Most Helpful Positive Review This blew me away!
I tried this product in-store after an Ulta employee told me they had an orientation about the product and that it was worth a try. I was curious about the foundation but was hesitant. Either way, I tried it and was STUNNED by how well shade TG6 matched my skin. It blended right in.
So, I bought it, took it home, and tried it on the next day when I went to school. The foundation gave me amazing matte coverage with very little effort and the concealer wand is a neat little bonus, although I don't use it much for that. It held up outstandingly well in the hot South Florida humidity and did a really good job controlling my oils. At the end of the night, my forehead was only very mildly dewy instead of the oil slick it usually can be.
What I really like is that it's matte but doesn't make my face feel tight and it also feels surprisingly light. Sometimes I forget I have the stuff on. If I want a more "natural" look, I'll apply it with a sponge and for a more flawless look, I'll use a kabuki brush. Sometimes I'll just apply the foundation, bronzer, mascara, and lipgloss and I am good to go. I've had no breakouts or side effects from using it, but I do advise to wear sun-protection while wearing during the day due to a few of the ingredients, which can make skin sensitive to the sun.
Long story short: this is currently now my holy grail foundation for my oily-combo skin. I love it better than my Fenty Pro Filt'r and it does everything I need it to do without fuss. Pur came through with this one.
Most Helpful Critical Review So dry
This product has great reviews and I was really excited to try it out. I have dry skin, and this foundation dried me out so much. It looked great when I first put it on. After about an hour my face started hurting it was so dry. This foundation just pulled all the moisture out of my skin. I know it is Matte, but it dried so much that my skin just started looking really cakey and flakey. By hour four in this foundation I had to take it off. I have tried so hard to like this foundation. I have tried multiple different primers and nothing helps. I have used it in many different ways (From full face to just as a concealer), and it is always very drying and just looks cakey after a couple hours. Also this foundation oxidizes on my skin very easily. I have worn this at least ten different times and I always end up looking cakey and orange. I am finally giving up on this foundation and just accepting that it isn't for me...

I'm branching out and trying new foundations I haven't before and after trying about 10 or so different brands this one might be my favourite. It is very good. If you have issues with it getting in your pores I recommend using a face primer since that is very important to begin with. I Love how I don't have to wait a long time for it to dry so I don't have to deal with it being tacky. If you feel like it makes you seem cakey and dry I would recommend using moisturizers and primers so it isn't getting INTO the pores and so your face won't already be dry. Using a hydrating spray is also a good idea.
Really great foundation
Brandy from Michigan
The best foundation I've found hands down and I've tried a lot. It's a good medium to full coverage, but doesn't go on caky. It lasts well through the day and is good for oily prone skin. The price is good too compared to other brands. Definitely worth trying, give it a go.
Eli from Chicago
It was very smooth to apply but it looked cake-y, at least on me and had a yellow undertone to it. Made me look orange.
Love this foundation
Henny from NYC
I love this foundation! I regret not buying it sooner!! It looks beautiful on the skin & lasts all day. Great coverage and doesnt feel heavy on my dry skin. I recommend this
Perfect for me
Angie from Fort Worth
I have tried many foundation products trying to cover my rosacea without my oily skin causing the foundation to smear on my face. This product is not oily at all! It stays on my face all day, doesn't rub off and provides a nice coverage without feeling thick. I have only been using it for a week, but so far, I love it!
Not what I expected
CarlyP from Iowa
Wanted another foundation to use so I don't go through my EL Double Wear so fast and this was recommended by an Ulta employee. This is definitely not matte, dewy for sure. Transferred all over my tissue when I blotted so I would say definitely not oily skin friendly or transfer resistant. Also when I used the pump the product came out super runny but was fine when I used the doe foot. Looks nice just too oily and dewy looking for my preference.
Not a fan
Elle from Alpharetta
This was recommended when I asked for help looking for a new foundation. It dries quickly so you have to blend it quick. It makes every single one of my pores stand out and looks too cakey.
Absolutely love it
Kristen from Denver, CO
This foundation looks so great. Looks pretty good on it's own, even better with setting powder. I have incredibly sensitive, acne prone, combination skin and this stuff never irritates my skin. Absolutely worth it.
I would not buy this again, not for me!
Cyn-D from Phoenix, Arizona
Very thick and would make a face look cakey. Who wants that..yes, I blended but I wanted a more natural look and didnt get that at all, looked like I had foundation on and its supposed to look more natural, very very thick even with just a dab
Jessica from Dallas, Tx
This foundation has wonderful coverage, but it does oxidize. It's been tricky finding my shade. I have oily skin and if I don't use a mattifying primer my face gets oily. With a primer it's fine.
Aly from Alabama
I was looking for Mac foundation, but I guess Ulta doesn't carry it anymore.. so I asked an employee what they recommended and was told this was amazing for matte and full coverage.
While those things are true, this makeup sets into literally EVERY SINGLE pore you have. I've had to start using the Elf poreless putty with it. Wouldn't buy again.
It held up to a 12 hour day at work!
Danii from NE
I got this during Ultas 21 days of beauty sale this year and I am very impressed!!
I work as a bartender in a busy restaurant that's only getting busier now that covid restrictions are being lifted. Yesterday I put this foundation on at 8:30am and didnt get back home until 11pm and let me tell you how amazed I was when I looked in the mirror. After over 14 hours of wear with NO TOUCH UPS, it barely budged! Obviously there was a some creasing in my forehead and under my eyes but with my amount of smiling and facial expressions I make at work, with all the oil in the humid air, plus sweat from running around, I'll take it as a victory.
Ive only used this foundation a handful of times now but so far it hasn't caused any major breakouts. I'd consider it pretty full coverage and buildable if you're looking for *FULL* full coverage. With that in mind, the more you use the, more likely it'll crease on you.
I stick with a pump and a half for my entire face and neck and typically still have a little left on the back of my hand afterwards. It's a bit pricy compared to what I used to wear (infallible pro-glo) but taking into consideration the amount of product I use and how I went over 14 hours with no touch ups, it's worth the money for me.
4 stars because it does take a little finesse to apply, but nothing serious. I recommend first applying with a brush to spread and going back in with a sponge to blend any streaks.
Jordy from New Mexico
This is such a beautiful foundation!
Wears well, great coverage, light feeling on the skin!
Definitely worth a try!

I have combo/oily skin so I often hesitate to purchase new foundations. I heard a few reviews and decided I needed to test it out for myself—I'm not disappointed in the slightest! I continue to go to this foundation all the time. Personally, I have found this to wear very nicely, with or without the on and off of a mask. Even when the end of a long day approaches, it almost "fades" nicely rather than completely rubbing off in areas.
I recommend this to everyone in my life!
Also: I am very fair skinned. I can use the lightest shades just fine. Mainly LN1, LN2 works as well. If needed I use a brightening powder.
I would love this product if they could match my skin color
Jay from Florida
I would love this product but due to not being able to match my skin color it was to pale and was not able to use it at a movie premier my son was in
Made my pores look huge
Laurah217 from SoCal
I wanted to like this, but ultimately I had to return it. It immediately settled into my pores and made them look huge. I had used a pore blurring primer prior to applying it. It also has absolutely no staying power, it rubbed off all over the inside of my mask.
Love this full coverage foundation.
Radiant2 from New York
Love the full coverage
not for me!
Minnie from Fort Worth Texas
It looks caked on my skin. Did not like it at all.
Great formula BUT
Audrey from FL
I love the formula of this foundation. I never experienced a foundation literally blur my skin until this one!! It has amazing coverage, but it's easy to sheer out or build up depending on your preference. I'd say this is best for combo-oily skin; you definitely want to moisturize beforehand if you're more dry. The ONLY reason I'm taking off a star is because the lightest shade is still too dark!!!! You'd think that a foundation that boasts 100 shades would have something for us ghosties, but that is not the case which is super disappointing. Despite that, it's still probably my favorite foundation because of the formula and coverage.
Yes if I can find the right color for my face.
Michelle from Gadsden
The color wasn't right. It a little bit Darmerkrankungen on my face. The woman didn't pick The right one color for my skin.
Kwales from Naperville, IL
Perfect foundation for those who don't like to make a huge fuss but want ample coverage. Goes on like lotion and gives great coverage.
Full coverage love
Tphaeulz from Ridgeland, MS
I love the coverage and the fact that it can also be used as a concealer.
Toyia from Abington Pennsylvania
This foundation is beautiful. It is one of my top 3 favorites.I have very normal skin. If I had to choose I would say that I lean more toward dry. In my opinion this foundation would work for any skin type. It has great coverage while still leaving your skin looking like skin. I have used this foundation with several different primers (drugstore, mid range and high-end and it worked well with all of them. The shade range is one of the best I have ever seen. I can use multiple shades. I have also used this foundation as a concealer, and I was pleased with the results. If you are thinking about it buying it, just do it!
Allie from Wisconsin
This stuff it worth EVERY penny! I have normal to combo skin. This is full coverage without creasing or looking cakey.
