My skin background : sensitive, oily, have lots of acne,cystic pimples, pustules and comedones on my face :(Pros:- coverage medium buildable but not cakey at all (mind you I have flakies from acne cream)- does not break me out, My skin is teribbly acne prone, every compact powder/foundation I tried break me out. But this one doesnt.- great natural finish, I have discoloration and many2 acne marks/scars and this foundie covers them perfectly but doesnt give that 'fake powdery look'. Just blends into skin perfectly looking naturalCons :- It make my face more oily than usual- completely dissapear within less than an hour and leave me looking tired and dishevelled. what's up with that??Overall, will not buy again for the 2 cons above. What' s the point of using powder foundie if it dissapears within an hour anyway...but still putting 3 lippies because of the pros listed above...

I have to say that I am totally in love with this powder and it is my current HG Powder Foundation. I used to be a hardcore Mac Junkie and I have now been using this Product for 4 years already and have not gone back to MAC for Powder or Foundation. It provides full coverage. It feels silky smooth, it has SPF 10. I highly reccomend this product to everyone. For reference I am an NC35-37 in MAC and use the color Soleil on face and the color Vanilla to set my concealer. I do wish they had a better packaging as the pan does not stay on since it only has a sticky piece behind it to stick to the case, once that glue runs out, the pan starts comming off the case when you open it. It is the only thing I can ask for to be changed but it is not a big deal to me as the product itself is great for me.

Funny that nobody has written anything about this amazing foundation yet.I ordered it out of the blue because I was told all Artistry products are amazing and comparatively low priced. Since I have only had wonderful experiences with the face & body care products I now bought this make-up in shade "porcelain" and kept my fingers crossed that it is light enough for me.Prior I used Clinique Clarifying Cream in shade 01 and Bobbi Brown's Oilfree Foundation in shade "porcelain" and these two were the only ones light enough for my milky white skin.So yesterday I received my package and voilą: it fits my skin tone perfectly!! I was relieved. So this morning I applied it and what can I say: I'm totally in love with this product. It covers perfectly, but is still fine enough so that you can build it up slowly. It's definitely a product for both "good skin days" and "bad skin days" (given you have a good concealer, of course). The skin feels silky and smooth, my pores become almost invisible and all in all my skin looks perfectly flawless.However, what I like most about this make-up is the glow it's adding to my complexion. People with as white skin as I have, often look "deathly pale", as if they're sick. So having a skin with a lovely sheen and glow to it, can do wonders for still looking pale but not sick. My skin radiates, looks amazing and perfectly even. Just like a porcelain doll :)Now for the downsides: You have to buy a separate make-up box the first time around, because the make-up itself is only available as a refill. It does not come with a sponge. Not even the package it gets delivered in, is suitable for storing. The box is golden unfortunately, a colour I'm not exactly fond of. It's made of rather light plastic and doesn't have that "expensive/heavy" feeling to it, if you know what I mean. But it's okay. The refill is easy to set in and holds thanks to a magnet, quite similar to the blush/eyeshadow box Artistry also has. The make-up box contains a sponge which seems slightly "fluffy". But it's very good for applying this make-up, it worked wonderfully.What might be another downside: The available range of shades is rather small. I guess you have to try and be lucky to find your perfect shade.But yeah, I was lucky so I'll definitely, definitely buy again! :)Edit: Will NOT ever buy again. I wonder if I fell on my head when liking and reviewing this product. Either way, I have to add: the foundation only remains matte for about one, maybe two hours and then it makes one shine like an oil tree. Never has a foundation given me such an unwanted oily look. It won't even work with masses of finishing powder on top. I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but this went into my closet and I will probably try to get rid of it elsewhere. Boo! :(
