Long wearing, soft luminous finish is right! I love this foundation because you get the most beautiful velvety finish.  I absolutely love this product and don't mind using extra to get the full cover finish I want.  While people like to promote this as a full coverage foundation it is definitely a medium.  This product has a thin formulation and never looks cakey or thick on your skin.  You could probably put the entire bottle on your face and it would never look thick or heavy on the skin.  It does not feel like you have a mask on your face either.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

I didn't think my combo skin would like this.....but this foundation gives that natural glow..that light from within that people do a double take when they see your face.

surprisingly, the glow never looks oily on my skin, and just makes me skin look fresh.

the only downfall? the coverage is light, and if I try to build this up...then it looks oily and messy. so for light, summer foundation days I think this is great...when you need heavy duty coverage, you cannot build this up without looking like a disco ball mess!

Just okay. I bought this because Mario Dedivanovic (makeup by Mario) recommended and used. I used a primer and setting spray but it still ended up patchy as the day progressed. The consistency was nice though. I would not recommend.

I’ve used drugstore products for the younger starter years of my makeup life but once I switched to high end brands, this is the first thing I found. The creamy out of this foundation literally sinks into your skin and gives you such great coverage. I’ve gotten so many compliments about this.

I think there's something in my skin care routine that causes a lot of foundations to separate on my skin. And my skin is crazy sensitive so a lot of products give me itchy hives. This does neither of those things and gives me the glowly finish I like. Already on my second bottle.

This is a very nice foundation and has pretty decent mesium coverage. It can lean a bit lighter coverage. It is better for dryer skin but will will okay on oilly. It gives off a nice glow but it isn't my favorite. I will use it though until it is finished.

My skin is acne prone and has dry patches. I would not recommend it for my skin types the foundation clung to my dry skin and looked really caked after trying to build the foundation to cover acne. Easily comes off the face and needs to be set for sure!

I really like this formula as it’s light and is long wearing. It doesn’t sit in creases, break me out, or get oily. The only dislike would be that there is no spf which I do prefer to have in my products.

So this product really gives a natural glowy finish. I really liked it when I tried it. It stayed on well and it really looked pretty on my face. Though it really didnt suit my needs, but it was nice.

does exactly what it describes, gives you that candlelight glow. Moisturizng, and very beautiful. Blends easily and has a good medium coverage but I have found it to be buildable. But really once is enough. This is my go to foundation that I always repurchase and I have tried many different kinds for my dry skin and this works so well!
