The combination of raw materials and the best siliconic elastomers and siliconic esters provide 24-hour wear with transfer resistance.

My skin is very oily and when it comes to foundations I can be very picky, but this one is perfect, it gives you a great coverage and you don't need to apply a lot to the skin. It lasts all night long! It is perfect for acne prone skin since it gives you a great coverage without having to apply many layers of it.

I am so incredibly glad I gave this foundation a shot when I was shopping at Sephora. I now recommend and swear by it. It goes on so well and the coverage is phenomenal. I love that it doesn't cake or cling to drier spots on my face or settle in to fine lines and exaggerate pores.

I just bought this foundation at sephora, although all the ladies working said it would not work for red and oily skin types (which is what I have).
I brought it home, applied a primer and this foundation is 100% fill coverage. It covers all imperfections, without having to color correct!

Amazing coverage and very long lasting. Doesn't budge once its set. Very bendable but picks up on dry spots. Makes pores and fine lines look horrible if not used with a primer or set/baked in creases. BUT its really good for the price considering one bottle lasts several months.

This foundation is the most full coverage I have ever used!! It's a bit hard to blend at first but if you add an oil with it it'll blend nicely. You don't even need concealer with this foundation because that's how full coverage it is and it's only $38 at sephora!!! 10/10 product

Worst foundation I've ever used.
I was super excited to try this out when I bought it, and was a huge let down

It was so dry, and cakey. Did not blend well at all and showed every single pore on my face.
I tried mixing it with moisturizers, using different application techniques

Although it matched my pale skin very nicely

I like this foundation a lot because true to its name, it stays on through a lot! The only reason I’m giving it a 4 Star is because I have mildly dry skin and it caked on me pretty badly. Once I added serum to it, it worked a little better but I would have liked to use it alone.

My skin is combination with fine lines and redness. I have occasional stress induced break outs. This product is SO heavy I could not wear it. Maybe I’m not as skilled at application but this did not work for me at all. It appeared cakey and highlighted all my skin imperfections.

I hesitated to try this for so long because I heard so many people say that it was heavy, thick, or cakey.
Finally I gave in and I'm so glad I did.
The foundation was not at all thick like I thought it'd be and I found when I blend it out with a firmer damp sponge it's not heavy or cake-y at all and the coverage is amazing yet felt so lightweight on my skin and I'm obsessed with this foundation now.
I'm combo skin (oily/dry) and this kept me matte and also didn't cling to my dry areas and yes I primed as I normally would and set it.

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?

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?
