if your after an oil free foundation, with no shine, great coverage, feels light on your skin, doesn't crease- this is the foundation for you

- Mecca User

it's so lightweight and makes my face feel amazing

- Nordstrom User


blends well

and it's a lovely finish, & great to apply (blends & builds really well)

- Mecca User

i have tan skin with yellow undertones and the shea shade blends perfectly with my natural tone even when my skin becomes darker during the summer

- Nordstrom User



i love the texture and coverage of this foundation and how it makes my complexion look hydrated

- Nordstrom User

this is my second purchase and love it's smooth texture and hydrating qualities

- Mecca User



it is easy for everyday and creates a flawless finish which is both radiant and super long lasting on my face

- Nordstrom User

the coverage is not strong and yes some spots may still show, but it gives me a throughly radiant look and makes the complexion fresher and prettier, which is exactly what i'm looking for because somehow i dislike a perfect flawless mask feeling that some foundations do

- Saksfifthavenue User



this is a beautiful, light textured foundation with medium coverage, buildable and giving a totally natural look if you get the correct shade

- Spacenk User

this foundation is so incredibly light in texture, and very buildable, with amazing aloe and chamomile extracts and gel based formula this foundation allows the skin to breathe and calm skin down

- Mecca User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

this certainly a poreless and fine finish xo

- Mecca User

i struggle to get a natural non oily and yet smooth cover, particularly over my nose and forehead, which then to be a bit pore and pock marked; this foundation is s dream come true; my skin looks perfect with just a dab applied with my fingers

- Mecca User



it's like wearing nothing at all - its smooth creamy but light texture gives great coverage and most importantly, wearing it gives you the feeling that your skin can breathe

- Mecca User

the colour match is near perfect for my skin tone, and the texture is both silky and light, evens out the skin, and covers minor imperfections like a dream

- Mecca User


good quality

it really is worth every penny as i haven’t found a foundation of the same quality

- Spacenk User

although a little pricey, it also lasts for a long time and the quality and feel of it is amazing

- Mecca User

staying power


i recommend this foundation to all my friends, it feels amazing, looks amazing and stays amazing throughout the day

- Mecca User

sweat resistant and lasts all day - and it's natural

- Nk User


not creasing

it is a lovely gel-like formula that is easy to blend and does not crease or settle into fine lines

- Mecca User

and did not settle into any of my fine lines

- Mecca User

color accuracy


i bought my foundation online using "find my shade" service and when i opened the jar, i was at first afraid of how dark the color was (i bought the ivory shade) but in fact the colour match is ok (i have rather fair skin tone but not too pale as snow white), nevertheless the shade turned to be a little bit yellow altought it was promised to be with pink undertones (that's why only 4 stars from 5)

- Spacenk User

unfortunately, it turned orangey on my skin and after a few hours, i looked like a character on star trek

- Nordstrom User



chantecaille's future skin is by far my favourite foundation i have ever used - your skin is given a healthy, glowing, flawless finish which evens out the skin tone

- Mecca User

it wears wonderfully throughout the day, lets your natural oils come through in a glowy non-greasy way

- Mecca User


medium coverage

medium coverage that is invisible and leaves you with the skin of your twenties

- Nk User

it's labelled medium coverage but it really is super sheer and while it evens out the skin nicely and gives a lovely, dewy glow it's not going to put in the hard yards with skin that needs something a bit more heavy duty

THIS is the future of foundations our skin has been thirsting for!

Ever since I was recommended this product by one of the lovely ladies at MECCA, I have been utterly in love with this phenomenal and life changing foundation. After using this product for a month, I have received SO many compliments (and still continue to do so!) which instantly bumped up my self-confidence and helped me to produce an inner glow and an outer one due to the sheer, natural dewiness this innovative product provides.Why should this be your 'holy grail' foundation? Well, once you've gently dipped your fingers into its gorgeous gel-creme texture, the foundation will instantly melt into your skin like a dream! This foundation cleverly adapts to your skin giving you the natural, healthy glow your skin deserves, without leaving you feeling oily, caked, or sticky. It gives a light to medium coverage that you can wear happily throughout the day and build-up if needed to for the evening.I was delighted to see that the ingredients contain water; meaning my foundation would be less likely to slip and slide off my face and onto my clothes, and it also helps stimulate hydration which is great for combatting the wintertime flakiness. Also, the Rosemary leaf extract is a powerful anti-oxidant, fighting off all the early stages of ageing and fellow nasties that we want to keep away from our skin!To sum it all up, this foundation is SUCH a revolutionary product, well worth the hype and price! A MUST for the Mecca beauty junkie, or anyone wanting to truly experience the future of makeup as it also is HD compatible. I recommend wearing this over Hourglass's Mineral Veil to boost the longevity of this luxurious foundation! Less

Buildable coverage, creates a beautiful even skin tone without looking mask like

I have been using this for about 9 months now. Prior to this I was using a natural mineral powder which was starting to make my skin look cakey and much more aged than it is (settled into fine line and pores). I wanted something with a relatively natural/botanical base and this was suggested. I tried it about a year ago and was given a sample by the lovely Alix at the Mecca Hero store in Melb CBD. I tried it one night when heading out to a concert (hot, sweaty, 36 degrees!). It actually looked better at the end of the night than it did immediately after application! I find you need to give it about 5 or 10 minutes to 'settle' before you can see its true coverage. This is helpful to know if you want to build a bit more coverage for a night out. Apply, leave a bit, then pop on a bit more (although I tend not to build up as I will wear bronzer and blush). I have some scarring on my cheeks and temples from acne as a teenager. The only way to describe it, is that it airbrushes that away. It does not look mask like, in fact it looks like my own skin, with a bit of extra help. It is definitely worth the $. Being a gel foundation means it does not set too quickly, but when it does it hydrates nicely, so it doesn't settle and look cakey and dry. The Mecca team are more than happy to provide a sample to test out. And I found the teeny sample pot gave me 3-4 applications! One jar lasts me about 4 months - and that is with daily-ish use (the ish is I rarely wear make up on Sundays!). NB: I have a light olive complexion, tan a little in summer, and the Ivory shade is still a good match for me then too). Less

Flawless Skin

There are a number of things that are great about this product, which falls perfectly in line with the Chantecaille philosophy: creating natural, flawless skin.I'm a bit of a Chantecaille fan, using their cleanser, exfoliator, mascara, blusher and other products! If you're looking for a foundation that looks as though you're not wearing anything, but have enhanced what you've got then this is the one for you. There's no cakey-ness or flaking; it doesn't sink into your pores throughout the day; it has great lasting power (although if you work in an air-conditioned office you'll probably have to reapply if you're heading out in the evening); and it doesn't dry out your skin.I find it works great as an everyday foundation that's light enough to look natural, but can also build up for a more dramatic night time look whilst still not looking like you're wearing foundation.I definitely wouldn't put it in the full coverage section of the foundation market, but depending on how much you layer, you'll only need the odd dab of concealer for problem areas (such as the odd breakout/dark circles under the eyes); it does blend beautifully though so you'll not notice the two products you're using.Yes, it's not cheap, but I'm a believer that staples like foundation are worth spending a little more on. It also lasts a really long time. I've had my current pot for over 3 months and I use it everyday, at least once. Less

Didn't work for me, expensive mistake.

I love their silk infused eye pencils and the mascara so it was a given that i would be interested in other products. I researched this foundation online before buying as it was so pricey. After years of looking for an excellent foundation i was sold by the good reviews and the Youtube posts. It was sticky to use and did not stay on my skin for long. I have mature, naturally oily skin which i would normally blot during the day. I use a powder to set it as i prefer a more matte look. However this did more than a dewy look that others have mentioned. My skin was quickly looking oily and the nose and chin area soon looked like i had not applied my makeup. I did try to build up the foundation in areas that needed it, but it just seemed to absorb and not give the coverage required. I applied with fingers first, then the next time with a sponge. i kept trying, It is not a winner. Plus friends commented that i looked washed out!! Can not recommend. Money down the drain for me. :-( <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>

I was a skeptic until...

I was a skeptic to be honest about this foundation. I watched youtube videos, looked up blogs and pictures, and even went to try it on at the mall a couple times. I finally bought Future Skin Foundation and used a couple of brushes to get the medium coverage I needed to cover my hyperpigmentation or melasma on my cheeks. The best brush I tried was the Cover Fx foundation brush because of the density of the bristles. The brush allowed me get pretty decent coverage by dabbing or patting the foundation on my face. With some concealer and powder to set...voila!!...the end result was amazing! I am 36yo Asian with combination skin. I can get pretty oily throughout the day in the t-zone area, but no matter what foundation I use, I always have to blot. The foundation held up for my 12-hr work shift and then some. It wore off a little in the creases of the nose area...but that's usual for me from blotting here and there. I would totally recommend this foundation...even if it's to get a sample and try it. It's very pretty on the skin and setting with powder I feel increases its longevity if you have oily skin. Hope this review helps some of you who are still skeptical of the product or are on the fence about trying it. Give it a try!! You'll never know right!! <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__translate-span">« less</span>
