I bought this in a fit of feeling like I had money, ha. It is pricey. However, it blew any other foundation I've used over the decades out of the water! Goes on easy, wears well (especially with primer), very little transfer. Did not break me out or give me any bumps. The airless pump packaging ensures that I got every bit of my investment out of this bottle, which lasted about 4 months …Read more

After two weeks of trying to make this work, here are my takeaways:
Regardless of how I prime my face (or not), this stuff goes on like spackle and is impossible to blend, and oxidizes quickly. It wears sticky and rubs off on everything. The packaging and price point are good, but the product is a nightmare.

Terrifying. Used for first time yesterday morning and my usually oily scalp was itching like crazy. This morning, same thing, and when I got to my parking garage, NOTICED HAIR ALL OVER MY LAP. It had fallen out during my commute! This crap should be banned. I'm only sorry I didn't read the reviews here first.

This was the only routine change I made this past week. The result - exponentially oilier than usual by the time I reached the parking garage at 9 a.m., and watched my foundation slide off throughout the day. Best part - cystic acne all over. At this price, it should work without a lot of "but you need to" with it. $42 worth of big-name bullsh/t.

Does not work at all. Within two hours, my face was oilier than it has ever been, plus within four hours, my eyes started to burn (and I didn't place it anywhere near my eyes, but on my forehead...must be migrating). Will not repurchase.

I used Level 6. This did not work for me at all. After 3 months of diligent use, my skin is rougher, my acne worse and of a more severe kind, and no effect on my fine lines at all. The packaging is good, but it would help if the contents were worth the price!

This foundation is the closest I've come to an HG foundation for my very oily, sensitive skin. I've made peace with the fact that no foundation will ever be truly matte on my face, but this one at least lasts the day with only a little blotting.

The color selection works well with the pink undertones in my skin, and the coverage is somewhere between thin and too …

My skin is "very oily", which could be why this makeup is not matte on me, ever. I'm blotting as soon as I apply it. When blinking, I can feel on my eyelids how sticky it is.

The color selection is on the orange side and my complexion is on the pink side, so it looks obvious when I apply but then just plain ridiculous as the day goes on and the makeup …

I write this w/the caveat that I've got oily skin. Really oily. Matte is a fever dream for me, a happy place where only others live.
That said, after applying this makeup according to the directions:
Face was an oil slick by noon.
No matter how lightly applied, accentuated every wrinkle on my face.
My eyes burned as the makeup progressively melted throughout the day …

The review below is EXACTLY what happened to me both times I tried this product: red bumps and flakes, showing up almost instantaneously. So, I didn't bother to continue using the product and learning how to apply it properly, since my skin obviously hated it. The positive is that Everyday Minerals sells its makeup in trial sizes, charging for postage only. So, unlike my unsuccessful …Read more
