Most Helpful Positive Review This blew me away!
I tried this product in-store after an Ulta employee told me they had an orientation about the product and that it was worth a try. I was curious about the foundation but was hesitant. Either way, I tried it and was STUNNED by how well shade TG6 matched my skin. It blended right in.
So, I bought it, took it home, and tried it on the next day when I went to school. The foundation gave me amazing matte coverage with very little effort and the concealer wand is a neat little bonus, although I don't use it much for that. It held up outstandingly well in the hot South Florida humidity and did a really good job controlling my oils. At the end of the night, my forehead was only very mildly dewy instead of the oil slick it usually can be.
What I really like is that it's matte but doesn't make my face feel tight and it also feels surprisingly light. Sometimes I forget I have the stuff on. If I want a more "natural" look, I'll apply it with a sponge and for a more flawless look, I'll use a kabuki brush. Sometimes I'll just apply the foundation, bronzer, mascara, and lipgloss and I am good to go. I've had no breakouts or side effects from using it, but I do advise to wear sun-protection while wearing during the day due to a few of the ingredients, which can make skin sensitive to the sun.
Long story short: this is currently now my holy grail foundation for my oily-combo skin. I love it better than my Fenty Pro Filt'r and it does everything I need it to do without fuss. Pur came through with this one.
Most Helpful Critical Review So dry
This product has great reviews and I was really excited to try it out. I have dry skin, and this foundation dried me out so much. It looked great when I first put it on. After about an hour my face started hurting it was so dry. This foundation just pulled all the moisture out of my skin. I know it is Matte, but it dried so much that my skin just started looking really cakey and flakey. By hour four in this foundation I had to take it off. I have tried so hard to like this foundation. I have tried multiple different primers and nothing helps. I have used it in many different ways (From full face to just as a concealer), and it is always very drying and just looks cakey after a couple hours. Also this foundation oxidizes on my skin very easily. I have worn this at least ten different times and I always end up looking cakey and orange. I am finally giving up on this foundation and just accepting that it isn't for me...

Had it for about a month, wear once or twice a week. My skin is mostly dry, a bit flaky, except for my chin, which is somewhat oily. Applied with a brush and goes on smoothly, but might do better with a damp beauty blender. Very matte and even. Bought LN2 using only online comparison and no previous matches to compare with; would go with a cool tone if I bought again and maybe a shade lighter. From 6 feet away, it looks great! Not so much closer; it makes my fairly youthful face look years older. After about an hour, it's highlighted every fine wrinkle I had no idea I had. Eep, right? It sucks up moisture and kind of exacerbates any flakiness; moisturizer and primer help much even if you really go to town. For the areas of my face that aren't dry or flaky, however, it still looks pretty good even hours later and it doesn't transfer easily unless you rub at it. I'm not sure how it does with sweat, but I have to wash twice to get it all off; it probably does okay if you're moving around. Overall: terrible for flakiness, so careful if you have drier skin, and it might make wrinkles more noticeable, but if those aren't concerns of yours, it's a nice product and pretty beginner friendly if you're looking for a starting point and foundation you can build up a bit. Mine is probably going to be relegated to concealer for the time being, since it just doesn't do so well for my whole face. I probably would have returned it and tried something else if I had paid full price, but I got it half-off on sale, so I don't mind holding onto it.
OMG, love this foundation! Great coverage w/o being thick
Angie from Fairfax
This foundation goes on so smooth, you don't need a lot (1 pump) and it covers up everything and makes it look very natural, not thick/cakey. The color does not oxidize, it matches my skin perfectly (I'm usually in between other foundation colors). It does not settle in lines either. I've tried lots of foundations and this is my fav, found it on a ulta beauty steal day and could not be happier!
One of my favorites
Jazzy from Monterey
I'm definitely a foundation junkie and this foundation made my skin look great. I have dry skin and this didn't over dry my skin at all. Just make sure to use a hydrating primer when using and you'll be golden. My skin looked photoshopped and flawless.
Terrible for dry skin
Amber from Kentucky
This was suggested to me by an Ulta associate to help combat my dry skin. This is awful for dry skin. It makes my face look even worse. It's almost like a powder consistency once you try and blend it in and makes my face look dry and cakey. Even with pore minimizing primer it makes my already large pores look bigger. Definitely do not recommend.
Peach from AZ
I bought this during the 21 days of beauty because I know RawBeautyKristi loves it BUT I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did. I LOVE THIS! For me, it lived up to the hype. I don't use the doe foot application but I do use this as concealer and it's just great. I sometimes only need one layer.
I would buy this foundation again
Jessika from Miami FL
I love this foundation be is also a concealer!!
Better than expected
SarahP from NY
I really enjoy this foundation as it leaves my skin with a nice glow all day without falling apart on my face. I only wished it didn't transfer as much as it does onto my mask. It's super easy to apply with either my fingers or sponge.
Pur is my favorite product from ULTA. I use the whole line.

OH NO no no no...
AnonaMEss from MI
In my 40s with dry skin this foundation was TERRIBLE!! I looked older it sank into my skin in the most horrible way, it was one of those that I knew IMMEDIATELY was a no no no.. I don't know what else to say to help someone else out.. It was dry it sat on my skin and emphasized texture and lines (which I don't have many of) and was one of the worst foundations I have tired. I have to many foundations because of my YOUTUBE watching which is why I tried this one in the first place, I would compare with the bounce and blur by beauty blender for coverage but I like the beauty blender so much more, my favorites are este launder double wear nude, Lancôme your skin but better, revlon candid..I list some of those because I am sure preference in what you like in a foundation has everything to do with how you will like this one.
I bought this during the beauty steals at the half off price (never ever would this be worth full price EVER to me!) and still returned it because of how bad it was. Every time I looked in the mirror I just thought how dry it looked and how I looked like it was sucking the life out of my skin. Maybe it is simply down to skin dryness and if you have dry skin it looks horrible but if you have nice hydrated skin the experience might be better, must be why some people love it..?
Michele C from Kenner, Louisiana
I love how easy this foundation is to apply. I like the full coverage without looking overdone. I have very oily skin and loved the fact that this foundation lasted all day.

Facial foundation and concealer
Thick consistency like it acts as foundation and concealer
bella from Edinburg, Texas
I noticed it was thicker than expected, great consistency. Definitely gave me full coverage, loved the 2 in 1 formula.
I don't know how I lived without this
L0Dvs from Houston
I used it as a concealer. It is hydrating but covers all my dark circles
Do not use on dry skin-oily will love!
Mel from Oregon
This was recommended to me from an ulta associate due to my dry skin and told me that this is perfect for a hydrated and a dewy luminous look. This foundation is the furthest from that and looks terrible on my dry skin. It is extreamly drying and after an hour of wearing looks Cakey, powdery, creasy, and uncomfortable because of incredibly drying this is. Even after taking it off, its sucked out all my moisture and leaves me with dehydrated old looking skin. I'd give this a negative score if I could.
Simply the best!
Shelb from Grand Blanc, MI
I have combination skin (oily in the summer and more dry in the winter) which makes finding a foundation a bit more difficult. I have used many brands of foundation over the years and I always have a problem with the foundation either being extremely drying, or making my skin look just too shiny. While many people may attribute these problems directly to the foundation, it does play a part but your skin care routine also plays a factor in how your foundation sits on your skin and the effect it has on your skin. Anyway, this foundation with my currently skin care routine is simply perfect! It blends in well whether I am using for light or full coverage. A big plus is that it is cruelty free!
Summer from Los Angeles
Looks great when first applied. I use Laura Mercia powder and Milano make it last setting spray and it still completely rubs off when you touch it. This is a HUGE PASS especially because we have to wear masks and you can literally see where your masks sits on your face. It doesn't wear well at all. Looks great on for the first hour-two but that's the best you're going to get out of this foundation. This is not full coverage enough to use as a concealer. Drugstore foundations are better than this.
Covers good and lightweight
Angie from Monterey
I would buy it again
Wow just Wow
mmlopez from Miami
At first I was skeptical when the Ulta employee recommended this foundation. I tried it on and it looked flawless, my husband even complimented me on my face! Love it!!!
Jen from Ohio
Bought this during the Ulta sale and instantly fell in love. I have very dry, dehydrated skin and have a hard time finding foundation that doesn't either immediately or eventually look awful. So far this has stayed looking gorgeous all day. Highly recommend.
I'm obsessed with this foundation
Sensitive Skin Gal from Nashville, TN
I love this foundation so much. I've tried soooo many foundations - expensive, drug store, all over the board, and this is by far my favorite. I got this foundation as a sample in a monthly subscription box and was so shocked with the outcome. I have extremely sensitive skin and this is one of the only foundations that doesn't irritate my skin. The coverage is perfect. It looks so natural. It lasts all day. I could go on and on. I'll be buying this foundation for the foreseeable future!
Not a huge fan
RM from Columbus, OH
Matches well and feels good on skin

Matches well and feels good on skin!
Great coverage but slides right off
Lopez2002 from OC, CA
I wanted to love this since I got it on sale. I normally use Estée Lauder double wear and never have any issues. That's the one foundation that works great with my skin. While using the Pur my face feels more oily then usual. I don't want to give up on it just yet. I'm going to try it out with a different primer, and use an oil control moisturizer to see it that helps.
Broke me out
Jackie from Milwaukee, WI
When I first got this fondation I was so excited because the color match was perfect and I loved the coverage when I put it on (I used a beautyblender). But after a few hours of wear, it became splochy on my face and was breaking down, I tired it a couple times with different primers, but that didn't seem to matter. I have dry skin so I never set my makeup, maybe that would of helped? But the biggest issue is that I started to break out from this fondation, big whiteheads, which I almost never get (I get cystic acne mostly). The search for a perfect fondation continues!
RobinMarie from NY
I apply with a damp sponge and it looks flawless. Dries down nice I only need to powder my t-zone and it stays in place all day. Definitely my favorite foundation
