PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "Now, once you get the product out, it has great coverage and feels very light on your skin (It doesn't feel cakey) but I found it made my face break out pretty bad once I started using it." in 15 reviews
  • "I loved this foundation at first & gave me good coverage but then I started to realized that started to make my face look pink." in 13 reviews
  • "At first, I was really skeptical about this foundation because it is very thick - to the point where it doesn't come out of the bottle, you have to take a q-tip, end of your brush, or a small makeup spatula to get it out." in 12 reviews
  • "surprisingly good product, but it leaves my face a little orange even though i believe i have it in the lightest shade. " in 11 reviews
  • "It provides light to medium coverage, didn't feel to thick or cakey, worked perfect on my dry skin, the only reason I stopped buying it was because the packaging is horrible, its such a pain to get out of the glass tube once you use about half the bottle, you have to begin scooping product out, because this is not really a liquid foundation its more of a cream, but overall it was a good product just bad packaging." in 10 reviews

I've been using this product for YEARS and I'm so sad they discontinued it (or at least, stopped restocking in my area). They changed their formula over the years so honestly sometimes it was a hit or a miss depending on which I ended up with. The original formula in classic beige was a PERFECT match for my skin and provided really pretty medium coverage (my skin looked even and looked like skin, but still allowed freckles to peek out) when applied with a sponge. The second formulation was horrible, oxidized like crazy. I purchased in the same color and it made me orange. Wish I had a couple extra bottles of the original :(

I have found that some products from NYC are kind of hit or miss. This one is a hit in my book but it does oxidize a little once it sets. The price couldn't get any better if you wanted it too. I have been buying this foundation for years and will continue to do so.

Light and airy. It doesn’t cause any breakouts or issues with my sensitive skin. I have combination skin and it works well. It’s very easy to apply, and blend. I will definitely continue to purchase this product.

I'm not a fan of this foundation! The bottle says smooth skin and blendable but it seems far from it for me. It feels funny while being applied, just kind of smears and "dries" super fast before I can get it blended. I always apply with a brush with no issues but this foundation which leaves brush strokes. While it dries quick, it doesn't soak in well and just sits on the skin with a wet feeling. It's not heavy, just not smooth.

One of my favorite foundations. It has very good coverage and is very dewy. It looks like real skin. They no longer sell it where i live though so it’s kind of upsetting

I bought this product while in California since I ran out of my normal foundation and had a funeral to attend next day. I loved it at first but after using it for a bit I did notice it would give off an orangish tint which I completely freaked over when on the way to a car show. I also would have to apply with my brush and smear it to cover my face let it sit and then go back over again because it's so liquid creamy. It would still be a bit blotchy if I didn't use my beauty blender and spot cover also. It's good for every day being as it's cheaper to buy but for occasions I need good quality I'll stick to NARS or Kat.

This was really cheap, and I like cheap things. Although what really sucks was that this foundation was so patchy and would literally fall apart using a sponge. I nearly stopped using it for a while until I had too, especially using concealer on top of the foundation it just took a patch away from where I tried to put the concealer, you cant blend anything in and it would literally take a patch of the foundation off. The spatula did not make it any better. Although if you're not going to wear any concealer or contour and you use a brush. I used a kabuki brush once and it turned out fine. Although it's a pass for me.

I used to get this foundation all the time. It was easy to access and not very expensive. I always had trouble getting it ut of the bottle though. it covered fairly well for being the first foundation I used but then it stated making my acne worse. I would not purchase it again.

Okay so not going to lie NYC is not my go to brand for foundation or anything that is made to coverup.because it's such a cheap company they don't have a foundation that fits my skin tone because I'm so pale also I know women who are brown and they have like not even a sense of a range of shades for anybody except for people who aren't super pale and aren't super dark
