I ran out of my Chanel Mat Lumiere foundation which is $50+. I wanted something cheaper, but that still allowed me to stay matte throughout the day. I went through a few until I found this one and I'm very happy!! It's a great color match (I use the normal/combo skin formula in ivory) and it's much much cheaper. The coverage is smooth and not cakey at all (which I had a problem with with MAC foundation). And it doesn't make me break out either. Will definitely repurchase.

Love the scent. It's extremely refreshing, especially in the morning when you're trying to wake up. It lathers really well and is pretty cheap! Will definitely be repurchasing! Love this stuff!
The actual product is only ok for me. The smell is ok, but not great, and the lather is ok, but not great. The problem I have with this is that it leaves a really obvious, thick film in my tub and I don't want to deal with cleaning that up everyday. Won't be repurchasing.

Love this stuff!! Cheap, smells great (like sour apple mostly), and lathers really well. The scent definitely helps you feel fresh and helps wake you up in the morning. Will definitely repurchase.

I love the sheer color and the packaging (I hate lip products in pots), but it has absolutely no staying power and for some reason you have to squeeze extra hard to get the stuff out of the tube. I got it as a gift, so I won't be purchasing this.
This is one of my staples. It's on the sheer side, which is good for work. It goes great with my pale skin with yellow undertones and also goes well with whatever I'm wearing usually. I am about to start my 3rd tube and will keep repurchasing. I probably wouldn't have chosen it on my own but the MAC SA suggested it and I've been using it ever since.
