I really had high hopes for this foundation. I read reviews here and on Beautipedia before buying and went straight away to purchase. This is a very watery lightweight foundation. If you are looking for a sheer, natural look this may work for you. I have sensitive skin and have a bit of red to cover and this not only failed to cover that, it actually seemed to make it worse. It did not sting going on but if I got hot while wearing it would start to burn. This foundation looked good at first but didn't wear well at all as the day went on. If you have really great skin and want sheer light coverage, this is great. But for me, it did pretty much nothing and actually felt like it made my skin look worse. Price is way high as well.. Better foundations are out there for much less. Sigh... the search continues..

This is very unique and very amazing! The texture is thin so it can be built up if more coverage is needed and it does not look cake-y at all. I think it improves the completion too. It's recommended to use a brush to apply but I use fingers and I can't imagine it applying any better. Love this!

It really does leave me with even natural looking skin; definitely not the formula for anyone looking for full coverage. I also didn't find it buildable but was looking for a sheer alcohol-free foundation and this fit the bill. I purchased in shade 3 for my NC30 / C4 asian neutral tan skin and the match was a touch warm but worked fine. I love the finish and it doesn't emphasize the pores on my combo oily skin whatsoever. GREAT light small bottle packaging. One lippie off for staying power; looks good for about 6 hours tops, then touch up is def needed but all in a good find.

I love this foundation. Am dry and hate the look of foundation. This looks like real skin and has only enough coverage to even out minimal discoloration. Costs $$$ but am on my 4th bottle. Have yet to find anything that compares!

I was on the hunt for a new foundation and you MUA girls turned me on to this one. A big THANK YOU. If I had sampled this watery fluid at a Trish counter I would have passed but the free shipping from Nordstrum's encouraged my experimentation. When I first applied it (with fingers) it just seemed to be sloshing around and barely leaving a trace of anything. But when it "settled in" I saw remarkably even skin and no appearance of makeup. It has to be shaken very well - ok I can do that - and dabbed around the face before being blended in. A sponge might absorb too much of the product so fingers are best. As the directions on the bottle specify, the technique is to pat it into the skin instead of blending it around. No big learning curve though.This is summer makeup at its best however I'll be using it regularly. I got the 2.5 shade being fair/neutral and it is perfectly balanced. Well balanced neutrals are not easy to find as most are too beige. I touch up the redness around my nose with Bobbi Brown's touch up stick in Sand. On special occasions the G A Luminious Silk #4 will come out. For reference I have also used Bobbi Brown in Cool Sand and Nars in Deauville. At $60 USD this is rather hefty for the amount you get (bottle is really small) but very little is needed..UPDATE: boy am I disappointed! This oxidized within an hour and had an orange cast. This never happened to me with any other foundation

I've completely changed my mind about this product. My initial response was that Shade 2 was too yellow and didn't provide enough coverage. After a few uses, I've leaned how to best apply this product. First, the right brush is critical: either Trish's stippling brush, deluxe blender, or a kabuki brush is best. I stipple the product in with her deluxe blender. Second, the right primer makes a world of difference: I use my Le Metier de Beaute Daily moisturizer as moisturizer, sunscreen, and primer for that perfect luminosity (remember that Even Skin provides no sun protection). And last, step back and allow Even Skin to do its magic: in five minutes, it looks completely different then it did when it was first applied. I know this seems like a lot of work, but it has become a simple routine for me that gives great payoff: luminous, glowing skin. Since trying Even Skin, I've had strangers tell me that I have beautiful skin (I have to give Le Metier credit as well). Give it a try!

So, pretty, pretty good foundation. Im not floored but I am pleasantly surprised. I was expecting a pretty meh foundation out of this after having exhausted other options (including GA LSF, MUFE HD, chanel teint innocence/vitalumiere, etc). I really just wanted something simple and basic. In summer I was using YSL radiance matt powder which is good but for winter with my combo skin, not so much, and kind of settles around my dry skin. I also like the more natural look in winter more anyway. I do get oily as the day goes on though a little bit esp in the nose and chin areas. So I decided to give this a go . My skins' problems are--potential to breakout (pretty sensitive ugh), large pores, different undertones (face is pretty pink but otherwise neck etc. are pretty yellow). Also since I get oily through the day but am dryer in cheeks and jawline area my skin is just really difficult to deal with in terms of perfect foundation.This has been pretty good. Used it for two weeks now, almost every day with some breaks in between. First off, NO BREAKOUTS (yay). Second, when the SA tried this on me at Nordys, she used a stippling brush and it seemed to go on pretty flawless, looking like real skin (still some of my skin texture showing through, just sort of airbrushing my pores out a bit but you can still tell they exist just not all gross and clogged and in your face. kind of just my skin but better really). Also really evened out the yellow/pink undertones issue in my skin (I am about an NC20-25 and a #3 in this was perfect). Its also superrrrr light reminds me of just a really watery tinted moisturizer almost, but when it goes on has much better coverage than a TM IMHO. It felt like the lightest layer ever and just sort of melted in. I was sold on it. Tiniest bit required. I Went straight to ulta and got a stippling brush (ive realized if i dont apply things EXACTLY The way theyre shown to me I just dont get the same results), and indeed I did get the same my skin but better, glowy natural look with it while stippling. Also, it holds pretty well agianst the oil (but see below)I still wouldnt give this a 5 just because--1. its expensive2. I prefer a see through bottle where I can tell how much is left; cant really see through this dark bottle and also cant estimate how much is left by the weight since its so lightweight to begin with.3. i dont know if i like the squeezy, maybe a pump would be better4. it holds well against oil if I use my NARS oil free primer underneath but if I try others (smashbox) or go without primer and just use daily sunblock it actually doesnt hold well esp in the nose area against oil. otherwise though does hold up quite a while (8 ish hours on my combo skin). otherwise an absolutely beautiful foundation. i will continue to buy as it works for me, and if i dont find anything better (which at this point i actually doubt i will ive tried just too many things). however i am happy with this, very happy indeed.

I've always had negative feeling towards foundation. Most are either mask like, heavy, fragranced, pore clogging, streaky or wrong color shade. This isn't anything like the foundations of yesterday. It's water based and makes my skin feel and look hydrated. It is also unbelievably sheer and much more sheer than tinted moisturizers. I use this in 2.5 shade choice and it is a lovely light - med. neutral shade. I just wished it weren't so expensive. I had to knock off a point for that reason alone. I bought this to wear to an event 3 weeks ago, and my skin looks flawless in the pictures taken at the event. Just ordered the face color and we'll see how the two look together.

Tried Clarins and they were all too heavy -made my lines show up more. Tried a sample of thiAa and really like it-so went to Nordys to purchase. It was $55 for one oz, which is way to much but if I like it a lot, it is worth it. It does not take a lot, covers nice but looks real and healthy and stays on well. And no allergies or breakouts so far which is unusual for me. Soooo, I'm hoping this will be my HG!

I used to love this foundation just because it is so sheer and natural looking. The coverage is "almost there - almost non-existing", however I loved it for a daily look.Cons:- It stings my eyes like crazy! I do not know what is inside this thing but whenever I apply it closer to my eyes, my eyes become red, tearing and stinging. It never happened to any other foundation. So it's a big no-no for me.- Coverage too little, hard to apply.- Does not stay on for long.- Broke out my skin.- Expensive, small size.Pros:- Natural look.- Moisturizing enough, does not dry out my skin.
