This did a terrible job of covering my dark circles. It goes on very easily and blends in easily but doesn't cover dark circles well enough and really grabs on to any dryness which leaves it cakey looking. I will stick to my Mac pro long wear concealer and return this to Target.
I have grown to love this foundation the more I use it. I am an NC25 and have very neutral skin and I find this suits my coloring because it leaves a healthy looking color. I find that it is indeed long wearing, it has excellent coverage and has a great finish. It is not too matte or too dewy, just right. Love it. The best way to apply is with a foundation paddle type brush.
This is an amazing concealer because it does not emphasize fine lines and it does a great job of covering dark circles. You do not have to set this with powder and it will not budge. My only complaint is the asinine pump that dispenses too much product. I think the packaging person should be fired for developing such a horrible pump.

I am 47 and find that this makes my normal to dry skin look ashy, dry and cakey. I have been using a very small amount to set my foundation and do not like the result. This leaves you looking like the Sahara desert so it is probably good for people with oily skin. I would not repurchase. I have increased my rating on this to a five because when I apply with a big powder puff that I purchased at the drugstore it went on beautifully. This product comes with a puff that does a horrific job of depositing the powder on the face. When I used my own puff and used a very small amount of the product, it really did a nice job of filling pores without looking caked on or ashy. The secret seems to be to not use the applicator it comes with and to use a small amount of product.
I used clairol perfect 10 in light chocolate brown 6WN and the color was gorgeous but it really dried my hair out. I normally use clairol nice and easy in the 30 minute dye and have never had issues with dryness. The Perfect 10 on the other hand left my hair feeling damaged. I will never again do a 10 minute dye. This is unfortunate because the color was so beautiful and very natural, it is my exact hair color without the greys!

I am in disbelief that I finally found a foundation I like. I am 46 and my skin used to be oily but has definitely become dryer with age and am dealing with wrinkles. My old foundaton are now too drying, even revlon colorstay for dry skin was too drying, this foundation is perfect for mature skin. I LOVE IT. It gives my skin hydration and a dewy look without being too oily. I am surprised that this is recommended for oily skin because I think in my younger days I would have found this too oily. It has excellent coverage, I would say equivalent with the colorstay. For you maturing ladies who can't find a good foundation give this a try.

I am 46 years old and have trouble with most foundations settling into the creases around my cheek area. This does not do that. I makes my skin look smooth around the wrinkled areas. I first put on a moisturizer, then a primer, then this foundation and it looks amazing.
