Most Helpful Positive Review The BEST foundation you'll ever try!
I didn't buy this online but came to review anyways because this foundation is BY FAR the most amazing foundation I've ever tried and for an amazingly affordable price! I've tried countless foundations in countless different forms and have been unable to find a perfect color match to my skin as well as a foundation that worked nicely on my combination skin for long periods of time. I believe this foundation would work very nicely on just about any skin type which is super rare and beyond amazing. I have recommended this foundation to several of my friends, all of different skin types and skin tones and it's worked wonders for them as well! This foundation is truly unreal! You only need a tiny drop to cover your entire face and it's very full coverage! I like to use my beauty blender but this works just as great with a brush so no matter what you prefer to use this will apply flawlessly! No matter what time I put this foundation on and no matter how long my day is this foundation stays on until I decide to wash it off! Touch ups aren't even necessary for me with this, maybe the occasional powder touch up if I've been working all day but for the majority of the time it's just not needed! To be completely honest I don't even use a primer with this anymore aside from when I feel like it but honestly it stays on and looks just as good whether you decide to use a primer or not but it's definitely nice to have the option considering you don't usually get that in a foundation. I really can't say enough good things about this foundation. If you haven't tried it, do yourself a huge favor and go buy it ASAP! I'm looking forward to trying more Juvia's Place products considering how amazing this foundation has worked for me. Just for reference I have naturally red hair so as you could imagine I'm pretty fair and usually have some slight redness to my face (unfortunately lol). I also have combination skin so it can be tough to find a foundation that works and looks great on my entire face like this one does. I wouldn't say my skin is the most sensitive in the world but I have definitely had my fair share of bad reactions to different products and I can say I have not had any sort of irritation or breakouts with this foundation. Like I said before, this foundation stays on all day no matter how long I wear it for. It always looks just as perfect as it did when I first put it on by the end of the day. It's literally never once gotten patchy or anything like that. This foundation is everything I've been looking for and everything I could ever want in a foundation! Don't waste anymore time buying any other foundations, everything you need is in this bottle and you can get it without breaking the bank or feeling the guilt of spending a ridiculous amount of money on just one little bottle of foundation. I hope this helps!
Most Helpful Critical Review So excited for this,but it was a miss for me
JP is my favorite brand currently, so I was super excited for this.
I'll start off with the good:
When first applied, this feels amazing; soft, lightly powdery, smooth. It's very high coverage and you don't need much product at all to get full coverage on your whole face. After application, it's clearly matte, but has this lovely "inner glow" look to it.
I have combo dry/normal skin but my skin can become dehydrated quickly.
Being WOC owned, JP is of course very WOC friendly which I love(I'm light/medium latina, and happy to see a company that actually carries things for darker complexions as well!).
This means the shade range is very large and suitable for many different skintones which is a major win.
While my skin LEVEL(light/medium-medium) is never at a loss for foundations,olive undertones are hard to come by, as are light-medium olive shades.
Many brands still think olive defines a race of people,or a level of skin(medium-tan:many tan ppl are olive,but not all olives are tan)Olive is just a green undertone, which can be warm or cool.
Olive undertones are normally entirely ignored, or made incorrectly(only tan/orange shades).
With that said, none of the shades in this line suit me. I thought Ibiza would work(tho,it is "cool golden" & golden & olive are NOT the same-only closer to olive than we would normally get), but since my skin is around NC25-30, it pulls orangey.If you are medium skinned & olive(NC35+), it will not pull orange unless it is the incorrect undertone for you. I would say it is the closest to olive in the lighter/medium range that JP has.
The 2nd I tried was Alexandria, which was close in level,but dried pink. I mixed them and it was ok, but it still wasn't quite right. The real ruiner of this foundation is that it makes my skin super dry and tight no matter how I prep. It's the driest foundation I've ever tried.
In the future, hopefully JP will create more dewy foundation and true olives, as they are frequently found in WOC.

I got this product to wear it every day and so far I love it, I don't know how well does with the humidity in the weather but I mixed it with my moisturizer to even out my skin complexion and went work out and I did a good job for not bein water proof formula, gotta take your time with the tone you are Picking cause it shows that you are wearing foundation cause it is full coverage, I love it this product and the price is pretty good!

Great product. I'm going back to buy a second one while my shade is still in stock.
Allie from Florida
This stuff is no joke. Worth every penny!
best foundation to exist tbh
mary from reno
i love this foundation it is so full coverage with a beauty blender using a makeup brush gives you more space to work with it full coverage isn't your thing. Watch Nikkietutorials she's always raving about it in some of her videos.
The best I ever tried
Niki from Weston
This foundation is the best . Very full coverage and matte , I would not recommend if you like glowy skin . Also the shade range is amazing
Patricia from North Carolina
I wore this foundation to Disney World in 99 degree weather. I even wore a mask. Let me tell you that this foundation exceeded my expectaions. It lasted all day with no problem and even stayed put when wearing a mask. Some of it did come off towards the end of the day but hey....thats great! It even survived being splahed in the face by Splash Mountain. AWESOME PRODUCT.
Great for oily skin
KT from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina
This is the foundation I've been looking for! I've never encountered one that is creamy but blends like a powder while retaining its gripping power. I'm fair skinned with uneven tone and rosacea, but this foundation won't rub off and show blotchy red like others do. It has great staying ability. The shades in my range are great. The price is awesome. I'm a minimal makeup girl but I actually apply less foundation with this because it's so pigmented. Somehow it provides lots of coverage but looks pretty natural. My oil does still break through after several hours in the humid south, but it looks more youthful and dewy than yucky. I've tried many foundations, both drug store and higher tier, and this is my favorite by far. I also have sensitive skin and this foundation doesn't irritate my face or make me break out. I love it.
My Holy Grail Foundation!
Brandyb123 from Corpus Christi, TX
I am a 32 years young, black woman and have hyperpigmentation and acne scars on my face from my younger years. I also have oily skin. I wanted to try this foundation so I went to the store and was extremely apprehensive having a store associate match me, due to Juvia's extensive range of shades and the associate was a young girl. She did a wonderful job finding the perfect shade for me, which is Kampala!
The foundation itself has AMAZING full coverage! I can use a pea sized amount on my cheeks, t-zone and chin, blend in with my finger or beauty blender and my face looks flawless! I will say, this foundation doesn't do anything for my oily skin, but I love the color and the coverage so it doesn't bother me that much. Please don't ever discontinue! I buy these 2 at a time to ensure I never run out!
Amazing Super full coverage
Akua from California
I love this foundation in the shade Aruba. It's one of the best I've ever used and color is an exact match for me. I always have to mix colors to get the perfect shade since I'm like in between tones. This works amazingly for me.
It's good for the price point
Cosmetic Queen from SC
Love the coverage and how creamy this product is. However, when I use the smallest amount it still will appear cakey. I've used with brush and sponge. Product is nice once you figure out how to make it look polished. I use with a hydrating concealer, that helps.
A from CA
I bought Isla as I usually get lighter shades in either cool tones or neutral to cool toned. And it was YELLOW. Nothing cool or neutral about it.
Didn't Work For Me

You can wear this full glam, or just for a simply work or lunch day!
Full coverage, brightening, hydrating
Tiger from USA
It's definitely full coverage, as advertised. It has a brightening effect and it's hydrating. Straight up, I use this over a popular niacinimide/zinc serum that tends to dry out my skin a little first, then a mattifying mineral sunscreen after it has dried down too. Then I apply a powder foundation to set the foundation and a setting spray over it. Only then will it sit well on my skin. Using a powder is an absolute requirement to set it or else it creases quickly.
For reference, I have sensitive combination skin that is light neutral in color, and I use the shade "Bali". The foundation does not make me break out and it feels super moisturizing, like high quality skincare, which is saying a lot about the quality of the formulation. Many foundations irritate my skin and make me break out easily.
What's interesting is that as I smooth it out, it changes color IMMEDIATELY upon application, so it goes from looking too yellow for my skin tone to being just right, a little lighter and brighter. Then it stays the same color all day, so I'm not mad at it. It's consistent and nice!
Hydrating and dewy primers, moisturizers, and moisturizing SPF/sunscreens will NOT work under this foundation because they make it stay soft all day long without ever really drying down, so it melts off under glasses and rubs off on clothes easily.
Since I prefer a drier consistency and medium coverage anyway, I mix it with an ordinary light coverage serum foundation. A tiny dab of JP foundation plus 1 pump of serum foundation, mixed together on my palm, covers my whole face and I look amazing. I prep my face the same way (niacinimide serum then sunscreen) and then use a powder and setting spray, so it really dries better and lasts longer, working wonders for me. I'm really enjoying it and I love the brand. Juvia's Place has a great mission as a company and they make awesome products.
Steph T. from Alabama
This foundation is incredibly full coverage and has a great matte finish. A little goes a long way with this foundation. My only complaint is that it breaks down for me after approximately 6-8 hours. I wear Olay whip SPF and Milk Hydro Grip beneath this foundation, and I set it with the Fenty Beauty powder. It will crease in my smile lines after about 4 hours, but it isn't really noticable until the 6 hour mark when it starts going patchy. I'll definitely repurchase this foundation for special occasions, but it's not a daily foundation for me
Will. Not. Set.
AC from MI, USA
Oof. I wanted to love this so bad. It covers all of your sins and sadness but unfortunately I couldn't get this set for the life of me. I tried all my primers, all my setting sprays, and nothing worked. This would be good for photos or events that you didn't need your makeup to last. I would say you get a good 3 hrs before it shifts and the coverage breaks apart. I have dry/normal skin and have never had such an issue with foundation slipping all over like I did with this.
ace from hsv
i was reading all these comments but i just wanted to try it out, finding a shade is difficult, the medium skin neutral tone has a yellowish undertone which the lady said it doesn't, the coverage wasn't even that full coverage like everyone said it was i had to layer it but it does have good coverage, kind of patchy so idk i'm just disappointed.
Banis from Mt. Vernon,Wa
I love this foundation a little goes a very long way. You literally only need a very small dot.
Riri from Houston,TX
Ok. You really have to understand knowing your color with this make-up, because if its "off" you will hate it. (Thats what happened to me)
It goes on sooooo smooth. It doesnt take much for a natural beat. Literally a PEA SIZE. A nickel size for FULL coverage. You wont regret it.
Also, I save somewhat oily skin & im not blotchy throughout the day with this. It really is that good.
A great foundation

This is a full coverage foundation . A little goes a long way . I recommend priming your face before application.
It was a miss for me
Natalie from South Gate, CA
I was very excited to use this foundation due to the fact that it is full coverage and i heard good things about it. I bought it and used it the same day I got the wrong shade BUT i made it work. It really is full coverage and i loved that it didnt make my face look i had on a ton of foundation, BUT I noticed in some areas the foundation wasn't staying on me and i tried a few times to put foundation on it but it just wouldn't stay on those areas. Once i finished my doing my face when i put on setting spray and i used a beauty blender to set in my setting spray, the foundation was coming off on other areas. Really upset this foundation didn't work for me I have better out comes with Wet n Wild and LA Girl.
Worst Foundation I've Ever Tried
Elizabeth from Columbia, SC
I usually buy the Morphe Fluidity Full-Coverage foundation, and it works perfectly for me. I adore it. However, I recently ran out and was in need of a replacement. I went over to Ulta and looked for it. Turns out they've pulled the Morphe in order to reformulate it. A store associate recommended this foundation, and to be honest, I have absolutely no clue why. It was horrible. I got a foundation that was supposed to be the corresponding shade, but the "neutral undertones" were an odd green. It dried SUPER yellow. In addition, the smell was absolutely horrific. I don't know if the bottle I got was expired or what, but it was terrible. After five minutes on my face, it felt tight and super drying, and the smell was just so horrible that I had to take it off. I had high hopes, and was extremely disappointed. However, I guess the finish was nice enough.

it oxidized like crazy for me and emphasized all my bumps also the coverage wasn't the best for me
