Weird Foundation

I had so many high hopes for this foundation sadly it was a miss for me. I'd say this foundation is a light to medium coverage I don't know about full. I felt like it would start to look cakey if you tried to layer it up. I don't mind that it's more of a natural coverage foundation but the fact that it would bunch up & do something weird once you applied powder on top threw me off. It did not look flattering at all, I have never experienced anything like that before. I decided to give it another try & only used cream products with it unfortunately that did not work either. Every time I tried to blend out the product on top it would ball up & the foundation would come off. I even tried using a different moisturizer & primer & had the same issue.

What I’ve been waiting for in a foundation!

I’ve been really impressed with this foundation!! I was a bit wary before trying it since it’s listed as being “medium to full coverage,” and I typically don’t like wearing foundation because it feels too heavy on my skin. This foundation goes on really light, but can easily be built up for fuller coverage; it almost feels like a liquid to powder because it goes on matte and isn’t oily on your skin. I love that a little bit goes a long way! Again, I don’t like wearing heavy foundations, so this one is perfect for just using a little bit to even out my skin tone and cover redness.And when it says “traceless” It really means it! Usually if I wear even the littlest bit of foundation or concealer my husband will notice, but I’ve been wearing this stuff for about two weeks now and my husband hasn’t said a thing! The color matches my skin perfectly and it wears beautifully, so even at the end of a hot summer day it isn’t melting off my face. It does pick up the dry skin on my nose, so a face primer might be useful if you have dry skin like me.I also love the twist to open bottle. It’s great that it’s an easy, one step open and close so there’s no risk of spilling and it’s easy to pump out the exact amount you need.I’ve tried lots of foundations, and I’ve always wondered why someone can’t just make a serum-like foundation that dries on the skin and stays in place, and now I’ve discovered that Tom Ford has done it! It’s definitely on the pricey side, but worth it in my opinion. You definitely get a quality product for the price! Less

My HG Foundation Stick

I first purchased this foundation stick at NM. I love Tom Ford Beauty products and I am over the moon that Sephora now carries the entire collection! I have sensitive, combination skin and this foundation makes my skin look flawless. I am sure my Tatcha skincare regimen doesn't hurt. If you aren't able to go to a Sephora to find your perfect match, check out the Beauty Professor's website. She has amazing swatches of all of the shades of the Tom Ford foundations. I can wear this foundation with or without primer and powder or setting spray (but I prefer to at least add powder to my t-zone as it can get slightly oily in the Summer heat). This foundation gives your skin a natural, flawless finish (neither fully matte or overly dewy). It wears well all day on me without touch ups. The coverage is medium to full. I highly recommend putting on a layer (in swipes on your face) and blending it out with a brush or a BB. Then if there are areas where you need more coverage, you can build those areas up more without any cakiness or heaviness on the skin. It doesn't emphasize pores or wrinkles and is my favorite foundation to take on trips because it is super-travel friendly. This is the first foundation stick that I was able to find the right color in and it has the right texture, coverage, and finish. Less

Just like real skin!

So if you’re looking for pure luxury in a tube you should definitely try this awesome foundation! I was absolutely in love with the packaging from the moment I took it out of the box. It’s exactly what you’d expect from a high-end foundation like this: A beautiful frosted bottle with an airtight chamber so the product doesn’t oxidize.The foundation itself goes on very smoothly with a beauty blender and is quite buildable. You can do a sheer, quick layer for some basic coverage, or build it up for a more glam look. Honestly I think this foundation is best suited for more natural looks: It actually looks like real skin! The finish is a lot different than what I’m used to from other brands, and it doesn’t have that “flatness” that a lot of other matte foundations have. Honestly it’s way more skin-like and natural looking than I expected! It layers really well with both liquid and cream blush as well.I used this with an Yves Saint Laurent primer and it worked really well. I didn’t like it so much with my Tatcha liquid silk primer. It does have a tendency to sink into fine lines and crease, especially on a really hot day, so you have to watch out for that. Don’t use too much powder and don’t layer it on too heavy! But if you avoid all this, it ends up looking like an awesome natural foundation that won’t let anyone know you’re wearing makeup! Less

HG Material

I am in love with this foundation. It may feel heavy upon initial application, but settles into a lightweight and natural-looking finish. This is a huge plus for me because I hate the feeling like you're wearing a ton of makeup. This is actually the first non-mineral makeup foundation I actually use. It hasn't broken out my sensitive/overreactive skin and does a good job in covering my redness. It can be applied lightly to achieve sheer coverage and can be built up to full coverage. I found the product easy to blend with their cream foundation brush (HG!) and it does photograph beautifully. I have been receiving compliments on my skin when wearing this foundation. Just yesterday, a woman said she wanted sheer makeup like mine even although I was wearing a ton of this product. The sales woman helping her didn't think I was wearing a medium/full coverage foundation. This foundation really looks natural, fresh, and glowing (and not the weird shimmer/overly dewy kind of way).My only gripe with it (nothing is perfect) is that it could use a little more of a yellow undertone to be my perfect match but that's easily corrected with finishing powder. I can see this foundation being a problem with people with either really oily or really dry skin. It does accentuate dry patches, but can be corrected with appropriate skincare. Less
