Finally a foundation that meets every single one of it claims! I have oily skin with texture, fine lines, and large pores, this foundation blurs every single pore, doesn't sink into fine lines or wrinkles and looks absolutely flawless for 10+ hours! I have tried so many different kinds and brands of foundation and nothing would last or even stay on my skin especially in the hot summer weather. But this literally does not move at all, I set it with a powder and apply my other products on top and it still gives me such a smooth application. It covers all of my flaws, is build-able, and I have also noticed that once my naturals oils start to come through it makes the foundation look even better. If you have combo/oily skin you need to try this!
This foundation looks good upon initial application. However it quickly oxidizes, settles into fine lines, creases, looks dry, and cakes up. All the shades end up looking orange?? I have normal skin without dry patches or being oily. I also don't have texture but somehow this foundation made it look like I do. If this doesn't work on my normal skin I can't see this working on anyone who's dry or oily. Just not a good foundation spend your money somewhere else

I cannot say enough good things about this foundation! It's so underrated and the best foundation I have tried over the course of a year trying to find a replacement for Mac Pro longwear original formula. So Mac discontinued that foundation last year which was My holy grail for 12 years! I tried every foundation under the sun and could not find anything close to the Mac one. I settled for studio fix fluid ... it was okay, nothing special but did the job. Then comes wearing masks .... studio fix was terrible! Nothing stayed on my face, makeup ruined. I decided I again after an exhausting year of searching for a foundation I needed again to start looking so Dose of colors was probably the only foundation last year i did not try mainly because it's not sold in stores so I didn't want to deal with the wrong color etc. last week I bit the bullet and ordered online and when I tell you I could cry cuz I've finally found an amazing foundation (better than the pro longwear!). It doesn't rub off even on masks, stays looking beautiful all day and I don't get oily at all. Ugh! It's just perfect. Please don't even discontinue this foundation, I'll be heartbroken. Do yourself a favor and buy this ASAP if you're on the fence. Quick tip, if you are combo skin I recommend using a hydrating primer. I use the Fenty primer and it works beautifully.

I was having issues with my makeup lasting long because of the heat, oily skin and the face masks that i am required to use through my work shift. I was previously using the MAC foundation because it's been my go to for years but then i say alot of people raving about this foundation. I went over on their website talked to customer service via live chat so i can get my closest color match and it worked! I received this a week ago and i've been using it since then. I hardly have any lines on my face because of the face mask AND it's helping alot with my oily skin! SO YES TRY THIS FOUNDATION OUT.

Totally love it!! I'm oily skin and this foundation passed the test of resistance! I can literally go on for hours without re-touching my face with powder, it says is buildable to full coverage but haven't had the need to. This product can compete with Estee Lauder, Urban Decay All Nighter Foundation and Fenty some of my faves. Definitely a keeper and one I've been using every day now!
Kel from South Houston, Texas
I can't believe this foundation is so underrated! I've applied it with a foundation brush and a beauty blender and either way this is definitely a full coverage product.
The shade range is awesome and it truly does give a flawless finish even before applying any concealers!
The only con is this isn't a foundation you can just throw on in a rush with no prep. Without using a proper hydrating product and/or primer before applying it can come out looking very cakey and dry but if you're a skin prepper like myself you won't regret buying this foundation!
Tara from Wesley Chapel
Nice coverage, can look Cakey but I'm working on using different primers to find the right combo. Lasts all day!
Dominique from OC, California
This might be my favorite foundation. The color matches my skin tone. The foundation is very lightweight. It is more a satin matte but not drying. I feel like I am wearing nothing. Perfect for people with oily or combination skin.
Jill from Idaho
Perfect for a flawless finish. Full coverage but looks so natural and blends with the natural oils that are on your face with out getting greasy or moving around. Covers blemishes amazingly but doesn't look cakey. I have tried so many foundations and this is the first one I have ever felt did what I wanted it to. Will buy this again and again and recommend to everyone.
Bella R. from Oceanside
I love this foundation. I have dry, acne prone, eczema and sensitive skin. I loved this!! But the matching is so hard Because I bought one that is suppose to be my color but I had to reorder one that is 3 above it. So in the light category when I'm a medium type of gal. That's the only thing. Other than that it's an awesome foundation. It's like a velvet version of the ABH Foundation.
Makeupfab from Houston, TX
I absolutely love this foundation. It is lightweight, you can build it up and it stays matte. The only downside is it's not available for swatching in store so I had to reorder a couple times before finding my right shade. I am now on my second bottle and definitely will keep buying it.

If you are pale with dry skin run away from this foundation, it was patchy, clung to dry patches, and is soo drying. Definitely do not recommend
Loriley from Big Bear
I was looking for a dupe for Estée Lauder double wear cause I'm sick of having to buy the pump separately and I found it!! This has beautiful coverage, and a natural finish. I work 12 hour shifts and this makeup holds up so nicely. Already working on my second bottle! If you're contemplating this & love double wear....BUY IT!
An from WA
I have dry skin and I'm not the biggest fan of looking Matte or having matte skin. Let me tell you, this foundation has such a beautiful coverage! It not heavy but definitely buildable and leaves such a nice sayin finish. By the end of the day my skin has a nice glow, not oily, but glow and doesn't compare to my other foundations at all. And the shade range is a HUGE bonus
StephP from Rogers Arkansas
I was excited to try this , I love their liquid lipsticks . This does give you full coverage and looks beautiful when applied . But throughout the day it looks so heavy and cakey . Even my husband noticed it . It looked like I had apply so many layers when I didnt . Sadly I had to return this .
J from Vallejo, CA
I love this foundation! love the finish it gives and the healthy-looking color. Definitely not graying and photographs nicely. The finish is matte but natural looking
Kdubbb from St. Louis
I've been using Estée Lauder double wear for awhile but felt like my skin would get somewhat oily throughout the day, it started to feel heavy, and I always had to spot conceal or use multiple layers on dark spots. I went out on a whim and bought this and am so glad I did. I struggle with some redness from acne and dark spots from scars, and 1 pump of this foundation cover my entire face and all redness and darks spots. I pair it with the Smashbox oil and shine control primer and the combination is perfect. I have very oily skin and after 12 hours of wear, I have barely any oil on my face. Highly recommend!
Pimlico from Des Moines, Iowa
I have been looking for a foundation that makes my skin look like skin, yet provide some coverage and blurring texture. I ordered 106 and it definitely is darker that what I thought. I could have gone at least one or two shades lighter. But I don't have to use a lot of this foundation because it is pretty pigmented. I think that this is why it doesn't get cakey, because you don't have to apply much to get coverage. It looks smooth, it's like skin, and that was what I wanted. I don't think this foundation lasts all day. But in my opinion I would rather look great for four hours than like a cake face for 8 plus. I like it.
Molly from Ohio
I love DOC so I was really excited to try this bc I have oily acne prone skin. I do find it to be long wearing but this foundation only looks nice if you have flawless skin, it emphasized EVERY breakout and any type of texture, made me look SO SO OLD! I can only imagine this looking looking good on someone with oily but perfect skin. Will not repurchase this. Sad because I really wanted to love this :(
Mandee from Columbia, MO
I have combo skin with oily patches and dry patches. This made my nose (the oiliest part of my face) INSANELY DRY AND PATCHY. Exaggerated and clogged my pores and my skin is far from sensitive, my face can take a beating but this made my face look awful. I literally broke down and cried at work while wearing this foundation because of how awful I looked. Broke up around my nose and lips creased on my eyelids. I tried it twice once with a brush and once with a blender and both times it was awful. Oxidizes which was fine because I accidentally bought a shade too light and after oxidizing it was almost a perfect match.

This foundation is amazing on my mature but oily skin. It's blurring, smoothing, weightless and very skin like. It minimizes pores and makes them disappear. Does not settle into any lines nor does it cling to dry patches. My dry skinned best friend is also in love with it after trying mine. Could not recommend it enough.
Jeweliana from Oregon
Evens the skin tone with a satin finish and is super lightweight. With my normal to oil skin type after a few hours it looks very skin like. I only set my concealer with powered and use a setting spray over everything and I don't experience any transfer or creasing. Shade matching can be a little tricky, you definitely need to know your undertone and I do think when the foundation dries it deepens a little.
DZ from Illinois
I love this foundation because it is cruelty free and fragrance free.
When I first started using it every one would compliment me on how smooth and nice my skin looked. It pairs well with the Milk primer as well as the Tatcha silk canvas (my fav combo).
I have combo skin, with an oilier t zone in the summer and it leans a bit more dry in the winter. This foundation worked wonderfully for my skin type.
I do not have too much experience with FULL coverage foundations but can tell this coverage is a build-able one. I love how I can leave it light or build it up when I want a more dramatic look. I love the way it feels on my skin.
Dose of colors is an amazing brand.
The sponge is also great, but for the price I will just stick to Real Techniques and Elf. However I fell in LOVE the skinny tip.
Miliana from Detroit, MI
With no setting spray it's pretty matte however it transforms in a pleasant way with moisturizing setting spray. It has more of a natural finish that way but still lasts all day. I like that I can transition it from summer months when my skin is more oily to winter months when my skin is drier. It's got great coverage as well. I will repurchase.
Jenhub from Missouri
I have been using Loreal pro glow foundation in shade 202 for years since it first launched. I have not found a foundation I like nearly as much,especially not for the price. So I thought I would give this foundation a try. I have heard mixed reviews online so I just thought let me just try it. I got the shade 111, which is a perfect match for me. This foundation has a luxe bottle with a pump which is amazing. The formula is nice, not too runny, not too thick. My first impression upon application was wow, this formula blends like a DREAM. I used 1 pump and it covered my whole face no problem. I used half a pump for problem areas because my skin has been acting up lately and it layered beautifully. I have had this foundation on currently for 5 hours and it still looks flawless. Nothing has broken up, nothing looks dry or patchy. My skin type is normal to dry at times. The finish to me is a true satin/natural finish. It really does look like skin. The coverage is a true medium-medium/full if layered. Which for me, is a dream. If you are a MAC NC20, I would suggest shade 111, it is just less harsh of a yellow undertone than NC20. 111 is neutral. It looks great on my skin tone. So I hope this helps anyone who has been considering this foundation. I am personally VERY happy with my purchase and I think I just found my new favorite foundation, which for me is saying a lot.
Makeup Mommy from Seattle, WA
I CANNOT put this foundation down. It covers my skin to perfection and can be buildable if needed. I use about 1 pump and my entire face is covered. It's absolutely amazing and dries down well. I haven't found a foundation like this on the market in years. Good job, Anna from Dose of Colors!
Clara from Romulus, MI
I have been enjoying the Urban Decay Stay Naked foundation but became concerned that it was too drying for winter. I got this hoping for a great foundation for those dryer months. I guess I assumed that because the Dose of Colors concealer is so matte, that this one would be as well but I was mistaken. First off, I will say the color match is amazing. A tad darker than what I normally get, but I look healthier. It is a little thicker than the UD foundation, which I like, because the coverage is a little fuller. I applied it, set it lightly with a translucent matte powder, and applied setting spray. Overall the finish seemed like I had a healthy glow. I applied the matte powder twice throughout the day. Can't get it to look matte but at least I don't look super oily. It's not breaking up horribly like some foundations do. A bit on my nose, nothing crazy. But if I didn't have a travel powder in my purse, I would look a oily mess. I want to love this so badly, but I think it's not the best with oils. I'm still going to finish the bottle and see if it is different with less setting spray, applied with a brush, use a primer, etc. but I might not repurchase it. I don't hate this, and I should have done more research on the finish.
