the foam part must be good for some of us!
It wears decently, but no foundation is going to look freshly applied all day long, so, being realistic, I do need to blot and touch-up with powder later in the day. This is not a big deal to me. I'm around NW20 in MAC (but this shade is slightly too pink) and I'm using Creamy Natural, which is a good fit.
Price is dirt cheap, around $8. Packaging, like I said, is tricky initially but once you establish the right pressure for the amount you want, it's not so bad. Application, for the most part, is fine if not a bit awkward at first.
I really hope this review will help some of you decide if this will work for you. It has done wonders for me!

I bought this makeup in the Cocoa shade and it covered well, but it did not fuse with my skin. It is like the makeup just sat on top of my skin, which made it obvious that I was wearing makeup. I prefer the Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse better than this makeup.

Im an NC 40 at the moment, but an NC42 in the summer, so I wear this in Sun Beige. It looked the most yellow-toned out of the selection, which is why I purchased it. The shade itself is a very good match. I'm used to using more heavier coverage foundations because of all the acne scarring I have, so I was surprised as to how sheer this product was. I needed at least two layers to subdue most of the redness on my face, so the coverage it very light. When dispensed, I applied the product with my hands and started working it into my skin. It felt very watery and dried extremely quickly. When I tried adding another layer, it was difficult to blend. So instead of rubbing, I started patting the product into my skin to work a second layer on. The finish, however was very nice. It was matte, but very natural looking. Although it did not cover my acne marks, my skin tone looked more even in general. So I would probably use this when running errands, or for days I don't want to put much makeup. It doesn't feel heavy or waxy on my face, so I think it would be good for people with oily skin because it controlled my oil very well. Those who want more coverage will probably not like this product because it is almost impossible to layer on. So if you have perfect skin, or just plain oily skin, this foundation might be great for you!
Edit (3/6/2012): I returned it. It was too watery for me. Though it gives a nice light coverage, it took time to blend in, and I felt it wasn't worth the money. Thank goodness Target allowed me to return it with the receipt!

So I actually got given this in the shade nude as a friend didn't like it as it didn't give good coverage for her. I personally like it but I use it over a bb cream. I find it doesn't settle into lines and is so natural looking. I'm not one for wearing thick foundation as it looks so unnatural. I prefer foundation what enhances the skin. I will buy it again as I had no problems shaking the can or squirting it. Never had just white foam come out either.

To me this foundation is "OK"! I would say not to follow the directions on using this, it really doesn't work by blending it in circular motion, just use it the way you want! I just apply little product on my face and then I blend it with a foundation brush, and I find that it works best! I don't recommend this because this is mostly for ppl with almost perfect skin!

The foam does nothing it just melts into a big mess and it looked orange on me
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Brunette, Wavy, Fine Eyes: Brown
This is just another gimmicky product to attract curious foundation addicts. The foam texture is absolutely pointless as it melts down to a liquid texture as soon as you blend it into the skin.So why not use a liquid straight away?Also, it is hard to blend and the coverage is so sheer it has nearly no effect. I would never recommend this to anyone as there are so many better cheaper or similarly priced DS foundations out there!

I actually liked this foundation, but it broke me out. It started a whole string of breakouts that I haven't had happen in literally 6 years. I usually get a couple here and there hormonally, but that's it..then this came along and now I've had breakouts for about 3 weeks! I picked the lightest shade and I'm around NW15 in MAC foundations and it matched me pretty dead on. It is light coverage but very layerable. It's perfect for day to day in my opinion. It also held up well all day on my oily skin. By the end of the day I only had a very very slight glow. If it didn't cause me to get such bad breakouts, I would love this and repurchase. If you're looking for an easy, no hassle foundation that gives light coverage, then go ahead and get this, but beware if you have sensitive skin!

I bought this in classic ivory, because porcelain looked way too light. It's a strange fake tan orange color that I blended like crazy to get a nice overall "I just got back from camping for a week" effect. It also settled into the little flakes around my nose. The packaging shade is really off and there are no testers. Waste of money.

I really like this, it gives good coverage as long as you learn to apply it right.

I don't know about this whole airbrush in a can lol :) the coverage is very very sheer so its like u not wearing anything u have to have perfect skin for this to wk for ya but if that's the case then why use foundation right? The colors r very hard to choose being that u cant see inside the aluminum can!
