      Great product! Pricey but worth it and I'm someone who usually sticks to budget make up. If used sparingly i.e. only when you have all day excursions instead of to work everyday, etc. the product will last a long time as well.

        I normally stray from products that are expensive. I was at my local Ulta and decided to splurge and let me say I am glad I did! This foundation is so nice and covers all my imperfections. It can be used as a medium coverage but I tend to go full. I will definitely be repurchasing this product.

            I bought this after good reviews. I went to the Ulta store and the gal helped me pick out my shade. Also, a concealer. After wearing it, I would say that it is too drying on my normal/dry skin. It doesnt give me a dewy glow either. I wouldn't rate it any higher than my drug store Loreal. (Actually, I think I like my old Loreal better) I have a sun spot, and it did not hide it, even with the concealer and primer. It was really expensive and they did not honor the free gift with purchase.

                • Q:

                  I'm using born this way in light beige. I love the color but after a few hrs it's melting off since I have very oily skin. What color best matches this one? Do I need to use primer? Setting powder? I am looking for a long wearing non transfer matte foundation. I've heard great things and willing to give this one a try.

                • Q:

                  I HATE foundation. Hate it. Recently, I have been going for a more simple look using just BB cream but I need something with more coverage. I tried the shape tape concealer but it was terrible on my skin and just separated like after a few hours.
                  Can I use this in spots where concealer would go?? My face is super oily throughout the day.

                  Thank you!
