I always wanted to try this foundation and on the Koh Gen do website they had an offer where I can send away for samples or $ 6 dollars. When I got my sample pack I selected light pack. This actually gave me 12 sample packs, two in each color. Each package gave me enough foundation for two light coats. I was always told they have a poor shade range not if you have light neutral skin. If you have light neutral skin they have everything! I went through all the shades and all of them were close enough for me to wear because I love the foundation so much. It has a high medium coverage and is very dewey. It’s smoots over pores, doesn’t settle into fine lines, and most of all is actually long wearing! Some other foundations this is like yet better would be Armani luminous silk, make up for ever HD foundation, Dior air flash, Givenchy photo phexion spf 20. This foundation also has an SPF of 15. I did not notice any photo flashback. They also make a compact with the exact same formula! I have been dreaming of finding a foundation I like that also has a compact on my color and now I finally do! If you buy the foundation and the compact at the same time on Koh Gen do’s website you get a20% discount! If you want to try this go for the sample pack I promise that six dollars will be the best money you’ve ever spent!

Pretty good. I have been looking for an everyday foundation that doesn't look too heavy, is long lasting, and is nourishing to my skin. I think I finally found it in this. Coverage is light to medium, which is great for evening out discolorations, gives a luminous glow to the face, and with a good primer, has lasted up to 10 hours. I do have oily skin though, so I have to be careful to apply a proper primer and set it with a matte setting powder to keep the shine down. Most non matte foundations turn my face into an oil slick within 4 hours... this one hasn't. The only negative thing I have to say about this foundation is the shade selection is very weak, catering to light to medium (light) shades.

Holy grail. This is the most amazing foundation I have ever used. The finish is beautiful and natural, buildable medium coverage, and just radiant without being wet. My big complaint is shade range. I am very fair and neutral (Porcelain in both Tarte and Bobbi Brown foundations), and they have only cool toned fair shades. 002 was my closest match, 012 was just way too pink even though I do feel it was lighter. This lasts me a 10 hour day easily, products blend well on top. If you’re oily I’d set with powder— this is def good for all skin types. 100% recommend if you can find your shade (they sell sample packs that will save your life), it is pricey but comparable to other high end brands, minus the fragrance and various  ingredients luxe brands feel the need to add (why??????).

I own this foundation in the shade 123 (perfect for MAC shades NC 20/25). It provides sheer to medium coverage depending on how you apply it. It makes your skin look healthy and provides a natural glow without looking overly dewy. If you have oily skin, you may want to use a matte primer, powder, and setting spray to prevent getting extra shiny. Combo and dry skinned girls will loved this. This lasts all day and tends to look better as the day wears on in my opinion. It feels light weight on the skin. The only con is the price, however, given the quality of the product, it's worth it to me! I have repurchased several times and recommend!

This is my holy grail product!! It doesn’t sink into my fine lines, it’s so natural. It’s medium coverage. The only thing I would say is that if your skin has a little bit of blemish then it won’t cover much. It’s also blendable and doesn’t oxidize, it’s also quite pricey but you can go on the koh gen do website and they let you buy samples, so you won’t have to splurge before you buy and waste money if you don’t like it.

I loved this foundation for a long time. Light coverage, moisturizing, easy to work with, stays all day. I preferred applying it with a beauty sponge over a brush because I prefer a more sheer coverage, but if you were inclined to build it up I think a second layer would give you medium coverage. It sets without a powder into a satin finish.

I finished a bottle of it, and I would be willing to buy it again after I work through a few other foundations I’ve accumulated!

It is an amazing foundation!! It has a light coverage so I use this as my everyday foundation. It is buildable and does not make my face look cakey. My skin is dry in the winter months so it is hydrating for my skin. When it get warmer I need to use a mattifying primer before and powder after. The only downside is that this foundation does not have a wide shade range.

I’d say this is my favorite foundation of all time. It is very easy to blend into the skin. Soaks into your pores. Looks very natural. You wouldn’t want it to sit on your skin. It is full coverage. I’d say this is best for dry skin because it is dewy. It is on the pricey side. But I do recommend this.

This is my go to every day foundation. Light to medium coverage , but buildable. Its a super liquidy foundation and It’s more of a natural finish. My only complaint is the color range... shades lean pink and I am neutral to slight yellow undertone

This was a really nice foundation. It went on smooth and evenly, was hydrating and didn’t leave my face feeling too tacky. Th only thing i don’t love tho is that it is such an expensive foundation to not be full coverage. I find that I’d rather invest in a better moisturizer and a less expensive foundation. If you like light-medium coverage I’d go with this, if you want more full coverage this is not the one for you.

I've seen so many you tubers rave about this foundation and its quality, but I've been on the fence because I believe this is a very high priced foundation. For those of you who have used it: was it worth it to you? Would you say that it's the best of the best?
