Didn't like this on my cimbination skin. It looked cakey and dry..was hoping for a miracle considering the price! Guess i'll have to go back to using mac studio fix pressed powder
this is an OK powder..i used it alot in the past couple of years but have realised the shade i use does not compliment my skin anymore and makes me look cakey. Unfortunately i will be moving on to a new powder as this does not deliver as good as it used to. Maybelline dream matte will now be my go to powder as it does not make me look cakey and has a certain glow.

Makeupalley has helped me find my new pressed powder! i checked out reviews on alot of pressed powders on this site and this powder seemed to have the best reviews (for a drugstore product). I needed a new powder to set my nars sheer glow foundation and this stuff is amazing! It doesn't look cakey and does the job of mattifying my face without making me look cakey. Try this powder you won't regret it..
this provides great coverage for acne scars BUT clogs pores which LEADS to acne! stay away if you want your skin to stay clear! i recommend bobbi brown long lasting natural finish. It keeps my acne prone skin free of acne and gives a nice sheer coverage

I had very high expectations on this product (considering the price- £45!!!), sadly it did not satisfy me! Yes it's a good foundation if your looking for the 'dewy' look but it didn't hold onto my skin for long and caused me to breakout on my cheeks and forehead. But i guess one positive is that the first hour into wearing it, it made my skin look flawless. Covering every acne scar and blemish it did a great job. If only it held on for atleast six hours and didn't cause spots i would've definately purchased this. After two hours of wearing it i was a greaseball, no matter how much i blotted or applied powder it always seemed to tuen my face oily. That being said this may be great for those with dry skin.
This foundation has never broke me out..i have been wearing it for the past five months and definately like this for everyday use...its very light and sadly does not cover all my acne scars very well but will still carry on wearing it as most other foundations are either too heavy for daywear or break me out...the MA gave me a shade too light (after testing on my cheek) ...it had looked fine in store but in sunlight is a complete different colour..so i have to top up with bronzer. Overall it's an okay foundation and am willing to pay that price only because it keeps my skin clear.

This foundation was one of the best foundations i had ever tried! unfortunately they discontinued my shade (N7) which is why i've given it 3 lippys :( .i can't repurchase in any other shade as they are either too light or too pink for my skin..it was the first foundation i had ever tried and turned alot of heads whenever i wore it! i've been on a quest ever since to find a foundation similar to this and the closest one so far has got to be nars (sheer glow) bt still not as good as this! please l'oreal bring back my shade!!!!!
Yuk! What a disappointment..thank goodness I referred to a sample rather than the full bottle!..the coverage is too heavy and cakey...this foundation will accentuate dry spots! caused bad breakout on my t zone..may work for others but certainly wasn't what I was looking for..oh well..
I recently tried a sample of this foundation (in shade stromboli). Compared to several other foundations i've tried (Giorgio armani designer foundation, bobbi brown, mac, estee lauder,clinique, loreal, revlon,) i am impressed and must say it's definately a keeper! I am going to purchase this as i am very happy with the results. I have very acne prone skin and this has not broken me out yet. The shade is very close to my own , i have struggled over the past few years to find a foundation that will satisfy me in every way! Edit >>>> everytime i've worn this foundation i get compliments on my skin. My friends seem to adore the shade and commented on how 'nice' my skin looks, and my boyfriend thought i wasn't wearing any makeup when i had this on, which is definately a plus as he likes the natural look and so do i!
