I absolutely LOVE this foundation! Looks beautiful on my dry skin. I love the look of it and the lasting power, shade range, but took off a lippie because I really only got it to work using a very precise application method, which is also quite time-consuming, so if I’m in a hurry, this would certainly not be my go-to foundation. The method goes like this:

I apply a thick sunscreen …

I got a sample of this and tried it on. The shade match was fine but boy is this foundation a nightmare for dry skin!! I had exfoliated and moisturized my face prior to trying it on but the foundation appeared scaly all over my dry bits.

The coverage is also quite poor - can be buildable but I still hated it because it accentuated all my dry spots.

If you have oily or …

I really hated this foundation at first. I used to apply it with my fingertips and ended up with almost no coverage whatsoever.

However ever since applying it with my Morphe e54 brush I've fallen in love with it! It gives the most natural finish and a "your skin but better" feel and it is definitely buildable. The only downside is that it's on the matte side so you …

I've watched various videos on YouTube comparing this to the BB and most of the reviewers were pleased with this product, so I thought I would give it a try.

This is an excellent product. I didn't have much of an issue with it absorbing too much foundation since I dotted the foundation on my face using my fingers first then applied it using the sponge.

It gives me …

Unfortunately I had to throw this out. It by far provided the best coverage out there compared to all BB creams, but it broke me out like crazy! The annoying thing is that it's made for acne-prone skin so it should NOT irritate acne-prone skin! I wish they could reformulate it because the coverage is absolutely amazing. But until then - it belongs to the trash can.

I think I finally found my favorite BB cream. It blends on quite nicely and does a good job covering my blemishes. I would best describe it as providing light to medium coverage. More importantly, it doesn't break me out which is quite rare for any cosmetic product!

The reasons I've taken off one lippie are:

- The shade selection is limited - I'm currently …

I had to return this after trying on three different shades. Each of the three oxidized on my skin and looked too cakey although I used moisturizer underneath. Moreover, after finally getting rid of horrible cystic acne last year, this product created two huge cysts on my face.

I would not recommend this product at all to anyone who's acne prone - I found out that one of its key …
