My Thoughts:   I think this has to be the absolute worst foundation I have ever tried.  You know how middle of the road I try to be about things I'm not a fan of.  Really.  I try.  If I'm not a fan I'll usually be all "this didn't work for me, because of xyz, but it might work for abc.... blah blah blah."  I can't see this being a good foundation for anyone really.  Unless you already have perfect skin that doesn't even need foundation.

How do I dislike this foundation?  Oh, let me count the ways.

1.  It smells.  Very chemical, and it's pungent.  Like an old plastic bottle that's been left in the sun.
2.  It has no coverage.  It spits out in a weird foam that fizzles a bit on your skin or palette or whatever, and when you try to blend it onto the skin it streaks and then fades away, clinging only to your imperfections.
3.  It clings to your imperfections.  Got pores?  Now everyone knows it.  Got dry patches, flakiness, or uneven texture?  Highlighted!
4.  It's hard to gauge the color to match your skin.  There's no universal color system, so even though I know what shade I am in the Revlon Colorstay, it means jack when trying to pick the right shade in this formula.  And the label on the bottle?  Not much help. I like to see the actual product to compare.  This was ashy and pale on me, and way too pink.

Final Verdict:  I was super annoyed when I tried this.  No application methods yielded positive results, and I was so happy when Ulta said they'd return it for me.  I exchanged it out for the Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation instead and was so much happier.  Major dud!
