Most Helpful Positive Review Might be a Holy Grail!
I am in my mid-30s and have fine lines as well as extremely acne-prone skin that breaks out if I use almost all drug store and high-end foundations, including Make-Up Forever HD and Lorac. I finally realized a couple months ago that silicone exacerbates my breakouts, especially dimethicone, which is in almost all liquid make-up and some powders, including most of the ones that claim to be more natural. While technically not a skin irritant, dimethicone, which gives make-up its slip, also creates a seal on your skin, trapping acne bacteria on your face. Over time, it can paradoxically dry out your skin, even though in the short term it seems to have a moisturizing effect.
Enter brands like RMS and Kjaer Weiss. While these work beautifully on women with great skin, the coverage is not great and has a tendency to fall throughout the day, sometimes within a matter of hours. Kjaer Weiss is more full coverage, but it also applies patchy and uneven, so I now mainly use the cream foundation as a concealer.
I started using the old formulation of Juice Beauty Foundation in Ivory. It didn't irritate my skin, but the coverage could be patchy, even using a Beauty Blender. It also had a tendency to fall. But I was so thankful to have some coverage without my skin breaking out more that I made do.
After using it all up, I went out and got the Phytopigments Serum Foundation in Cream as well as the Illuminating Primer. I am ecstatic. The consistency is ultra light-weight, but the coverage is amazing, without looking caked on or patchy. I am genuinely surprised that people aren't liking it, but I wonder if they are being told in the store that it definitely looks better if you are also using the primer. Additionally, you need to SHAKE WELL before each use. I applied with a foundation brush in sections and then used a Beauty Blender. I set with a powder and the Juice Make-Up Setting Spray. My skin looks absolutely radiant. It also looks really great on camera, which is a definite plus.
Most Helpful Critical Review Oxidation Issue
I have been a long time fan of Juice Beauty's Age Defying moisturizer, so when they launched this new foundation, I was quick to give it a go. I went into a nearby Ulta and spoke with a Juice Beauty contracted MUA. She was very friendly and helped me find a color match. She did stress that you should try the colors on your cheek and let it sit for several minutes to ensure best match. Unfortunately, after a couple days of use and no matter what kind of application technique I used. . . I've come to the following unfortunate conclusions. The color oxidizes horribly and you WILL look like you were poorly spray tanned with a color several shades too dark and orange. This product will make you feel very dried out and tug at your pores. This product dries quickly and makes blending very hard. Overall, this product needs continued reformulating and research before it is relaunched. Will be returning.

The bottle was open and the box it was in was damaged. It looked used and it was a mess.
It's very watery and you have to be careful when you press the pump because it will shoot out all over the place. I used a sponge and it worked pretty well, but is so thin.
it doesn't last long and I'm not crazy about it, but for a very light coverage to even out skin tone, it's fine. I won't repurchase it, though.

This foundation is phenomenal. I have dry, textured skin and this foundation makes my skin look smooth with a natural finish. It is very watery. You MUST shake well per instructions. And, the pump can sometimes squirt too fast. But, I just pump onto the back of my hand and use a nice foundation brush to apply. A little goes a long way. It stays all day - I do not use a finishing powder nor spray. The biggest downside is lack of colors/tones available. I am light skinned but cool undertone. Because their lighter selections are yellow toned, I am limited to going a little darker than I'd like. But, this foundation is truly amazing. No irritation on extremely sensitive skin. Covers redness bit still lets my freckles show. I highly recommend this foundation.

I am so surprised this product has so many poor reviews. This foundation is absolutely incredible. I put on 2 layers for full coverage and it lasted all day while I was at work. It is fantastic and my skin has never looked better. I am soooo happy with this product. If you have combo skin and dont like a matte foundation - this is the foundation for you!!!
Goes on great. Know how to use your applicators!
Rio from Colorado
Apply product one pump at a time with a brush by stippling it on. After make up is on face, use a damp beauty blender and dab in corners and over entire face to set product in. Apply light powder with dry brush.
🌱Plant base, Skincare & great coverage ALL IN ONE!
Parisa from LA, CA
Having this foundation on for hours doesn't make me feel guilty. It has great coverage (I personally pump twice for full coverage and once for low medium coverage which helps with redness) and it has all the benefits of a skincare serum, plus it doesn't settle on fine lines. Yes you do have to shake it and it will come out really watery therefore, pump carefully onto your brush. Also this foundation does tend to set quickly.
Skin type: dry, some pigmentation, & uneven skin tone (doesn't make my skin feel dry thanks to the ingredients)
Great for people without acne!
Mia from Charlottesville, VA
This product is growing on me! I've been playing with it and am figuring out that a little goes a long long way! Very pretty for people with clear skin and want a sheer look! It works well with my freckles! I put it lightly on my cheeks and nose and a little on my temple and redness on my face then I use a finishing powder! And it looks very natural.. but I've experienced it getting clumpy when I use too much product! But it's great and a great foundation for dry skin
Horrible and don't let a rep lie you into buying this!
Jeannette from Costa Mesa, CA
I am absolutely appalled by the treatment I just got by the staff at the Ulta store on 17th St. in Costa Mesa. I have been a very long client of this store and have spent thousands of dollars in this location. I had reviewed a primer, foundation and powder by Dermablend that has great ratings and reviews on line and on Youtube. While in the store a man by the name of Tony asked if he could help. I told hime about the great reviews for Dermablend. He told me he knew of something much better and directed me to Juice Beauty and said he was a make up artist and this is the best foundation and powder for full coverage and long lasting wear. I repeatedly asked if he was sure it was full coverage and long wearing, as it looked very watery and if it wore longer than the Dermablend. He said ABSOLUTELY. I told him I have so many foundations but I need a really full coverage for night. I got the product home and tried it on. HORRIBLE, streaky, like water, you can not even use with a sponge because it soaks it all up. It is very sheer coverage even after trying to build. Immediately, I went to Youtube to watch reviews and most had the same findings as me. The Ulta reviews are horrible. A lot of 1 star reviews STATING THAT SOMEONE FROM ULTA TALKED THEM OUT OF WHAT THEY WANTED INTO THIS FOUNDATION AND IT WAS HORRIBLE. Some later finding out the person at Ulta was a Juice rep. Infuriating!!! I went back to Ulta, got my original product and asked the cashier if Tony worked for the Juice Beauty brand. She said YES, and I explained how the product was the complete opposite of what I was purchasing and how Ulta should have "makeup line reps" disclose that so customers are not being swayed into a product thinking they are getting advice from a unbiased staff member who should be looking out for the clients true needs. During my discussion with the cashier, she completely ignored everything I said. Now feeling very irritated and frustrated that I am waisting my one day off driving back
natural but decent covrage
dre from richmond va
I'm surprised so many people dislike this product. I have combination skin most of the year that's normal with some dryness around my nose in the winter but normal the rest of the time. I started using this 2 years ago and love it. For me it doesn't settle into lines around my eyes or sit on top looking like a mask. it blends well & a little goes a long way. I normally don't use full coverage makeup other than an It Cosmetics CC so this is perfect for me and I'd compare it to Mac Mineralize liquid makeup, which is what I used but wanted a cruelty free option. it is very runny & that's the only "negative" to watch out for, I pump one half pump on my face directly and use a Mac stippling brush to blend it and it's perfect. On me it lasts all day without a primer no problem. Again, this is NOT fill coverage, it's light coverage and perfect if you want a natural look. I look like me just optimized, which is what I like. :) wish it had SPF in it but it's still a great non-drying foundstion. I always finish with a loose powder and I use the Juice Beauty one.
I been using this product for two years.
Alexa from Riverside, CA
I love everything about this product, having psoriasis of the scalp that travels to my forehead at times this does not irritate my skin at all
I would not buy this product again.
KiKi from PA
I bought this product because the Philosophy foundation I was using is no longer available.
The girl in the store said this would be similiar.She matched my skin color with the foundation. It couldn't be any worse. Makes my skin orange. It was fairly expensive and I am stuck with it.
Not worth it

I will be returning it tomorrow what a waste of money no coverage... goes on very sheer ,, it smells ,, and my face burns 😣 I don't see how anyone can wear this ,,,
CRM1315 from Tampa
Super watery even after shaking it, and no coverage. An employee talked me into trying this foundation since they did not stock este lauder in the store I went to. She said she switched form the double wear to this brand and it was even better than the double wear. I disagree and will be returning it ASAP.
Tigerkisses from Palmyra PA
Loved this when I bought it. It is impossible to pump out a small amount and it goes everywhere because it is the consistency of water. I am very disappointed that the color in the bottle separated completely in a month. I'll be returning it.
I will buy this base again!

Not made for long wear, hard to use
Bern from Boston
There was a consultant at my local store who showed me this product. In store, I felt like my skin looked warm with this foundation, it seemed like it matched my skin tone (I have a hard time finding the right color) and it felt light so I bought it. When I first used it, I didn't love it but figured that I just didn't know how to use it yet since it is very watery and dries really quickly. After about two uses I learned how to apply it quickly and evenly, and I really liked it! It was super fast and my skin looked like it had a natural glow. However, once I started wearing it that quickly changed. It did not stay on for more than maybe 2 hours. Immediately, any time I touched my face, cried, sweat, etc, it would come off. I ended up coming home from work with half of my face off. To add, I used setting powder & spray, and don't touch my face often. The color I had been matched was a darker color than I normally wear, and yet I ended up looking pale and sick (someone said this to me) even after reapplying. It also started to feel gross and sticky throughout the day, which was probably making me rub it more, causing more to wipe off. I wasn't wearing it in the sun or at the gym either, this was just after sitting at my desk all day. This foundation is basically only good during a pandemic because it only stays on if you leave it alone. I was really disappointed because I was excited to try this product and to have a better skincare line. I was looking at the rest of their line and decided against it.
Perfect for me
Rach from Chico, CA
LOVE this foundation! My skin is softer and dewier even the day after I wear it. I don't wear it everyday. Great sun protection, too. I am 48 and have combination skin, fair toned, some dark patches, lines under eyes. Use a foundation sponge for best application. A little goes a long way. Result is not matte enough for me, so I use a mineral powder on my nose and chin.
Flawless finish but streaks
Rach from Florida
Really liked how well this matched with my skin and how natural it looked. I quickly realized that anytime I cried, dripped sweat, or got wet, it streaks - badly! Sadly I won't be getting it again.
Not for Me

Does not give my skin a good look.
Abby from Madison, wo
I am 25 years old with combination skin and occasional acne. I had been using foundation such as MAC, too faced, Dior and L'Oréal. I was very happy with the foundations I was using but wanted a "cleaner" alternative. I love Juice Beauty skin care so I decided to try this foundation and I fell in love! It is a medium- full coverage foundation but looks natural! I don't have to set it with powder, which I love and even without powder, it barely transfers! It is a bit on the pricey end but I'm happy with the ingredients, it lasts all day, and looks beautiful!
kim from ny
great coverage i use it every day and it covers all redness completely
Do not waste your money!
Stac from MS
I bought this because I liked the ingredients, but this foundation rolls right off your face if you cry or get water splashed on you- even set with powder!

Love to mix with a primer or illuminator for a lighter finish. I use full strength for problem areas that need more coverage.
I would totally buy again
