I have mixed feelings about this one of the most famous raved about foundations. Some days it looks amaizing the other days it's just not flattering. It sinks into pores and accentuate them. Pore filling primer helps but overall it looks and sits heavy on the skin sometimes. Staying power is decent 6 to 7 hours on my combination skin. It's matte when you first apply it then it gets more dewy. It can cling to dry patches.

This foundation caused me cystic closed comedones! I have acne prone oily skin but my skincare routine has changed that for the better. For me there are 2 ingredients that could have caused this, Sorbitan Oleate and Bis-Butyldimethicone Polyglyceryl-3. I loved the foundation as far as application, coverage and blending. It isn't really sheer but closer to a medium coverage and can be built up. If it didn't contain the pore clogging ingredients it could possibly be a top foundation for me. I gave 3 stars for that and took 2 stars away due to it's comedogenic ingredients.

This is a very unique colour and one of the only cool yellow foundations in the NC10-13 shade range that I have been able to find so far. However, the formula does not work very well with my combination to dry skin. The foundation often applies streakily and does usually not last all day, after a few hours it starts breaking up on my face.

Nice shade, great texture while applying. The finish is slightly dewy, not quite but almost tacky. Easily goes from dewy to shiny without upkeep. Coverage is medium, you can probably go lighter but not heavier. For any oiliness past normal this melts off very easily. Love that it's yellow/neutral toned. Like everyone else hate the lack of pump, messy. Probably ideal for those slightly dry who want a glowy look and not too-heavy coverage.
