Always on the hunt for an exciting new foundation, I attended a Chantecaille "artist" make-up session. (I had used their tinted moisturiser, Just Skin but found it too thick and caused break-outs). Camomile was chosen for my quite fair, neutral to slightly warm skin. Looked good in the store and felt good. I bought it. Unfortunately I had to return the product as the colour he chose was wrong, too orange. I ended up with Vanilla which is still a bit too dark so I will be using it up before winter sets in. I like the product but feel (on me at least) it must be mixed with moisturiser to avoid streaking - or at least over a good primer, which I don't use every day - yes I know I should. Future Skin oxidises considerably on me. The make-up artist likened the product to Giorgio Armani's Lasting Silk which I mentioned was my favourite and HG for some years. I don't believe it is a fair comparison in my case as FS is much harder to apply. The packaging on Future Skin is average and would be better in a tube, similar to Just Skin. However I will return to Lasting Silk.

I have been on a long disappointing couple years of buying very high end makeup and either returning (thanks nordies) or throwing out (no thanks NM), and with living 4 hours from the nearest NM that carries Chantecaille, my bad luck has cost me a fortune. Let me begin by saying I will be 56 soon, have combo skin that now is showing signs of menopausal changes, I have tried them all for the most part. I wish you could see my makeup bags, some are there because I can't throw out 200$ bottles of makeup.:(. But I actually tried this at a NM four hours from my home, had the gal apply it and u drove home got home late and didnt wash my face( I know bad right) anyway when i woke up it my face looked great. Not greasy, not bumpy, and remarkably NO SLEEP DENTS OR LINES. So Im not sure what is in this that made the happen, but I drove the following week back to Nordies-4 hours away to buy it. I try to buy my things at nordics because they simply are the best if things dont work for your skin, I have to have most of my things shipped from nordics due to living in the boonies of wis. Again thank you nordies for 15$ overnight shipping. But back to this makeup, I am sold...I know I have reviews for other makeup, well I need to update them,=blah and not for me. Sometimes it takes a while for your skin to react to things in makeup and skincare, it does for me anyway. I have been using this now over a week, and i am never greasy after a couple hours, my face isn't flakey, it isn't red, and no break outs.I have even gone to work in a hot sticky kitchen at my restaurant. After sweating my makeup is still on. So all in all I am really impressed. The only thing I am not 100% impressed with it is because it is made in Japan. Seems to me that this formula could be made over here or perhaps the cult industry favorite would be France, or Italy, Sweden or Germany. I would feel better if it was made here. But maybe Japan is the reason this is so high tech. Anyway the coverage for me is great. It is smoothing fills my large pores-the end results of oily skin as a young gal. I got the color- vanilla, perhaps I will go one or two shades darker come summer. Or blend two shades darker with this vanilla to make the perfect color. I needed the pinker base rather then yellow. I was shown how to adjust the color in the future summer months. To save money I will probably get two shades darker with a bit if yellow to it. If you are not happy with your current foundation, I would say try this. I also set it with the subtle shade of loose powder from Chantecaille.

I debated on buying this product for so long. So far, I am very pleased I did. It has only been a week since I first tried it. After a long 10 hour day, my face does not look at dried out (I live in very dry Denver). I would not say this is that hydrating. It is not drying, but not really that hydrating. It has not caused any breakouts (thank God). My skin is pretty decent, some superficial scars, nothing bad. I prefer natural and light coverage. This is a keeper so far. I gave it 3 stars for the lousy packaging. But you probably cannot get a gel foundation into a jar. My hands are always super clean, so no problem.

After trying them all, this really became my "HG" foundation. I wear the shade "cream," which is a perfect match to my light olive skin (I also self tan a bit to give myself some color too). I find that this shade blends SO well, and I can wear it year round too. I see why they use this on celebrities (in movies, TV, award shows, etc). Nothing compares to how perfect this foundation makes your skin look. The trick is knowing how to apply it. I dot it on my face, then blend with a foundation brush. It gives your skin the PERFECT glow, while covering a lot. Now this isn't full-FULL coverage, and you still need a concealer for dark circles, blemishes, etc. But it's amazing in the sense that you can really layer this on when you're having a bad skin day and it doesn't LOOK like you're wearing a face full of heavy makeup! Yes, the price is really bad. But as much as some complain about how "unsanitary" the jar packaging is, they fail to see that AT LEAST you can get out EVERY DROP of product!!!! And when you're spending $80 a jar (or more with tax!), that matters. But BECAUSE of the price, this can only ever be my "special occasion" foundation. If you can afford to wear this foundation every day, you are very lucky (and very rich)!!! So on a daily basis, I stick to Physician's Formula mineral cushion foundation (along with their Instaready concealer) instead. But when I know I'm going to be in pictures or in front of the camera (sometimes I'm on TV with my work), nothing else compares to this foundation. I also love the fact that it doesn't have perfume in it and the ingredients are all natural, vegan, and good for you! This foundation is worth every penny because of this. Not only do you LOOK good, but your skin actually IMPROVES when you take it off at the end of the day. How many foundations have this effect?! I can remember using Armani's luminous silk foundation thinking I had "bad skin." Nope! Turns out, it was just bad foundation! So I cannot recommend this product enough!! They have an excellent shade range too.

Skin: Acne-prone, Fair-Medium, Not Sure
After following a skin care routine given to me by a dermal therapist for my mild acne, I was advised to change my makeup. I currently use and have been using Estee Lauder double wear and it is my HG foundation. Now, I have managed to clear my skin of any active pimples, however I am still plagued by some redness and scarring. For day time wear I can conceal this with a bit of concealer (L'oreal true match) and BB cream (Maybelline dream pure BB), and if I'm looking for a bit more coverage I'll set with either Australis fresh and flawless powder or Bareminerals matte powder foundation. Or alternatively, if I'm looking for full coverage, one coat of Estee Lauder double wear is more than enough for me. i LOVE EL doublewear, but much to my dismay my therapist told me that it was quite congesting, so I reluctantly went to Mecca for advice on an alternative product. I told the girl working that I wanted something medium to full coverage that wouldn't break me out. She suggested this product, so I got a sample. I first applied my bareminerals BB primer cream in the shade light. I then went in with my morphe Y6 flat buffer brush with a decent amount of product. FIRST IMPRESSION: Extremely disappointed with the coverage. Did nothing to hide my scarring; I could still see everything. So I went in with a second layer hoping it would be buildable, but this was not the case. I had to set it quite heavily with my bareminerals powder before I was satisfied enough to go to work with it on. The reason I'm giving this product 3 stars instead of 2 is because the actual foundation is absolutely beautiful if you want a sheer coverage. The color was perfect,I have light skin with a slight yellow undertone. It gave a really nice dewy finish which was nice change from the matte finish I got from EL doublewear. After 6 hours it was still in place, it didn't break me out, and it remained flawless throughout my shift.For the price, I would definitely go for something else. The fact that you would need to use so much product to get a slight coverage is definitely not value for money in my eyes.For someone with dry/normal clear skin, I couldn't recommend this product enough if you are willing to pay the price. For someone who wants more coverage on the other hand; this probably won't satisfy your needs. Glad I got a sample instead of paying the money for it!

The product itself is good but it is not worth the exorbitant price. The packaging is cheap plastic and it doesn't even have a pump; milani's foundation is $11 and has a pump! the coverage is medium and the finish is dewy but there are other foundations half the price that do the same thing; if you use a high coverage concealer with a B.B. Cream, this will also produce the same effect. This doesn't even have spf in it and if you have bumpy skin, it accentuates the bumps. The lasting power is average at best.

Gorgeous. I LOVE it. But it causes me to break out in places on my face that I've never broken out before - large white pimples in crazy places on my face. It really is gorgeous though. Try it out - but save your receipt in case you have the same problem and need to return it.

I wish I didn't like this foundation so much but I keep going back to it. It's so expensive but it's the only really natural foundation that always looks good.,I've very dehydrated skin, even though I've a great skincare regime I always look dry with other foundations. This is so good on dry skin, undetectable and a classy finish. I love it! Coverage is slowly build-able
