    Comments about Napoleon Perdis Sheer Genius Liquid Foundation:

    I have become a fan of this product. I usually like to mix it up and try various brands to see what they have to offer, but this product is my one stand-by that I find myself relying on now! I first tried this at a Napolean Perdis store and was impressed with how easy the application was with a brush and how sheer/natural it felt on and looked. I have since bought this product at least half a dozen times and will continue. For more coverage, it can be layered on and sometimes I use my fingers for this. But the product goes a long way with a brush and I just love the results. I sometimes need to use it in conjunction with concealer/stronger stick foundation just under my eyes for more coverage. Overall, a great product though, that I can't recommend highly enough!!

      Comments about Napoleon Perdis Sheer Genius Liquid Foundation:

      The best way to apply this foundation would be a stipple brush. Goes on smooth with a light feel and has good coverage. I wouldn't recommend using a sponge simply because it absorbs alot of product and for the price you don't want to waste any and with the stipple brush you would only need a little bit on your hand then barely put a little product on the tip of the brush and pat it on your face going in a circular motion and you will definitely get a more airbrushed look believe me it makes a difference in the brush itself for applying this makeup.

        I like this foundation. It covers well but, not a Cakey feel to it. More translucent coverage. Doesn't tend to break my face out also.

          I like very light weight coverage and this fits my complexion perfectly. Not sure about the bottle design though.

          Although pricey, this makeup doesn't oxidize and darken as your wear it through out the day. My number one problem is that my complexion is very light, and when I initially put on makeup it matches, but by the end of the day it as darkened and I have a very clear makeup line on my jawbone... gross!

          This makeup is light, clean, easily blendable, and perfect :)

            I will never use any other foundation. They didn't have this at my local store so I bought another type of Napolean, but it was not good at all, and I paid $50 for it. This one, however is amazing. Covers so well. I use a stipling brush.

            Overall, it's a great foundation. I have tried everything out there. Smashbox, benefit, mac, clinique, etc. I went in looking to try something new because I am never fully satisfied with anything I purchase. One of the employees understood my frustration to never find anything that just fits me. He knew exactly what he wanted to use on me... so he pulled the sheer genius. He put it on and instantly my skin looked amazing. Absolutely no need for a bronzer, powder, setter, anything. You can use it as a concealer for under the eyes, which works amazing. I'll give it a few more wears and see if I still feel the same about it. The price was just outrageous and I hope it's worth my money!
