Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE THIS
I have super dry skin, so I have to mix a liquid glow with this foundation or moisturizer heavily before application. But it's worth it for the skin-like look and long lasting application I get from this product. I do recommend buying a shade lighter because it does oxidize a shade or two darker after a couple minutes (see photo). I already repurchased this!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good, but it has a strong fragrance
This foundation does need to be applied and blended quickly. It dries down matte and stays put once dry. I was impressed that the matte finish lasted all day. I have light ivory skin but a cooler undertone. The 02 shade was too dark for me. There was also a strong baby powder fragrance that I don't like. This will be a return for me. But for those on the hunt for a truly matte and lasting foundation, I would recommend this!

I have very sensitive and combo (mostly oily) skin and have a difficult time finding foundation that won't cause my skin to dry out or break out. This is the first foundation in years that I've been able to wear all day without any issues! A surprising bonus for me was that it also lasts all day, even through workouts if I end up exercising during my lunch break. Highly recommend, especially for sensitive skin!
Amazing!! My new favorite
Rickybabe from NJ
I have been curious about this foundation for a long time! I am a big fan of Catrice but for some reason I didn't dare to try this foundation, the color range was so limited. But after watching so many of my favorite youtubers raving about it and finding a good color match on Catrice's website I got it and it is beautiful! Why it took my so long to try it?? My skin looks amazing! It left an airbrush effect on my skin, pores are not that visible, the color was perfect! Beautiful foundation! I am so happy!!
Wow! My new fave!
AmberMay76 from Eastern Shore, MD
I've searched and tried just about every brand out there. My typical go to is the expensive but worth every penny Lancôme 24 hour Teint Idol. Well, after reading the reviews here for this stuff I figured for the price it couldn't hurt to try. Wow was I surprised! Covers just as well as Lancôme, light on my skin, comfortable to wear and lots of shades to choose from! Hardly use any at all and get a full face of smooth coverage. I love it!
I wanted to like this
O from Los Angeles
I was really excited to try this and the first few uses went pretty well. It did dry pretty fast so I had to be quick with blending, but other than that I was excited to not have to spend $40 on foundation anymore. I had read other reviews saying that this foundation caused people to breakout, but I wasn't too worried since nothing really seems to make my skin breakout super bad anymore. Unfortunately this did cause me to break out pretty badly like the worst I've seen in years. Super bummed because if it weren't for that I would've made this my foundation until they discontinue it.
My favorite foundation
Eden from Philadelphia, PA
No foundation is going to perfect, including this one, but it has definitely earned its place as my go to. It's FULL coverage, though I do still have to cover up any "problem areas" with concealer. It's very long lasting, even with combo skin like mine. I put it on for work in the morning, set with powder, and it still looks passable going into the evening. No other foundation I've tried has the coverage and staying powder that this does. It does oxidize, so beware of picking the right color. I've been wearing this foundation for over a year and have yet to find one that can compete. And you definitely can't beat the price!
Chrissy from Levittown, pa
This foundation has such great coverage, I didn't need concealer for my dark circles under my eyes or my freckles!

Great coverage with a mat finish
My ONLY Foundation!
SunDiego from San Diego CA
I have melasma and because of this skin condition I have to use full coverage. Over the years I have tried so many! Although they may cover, my face looked cakey! My face looked like I had heavy makeup on! The only foundation that looked the best on me but giving me the full coverage I needed was from a very high brand name (Dio*) that was very expensive. Still, I looked like I had thicker makeup on but it was not AS bad as the others. That was my go to until I decided to try Catrice. With its low cost I honestly did not expect much. Wow, and woW again backwards! This inexpensive great quality Catrice foundation covers up my melasma AND it looks like I have light medium coverage, not FULL COVERAGE THICK MAKEUP! Thank GOD I tried it and thank God I'm not allergic to any of the ingredients! My skin looks healthy and not dull. I use very very very light hand powder to set it to avoid adding texture, and my skin looks GORGEOUS! I use the Catrice One Drop Concealer as well for my undereyes and for that added coverage for my melasma and a liquid blush from Nar*. That is it! My skin looks hydrated and healthy. I am 55 yrs old with already great skin however no one would ever know due to my cake face. Now I'm cake face free and have the coverage I ALWAYS wanted with no stress in my wallet! Thank you Catrice! I am bummed that Ulta stopped selling the One Drop Concealer! Well, as long as I can order straight from Catrice I'm ok, but do wish Ulta still sold it. Actually they only sold up to color 30. My color is 40 so I had to get that online anyway.
Absolutely love it!
Melissa from Kansas City
Great buildable coverage. So many shades to match any skin tone. Very lightweight and feels like I'm not wearing anything!
One of the best inexpensive foundations..
Bran from Charlotte, NC
Honestly, this foundation really surprised me. It went on beautifully and stayed put all day! The only reason why I didn't give it a 5 star rating is because it did end up breaking me out which was super disappointing. But I would definitely compare it to some higher end foundations. I have always worn Estée Lauder Double wear and thought this was somewhat similar. The Cartrice foundation does have a little but of a fragrance when you put it on but seemed to disappear after application.
Perfect for oily skin
mawinda10 from CA
My favorite foundation that does not budge. I have oily skin and this foundation does exactly what I need it to do. This is my bulletproof foundation that doesn't slip and slide on me. Love it!
My favorite foundation
Andrea from Houston, TX
I absolutely LOVE this foundation. It blends well for me, and doesn't feel super heavy on my face. I am always trying to find the perfect foundation, but since trying this out several months ago, I exclusively use this now. And you cannot beat the price!
Dee from Florida
This makeup has a great texture and lovely smell. You get good full coverage and it is buildable without settling into pores. When you touch your face later in the day, it feels soft and natural; not sticky or oily or slippery. I bought the rose beige as I am light skinned with pink undertones.
Kayla from USA
I only use matte foundations and this one leaves the perfect matte finish! I noticed that I don't need to use as much of it as I thought to cover my face and neck so I think this bottle will last me awhile! I've been trying to transition myself to cleaner products so I was so excited to find this brand. You can't beat this price too. I went on the Catrice website to use the shade finder and it was spot on for me. I'm super pale and used to wear shade 101 in L'Oréal Infallible Pro-matte. I bought the shade Rose Beige 202 and think it's a great match!
Nice coverage but I look like a cake!
Tara from FL
I was very hopeful for this foundation. It actually goes on really easily with my foundation brush but it's just too dry for my skin. Even though it does cover very well, it makes me look very cakey and unnatural. I can't get it to blend in well enough so it's back to the drawing board for me. Apparently, I need something with more moisture/
this is an OK foundation
steph from ohio
I bought this because I saw Patrick star review and he loved it! But I didn't. it's an okay foundation it settles into my fine lines and doesn't do much for pores. it's not a terrible foundation but there's definitely better ones for the same price or cheaper.
YESSSSSS!!!!! from Des Moines, IA
I have super oily skin and I mean SUPER!!! I've tried all the drugstore foundations for oily skin and this is the only one that I'm not blotting in the first 4 hrs and doesn't look like a oily mess at the end of the day!!!! It's up there with my Estée Lauder Double Wear but a fraction of the price!!! 💕💕💕
Carly from Hyannis, Mass
I cant believe how much I love this foundation. Im in the beauty industry and I try ALOT of products.. lately I've been on a foundation binge, trying lots of new ones. I happened to pick this up on my way home one day and I cant believe the coverage. It looks beautiful on the skin, and after wearing a mask all day with it on, it still doesn't budge. This has turned into a favorite in just a few uses. I highly suggest this! #lightweight #fullcoverage #doesntbudge #maskproof #flawlessskin
Don't purchase if you have textured skin
NinjaRaven from GA
This gives a very pretty satin matte finish, with that said I have large pores on my nose and even with a pore filling primer, unfortunately in emphasized every single pore, nobody wants a strawberry nose.
I'm going to try to mix it with some moisturizer to make a tinted one, but so unfortunate, I had high hopes give the reviews. Back to L'Oreal Infallible 24 hrs...one of my favorites.
Best foundation ever !!
Loveanna from San Diego Ca
This is the best foundation ever! It stays all day long and perfect for my oily skin. Love it and it's so natural and radiant!!!
I'm going to buy this product again.
Sherrie from Oklahoma
Good coverage, doesn't take alot
Love the coverage....... but
Mayra from Bay Area
The coverage that this foundation has is amazing!!!! But I'm super pale and the lightest shade was way too dark/: and it would get a bit patchy on my dry areas of my face
Worst foundation I've ever used!!
Ciara from 30165
If I could give this ZERO stars, I would. I purchased because of such great reviews! I have somewhat combination skin. Oily around T zone and dry everywhere else. No matter what method I used to apply this it would immediately separate and would not blend it. No matter how hard I tried. It was like pure oil sitting on skin that had a hint of color to it. Also it was completely sheer in the same way bb cream is. I even tried it a second time. I purchased two bottles plus concealer. Had to return them all
Love this product
Britt from Jacksonville Florida
This is by far my favorite foundation that I have ever used. My go to has always been Estée Lauder and recently Il Makiage until I gave this foundation a try. It's lightweight with FULL coverage. It has a "second skin" effect because it goes on so smoothly. I saw other reviews that stated this caused them to breakout but I never experienced a breakout with this and I have sensitive acne prone skin.
Great coverage but made me breakout
Cidney - Queen of DIY from Lynchburg, VA
This foundation has amazing coverage while still being lightweight. It really felt like I wasn't wearing foundation. The BIG con is that it makes me breakout...like EVERY-TIME! I have fairly clear even skin so I only wear make up once or twice a week whenever I want to feel a little more glamorous and like clockwork the day after I would wear it I would have 3-4 breakouts. This is a bummer because I really like the way this foundation looks and lasts.
