Most Helpful Positive Review used while on accutane. amazing!
God yes. If you're not aware of what Accutane is, it's a strong acne prescription drug that makes your skin extremely dry. It wasn't my first time taking accutane so I knew going into it what would happen to my skin. So I went to my local drug store and picked this one out-not knowing what I was getting into going into this. Ive never used a foundation by this brand but it was the only foundation that pretty heavily branded 'heavy glow', so I bought it (plus it was super cheap compared to others). Let me just say I never had high hopes for this foundation. I have an extremely hard time finding foundation that works for me and considering I was about to go through skin h*ll for the next 8 months I wasn't getting my hopes up. Long story short this foundation was a holy grail. I never once had any dry patches through a 12 or 15 hours I had this on. Occasionally if I knew I was touching my face a lot that day I'd have to quickly powder and blend my face some. that was really the only con. I applied beautifully and so smooth once you powder your face. My contour and highlight blended well with it and all in all Im super impressed. 2 months after I finished Accutane (finished my 3rd bottle) I ran out and didn't have time to go to the store and pick up more so I used some of my foundation I used before which was some high end pricey foundation. Lets just say I went through the day feeling like my face was the dessert, and looking so cakey. immediately that next morning I picked me up some more pro-glow. I will never go back to anything else and will honestly be devastated if they discontinue this. If you know you have dry skin or if you're on Accutane or some other skin solution that makes your skin dry PLEASE use this. I promise you'll never want to use anything else. This saved me from 8 months of h*ll because honestly I loved putting on my makeup knowing I was going to look glowey and flawless.
Most Helpful Critical Review it's ok
I read nothing but positive reviews on this foundation. Yes it's beautiful and is very thin and has good coverage, but it reminds be a lot of the loreal lumi without the wetness because it does set. What I noticed from it was that it enhances my pores and actually settled in them and made them look more prominent. I also noticed upon applying it that it was settling into my fine lines. It's an ok foundation I don't get the hype.

HC from Houston
Love this formula. I got a lot of compliments when I wore it. Dewy but not overly so. I apply it with a beauty blender and it has medium to full coverage. Really like this for everyday wear.
Great on dry skin
MJ from CA
This is my go to drug store foundation. The coverage and finish are everything I am looking for in a foundation. It doesn't settle into lines or accentuate dryness.
Terrible shade range, PLZ EXPAND
Stella from Va
This has been my staple for a few years now. I have tried many, many foundations and this is the only one that consistently works on my dry skin. It is long-lasting, beautiful, and is easy to apply. But PLEASE for the love of all things increase the shade range so all my dry skin ladies can experience this magical consistency!
Where is the glow?
Lisa from MD
Not sure why glow is in the name. Finish was matte.
WriterGal from PA
This is a great foundation. If I don't want to look too glowy, I mix this with the Matte version and it creates a great look.
Not sure what happened
Carly from Minnesota
I have been wearing both the pro-glow and pro-matte for probably 3 years now. Just within the past few months, I've really struggled with the makeup setting into my fine lines and looking blotchy. I use a primer, moisturizer, setting spray, powder.. just can't figure out why I can't get it to look good. I will not be repurchasing, which is disappointing, I really liked this foundation but I just can't get over how unnatural it has started to make me look.
Great coverage for daily make up
Zahra from Lawrence, KS
I haven't tried this foundation before. So, when I went to the Ulta store, asked help about the color from one of the staff. She helped perfectly and we picked the proper color. About the foundation, the coverage is great for daily make up. Comparing with the same price products from other brands that I tried, this foundation was satisfying and excellent.
Weird little white bubbles
Jessie from Albuquerque, New Mexico
So I used this foundation for a while, and when you blend it out with a sponge, it has these tiny white dots. I use these and "pop" them where I would usually highlight. It's a weird formula and takes a lot of finessing, but is okay if you're at the drugstore and in a pinch, I guess. The color match was really, really good but not worth the inconsistency.
GR from USA
I've been using this for over 2 years now. I have combination skin. It makes my skin looks so good and healthy looking. It doesn't settle into fine lines hardly at all! I've used many other drug store and name brand foundations and I ALWAYS go back to this one, it never fails me! Also, a little goes along way so it lasts a long time, plus build able coverage!
Only downside is limited shades. Wish they would add more lighter shades.
where are the light shades?!
gatorfan from florida
Seems all brands only cater to darker skin tones these days and we light skin ladies are left with little to nothing in shades (even though there are statistically more light skin women than dark). this product has almost nothing in shades for light skin. even light skin ladies deserve to be treated with equality.
Wears nicely throughout the day
Blessedmomofsons from OH
Applied nicely (used moisturizer & primer beforehand), lasting staying power, good color match, did not leave my skin looking orange, dry or flaky.
Great product (Dry skin)
Ireland from Kentucky
It's provides good coverage without looking cakey, it's great for my dry skin, and it even does great without any primers and it lasts all day for me and it's very easy to blend! I recommend this if you are looking for a good drugstore foundation, I just wish they had more shades!
Amber from West Virginia
The shade range sucks so much!
go to foundation
SamBtheLamb from vermont, United States
201 is too light and 202 is too dark but if I mix them its my perfect shade. I cant get over the finish either, its beautiful.
My current go to for drugstore
Lacey from Boston
If you're going for a dewy, luminous finish that won't break your bank account, this is it! It has great coverage (I have pretty bad hormonal acne breakouts) but of course it's not 100% covering. For my dry skin, it prevents it from looking to cakey or flakey! Only complaint is the shade range. I buy the 02 and it's almost a little dark for me and I'm never the first shade of any foundation. For a medium/full coverage they need more shades!
Great Drugstore Foundation
erica from chicago
This is one of the best affordable, everyday foundation. Great to wear on a low-key day. It is not cakey nor patchy provides a great glow and moisture.
I LOVE IT!
H.M from Los Angeles
One of my favorite foundations! It looks so smooth on my skin. It doesn't make me look cakey/dry at all.
The best foundation EVER!
Kiki from Birmingham, AL
I have used this foundation for a few years and LOVE IT! I have a light/medium skin tone with combination skin. I use 204 Natural Buff in the summer and 203 in the winter. I always try to buy expensive / fancy foundations too but nothing beats this one! It is the perfect amount of coverage, goes on well, isn't greasy or cakey, and doesn't make me look orange or white. I love it! I can wear it for daily makeup, and for a night out! 12/10
Karmi from Corona Ca
The texture was not to heavy on my face . I loved the coverage . The coverage is build able. It has a radiant glow . It was easy to color match and affordable.
I would definitely buy this foundation again!!
Cass from Manteca, Ca
I Loved this foundation, it was a perfect match.
L from L
I have slightly dry skin and i love this foundation. it is one of the only ones i've tried that isn't cakey or patchy at all. it's a very hydrating and dewy formula that i just love. and, if you wanted to powder it down, it works wonderfully with powder.
I very much enjoy this foundation
LinaLeo from NH
for context - I have normal to dry skin that's been on Earth for 32 years. not too many fine lines but I do have pores that a family of four could swim in, and I significant amount of scarring from relentlessly picking my face as a teenager and into my early 20s and scarring from falling off a playground and face planting into a pile of wood chips. so sometimes glowy makeup can emphasize texture and this does, unless I wear a pore filling type of primer then I apply this with a dense brush, a little goes a long way doing this since the foundation itself is quite thin and spreadable. it really has the most beautiful finish, whether you build it up or just lightly buff in a pea sized amount.
SM from Virginia
This is the best foundation out there!!! I used to use the two faced born this way, but after discovering this I'm never going back!!!
Not Worth It!
Libby from PA
This was recommended to me by so many people that I finally caved and bought it. I regret buying it. I've tried applying it with a sponge, brush, and fingers, tried multiple layers, and i can hardly get enough coverage to balance out the redness from my face, let alone cover anything, yet it still looks cakey. The worst thing though, is that this foundation does this horrific thing where no matter what concealer I use with it, it turns into this gross, gummy mess.
Cassie from Missouri
I've been looking for a dewy, non-cakey, medium to full coverage foundation FOREVER. On some impulse I grabbed this and I couldn't be happier. It performs well, good buildable coverage, and lasts for quite a while.
