I had wanted to try this foundation for a very long time I'm so glad I finally did. It has buildable coverage it last me for over 18 hours it isn't to light or to heavy juts right I will definitely purchase this again and would highly recommend this for anyone with oily skin! Oily skin women don't be scared when you first apply cause it's a demi matte all you have to do is put on your best setting powder and this stuff is magical!

I first heard about this product from BuzzFeed and I thought I'd try it out and I'm so glad I did. It smoothed out any fine lines that I had and it had great coverage. I liked it but it didn't last all day, it doesn't flake or rub off but it does fade gradually throughout the day

This foundation did not impress me. I bought it when it first came out and I tried it for two weeks straight. I didn't see any magic I use it on light no makeup makeup days.

I have just recently switched to this foundation (shade 2) and am absolutely in love! it covers everything and feels so smooth and luxurious yet very lightweight. For such a light feel i was shocked that it lasted so long. This is my new go-to and i can see myself using it from now on

This was something that I'd heard so many good reviews on that I expected it to be actual magic. Just for reference, I have fair skin with peach undertones, tends toward dryness. This foundation sits strangely on my skin - it's velvety to the point of being hard to blend. I honestly wonder if I still need to figure out how to best apply it for my skin - I use a damp beauty blender, because I think this would be beautiful if I could get it to set and sit correctly on my face.
Ultimately, I give it a B+/A-.

Personally, I really like this foundation. Yes, it's on the pricer side, but it is weightless and feels smooth to the touch. When I wear this foundation, I don't even feel like I'm wearing foundation. Also for me, there is this one shade that blends in PERFECTLY with my skin - I've never found a foundation that matches as well as this. Try it out (in select) Nordstrom so you don't end up buying a product that you dont like.

I love this foundation so much! I initially bought this to cover up acne scars after seeing how they applied it on the Charlotte Tilbury website on somebody who had a lot of skin redness and active acne. To start off, my skin is dry and sensitive and acne prone due to hormonal reasons. I often get a bad breakout once a month the week prior to my period and it takes a while to heal in the sense that it leaves dark marks EVERY time so I needed something that would cover that up.

What a pleasant surprise to find out how lightweight this foundation is! It literally does not feel like I'm wearing anything on my face and there is very minimal transfer. It IS a bit pricey, but it's definitely worth it. I initially was only going to use this foundation during special occasions but I find myself reaching for it all the time.

Now if you have dry flakey skin like I do, moisturize well and use a facial scrub once a week to avoid the flakes. I use a damp beauty blender to apply it and what I also like to do is mix one and a half pump of the foundation with one drop of the Pura D Or pure Argan Oil. THIS is my all time favorite combination recently. The foundation lasts me 8-12 hours with no touch ups needed!

If you have dry skin and are in need of a new foundation I'd say give this one a try!! Although it is on the pricey side it worked like magic for me. Smooth to the skin and it doesn't look cakey at all!

This foundation is beautiful. I absolutely love the way it blends out and doesn't sink into my fine lines (i am 33) I find that I don't have to set it unless I'm going to be home 12+hrs. Would recommend for dry and oily skin tho with oily skin you would want to set it.

I've used this foundation on and off for about 8 months now. I purchased shade 10 which is closest to my skin tone but I do find it to be a little on the red side. It's definitely matte, full coverage and only a single pump is needed. I find the best way to apply it is with a very compact duo-fiber brush. I have oily skin so it's it's important for me to use a primer and setting powder in order to get the longest wear possible. Overall, it's a decent foundation and I feel the price is on par with other prestige brands.

What's the coverage of this like? I think I've found my shade and I want to give it a try but I need medium-full coverage.

I have been looking for a full coverage foundation that lasts all day (I have combo skin and melasma) Double wear just does not have the undertone for me - would this be a good alternative?

Is this coverage any better than clinique products? If so, how? Does it cover acne well?
