Most Helpful Positive Review Surprisingly good
I had to switch foundations after realizing my Kat Von D foundation was actually EATING my skin, making my breakouts a lot worse, and causing really deep cystic pimples/staph infections (I'd get pimples, pop them PROPERLY then after applying foundation to cover them they'd turn into these giant flat scabby patches that would take over a month to heal and would scar a lot) I've got very dry skin with a slightly oily t-zone and the KVD foundation would "crack", settle into my pores, and cling horribly to my dry patches, so obviously I needed to switch foundations but couldn't afford to shell out $40+ for another high end foundation, so after reading a lot of reviews I gave this one a shot, and am seriously impressed. I'll give you my whole routine since some people seem to be having issues with it, I start off with NYX's honey dew me up primer (which is also GREAT as a night serum and has seriously helped my skin) and a little spritz of NYX's matte setting spray on my t-zone to help control oil, then buff a pump and a half into my face and neck with it cosmetic's airbrush foundation brush (it works nicely with a beauty blender too, but goes on sheerer this way), set it using the KVD powder foundation, generously spray with the NYX matte setting spray, then gently pat my whole face with a damp beauty blender (this step isn't necessary, but it helps merge the powder and cream together to keep it from looking cakes and gives me a really pretty flawless finish) I did my makeup at 9 am, and it's 7:30 now and my foundation still looks flawless, it covers blemishes and discoloration completely without needing any concealer, it's doesn't cling to my dry patches at all, doesn't settle into my pores, and holds up beautifully. It's doesn't crack or cake up like my KVD foundation would, and stays put if you have to blot it. My only complaints would be the VERY limited shade range, and it does oxidize a little so if you're between shades go with the lighter one.
Most Helpful Critical Review Makes Pores Look Awful!
I really wanted to like this foundation, and I did upon the initial application. It went on smoothly, was easy to blend, and seemed to cover a decent amount. However, after less than an hour of wear, I noticed the foundation oxidized very badly and looked orange on my very fair skin (and I bought the lightest shade they make, 00A Porcelain). Also, the foundation had settled into my pores and made them look awful! I don't consider myself to be someone with very bad or noticeable pores at all, and I use a skincare regimen daily, but this foundation made it look like I was covered in blackheads! And that was with using the pore-minimizing Porefessional primer by Smashbox. Additionally, after less than an hour of wear, the foundation had worn off along my jaw/lower cheekbone and my redness was peeking through badly. To sum up, I liked how this foundation looked when I first applied it, but it just got worse and worse the longer I wore it (which was less than an hour!).

This foundation is amazing! Definitely full coverage! Leaves my skin looking smooth and glowing ❤️
I love this foundation
Miss Love from NYC
I've been on the hunt for a great foundation. I've usually settled for drug store funds and this one is in drugstores but I looked at reviews and decided to get from ulta. I am impressed and highly satisfied with this. I love the way I look . I use a primer from dr Brandt and then dab little dots of this under my eyes and eyelid to conceal and use a blender sponge. I am highly satisfied with the full coverage of this that doubles as a concealer. I dot the rest of my face and use sponge . Leaves my face beautiful
Two thumbs up!
Manders from Kankakee, IL
You get a full coverage effect without it looking too heavy! Love it!
Yes, at LAST!!!
Lovelydust from Mableton, GA
I use this as my everyday foundation. It matches my skin perfectly, better than ANY foundation I have ever used. I am so happy I found it. It blends easily, leaving me with a smooth, glowing finish. I'm really loving the Milano brand right now. I hope they make a skin care line so my beauty life can be complete. This foundation is a must have.
Love love love!
Literallyhayez from El Cajon
I don't mean to sound like an exaggerated annoying person. But this foundation works sooo well for me. And I have very oily skin. It's got very good coverage and blends so smoothly. Putting too much on at one time though makes it look caked in the end. So if you need to go lightly then add layers. Blends in with skin sooo good. I love it.
🐈 from Heck
I usually love everything from Milani, esp the lip sticks, but this isn't it sis. It settles into my skin and just doesn't really look good. The foundation settled into my pores and made it look terrible.
Will never buy again
Kay from Massachusetts
If you have any acne, scars, clogged pores, or textured skin this foundation is not for you. This enhanced every flaw I had on my skin that I didn't even know I had. Would not say this is a full coverage and is cakey. Also makes your face feel disgusting and broke out from it. Used it twice to give it a second chance and just disappointed me again.
Made my pores look HORRIBLE
Ash from Midland, TX
I really liked how it applied. However after a couple of hours it changed oxidized and changed color quite dramatically and also made my pores stand out so much. My pores aren't even that bad but this foundation makes it look like I have holes all over my face and I don't like the way it looks. Disappointing.
Not that impressed
Mack from Kentucky
The formula doesn't last and leaves my skin greasy. I wouldn't consider it full coverage, so I don't have much use for it as a concealer. Decent for a "drug store" price but doesn't compare to high end foundations.
My go to
Amanda from Missouri
This is my go to. I have dry skin but I like a matte look. This doesn't get cakey.
cheyenne from pennsylvania
i, honestly, bought this because i didn't want to spend the money on my regular foundation, and i have slightly clearer skin now as an adult, so i understand everyone won't have the same results, but i LOVE this foundation, great coverage, never creases after powder, and has such a soft appearance. hands down what i will be buying from now on rather then my regular 42 dollar foundation.
Move Quick! Great Coverage
SYD from Seattle,WA
This is definitely a full coverage foundation. It does seem to dry fast so apply in sections and with damp beauty blender for the best results. For a full foundation it feels very light on your face!!! YAY
Great product for an even GREATER price!!!
Mrs. Hernandez from Dallas, Tx
I have tried different foundations in the past from Mac, to Too Faced n even tried Wet N Wild. This one is by far is the best with great coverage n great price!!!
Alexis from California
I love the coverage of this foundation and the shade matched my skin really well but it breaks me out like no other. It's a very nice foundation just not for my Acne prone skin.
I would NOT buy this product again.
Lynn from St. Louis, MO
I don't like the way this product smells.
angie from los angeles
This is so good! It covers a lot without being heavy and a little goes a surprisingly long way. Without adding powder, it lasted all day and thank god it has a pump! Overall very worth it my only complaint is the cap being a little flimsy but thats not a problem
Love this product
Maria from ohio
I love this product and use it on a daily basis. Good coverage without being cakey.
Kt from New york
This product provides natural looking full face coverage. It goes on smoothe and feels light on your face
Love the coverage
Danielle from Menifee, CA
I loved the coverage, the formula is creamy and smooth. A little does go a long way. My first time using it I didn't really realize how cakey it would be because you don't need a lot and I used a lot. It's amazing though, use the concealer with it and you're gonna feel like the ****!!! ❤️
One of my favs
Melissa from PA
My new go to for foundation. Easy to match color and has a great coverage without feeling cakey or heavy on the skin
Cori from Las Vegas NV
I am super pale and find it really hard to find a color that doesn't oxidize on me. My go to foundation is from Lancôme because drugstore brands never come close. Well, this one does. It's more coverage than Lancôme, it almost covers all of my freckles which is IMPRESSIVE. It's thick and definitely will be cakey if you put too much on. I wouldn't recommend for people with textured skin. I have very smooth skin so it goes on nicely, but I can see it bunching up on my nose.
Better than maybelline fit me by a long shot. Excited I tried this! Makes my skin look amazing.
Kat from CO
I shocked at how much I actually like this foundation. I usually wear IT powder foundation but need more coverage now. I really like the matte finish too.
It's alright !
Kay from Turlock
It's alright but I don't feel like it works for someone that has oily skin !
Dawno121 from Oklahoma
First of all, I work in the medical field. Masks, shields and sweat (those things make a girl hot and not in a good way!) are part of every day attire. This held up against all of this during an 8 hour shift! I did have a little rub off on my nose area, but that's it. Give this mighty bottle a try!
