This looked horrible on my skin. I couldn't even get through the day before taking it off. It was not good at all. Patchy, light to medium coverage and the shades seem to run way too yellow

Horrible coverage. It left my skin feeling grease. It has dewy finish to it. I broke out from it. I have combo skin and this didn't agree with me what so ever. Def a waste of money. Wouldn't recommended this at all!

Awful! I wanted a nice medium coverage dewy look, I mean my dry skinned self dreamed ! the foundation was so low on coverage that I could spot my redness under it! It was also horrible color match, but that could be my sephoras matching. It did last long I'll say, and was comfortable, but stood to none of its claims.

In search for a sheer, luminous foundation, I set out to try this Candleglow in four shades, I have very oily skin and this makeup was literally obliterated by the oil. After a blot sheet, it was gone. For such a pricey product, it sure breaks down easily. They have good shades, but this isn't even a five-hour foundation or light coverage. Thumbs down.

I am not a fan of this formula. I don't mind that's it's sheer. What I do mind is the way it emphasized my pores and dry patches. My skin looked awful after two coats. I was afraid to apply more because I was starting to look cakey on some areas. I have combo skin and after a few hours I was an oily mess. This was definitely not for me.
Sampled this foundation and hated the way it looked on my face, not much coverage whatsoever.

Review for: Butterscotch more...
This was a major disappointment
Sticks to any tiny bit of dryness or dry patches
Went on very patchy for some reason - I own about 40 foundations and I constantly test out new ones and this has only happened to me once before

Review for: Dusk more...
Was the perfect match for my skin tone, but not my skin type. It had no coverage, did not last throughout the day, and was overpriced for the quality.

I don’t really like his foundation. It was pretty light coverage and made me very luminous

This product is super pigmented for when first starting to prime the eyes and apply a shimmery eye shadow over it. My trick is to dab some tissue allowing the extra moisture from this product off, and almost giving it a matte finish and then allowing one to apply their choice of eye shadow .
