Review for: 71 Deep - Warm Undertone more...
I was Pretty hesitant when buying this foundation. It is definitely 100% full coverage so a tiny bit goes an extremely long way. I can use half a pump and it lasts me all day. I’m not sure yet if I would buy it again because it feels kind of cakey, maybe that’s because it’s full coverage though.
I have heard that the color I got is different in formula then the other colors. I got light 41 neutral. This foundation was so thick and hard to blend when I finally got it all blended out it looked extremely cakey on my face and I have oily skin. I haven't tried this in a different color because it's quite pricey to begin withm.
This product was just not for me. I tend to fall more on the dry side skin wise, and this flakes off horribly through the day. Application was patchy from the get go, but looked downright abysmal after a few hours. It’s so heavy it reminds me of stage makeup I wore in high school theatre productions.
This foundation is full coverage and has a great finish. Don't use it over dry skin and it is tricky to find a primer that will go well under it without pilling. It lasts all day but I would recommend using a setting spray with it.
Review for: Medium 58 Neutral more...
I have been using this foundation for over a year! It can look a little cakey so I prefer to mix it with something. It definitely has a matte finish, but I am SUPER oily so after a few hours I have to reapply powder. One of the best for oily skin and full coverage, but can look a little heavy!
It’s hard to find a foundation that is light enough for my skin, without turning me pink, so this is a god send! It’s goes on smooth, has incredible coverage, and a nice matte finish. It has a velvety texture, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated (which is rare for a matte foundation!). I would definitely recommend, and will certainly buy again.

very full coverage and very heavy! this is deff for the full face girl that loves her makeup to look impeccable. I wear this for dinner dates and nights out and it stays for hours covers all my blemishes and looks flawless on camera. if you like a full coverage foundation you would love this
Not a fan because one, it's very thick! It's hard to spread evenly on the face so you may want to spritz your brush with Mac Fix plus or something. If you are using a beauty blender, this may help with the application. I just find it too heavy on my skin but the coverage is amazing though :)
Review for: 44 LIGHT - COOL UNDERTONE more...
This foundation is perfect for anyone with oily skin and if you're trying to find one that will REALLY match your skin I suggest this one highly. It is easy to blend into the skin (I use a damp beauty blender to do this) and it has a really nice finish. It is definitely worth the price!
Q & A
What is the best way to apply? fingers? brush? beauty blender?
Okay, I've been eyeing this for a while but I just don't want to buy a high end foundation again and be as disappointed as I was with the Too Faced Born This Way 😩 I have oily, acne prone, combination skin with a super dry nose. I have a lot of redness from acne and so on and I want something that covers it all instantly! I want something that stays matte all day, with or without primer, and doesn't melt off no matter the weather. I am super light (like ghost light) as well with a yellow undertone and wonder if they have any good shades. Does it oxidize? Does it wear off around the nose? Can you apply it both with a Beauty Blender and a brush? Would you say this is a foundation for me?
Does this foundation come on very thick?
I have Rosacea, would this be able to cover up my rosy red cheeks?
I really want to give this foundation a try and I have been hearing mixed reviews. Is this product worth the money or should I try something different?
