This is my favourite and absolute must-have foundation all year round! I use the lightest shade because I'm as pale as a snowflake and it doesn't make me look cakey or orange. It is a medium/full coverage foundation that feels lightweight and looks pretty natural. It tones down my redness and camouflages breakouts. Sometimes it can make my skin a little dry around my mouth and chin, but that's easily fixed by putting on a little extra moisturiser at night. I highly recommend this product to people who have acne prone/oily skin. :)
I really wish I could give this review a better wrap! It looked absolutely amazing on my skin! I have really red skin, heaps of acne scarring and combination/acne prone skin. Horrible, right? Well, this foundation covered everything beautifully, and with the wide range of colours my pale skin didn't look cakey and orange. I got a little oily during the day, but thats normal for me. BUT..it made me break out like craazzy! After the first 3 weeks of use, my skin looked bumpy and I got regular breakouts after I stopped using it. I was shattered. If you have normal skin (unlike me) this would be perfect for you. I'm actually going to buy this again for my dance concert next week because nothing covers me better (except clinique's anti-blemish foundation, which is AMAZING but expensive). :)

I love this moisturiser!! Having oily skin can sometimes be a problem, but if I put some of this on my skin, it makes my skin smooth, excess oil is practically gone and it is perfect for putting under makeup. I would definitely buy this again.

I first started using this product about this time last year, and I am divided by the pros and cons. It has a decent coverage for my acne-prone/red skin, but it makes my skin look excessively shinier than it already is. On some days, especially in warmer weather, after about 3 hours it wears off a little, BUT, it doesn't make my skin break-out and I never look orange, which is a plus because my skin is rather pale. It's really easy to apply and blends really well across my face, and the coverage is buildable so you can have it as sheer or as thick as you want. I would recommend this product to people who want a sheer/medium coverage and have a normal skin tone.
