I have actually repurchased this 4 times (2 small bottle the first times) and I must say I love it. I am extremely acne prone and have had no break outs! I use this day and night for a light-ish moisturizer in fact I put my makeup on right after this and even blend this with my concealer for a more natural look. I am very impressed with this line of skin are! Only complaint is the price.. Not bad but being a college student I don't always have the spending money and I can't go a day without this! But over all love it!
I absolutely love this! I have a lot of acne scaring that this DOES NOT cover however I use my prolong wear concealer to cover that with even full coverage foundations. What I love about this is the finish it makes your skin look so radiant and healthy defiantly can not tell I am even wearing foundation! Will repurchase this over and over and may even be able to call it my HG another amazing thing is the amount of product you get it equals out to even less then a drugstore foundation. The only con I have is that I was color matched to C1 and for some reason they don't sell that shade in the 4 oz bottle? So I will need to go to the counter and see if I can wear N1 before ordering online. But oh we'll still amazing:) I use prolong wear concealer (mixed with moisturizer) face and body then set with mineralized skin finish for the most natural, healthy, and non cakey look:)
Pros: looks really natural like skin (don't like foundation that looks like a mask). It blends well and has a light-medium(ish) coverage which I don't mind since I use concealer for problem areas. Does not break me out (which is amazing since most things do). I really love this foundation after i apply my skin looks very healthy and clear. I recently repurchased to use for my wedding day (looked good in photos but to light) The price is around 15.00$ to me which is not bad considering you are getting 1.24oz of product vs. most foundations that are 1.0oz (including MUFE HD which is $42!) Cons: color range is terrible I get the lightest shade and have to add the tiniest amount of the Cargo tinted moisturizer that is alot of shades darker to match my skin tone which I don't mind because I think the mixture leaves an even better finish. The only other things that I dont really care for is that the packaging is opaque so you can't tell how much foundation you have left (& my Ulta is ALWAYS sold out) and sometimes the pump gets stuck. However this is a great foundation for everyday
Bought this a few days ago and I LOVE it it looks just like skin but better and feels really light. This would be my HG foundation if 3 hrs into wearing it I hadn't developed a few cystic pimples. UGH such a disappointment since I don't think I will ever find a foundation that compares to this one!

Liked it for a while when I started getting into makeup but don't like how thick and mask like it is not to mention how bad it oxidizes!
Looked okay but lasted forever. I would probably buy again if it hadn't broke me out.

Works good when used in three layers have yet to find a drugstore primer that works as good. Defiantly will buy again since I have had the same one for over a year and still have tons!
