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.

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

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

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

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

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....

I gave this product 3 stars because it has safe ingredients. As far as the product is though I was let down by how oily this foundation makes your skin look and feel. I like some of their 9ther products but will not be buying the foundation again.
Color chart way off
M from Hockley, TX
I purchased 2 and I should have just bought 1 to make sure the color and coverage were good for me. I will keep them as I can gift one to family or friend that is lighter skin toned. I will keep the other for an under eye highlighter.
Mallarysue from Arkansas
I wouldn't wish this product on my worst enemy. It smells absolutely horrible and goes on terrible with fingers, a brush or a sponge. Not to mention it separates on my skin. Very disappointed.
Srob6 from Forest City pa
Ok so I bought the shade that Burt's bees shade finder matched me with natural beige and it was too dark but I loved the foundation stayed on all day new finish not too dewy . So I went out bought a too light shade ivory now I mix them to get prefect shade ! So now I have prefect foundation! So please Burt's Bees don't stop making this foundation!! I have always use Burt's bees lip products but I am new to the foundation. And I love it.Thanks Burt's bees.
Very nice product.
Lynn from Eugene, OR
I tried it because I use other Burt's Bees products and love them. I am working from home until schools open again, and I looked awful on Zoom. So, I bought all new makeup. I use a brush to put it on. Even after having it on all day, it doesn't settle into lines. Comes off nicely with a light cleanser and wash rag. Others commented on a smell, it smells like foundation to me.
Best Natural Liquid Foundation
Naturalmakeuplover from Ontario
I have tried a few different natural liquid foundations, and the Burt's Bees Goodness Glows Liquid Foundation is by far my favourite. The coverage that it provides is wonderful and it sets well with their powder foundation. It smells good and has all-natural ingredients that are good for your skin. I highly recommend this product.
Auds from Arizona
the patchiest, cakiest foundation i have ever tried. if you use a sponge, have any peach fuzz on your face, or like having your makeup blend, forget it. i used all my usual primers, concealers, and powders and it was so hard to work with. 0/10
would not recommend to a friend
