    Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

    Thought I'd try something new, not a fan. This stuff is very soupy. Coverage is very thin and I prefer a beauty blender over brush, but this probably worked best with fingers.

      Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

      I usually apply my foundation with sponges, brushes, and clean hands. It blended very well for me. I have fairly good skin (like and 8.5 out of 10) so coverage is something I do not have to build up. My go to is the Benefit Hello Flawless Foundation which is comparable to a BB/CC type of coverage. This product is definitely comparable. I saw comments about the product, referencing how "oily it is". On the contrary, I believe it's quite moisturizing and I have combination skin. I like to have that natural healthy skin tone without having to use highlighters and this product definitely does that for me. It doesn't leave me oily. It dries quite nice and doesn't feel cakey. So for those who like good coverage without masking your face, this product just might work for you. :)

        Comments about SheaMoisture Weightless Shea Serum Foundation:

        I use a sponge to apply my makeup or brushes and this product definitely blended well for me. I've never been one to wear too much foundation or pile on different layers. I am a BB or CC cream lover. My go to foundation is the Benefit Hello Flawless and I honestly felt it was comparible to it. I have combination skin and even though the product is what many consider "oily," i personally believe it to be moisturizing. At first it feels that way, but it does dry great. I like my skin looking healthy and plump without using highlighters and this product helped me keep that natural skin tone. I have fairly goog skin (like and 8 out of 10). So for those that just want something natural that doesn't dry up your skin with patches of foundation, I believe this could help. I love it!

          I have normal skin, with slight oil on/around my nose.

          This product is awful. It is *super* greasy, won't set, settles into pores, does not wear for more than 1.5-2 hours before it is a disaster. Does not apply nicely. Buyer beware!

            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.

              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.
