My skin has gotten increasingly dry over the past few years and I was on the hunt for a new foundation. This one was recommend to me by an Ulta salesperson, who I’m not convinced didn’t only do so because of “hydrating” in the title of this foundation. But I was game to try. The good part: with a large shade range I was able to match one perfectly, and I have not found any problems with oxidation. A good amount of coverage, not too heavy, not too sheer. The bad part: I am seriously scratching my head as to how this stuff is “hydrating.” My skin has never looked so dry and chalky as it does when I have put this stuff on! Lines, pores, everything stands out tenfold with this foundation. Even with a good moisturizer and primer, I just could not get this stuff to look good on my face, and it aged me about 10 years. At first I assumed it was because of the ongoing dryness to my skin, and stepped up my moisturizing. But after several catches in the mirror that made me want to cry, I switched to another foundation and all the chalkiness and lines have gone away. The old lady in the mirror is gone! This may be hydrating for someone with more normal to oily skin, but it definitely doesn’t seem to be for those of with normal to dry or dry skin. Beware!
