I bought this foundation after wasting a lot of money on high end products and reading so many good reviews. I have about 10 bottles of foundation and this is by far the worst. First off the bottle is terrible, its so hard to get the right amount of foundation out. I ended up wasting a lot and it was just messy. It is so so thick and dries incredibly fast. I only worked on small parts of my face at a time and found it set into a mask pretty much instantly and could not be blended. It settled into dry patches, fine lines and pores and looked awful on. The worst part was when I tried to wash it off straight after applying. It stayed glued to my face like a mask and would not budge. It took three separate washes to remove it from my skin!
I have been using this product for about a month now with a Beauty Blender sponge and have discovered it has both pros and cons. Let me start by saying that I have problem skin; enlarged pores, persistent breakouts, redness, acne scarring, patches of dry skin etc so as you can imagine finding a foundation is a complete nightmare. I have been using Mac SFF NC15 for the last 3 years but it is way too dark for my skin and I find it oxidises terribly and may contribute to my breakouts. After reading so many positive reviews I decided to purchase this foundation in the lightest shade. Pros: Really blendable, doesn't dry fast or streak Perfect colour match on my pale skin Dewy/Glowing finish Medium coverage Doesn't dry my skin out Cons Strong alcohol smell Not as long lasting as Mac SFF Doesn't cover blemishes or scarring Overall I think if my skin was better quality then this would be perfect, it blends so smoothly and looks really natural but its not quite right for my blemish-prone skin. If you have acne then this is definitely not for you.
