About a year ago, I thought Prescriptives had gone out of business, and that made me sad. Not because I thought there was anything spectacular about any of their products, but I just thought it was a shame. So when I found out they had started an online business, I was happy for them, and decided to check it out. After some recent bad experiences trying to select the correct foundation color …Read more

I've always been a fan of Prescriptives foundations. On a whim I decided to try something lighter and different. After so many years of searching I've finally found the perfect foundation for me. It blends in well with my other skincare products and gives my dry skin an extra bit of moisturizing. I have a relatively smooth and even complexion but when I use this with a tiny dab of …Read more

My HG foundation. I have used this for years and years, even when I worked for Clinique (shhhh, don't tell!) Technically, it's a tinted moisturizer, but way better than the standard TM. It totally kills all redness and will cover some discoloration. You do need a concealer for any active pimples. Most importantly, it doesn't run, disappear, flake, settle into lines, etc. This …Read more

Sure, just when I try this and love it, Prescriptives goes out of business! Just my luck. Anyway, I'm a MAC C3, Stila C, and Level 3 is a perfect match. I love the texture, light-diffusing properties, the ease of application, the moisturization, how natural it looks on the skin, the way it doesn't sink into/emphasize wrinkles and pores, and how it wears. I wish it gave just a bit more …Read more

This is a nice, generic tinted moisturzer that's easy to apply (you just slap it on). No staying powder and is a bit on the greasy side.
<p>
I often just use primer to even out my skintone but if I want to go one step up, I put this on and it evens out my skin without actually covering anything. It's great for a truly natural look.

i use this to even out skintone unevenness. it is very light and sheer and it gives a great dewy glow. it goes on a lot better if your skin is nicely moisturized beforehand.

wouldn't recommend this unless you have pretty good skin already.

Even though I am a Px junkie and love just about all their stuff, this tinted moisturizer just did not do it for me. It provided absolutely no coverage. There was a bit of shimmer but other than that ---Nothing. Being one who suffers from occasional acne breakouts I always have something to cover. I tried using concealer under the TM but it just looked unattractive. Honestly, the only time I …Read more

I LOVE this stuff!!! I'm on my third bottle. I have sensitive, VERY oily moderately acne-prone far-from-perfect skin. But I don't like heavy makeup that creates the mask of perfection. (I kinda have issues with "scaring" people just because I've washed my makeup off!) So with that, I prefer my makeup to be as light and look as natural as possible to enhance the best of …Read more

Left me quite greasy, didn't cover or brighten, useless as a primer.

I had been using Virtual Skin for about two years and ran out so I went to the Prescriptives counter to pick up another bottle. The MA there told me I had such nice skin that I didn't need the coverage of a foundation and pointed me to this. I used Real Gold in the Virtual Skin and Level 3 was a perfect match for me. The coverage is very sheer and it helps to just even things out a bit and …Read more
