First off, it broke me out at the very beginning. But I was just assuring myself that it was because my skin was adjusting to it. It got a bit better afterwards, but it never really gave me the skin I really wanted. I re-purchased it once before because I kept trying to convince myself it would work. However, it didn't. - It smells awful - It doesn't foam up well at all or lather so you can't really tell if the product is on your skin and working - It always runs and finds its way to get in my eyes or on my lips - The packaging sucks. The pump always breaks off and I can't find a way to put it back on as it was before. - This also sucks to travel with. The pump makes it all leak out, making a mess and wasting the product. Don't buy this.

I bought this product because of its low price, and its amount of raves it brought in the YouTube community. However, I'm not fully sure where I stand with this product. At first it made my skin look cakey, but I found if I use the smallest amount it gives a just right finish. But after I finish it, that is if I can stand it for that long, I don't think I'll be purchasing it again. The packaging isn't the best. My sister has the same one and it cracked within the first week. Plus, it'd be more handy if it came with a mirror. Also, the colors they have aren't the best either. I feel like its very limited.
I purchased this product a few days before Christmas based on how much attention it brought up in the YouTube community. And after seeing tons of beauty gurus rave about it, I decided to give this foundation a try. So I picked up the combination/oily skin formula in 300 golden beige. And I can't even describe to you how great this matches my skin tone. Although it looks much darker in bottle, it feels like it practically blends into my skin. Also, I can't express enough how great the staying power on this foundation is. On the bottle it claims 24 hours and I can 100% agree with that claim. Although I haven't worn it a full 24 hours, at most probably 16-18 hours so I feel like it cold last even longer if I did wore it a full 24 hours. I feel like this product offers medium coverage, but it could give you full coverage if you mess around with it. As for a few problems I had with this foundation, (mostly in the beginning since I was just starting out) but here's some tips if you want to purchase it or if you had the same problems. 1) it's really pigmented, so a little goes an extremely long way with this 2) it can dry pretty fast so instead of dotting it all over your face, and then blending it in, do one section at a time plus I would also suggest not pouring it on the back of your hand because since a little goes a long way and more product pours out than you need, you'll end up with a lot left over, having to waste. So what I do is pour some in the cap, and apply. It's much easier and it doesn't waste because if there is product left it goes right back into the bottle when you screw it back on. 3) i find that this works better with your fingers, it may just be me but if you use a brush, a lot of product picks up on it and you'd having to use more, making it look cakey. 4) this product can get cakey depending on how much you use over the same area.
