Most Helpful Positive Review My Holy Grail Foundation!
I love this product! I have dry skin and have been struggling to find a medium coverage foundation that lasted all day long. I am really fair so I did have to use foundation mixer but it lasted 14 hours with minimal rub off. I normally have to reapply but this foundation stays on, even on really hot and humid days. Because I have dry skin I use the Too Faced Hangover spray to prime, set, and refresh my face and it works better than my other primers. I highly recommend this to people with dry skin
Most Helpful Critical Review Cannot Make It Work
I cannot make this foundation work for me. When I first put it on it is so beautiful, but within half of my work day I am a mess. It breaks apart on my nose, and emphasizes ALL the textures I didn't even know I had. Even with a setting powder I have creasing on my forehead, the sides of my nose, and my chin looks like a desert. I've tried primer, I've tried no primer. I've tried setting the whole face, I've tried setting only certain areas of my face. I always use a setting spray. I am going to try to mix it with a more matte foundation and see where that gets me, but otherwise I would never give this foundation another shot.

I am a redhead with fair skin and the lightest shade was still WAY too dark. It also oxidized and turned orange.
I really like it
Drea from Rialto
I have acne and dry skin but this foundation gives a good satin finish.
Medium coverage foundation which is good for everyday.
Great medium to full foundation for oily/combination skin!
Bon from South Georgia
I use this daily with a makeup sponge
The only foundation I use!
Lauren from Minnesota
I'm fair with neutral undertones, leaning cool, and L1 is my perfect shade match. I mix it with my morning sunscreen for light coverage that looks completely skin like. I hate foundations that look obvious on your skin, and this one wears amazingly. If I use foundation, it's always this!
Tiffany from Ohio
I love the way this looks when I first put it on, it gives a beautiful slightly glowy (but not oily looking) finish. But by the end of the day it's worn off in some places, and looks cakey and weird in others. That's with and without primer so I'm not sure that it works for me. I have normal to dry skin.
Finally found my match!
FG from NY
I'm that in between fair shade where I'm not alabaster, but I don't have a lot of pink undertones. I got the shade L1 and I'm really happy with it. I sometimes struggle to find a shade that doesn't have too much of a yellow undertone (I'm more in that neutral with subtle yellow tone).
Super pretty and natural looking, really nice for my dry skin with a pretty glow!
Lauren from Minnesota
I really like this foundation! I rarely wear foundation; I prefer just using concealer on spots every day. This foundation is a perfect light-medium coverage for when I want to elevate my look. L1 is a perfect shade match for me. I have normal to oily skin, and the finish of this is a perfect slightly luminous/dewy natural finish. Honestly in love!!
Sc from California
Im in my 30s & have normal skin that gets dry sometimes. lol I love how this finishes. Idk if this would be a good fit for someone who is oily because it gives your skin a sheen. It's very light weight and I only use one layer bc I don't like full coverage but this evens out your complexion beautifully and gives it a healthy radiant glow. I am very sensitive to fragrance and I'm happy this doesn't have a detectable smell, at least not to me. Would for sure recommend to someone who wants a natural looking glowy finish.
Aisha from Ballwin
This has nice, gorgeous, luminous and dewy at the same time finish. I will say this is NOT A FULL COVERAGE foundation. But if you have good skin you will love this. I wear this on my good skin days (I have p bad acne) and it looks stunning overall amazing product. The only thing bad about it is the fact that it has a very poor shade range. But with that being said I did find my perfect shade with this foundation soooo....
Dewy & Luminous Finish
Irma from CA
I am on my third bottle of this foundation and I love the finish, I use a foundation brush because a sponge does not give me the coverage I need. I have combination acne scarred skin and get an oily nose, but this actually holds up well. I do set it with powder concentrating under my eyes and nose, you have to or it will not work for anyone unless you have super dry skin. I use the Flower Beauty Mattifying setting spray as well. I have slight allergies so I get a runny nose throughout the day and have to wipe my nose like 10 times a day and this holds up, I just have to pat it back in place if that makes sense. I don't expect any foundation to hold up when you're literally wiping your nose. On the days I want less of a dewy finish & full coverage I add a small amount of my Smashbox Studio Skin on top with a sponge. I've tried it mixing it and that doesn't work but it layers on nicely with other foundations. I love the natural my skin but better look this give me without feeling heavy.
Lori B from Phoenix, AZ
I LOVE this foundation...It's lightweight and a little glowy. It goes on evenly and does not breakup on my face. It gives my complexion a natural and evened out appearance...It does not settle into lines on my mature skin...
Love love love
Emgroom27 from Tamp, FL
I ordered this to try on a whim and I'm so glad I did! I am totally in love with this foundation. I have combination skin (I get oily in my t zone and also have some dry areas) and it works so well with my skin and in the Florida heat. This wears so well throughout the day! It dries down beautifully and actually lasts for a really long time. Every time I look at my skin late in the day I'm surprised that my foundation still looks on point. For the price, you really can't beat it!!
Not bad but not for me
Roeses99 from Northern California
I'm torn on how to review this. This foundation might be good for someone with extremely dry skin but it was not for me. The coverage was good, covered acne marks and evened my skin tone. Ulta's color match was dead on. That being said it was WAY to shiny for me. It literally looked like my skin was wet. I tried it with primer, without, with powder on top but nothing dulled the shine. Very tacky, my hair would stick to it in strands. Like I said, could be good for some, not for me.
AshleyB from Indiana
After so many positive reviews, I gave this foundation a chance. It didn't seem to want to blend in to my skin, no matter how much or little product I used. It seemed to just sit on top of the skin, and would quickly separate, especially on my nose — and I do not have oily skin. I tried different primers, no primer, a brush, a sponge, etc. (I always set with powder and setting spray.) Nothing seemed to work, so I will be returning.
Improve your shade range!
am I orange? from midwest
I'm surprised Drew's company wouldn't expand their shade range after so much feedback from consumers. I ordered the lightest shade and though the finish is beautiful, it oxidized and pulled so orange on my fair skin. I'll keep it because of the beautiful finish and use a lighter mixer to bring the color down to what I need, but I am very unimpressed with the shades.
Um yes! from NJ
I tried this in the winter and it was ok, but my dry skin didn't like it. As soon as spring/ summer started I tried it again and I am blown away! It's fantastic! Lasts all day, dewy and not too glowy. Love it. I use it daily since spring. Looks perfect on zoom too. Highly recommend. BTW I have dry to normal skin
Jamilet from Las Vegas, NV
The foundation itself wasn't bad, it was dewy and offered good coverage but my only down side was finding the right shade. The one I ended up choosing was a shade lighter than mine but managed to make it work but I would've given this four stars if they made it easier to find my shade.

WHAT happened to this formula??
JLeeB from Little Rock
I used to LOVE this foundation. I mixed it with Double Wear for a few years and it was perfection. It disappeared from stores so I started using something else. When I saw it was available again I immediately purchased my original color. Is it bad to say a foundation broke my heart? This is nothing like the original. The color was off and then it oxidized. It never really blended in, it just sat in weird blotches and magnified my pores. I tried it several different times with different primers, brushes, sponges...etc. still looked terrible.
Kennedy from U.S.
As someone with dry skin, this foundation is simply wonderful. It gives a beautiful glow, and you can use very little to get a light to medium coverage, or build it up. I use the shade M1, which is a tad light for me, but will be perfect when fall comes around. I am truly blown away at the value for the price. I would definitely recommend purchasing, especially if your skin is dry, or you love a dewy glow!
Best for everyday use
Xio from P R
This is my best pick for everyday use foundation. It really does the job. Feels super lightweight. Really love it. Buying since it came out.
I like it
lolalulu from SC
Don't get me wrong this is a good foundation and looks good and hydrating on my skin but it does oxidize and turn orange which I don't like at all.
I love this so much
Moonla from Washington
I love this foundation so much it is my absolute favorite it smooths Over my pores it has spf my skin looks glowy. And my foundation lasts soooo long the only downside is that the lightest shade is a bit too dark for me, I really hope they expand the foundation line because this is the best foundation I've ever had
Kari from California
This foundation isn't horrible, but for my skin it doesn't work. I have quite a bit of texture on my cheeks and this foundation really emphasizes it. It's extremely luminous which I was expecting it to be luminous but it almost looks like you powdered your face with highlight if you don't set it with powder. I noticed in a few other reviews they said it's fairly thick and I will agree it's one of the thickest foundations I've ever tried. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone with texture on their skin, people who don't like a super glowy foundation, people who want their foundation to be lightweight and people with oily skin.
Great everyday foundation
MonicaMD from Durham, NC
I love this foundation for everyday because it looks fresh/slightly dewy and has good coverage. The SPF is also a plus! I sometimes enjoy mixing this foundation with other foundations that are more matte or with a tinted moisturizer if I want a more natural look. It does oxidize a bit so maybe consider that if you're between shades.
