Having decided that my skin, now VERY mature, was no longer enjoying liquid foundations, I began the search for a comfortable and natural mineral powder foundation. After trying and rejecting several brands(trying samples of each) a board search took me to Idun, a Swedish brand that had very good reviews here. I ordered samples and was surprised by how much I liked how they looked and felt. I …Read more

I could not resist trying this, no matter how long the wait, as the price made it worth experimenting without much loss.
I have only been using this for a little over a week, although I ordered it two months before it arrived, so take everything I say being aware that I am a new user and who knows what might be the long term judgement. But as of now I am delighted with this foundation. It …

I'm still on the foundation safari, even at my advanced age. I am forever tempted, even though my thin and sensitive skin is now extremely picky. Having read great things about By Terry's foundations and their kindness to aging skin, some time ago I tried an on-sale tube of Sheer Expert, found it lovely, if slightly sheer, looked at Cover Expert, which was fine, but over too soon for …Read more

I am so darn old that I no longer not want to look as if I have flawless skin. Imperfections, some wrinkles and some sun spots are what I have earned, I do not want coverage that leaves me old-glamorous and perfect, but I do look for an undetectable foundation that has improved me to some degree.Older women who look untouched by time always seem to me to be advertising their make-up. You know …Read more

I may be the oldest living reader/reviewer, but I still am concerned about my skin, about sun protection and about looking as youthful as I can. And for that I have always turned to Chantecaille for makeup despite its horrendous prices, and recently switched to Asian skin care which is gentle and extremely hydrating. That said, the enthusiasm for this product here on MUA, plus the sun …Read more

I am surprised that I have not yet written a review of this foundation, which is the one foundation I count on, even though I keep checking other products out, thinking I must be missing something. Chantecaille is just in a class by itself, and so far, I have not found any foundation to equal it, or even to come close. Yes it comes in a pot, and yes it is a creme that you really have to …Read more

I have no business writing a review because I just purchased this today and have been wearing it for only seven hours. However, I think that, so far, it is terrific for someone who is of a certain age with dry skin who wants a glowy natural look. This evens out your skin tone, moisturizes and gives you sun protection. It is not a foundation, but I have reached an age where foundations scream …Read more

At my advanced age, well over seventy, you would think I was past looking for the ultimate foundation. No way. I received a sample of this from Sephora and was amazed by the coverage and at the same time the natural appearance and feel of the product. I just looked a hell of a lot better than usual, and by "usual" I do not mean barefaced; I mean wearing a tinted moisturizer or …Read more

I usually read reviews, never write them, but this product and this brand is excellent. I do not require either foundations or tinted moisturizers to cover much in the way of blemishes or damage--older skin looks so fake if it looks perfect. What this product does is give you better skin, not perfect, but so much better and still so natural. It is not easy to describe the effect, but your face …Read more

I just received this product yesterday so the review is premature, hence the 4 instead of 5 lippies. However, this is by far the best BB cream I have tried. I have the #2 beige, the "darker" choice that could be even darker, but I am so grateful for the SPF45, I can live happily with the very slightly light tone. It is not grey, and it does seem to adjust to your skin tone. The …Read more
