This is, without a doubt, the best foundation I have ever used and I've used a lot! I use NC15 and it is perfect for my pale completion. Whenever I wear this foundation I get so many compliments on how lovely my skin is. Not how good my foundation is. It just blurs all imperfections and makes it look like you have natural perfect skin. I have an oily nose but this foundation keeps the oil under control. I have mild rosacea on my jaw and this covers it nicely but it does fade slightly by the end of the day from when I touch my face. I work between 8-12 hours a day and by the end of my working day, my foundation still looks great. If I set my whole face with powder it has a matte finish but I can get away with just setting my under eyes and leave the rest of my face as is for a lovely demi-matte finish. You can't beat the quality for the same price. I've gone through so many bottles of it and will continue to repurchase it for as long as it is in production!

If you have very dry skin this product is definitely the one for you. It does not settle into dry patches and it stays on all day. It gives a flawless look on your skin and it looks like skin not just makeup caked on your face. A great everyday foundation. I would not recommend for dry skin though. As you can see in the photo that’s how the foundation wears on my skin. It’s my go to and I have already purchased two of these so far in the past year which is very rare to me

Review for: NC25 more...
This foundation is a bit too cakey, matte, and dry for my dry skin. So why the 4 stars? It is because I don't use this product alone.

I heard from NikkieTutorials from Youtube years ago that she uses MAC Face and Body Foundation mixed with this foundation and at the time my Face and Body I had purchased was a little too olive for me (I got C3). So I thought to myself why not try it out (I'm usually a NC30 but got an NC25 to help even out the olive tone in the face and body color I purchased). Let me tell you, the results are amazing! You get the full coverage with the dewy skin look that looks natural you will definitely get compliments (I know I do). On top of that, I don't get dry patches and I can add more studio sculpt for more coverage or more face and body for a lighter coverage. 

Both these foundations are a match made in heaven and I highly recommend if you are having trouble like me. 

- Make sure to SHAKE very well, this foundation separates more than not.

There is definetely room to grow with this product which is why I give it 4 stars. The coverage is good. However I am 44 so the thickness of the product tends to settle in fine lines. At this point I use the mac fix spray and foundation brush stroking UP! UP! UP! If well hydrated this tends to do the trick. When I am finished with this tube I will continue on my search for the perfect foundation with a different product.

I love this foundation. I usually have good experiences with foundations- but I almost always experience it fading throughout the day/ not staying full coverage, or it doesn’t blend well with other formulas. Not with this one! This is medium to full coverage. It covers everything almost fully which works for a great base! I have oily and dry skin so the gel form that it is in is fabulous. And a tiny bit covers my entire face! It lasts all day, my contour doesn’t fade and it keeps my skin looking amazing and dewy! This foundation rarely has to be set with powder either. I haven’t experienced any transfer to any clothes

This foundation was awful. As soon as I started applying it to my face, I noticed that it was super wet.. and the wetness wouldn’t go away. It felt like it would never dry. Well, it didn’t dry, ever. I just had a sticky, wet foundation mess on my face even though I applied only a thin layer. The coverage was good, but it was just gross feeling and felt even worse throughout the day since my face is oily. I touched my face later in the day and it all came off on my finger and it left a finger print on my face. I would not recommend this to anyone.

Used this foundation for years, but I didn't notice until makeup evolved and how the industry put out more products how dry this was in comparison to other things I tried. It definitely made my face feel tighter and I'd like that, until I checked and it was seeping into all my fine lines and making me look worse. I don't believe it took well to the buildable option.

I have tried almost every foundation on the market and I always come back to this one. It looks so smooth while it’s on and applies easily. I like a full coverage and this is super buildable. A little goes a long way which usually isn’t the case if you want full coverage. I’ll definitely be sticking with this foundation!

I’ve been using this foundation for years and i think it’s great but there’s room for improvement with the formula. When i wear this all day it smudges and it doesn’t sit well on my skin that tends to get oily but overall i do love that it’s super lightweight and buildable to get a full coverage look without being heavy.

I use NC35. It is a little darker than my skin tone and one shade darker than they recommend in the store but I use this year round. It is easy to apply. It is a little thick compared to most foundation but spreads easily. I love the flawless look it gives my skin. People compliment my skin sometimes when I wear this

Would this be a good foundation for dry skin? Like, my skin kinda flakes throughout the day. Would I need a primer with this foundation, or not? I tried it on in the store but didn't buy...
