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!

This has been my absolute favorite foundation for over a year.  It is extremely lightweight and somehow makes the skin look completely perfected.  What is even better is that you can make any foundation look better by mixing some of this into it.  I needed a long-wearing foundation recently when I went on vacation.  I solved the problem by mixing this with some Revlon ColorStay.  It looked absolutely beautiful and lasted all day!  The only downside is the color range.  I absolutely recommend this if you can find a shade that works for you.

This is one of the best foundations I've ever used. The coverage is light to medium but long-lasting, it looks like your skin but better. It has a beautiful radiant finish. A little bit goes a long way.  If you have dry skin you definitely need this foundation in your life. The price of this foundation is definitively worth in my opinion.

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.

This foundation is my HG of all time!! My skin is dry with redness and large pores around the nose. This foundation is a dream because it manages to cover up the redness and mask my pores, yet doesn't cling onto dry flakes and emphasize dryness. I have been using 213 because of my yellow undertone (also tried 113 which was too pink on me, and 123 which was too dark). If you are looking to try shades, I would go on the Koh Gen Do website and order samples to find the shade for you. It's not free, but it is definitely worth it to be able to try out the shades before committing to this high-end purchase. It doesn't last all day though even with Hourglass primer - after about 6 hours it starts to break up on my skin (even though my skin is dry, it does start to get oil which affects the foundation). I've repurchased at least 3 times and have just ordered more as backup.

This foundation was on my wish list for a long time and I regret not buying it sooner.  It works great on my dry skin.  It provides light to medium coverage with a skin like finish.  Your freckles still show thru which I like!  I love this for a good everyday foundation since you can touch up even on top of powder though I don't feel like I need to set this.  It wears very well and doesn't crease into smile lines.

My go to foundation for everything. Buildable, bendable, and versatile. The shade range for darker skinned women is small but I was able to find my shade within the colors. When I wear this foundation, I dont feel it on my face. It's so lightweight, that's what I love most about it. It also gives a very dewy, natural finish. I haven't used a setting spray for a dewy look in a while. I love this product!

This foundation gave me a lot of problems initially. I have dry skin and couldn't get it to look nice on my skin. It made my dry spots really predominant which I've never had a foundation do that this intensely. However, after trying different preps and primes I did get it to work and it did look nice but for the price it doesn't seem worth it. I could grab my Missha bb cream or Laura Mercier candleglow foundation and get much better results right off the bat.

Review for: 002 more...
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!

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?
