Smells like alcohol, stings my skin and gives me rashes on my forehead. Shade 1N1 matches my pale neutral skin tone initially but after a few hours I notice a pink tone all over. This could be due to oxidation but more likely my skin is reacting to some known irritants in the formula. Disappointing as I liked the satiny, dewy finish. But cons outweigh the pros for me.

I'm not a fan - in fact I am quite disappointed with this foundation. The person at the make up counter told me it was a med-full coverage, while I am finding it quite sheer - not much more than my BB cream, to be honest. The color is a good match, but it still seems to make my skin look a bit dull, rather than better-than-usual. Lastly, my very dry skin feels a bit oily and moist by the end …Read more

I bought this Perfectionist make-up by Estee Lauder after the sales assistant told me how good it is. My experience with this is a most unusual feeling on the skin, you can feel it there, even though the coverage is medium and not visible because it blends well. You feel like you are wearing some kind of something stuck there holding on to your face, this make-up feels to be putting it's …Read more

This settles in lines really bad. Which is weird for a product aimed at reducing lines and smoothing skin. Maybe if you powder like crazy but then what's the point bc then you lose the satin finish. ELDW looks invisible next to this. This just looks very makeupy and obvious.

This is quite nice..Makes my skin feel like a baby's bottom, even on days I don't use any moisturizer. Not great for full coverage, looks more sheer. I would classify this as light to moderate coverage. I don't detect a scent. Nice pump applicator. I got the shade "2W1 Dawn" and it seems perfect for my NC20 skin. This applies like a dream and blends in almost …Read more

I am a big fan of double wears full coverage and Estee Lauder's color selection. I also use a retinol product that sometimes dries my skin out and makes double wear look extremely cakey and fake. Enter Perfectionist.... Same true colors, a little more moisture and medium coverage. Feels amazing on irritatation, stays put and doesn't oxidize and doesn't aggravate acne prone …Read more

I have been wearing Perfectionist for at least three years and I love it. I see complaints on here about it pooling up, caking or having sparkles. I have no clue what any of those references are to. No sparkles, and it may be that your skin type is not compatible with this? I do think foundation is a very personalized product so it’s believable we can have different experiences. For me …Read more

Perfectionist make-up is not working for me! I had high expectations for this product but it's not making me feel or look any better, to the contrary, it makes me look old. I examined my face with a highly magnified mirror before make-up and after.
1. BEFORE this make-up:
after cleansing and moisture, my pores were a bit visible, but I recognized myself to the age I am, no …

For me it does not work, it might have caused me to break out more but my big no no for me is the look on my skin, looks not smooth, highlights my dry spots, tad orange but looks better if I use a blender sponge but requires more works than just finger application. sunscreen is nice, photographs well. Just wished looked as good in person on skin.

I’ve been using this foundation for about 2-3 years (2C3) and I hope it never is discontinued! It’s medium coverage, easy to blend, SPF 25, and in a pump.

One reviewer stated that she saw glitter/sparkles. I’ve never seen that or else it doesn’t show up on my skin. I get a dewy glow from it. Yes, a dewy glow at 50 years of age! It lasts 6 hours+. No weird smell or anything, either - …
