My Thoughts:  I'm pretty much in love with this foundation.  I never in a million years would have thought I'd say that about a drugstore brand of foundation, but this is truly an awesome product.  I started using this a few weeks ago, and it's almost replaced my prestige brands when I'm looking for a more full coverage foundation.  The wear-time on it is fantastic!  I apply it with a damp blender sponge, and it sets within about 60 seconds.  I top it with a light dusting of powder to set it, since it tends to dry to a somewhat "tacky" finish on my skin.  But it's very lightweight, and I can't feel the foundation on my skin.  It is more full coverage, but it doesn't look really heavy or thick on the surface.  You can tell you're wearing foundation, but it doesn't look caked on.  I can wear this all day, and it will still look fresh no matter how late I'm going to bed.  The tacky feeling on the skin might be little off-putting for some, but it does go away fairly quickly.

 

If you rub at it, it will leave a "blank" spot on the skin though.  I wore it all day the other day, and in the bathroom at the restaurant that night I itched my nose and suddenly I had a very visible naked spot.  I had to try to rub the surrounding area to blend it all away, but my nose did look a little red for a few minutes after.  This was after wearing it for at least 8 hours, and the rest of it still looked flawless.  It seems to stand up to heat, humidity, oil, and sweat fine, but friction can wear it off unevenly.


Final Verdict: The best drugstore foundation I've ever tried, and I'd highly recommend it to anyone looking for a long-wearing affordable option!

  1. Really.... Thank you for this review, I never would have expected this from a drugstore brand. I love it though because sometimes I don't want to spend that much more for a higher end foundation!
