Most Helpful Positive Review My new favorite foundation
I have been using this foundation for about a week and it has become my new favorite! I love that I can use 1 pump when I want a light to sheer look or 2 when I want more coverage. I suffer from acne and always go for full coverage foundation but they usually feel heavy and look cakey; not this one! It gives the coverage I want but looks natural; like my skin, only better. I also noticed that I am powdering my t-zone less throughout the day. I got shade M8 and it is a perfect match! On top of it all, I love that it has good-for-my-skin ingredients.
Most Helpful Critical Review Did not last all day
I have very oily skin and was soo disappointed after all of the hype that it would last all day but instead it smeared off my face by late afternoon.

I purchased this foundation with high hopes and was very disappointed. After two hours of wear, my forehead was oily...
Not matte as it says it is!
Nina from Texas
I was so disappointed in this product because I had been saving to buy it for such a long time and when I used it, it melted off and had to use a lot of setting powder to keep it in place somewhat!! I wish I could return it but I threw away the box!
Shine Free and Amazing
Tina from Columbus, Ohio
Beyond Matte is lightweight, has awesome coverage and controls shine giving your face natural beauty. I'm so glad I tried this product and highly recommend.
Semi-matte not a matte foundation
Dezmm16 from Tulsa
I have oily skin, and this makeup actually made it more oily. Read the fine print, it leaves more of a semi-matte finish. It leaves more of a shine when worn. It also caked up around my nose. I definitely expected more with the price. I will be going back to my Estée Lauder double wear.
I love it!
Great for oily/acne-prone skin from Delaware
I have tried so many different foundations for my oily, acne-prone skin and this is one that I will be sticking with! I have been using Jane Iredale's products for a couple of years now because of the natural ingredients to help avoid breakouts and this is by far my favorite! The coverage is buildable, from a more natural look to completely covering my acne spots and scars. Definitely recommend this product, so worth spending a couple extra dollars for great coverage and avoiding a break out.
disappointed from undisclosed
I was so excited to try this product! But the pump lid is horrible. When I first got this product, I must have pushed the pump down 50 times at least before I got any product out. And when it was dispensed it shot out in small amounts and then the top got stuck jammed down. So every time I push the pump down, it gets stuck, I barely get any product dispensed, and then I have to manually pull (which takes a ton of effort) the lid back up. I'm also not in love with the shade I purchased. I bought what I thought would be a good match per what I use from the pressed foundation and I it is WAY too light. I want to love this product because I LOVE Jane Iredale products, but I am so disappointed.
I finally found my foundation!
Marie from Dover, DE
I'm over 40 and this is the first liquid foundation I have found that doesn't make me look like a clown. I've used the pressed powder and tinted moisturizer, which I love, and when I received the M4 as a sample, I figured I'd give it a try. That was a bit too dark for my fair/light complexion, but one of the beauty consultants suggested M2 instead, and she was right. I have blond hair and blue eyes, and I don't look like I'm wearing paint when I put this on. It just looks natural, and smooths out my complexion. I don't even need concealer with it.
Goes on like a dream

I've been using this product for several months. I love how it blends in with my natural skin tone. It's buildable and natural looking. I've been liking the look applying it with my fingers lately.
Helps My Oily Complexion
Nat216 from York, PA
I have tried many different foundations (liquid, powder, sheer, full coverage, etc.) and this is the only one that seems to help control my oily skin. I would highly recommend this product.
Shayle from Okc
This is the best foundation I've ever had. It's light weight, reduced shine, stays on all day, and covers my redness and pores for a flawless finish. I love this product!
new fan of matte
golfgirl from West Palm Beach, FL
I have NEVER been one to buy a "matte" foundation as I am normal to dry and never oily. So, I was a bit hesitant to try this, AND it is a challenge to find a shade when you're considered "medium" but with pink undertones. This foundation in M8 absolutely works for me! It leaves a very photo-ready finish without looking dry (as I feared from a matte foundation). It definitely adjusts to my skin tone as well. It looks a tiny bit yellow when I dab it on, but it magically blends perfectly.
Not Worth the Expense
Robo from Iowa
Unfortunately the formula was way to sticky and shiny for my face. I was oily throughout the entire day and it wasn't even warm weather. The shade range was nice, but I will not be purchasing again.
SBfun from Portland
I love the way this foundation goes on and the coverage. The only thing I don't like is that the gold on the cap flakes off on my hand and ends up adding some unwanted sparkle on my face.
Amanda from undisclosed
I'm 39, starting to deal with aging skin and dryness. I knew that I wanted a matte foundation as to not accentuate old acne scars. At first I was confused when I tried the foundation, because it didn't seem very matte. I think the name, beyond matte might be a little misleading. However, when I looked online at the description, it does state that its semi-matte. So, I should've looked at that closer. I figured that I would need to send it back, but to my suprise it covered my imperfections and didn't accentuate them. So, I was very pleased with that. I'm still trying to figure out the best method for applying...I didn't like the beauty blender method, using a brush gave the best coverage but can look cakey if you're not careful with the brush. The color was pretty spot on. I purchased the lightest color available. For reference, I have auburn hair and a fair, neutral skin tone.
Light weight and high coverage
Chaiy from NY
This product is great, light weight foundation with high coverage!
One of my new favorite foundations!
ap23 from California
I love this foundation! It makes my skin glowy, without getting oily. It stays all day. People compliment me on my skin when I wear this. Please don't ever discontinue this product!
Clean and Pretty!
MelChilds from West Virginia, USA
I was very excited to try this new foundation! It did not disappoint. I love how this foundation feels on my skin. Also, I love the way I can build up the coverage, so that I can wear this foundation full coverage for an evening out or I can wear it light coverage for everyday wear. I have oily skin and I am able to wear this foundation for 6-8 hours without having to blot/touch-up my T-zone.
Very good product!
REWC from near Boston
I've just started my second bottle of this foundation, so obviously like it. I wear M4, and had the color matched at the retail store in Great Barrington, which was helpful as I would have chosen a lighter color. At first I thought the product might be too thick, but applying it with a brush makes all the difference. I splurged and bought the Iredale countour brush and really like it. I find the foundation can double as a concealer. However I still like a light moisturizer underneath. I like a medium coverage and find it lasts all day.
Beautiful and healthy foundation!
Steph88 from New York
So I've been searching for a healthy, natural and matte foundation with good-for-your-skin ingredients and finally found this foundation! The beauty advisor kindly sent me 3 different colors to try before I ordered it. I ended up with M6 which matched my golden undertone with light/medium skin well. The foundation gave me medium-full coverage and I felt healthy and happy knowing I was putting healthy ingredients on my skin. No breakouts from this whatsoever! Highly recommended!
Bridget76 from Columbia, MO
This foundation isn't long lasting. My oily skin is shining through already and I've only had it on for 2 hours. It's also impossible to blend it in the undereye area. For as much as it costs, it's a very disappointing product. I'm stuck with a full bottle that I probably won't use now.
Can't say enough good things!
1ttrium from Las Vegas, NV
I can't say enough good things about this release! The formulas (because I received two for trading purposes with the other being M14) are smooth with excellent color, they interacted very well with my skin tone and skincare routine. My favorite feature, which I discovered in removing the foundation, is that it really is gentle on skin- mine is easily irritated but I noticed that there was little to no irritation and redness after wearing. I enjoyed 13 best while using 14 on my my outer as contour and the results are wonderful. The cons are that at this point there's only 18 shades, later on hopefully there will be an expansion do that more people can try this great product!
Love Jane Iredale but hated this!
Dar from Florida
I have been using Jane I. makeup for 15 years and love it. This was awful though. I tried to wear this several times. I tried with and without primer, using my fingers, a beauty blender, and a foundation brush. No matter what I did it never 'set' on my skin. Not good coverage or wearability. Couldn't wait to wash it off each time I wore it. I'll stick with her pressed powder.
Great Product! Bad Dispenser!!
Nancy from undisclosed
Love the product!
Disappointed with the dispenser. While still having product in the bottle, the product no longer comes out using the pump. I had to resort to having to open the bottle to scoop the product from the inside wall. It should be designed like Liquid Mineral dispenser.
Alice from PA
I like this foundation. It is a good coverage, but a little more coverage than I usually use for a foundation.
Nouchka from undisclosed
I have been using this foundation for a few days now and i love the finish and how natural it looks despite having a good medium coverage. The application can be tricky and you have to work it very quickly. Also, you have to exfoliate your skin before overwise it will show any dry flakes. But this is ok for me since i can manage it. I only give this 4 stars is because THE SHADE RANGE IS TOO LIMITED. M1 is not a true porcelain shade and i don't consider myself as super fair. It would be super if there were more shades especially on the fairest scale with yellow undertones to conterract the redness many people with fair skin have.
