I actually use this for my face mostly because I don't have any particular bodily concerns that need cover-up (possibly a bikini beach day but that's pretty rare.) I have got to say that this as a foundation is pretty damn superb. I don't really love the packaging (glass rubes with a pump are A+, this is a plastic tube, not my favorite.) Aside from that, the actual performance of the foundation blows any other I've tried out of the water. This foundation is INCREDIBLY long lasting. It provides a hydrated (I wouldn't quite call it "dewy") and natural finish that can be powered down if you wanted it matte. This without a primer or blotting or even powdering lasts ALL day. It doesn't settle into my lines or go into my cheek pores (a frequent foundation killer for me) and it actually manages to cover very well. The formula is very waterproof too. In addition to all that I have said, the standard foundation amount is normally 1 fl.oz, this tube contains 3.4 fl.oz; and incredible amount of foundation. This foundation cost me $36.54 at Ulta, however if you divided that by 3.4 (the amount) so you can actually compare the amount you're getting for the price, that equates to roughly $10.70. That was with state tax and at Ulta. That is cheaper than most drugstore foundations these days in terms of price per amount given. Factoring this all in, the foundation is something I would ABSOLUTELY repurchase and continue to. This foundation is liquid gold to me, I highly recommend it.

This works quite well for me. I use it to keep concealer from shifting off of any blemishes or imperfections. I also use it on the odd occasion that I wear make up as it helps keep it in place and mattify my skin. It doesn't completely work but it's better than not using anything to set it, and lasts about 8-10 hours on me, depending on how hot/humid it is on a given day. I also use a soft kabuki brush to dust this across my t-zone when I start to get oily by late afternoon. The only problem is the color selection isn't all that great - I seem to fall somewhere between Beige and Warm Saffron, yet not quite either (and yes i've tried to blend the two, bad move!). Would love it if they could introduce some more shades, 'original' makes me look ghastly even though it's supposed to be translucent, and I would only suggest to those with very pale or neutral skin tones. I really wish a whole load of the powder didn't fall out each time I unscrew the lid, but I'm guessing the packaging is not gonna change anytime soon as it hasn't so far, in all the many years I've been using it.

Pros: This makeup is great if you are trying to hide large pores, redness & lighter sun spots. Cons First of all it is very hard to apply this makeup because of how thick it is. It is not a liquid so you have to scoop it out with a little tool that they provide. It also doesn't really set. It will come off on your phone, clothes etc. Looks greasy after applying so a setting powder is definitely a must. It will settle in fine lines & accentuate crepe skin. It is not long lasting, I would say it stays on for about 4 to 5 hours & then will start to break down in my T zone area which I have very dry skin so can't even imagine if you had normal to oily skin. Actually the only time it really looks good is after having it on for about half the day & then you reapply another coat. I wear makeup daily & this lasts about 6 months.

I’ve used a lot of different primers with varying results. As my skin ages, my usual primers seem way too drying. I use dermablend makeup , so figured I would give this one a shot. First off - this is hard to use. You really have to practice. The first time I used it, I truly thought it may just be another crappy primer. It’s tacky beyond belief. Don’t do your hair first ! It’s that sticky. It is a really weird thick gel texture. Pump bottle, and you don’t need much. I applied it and then put on foundation. My foundation was hard to spread. The primer gripped it My usual makeup brush wasn’t cutting it, but a beauty blender worked. My makeup stayed tacky so I dusted a light translucent powder over it. I was not optimistic. It looked good but my face felt sort of tight Luckily that tightness didn’t translate into my fine lines showing !I did my makeup at 2 and went to a country concert until midnight on a scorching hot day. Let’s just say Yes I sweated thru the night. When I got back to the car and looked at my face, I was shocked. Really shocked. My makeup was in place totally. I still looked fresh ! That has NEVER happened before. I’m hooked. It’s tough to use but so worth it. It really works.

So I was really excited for this because it finally comes in my shade... 0. Light enough, seems to have lots of pigment and glides smoothly and felt nice on my hand. On my face however a different story happened. I thought it looked perfect on my face immediately after applying, but come an hour, it starts to weirdly separate right at my chin/jaw area in the most disgusting way ever looked like I had a skin disease. Tiny tiny millions of little circles broken apart all over. I was really embarassed, and thought it must of been my primer, or skin care. So I eliminated them all one by one. Same thing kept happening, then someone from the company told me I had to use it WITHOUT a primer and make sure to use the dermablend setting powder on top. So I did, and the problem still kept happening! So bad. I would rather much have the makeup wear off my chin and dissapear normally, then have it break apart into so many disgusting dots. Even a 5$ foundation can outperform that. I have no idea why that happened, nor have had that happen with any other foundation in my life. Strangely, the problem wouldn't happen if I used it in my air brush machine to apply to my face. But I usually don't have time to airbrush my face so.... yeah I am stuck with two of these bottles of unusable foundation.
