I wore the Essence Soft Touch Mousse Foundation from 10.30am until around 11pm, which is just over 12 hours. At the end of the night, I was laying in bed taking selfies because I looked so great. I was really impressed. The sun was shining throughout the day, & I didn’t even need to touch my face up. Over the past few months, I have noticed that the area around my nose tends to need some touching up. This is not needed when I am using this foundation, which I love of course.

Very good color. Just wish it was not so dry after application. Very very matte so it's kind of a miss for me but they were spot on with color and it felt great going into my skin. Not very heavy.

Terrible. This product oxidizes very quickly. It left my face orange. It also is incredibly oily and smelled strange. I would not recommend despite its enticing price.

Im in love with this foundation, i feel it is magical trully and so so affordable, then why only 4 stars? Well they only carry 2 shades, really only 2. So i feel lile essence needs to give it more love and coms woth a decent range of colors. Aside from that
This foundation blends very well, it leaves a matte lile finish without drying the skin, and sets almost immediately. Of.you are lucky to be within the 2 shades i say buy it!!

I was surprised by this product. It blends pretty well with a stippling brush. I wouldn't use a flat cream foundation brush for it since it's got a thicker & airy texture. It really is a lot like hair mousse. The coverage was medium to full & can easily be built up or made sheer. I had trouble finding a shade. I ended up buying one darker than what I needed but I just use it for contour now & it works great in the hollows of my cheeks.

I really love this product. At first it was hard to blend but once I worked with it and figured out a little goes a long way it was great! I feel like it gives me great coverage, now it blends nice and I think I look amazing after I use it!

When I first bought it and tried it i was amazed!!! It will stay matte up to 12 hours and will not crease or melt but after using it for a while it started to get really oily and heavy and will crease everywhere!!!

I'm not a huge fan of this product. I feel that it oxidized unevenly and isn't flattering on any other skin type than normal. It does dry very matte. It also tranfers too easily for my taste especially being matte.
