This is my holy grail foundation! I have a medium complexion with very yellow undertones. I sampled many shades of this foundation before I purchased the color Y375. I have ALWAYS had an issue finding a foundation that's the right shade for me and one that has a strong yellow undertone. I definitely recommend not only getting matched in Sephora for your shade but asking for a sample. Originally I was matched to a shade that seemed to match but throughout the day made my face very red looking (Y415). I ended up emailing Makeup Forever asking for a lighter more yellow shade and they recommended Y375 which was my perfect shade.

I love this foundation because the color matches me perfectly and it makes my skin look flawless on stage and off stage. I have very dry skin and this foundation has never clung to any dryness on my skin. It holds up fabously throughout winter and summer months when I'm sweating buckets or flaking. Another reason I love this foundation is because it looks great in photos and on stage! I do a lot of theatre and this foundation holds up during all my performances and stays on beautifully under the harsh stage lights. In my experiences it hasn't transferred onto any clothing items. I use this foundation with a beauty blender and it's definitely a buildable foundation. I definitely recommend this foundation and if you're unsure about buying it get a sample at a Sephora near you! Originally I was tied between this foundation and Born This Way but the Ultra Hd won my heart! ...read more

After searching high and low for this product, I FINALLY found it at my local CVS and I am in LOVE! I think it's a fantastic product. My skin tends to be very dry in the winter and then I get somewhat combo during the summer months. This gives me a very nice glow to my skin that doesn't make me look over oily. Now, I would NOT recommend this to anybody with oily skin (for obvious reasons!). However, the glow hits me in all the right spots and I have a nice healthy glow to my skin. The foundation is rather liquidity - so be sure to give it a good shake before applying. I find a little goes a long way. I like a light look during the week and during the weekend, I'll kick it up a few notches. The only con is matching colors. I have a few L'Oreal foundation products at home but they don't seem to line up perfectly with all the other lines. The shade I purchased is perfect for me to use during the summer months while I have a bit of a tan. I'm hoping come winter, it's a lot easier to find these foundations so I can get a shade lighter! Another downfall would be, if you are a person who like to wear a lot of foundation, I could see you running out to get this every month or so. Not a lot of product, but worth the price. The price is about $13, which is not too terrible. I had a few coupons from CVS, so I was able to purchase from there for a few bucks off. This is definitely one of my "summer go-to's" now. ...read more

This is my winter holy grail foundation! I have very dry skin, this foundation is so hydrating that it doesnt feel like anything on my skin. I use brush to apply this so i can get a fuller coverage. I can layer this multiple times, and it doesnt get cakey at all. It gives such a luminous and natural finish, that it doesnt even look like you have anything on. However, the only reason why this is only my winter holy grail is because their shade range. I use the darkest shade they have available, which is a perfect match for my winter skintone, but way too light for summer. I have medium skin with yellow undertone. ...read more

One of my holy grail products! It's a foundation I can never go without having in collection. It's a reliable foundation that gives a light to buildable-medium coverage that still manages to look like skin. It also provides a little more hydration than your traditional foundation, which is great for those with dry skin or during those winter months. Although it doesn't provide extreme coverage as you'd expect in a typical foundation, it does however even out your skin tone perfectly. It's a product that I would choose over a BB cream any day and is an absolutely amazing product. Note that because it's not like your traditional foundation, don't apply it as you would with a beautyblender or a brush since its thin watery consistency causes it to be easily soaked up. It's best applied using your fingertips to rub the foundation into the skin until you can feel a little resistance. This resistance from rubbing is an indication the foundation has set, and it leaves an absolutely gorgeous finish without a doubt. ...read more
