I used Countess Isserlyn makeup when I was barely nineteen, which was ridiculous at that age, but I loved it anyway. Now at the tender age of sixty-six, I have reacquainted myself with this heavenly foundation. The numbering system has changed since I first used it and believe it has been this 'newer' system for well over twenty years. I have a light complexion with yellow undertones …Read more

I have been using Countess Iserlyn liquid 71 1/2 for 46 years and it is but far the best foundation ever made. The problem is, I can't find it anywhere. Ever time I find a website that sells it, thee is a message that says, "Out of stock". This has been going on for months and months. Probably close to a year. I find it hard to believe that it would be out of stock for that …Read more

I use 90 1/2 this is by far the best foundation I have ever used!

Pros:
Coverage- Great! This make up covers very well, and feels light on your skin. :)

Long Lasting- Yes! I work full time, and I don't ever have to touch it up. This is the first foundation I've found that lasts like this, and I worked at Macy's in the cosmetics …

The best foundation on the market. Yes it is a suspension of pigment and oil. But for some reason it goes on smoothly, covers wrinkles and when blended to a fine finish makes me look 20 years younger (60+). I use color 95 1/2 which is a medium beige with pink undertones.

Ok, remember this is serious makeup. Vivien Leigh wore it in Gone With The Wind. You cannot use this like you would …

I've tried a variety of foundations through the years, and Countess Isserlyn is one of the best. My skin always looks flawless and glowing, which isn't easy at my age. Yes, a little goes a long way, and yes, you have to smooth it out to make sure it doesn't look mask-like, but it's worth the effort. I've found it seems to go on best with a makeup brush and a light …Read more

I found a most wonderful and unique way to use this product. I stirred well, put a dry sponge in a tight compact, and poured just enough to dampen the entire makeup sponge-- I use a SPF tinted moisturizer first (there is no SPF in the Countess Isserlyn), then I just dab my fingers on the sponge a couple of times and put it where I need it--mainly around my nose and chin. Beautiful and very …Read more

My favorite make up is DHC liquid but this is a close 2nd. However this is very expensive and oily. But is covers wonderfully. You must blot your face afterward or you'll get make up everywhere. However if you use powder, that might be the answer, I just don't like powder of any kind on my face. Lovely colors. This is best for a night out.

You do not have an age category for Old Crows, but I have been in love with this product for 40 years. I do not deserve even the face I have after decades of smoking, crazy diet and sun abuse. Two chemical peels and an occasional injectable helped, but this make-up is responsible for my skin looking the best it can at age 77.

Putting the tightly capped container in a basin of …

i CANNOT BELIEVE HOW MUCH I LOVE THIS STUFF. AS I GET OLDER I NEED THE NATURL look.BOTH FORMULAS. ONE FOR SUMMER--MATT. AND THEN THE MOISTURIZING ONE FOR WINTER. LOOKS SO NATURAL!!! I CAN ADJUST THE COVERAGE BY HOW MUCH PIGMENT I PICK UP FROM THE BOTTOM WITH A TOOL.( I USE A CROCETT NEEDLE.) AND HOW MUCH I SHAKE IT.
I RECOGNIZED THAT SEVERAL BRANDS COPIED THIS TRIED AND TRUE FORMULA …

You get sick of stirring it. I wanted to give this a really good blending, so I put the bottle in a ziplock bag and shoved it inside the whipping attachment of my Kitchenaid mixer, turned on low. I turned it off and rotated the bag a few times. The pigment mixed completely.

Hey--and they say only MAN knows how to use tools.

As for the makeup, I don't wear it every day …
