So i have extremely extremely oily skin which goes really well with my acne prone and naturally red face. So, when I was looking for a new foundation I wanted something that would control my oil while also covering my acne and redness and also looking relatively natural. I stumbled upon this product in Sephora and tested it out there and I immediately fell in love with it. I must warn you though that it is a really heavy foundation so a little goes a long way. It does feel heavier than I would like it to be when wearing it but that is what happens when you go for a full coverage foundation. It takes a little practice to get used to applying this foundation too which even I am still struggling with. However, it covers incredibly well while also maintaining a pretty natural look. It managed to smooth my imperfections, mattify my face all day, and stay locked in. I don't mean to scare anyone off by exaggerating how heavy of a foundation it is because for those who are struggling to find the right foundation for skin like mine, I would definitely recommend this product. With the right primer and translucent powder (I use Too faced Peach matte primer and Laura mercier setting powder) the product goes on very well and stays on all day. I would also recommend using a foundation brush to apply it over a beauty blender because even with the use of a damp beauty blender it goes on heavy. The Sephora Beauty consultant used a foundation brush when I tested it out and I think that is a part of why it looked so much better in the store than at home with a damp beauty blender.

Review for MAKE UP FOR EVER STEP1 Skin Equalizer Primer - 4 months, 1 week ago
Review for: MAKE UP FOR EVER Step 1 Skin Equalizer (1 Mattifying Primer) more...
I have really mixed feelings about this primer so I am only giving it 3 stars. This product is a life saver when it comes to oily skin, you can literally feel the primer dry out your skin (in a good way). It also is relatively lightweight and maintains oil control throughout most of the day. One major thing you have to be careful with is applying the primer evenly because if you don't smooth it out completely, you WILL be able to notice. It is such an intensely mattifying product that without proper application it will cause your makeup to build up in areas even with the slightest amount of foundation. I also recommend using another hydrating primer with this because it can cause slight dry skin. I used the Too faced hangover primer with it and they paired pretty well together. However, I must reiterate that it has caused uneven application of my foundation and also doesn't necessarily lock the foundation in as much as I hoped it would.

Review for Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Review for: Hourglass Illusion Hyaluronic Skin Tint Ivory 1.0 oz more...
I went into Sephora to search for a new foundation that would be full coverage while also combatting oil which led me to this product. The Sephora staff highly recommended it and after they applied it I fell in love, but of course they always do such a better job at doing my makeup. So once I got home and started to use it regularly I began to notice some major downfalls of the product. First of all I was really disappointed that I just spent $55 on a foundation that turned out to be worse than many other cheaper foundations I have tried. Within a matter of hours after applying it, my face was oily again and by the end of the day the foundation began to separate on my face. Although I know now that my face lotion played a part in that, it still managed to basically fall apart on my face very easily. I would not recommend this to anyone with oily skin.

I am absolutely obsessed with this foundation. RiRi was not kidding around with her foundation. I have oily skin so when I search for a foundation the number one thing i look for is a matte finish which this product really delivered. I was able to go almost the full day without needing to blot my face. I also love the fact that the product dries so quickly after applying. The foundation does have some flaws in its ability to stay locked in all day but other than that it is pretty awesome. The one thing I would recommend with this product though is finding the right powder to go with it. I used Tarte's Amazonian Clay tinted pressed powder (also a matte finish) and it developed a chalky appearance on my face. I also recommend going in to the store to get your skin matched just to ensure that you get the perfect shade because there are so many options.

Review for tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
Review for: Light Beige more...
I have tried over 20 different foundations by now and the Tarte Amazonian Clay is by far one of my favorites. The foundation is extremely light even though it is full coverage while also managing to cover my acne prone skin. The main reason I am only giving it 3 stars is due to its false promise of oil control. I have extremely oily skin and have even paired it with some of the most mattifying primers you can find and it still did not really keep my face from becoming oily throughout the day. I still come back to this foundation from time to time though because it is a very good foundation if you are looking for a more natural look.

Review for Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer - 4 months, 2 weeks ago
I got a sample of this product and tested it out and I absolutely love the radiant look it gives but I am prone to extremely oily skin, which if you're in the same boat then this product isn't for you. It is incredibly smooth, doesn't feel heavy on your skin, and does a good job at blurring imperfections while also giving you a slight glow. My skin looked pretty flawless after applying my foundation and did a good job throughout the day with keeping my makeup in place. 
However, after just a couple of hours my skin was oily again.
