this foundation has quickly made its way to my #1 favorite, it’s a beautiful dewy foundation with buildable coverage that comes in a stunning vintage but fashionable bottle

- Sephora User

for anyone searching for buildable natural coverage i highly recommend giving this a chance

- Sephora User



i love this foundation is so light weight and i love the smooth soft texture

- Patmcgrath User

i would highly recommend this foundation to anyone looking for a long wearing, light weight and beautiful foundation

- Sephora User


good quality

firstly, the packaging is beautiful and high quality

- Patmcgrath User

this product feels so luxurious and high quality

- Sephora User

color accuracy

doesn't oxidize

i really love this foundation, it’s a little bit liquid and the coverage is from light to medium but this is depend how you use in your face, it’s a little bit satin and soft, i applied to my face with a brush and i love it, definitely this is my new favorite foundation, the color is perfect and the packaging is perfect too because the foundation never change the color because the dispenser allows it to not rust with air, and i have oily skin and this foundation works excellent all day because it isn’t heavy

- Sephora User

my skin looks amazing, it lasts all day, it doesn't oxidize, there's no scent, my skin is even clearing up

- Sephora User



i love the dewy finish and radiant glow when i wear this product

- Patmcgrath User

this is by far my favorite foundation this year it’s so natural looking and makes the skin look so radiant

- Patmcgrath User


blends well

i received this product for testing purposes and it blends so well and i am still so amazed how light it is

- Patmcgrath User

i would say skin fetish is the best i have tried; only a little drops go a long way and blending into skin with my fingertips felt so easy, since the texture is really weightless

- Sephora User



i have dry skin and it makes my skin look blurred and healthy

- Patmcgrath User

not only does the foundation make your skin feel so hydrated and fresh, but even after an entire day in 90 degree weather this foundation was still sitting nicely on my face

- Sephora User



this foundation is easy to apply, looks smooth on my face when applicated

- Sephora User

then i tried it with primer and the foundation made my skin look smooth and flawless~

- Sephora User

staying power


the finish is gorgeous, it lasts all day and i am a busy trauma nurse in downtown denver, and the smell is amazing

- Sephora User

it didn’t accentuate any fine lines, it stayed on for 10+ hours even on an extremely humid day

- Patmcgrath User

color correction

color correcting

i typically use a green color corrector on most of my fave under my foundation, but on days when i have forgotten to apply, this foundation covers up all of my redness in one pass

- Sephora User

i like a more shear/color correcting foundation and this works great

- Patmcgrath User

pore minimizing

pore minimizing

i’d recommend using a pore filling primer with this and setting your face lightly

- Sephora User

i wore light 01 all day long and it didn't settle into my pores or look cakey, as so so many of my foundations had

- Patmcgrath User


not creasing

i loved the finish, it was perfect like skin and coveraged all the imperfections, it didn’t crease on my wrinkles and it held alllllllllll day until i eased it off late that night

- Sephora User

does not settle in fine lines and dries down nicely so you could easily wear with or without a powder

- Sephora User



i refuse to use this product or gift it due to the alcohol content being so incredibly drying and damaging to skin

- Patmcgrath User

sadly, it turned my dry skin into a greasy mess and wore off and became patchy after the 4-5 hour mark

- Sephora User



i'm not ever joking when i say this is like your skin but so much better it's definitely a natural finish

- Patmcgrath User

i loved the silky, natural finish of the foundation

- Sephora User


medium coverage

this foundation is amazing a satin finish is weightless and you can get a medium to full coverage are using a sponge or a brush

- Patmcgrath User

super lightweight and buildable to a medium coverage

Pat McGrath has done it again! I am in love. I was skeptical when I heard this was coming out. I always see foundations hyped up, and they end up being like everything else. This blew me away though, most of all with how versatile it is. Normally a foundation is super matte and dry and gross, or I am shiny in 5 minutes and it doesn’t stay on even when powdered. This foundation I would say, in my opinion, starts off with like medium coverage when I put it on with a brush, but I was able to sheer it down to be almost like a tinted moisturizer or BB cream when I used my hands and put it on like a moisturizer. BUT, the kicker is when I used my brush again for another layer, then a sponge just to blend it in it built up to a full coverage, but I could still somehow see my own skin still while covering my flaws. And to top it off, it feels like you just put on a piece of skincare, it doesn’t feel even remotely like you’re putting foundation on. I don’t know how Pat did all that, but she did, which I suppose if anyone could it would be her. I also found that it looked like skin, it wasn’t super shiny, but it wasn’t matte. However when I used my matte setting powder it did make it more matte, so that’s why I say it’s versatile. If you like it dewy and glowy no need to set it, if you want it matte, use a powder. It looks gorgeous either way. I also have really long days at work, and even when I’ve tried it with no powder it stayed on my for like 12 hours and I have oily skin. I’ve never had that with a foundation before, especially when not setting it. Anyways, thanks for coming to my Ted Talk, I would 10/10 recommend trying it! Thanks Pat for changing my life with foundation.

Absolutely perfect

I really thought I couldn’t possibly be obsessed with any other Pat McGrath products, yet here we are. This foundation is literally perfect. The second you see the packaging alone, you know you are receiving a quality luxury product. I’m a light 6, and it’s the absolute perfect match for me, it doesn’t have too much pink undertone (which some other foundations do), or have any yellow undertone (which so many “cool” tone foundations do). You can achieve whatever coverage you desire so easily with it, it builds coverage so well and so easily. I used a foundation brush to apply and it went on so beautifully. It didn’t accentuate any fine lines, it stayed on for 10+ hours even on an extremely humid day. The most important part for me is that it didn’t irritate my skin at all, as my skin can sometimes be sensitive. My skin tends to be dry to combo, and I actually do have a small hormonal breakout right now and this covered it so well, and didn’t irritate it any further. I was somehow lucky enough to be chosen to receive this foundation complimentary for testing purposes, and I am 100% sold on it. I will absolutely be buying my “winter” shade this fall when my skin loses it’s summer “tan”. Thank you AGAIN, Pat McGrath for choosing little old me to give my honest opinion of this product, and also for creating another truly amazing product. « less

The perfect foundation.... This is light weight for summer and if you use the set, you'll be straight. I have oily skin and even with the primer, the oiliness wasn't that bad. it left a little sheen. for the people that were complaining about the foundation left dry patches on their skin, I ask, did you buy the primer?? I have oily skin and I bought the hydrating primer which is geared towards dry skin since most supermodels have dry skin because of the things used for their quick makeup changes on the runway. Why would you spend this much on a foundation and not the coordinating primer that they release to go with it?? that is probably why your skin is showing dry patches. because you are using a different primer than is supposed to be used. this is a water based foundation. you can't use a silicone based one with it. if you are going to spend an excessive amount on a foundation, you might as well by the primer too. if you want to show that you can be expensive, then be expensive. don't say you can't afford it if you are spending that much on it. Pat's website had a coupon for the release last week where she was giving an extra 10% off the foundation then another price break if you got the foundation, primer and powder. I got the everything kit which had both brushes too and that was $250. but the foundation melts into your skin. it looks very natural which is a break from my typical matte face. you can't even tell you have foundation on. « less

I really wanted to love this foundation. I went into Sephora to purchase a liquid foundation with moderate coverage and a natural finish that was also lightweight, buildable and would last all day (even on my very oily t-zone). I had initially intended to purchase the Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation, but they did not have a color match for me. I asked a few employees what a good alternative would be and listed what I was looking for in a foundation and they recommended this foundation by Pat McGrath Labs. They all said it was “the best,” “worth every penny,” and one that “you can’t go wrong with.” Unfortunately I found none of this to be true. I ended up purchasing this (I justified paying $68 for a foundation due to all of the amazing skincare ingredients in its formula) in the lightest neutral shade: Light 3 (light with neutral undertones). After I had bad results using this with all of my Holy Grail products I decided to try it with some of my other primers, setting powders & setting sprays. I tried applying it with my fingers (as Pat McGrath suggests when applying the first layer), a Beautyblender and several different brushes. Sadly all of my efforts were to no avail. No matter what I tried it felt sticky and heavy on my skin, looked patchy within 1-2 hours (the first time within 30 minutes), creased in areas I’ve never had creasing before, and the list goes on and on. The only good thing I have to say about this foundation is that the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. It comes in a luxurious feeling box which opens like a jewelry box to reveal a beautiful frosted glass bottle with gold accents AND a pump (did I mention how much I wanted to love this foundation). **My skin type: I have very fair combination to oily, sensitive, acne-prone skin. I get fairly oily about 4-6 hours into my day on my forehead, nose and inner cheeks. I sometimes get dry patches on my chin, nose, and either side of my mouth. My skin is prone to redness and I tend to break out if a product has any harsh ingredients or fragrances. I am usually the lightest or second lightest neutral shade in a foundation when I do not self-tan (which is most of the time) and my undertone is slightly warm.**

Another innovative product from Pat McGrath

Honestly? I wasn't that excited when I heard Pat McGrath was releasing a foundation. There are so many formulas, techniques, and types of foundation that I didn't think it was possible to create something truly unique, as far as foundations go.I was wrong.I will never doubt again.Ok, let's get the basics out of the way. All the claims in the description are true; it starts as sheer and builds to medium coverage easily, is self-setting and a satin finish.But let's talk about why this is so unique.This is hands-down the best self-setting formula I've ever experienced. This foundation truly sinks into the skin, to the point where I can't tell that there's makeup on my face with sheer-to-light layers, yet my skin looks...perfect. Seriously, it just looks like I have the best skin of my life, but feels like nothing is on my skin. Even when building up to medium coverage, I can tell that it's there, but is so much lighter than other medium coverage foundations I have.The satin finish is also stunning. It does dry down a little more matte than I would prefer, but it appears dewy when the light catches it. When I wear this sheer, I don't mind the finish, but when I build it up I make sure to use a good amount of dewy setting spray.Of course the packaging is spectacular as well - it fits in perfectly with the 80s high fashion aesthetic of her Instagram.Overall, I would think of this as the most perfecting BB or CC cream you've ever seen, with the optional coverage of a foundation. It's an absolutely gorgeous, weightless formula that truly makes my skin look incredible.I received this foundation complimentary for testing purposes, but am already going to repurchase at full price, because the shade I was sent is just a hair too light for me! « less

Can anyone please recommend a good foundation that won’t make me extremely glory but not matte either. Just a natural finish look from lite to medium coverage ? I do suffer from acne so something that won’t affect it.

So I’m 14 and I have a dance in 2 weeks at my school. I can’t find a foundation or concealer that doesn’t make me look like a cake face. Keep in mind I don’t have like over 20 bucks to spend on it ✌🏻

Go into Sephora and ask for a sample. Typically they will give you one little thing, but if you’re nice and ask for a second they’ll give you another. I have really sensitive skin so whenever I try a new product I have to be sure before I buy so I always ask for a second sample and I’ve never been turned down. If you go with the sample suggestion get the new Pat McGrath foundation; it’s light and buildable. It is super expensive so only do it if you’re just getting the sample. It seems super watery, but it spreads evenly and won’t give you that cake face.
