        I had to return this product because it emphasized my dry skin more than anything I've ever tried. I really wanted it to work, since the shade matched my skin perfectly. It's a shame, but not every product works for everybody I guess.

            I originally wanted to get the "Too Faced 'Born this way'" in shade of nude, but the ulta I went too doesn't have it in stock. I asked one of the sales woman to help me pick out another foundation that's similar to the one I'm looking for and she recommended this product. I got the third to the lightest foundation.. which is way too light. I've asked her if she have another one a shade darker to my skin and she said that was it cause the one after it is gonna be too dark. Bought it and used it onced. I had to go to a different ulta to return it and get the one I originally wanted. The product itself is easy to blend and it is light but it just not match my skin color.

              First of all, this product is quite greasy(it made my skin feel uncomfortable...and just gross) it went on with medium coverage and sheered out to look like a thin layer of pigment on my face. The packaging is cool, but it leaks a lot. This product also gave me a lot of acne(I do have acne prone skin, but it was controlled before using this product) which was really annoying. This is the kind of product that gets on everything, you NEED to SET YOUR FACE or else it will melt off of your face throughout the day and get all over your clothes, hands, etc. This is not a product for combo/winter dry skin. It clings to anything that is dry on the face. Just and awful product for me.

                    Hello Jessica,

                    We would advise to shake the bottle with your finger over the nozzle instead of shaking the foundation with the cap on. When that happens that is what causes the bottle to erupt abruptly.
