Love this foundation!

I have used this smooth foundation for years. I was thrilled to find it online. Gives a light but excellent cover - never heavy. Great colors for my skin. Never causes my face to breakout, like so many others do.I hope I can find this product for decades to come!

Amazing Foundation

I think spf in cosmetics causes me to break out and gives me milia so I try to avoid it whenever possible. I decided to try this foundation because it was one of the few I could find without spf. It still has the titanium dioxide which helps to shield the skin but does not have that heavy spf to it which I believe clogs my pores. The color of this foundation is beautiful. The linen beige is actually natural and not orange at all.Estee Lauder knows how to make natural skin tone shades. My skin feels so nice and smooth when Im wearing it also.Its very natural.Its not cakey or flaky which many cheap brands of foundation are. I think it seems to cover my pores better than some of the popular high end full coverage foundations I've tried. If I use alittle foundation primer first in the t zone area before applying this the pores disappear completely. I use a foundation brush to apply mine which really helps to blend it. Oh and it also washes off easily at the end of the day! Very important if you do not want to breakout.Overall Im very happy with my purchase and will be repurchasing most likely and discontinuing use of the other foundations I own. <span class="shop__a pd-reviews__expand-link pd-reviews__translate-span" data-hide="5183191712971304400-full" data-show="5183191712971304400-short" jsaction="pdui.tvc">« less</span>

Best Foundation I have ever used in my life!

I do not know how I have never run accross this foundation before. I think Estee Lauder has taken the spotlight a lot lately from the company's marketing and I wanted to bring this foundation to its glory again. I rarely write reviews about makeup as there are always different companies out there that might do the same exact thing, which means I am rarely excited about them. This is such a light weight foundation, smells fresh and kind of like a moisturizer. Blends like a dream, is soft and sets to a powdery finish. I have a combination skin to oily skin in the summer and this foundation has treated my skin amazingly well! It sits all day long when I set it with a powder and it looks really natural. It has a light to medium coverage and evens out your skin tone and covers just enough without clogging the pores or making the skin look like there is make up on. I feel like this foundation changes it shade to match my color as I wore it before tanning and after tanning and I had the case of "Sisterhood of traveling pants". The color matched me amazingly, weirdly enough. I have tried all high end foundations to drugstore but this one is the one I will buy and use from now on. It has become my holy grail! Less

Finally Found "The One"

After searching many years for a foundation suitable for aging oily skin with large pores, I decided to take a chance on Fresh Air makeup. For me, this makeup stays on ALL day...and looks as fabulous at night as it does in the morning. I only have to blot my nose area about mid-afternoon....this is a MIRACLE for my skin. I apply with a foundation brush after my sunscreen and the results are absolutely beautiful. Most foundations suitable for oily skin have a dull pasty look, but this one gives a fresh "glow" to my skin. I really couldn't believe the first day when I looked in the mirror at night to see my skin look as good as when I applied the makeup in the morning!!! I use the shade called linen beige for my fair to medium coloring, and it is perfect.

Best foundation

I have been using fresh air makeup base in Ivory Mist for over 35 years. it is the best foundation I have ever used. Several times when it was out if stock, I tried to find replacements but nothing came close to being this good. I like the fact that it goes on so smooth and blends flawlessly. There is absolutely no greasy or cakey dried feeling like other makeup. You feel like you arent wearing makeup while your skin looks flawlessly natural. Feels good all day. My daughter borrowed some from me one day and she is now a loyal fan too. This proves how fantastic this is-it looks as great on a 60 year old face as it does on a 25 year old face. Warning: If you try this foundation, you will be hooked for life.

So I went to ulta today and bought this foundation... only to realize it’s bad for my oily skin as it says in the reviews on this app, I don’t know if to keep it or go exchange it. The lady convinced me into getting it since I wanted something full coverage but she forgot to mention it wasn’t good for oily skin types and now I’m low key upset because I was really looking forward to it and now I don’t know what other foundation I’m going to end up getting.
