I just love this stuff! My skin tends to get really oily and I've never found a foundation that lasts all day, so my mom suggested this because it's what she wore when she was younger. I got this...

This foundation does indeed LAST on the skin. Even if your skin is dry you can use it with excellent results provided you start with a richer moisturizer. The only problem is the lack of good...

It's a really good foundation. The shade I bought is slightly darker than I thought it would be, but it's still a good match. I apply it with a foundation brush, as it has a siliconey, a bit...

This is a really good liquid foundation, blends very well, and it is even better when applied with the MN foudation brush. I am also fond of the tube it comes in. Seems to keep it fresh longer...

I've only used it for 2 days so I can't comment on its long term performance/breakouts. The foundation has a light, siliconey feeling upon application, it's easy to spread and blend, and the...

Good Stuff! I tried my mom's tube of this foundation because I wanted to see if it was truly long lasting on my very oily t-zone. Most foundations make me oily in about 4-5 hours. But this one kept...
