I tried DL Light a few years back and it was very drying and chalky, with only a few shades available. I bought the reformulated version, and this stuff kicks butt! It goes on sheer, buildable to light-medium at best, which is precisely the kind of coverage I'm looking for. It does live up to its name of "soft matte," as it gives a satin finish with a slight glow that …Read more

Unfortunately, this didn't do much in moisturizing my dry skin for the winter. It does feel quite nice on my face. It has a thick, smooth texture. But this doesn't compare to thick, creamy moisturizers that my skin soaks up a bit better.

This is a pretty standard US chemical sunscreen, except in a light, matte formula. Because it's a light consistency, it doesn't spread very far and you have to use a lot to get the proper protection. The bottle is so small and it's so expensive that I feel like I have to be frugal with it and that I can't slather it on properly like other sunscreens. It feels wonderful on …Read more

The fact that this oxidizes tremendously is a huge dealbreaker for me, so I don't think I'll be using it again. HOWEVER, this hits off all the other check marks for me. It feels great when you put it on with a brush because it's a smooth mousse-like formula, the shade match is perfect upon application, and the finish is radiant but not oily. I put powder and spray on top and it …Read more

I've been using Cerave AM for years now, but I think they reformulated it somehow, because it feels different from this new bottle that I bought. This formula is thicker and more difficult to spread. It always left a *slightly* white cast on my face, but this one makes me look ghostly. It doesn't sit well underneath foundation at all - the white cast like, persists through the …Read more

I got this at Walmart for under $6 USD and I wasn't expecting much of a wow, but I was wrong. For the price, this foundation is kind of amazing. Coverage is light to medium at most, it covers my redness pretty well, and it has lasting potential. This is a VERY radiant foundation, it's about 75 degrees F out and I definitely needed powder and spray to set. Even with powder/spray …Read more

I've been looking for a light-coverage, everyday foundation that gives a natural finish, and this is it. It has a mousse-like consistency and spreads so well and blends so easily. I like the coverage a lot - it's a true light-coverage, more than sheer, less than medium. It's enough to cover redness, but not dark pigmentation, which I use concealer for. Like a lot of …Read more

I was really skeptical after reading all the biased reviews on Sephora (people got this product for free from Influenster in exchange for a review on Sephora.com, which is never a trustworthy reference), but I wanted to try this out for myself, so I went out and bought it. I was looking for a sheer coverage, everyday no-makeup-look foundation for the warm months that doesn’t make my face look …Read more

This foundation knocked my socks off! This was an impulse buy and I was planning on returning it, but I definitely am not after trying it.

This is a light (buildable to medium) coverage foundation with a natural finish. This covers all my redness and is undetectably natural and “skin-like.” It’s perfect for this cold, February weather. I did get slightly shiny after about 5 hours, but …

I really had high hopes for this foundation! It got a lot of good feedback on youtube so I had to try it. I have dry, dull, dehydrated skin, and I really love dewy foundations. The original DW formula was way too dry and cakey for me. For their DW Light, I was in between shades. So I thought this would be a great, dewy version of their original. But this isn't exactly dewy, it just …Read more
