bought this because some yt gurus were praising this, but it's such a sh*tty product i hate this so much lmao it is literally just a bottle of tinted garbage. EXTREMELY cakey, not that great coverage, clings to dry patches and looks flaky on my skin (i have oily combo skin), and is always hard to get the right amount of product out of the bottle but i tend to not like bottle foundation anyway. very drying formula, but that's to be expected because i think it's supposed to be a matte foundation. has not helped my acne either.

I tried this a few years ago and hated it so much I didn't even finish the bottle which is really saying something considering it's pretty pricey for a drugstore foundation. It's a small bottle and it's very hard to get the product out. Once you get it out and onto your face the coverage is terrible, the color is terrible, and it's SO dry. I'm a girl with super oily skin who loves a matte or oil control foundation but I hated this!! Would not recommend.

This stuff is a-ok for combination/oily/break out prone skin. The catches being the coverage is light/medium so you might want a concealer. The bottle sucks because it's hard to get the stuff out and isn't the most hygienic
I like using this stuff in the summertime because my thicker foundations tend to get runny. This has a very dry matte finish I like but don't recommend for someone with dry skin.
This definitely isn't a foundation for everyone, but if you fall into any of the 3 categories I think you should give it a try.

I like that this has acne treatment added. The coverage can be a bit lacking, but, I love that it doesn't break me out. The shades are a bit light but it is something I can work with. I hope they do not quit making this foundation. I ve used it on and off for years and always have a bottle on hand no matter what :-)

I love this foundation it doesnt clog my pores at all what so ever it helped with my acne if anything . i always have difficulty finding a drugstore foundation that has my under tone since i have yellow undertone and most of the drugstore foundations have a pink undertone to them.. It helps me keepi g my skin matte it also lasts on the skin... It doesnt feel cackey on the skin it feels more natural and looks more natural since it has no shine to it. I payed 12.49 For it kinda pricey the one i would use costed me under $8. But i thinks it worth every single penny im going repurchase this when in out .. I hate that it doesnt have a pump tho

Just finished an entire bottle of this. I originally purchased last summer for a breakout marathon then put it away for winter when my skin goes combo and has fewer breakouts. I busted it back out again when my skin went full on summer wacko again. I hardly ever finish a bottle of foundation and I'm very proud of this one. It's okay as a foundation. I can't say for sure if it helped my breakouts because I was using other treatments simultaneously. The use of this certainly didn't hurt or make them worse, though. It's a tad pricey for drugstore, imo. Medium coverage at best, I would have to apply a second thin layer over problem areas to cover. Didn't make me oilier or emphasize fine lines, etc. I would apply with a Beauty Blender. I will not repurchase this, however, because the Maybelline baby skin line has a similar formula for breakouts and I prefer that one. It's also cheaper.

I bought this foundation because I was suffering from a severe acne breakout the past year. I only got it because a friend of mine had acne and it covered her blemishes fairly well. When I applied it on my face does look flawless and it completely got rid of the oiliness but after a few hours my face got itchy and it felt super dry. By the end of the day when I got home I washed it off and immediately notice redness all over and the small pimples bulging out into big painful cysts!! After that I have to change my skincare routine and steer clear of putting on foundation for almost a month just to avoid aggravating those bumps even more! My face has gotten a lot better since then and I have already tossed that bottle into the trash. Never getting it again and never recommending to anyone unless your skin is tough like a rock.

I just switched to this foundation and I love it! I was looking for something that would help my rough, dry, bumpy skin. I break out and don't know if it's allergies or acne ): but this foundation "calms" my skin. It's made my skin look smoother and brighter. The coverage is light to medium, but I can live with that.

I think this foundation has potential to be fantastic. However, I have had problems in the past with Neutrogena and Covergirl foundations being too pink on my cool toned fair skin. If you are able to find a shade that matches, I think this foundation would work great for you!
