color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

the colour matched perfectly & didn’t oxidize, and the finish is luminous without being overtly dewy, which is great if you have oilier skin

- Sephora User

this product does not oxidize and blends like a dream

- Sephora User

layering

buildable

i have been using makeup forever for the last several years and this has taken over its so beautiful and you can build it up you can go light weight to full coverage i like it more with the sponge as i like a light to medium coverage and the brush gave me more of a medium to full coverage i went with the 140n and it was perfect it was so easy to pick out my shade i have never been able to do that on the first shot

- Sephora User

this is a lovely lightweight medium yet buildable foundation

- Ulta User

quality

good quality

this is a high-quality, go-to foundation, i would recommend to anyone looking for flawless coverage with minimal effort

- Ulta User

this price point is great and the product is super quality

- Sephora User

hydration

hydrating

with the weather changing my skin has been extremely dry, so i’ve been using the milk makeup hydro grip primer along with this foundation and my skin looks flawless

- Mira User

i love how it gives a glow to the finish and just looks so hydrating and lasted all day

- Ulta User

brightness

brightening

i was pleasantly surprised when i tried the luminous foundation from anastasia beverly hills that promises to be easy-to-blend and light-weight, and it actually is

- Ulta User

i love how natural and radiant this foundation is

- Sephora User

texture

smooth

this foundation completely smooths over skin imperfections and does not emphasize skin texture in any way

- Ulta User

i actually applied this without a primer, and it didn't accentuate any pores or wrinkles, it looks like it smoothed out my skin

- Ulta User

weight

lightweight

my favorite thing about this foundation is how light weight and natural it feels on your face

- Sephora User

it's got a great texture and i really enjoy how silky and lightweight it is

- Ulta User

staying power

longlasting

i actually forgot to wear a primer and this foundation lasted all day, in the awful heat, with my awkward sweating, through my nap and cpap straps and even without transferring

- Sephora User

the wear time is amazing as i go to a large university and i walk around in the heat all day and it stays put

- Sephora User

blendability

blends well

i get pretty decent coverage from one application, and medium coverage in two, but it stays light, and in combination with the anastasia beverly hills a30 domed kabuki brush, it blends smoothly and evenly

- Ulta User

it blends seamlessly into my skin, and is an absolute perfect match

- Ulta User

creasing

not creasing

it barely creases even after wearing it for 12 hours, gives you a radiant coverage and it’s incredibly lightweight

- Sephora User

it doesn’t settle in lines, or pores

- Sephora User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i used this with the nyx pore filler primer and they definitely worked well together

- Ulta User

in my opinion what separates this from pat mcgrath and almost every other foundation is that my skin looks poreless

- Ulta User

water resistance

water resistant

it's waterproof smudge proof and pretty much the most amazing foundation i have ever used

- Ulta User

it feels lightweight but is waterproof

- Sephora User

mattifying

mattifying

somehow this is mattifying and gives moisture and a good glow at the same time

- Sephora User

if you have oily skin, you probably need to use a mattifying primer and setting powder to lock it in

- Ulta User

finish

demi-matte

if you're looking for a luminous foundation with a dewy finish, this might not be your best option, but it is a great medium-full coverage long-wear option if you like a demi-matte finish

- Ulta User

the color matches perfectly and it’s blends out very nice and smoothly and leaves a semi matte/dewy finish

- Sephora User

coverage

medium coverage

has a great medium coverage that shows my freckles a bit if i choose but it builds so nice if you want full coverage

- Ulta User

i def feel this is a great foundation that stands out from the rest bc the finish is luminous yet gives light to med coverage (can be built to medium coverage with little effort)works well with a beauty blender or a brush i found brush gave me closer to med coverage with minimal effort and product used

Not a Paid Review

So I bought this with my own money, hence the unbiased review. I was really looking forward to trying it because there are so few luminous foundations available in the Western market, and the ingredients list looked clean and suited to my super reactive skin.First impression: No complaints about the packaging, nice glass container with a good pump. Sponsored Youtube reviews told me I'd only need 2 pumps because the product "goes a long way" but I found I needed four. I mostly use foundation to even out my skin and don't have any serious issues that need covering, but the texture of this foundation is really thick and doesn't spread very well. Right after application I noticed my face looked much more matte than I expected and was disappointed about the luminous claim.About an hour after application the foundation started to look dewier which I was happy about, but I noticed it was transferring like crazy. If you accidentally brush your face against anything, product will rub off. I wear glasses and in a couple hours' time you could see obvious streaks of bare skin where the glasses had lightly grazed the foundation. Despite the transferring the product did wear okay without breaking up for about 8-10 hours, but I definitely wouldn't call it long wear. It looked worn in by the end of the day, not fresh - more oily and tired looking.I removed the foundation with micellar water and cleansed, and my skin looked fine right after. The next morning thought I woke up with a handful of zits all over my face, and that's when I decided it was going back.If you want a similar finish to this foundation, look into Face Atelier's Ultra Foundation. It has a similar texture and finish, but the Ultra Foundation wears perfectly all day and retains the same luminous finish for hours without looking shiny. It's thick like the Anastasia foundation and similarly annoying to remove, but it's does what the Anastasia's supposed to do without transferring everywhere. Less

This product is my new ride or die foundation. It is great for dry skin. It leaves a natural finish with medium coverage. It does not feel heavy and leaves your skin glowing. Only con would be the price.

This foundation has been a LIFE CHANGER! With the weather changing my skin has been extremely dry, so I’ve been using the milk makeup hydro grip primer along with this foundation and my skin looks FLAWLESS! Really easy application, hydrating, glowy, buildable and lightweight. Absolutely no complaints so far :)

This foundation is so high coverage but it’s easy to build up your coverage too if you don’t want it to be full coverage. You can easily use a beauty blender and it will sheer out the foundation for you at first if you want something more natural. It is very long lasting and I feel like if I didn’t have an oily T zone this would be great to wear on its own without a setting powder. #Beautyverse

Okay guys, so my mom is gonna get me a foundation as part of my Christmas gifts and I can’t decide which one. I have really dry skin and I’m either fair or light (depends what brand) when it comes to shades but I have a neutral undertone. The current foundation I use is the Bh cosmetics liquid foundation (shade fair beige) and I love it but I wanted to try something from the high end section because I’ve never owned a high end foundation. Have any of y’all tried these foundations?

I’m looking for a good foundation. I have dry skin that gets oilier as the day goes on. I don’t wear makeup during the week so it’s mostly just for going out on the weekend. I don’t mind spending a little more since it lasts me longer. I’m using Kat Von D foundation right now, but it doesn’t leave a smooth and poreless matte finish like I’m looking for and ends up looking kind of cakey. Desperately need recommendations!

Any recommendations for a really pale natural-dewy finish vegan/cruelty-free foundation with neutral-warm undertones. For reference the nyx “can’t stop won’t stop” foundation in pale is a good shade match just too matte/thick for my dry skin. Thank you!❤️

What’s a really great dewy foundation? I use the maybelline urban cover but it settles weirdly. I just ordered the colourpop tinted moisturizer and I’m worried that it’ll do the same thing. I love the too faces born this way foundation but I can’t stomach the price

What foundation do you recommend for combo skin? I tried the Nars foundation but it makes me breakout and extremely oily. It also transfers way too easily. What foundation do y’all recommend that is semi natural/matte finish with medium to full coverage.

Does anyone know a good foundation that STAYS ALL DAY, stays smooth and doesn’t look gross by the end of the day? I just bought the hello happy from benefit but the reviews are bad so I’m a little concerned.

So I normally go for a luminous finish so the abh luminous foundation (not sure if that’s the exact title but it’s the one that says foundation down the side of the bottle) is really good for staying where you want it. If not, I’d say a good matte foundation is the Huda Beauty one.
