Love, love, love! I don't understand the so-so reviews. This stuff is WAY better than any of their other BE foundations. Always hated the original BE. Never stayed on, too messy and never enough coverage. Those of you saying it is too chalky, you are using too much! I was color matched at a BE store and shown the proper way to apply it. You DON"T apply it like the original! I use just a couple of layers for full coverage and you really have to buff this in for it to settle in your skin. Love it!

LOVE this stuff! I was looking for something that I could wear to the gym, beach, pool etc....I don't have perfect skin and I know some of you think some of us are crazy for not going totally make-up free during these times. That is fine if you feel confident without make-up but some of us don't. I have uneven skin tone, breakouts (even in my 40's). I did not want a full make-up look and I use this in #5 in all the right spots and I look like I have even looking skin with out the make-up look. I just brush a very little amount over my face with a foundation brush. I sweat or get wet and it stays!! I add alittle waterproof mascara, bronzer, light powder and go. The best thing I have found!!!
Very pleased with this product!! I would never have tried it if it were not for MUA! It feels very light on my skin and yet covers well! I usually wear DW but was looking for something that would feel lighter for summer but cover and I found it. So far no breakouts and I only have to do a light touch-up after several hours. This will also be great for travel! I normally wear one of the lightest shades but they were too light and classic beige seems to be a great match!
I love, love, love this!! I don't understand the so-so reviews. I have no flaking or smudges! It is not waterproof so don't go swimming in it! It is great and I have already bought it again!
I don't understand all the great reviews on this product!!! It did go on great and looked good for a couple of hours. If I am going to pay over $40 for a product that says it will stay on for "24 hours" then I atleast expect it to stay for the whole day. Melted off my face after a few hours. I set it with powder and still nothing. Glad I only had a sample because I won't be buying!
Great everyday mascara! Love the rubber brush. No clumping or flaking during the day. Not really waterproof but when I went swimming with it on, it stayed pretty good and I didn't have raccoon eyes.
I have really tried to love this foundation for the past week and I just can't! I love it when I first put it on. Great color and texture and looks beautiful and natural on my skin. Now the thing that kills it for me. No staying power. After about 3 hrs, it has just faded away and it looks like I have no make-up on. I was so hoping this would be the Clinique foundation that I would love because I have never found a foundation they have that works for me. So much of Clinique does work for me (skin care, blush, eye shadow etc.) I will just stick with my Estee Lauder DW Light because it DOES have staying power. Maybe if your skin was not oily the Even Better would be good for you.
Over all this is a pretty good drugstore foundation. I love the color match for my skin and it goes on easy. I would say it is a light to medium coverage which is great for summer. I don't love the staying power. It says 18 hours but it is more like 5 or 6 only if I am not sweating outside. It melts off in the heat. I wish is stayed better because I would buy it again.
Well, well, well, I am very shocked that I like this powder foundation. Matte is much better than the original!! I use the fair and it provides a medium coverage. I don't want a heavy make-up look most days in the summer and this is perfect. Give this one a try!
Not a great powder foundation. I got a sample of this in the fair and it was too dark. I am not overly fair but it still didn't look good. I kinda had a gray cast to my face. Not pretty. I will stick with my new BE matte.
Great product!!! It really has reduced my breakouts and it is mild to use. Like all BP products it can dry out your skin but I make sure I moisturize well when I use it.
I wore this for a couple of days and really liked it. The coverage was medium and the application was easy. Stayed on all day. But....I then started to get many white heads all over my face. I wish I could wear drugstore foundation but I have always broken out with them. Nice product but not for me.

I liked the foundation when I first put it on...after a few hours my face was oily looking. I only paid $7 so that was good. I won't be buying it or using it anymore.

Wow Wow Wow! I really love this foundation!! I have loved the Virtual Skin but it did not have staying power. This does and the coverage is beautiful! Not too light and not too heavy. Feels like I have nothing on. I like medium coverage and this is perfect. I like this better than Estee L. DW light.

I am on my second one of these and I love it. I use the Rose Baroque for my fair skin and blonde hair. The color is a great sutle color and gives you a pretty glow. I tried the other colors and they didn't work for my skin. This one is great!! It is not cheap but my first one lasted for over a year.
