I am unbelievably pale, and what's worse, is that I have no yellow tones in my skin. So finding a foundation light enough has been a serious struggle. I bought the palest shade in 'moonlight'. It's still too dark for me :/ the only way I have been able to wear it is by mixing it with manic panic pure white foundation. I'm not incredibly goth! So I'm definitely not deliberately trying to look paler then I am. This product was surprisingly dark for something labelled as a 'gothic foundation brand'. The texture isn't so band, as long as I put primer underneath (which I always do regardless) and use my beauty blender sponge. I have a feeling it wouldn't work so well on anything other then normal skin as well.

I can't lie - this was the first foundation I ever used and that was something I recalled one day in a swedish "alternative" fashion store which sold a lot of Manic Panic products. I did end up buying this on the way out for old times sake. Yet when I tried it on, I was shocked. This was truly a terrible product I would never recommend to any friends or family - you can honestly get so many other better foundations. I can't understand how ever liked this product. It does nothing for your skin to help with texture or to control excess sebum or add any moisture.
I can't even see how this foundation would be ideal for any skin type altough this foundation might work great for some people. I mean, I swore by this foundation once.
I also still love manic panic for their hair colors aswell as their cool owners yet I just can't ignore the fact that I loathe myself for repurchasing this product.
This foundation and it's many shades are also way darker than I expected. It does also not have the best ingredients with parabens, acne triggers and irritants.
Here is a basic analysis of the ingredients of this foundation in case; http://www.cosdna.com/eng/cosmetic_eb4d267065.html

Not as pale as I'd expected. I got "Moonlight" the lightest of the three shades and it's close to being a match for my fair skin, but could be a shade lighter.

I like the feel of it on my skin, and it wears fairly well if I use a primer underneath.

I'd probably buy it again, but have found a better colour match in a different product at the moment, so will see how that goes over the longer term before coming back to this one again. It's probably going to be my 'summer' foundation, rather than my pasty white winter one. :)

I wasn't able to find the ingredients for this on the Tish and Snooky website and the product description was minimal. I ordered from them (despite the lack of information) and it came promptly. It's advertised as cruelty free and not tested on animals.
It's always sketchy to choose a color online, but this product isn't in many stores to try out. I ordered the color Starlight...not wanting something too light. It ended up being about three shades too dark for me and very pinky orange (for ref: I'm about NC20).
I can't comment on the performance of the foundation since the color was so far off, I didn't bother trying to make it work.
The main reason this is not a keeper for me is the ingredients. I am trying to avoid parabens and other questionable chemicals in my products. I wanted to at least post the ingredients for others who may also be looking:

I ordered the "Moonlight" shade, and to my dismay, it was way too dark for me :/ Almost 2 or 3 shades too dark for my pale skin. Definitely not the color of a goth, so I'm not sure why they call it goth foundation. I will be using this for the Summer since I will surely get at least a little darker. I love the Moonlight pressed powder though! I will definitely be rebuying that. Foundation wise, i'll stick to my Loreal True Match in Porcelain. It works well anyway, besides making my face slightly oily after awhile.

I've been trying to find a new cruelty free foundation and I trust the manic panic brand to not break me out since the white vamp foundation doesn't but unfortunately the lightest shade of the three is too dark but I guess that's where the white foundation comes into play? I'll try mixing them together to lighten it until I run out.

The coverage is medium but buildable. Feels a little heavy though. If they fix the shade problem I would repurchase.

I got this foundation in moonlight. It's just plain ok. It evens out your skin tone. I used it once without moisturizer under which I usually wear and it didn't blend as well. It doesn't cover up that good, I still need concealer.

I bought this from Amazon.com and planned to replace my Revlon CS with it. I also ordered the Vampyre's Veil pressed powder. I was kinda underwhelmed with both. I had such high hopes, too! I like a very opaque. Made up look when it comes to my foundation/powder. First of all, it wasn't as fair as I had hoped for. It was definitely not full coverage at all. I had to apply several layers and then the powder over the top and even then it just did not compare to the Colorstay in terms of color, opacity, wear time, etc. I do however like the little spatula thing inside that you can dip into the bottle to spread the product onto the back of your hand and then apply it with your foundation brush (or whatever you use). Colorstay is still my HG. I used half of this on my face the other day and half CS and DH said the CS was a better match and overall a better look. Maybe I can use this in the summertime since it is a little darm for me. And I hate ordering stuff online for this reason alone-you never know what you're gonna get. A risk you have to take once in awhile I supppse!
