I have this in the Combination/Oily formula. First I want to say the thing that won me over with this foundation was the oil control. I have oily combination skin and by lunchtime i always find my chin and nose very oily even with powder over the top but with this foundation i don't even need to set with powder and it still last 10-12 hours. I even went out to a party in this and after 6 hours of hot, intense dancing i was still matte and shine free. Wooooahhh.. Definetly call it a medium coverage foundation, it is buildable but not quite full. Colour range is great and 110 Ivory is a perfect match for me. The lack of pump is annoying but i've got used to that now so it doesn't bother me nor does the slightly odd smell. The one thing that knocked off the lippie was the way it dries so quickly i am unable to use regular foundation brushes (MAC 190 etc) or even my Louise Young LY34.. just looked streaky and caky,, ughhh.. only brush that works with this foundation is a flat top kabuki and the one i use is the Sigma F80 and it works like a beauty. Recommend if you are on a beauty budget. Affordable and easy to get hold of.. plus sometimes if there is a deal on Revlon products it's even cheaper.
I love all Chanel packaging and how chic and elegant they all are. I find that this is really get as a setting powder over foundation or TM. It gives off a matte look which is a plus. However when you apply it to bare skin, I found that it had no effect. It didn't even out my skintown or make me look super good.
I love NARS packaging and when it was released in the collection (can't remember which one) I bought it immediatley. It is a very matte eyeshadow and the colour is super cool and pigmented. My only problem with this product is that it can be applied subtly but when I want a more vibrant look it takes a lot of product to make the colour really stand out. I don't think I will ever reach the end of the product but if i ever do I probably won't repurchase.
I am a huge fan of illamasqua products and when they came to birmingham, the blush in Lover was my first purchase. I love it so much and have never had to use another blush since. The colour is very pigmented but you can use it subtly or build up the colour for a more dominate look. It definetly lasts all day and is easily blendable. I adore the packaging and when I finally run out of it I will certainly repurchase :)

I love love love this product! It's so amazing. I got this foundation on the hope that it would give me a lovely matte look and it does. The packaging is super sleek and elegant and I recommend it to all my friends. They always ask me isn't it a bit pricey.. well sort of but you definetly get what you pay for. The colour range is great and the shade 4 is a perfect match for me. So easy to apply and is very light on skin. It even lasts me a whole 8 hours of wear and this foundation is irreplaceable from my makeup draw :):) UPDATE: Now on my second bottle of this stuff and i'm still in love with it <33

I reallly loved this foundation so much when I first bought it. Amazing packaging (by far the best so far). It sinks in so quickly to the skin and yet is has some decent coverage. I found that you can't build upon coverage ... instead it builds on the colour and turns orange. My only problem with this foundation; is the colour range.. very poor and focusses on darker shades so people with fair skin tones would struggle with this.
