Most Helpful Positive Review Very Nice Foundation!
I absolutely love trying foundations, so after seeing a lot of hype over this foundation after it initially launched, I decided to get it. First off, even though the foundation does come with a standard 1 oz. of product, like most liquid foundations do, it wasn't a major deal with me because of the price being so low. I don't mind it having a doe foot applicator to it, as I find that it makes the foundation very easy to apply overall. This foundation definitely sets to a Demi-matte finish, so setting it with powder is a definite must. Due to the first ingredient in this foundation, which is a common ingredient in a lot of foundations, you will get a noticeable type of scent that reminds me of the Wet n Wild foundation. However, the scent become faint after you apply it onto your face, and I don't notice it at all after a a short while, so it's not a scent that lingers throughout the day okay. The shade that I use is #10, and it works fine for me, but I have seen that the line has launched new shades on their actual websites, so I do plan to try the shade 9.5 in the future, to see jut how that will match me as well. In regards to the foundations lasting power, it all has to do with the powder that you use to set it with. Because, all setting powders definitely aren't created the same, so if your regular setting powder doesn't work best with this foundation then try another one. For this foundation go wear all day on me without even needing any touch ups, I set it with Ben Nye's Banana Powder. And, the foundation stats flawless on me all day until I take it off.
I like that I can get medium-to-full coverage with it, however, I still do apply concealer around my eye area for extra coverage and for eyeshadow priming as well. Also, I do feel that this foundation is great to use for any occasion, as it performs really well, and I really happen to like the type of bottle packaging that it comes in as well.
Most Helpful Critical Review Really let down
Let me start by saying that I love and use the Estee Lauder Doublewear Stay-in-place foundation typically. BUT, I have been searching for a cheaper option to use for everyday purposes, due to the price increases on the Estee Lauder Doublewear line. I just Can not afford to buy it religiously. So... I bought this foundation after reading excellent reviews on this site as well as others, and loved to hear that many were comparing it to the Tarte Shape Tape foundation. I have oily skin and read that this foundation has a pretty, matte finish and helps control oil. Well... I have had no luck after a week of use, using different primers and setting techniques, hoping to find a good combo. (I apply it to my skin with the doe foot applicator then buff it out with a buffing foundation brush, to get the best coverage.) Nothing has worked to keep this foundation from breaking down around my nose and T-zone, where I get oiliest throughout the day. It settles in creases and lines throughout the day and oxidizes on my skin, also. I also have had quite a few large, painful breakouts since I've started using this foundation. With all of this said, I will be returning the product.

This is the perfect medium-to-full coverage foundation and the price is unbeatable. It's perfect for oily/combo skin.
Absolutely love this foundation. One of the only ones I use
Hannah from Oklahoma
Love this foundation. If you are a germaphobe be warned - the applicator is not very sanitary. They definitely need a pump. Full coverage and matte but not too drying. I have normal/combo skin. It looks great and i've never had any issues
Amazing for oily skin!
jenniferdanz_ from FL
I've been using this foundation for years and decided to try another foundation. That only made me realize how amazing this makeup revolution foundation is, especially for oily skin. With the right primer, this foundation will not budge- it even holds up in the Florida heat.
It made me breakout
Kat from Colorado Springs, CO
I really wanted this foundation to work, as I have very pale skin and finding my shade is difficult. I was excited that F0.2 was one of the closest matches I have found.
I have combination skin, and this foundation kept breaking up and coming off on my T zone, and would oxidize after a few hours, as well as settle in to my large pores and fine lines around my eyes. It feels like wearing a sticky or cakey mask on your face, like it doesn't fully dry.
I tried numerous kinds of moisturizers, primers, serums, setting sprays/powders, and routines but kept running into the same problems. After a few uses my skin started to itch after wearing it, and after each wear it caused some pretty hefty acne breakouts.

I love this foundation!! It works great for me and it is very full coverage!!
Not for dry skin
Cristal from Dallas, TX
I absolutely loveee this foundation, it blends great and covers imperfections yet still looks so natural, like my skin but better, but unfortunately, my skins been on the drier side due to the time of year and the foundation really emphasizes the dry patches on my face even though i moisturize before hand. I will be returning it, due to not being able to wear it at the moment. But would definitely recommend for my girls who are more on the oily side. Ill go back to it for the spring/summer time.
I love this Foundation!
Tina C. from Queens, New York
I find that this Foundation is best used with a primer first and blended out with a beauty sponge.
Not bad tbh(Shade F11.2)
Janie from Los Angeles
I really like this foundation. I wish I had a lighter shade b/c I got this during summer and I was very tan then. This paired with the e.l.f jellypop primer gives me a long lasting finish.
Not for me!
ECGOMEZ from Dallas, TX
Wanted to try a new foundation and I heard this was a good option for the price. I have oily skin and for the most part this product did not make me shiny through out an 8 hour day at work. Its very silky and applies with great coverage... BUT after 5 hours it started to move around and became cakey in some areas of my face. Then my pores became pretty noticeable. Its not a bad foundation...just not for me.
elizabeth from Rosenberg Tx
so i went into ulta and heard tremendous hype for this product. so my first instinct was to get it. but i had such a hard time finding my shade. i had to go to the store 4 time to find my shade! as for the actual product it looks abut cakey on me. blends out okay, it's pretty mediocre. safe to saw i won't be repurchasing any time soon
best. foundation. ever.
Bre from Ohio
I have been using this foundation for around a year now. it's AMAZING coverage, beautiful finish and cheap!
I have cystic acne and rosacea and it covers everything. before this foundation, I have tried everything and nothing covered all of my "problems" like this one.

ONLY foundation I will use for the rest of my life!
Sab from Las Vegas, NV
I had never heard of this brand before, but I saw that it was on sale on a window shopping trip to Ulta and I picked one up. HOLY CANNOLI THIS IS THE BEST FOUNDATION I'VE EVER USED! It's so discrete and makes my skin look flawless without looking cakey, and it applies well with either a foundation brush or a beauty blender. I just empties mine and I'm heading to #ulta right now to buy another because I loved it that much!
Absolutely would recommend

Best foundation I have ever had. A little goes a long way and you still get great coverage. It doesn't dry out my skin, it blends amazing.
very good foundation
Goldenbabee707 from Nevada
i ordered this foundation online and i don't know if it was me or what but it was very easy to color match. i saw Robert Welsh review this particular foundation so i was very excited when i found out that it was so cheap. its very lightweight. haven't put it on my face yet but i did put it on my arm to see if it were blendable bcuz i read alot of reviews that said that it wasn't. but it was! i put the teensiest tiniest amount on my arm and it was so easy to blend i have no idea why everyone it hating on this particular foundation will review more once i do use this on my face.

smells like paint
Shelby from Kentucky
This foundation is a good choice, just not my favorite. It takes dipping the applicator back in the bottle like 10 times for it to grab enough product off of it for a full face. I enjoy it best mixing it with another foundation. Medium-full coverage.
I would not recommend this product
Di from Concord NC
I returned it customer service was great

I was very surprised with this foundation. It's for sure full coverage and doesn't feel heavy. It gives my face a nice smooth natural look and I have small pimples. Def will recommend!
sam from wisconsin
i was so surprised by how much i like this product! it matches my skin tone so well, which never happens for me except with fenty. i wasn't crazy about the applicator but it's ok, you get used to it. i love the full coverage this provides! it doesn't feel heavy at all and makes my skin look amazing. for the price i would absolutely recommend trying it out if you're not sure! i'll be buying this again
I loved it
April from Missouri
I have oily skin and lots of pores around the nose and cheek area. this foundation does great at coving and last all day.
Good coverage, but texture central.
Jenn from NY
I used this a couple of times after I bought it, and while for the price point the coverage was good (more medium/buildable than full) it accentuated so much texture that I didn't even know I had. (The applicator also wasn't my favorite.) It wasn't longwear at all, which I need. I noticed it starting to settle within an hour, and after 4-5hrs of wear it started sliding off my face/rubbing on my mask. If you're just taking pictures and then taking it off I would reccomend, other than that, I would not reccomend.
