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 started using this after daughter recommended. It was on sale and thought it wouldn't hurt to try. I now LOVE it.I will be using this from now on. Covers blemishes and my sun spots/ aging spots on my face.
Jamieson from San Diego
Goes on so smooth, matches my skin tone perfectly, doesn't feel heavy on my face
I wanted to love this so bad
Vick from San Antonio, TX
I took the Juvias Place shade finder multiple times, and this is the third foundation i've tried to purchase during COVID. No matter how hard I try, I simply cannot match my skin. The shade definitely oxidizes lighter on my face, but it DEFINITELY full coverage. I was a whole shade lighter when I tried it. A small amount truly does go a long way.
This is amazing!
Abi from Prosper, Texas
I loved the texture and smoothness of the foundation!
I like it
Kritter from CO
This is a very nice full coverage foundation. It is matte, but I prefer a matte finish. It is very pigmented, so you don't need much at all. It feels light on the skin.
coverage is ridiculous, maybe for someone who works on stage
ClauGza from Brownsville, TX
coverage is ridiculous, maybe for someone who works on stage or on stage, but for everyday life it's definitely a big NO
Love the foundation, but it broke me out :(
Marilou from Hollywood
I really loved this product! The only con was that it broke me out and so I had to stop using it. Other than that, I have no complaints whatsoever! It's a shame it breaks me out because it's the first foundation shade that matches me perfectly. My shade is Cebu 610
Worth A Shot
Afrhodisia from Texas
It took me three tries but so found my match (430). The first two (350 and 340) made me look orange. The only reason I won't give it five stars is that even after using a setting spray my makeup still transfers. I didn't have this issue with previous brands.
Kay from Fresno, CA
The undertone is perfect for my skin. Every other foundation pulls really orange or really pink but this one is a perfect yellow undertone that doesn't oxidize. I have combo skin and this keeps me matte. It's my favorite foundation ever! And I've tried many.
This is secretly a concealer
Jazmin from Las Vegas
I find this comparable to Dermablend in the fact it is incredibly full coverage but can be cakey or thick in appearance if skin is not prepped correctly. I mix the foundation with a strobing cream like Loreals Lumi Drops it something similar and the foundation really looks quite natural looking yet still full coverage. Worth a try!
Total bust 👎
April from Beverly Hills, FL
I was so excited to try this foundation after watching Nikki tutorials video about it. First off, it exaggerates every single line and pore, even when I only use a very VERY tiny amount. Also, no matter what primer, what brush, what blender I tried it would NOT stick to my face. Even 15-20 minutes of having it on and it would still come right off leaving a totally blank spot. It doesn't go on evenly, either. Finally, I tried 3 different colors and they all turned yellow on my skin right away. I mean, like a Simpson's character YELLOW. All around it was a bad experience. I would not recommend.
T. from MS
It was ok. Full coverage but it turns oily on my skin.
Hollieb82 from Brookhaven,Ms
This is the best coverage I had ever experienced im totally in love I definitely will be using this from now on
Matte and what I expected!
V from Albuquerque, NM
I applied using a synthetic bristled brush from It Cosmetics. Kinda streaky so I stippled with a blender sponge. 1st use I applied to brush and then added to skin— not recommended as it's hard to tell how much you're applying and you can over do it. 2nd use I dabbed a tiny bit of product onto my skin and used brush to blend and stipple. Much better! Brush or sponge works well for application. Shows up pretty light at first but oxidizes and darkens 1-2 shades after 2-3 minutes. Purchased in shade 550 Martinique and warmed it up with some bronzer— the undertone was pretty spot on. I also wear NC35 in MAC Studio Fix fluid, 320N in Anastasia Luminous foundation, and Sandstone in BarePro pressed powder... just for reference. I will add that it does not hold up with a mask like some of the aforementioned foundations do, even with primer and setting powder. So it's definitely not transfer resistant. Pretty finish though!
I would buy this product again
Meghan from Indiana
I love that this product is a TRUE matte. It doesn't take much product at all to cover your face with a full coverage look. I got the product on sale which is what I wanted to do when trying the product and I could definitely say I will continue to use this foundation. The product when I put it on makes me look orangey and looks to dark for my skin, but after my Makeup is done and has oxidized it seems to fit my skin really well.
Hands down the best full coverage AND affordable
Jess from AR
I have purchased over 40 different foundations. 20 of which were supposedly full coverage. If you are dry like me i would suggest some sort of pore filling primer or silicone based. Also if you are dry one AMAZING thing you can do is add a small drop of facial oil or maybe mix in a small drop of bb cream (i often add a small drop of IT foundation. You can also use a priming spray that's alcohol free to avoid even more drying. Then i lock it in with a dusting of my laura mercier setting powder. Another BIG tip....a little goes a very veryyyyyyy long way. The first few bottles i wasted so much. This a must buy, and is inclusive with so many ranges of colors. I would avoid any of them with rose/pink or orange tint bc the small bit of oxidation that rarely happens pulls those hues. It even works for mature skin as well. My sister is 19, mom is in her 50s, and i am in my mid 30s and we all have VERY different skin types. I do not have time to sing all of this foundations praises but ladies stop wasting your money of these expensive to find full coverage. This saves me 100s of dollars.
Jess from Kennett Sq
This is pretty much my first full coverage foundation and wow, I feel beautiful. I don't have alot of issues, but have some discoloration from the sun. It covers everything and wore well throughout the day. I get very oily and had to touch up once with my pressed powder after six hours. I don't find it to be cakey at all, I think it has a beautiful finish. It's day one, so I can't speak to breakouts etc, but so far so good. For ref; I used a mattifying moisturizer with spf as usual- Shine Away by Botanics (but no primer eeek), applied with my IT cosmetics foundation brush and my pores virtually disappeared. Finding your shade may be tricky, there was more than one light/neutral, but a rep suggested one and it ended up being a match. Alexandria 650
Tina from Ohio
Was looking for a lasting foundation. The sales lady said this was great . So orangy. It oxidized and made me look orange. 👎🏼👎🏼
VERY full coverage
Mercedes from Phoenix, AZ
This foundation is very full coverage and a little does go a long way! I haven't been able to fully wear the foundation how I would like since I'm always wearing a mask but from what I've used it works well. The only con I have is that it does enhance the texture from my dry spots I have on my face. Pro it really does cover your acne and blemishes without having to use more products (like concealer).
divamom from VA
Used for daughter's senior pictures. she does not wear much makeup but she found her correct shade, the images were helpful to choose. it looked and felt like skin on her face it was perfect. velvet smooth finish was absolutely achieved.
Amazing Coverage !!

Coverage is unreal
shammie from Texas
LOVED IT! MATCHED MY SKIN TONE PERFECTLY
If you like orange...
Rocky from MA
Or peach undertones in your foundation, this one's for you! You better buy it from Ulta if you do cause if you buy from Juvia's be ready to keep it even if it's not the right shade or THEY mess up your order and send you the wrong shades!
I am not orange
Phnx from Dubuque
While it looks good for the first 30 seconds, unless you have a super thin layer on it turns orange as it oxidizes. it matches my skin sometimes but more often than not I have to take it off because the rest of my skin is not a carrot.
Frizz from New York
This foundation is incredible. The coverage is amazing without feeling super thick or caked on. I definitely bought a shade too light but it works as a base color to add bronzer and such on top. It's also summer so i'm a little bit tanner than usual. The coverage is actually so good I would advise going with a lighter shade if you're deciding between two.
