  • "Amazing coverage and does stay on a lot, it lasts quite a long time however there aren't a good range of tones and it leaves your skin feeling quite dry, if you have normal or oily skin then this is a good foundation, do not use if you have dry skin or if you like natural looking foundations, this one is very obvious and thick coated." in 68 reviews

I love this product. I always keep some on hand for those days I need extra coverage. It's much to full of a coverage for summer wear for myself so I tend to mainly use it for fall and winter. It can feel drying at times with my sensitive skin but a good quality moisturizer always helps along with a dampened beauty blender. I love the matte look I get with this foundation and how easy it is to apply. I also highly recommend this foundation to anyone looking for full coverage, matte finish, and a foundation that doesn't get that orange tint to it. And lastly, because of the thick consistency, a little bit goes a long ways!

This has great coverage esp for a drugstore foundation! I don’t even need a concealer with this ! Avoid if you have dry skin as its super matte! Also drys fast so have to work quick! Has a mousey texture to it which I love! Blends easily! Don’t cake or go into fine lines :) have found if i use concealer over this on super full coverage days it tends to cake with any concealer I decide to use so recommend using underneath! Can’t believe for such a good coverage foundation the price is so cheap! Really do recommend if in need of a matte foundation and don’t want to splurge!

This foundation is average. It has good coverage and is pretty good for oily skin wouldn't recommend for dry skin as it can feel quite dry. I find that it can become quite cakey and i and not a huge fan of the way it looks on the skin. It also has quite a pink undertone which doesn't work for my skin as it's more of a yellow/olive undertone

The application is smooth but takes some work, a damp beauty sponge is my preferred technique. For oily skin it's a dream but when I have a dry patch it seems to cling unless I mix in some kind of serum or oil. It's mousse like texture feels light weight but isn't brilliant for building on. For a drug store foundation I'd recommend, its true to swatches and doesn't oxidise through the day. It's not expensive so why not give it a go. If you're looking for super full coverage flawless foundation maybe look elsewhere, but done knock it til you try it.

I've been using high-end foundations and concealers from Bobbi Brown and MAC for years, but nothing compares to this! You get full coverage without it being too heavy, it blends so well with a makeup sponge and really covers all blemishes and under-eye bags! It keeps my skin matte without drying it out but can be made to look a bit more dewy depending on the primer you use! It has great staying power and a decent range of shades! I have absolutely nothing bad to say about this! It also looks great for those who do stage makeup :)

It has a dense, ointment-like consistency. It is not difficult to spread, because when it comes in contact with the skin of the face it changes a little its consistency and luckily it can be spread well.The coverage is average, quite good. The only counter that I have for this base is that in the driest areas mark as scam, bone must have the whole face well moisturized and moisturized before using it, and in the drier areas have to be extra careful when we spread. I assume then that it should also mark the lines of expression.

Comence a utilizar algunas bases que no me prestaban porque soy de piel grasa y luego de una o dos horas comenzaba a derretirme, ENSERIO A DERRETIRME ! la piel se me ponia super grasosa , con mucho brillo , no podia moverme mucho ni hacer algo que me hiciera sudar. Compre este Mate Liquid Mousse en una farmacia local y la verdad solo la compre porque decia "Mate" mas no esperaba que fuese tan bueno , puedo ir a una presentacion y no tengo necesidad de retorcarme entre cada funcion. el maquillaje se queda intacto.

Review for: 010 Light Porcelain more...
It's not my favorite foundation but it's not bad either, especially considering how affordable it is. I have oily skin and I find that the formulation works fine for me, but my biggest issue is that none of the shades seems to match my skin just right, the lightest shade is light porcelain, it just runs a bit too pink/greyish for me so I usually have to end up mixing it with another product to make it work. Unfortunately for that reason I won't repurchase but if there was a good color match for me I would!

Review for: 091 Light Ivory more...
I am quite conflicted with this product. The foundation is a great colour, it matches my skintone EXACTLY, however I cannot wear it during the hot months of the year. It feels super heavy during the summer and it feels as if my face is melting off, which is why I prefer to use it as my go-to winter foundation. It is super creamy and blendable, and because it is quite thick I often mix it with either a more liquid foundation or a moisturiser, which gives it a thinner consistency and a lighter texture and feel.

I don't really like this foundation, but it does control oils.
First the color selection is really bad. I'm in the shade ivory , and this is a pink tone foundation, although you can't really tell by the picture I uploaded. I can only pull it off when I'm more tanned, because in the winter the pink tone looks horrible on me and during the day it oxidizes a little so by the end of the day my skin tone will look completely different from the rest of my body.
This is a really thick and medium/high coverage foundation. I like a high coverage foundation, but this one just looks like you put a tone of product on your face and you didn't know how to blended it.... I think it doesn't give you a beautiful and natural finish that I would like in a foundation. The only way I can accomplish this kind of look is with a beauty blender, but It won't be perfect. If you have oily skin, you probably have large pores, and this foundation will emphasize that, you will need a good primer first. I've extremely oily skin, and it controls my oils for about 3 hours, after that it starts to sit on my pores, by the end of maybe 6h the foundation is ready to slide off my face... so I really have to blot a lot to make sure it keeps looking good for more than 6h. I find than most people that says that they're oily aren't really as oily as me... that's why I still think that this foundation is one of the best drugstore foundations to help control oils. Overall I would suggest the cover girl 3 in 1 , same control oil time but it looks much better on the skin.
