    Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

    I used this product with the bare minerals skin smoothing brush and it applied well, but I really had to work it in. Also best applied in a very thin layer. If you are looking for something more full coverage or even medium I would look for a different foundation but I like a light coverage. It didn't leave me looking to dewy but I have very dry skin if you had normal to oily I would avoid as it might look to greasy on your skin. It wore nice all day for me I only set the areas that trend to crease on me and I didn't have a problem with creasing.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

      I've had this product for about a year (Purchased when Ulta was giving out the free full-size bottles as a promotion) and it's one of my favorite foundations. I love the color selection. You can easily find what matches you.

      Because it's a serum foundation, a little goes a long way. If you have oily skin, you might want to steer clear if you aren't ready to prime your face in the correct way. I primed and set this foundation to the max and I had good wear out of it.

      If you have Normal/Dry skin, this is the perfect foundation for you. Very Moisturizing!

        Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

        I took Accutane in the past, so my complexion is very dry and I have acne scars on my cheeks. My skin is also pretty red around my nose and mouth. When I apply this foundation, there's absolutely no redness or signs of acne scars. The color and texture is completely evened out. Also, the fact that this line's porcelain shade is a TRUE porcelain is just amazing. A gem hard to find in drugstore foundations. It's important to use this as a SERUM foundation and use a VERY small amount and then build, which may not even be necessary. Its finish is very dewy, but the shine goes down after applying your contour and blush powders. I personally welcome the shine with open arms because it is the only foundation that I've found that can give my dried out skin a luminous finish in the winter (I use liquid bareminerals in the summer).

        This is a GREAT foundation overall, but if your skin produces excess oil throughout the day, this is not what you're looking for.

            Horrible product made by a great company. I tried a few different colors but couldn't get past how oily and thin the products were. Also I was completely disappointed when returning this to try different shades, how disgusting the store display was! Product all over everything, items for sale were open and there were only a few foundations in a few lipsticks everything else was missing. The store clerk also didn't seem to be bothered by it when I brought it to her attention. I use other Shea Moisture products and will be happy to order everything online - the store displays should literally be removed…and this was at more than one store.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

              I tried various foundations and some come off as weak, too light where it doesn't do any coverage, or goes away after a few hours. I've started using Shea Moisture facial cleansers, toner, and mask (Black Soap) and it has been working great for me. I wanted to switch to their foundation too. I don't have to use a lot for a lot of coverage and it stays on a while without needing to reapply until many hours later. I was using Maybelline Dream Mousse before and prefer the Shea moisture now.

              Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

              I am an avid shea moisture fan so I was super excited to try the cosmetics line for the first time. On the bottle it clearly says "serum foundation" and "use on drop" I've read a lot of review s of people complaining it's too liquid and too runny and too greasy. Hello people. Serum! What does serum mean to you?? Of course it's liquidy and moisturizing it's main ingredient is shea butter! Use very sparingly! I have oily skin so I use one drop and go from there. I also Top it with the shea moisture powder foundation to get rid of shine but I'm sure any translucent powder would work fine. My skin feels great with this on and when I take it off. Love the ingredients. Yes it's a bit pricey for me but hey Im happy knowing I'm paying more for less toxin chemicals going into my bloodstream.

                  I am beyond pleased with this foundation! I'm so fair that the lightest shade in most foundations is still a few shades too dark for me, as well as having yellow undertones when I need pink. This foundation is actually light enough, with the pink undertone I need. It blends perfectly and is a flawless match. I have dry skin and this is just what I need in a foundation. It's pleasantly moisturizing, and when paired with the matching powder, it's a flawless look.
