Most Helpful Positive Review Really excited I like it
I wasn't sure I chose the right color at first - it went on lighter than I wanted but once I added blush and it dried down it oxidized to the perfect and expected color. I used a dense foundation brush to press it into my skin and I find the finish to be natural, as advertised, and quite nice, I'm usually a tinted moisturizer person but wanted medium coverage for pictures, special occasions, etc. and this will work great. I think it really could have a wider range in coverage from light to full - I did not try building it to full personally. I have larger pores and some texture (thanks to rosacea) that often make foundation very patchy and noticeable... this one did not. I also did find it fairly undetectable on the skin (except that it shows on baby hairs just like any other product, if you don't shave your face) and it worked well with every other product I used with it (ELF Flawless Finish Powder, Glossier Cloud Paint, Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush, PUR Highlighter, Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer)
I've had success with hyaluronic acid products in the past and this seems to lay on my skin the same as those. For reference, I'm 3.5 Cashew in Bare Minerals Skin Complexion Rescue (for tanner days), N40 Nude in Neutrogena Hydro Boost Skin Tint (for less tan days), and G10 in Glossier's Perfecting Skin Tint - in this I ordered N55
Most Helpful Critical Review Looks nice but broke me out
I really wanted to love this foundation, but ultimately it didn't work for me. The application and finish were pretty good so one star for each, although I would say this definitely needs a primer underneath, and I had to use more moisturizer than usual to get it to work. I would definitely NOT call this a hydrating foundation, if anything it left me feeling more dry than usual. All that said, the coverage and finish on it were great - my skin still looked like skin (not overly cakey or too full coverage), but it evened everything out and lasted all day. Unfortunately, it also made me break out consistently, so I will not continue to use it. Do not recommend if you are even a little acne prone - I rarely ever break out, and this still gave me quite a few clogged pores.

Lyss from NJ
i heard great things about this foundation and i REALLY wanted to love it. i have dry skin and i had high hopes because it has hyaluronic acid as an ingredient. i've given it many tries but sadly it makes me look super flakey, to the point where my skin looks better without any makeup on.

Not for dry skin. Broke me out.
Love it !!!
Dreaa from Rialto
I have really dry skin and have some acne but this foundation makes my skin look smooth. I love how it doesn't feel dry.
Sasha from Alaska
Fees light on your face but has full coverage. It lasts all day with the hyaluronic primer and setting spray.
i would buy this again

good for a light foundation
Nice finish but broke me out
SAPH from Chicago
I like the finish on this foundation but it broke me out pretty bad. I have bumps all over my forehead now :( My skin is on the sensitive side but this broke me out in my T-zone which has never happened. Disappointed as it has a natural finish!
Decent foundation but nothing special
Kel from Pittsburgh
I was hoping this would replace my last favorite foundation from physician's formula which has been discontinued. I like that this foundation is cruelty free and fragrance free, which can be hard to find. The coverage is medium buildable and the shade Light 55 Neutral was perfect for me. Unfortunately I didn't find this foundation to give the healthy glow I wanted. It exaggerated my texture and doesn't really sink into the skin. It just sits on the surface and will transfer to EVERYTHING if you don't set it with a powder. Not terrible, but not worth repurchasing.
A from Baltimore
I am in LOVE with this foundation. I have oily / acne prone skin and this is the only foundation that hasnt broken me out AND covers my acne spotting. Very easy to build and has a good finish. I recommend this product to everyone!
Doesn't Irritate My Sensitive Skin!
Seazul from America
I love this foundation so much. It's lightweight and buildable. It doesn't go up to full coverage but yes, definitely medium coverage. I like using it with a beauty sponge over a brush because I have dry skin. My skin is also sensitive and acne-prone. This hasn't irritated my skin at all! It matches my skin tone very well too. If you're a NC30 in Mac or even the shade M12w in the Pretty Fresh Tinted Moisturizer... 80W is your perfect match in this!! I also wanna add that it blends into the skin like a dream and has a satin finish ... which you still want to lightly powder, by the way. It lasts well throughout the day too.
T from Texas
This is such a nice foundation. Don't let the word hydrating scare you. I have oily skin and this doesn't make me look oily in any way. Nice coverage, matte/natural finish, very light feeling on the skin. Seriously one of my new favs! Can't say enough good things!
Good product for the price
Colleen R from Bullhead city Arizona
Product is reasonably priced and good coverage
So good! Love this foundation. Normal Skin.
Hannah from Oklahoma
I absolutely love this foundation. Although i do have to admit if you have oily skin this might not work for you (you might be able to use it with a heavier bake/powder technique) it was a little shinier than i liked when i used it with a light weight powder. It looked beautiful on the skin and the shade i got was a perfect match. I was ecstatic to have been able to pick a shade true to my tone. The colors on the boxes are very accurate. Super happy with this one!
Looks good, but clogs pores
Savanna from Illinois
I applied this with both a beauty blender and brush but the beauty blender did a better job in my opinion. After applying, it looks really good but tends to rub off on clothes (when i hug my boyfriend) and my glasses. After a full day of wear, and a good cleanse, I noticed that my pores were more clogged than normal. Maybe I am applying too thick of a layer but this is just my observation.
JenGill from CA
I really love the hydration this foundation provides, it's very buildable and leaves you with a healthy glow.
Nikki from South dakota

Maria from Melrose mn

Great 1st foundation for my teenager-light color coverage/bl
Msorange from Elizabethton TN
Great 1st foundation for my teenager who is experimenting with makeup. Very light coverage/color blends easily with skin tone. Made in USA by California based company.
Good color match and coverage
isszy from greeley, co
I picked this up in store and just randomly guessed my color. For once, it's a shade that matches me. It's medium coverage but lightweight and moisturizing. DO NOT USE A SILICONE BASED PRIMER WITH THIS like a putty, it will slide off your face. I used Milks Hydrogriping primer and it looks so good together, not cakey and super fresh. For the price, it's totally worth it. I can't believe I've been spending 40 bucks for foundation when there was this option.
Save your $$
Zoeb from Seattle
Bought this because I heard it was a dupe for Armani Luminous Silk. It is NOT. Not even close. Caked up especially on dry patches, transferred even with my full proof Milk setting spray, and just looked all around bleh after 6 hours of wear.
I love this foundation
Madi from Tupelo, MS
I love this foundation
It's not good at all
SwatchQueen from New York
First inside the bottle I could see separation of colors and mine has powerful Pink color so I need to shake it for 10 mins, I don't have that time. 125N is incredibly red! Not neutral but Red! I could never find my match from Colourpop base.
Dont need much!
Midwestgal from IA - Iowa
It has a very pretty finish. I've used it with a couple of different primers without issue. It doesn't seem to settle into fine lines, but you still will see your skin's natural texture underneath it. I like that because it's more of a natural finish. I can only use a 1/2 of a pump because a full pump is way too much coverage for me. Note that it will fade after about 10 hours. I touch up with a powder foundation when that happens and it does the trick. Good to know if you have a long day ahead of you.
It's really an impressive foundation, and not just impressive "for the money." Overall very good.
