Unlike many others, I did not have a hard time applying this (upper and lower lashline). Though I do wish it was a smidge creamier. It is such a beautiful color that makes my brown eyes really stand out. I gaave it a 3 for the price because for such little product, it is pretty pricey. But, I will buy it again.
I can't believe I stopped using this to try other products. Like the old saying goes; why fix what ain't broke? I've tried several skin care regimens from high end to drugstore and NOTHING has worked like Noxzema! My mother used this and she had beautiful skin even as a smoker so when I came 'of age', my mom got me started on this. Everytime I use this product, my face is so soft, balanced, and most importantly; CLEAR. Nothing clears up my blackheads and keeps the pimples away like Noxzema. LOVE IT.

I love MSFN. It was one of the first MAC products I bought. As a setting powder, it works beautifully and makes my face look beautifully flawless and so soft. I also occassionally use it as a foundation on its own when I'm lazy and want a really natural look. Has not broke me out at all. Will certainly purchase again!

I really like this product for people who have different skin types. It gives such a lovely glow with a nice, natural coverage. Unfortunately for me, it turns my face into an oil slick and tends to oxidize on top of giving me horrible cystic pimples. It really is a shame because I love the look upon application. Unfortunately, I will not be repurchasing because of how oily it makes me and the pimples.
While I like the coverage that this foundation provides, I don't like how thick and heavy it feels on me; no matter how little I put on, it feels like a mask and always seems tacky. I was happy that I found my perfect shade but it makes me break out horribly as it clogs pores something horrid. It smells like paint which is another big turn off. The big pro for me is the full coverage, however, the cons far out weigh the good so I will not be repurchasing.

For the price, I would expect this concealor to cover my blemishes better... but it doesn't. I've tried applying this multiple ways and it just doesn't work as well as the hype said it did. And that's why I bought it... all the hype. The only one I find to be decent is the apricot one for undereyes. Other than that, I think I'll stick to my NYX jar concealor.

If you want to minimze pores... this is great. And that's about all it does for me. It doesn't help with keeping my makeup on... it just slides right off in an hour or two. Due to the design of the packaging, you cannot get all of the product. For the steep price, I was expecting more. Will not be buying again.
One thing I cannot stand... people who rant about a product that doesn't work for them BECAUSE IT WASN'T FORMULATED FOR THEM. If you're dry, no, you WILL NOT like this foundation; it is suited for normal to oily skin. That being said, I actually like this foundation.It has decent coverage (similar to my MAC studio fix fluid) and stays on for quite some time. I've worn it for eight hours and only needed a small touch-up. Hasn't made me break out and doesn't transfer anymore than my other foundations. It can look a little too powdery at times but a little Fix+ fixes that for me. Overall, I like it and would buy it again.
