I cannot believe my eyes when I saw the low rating on MUA! So I HAD to write a review because I personally LOVED it and so did my bestfriend.
So first of all I have read most posts complaining about the color. Don't go with Light to Natural if you are between NC10 and NC25. Ivory to Light is the way to go. And no it will not make ur face ghost pale. I am NC15-20 and this matches me perfectly!
Second, most posts complain about the herbal smell. It is lavender essential oil first of all and guys, this product is preservatives free, alcohol free, low toxicity and fragrance free. I suppose most foundation don't smell so good with all the chemicals inside so most companies add tons of fragrance into it that is horrible for your skin. Using essential oil to fragrance the product is the natural way to go so I personally would prefer having less toxic product for the essential oil smell than fragrance filled products smelling like perfume or plastic. The lavender smell doesn't linger anyways!
-not expensive and easy to get (in drugstores)
-organic, low toxicity, non-comedogenic
-perfect color match
-feels like a tinted moisturizer, covers like a foundation !!!!
(doesn't cake at all and feels very light and natural though it did cover my 50% of my acne redness like a light coverage foundation such as Almay's)
-doesn't break me out
-doesn't dry sticky or cakey
-great for days when u don't feel like putting foundation on or just using it as a base for mineral foundation/powder since u only need to use concealer over it bcuz it has a nice coverage
-it doesn't smell the best but doesn't linger and is a natural fragrance (like I explained above)
-the consistency is liquid-y so when u open it, u don't have to squeeze for the product to come out, just hang it over ur palm and it will leak out. make sure it is closed well when u take it on the go with u
Hope this helped! This TM isn't bad at all. I did check the ingredient list one by one and NONE was supposed to be pore-clogging or irritating. So u are not supposed to break out from it unless u sleep in it. As a matter of fact, I slept with only this stuff on one week ago and I woke up with no zit and until now, I only had one pimple and not sure if it was from this. I used to be lazy at times and sleep in my foundation and it totally ruins my face for the next two weeks or so. This proves it is very natural and low harm for your skin. It is sincerely the best TM i have tried in term of coverage and ingredient all together! Definitely better than Laura Mercier in coverage and prices and ingredients right?
Give it a try!
