I love this foundation! This is the only foundation I have tried that doesn't look like a dry cakey mess! I found my perfect shade, which I have not been able to do with any other foundations. It has a very natural finish that lasts all day on me. I have used a lot of drugstore and high end foundations and this is the best yet!

I have this foundation in the EU version 1.5.N linnen and apply it without primer/setting spray and with a dry RT sponge.

I love this foundation! It's a good match for me, and I got the right shade in one go when ordering online by looking at swatches and some videos.
It's a very liquidy foundation that goes on really smooth. It doesn't have any scent, and I'd say it has a velvety finish. It looks very natural/ skin like, blurs my pores and feels like I'm not wearing anything on my face. It's definitely buildable with itself, but I did have a bit of a sliding issue when I applied concealer (Maybelline instant age rewind).
I wore this foundation side by side with the milani conceal and perfect (shade 00B same application) and this one looked a lot more full coverage because of the finish and pore blurring. They both wore well for a 10 hour day.
One thing I did notice that kinda annoys me, is that it contains small particles of glitter/sparkle, which you can see in certain lighting. They stick around after rinsing my foundation off. I haven't taken any flash pictures with it, but I imagine it won't be very charming, so be aware of that.
This foundation (and the milani) didn't cause any breakouts or eczema, which I'm prone to.

This will be my new go to foundation! It looks natural and work well for my low maintenace routine (no primer or setting).
I'd recommend this foundation to anyone who wants a natural, low fuss foundation. (and try applying it with a dry sponge if wet didn't work out for you!)

I’m so disappointed in this foundation. I was colour matched by the SA and sent away with a shade that was way too dark. I liked the formula so I thought I’d spend more money (they wouldn’t exchange foundation at Boots) and get a lighter shade. I found a much better match by myself and yet when I wore it at home it oxidized to deep orange within 30 mins. In the UK this has nice packaging and comes with a pump. The formula wore okay, it looked a bit dry at first, but lasted about 8 hours before it started to get patchy. It could be a nice foundation but I won’t buy another shade.

Not a true match! I tried the three lightest shades and all were too dark for my pale skin. The foundation is medium-coverage, with medium staying powder. It can look a little cakey at times.

My favourite foundation. I use make-up for quite some time and I always come back to this. Is buildable, covers everything nicely, gives a natural glow and doesn't cling to dry patches. I have an oily T zone and I usually set the area with powder from the same range. I preffer the more natural make-up and this delivers. You can see my beauty marks through it. I apply it with a foundation brush, a sponge and even with my fingers and everytime it looks great. Also the colour is perfect for me (I use Vanilla Rose in the glass bottle with pump). I apply it in the morning and after a day at the office it's still going strong. It looks good in natural light and artificial as well.

My bottle was a gift a 'Look Good Feel Better' cancer event. The colour D3-W3 was given rather than chosen. It is a little orange for me as I am pinker based. As for coverage, (note I usually wear tinted moisturizers) I would say medium. It covers pigmentation and a red capillary almost but not fully. I could get away without concealer except under my eyes. I feel my skin looks a little dull (my skin is the same colour all over) but this could be as I usually wear a sheerer finish. Pores around my nose have that 'dotty' look. This colour is too dark for my favourite blusher Benefit Dandelion. I'm going to give it a few more goes as I'm not used to a foundation. Also, it is currently winter in Australia so it may be a better colour match useful later in the year. Will alter review after more use.

First, let me say I did not want to buy this foundation. I wanted the L'oreal LUMI in the bottle;; but for whatever reason, l'Oreal does not make C2 in Lumi in a bottle. It is available in compact form, which is little foundation for a bigger price. Nonetheless, I have both. (I do wish l'Oreal would make Lumi in C2 in the bottle with a pump) . I found this foundation to be excellent, buildable, and I like that quality. It does not go on heavy (I apply with a sponge); and gives I would say light to medium coverage. It feels "clean" on my skin and I like that. I had been using several other products and for whatever reason, I started to break out , and badly (one would think that in one's 60's, we gals would be past that) and with this, I do not. I do use a finishing powder with it ( ELF shimmer, the most wonderful loose powder, for six bucks, you cannot go wrong, its the bomb). I know some women prefer a bottle with a pump but I always suspect that pumps leave a lot in the bottle that we cannot use. I gave price 4 lippies because it is a small bottle compared, again, to Lumi. But, it is still a great foundation for the price.

I have used this foundation for years off and on. I finally made the decision to not repurchase, I am sick of this foundation making me look like a grease ball! I already have an oily T-zone and I have noticed this foundation cannot withstand an oily face at all. I apply it in the morning for work and not even two hours later I have to use a blotting sheet. I just switched to Revlon Colorstay and I have not had to blot my face this morning at all, such a massive difference in those foundations. The Loreal color selection is great but I have always worn the shade W4 and the color oxidizes so my face looks more pink/red than my neck even though I am wearing a "warm" shade. Good news is (and why I used for so long) it never broke me out and did provide ample coverage however, I would not recommend to anybody with oily skin or even combination skin as you will have to blot your face at least 4-5 times a day.

I tried this a few years back and never wrote a review. Product goes on the skin well, used W3 nude beige. Looking at the bottle now I don’t think that’s gonna suit me, unless I got super tanned. The thing with this foundation is that before mid day the foundation has already made me look like a grease ball. This is not for people who have oily skin. I would recommend trying if you have dry skin. Such a shame, because if the finish is more matte I would have wear this everyday as it comes with spf 17 as well.

This is the only drugstore foundation I wear, and it beats a lot of high end foundations for me too. I’m between an NC35-NC41 depending on if I’ve gotten a tan, and I am W3 or W4 in this foundation, usually a W4. Great color match, I’ve got a lot of gold in my skin and this does too. Easy to apply and blend. I use a brush and then go over it with a damp bare beauty blender to keep it from looking too heavy. My only slight complaint is this can look too cakey if applied heavily.
