Review for: Classic Ivory
This foundation is THE BEST!!! I was looking for pretty full coverage without shine and without the thick feel of foundation... This one is great for covering uneven skin tone, for oily skin, and for those who don't want foundation settling into those fine lines around the eyes. After turning 35, my old makeup routine was just not working anymore - I just kept seeing the lines every time I'd smile and it was driving me nuts! This foundation is so good I will never go back to Clinique.
Review for: Golden Beige
This is the best drugstore foundation that I have tried !! It give you a very matte finish it's good for oily skin I have dry skin so I have to do a little bit more moisturizing which I don't mind but it definitely gives you that matte beauty skin (:
Review for: Fresh Beige
This foundation sorta worked for me. I have combination skin so on some days I’m really oily & some days I’m really dry. This foundation on works for me on the days that I’m really oily. It keeps my skin matte and is long wearing. It doesn’t work for me when my skin is dry, it tends to make my makeup looks cakey or patchy. So it really depends if your skin type.
Review for: Sun Beige
I actually like this product. This did not dry my face out so much, Gave me a complete look. Complete coverage and okay for oily skin. I do not recommend for dry skin, as this product is a heave foundation. If you want complete coverage go for it..

This is one of the best drugstore foundations I have ever tried! It is good quality for an affordable price. It really does provide a matte finish and medium to full coverage. It also has a great shade range. I will definitely be repurchasing again!
Review for: Sun Beige
I don't know why it took me so long to try this product but I guess the wait was rewarded. This for sure will be my daily favorite foundation. It's so light yet buildable at the same time. It does give you that perfect mat finish and it sets so well that I almost think I can skip the powder application for good. Great product so far, has not given me break outs or irritated my skin. Great for oily skin... I don't have to blot as frequently as I used to!! I'm so happy and it's SUPER affordable!!
Review for: Soft Sable
One of my favorite drug store foundations. Only think I'm not a fan is the color selections. Right now I have to mix two colors to get the right shade. Since its such s good matte foundation I don't mind doing that. Oily skin girls' best friend!
Review for: Natural Beige
It is one of the best bases I have ever tried. It is excellent for oily and mixed skin. I really like his matte finish. It lasts a lot on the skin. It is very easy to fade and has light consistency. Do not feel pasty or sticky on the skin. It has excellent coverage, cover all kinds of imperfections. I have bought it several times and will continue to buy it as it covers all my needs. It is an excellent foundation of makeup. And its price is also very economical compared to its good quality.
