This product is pointless: it's NOT sheer at all, it adds coverage and cakeyness. I don't feel like it sets my foundation and I don't feel like it takes away shine. Also, the price is expensive, because you only get 5.5g of product! That's the size of a blush! The only positive is the packaging, I think it looks cute. But the powder feels very dollar store.

I quite like this because it's cheap, does the job and it's sold literally everywhere. It's a heavy moisturizer for dry skin. Hate the fragrance though, wish it didn't have fragrance!

The perfect powder. Period. It they ever discontinue this, I'll have a breakdown. Takes shine away without adding coverage or cakeyness. You can layer a thousand times and it still looks natural. I have tried finding dupes for this with no luck, I'll be repurchasing this forever!

It is so important to check makeupalley before buying products. I forgot MA existed and started watching YouTube. Well, everyone seems to love this foundation there! In reality, it doesn't stay on. I wore it for less than 4 hours and when I got home it wasn't on my face anymore! It also looks very "flat", you definitely need to use blush or bronzer with this foundation …Read more

This has the exact look and consistency of cream cheese. If you spread this on toast and serve it people are gonna eat it without questioning. Also, even though this is the thickest cream I have ever seen, it does not moisturize at all. It's very sticky and tacky. It also claims to reduce redness. I have very minor redness and this did not make it go away. And this has a lot of mineral oil …Read more

It's an ok moisturizer. Works. However I don't exactly understand the point of this product. You have to apply this moisturizer the exact same way you'd apply any other ordinary cream: rubbing it all over your body. So it's not a time saver. The only difference is that you're applying it in the shower instead of your bedroom. Also, it's kind of dangerous to apply a …Read more

I'm a high-end snob, but I have to say this is the best concealer I have ever used. Very pigmented but hardly cakey. Covers everything really well and looks natural. Very inexpensive so it's worth the shot. The packaging is functional and looks good for the low price.

Don't believe the hype around this product. You can achieve a more natural finish and the same coverage with foundations like Studio Fix Fluid and Revlon Colorstay. I think this is good as a spot concealer but that's all. Oh, and yes, no matter how you apply it (damp sponge, warm product, stippling brush, fingers) it will look cakey. If you sheer it out a bit it will still look powdery …Read more

This burns like hell when applied. Should have checked the ingredients first, alcohol is second on the list. Who still adds alcohol in face products in the 21st century?

So-so. It has light/medium coverage, so your blemishes and undereye darkness still peek through. Looks natural as far as makeup goes, but again it's not really full coverage. It's rather moisturizing, but still creases a little on the undereye. Also, it doesn't last long at all, slides off quickly - I have dry/combination skin so I would imagine this wouldn't stick at all on …Read more
