This foundation looks ridiculously beautiful with HD Photography & Video.
I used this for my professional headshots with 4k photography on different locations (inside/outside) & here are the results:

- Reflected natural light the absolute right amount, VERY natural.
- Reflected bright artificial light with no flashback, just natural luminosity
- Gave a 2nd skin effect, it was like I WAS WEARING NOTHING AT ALL
- Didn't cling on to my dry areas
- By the end of 8 hours there was minimal creasing & my oils WEREN'T coming through!

**Application with sponge: this blends beautifully on the skin with the sponge, you can literally go from light to almost full coverage without causing cake face! And I don't have perfect skin (I suffer from jawline hormonal acne) So i did layer it!

**Product compatibility: I used a non-silicone hydrating primer & set this foundation with my Laura Mercier Translucent Loose powder (it has no silica too! yay), all my other products blended in smoothly, without clinging to any spots.

Absolutely FANTASTIC foundation. I would definitely repurchase just for the fact it looks 15/10 on HD cameras & videos. Holy grail status! My photographer loved it too! haha.

This foundation doesn't break me out and that in itself makes it a great product for me. Coverage is buildable. No perceptible scent. The finish can be slightly matte/slightly dewy depending on how you apply it (I apply it with a dry sponge and then spray avene thermal water on as a kind of finishing spray. The result is a slightly dewy finish).

The pump is convenient but means that you won't get all the foundation out of it, so that's a con.

There isn't an exact shade that matches me as far as I can tell. I mix two shades (I think I have a neutral undertone), one with a red undertone and one that is a yellow undertone.

I have purchased this again and again and will continue to in the future.

Unfortunately I could not get on with this foundation. I tried it both with and without primer and with and without MAC Strobe Cream and it made little to no difference - this foundation just did not look nice on my skin. I have normal-combination skin and this foundation seemed to cling to dry areas that I didn’t even know I had! It looked patchy and uneven and even pilled some, even with just one layer. It seemed to flake off my face throughout the day, and separated on the more oily areas. On areas where it didn’t flake or seperate, it faded. The pros are the the demi-matte finish is nice and the shade didn’t oxidise, but that is it. This foundation is not worth the price point and I will definitely not recommend or repurchase this product.

I love the new formula of this foundation than the old one. The texture is like gel makes it very easy to blend with fingers, unlike the old one which is creamier so hard to blend and tends to flake off, the staying power also very impressive all day, plus this foundation dont oxidize too.

This is my favorite foundation EVER! I have repurchased it 3 times and I always try to use it for "special events" because it performs so beautiful in pictures on my skin. The consistency is a little bit thick but not where it can get cakey on your skin. The finish is semi matte and that is my favorite part. It is foundation that still gives you a bit of a glow and allows for your natural skin to shine through. I really appreciate this formula a little bit better than the previous formulation. This one is easier to work with. I would recommend this to any woman and generally do recommend it to the women whom I am close with.

I love this! I have been suffering from acne all my life and last year I was on accutane so there was purging and long story short, it got a little better but I still have quite a few spots on my face. My face was super sensitive and uncomfortable, and mainly dry. However, I had an event at school, (our class dressed up as hogwarts students- super fun) and we needed to perform many times on stage. There was no way I could perform with my red and blotchy face (I had some solo moments too) under lights in front of the entire school so I rushed out to my nearest sephora at almost 9pm the night before and wanted to grab the cover fx natural finish foundation because the reviews and ingredients were great, however it was too thick for my liking so i scrambled around sephora to find something i like. There were a couple of foundations i liked, but the ingredients were just a no-no. Eventually I grabbed this, feeling stupid since i completely forgotten about this iconic foundation, checked it on cosdna.com and the ingredients were safe, so to the cashier it went. The next morning, I was praying so that this foundation will not ruin me, and I'm sooo grateful it didn't! I used it with a beauty blender and it looked and felt flawless, not a single itch on my face and I was surprised that it lasted through my sweat and tears xD In conclusion, I love this stuff and recommends it to everyoneee!

Used this to the bottom. I truly need this. It is a perfect color match and did not oxidize on me. My pet peeve is when I go in the sun and I can see my foundation face looking a different color than my neck. This stayed true on me all day. Blends well, did not cause pimples. omg if they DC this, I do not know what I will do!

I heard many good reviews about this but it was just meh when I used it. It sits matte-ly on my skin after applying and powdering, but somehow, by mid-day (in regular airconditioned environment), I get a bit oily on my T-zone. I have combi skin, but other foundations stay matte longer (e.g. Fenty, Kat von D, even Revlon Colorstay). For this price, I'd very much prefer to get the Fenty with some spare cash for a drugstore finishing powder. Also, for some reason the cap has become loose after few months of using, so I'm wary about bringing it on my travels. Cons aside, I do appreciate that this comes in many various shades of different undertones to suit different skin colors. I did a color test at Sephora and swatched a Y235 Ivory Beige. There is also a complementary concealer to go with if you're the kind that likes to buy all your products from one single brand.

Unfortunately, I won't repurchase this after I'm done with it. It may not be my go-to foundation cos of its low staying power, but it's good for no-make-up make-up looks during weekend errands :)

This foundation is good. I hesitated to put a review up because I fear I may have the wrong color in this shade which taints my point of view. I'm in the shade Y535 and it has super deep red undertones. I really have to work to lighten the color of this foundation due to the super red undertone and that is my biggest problem. This is a matte and super flat foundation and very strange (but in a good way) that it blurs out the imperfections and makes me camera ready. After the foundation dries and settles, you will appear to be airbrushed....I am not kidding. The foundation after 3-4 hours breaks though so you will need to touch-up throughout the day. This foundation is not one I'm reaching for a lot these days due to my dewy finish leanings lately...LOL. Its a decent foundation but if you take a lot of pictures or video film, etc., you will likely love this foundation.

Having an olive skin tone, it is not easy to find my shade in foundations. What appealed to me in this foundation is its 40 different shades. I asked for a sample of Y415 and the shade was perfect ! It was exactly my skin color. Unfortunately, I didn't seem to like it. The coverage was too light it didn't cover anything. Also, it was cakey.
