Absolutely love this foundation. It works as a spot concealer and foundation. It’s very thick and concentrated so a little goes a very long way if you want something natural looking (medium-full coverage). Great color range for dark skinned black women. I think the price point is good due to the fact that this foundation will last you a long time due to needing very little because it’s so …Read more

I have bought several shades, lighter ones (Buttercup, Nude) and darker ones (Tan, Bamboo). The shades are great - huge selection however they tend to oxydize a bit. i also mix shades when I am changing tone (spring-summer ) to get the right shade!
This foundation covers pretty much everything without feeling heavy. You really don't need a full pump, half is plenty. For that reason …

This is an amazing foundation. Make sure you get it in the exact colour not lighter as does oxidize. I have dark marks from acne so I need to use one pump on each side of my face and its buildable without looking cakey at all. It left my skin poreless, I bought Sienna which I thought was too dark but actually suited me perfectly especially with a highlight or lighter concealer under my eyes. It …Read more

The packaging of this product is beautiful. I enjoy the sleek bottle and the pump. My holy grail foundation is EL DW, but I am looking for more full coverage foundation. This is a thick creme foundation, but easily blend out and feels lightweight on the skin, but this is not full coverage. Compared to EL DW it is more coverage, but my higher pigmented areas of my cheeks still poked …Read more

I have very dry skin with a neutral/light olive undertone, this foundation is the best color match that I have ever found. I use the shade driftwood and mix it with olive.
I did struggle with this foundation caking until I started using glycerin/water as my primer. My makeup has never looked so good. I throw on some Mac sweet as cocoa blush, it literally makes my face glow (in a good way).

I wanted to love this foundation- I tried to make it work so many times. Why? Because the shade Shell is the only 100% perfect match I have ever encountered, and I’ve been into makeup for 10 years and tested dozens of different foundations.

My skin: normal/combination. No major skin problems other than SFs on my nose. I have a few fine lines on my forehead and some foundations …

I bought this foundation and returned it. This foundation dried up so blotchy it looked like mud on my skin. It also oxidized like 3 shades darker. I tried setting it with a translucent powder and it make the foundation look even worse. This foundation made my skin look so old and dry. It also left a bunch of little bumps on my skin and I NEVER break out. Would not recommend this at all.

This is SO full coverage but somehow looks natural as well. I thought this would be too thick and creamy for my liking my I’m amazed! Blends nicely and covers everything that I need covered with just one layer. If I’m really having problematic skin then that I’ll dab a little more on but one layer will even out your skin tone incredibly. It wears well despite my oily skin. I wish this was more of …Read more

I've been wearing this off and on for years in Bamboo. No matter how many brands I stray to, I always come back to this.

As I've gotten older and perfected my skincare routine, I've gone from oily to normal, but I still have acne scarring, large pores, and texture from my teenage years. This foundation covers pretty much everything without feeling heavy, but I'm …

In Becca shade descriptions, "neutral" seems to mean "yellow-leaning olive." I'm warm olive-toned NC15 and the shade shell is a good match. I've got rosacea, as well as some broken capillaries and acne scarring. I've found that this will not apply well if you have too many layers of skin-care product and primer on your skin. When I skipped serum and …Read more
