I got the shade Cappuccino. Went on smoothly, nice and matte. I thought for sure I’d found a great foundation. Then within two hours, it oxidized to a horrible shade of brick orange. Thank Goodness I had makeup remover wipes in my car.

Going straight to the trash can ????

Within minutes of applying this foundation, I know this was getting returned. It had a weird finish that looked heavy and caked, like stage makeup. It clearly looked unnatural. It also emphasized texture, making my skin look rough. I returned it ASAP.

To me this is the closest I’ve gotten to a drugstore concealer that is comparable to my favorite NARS radiant creamy concealer. It’s easy to apply and lasts all day on my oily skin with little or no creasing and has great coverage. I also love that it doesn’t dry out the under eye area like tarte shape tape.

I’ve tried to make this product work for several months but I’m realizing it’s just not for my skin type. I’m extremely oily with large pores. Initially, it goes on nicely and smoothes my skin. But within an hour of applying a matte foundation, my skin is shiny and greasy and my pores look like caverns. I’ve tried several other foundations with the same results. There’s something in this primer …Read more

It’s ok. It makes a decent every day foundation especially if you need SPF. I have the darkest shade which I believe is deep and it’s an ok shade but I’m thinking the spf makes it look almost grayish when applied. I had to use my bronzer to counteract the gray cast.

It did wear well and didn’t become crazy oily after several hours. I’ll finish the tube but
won’t repurchase.

I had a sample of this and decided to wear this to work. OMG it smells horrible to me. I felt self conscious because I wondered if everyone at work could smell it. It’s a strange, chemical scent that I couldn’t wait to wipe off. Not for me.

This is a heavy lanolin based lip balm. Lanolin is an old school ingredient and I'm surprised to see it in a lip product because a lot of people are allergic to it. I remember using it as an ointment when I was a nursing mom,

I have mine in maple, a sheer bronze color that applies clear to me. The thick texture is what helps this balm to wear long and its perfect for wearing …

It’s important to always try a foundation for yourself, despite reviews. I was certain this was going to be an oily mess due to the reviews. I read about how this broke up and became an oily mess at the 3 hour mark. I’m very oily but I was willing to take a chance and try this foundation.

I primed with Hourglass Mineral Veil and set with Too Faced Peach Perfect Mattifying powder. With …
