Rated 4.16 out of 5 stars
This foundation is aptly named! I have combination oily skin with tons of texture and acne and this foundation makes it look absolutely beautiful. This is definitely a light foundation that can be built to a strong medium. It covers my redness well, but I still always use concealer to ensure nothing peaks through. It's definitely NOT full coverage. This does not break me out all (I'm very acne-prone). I love the natural radiant satin finish this foundation gives to my complexion. So lightweight on the skin and it perfectly brightens my skin without being oily or greasy at all! If you want this to last all day I would recommend setting this with powder or baking, otherwise this will not last through an 8 hour shift.
LW2 is my PERFECT shade. For reference I also use Too Faced Born This Way in Pearl, Wet N Wild Photo Focus in Soft Beige/Soft Ivory (I mix them), Milani Conceal+Perfect 2-in-1Foundation in 01 Creamy Vanilla, & L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Glow in 202 Creamy Natural (before I went cruelty free!). I highly recommend this foundation to people of all skin types.
I'm giving this 4 stars because it is not full coverage as it claims & it doesn't last all day, but this is still a really great foundation!
The claims on this foundation are pretty much all true, good coverage, lightweight, great for dry skin, no creasing, all around it's everything I wanted in a foundation. Which is why I'm SO DISAPPOINTED because GIRL does this stuff oxidize. I haven't seen anyone else writing about this which is so SO surprising. I bought shade LC1, but there was nothing cool toned about it. In the attached photo, the top swatch is the foundation after 10 seconds, the middle swatch is the fountation after one minute and the bottom swatch is my normal go-to foundation, Too Faced Born This Way in Snow. As you can see, the swatch turned ORANGE. I didn't use any primer, so it's not like it's not like it's reacting badly with another product. I'm so heartbroken, I wanted this to be my new holy grail :'(

I finally found a light non greasy formula with a great price. Match quickly and perfectly.

It gives a dewy look and I have been using it for 2 years. My skin doesn't look caked and it's buildable from light to medium coverage. Probably wouldn't recommend for oily skin since it's a dewy look and would cause break outs. I also love the SPF because I always forget to put on sunscreen.

So it started out good. But I clearly missed some red flags with this. As soon as I opened it, it had a wand applicator rather than it just being an open bottle. Main reason I don't like that is cause I find it unsanitary. And then the odor. It was very chemically and I thought it was just me being overly sensitive to the smell but no. My boyfriend confirmed it did smell very chemically. It went on great on my face. Nice natural finish. Blended like a dream. Two days later I start breaking out bad. It may just be my own reaction to this formula. But that chemical smell can't be good for you.

This is the first time I've ever been complimented on foundation! I love it so much that I don't even reach for my other foundations. LW2 has been a great match for me, so that helps a lot, but really - it looks great. Not too high coverage that it feels like you're wearing something. It makes me nervous when I see it on sale - I don't want it to go away!

Love this foundation. I still give it 5-Stars despite the slightly off-putting smell

Just learned this morning Physician's Formula is discontinuing this. I am heartbroken since uts the only Drugstore priced foundation that doesn't cause rosacea breakouts. All of us who love this foundation need to write to the company and voice our displeasure!

I love this foundation, just heard they were discontinuing it?! I hope they bring it back with a pump instead of a doe foot! it's literally perfect other than the applicator. it hydrates & plumps the skin, long lasting & a true medium coverage.

It looks very dewy on the skin and it settles nicely that I do not need to set my face with powder. The only thing that turns me and other people off is the smell, it smells like paint but the smell wears off eventually. It's not something that bothers me much but makes me hesitant to put on my skin. Really beautiful nonetheless

I bought the LW2 foundation shade and when it came in. It looks 5x lighter than what it displayed as. So I was confused wonder if they ran out of what I ordered and just gave me something else and put the LW2 sticker on it to convince me to believe this is the foundation that I ordered. Well I tried it on, and for some reason when I put the foundation on and blended it with my skin, after a few minutes it literally matched my skin tone but it still a tad bit lighter (but highly even noticeable). Also it somewhat a cover up dark spots but not 100%. I'm probably gonna try a darker shade but this will have to do now sadly.

I like This foundation I like the ease of application And the natural dewy finish. it has a light to medium coverage and on me with a good primer and setting with power it has a staying power of 6-7 hours. I wish I had a bigger range of shades.

I have settled on foundation in the past, so I was never truly happy and just in general, wouldn't wear it a lot because other foundations would give me acne and dry skin. After spending $30-$45/bottle on prestige brands and not getting the results I wanted, I tried this as a "quick fix" one day and I absolutely love it. I have combination skin, along with some rosacea and this went on beautifully! It's not heavy, doesn't flake. I don't like tons of coverage but I do have a lot of redness, so I definitely need some. I use this along with some bronzer and blush and highlighter and it is perfect. I am super happy with this and I don't think I will ever try another prestige brand again. My only wish was that it could last all day, but I can at least add another coat in the evening if I really need to and it doesn't ever look caked.
ashley from Rhode island
This foundation is absolutely stunning, especially if you love healthy natural looking coverage. I just heard that they are discontinuing this and I am so heartbroken. I will have to stock pile this. The only thing I could say negative about this is that they could definitely include a lot more shades especially on the deeper end.
Heather from Michigan
It is a nice foundation to even out skin tone or to get that no makeup makeup look but it smells like maple syrup. strong fragrance
Abby from Seattle
one of the best foundations I've ever tried, the wear time isn't fantastic but the finish is absolutely beautiful
Nodira from NE
This foundation looks so healthy and smooth on my skin. My face looks like I drink 3 gallons of water every day ;). Only complain I have is a heavy fragrance. At first I was worried that it will break me because of the strong scent but so far it's goo. I've used this for 1.5 month now.
Elle from Cali
I'm not sure why maybe it's just my skin but this foundation no matter what primer or how thin or heavy I put it on it cracks and cakes it's atrocious on me. I had to throw it away.
Alanna from United States
Honestly I don't know why this doesn't get more hype, aside from the limited shade selection. For me, LC1 is a perfect match so I got lucky that way. But y'all..this foundation is SO. GOOD. It blends like a dream no matter how you apply it and it looks so radiant and natural on the skin. So far it has not creased or broke apart on me over the hours. You can layer it during application for more coverage and it doesn't get cakey and gross. Looks amazing on the skin in photos too. I hope Physician's Formula never discontinues this product!
Side note; Physician's Formula "Healthy Lip" velvet lipsticks are amazing as well and so affordable!

This is the second time I've used this product and both times I was extremely impressed. This foundation is super blendable and feels lightweight on the skin. It has a natural, flawless skin-like finish that is neither too dewy or matte. The coverage is medium but seems to be buildable. It does have a strange smell that fades after a while, but it's not intolerable to me. After a few hours it has not creased much at all or settled into smile lines as most foundations do for me. The shade range could be better but the lightest shade for me (LC1) is a perfect match. I like the large doe-foot applicator as well! This is definitely my new go-to foundation.
Kb from Michigan
Love the coverage and finish of this foundation! I wish there was a larger selection of shades though.
Tisha from New mexico
I tried it multiple times with different primer amd once on it's own. It wears horribly like you can see it sitting on your skin. Its smells atrocious. It gave me acne and skin redness. It does cover uneven skin tone but looks cakey and wears off fast
Rachel from Kansas City MO
I literally love this foundation so much. It's one of my favorite formulas ever but even the lightest shade is too dark for me (and it oxidizes and gets even darker ): ) PLEASE please please expand the shade range
FRUFRU from jacksonville, fl
I love this line and the brand as a whole! this is a really great everyday foundation that really does make your skin look healthy and youthful. if you're not into super full coverage but some coverage that can give you a healthy look, this is for you.
Mom from Palmdale, Ca
Looks great on skin, lived up to the hype- but could not get over the smell. Very strong.

I really like the coverage and the wear - I REALLY wish it came in a pump
baobao from Tulsa
I got this foundation a year ago but I got the wrong color and I really didn't like it. Also a year ago, I thought I needed full coverage just like the you tubers. Now I'm looking for something light to medium with a natural finish. I love this! I tried all sorts of foundation and I think this is my favorite! It doesn't look like I have makeup on. I love the finish of this foundation. It's shiny but not extremely shiny. It gives you a healthy glow. I didn't set it and it last all day.
