description

Our beloved Balance-n-Brighten foundation makes shade matching a breeze. Color correcting swirls of multicolored liquid pigments are baked for 24 hours on terracotta tiles and hand-finished in Italy. The result is weightless coverage that applies with the ease of a powder but has the benefits of a cream.

I typically use bareMinerals BARE PRO performance wear powder foundation (Dawn) and a light application with a kabuki brush makes my skin look lovely. It was time to replace my bareMinerals, so I...

I tried this a few years ago and wasn't wowed by it, but for what it cost I was reluctant to toss it out. It's probably past it's shelf life, but I reached for it again recently and decided to give...

I tried this based on the enthusiastic reviews. I don’t like or need heavy coverage so I decided to give it a try. I don’t see any difference after applying this either in appearance of texture. ...

I've seen mixed reviews. I can see where it wouldn't work for some people. Really easy to use. Just brush on lightly and have coverage. I can't say my skin requires major correction anyway so I...

I tried this using QVC and had to return it. I'm NC20 and the shade Fair was way too dark and orangey for me. It didn't start off too bad, but as the day wore on it oxidised and looked wrong. ...

For color match, I like this better than Double Take. It is more forgiving for a better shade match. I also like that this can go on sheer to a medium coverage. Double Take tends to cake up in...

Interesting product. The coverage is sheer but very buildable. It definitely makes me feel like my face is less "dirty" as opposed to liquid foundation. My only drawback on it is I have to wait...

I do like this, but I have to mix it with a lighter and more yellow toned powder for it to work on my skin and not turn muddy. The fair light looks red on my light olive toned skin. I wouldn't...

Start by saying I LOVE the formula. It's a YSBB, satin, easy-on powder, that could just as easily be a setting powder over a light foundation as what it is intended to be, a buildable, sheer to...

Bought this in Fair. The color wasn’t the problem but rather it just stuck on my skin. Settled. Oxidized. Then low and behold I began to itch. It’s going back and I’m back to MAC Next To Nothing...
