Most Helpful Positive Review Loveeee this foundation!!!!
I received this foundation compliments of NYX and Influenster for testing purposes. Yes I received it for FREE but my thoughts on the product are 100% truthful! I loveeeeeeeee this foundation! It is full freaking coverage and the price point is great! I will definitely be repurchasing! I received the color mahogany which was a shade to dark but I made it work and when I tell y'all I received so many compliments during the day about how even my skin looked!!! Love love love NYX! They are always creating products that are staples in my beauty regime!

I'm sorry to NYX and Alissa, but this foundation is definitely the worst one I've tried in a really long time. It was just too matte for me, and I don't even have dry skin. On one side of my face I tried it without the CSWS primer, and on the other side I tried it with. I MUCH prefer the side without the primer. Super matte primer + super matte foundation = the most patchy, cakey nightmare I've ever had on my face. I think I could make this foundation work with a very hydrating moisturizer and primer, but that's the only time I would attempt to use this again. I also wouldn't say this is full coverage- it's more of a medium, which is fine. You can definitely build it up, and it remains feeling lightweight which is good.
The color that was sent to me was alabaster - which is a little too light for me (for reference, I use the Clinique beyond perfecting in the shade Breeze, and Nars Mont Blanc).
I was sent this foundation and primer for free by Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion of these products.

This soaked right into my pores and looked absolutely awful. It just accentuated every tiny spec of dryness, pores and imperfection of any kind. I actually looked better without any makeup on than with this. YIKES.

I'm usually one to not have a hard time with foundations ever. As soon as I started applying this, I instantly looked in the mirror and hated it. It clings to dry patches, doesn't blend well, it's just awful. i'll definitely be returning this. Id give it 0 stars if I could. Please don't waste your money unless you have very oily skin. (P.S. my skin was prepped with moisturizer and a hydrating primer)
Good coverage but not my favorite
Erin from Sarasota, florida
I like the coverage and the fact that I don't need to really set it with powder but it dries quickly making it hard to blend and sticks to dry areas and looks Cakey.
You'll have to try for yourself
Michi from SD
This foundation is amazing, and I would recommend, but!!! Within a month of having it the pump has stopped working and I can't get the bottle open, so I am stuck with a product I love but can't use. I am on the fence about recommending the product is good, but the packaging could be terrible,
I wouldn't recommend anyone buying this

The foundation is watery. Goes on like water
Taylor from California, MD
I'm really picky about my foundations and I have been using the same foundation for YEARS which was the benefit hello happy flawless filter liquid foundation; however they stopped making it and I finally ran out of my last bottle. I bought this one a couple weeks ago because the textures were similar when I tested it. I also don't like completely matte foundation so I was a bit skeptical. Here's the trick. I use the Smashbox Primerizer + elf luminous putty primer with this foundation and it is beautiful!! Instead of super matte the luminous primer makes it almost satin like on the skin and I have no creasing. I wore it ALL day for a holiday/my birthday event and even by the end of the night my foundation held up amazing. Literally nothing but compliments. But if you like the matte look use whatever primer is your go to and I swear it'll look beautiful. Everyone's skin is different though so good luck! This will now be my go to until this line is canceled (hopefully never) as well.
Great for my OILY SKIN
Cee Cheeks from STL
First off, I can't see this foundation being good for anything but oily skin. I decided to try this because I already had the concealer that matches me well. I made sure to prep my skin with moisturizer and primer before using this product and was so amazed at how nicely it went on my skin. The consistency is thin but I think that helps it to spread easier on the skin. It dries nice and matte and I BARELY had any oil seep through. Not only that, but there's also very little transfer…my $43 foundation fails miserably in those departments. I will definitely use a bit more moisturizer because my face did feel (not look) a tiny bit dry in some places. I definitely recommend if you have oily skin!
Destiny from Roseville, MN
I usually don't write reviews, but I had to for this foundation! The coverage is medium-high and builds beautifully. It looks very skin-like and wears for a long time. I wear the NYX honeydew primer underneath it, which I think makes it less matte and more of a natural finish. If you haven't tried it, you definitely should!!
Great for Oily Skin
Cierra from St. Charles, MO
I love this foundation! This foundation last and looks great after a 8hr work day. This foundation is more for oily skin I feel. I find myself not looking cakey.
L8382 from USA
I'm only giving it one star because the color match was right on. Otherwise it comes out very watery and it just CLINGS to every single tiny spec of dry skin. By noon my face looks oily and splotchy and disgusting and there is no fixing it.
Color is inaccurately listed
Juno from Cincinnati Ohio
I like the foundation, it lays nicely on the skin, but I bought the shade light ivory because I have very cool pink undertones. Light ivory is listed as having pink undertones on the website, but it is very warm in person. It should be changed.
This one's a winner
Michelle L. from Los Angeles ca
After long trial and error on so called long wear foundations, have to say this one takes the win! From high end to drugstore this one out preforms them all. Only other foundation I can vouch for that works well is the revlon color stay, used that for years. This one out preforms even that , let's say I will be switching!
This just wasn't for me
Dee, Geek of Makeup from Saint Paul, MN
I tried this product out and it just wasn't for me. The pigmentation was a little off on my skin, in addition, I like that it is blend-able and build-able, light to medium coverage. It can be patchy and or tacky on my face during the day depending on the weather too.
I like that it goes on smoothly, however it does not cover my discolorations and freckles that well. It does not really cover my pimples and scars well and it isn't long wear so you do have to retouch it within that 8 hour wear.
It can cause breakouts at times and sometimes it doesn't depending on how you apply it and on what weather day you wear it on.
My lifetime foundation
Shay.96 from Houston, Texas
Finally found a non greasy skin blending foundation that doesn't need setting powder & looks perfectly natural on my tan oily skin! Never stop making these please😍❤️
Anna from Detroit
This is now my favorite drugstore foundation. I am absolutely in LOVE. The shade (Warm Caramel) matches me perfectly. It's easy to blend and will cover up imperfections if needed. Definitely didn't try for 24 hours and I did have to blot my t-zone just a little bit, but other than that it will stay matte all day
Controls my oily skin
Nee from South Carolina
Not only does the shade mocha match me but this foundation is perfect for my oily skin. I still have to blot my t-zone but this lasts longer than most of my other foundations. I don't have to blot all day long.
Denise M from Denver
Great foundation. Keeps me matte most of the day but still needs a touch up towards the end of the day which is understandable due to my oily skin. Goes on great with a sponge. Only thing I dont like is the pump it comes with. Foundation stays in there and dries up. Only reason why it's 4 stars.
Love This Foundation!!!!
Elle from Dover Delaware
Amazing price, great quality and it matches my skin perfectly!!! It last all day even wearing the face mask!
Not full coverage
clf from New York
This is not full coverage! Goes on very watery and does not cover much of anything!
Step78 from Chicago
Works best using a sponge, I found using a brush made it look streaky. I feel it provided medium coverage for me which is fine, I have combo skin and it kept me matte all day! Not even my fenty foundation has been able to do that, I'm also 36 and it did not emphasize my fine lines starting. However I feel like the neutral shade is more of a cool tone. I tried the shade "light", the shade vanilla looks more neutral to me which I will try next time.
Best for Oily skin
kaceybear from Paragould, AR
I have super oily skin and this foundation stays put all day. The coverage is amazing without looking cakes. I prefer this over luxury brands.
lorena from janesville
was a completely different color than the bottle and made me orange i will never buy this again. it has okay cover but it is not full.
Foundation is great. Ultas color match not so much
MerlinsMom from NY
This is a good buildable foundation you can wear it for a long time before it creases and cracks. I ordered a new shade for my summer time glow using ultas color match camera system and lets just say I'd never get tan enough to wear this color it's way to dark. Save your money and go to the store to pick out your shade if you're unsure!
Good Full Coverage Foundation
Lyndy P. from Columbus, GA
Not the best foundation ever, but for the price it is pretty good. It definitely stays on and is full coverage, but is a little more greasy than I would like. Overall, especially this summer, I enjoyed using this foundation.
Alli986 from U.S.
I have oily skin and this works very well. It cakes a bit but if you use less of it then it's fine. It's also shiny unless you put powder over it, but besides that, it works great. Would buy again
