Put a little liquid foundation onto the back of your hand and with your fingertip, dab the foundation over your face: two dabs on your forehead, two on the cheeks, one on your nose, and one on your chin. Covering the face this way helps ensure a more even and spreadable coverage. Blend the foundation into the skin with your fingers or using a foundation brush.

          Definitely love this product!! The creamy thick texture is amazing, AND it's lightweight! I got this as a quick replacement from one of my other foundations because they were out of my shade (I'm pretty fair skinned) and I ended up loving this so much more than other brands I've used in the past.

            Really wanted to like this. Found a great match for my skin but this is just bad. I've only had it on for a few hours and it's breaking up all over. I have pretty normal skin. I normally use Revlon colorstay. Should have just stuck with that.

            my face is covered with scars and acne. was hoping for a fuller coverage and something that didn't cause more pimples and blackheads. This definitely isn't it. color matched good but that's the only nice thing I can say about it. I have tried applying it with my fingers a damp beauty blender and a good service nothing works with this stuff.

            This is an ok foundation. It is way to thick though. I thin it out when I use it with some face oil. It helps to thin it out.

                For those with light skin and pink undertones like you, Creamy Natural may be your best match. However, it's always best to test the shades in-store with the assistance of one of our beauty associates to ensure a shade is perfect for you! :-)

                A:

                This foundation is formulated with a form of hyaluronic acid, which is a very hydrating ingredient, as well as with sweet almond extract to sooth and nourish sensitive skin. For those with dry skin, we recommend moisturizing and exfoliating (2X weekly for sensitive skin) to ensure smooth application.
