I purchased this product for $11.99 at Target due to the high reviews. In my opinion, this product is over-priced for a drugstore foundation. The texture is thicker and dries very fast. It gives medium to full coverage. It blends gorgeously and gives a dewy finish. I feel it only works best using a stippling brush. I recommend using a foundation primer or setting spray along with this, or it will NOT stay on all day. Lastly, since it does not have a pump, it does tend to get messy.

I'm so surprised to see so many negative reviews on this foundation seeing as so many girls on youtube love it, which is why I decided to give it a try. I've been using this foundation since December of 2011 along with the Sigma F82 brush and I've found that the combination of the two gives me perfect coverage. The coverage of the foundation itself is very buildable, it's medium but can be applied heavier, however I only put a light layer to even my skintone and then concealer for my undereye area and blemishes. The finish is very natural and while it is dewy and maybe not the most suitable for summer or warm climates, applying a powder over top mattifies my face. The packaging is quite annoying since you have to be careful not to pour too much onto the back of your hand, and accidental me always spills it, but if not careless then it's not an issue. Overall, I'd say it's a very natural looking foundation for every day and while a pricier drugstore item, each bottle lasts me about 2-3 months. I've repurchased again and again and will continue to repurchase!

I tried 3 different shades of this foundation and none matched that well...Classic Ivory seemed to match the best. I also tried different application methods (using fingers, using Sonia Kashuk stippling brush, using Elf flat top powder brush), and I couldn't get it to look right.
I wanted to like this, but it doesn't seem to work for me. :(

I am a pretty tanned gal and I must say that the darkest shade 120 tan is 2 shades too light for me. I am between NC 42/45 for reference, I love love LOVE this foundation very natural finish, I had have had many compliments of my skin looking fresh faced when I wear this:). Not a dupe for Nars sheer glow IMO, I like the neutrogena one better. What REALLY dissapoints me is their POOR selection of color range, many tan and dark skin complexions will not find justice in this foundation. I have too use a darker power for the foundation to match my skin tone. 1 lippie off for poor color selection, i dont mind the no pump since it is a drugstore foundation.
NEUTROGENA PLEASE INCLUDE DARKER COLORS FOR US DARKER COMPLEXION PEOPLE, then I will give this 5 lippies.

I love this foundation!!!!!!!
this foundation will give you healthy looking even toned skin.
I'm about a nc25-nc35 depending on whether I'm wearing self tanner or not.
I have this in shade 60 natural beige and it matches perfectly. i just wish it was slightly more yellow.
Also, I don't recommend this product if you have oily skin or if you plan on being outdoors in the heat or somewhere where you'll be sweating because this product will most likely rub off/fade away.
Otherwise, for those people with dry skin like me who can't get enough lotion on their face, this product will be great for you!
glowing natural finish
great everyday foundation
doesn't look mask-like
transfers, rubs off
has pretty decent, but not incredible lasting power =(
you'll need concealer for hard to cover dark circles/blemishes since this won't cover them

I really wanted to love this foundation after hearing a lot of great things about it. My first issue is the shade range. I'm very pale, and the first, lightest shade is RIDICULOUSLY yellow, and the shade after that is too dark. As for the finish, it felt a bit heavy on my skin, and when I touched my face it just felt...gross. Like it never felt like it really SET, even after applying powder. Not good on oily skin, either, it will just make your skin look even shinier.
One good thing about this foundation is that I DID see a difference in my skin after using it for a few weeks. Not a huge difference, just a tiny difference in clarity/tone, but that definitely wouldn't be a factor that would make me buy this, because I've been using that Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer and have seen better results from that.
I gave it a 4 on the price because it is pretty spendy for a drugstore foundation. I don't know, this product just did not work for me and I wouldn't recommend it.

I try to stick on a budget; i heard a lot of reviews how this would be a dupe for nars sheer glow, but half the cost. Pretty pricey for a drugstore foundation (if i remember right it was 15$), but I thought I would give it a try.
My first impression is that it was THICK. Really... gooey? goopy? Well anyways, it didn't have a good consistency. With that, blendability was just awful. It had a mission of staying on my pores. And its sticky... really way to heavy.
I bought this for the winter, seeing as I have very dry skin in the winter, and that the dewiness would counteract that (or maybe mask it up a little). The dewiness was more oily. Didn't like that either.
And it broke me out! I also had another foundation I was using at the time, and I noticed when I used this one, I started to get some bumps. I put one and two together and stopped using this foundation.
Maybe I never applied it correctly (six months later I tried again just to make sure I didn't like it... still didn't) so it's great if other people like it, but it's a serious no-go for me.
p.s. the packaging is awful! Wayyyy to much product comes out without the pump

I use the Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua as my HG foundation, but at $45/oz, its not cost effective.My skin is combination, acne prone. After returning several high end foundations (Smashbox and Tarte), I needed a quick solution to my Chanel without running to a department store. I've seen this foundation on YouTube and decided to jump the gun. I bought this for $12, with a coupon making it cheaper. Its a LOVELY foundation. Good coverage, and lasting power. My only complaint is that it a but more liquid-y than I like foundations, so its just a bit harder to work with. It gives a very natural look to my skin. I apply with both a brush and a beauty blender, and its a flawless finish. Its a WONDERFUL alternative to the higher end makeup. NO BREAK OUTS! As the Tarte Amazonian Clay made me break out terribly, this has shown no signs of irritation with my skin!

I really wanted to love this foundation after hear sooo many lovely things about it but unfortunately I didn't :(
-NOT dewy at all... sorry ladies but this doesn't compare to Nars and I wouldn't call this a dewy foundation... natural finish is more like it
-broke me out.... a lot,and I have dry skin!!! :( :( :(
-the packaging is a pain in the butt because the product is quite runny and extra care is needed to pour it out
-difficult to blend and very cakey

LOVE this foundation! I have sensitive skin that had been reacting badly to my previous foundation (Rimmel Lasting Finish, which gives great coverage and really DOES last a long time, but which felt like a mask on my face and broke me out a little), but this foundation feels so nice and light! I apply with a foundation brush and it provides good coverage. It's pretty thin, but very buildable. I use this over concealer and finish off with some setting powder, and I'm good to go! Highly recommend.

Wanted to love it but it was to dewy of a finish for my oily skin and it broke me out horribly !

Great drugstore foundation! I bought this in the color buff and it matches my skin perfectly (well not now because it's summer and I have a tan) but it matches my natural skin tone perfectly. It's pretty medium coverage, and not too matte or too shiny. I have oily skin and when I set this with powder it gives me a nice finish. The downside would have to be the packaging, it looks nice but I prefer pump foundations since they're less messy, but it's no big deal. I love this foundation and want to get another to match my summer skin!

My favorite foundation. I have sensitive skin and love this. Love the price, too.

no no no no no! i really wanted to be infatuated with this foundation, i wanted it to be my HG drugstore foundation but sadly i hated it. the consistency of this foundation is liquid which i thought would be great but its TOO "liquidy", it gives light coverage if any at all, does not cover up small discolorations in my skin and makes me look very very greasy! its not even dirt cheap either which sort of makes me wonder why i ever bought it, at least now i know that i tried it already and it just isn't for me!

So let me give you a background on my skin. I used to have very oily acne-prone skin until I used Accutane. So now my skin is clear for the most part with the occasional pimples and a few acne scars. My face is still pretty oily, sometimes combo. Anyways, this foundation makes my face quite flawless and natural looking. I am about an NC-25 with warm undertones. I really like the shade in 60 in natural beige because it has yellow undertones. The number 40 looks like it is my shade, but it is more pink. 50 looked darker than 60. So, therefore I chose 60. The color is amazing because it's so hard to find a yellow based foundation at the drugstore.
The formula is a little dewy, but makes my face "glow" without the shimmer. It's not the longest lasting foundation when worn alone, but I think it last longer than Revlon's Photoready. Because my skin is oily, I wear milk of magnesia as a primer and apply the Healthy Skin on top and finish with a powder. This combo has pretty good lasting power, especially in the summer. Another tip is, don't buff powder in a sweeping motion. Instead, I use a kabuki and press and dab it into my skin rather than using a swiping motion. I find if I do the sweeping motion, I'm wiping off some of the foundation.
I apply the foundation with a stippling brush or the Studio Tools powder brush from E.L.F. It works so much better than using a standard foundation brush. I find it streaky and not enough coverage when I apply this way. Plus I end up using more product. Stippling it makes my face look so flawless!
I'd say this coverage is medium and is great for an everyday use. I don't wear concealer, so this covers my imperfections nicely. Not perfectly, but I'm the type of person that doesn't care if a little flaw peeks through. I don't want to look too perfect everyday. Even when I sometimes get dry spots on my face, this does not accentuate the flakiness.
When I wear this foundation, people always rave about how good my skin looks.

I'm for sure a colorstay lover! for a few years now. I was watch youtube makeup video's and came across this foundation...started reading reviews etc.. looked and sounded great... scared to try it.. I did anyway... and said I'll just return it and get my usual colorstay if it's crap...well.. I came home.. took off my foundation and applied this one.. I was really shocked at the coverage it gave because it felt so thin... and natural...I applied half wit a concealer because I have sinus issues which equals dark circles... and the other half without.... of course the concealer gave more of the look i'm looking for then without. However even with colorstay when the circles are bad I use the concealer. So that didn't make a difference. I heard that the healthy skin didn't last in the heat.. so I said tomorrow in the heat is the true test....I wore it from 9am till 10pm and it lasted.. with some minor touch ups of powder. just like with the colorstay in the heat... I really do like it... It's not as thick as the colorstay which doesn't feel heavy or dewy.... I'm gonna keep it..and wear it some more and update later! :D ohh I knocked one off because it doesn't have a pump.. neither does the colorstay... but you can always add one... I was for a while wit colorstay just decided to stop it's not that big of a deal... just be light with pouring healthy skin because it's thin.. if you get to little you can always add more.... It doesn't dry as fast as the colorstay... you'll have patches if you have to add more of colorstay wit healthy skin it's not a problem.
When picking the color.. I held up my color in the colorstay up to the neutrogena and the closet was nude 40 and it's the perfect match :D in the colorstay i'm 200 nude.
first weeks later and I STILL LOVE THIS FOUNDATION !! & I feel like it helps clear up any break outs!!

This is unavailable in Canada, but I picked it up on a trip to the US. The store had no testers available, and I had a hard time choosing between the "classic ivory" and the "natural ivory". Both seemed equally light. The classic looked really yellow/orange and the natural looked more pink. I went with the natural ivory, but it is way too dark and not at all a colour match for me. It also oxidizes quite a bit once on my skin. It's really a shame that they don't have more of a range of shades available, because other than the unwearable colour, I really liked the texture and coverage of it. It sits very naturally on the skin and has a nice glowy finish. It felt great on my slightly dry skin and wasn't irritating, and it didn't make me break out. If you can find a shade to match your skin I would recommend it, but if you are very fair skinned and find liquid foundations tend to oxidize on you, then I'd stay away.

Personally, I found this product too cakey. I apply as little as I can for a natural coverage and it still ends up looking blotchy. I even have tried priming first, apply it then setting it.. There really wasn't much of a difference my first result. Definitely will not repurchase, I'm sticking to my hydrating Lioele waterdrop bb cream.

This product left my skin luminous and beautiful. I've been using Nars Sheer Glow for quite some time and now that I have found this, I'm hooked. This is definitely going to be my M-F makeup (leaving Nars for the weekend). If you want a great dupe for Nars, I definitely suggest this product and it won't hurt the pocketbook!

Okay first of all, this product is NOT available in canada!
Second I rated it a bit lower for the packaging, because it doesnt have a pump or a spatula.
This formula is amazing, I did notice my skin looking great when I use this formula. It's a bit thicker then my HG-Fit Me, so I'm going to be using this when I want slightly more coverage.
But I really hope it starts selling here in CANADA
