    Did not go on like a foundation. Felt more like a BB cream. Hardly any coverage. Didn't last all day. Would recommend only if looking for very light coverage.

        I bought this foundation in hopes that it would help keep my face from getting/looking oily during these hot summer days! This foundation did the trick! It goes on well, has good coverage, lasts all day and feels so soft! I like this foundation better than the much more expensive product I was previously using

          I love the amazing cover up you get from this very light not heavy make up that matches my skin so perfect, I cannot tell it is even on. I also get a bonus of moisture for my skin. I shop and usually buy BIG BRANDS that cost LOTS of $$. This is my go to, and saves tons of money. Please don't ever discontinue this product!

              I'm a HUGE brand buyer. I live for my pricey foundations, but needed something that would be inexpensive when going to the gym or class. I picked this up and it is hands down the best drug store foundation I've ever used.... In fact, I reach for it over my too faced, UD, or tarte foundations!! I get more compliments on my complexion when wearing this than ever before. It goes on so smooth, it's very hydration fans makes my skin feel amazing and even. Would HIGHLY recommend trying it!! The color 75 is perfect for my skin tone.. Perfect!!

                  I searched everywhere for a cheap foundation to use for my summer color when I finally settled on this. I got home and put it on and it was the most orange base I have ever seen. I will definitely be sticking with my Tarte BB Cream.

                            It's challenging to compare shades between brands but based on what we see on their website we can narrow it down to a few shades. In the Dream Velvet Soft-Matte Hydrating Foundation (from lighter to darker) take a look at the creamy naturale 50 and the pure beige 70.
