One of the best mattifying foundation that i’ve tried, and this foundation is my second top fave after MUFE HD FOUNDATION. At first, i thought the texture is very thick, but once i apply it, it blends beautifully. It doesnt feel thick, tacky, tight or heavy on my face, it feels smooth like skin, plus this foundation doesn’t oxidize too. During midday i still get oily but not very oily, the foundation still intact without any streaks or cakiness til the end of the day. The price is quite reasonable, based on the quality of the formula. The packaging is very basic and practical, nothing fancy.

This was a huge disappointment. It went on like velvet, looked beautiful when I set it with powder and slid off my face in less than 2 hours. I am super oily, but this was awful. I literally had no foundation left on the center of my face. It was just gone. Next!

I love this Foundation. It covers everything. I went camping with my family and throughout the day it stayed in place.I also did hike and get into the water and it wasn't melting off..

This is literally the foundation I will ALWAYS love. Never disappoints. I have oily oily skin and this stays on for sooo long and just makes my skin look flawless. It also doesn’t break me out or goes on extremely matte to where my skin looks chalky. This is the foundation that will always be number 1 in my collection. Also it doesn’t break me out and I have world’s most sensitive skin. It’s pricey but very worth it.

Can't believe I'm saying this is an HG foundation after only two wears, but I'm afraid that is exactly what I'm saying. I purchased this before my graduation ceremony because I heard it photographed well and was good for oilier skin (compared to the HD foundation). This went on like a dream!! I don't think you can really sheer this out, it's definitely on the heavier side of medium coverage. This looks amazing in photographs, and my oily nose and forehead stayed matte for 15 hours! I accidentally slept in this too and my makeup was still intact the next morning. The real kicker for me was looking in the mirror at my forehead after taking my graduation cap on and off all day, and this barely rubbed off of my forehead. I will probably have to save this for special occasions since it is so pricey ($41 USD at Sephora) but I think this is wonderful for special events or really full coverage! Shade selection was okay, not a ton of variation between shades except for undertones.

I have used this product for about three years and absolutely love it! I suffered from pretty severe acne for a few years and this is the only thing that got me out of my house everyday. It has great coverage and the finish is very pretty. It is very buildable so often I would build it up on the acne spots instead of using concealer and it hid them very well. Usually after an 8 hour day I would start to see a little oil coming through my t-zone, but a quick blot and this still looked good through the evening. My skin has recently cleared up so I have switched to a much more sheer foundation, but this is still my go to for a full face night out.

I have combination/oily skin and this product emphasises dry patches on my face I didn't even know I had. My whole face becomes a dry patch mess when I have this on - and I exfoliate regularly! Other foundations have never done that. So no.

I have gone through several bottles of this over the years, and though my tastes (and skin) has changed, I still think it is a nice foundation. I don't really go for a super-matte look anymore, which is probably why I don't care for it now, but when I did want my skin to be a shine-free zone I loved this stuff. I also liked that MUFE made very pale skin-friendly shades. The packaging is decent, but when it starts to run low it gets to be kinda hard to squeeze out. If you're looking for a very flat finish foundation that lasts fairly well but feels light on the skin then this one is definitely for you.

First, I'll say its obvious being close to paper white its next to impossible to find a foundation that doesnt color me orange. This is one of the only brands that actually has a shade that matches me, but It does keep me matte all day with a velvety texture and has concealer like coverage: the only downside is that it does crease throughout the day a bit even with primers/setting spray.

I have been on a quest to find my HG foundation. This isn't it, but it's not totally awful.

Coverage:
I applied this first with a beauty blender, but it sheered out this medium coverage foundation to sheer coverage. Imo it goes on better with a brush.

Wear time:
I have DRY skin so I never set my foundations- and I especially didn't think i'd have to set a MATTE foundation. But it actually got shinier than my GA Luminous Silk foundation. Idk how people with oily skin wear this, unless they're using primer and setting powder (but if it's a matte foundation you shouldnt need all of that?).

At the end of the day, i still had most of my skin problems covered. There was a lot of shine in my t-zone, but the foundation was still on.

More stuff:
The color selection was pretty decent, and the squeeze top packaging dispenses a good, prudent amount of product.

Overall, it's not a bad foundation for the price but it just didn't stand out to me. Too matte to be glowy, too shiny to be matte- it's great if you happen to be an EXACT color match but I'm not buying this again.
