Amazing

If you can get a match this is such a nice foundation. This is my everyday pick! light to medium coverage. Natural looking which I personally love. Last with a good base. Color range stinks I am medium-tan and the darkest shade matches me. Also, does oxidize a bit. |||insta-worthy|||easy to use|||must-have

Very Nice

Foundations always look really good or really bad on my skin and fortunately, this one looks good. I have oily skin with large pores and some texture. This doesn't oxidize on me. Works well over a primer. I always set it, even though it's not necessarily tacky. Concealer applies nicely on top. I'm on the the lighter end of a medium skin tone and the Fresh Nude is a good match for me.

I really wanted to like this

I have dry, mature skin and I hoped this would be great- I'm always hoping to find a perfect drugstore foundation. Sadly this isn't it. The shade range is ridiculous but beyond that I found the finish to be rather greasy and didn't wear well at all. My skin is normal to dry so it's rare for me to have trouble with foundations being overly greasy or breaking down. This just didn't look good on me after a few hours. Boo.

Great for dry skin!

The shade range is a disgrace, but I'm hoping they'll expand it because this foundation is great. I'm fair with neutral undertones, and the lightest shade worked for me. I didn't notice it oxidizing any. The finish is more on the dewy side, but it's not too luminous. It makes my skin look super healthy and doesn't exaggerate any trouble areas!

Love it.

I always have a hard time finding a foundation that is the right color. Seems I am between shades and I cannot figure out the proportions for mixing. I had bough an H&M cushion foundation that was very good, but it ran out! (How dare it run out?), so I was on the look for a new foundation to refill it. I like the way the cushion applies, but just didn't care for the prices. So i cleaned out the container well, washed the cushion inside, then filled the reservoir about 1/3 of the way full, then reinserted the cushion. I let it sit for 24 hrs, then turn the cushion over. I LOVE this foundation. It is a great foundation. It is buildable and blendable. By using the cushion style, I can apply as much or as little as I want to and the combination of the cushion and foundation is just perfect. So yes, I'll continue to buy this foundation until I reach the point where I no longer purchase foundation. In the past, I found the best color foundations for me were Clinique and Princess And while the PB really hasn't gone up that much, Clinique is around 3x as expensive as it was then, and I am older & more frugal. I have other things to spend money on :) So I was looking for a less expensive option. I am more and more impressed by "budget" lines as the quality is still terrific.
