I bought this foundation online because of the beauty youtuber hype. I initially noticed the lightest shade (porcelain) was orange based so I ordered their white mixer to make it paler. I have slightly dry acne prone skin.The application itself was okay & almost medium coverage, but I just dislike like the formula/texture. Its too dewy, just floated on the skin, emphasized pores & lines, caked & separated in places, and just looked weird. It creased under my eyes badly even when I didn't use it alone! I couldn't wait to wash it off. I initially noticed my pores were more clogged than usual and then two days later I got several severe cystic acne spots (which I rarely get). Now I know why it was so cheap.

I've seen a lot of You tubers Reviewing this foundation and most seem relatively positive, and I can see why. It has a nice light feel for such a full-ish coverage, and it never felt heavy or greasy as it wore. I bought "Vanilla" which was a good color match for my pale, neutral-toned skin. I dotted it on and applied it with a brush. Initially the coverage looked good. A little bit of the product goes a long way. As it dried down, however, I found that in the areas where I'd applied a heavier layer, the excess caked and looked heavy, and made me look older, and I have really clear, even skin. So next I tried using a lighter hand -- even though I had used a small amount of product the first time. It looked better, though the coverage wasn't exactly what I wanted. I tried it with a silicone-based primer, and that didn't seem to make any difference. The formula just didn't seem to sit properly on my mature combo skin. It wasn't particularly illuminating, which I liked, but wasn't matte either, which I also liked. I'm giving it a higher score because it went on nicely, didn't oxidize and the color was a good match. I think it's a really good foundation, especially for the price, even if it isn't for my type of skin.

So i thought i'd submit a review for this new LA girl foundation since there isn't too much info available as yet.I bought this recently because the packaging was awesome and it excited me. Yeah.. impulse buy! Don't know what possessed me to buy an illuminating foundation when i have super oily skin. So anyway, i am somewhere smack in the middle of NC42 - 44. Can lean closer to either way, depending on the season. And the shade i picked was Bronze.The packaging is a classy plastic bottle that comes with a pump and a cover. Yay for hygiene! The bottle is double-walled, so you can't predict your shade by just looking at it. Please test it before buying! really!My first attempt scared me a little...it was sooo orange and seemed a bit too dark. And yes, it was super dewy. I set it with Palladio rice powder but i quickly became shiny...a greaseball really. It looked gross as the day went on. Was super bummed as i couldn't return or exchange it since i had bought it during a discounted clearance sale. Not that it was thattt cheap a discount too! But its the wastage that mostly bothers me. Besides i'm pretty sure the shades up and down were too light and too dark respectively.So anyway, I suffered with orange face through a whole work day, although i must say, it didn't look too bad in natural light.Second attempt....because i'm not a quitter! I tried it again. This time, i only used a teeny bit of my Benefit porefessional primer to dab on the cheeks where i have some scarring and nowhere else. I applied a lesser amount of the foundation and dabbed with my RT blender. It does spread easily and smoothly and i would say coverage is medium. This time i set it with my Ben Nye Neutral Set powder and the banana powder under the eye.This took away all the shine and gave it a matte finish that was beautiful. The powder also seemed to correct the orangeness of the foundation. I was actually really pleased with how smooth and flawless my skin looked! I will use it as a day to day foundation until i use up but i probably won't repurchase. Look at the cons for why!Pros:- Packaging is great. Looks on par with high end foundations with the exception of plastic instead of glass. Who cares?-Comes with a pump!-Will look great on dry-skinned ladies who want a bit of a glow-Can work for oily skinned ladies with a (very good) mattifying powder-Easy to blend and doesn't settle into pores-Applied with the RT sponge, there was no caking or creasing (I can imagine this happening if too much product is used though)-Gives a beautiful finish if you don't use too much-Lasts throughout an entire workday and doesn't oxidize.Cons-Shades lean a little too orange/red (at least the darker ones)-Not transfer proof (it even stained the wire of my earphones) - This is a deal breaker for me.-It has a fairly strong synthetic scent which I hate but it dissipates after application.-Cannot be used without a good mattifying powder for oily skinned people or you will look like a ball of grease right off the bat.-Might not work well with primers if you have oily skin
