Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best foundation I’ve ever used This is literally the best formula I’ve ever seen in a foundation and I honestly have used so many high end foundations. I have oily, acne prone skin and this sits amazingly on my complexion. It covers, it feels light weight, it lasts and most importantly it leaves my skin so beautiful after wearing it almost all day. MUST HAVE, REALLY WORTH IT.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not long wearing I wish this would have worked for me, I’m happy I was able to get this in a travel size to try rather than buying a large bottle and realizing it did not work well for my skin. I was not impressed with the coverage, and it does not wear well on oily skin. I will not be repurchasing this foundation. ;(

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best!!! This is my favorite foundation of all time and I’ve tried many. It looks so natural on the skin but can be built up for more coverage without looking cakey. Love and highly recommend!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A learning curve I originally found this foundation to be splotchy but a friend recommended using the flat makeup brush instead of a beauty blender. I do a layer all over and add another layer to my trouble spots. Looks smooth but like skin. Love it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exceeds expectations I didn't think that this would cover enough as I'm a mature woman but did not want to cakey finish. It's very buildable and remains natural looking as if it melts into your skin. I would definitely wear this for a special occasion

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful texture!!! My very favorite face make up. So easy to apply and once you do, it appears that you are not wearing any makeup whatsoever. However, it still manages to even out your skin imperfections.
