Most Helpful Positive Review Amazing finish and quality
This foundation provides gorgeous, flawless yet natural full coverage. It's non-greasy, yet gives your skin a healthy glow. The foundation does not cause white flashback in flash photography, and the shades it comes in are all realistic skin shades, which are difficult to find at the drugstore. The result is long-lasting, and will not crack or fade off.
For those who complain about the "weird smell," that's the scent of honey. The foundation does not contain perfume, so the scent you get is actually from the natural ingredients, and it fades almost instantly.
Most Helpful Critical Review Trying to love it, but...
I got this product thinking how amazing was to get a natural makeup. I don't use liquid make up, don't like them, I just use blush, lip gloss and eye shadow, got this makeup to wear on formal occasions.
-The coverage is good
-Color skin match is okey
-Love that is natural and not animal tested
-Hard to apply (I have dry skin, so I have to put my moisturize lotion and the makeup right after to get some moisture)
-Never saw the "glow", it actually looks mate (which is one of the reasons why I don't like makeup, don't like the look of a dry mate skin)
-Not a fan of the smell, but can endure it because is natural
- Gives me tiny acne and red spots every time I wear it :( (which is not often) . This is what is actually making me hate the product.

The smell only smells like organic ingredients

I love this foundation for school days! It gets the job done and you do not need a lot!
Tanamarin from Juneau, AK
Coverage and consistency is ok but I rarely use this product because the smell is so bad. It goes away after a few minutes when it dries but it's unpleasant putting it on.
Can't get past the smell
ChrisK96 from Minnesota
The smell is the absolute worst I've ever used for foundation. The coverage is ok. Ever once in a while my eyes will burn and water.
Mariajosie from tucson
I like the way it goes on BUT why does it smell the way it does. Legitimate question.
The smell dissipates but when you first dabnitnonto applicator it smells
Takes work but is beautiful!

The first few times I tried this I wasn' the happiest but decided to stick with it since it wasn't too bad. Only to realize that the reason it wasn't working well was my fault. I'm somebody who uses micellar water to cleanse my face. Sometimes I'll forget to wash it off with water. I was accidentally using micellar water right before putting this one my face. In conclusion, I would not recommend using any kind of product with oil in it before using this product! This morning I used it without putting anything on my face at all and it didn't cling to any dry patches. I absolutely love the finish and am ecstatic that it is such a natural product. I will leave an updated review if it breaks me out but so far my skin is looking clearer than before! :)
A Bit Disappointing
maggpie29 from Dallas, TX
I had high expectations for this foundation because I have had great success with other BB makeup products (cannot recommend the eyeliner and mascara highly enough!) Unfortunately, this foundation did not work well for me. I would describe the coverage as closer to medium than full. However, the most problematic thing for me about this foundation is the smell. It smells like sour sunscreen... Which is odd, because I don't think there is actually any sunscreen in it!
Pros: shade a good match (took quiz, didn't find it particularly comprehensive; it would be great if it could compare shades to other products; just happened to take a lucky guess)
Cons: light/medium coverage (not full), funny smell
First thoughts from Ohio
I agree with other reviews that the foundation unfortunately is not full coverage as advertised. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the healthy "glow" look it left on my face. I apply it with a damp beauty blender. I have a lot of redness that it doesn't quite cover but dims down, and it doesn't even look like I'm wearing any foundation at all, it just looks like the redness fading! It also is the first foundation I've tried that doesn't stain clothes and comes off very easily. I bought the color 1015 Buff.
So happy I found this!!

I found this foundation By accident. I was so excited to see that it was yellow based as most everything I try has always been pink based. I have dry skin with some fine lines and wrinkles starting around the eyes. I love a natural look that's not pasty or chalky looking. This foundation fits the bill! It blends seamlessly with my skin and never looks dry or powdery. I've always loved Burt's bees baby products. I am so glad you've branched out into cosmetics.

Dry. Chalky. Yucky. Your skin will look like a lizard
I love it
TherealUltabeauty from IL
I love this foundation. In response to some other comments, it says in the description that it is cruelty free. And it is great for my skin. I'm allergic to most ingredients in most foundations, but this is great and doesn't bother my skin at all
Amy1999 from California, LA
so, apparently it has a pump, mine didnt have one and it made my skin dry, do not waste your money on this!
Better with time
ATR2020 from undisclosed
I ordered Ivory because most beige choices in makeup end up looking orange on my skin (I'd say just a bit less pale than Ivory's perfect match). This foundation looks better after it has had some time to blend with my skin's natural oils. By at least 100%! You can't tell that the shade is wrong at all within an hour or so. I absolutely love this, and my skin is smoother at night when I wash my face. Definitely my favorite.
Not happy with color pallet
Jackie 27 from Delaware
Why is everything yellow based? Some people have pink tones.
Won't buy until pallet changes
Worst foundation ever
318ug from WI
Bought this as it says it glows/ well not so, I used it and my face looked like a dry mess, very dry looking, finish was chalky looking, sat in every wrinkle, pore....etc. Bad bad. Never buy it again.
Match made in heaven for oily skin!
mahandi from DC
Love this! My skin is so sensitive so I have to be very careful with skincare and make-up ingredients. I'm combo-oily and fair to light, and this foundation is a home run for me. YES, a bit dry, but I mix this with a bit of moisturizer or sunscreen and rub in like a BB cream... stays ALL day, looks natural, shade range is good! I'm usually the lightest shade in most drugstore lines, but actually had to go from ivory to buff for spring/summer. And there is a smell, not pleasant, but not unbearable, and it dissipates rather quickly.
I love it
Kaitlyn from North Carolina
I have oily skin but in the fall and winter it's not as bad, I see this being amazing for that time of year when it's not so hot and humid. I love the coverage too
Jess from Silver Spring, MD
when i bought this, i was under the impression it was cruelty free. now i learn it may not be. which kinda sucks. the product itself isn't good, it isn't bad. it's pretty thick, and doesn't blend easily. and it wipes off not even halfway throughout the day. okay coverage. i've certainly had better foundations on my face before.
worst foundation ever
MarthaN from undisclosed
This formula is terrible. Does not blend well with sponge or brush. It cracks and melts off. And its not stackable and does not retouch well. Truly disappointed.
Jelly from Texas
I really do love the finish with this foundation it makes me feel and look young ,even tho I'm 19. It just makes me dewy and just a nice finish
Jules from Canada
This makeup is so thin it took a lot to cover.
In places with a lot of texture like pores acne and fine lines it doesn't cover well at all. So now it's been on for almost 5 hours and it's quite oily and rubs off very easily.
Laur from CO
I got this foundation because I love Burt's bees other products. I'm not sure if it is the foundation itself or because I got the wrong shade, but it was super noticeable on my face. I took it off right away.
sdh81 from Raleigh NC
Bought the shade cocoa today and I'm in love. I am African American with a dark brown complexion and this blends in perfectly. It's very light weight but has great coverage. Burts has a new customer, will definitely repurchase!!

This smells horrible and turns oompa loompa orange
Dawnie from Long Island NY
I was so hesitant to buy...I'm very skeptical of what I put on my face...I've always used Clinique, Bare minerals and It....Because I love Burts Bees too I wanted to try...its very nice ...I Do Not like foundation...so i think this is great....its a light medium coverage..i applied with fingers....i moisturized my skin first....and it hasn't caked or went in fine lines....it like very natural .. covers but still natural..which I love...the smell is not as strong as I've heard others say.. .I say Try it if you like very light natural makeup....
