I have always avoided liquid foundation because I felt like my face couldn't breath and well I really didn't need it, so why wear it. But with being 29 now and starting to notice "changes" ....the time had come. I have tried at least 25 different foundations. But this one is different. It blends very nicely. I have applied it with a brush and a sponge. I recommend the sponge. And what the other reviewer did wrong was apply a creme foundation with a wet sponge. This is only recommended if you want a dewy look. I go for more of a matte finish. Use the Laura Mercier sponges dry and a little bit of this stuff goes along way. You can build the coverage and it has light reflectors that help diminish the appearance of fine lines. You can also pair this with the concealer if you have a hard to cover spot. Also be sure to use the foundation with the pressed OIL FREE power. Which I apply with a brush Not the applicator it comes with. This will complete the look and believe me - it is flawless and worth every penny. I get so many complements on my makeup and my complexion and how I glow. I also recommend the under-eye reflective powder for anyone who has dark circles to cover. The stuff is amazing and no one else has anything like it!!
This was an unexpected buy for me but I'm glad I did buy it. Very nice color. Non sticky. It last about as long as regular glosses last. This is definitely something different from the glosses I normally buy from urban decay and mac but its nice and economical.
Saw a similar color online and have been trying to match it. Success! Long wearing even through washing dishes when paired with Revlon Top Coat!
Love love this. super gentle, removes makeup, has mild exfoliating capabilities... also, this doesn't piss of my skin.

LOVE this product. In the past I've never really had a problem with dry skin (just sensitive, somewhat combination but mostly normal), but for some reason this winter, and particularly in the last week, my skin was SO dry, especially on the sides of my chin under my mouth, I literally was putting on moisturizer 10x a day and still getting flaky skin, and was unable to put on any makeup. I tried more expensive brands which didn't really help, and after some online research, finally ran to my drug store the other day and picked this up - SOO happy I did! The effects were immediate - the next day my skin was basically back to normal, dry skin and flakes were gone :) I've only been using it a few days, so I can't say if it will make me break out or not - I hope not! Anyways, if you are experiencing severely dry skin, I highly recommend you try this cream!
I wear this sunscreen every day and I love it. It is super sheer and light and great under makeup. It can leave a white film on your face if you have it too thick in an area, but this is easily buffed into your skin. It doesn't feel at all like you're putting spf 50 on your face. And it lasts a long time - a little of this goes a long way. I bought my first bottle in April and I just had to replace it in December. That seems to justify the price in my book.
There super cheap, but thats where the goodness ends. You need at least 5 sheets to get the same amount of oil off as other brands. Not good for oily skin, only for people who need occasional touchup...
Affordable, goes on smooth and easy to control. I can create perfect lines every time, and best of all, cheap. Will be buying more.
