I've used this foundation for several years and really like it. It goes on smoothly and leaves a dewy finish that provides medium coverage. This foundation is easy to blend and I apply it with a foundation brush and then smooth it with my fingers. My experience is that it last all day with some powder touch ups and is a very good all purpose foundation.. Would definitely recommend.
This is another great Chanel foundation. I purchased it a few months ago and wear it when I want fuller coverage. The scent is nice and the foundation does not oxidize on my skin. It goes on easily and provides a lovely finish. I apply with a foundation brush and that works well with this foundation. I definitely recommend it!
This is a really beautiful foundation and worth the money paid. I keep several foundations in my arsenal and use this one when I'm going for a glowy, natural look. It goes on smoothlyand smells great. It's buildable so you can put on more and get more of a fuller coverage look. Definitely recommend this!

This stuff is amazing! When properly applied (I use a kibuki brush) and used sparingly, it finishes your face so that your makeup lasts throughout the day. It's my new HG powder.

I use shade 117 and this is an excellent foundation. Very natural looking but buildable. Goes on easily and you need very little to cover a lot when using a foundation brush. I finish with the HD finishing powder and the finish lasts all day. Definitely worth the money.
This is my HG concealer, after trying MANY to cover my undereye dark circles. In order to work well, you have to properly prepare your skin with moisturizer (and primer, if you use it). To cover my undereye circles, I apply my foundation first (after moisturizer and primer) and blend with foundation brush/fingers. Then I apply the more yellow side of the compact (I use SC-2) with a concealer brush to the dark circles in a triangle under my eye and pat lightly with my finger to blend the edges. Then a small amount of the skin colored side of the compact and again pat lightly with finger to blend. Once done with that, I take a sponge wedge and lightly dab MUFE finishing powder over that. Then I finish the rest of my makeup. Using this techinique and product, not only do my very dark circles disappear but the concealeer stays all day and looks realy natural. This is great stuff!
I used this product for about a month and then developed the worst contact dermatitis I have ever seen. I don't even have sensitive skin and am generally not allergic to chemical sunscreens. This one has something that my skin definitely did not like! It took me 2 weeks to get rid of the irritation. Definitely not for me.
I've used this product for about the past 7 years and it has been great. The coverage can range from very light to heavy, depending on how you put it on. The colors are great too. I use Perfekt in the sping/fall/winter and California Girl in the summer. This product is also great for a more natural look.
Sunscreen -Neutrogena - Ultra Sheer Dry-Touch Sunblock SPF 55

I've had great results from this product. For me, it sinks into my skin well and I don't have any trouble with it "balling up" or causing breakouts. It has a mat finish, which is great and it doesn't feel greasy. I use Colorscience mineral makeup over this, so maybe that is why I don't seem to have any problems applying makeup over this sunscreen. I try other sunscreens on my face from time to time and always come back to this one.
