I love this foundation. It’s medium coverage that’s buildable and is gorgeous on my skin. Very natural finish. I’ve tried Tarte, IT, Clinique, MAC, ELDW and countless drug store brands like L’Oréal True Matcch and Burt’s Bees and Rimmel. I keep coming back to this even though it’s 40 bucks a bottle. Also the color range is unparalleled. HG foundation for me.

Hi, more a question than a review. I was "prescribed" prescriptives foundation in Red Petal (All Skins Basic) when I was 16) (38 now) for my prom and used it religiously thereafter - i believe either the formulation or color were discontinued and throughout my 20s i continued to order either it or a similar color/formulation on ebay (and/or ordered similar colors/coverages from to …Read more

I have worn Prescriptives Virtual Matte foundation for at least 15 years and loved it, until my last 2 bottles. It has been reformulated so it now streaks, cakes, and has lost the dewy look it once had. I am at the end of a bottle and looking for a new brand, this time I will buy one that is totally organic and 100% chemical free. I don't know why companies think they can reformulate their …Read more

I have sworn by Prescriptives Virtual Skin for nearly 15 years. I always received compliments on my skin; even though Virtual Skin was covering up any flaws on my skin, it still looked so natural and not like I was wearing makeup. However, when they reformulated a few years ago, the product is nothing like it used to be. It streaks, doesn't blend well, doesn't set well and doesn't …Read more

I have fair skin (I'm between shades 10 and 12 in Marc Jacobs foundation concentrate). I used to buy Prescriptives when they still had counters at the Mall and loved their foundation. I stumbled across Prescriptives online in my search for a new foundation and ordered this in the lightest warm shade.
This foundation was a strange color on me. It was far too dark and didn't look …

The first thing I want to say is that while this is not available in stores, you can still purchase it online. Shipping is free as are returns. Sales or gwp are frequent.

I have been using foundation since I was a young teen which was many years ago. For a long time I used Estee Lauder demi matte which was wonderful though I did need to powder my nose mid day with it. (I am wearing …

I wonder if they have changed the formula for the better. This used to be my favorite foundation being it withstood my cardio and strength training sessions, and resisted humidity. The color match was awesome too! It was medium coverage on me, and left me flawless.But they "improved" the formula. After that, it dissolved in white streaks when I sweat. I couldn't even reserve it for …Read more

I'd previously used this foundation in my teens and early 20s and LOVED it. That was until I discovered CHANEL's Teint Fluide Universel (in shade "Clair") and it became my HG foundation. Sadly, Teint Fluide Universel has since been discontinued and I haven't (as yet) found anything that comes close.
When I used this foundation previously, I had been color matched at …

Similar to most reviewers reviewing this product, I am very loyal to the Prescriptive brand and was gutted when they shut up shop. Now I pay almost $100 per bottle for a US company to buy it and ship it to Australia but I am still paying - yes, Estee Lauder if you are reading this, open up your international shipping!!

Love this foundation. I think it's one of the best covering foundations, without looking cakey or un-natural. It's always my go-to foundation for attending parties or weddings! it doesn't burn my skin at all like the Traceless did (must have a lot of fragrance or something in there)...however you can get some flakies so a good moisturizer underneath is a must! I would give this …Read more
