One of the worst foundations i had ever tried. It oxidizes on your skin and leaves you looking orange/brown and greasy also. It does not control the oil. And they do not have great shade range for...

I purchased this on a whim and I was so disappointed. Although the consistency was good, it doesn't look like you have actually got anything on. I tried using a damp sponge and a brush. It doesn't...

I got a sample of this at Sephora in the color cashmere (Mac NC20 for reference). This has got to be the sh*tt*est foundation I have ever tried (low and high end). It covered squat and I had the...

I love Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation, but I decided to buy this because I wanted something that was cheaper. I really like it for an everyday, light coverage foundation. It is very...
