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 read about this on a YouTube channel I follow about makeup for over 50. WOW! Best foundation I've ever used! I apply with a brush and sponge after moisturizer and primer. It gives full coverage without caking or flaking, is not oily, and lasts the whole day! Very natural finish, not matte, but not dewey, just right. New favorite product and I can't believe the price!
skin like finish!

This is one of the best matte foundations I have come across yet. I have tried the Too Faced matte foundation and the estee lauder double wear but, this Foundation matched my undertones and felt weightless on my skin. I will definitely buy again and keep this as one of my go to foundations.

the coverage is decent and this does spread well however , it tends to turn a little orange-y after a couple hours .
BEST foundation I've found!
Kortney from Kansas
I love this! This feels like I'm not even wearing makeup. It's full coverage hides my acne scars, and looks flawless. It even lasted through my workout. I do set it lightly, because I personally like a matte look, but I don't know that it needs it.
Diane from New Jersey
Have finally found my perfect foundation. I have combination skin. Regardless of prep work my forehead, eyebrow area and around nose gets very oily, but cheeks and chin stay dry. Ive bought so many expensive brands, I'm talking 50-60 range and always get the same disappointed look by mid-day. This product is amazing. Very light weight but great coverage. I use very little product. Yes does dry quickly but Ive learned to do a section at a time by reading reviews, which works well. Was amazed first day how it looked the same from when I applied it early morning till I washed it off that evening. No cakey or oily look, I was almost tempted to sleep with it on. I've been using 2 weeks already still get same result like first day. I already bought the next two shades up for the summer as I start to tan. Can't wait to see how it holds up in warmer weather
Awsome flawless coverage
Mompee O from Darien, Il
So smooth and easily bendable. A little goes a long way!!! Comes with a drop applicator, but you can use fingertips if you desire.
Makeupmamma from Sacramento
This foundation is a amazing, I stopped using a lot of my high end foundations! This is my go to.
Jenn from Minnesota
Seriously this is the best foundation and the price makes it even better!!!!
Great for Price
Brittney from Indianapolis, IN
LOVE LOVE LOVE I have purchased all the expensive foundation...I'm not afraid to spend $40 on foundation. However, I wanted one that I could apply even though I wasn't going anywhere. So I decided to try this on a whim, bc of price, and I can't be more happy. It goes on smooth and lasts all day.
My absolute favorite foundation!
Katrina from Ferndale, MI
This foundation is great! Full coverage, not a super matte finish, doesn't break me out, affordable. I mean, it's just perfect!
Kkay from Evans Georgia
I was wearing Double wear because it's long wearing and better for mature skin but can sometimes settle in pores. Catrice stays on, doesn't settle in my pores and is much cheaper!
Olive tone match!
Swanmom from Denver, co
I love this product. I have tried every foundation imaginable. Nothing matches my pale olive undertone. Finally. It smells great, but it doesn't linger. It covers really well, but is weightless. I have sensitive skin that is oily on my t-zone and dry everywhere else. I can where this to the gym. Love it!
Dani from Kansas
I set this foundation with bellápierre's banana setting powder and it created a really nice pore less look! One thing about this product is that it sets into your skin very quickly. So apply and blend to one spot of your face at a time and work your way around. It blended best with a damp makeup sponge over a dry sponge or a brush. If applied this way I found it goes on the easiest and most flawless (less splotchy). Will most likely buy again and already favor it over more high end products!l I have tried!!
It's a nice foundation but it oxidized a lot on me.
Nikki from Broomall Pa
My main complaint is that it oxidizes like crazy so get a shade or few shades lighter !!
Loved the application and coverage but it oxidized bad.
N from Portland, OR
It's a great foundation but the lightest shade oxidized super dark and orange on my fair skin. Other than that it wasn't cakey and went on smoothly.
Reenay from Cincinnati
I have been trying a bunch of different foundations but to me most just look " cakey " but this foundation specially for the price is AMAZING! I use a brush and then a blend ball
I would buy this again!
Stephanie H from Lake Havasu City , AZ
Used this with a brush and sponge. It's great either way.
gaby from california
sits nice doesnt slip off ! rubs off a little with masks :(( as does any i think
Works better than expensive foundations
Aisha from Jersey
I love this foundation. I've tried many in every price range and this is comparable if not better than expensive ones. It covers blemishes and dark circles often even without concealer. I bought two shades. One for summer and one for winter
Only one problem with this foundation
Lingalew from Indiana
And that's that they don't make more shades. Otherwise it's like double wear but three times cheaper. Lasts all day. Looks amazing. Great for oily skin that needs a Matte foundation.
I had to buy two colors to get the right shade. But oh well. That's cheaper than what I have been spending on nars, bare minerals, tarte, and Estée Lauder.
I love this!!!
Jenn from Conneaut, Oh
This matched my skin perfectly and stayed on all day long!! This is perfect for my dry/oily skin. I used to use the NARS long radiant wear and I love that one but I think I love this just a bit more
jmarz from ri
goes on like anastasia or rare beauty foundation for a fraction of the price. great coverage, and smooth application. 10/10 recommend this dupe!
I love this foundation!!!!
KayMichelle from Maine
I love this foundation, I haven't used it on its own yet, but I mixed it with another foundation and let me tell you!! Wow!!! I had such a nice smooth looking face. Now I'm placing an order for 2 more as backups because I'm afraid of losing this foundation as an option. I love it!!! Please don't discontinue this product 🙏
Kait from Florida, USA
I was surprised by how much I love this foundation. I was expecting something functional but not exceptional at its price point, but it's such higher quality than the price would indicate! It has great build-ability and can be layered for higher coverage without it becoming cakey of tacky. It feels comfortable and lightweight even after I built it up for high coverage, and I personally didn't find it itchy or irritating while wearing my face mask (could be a coincidence, but I thought it was worth noting).
Feels Great But Causes Acne
Courtney from Knoxville, TN
The shade of this formula and the way is feels on the skin was fine. I have oily skin and this did not turn into an oil slick by the end of the day, which was nice. I did have to use powder to set it. My biggest complaint and the one that caused me to have to return it is that it caused very painful cystic acne. I haven't had a foundation cause this much pain in years. I even thought it was something else I was doing, but every time I took a break from this for a few days it would clear up. So sad it didn't work for me because I liked everything else about it.
