Most Helpful Positive Review LOVE THIS
I have super dry skin, so I have to mix a liquid glow with this foundation or moisturizer heavily before application. But it's worth it for the skin-like look and long lasting application I get from this product. I do recommend buying a shade lighter because it does oxidize a shade or two darker after a couple minutes (see photo). I already repurchased this!
Most Helpful Critical Review Good, but it has a strong fragrance
This foundation does need to be applied and blended quickly. It dries down matte and stays put once dry. I was impressed that the matte finish lasted all day. I have light ivory skin but a cooler undertone. The 02 shade was too dark for me. There was also a strong baby powder fragrance that I don't like. This will be a return for me. But for those on the hunt for a truly matte and lasting foundation, I would recommend this!

Brittney from Indianapolis, IN
LOVE LOVE LOVE I have purchased all the expensive foundation...I'm not afraid to spend $40 on foundation. However, I wanted one that I could apply even though I wasn't going anywhere. So I decided to try this on a whim, bc of price, and I can't be more happy. It goes on smooth and lasts all day.
My absolute favorite foundation!
Katrina from Ferndale, MI
This foundation is great! Full coverage, not a super matte finish, doesn't break me out, affordable. I mean, it's just perfect!
Kkay from Evans Georgia
I was wearing Double wear because it's long wearing and better for mature skin but can sometimes settle in pores. Catrice stays on, doesn't settle in my pores and is much cheaper!
Olive tone match!
Swanmom from Denver, co
I love this product. I have tried every foundation imaginable. Nothing matches my pale olive undertone. Finally. It smells great, but it doesn't linger. It covers really well, but is weightless. I have sensitive skin that is oily on my t-zone and dry everywhere else. I can where this to the gym. Love it!
Dani from Kansas
I set this foundation with bellápierre's banana setting powder and it created a really nice pore less look! One thing about this product is that it sets into your skin very quickly. So apply and blend to one spot of your face at a time and work your way around. It blended best with a damp makeup sponge over a dry sponge or a brush. If applied this way I found it goes on the easiest and most flawless (less splotchy). Will most likely buy again and already favor it over more high end products!l I have tried!!
It's a nice foundation but it oxidized a lot on me.
Nikki from Broomall Pa
My main complaint is that it oxidizes like crazy so get a shade or few shades lighter !!
Loved the application and coverage but it oxidized bad.
N from Portland, OR
It's a great foundation but the lightest shade oxidized super dark and orange on my fair skin. Other than that it wasn't cakey and went on smoothly.
Reenay from Cincinnati
I have been trying a bunch of different foundations but to me most just look " cakey " but this foundation specially for the price is AMAZING! I use a brush and then a blend ball
I would buy this again!
Stephanie H from Lake Havasu City , AZ
Used this with a brush and sponge. It's great either way.

sits nice doesnt slip off ! rubs off a little with masks :(( as does any i think
Works better than expensive foundations
Aisha from Jersey
I love this foundation. I've tried many in every price range and this is comparable if not better than expensive ones. It covers blemishes and dark circles often even without concealer. I bought two shades. One for summer and one for winter
Only one problem with this foundation
Lingalew from Indiana
And that's that they don't make more shades. Otherwise it's like double wear but three times cheaper. Lasts all day. Looks amazing. Great for oily skin that needs a Matte foundation.
I had to buy two colors to get the right shade. But oh well. That's cheaper than what I have been spending on nars, bare minerals, tarte, and Estée Lauder.
I love this!!!
Jenn from Conneaut, Oh
This matched my skin perfectly and stayed on all day long!! This is perfect for my dry/oily skin. I used to use the NARS long radiant wear and I love that one but I think I love this just a bit more
jmarz from ri
goes on like anastasia or rare beauty foundation for a fraction of the price. great coverage, and smooth application. 10/10 recommend this dupe!
I love this foundation!!!!
KayMichelle from Maine
I love this foundation, I haven't used it on its own yet, but I mixed it with another foundation and let me tell you!! Wow!!! I had such a nice smooth looking face. Now I'm placing an order for 2 more as backups because I'm afraid of losing this foundation as an option. I love it!!! Please don't discontinue this product 🙏
Kait from Florida, USA
I was surprised by how much I love this foundation. I was expecting something functional but not exceptional at its price point, but it's such higher quality than the price would indicate! It has great build-ability and can be layered for higher coverage without it becoming cakey of tacky. It feels comfortable and lightweight even after I built it up for high coverage, and I personally didn't find it itchy or irritating while wearing my face mask (could be a coincidence, but I thought it was worth noting).
Feels Great But Causes Acne
Courtney from Knoxville, TN
The shade of this formula and the way is feels on the skin was fine. I have oily skin and this did not turn into an oil slick by the end of the day, which was nice. I did have to use powder to set it. My biggest complaint and the one that caused me to have to return it is that it caused very painful cystic acne. I haven't had a foundation cause this much pain in years. I even thought it was something else I was doing, but every time I took a break from this for a few days it would clear up. So sad it didn't work for me because I liked everything else about it.
Instant Holy Grail
Peaches from Los Angeles
I am 46 years old with combination textured skin. Was on a forever hunt for the perfect foundation. There are plenty of "pretty good, as long as I use the right primer/moisturizer combo and brush, etc". There has always been extra work involved to make foundations work for me. Saw the good reviews and the price was so reasonable compared to my other "pretty good" foundations. Upon my first application, I was honestly shook! Seriously smoothing, mattifying, and full coverage! It really does look and feel like a second skin... the perfect flawless I've always dreamed of. Homerun, Catrice!
madalyn from michigan
i heard amazing things about this foundation, so of course i had to try it! AND I LOVE IT it looks flawless on my skin and doesn't transfer onto my mask when wearing it compared to others i've used
Dupe for double wear
Brittany from Winston Salem
AMAZING. This is super pigmented and very thin. Slight fragrance but it doesn't bother my sensitive skin. I need something to last all day and this is way better than Estée Lauder in my opinion. Found my new holy grail foundation.
Emily rose from Ohio
I promise you I have tried almost every foundation on the market high end and low end brands and this by far makes my skin looks flawless and it has long wear! Not sure why this isn't hyped up more because it is definitely my new go to plus can't go wrong for the price.
Better than any of the high dollar foundations
Blondareli from Denver to Miami
This is the holy grail of foundations. I will definitely be the first to say that finding a foundation for mature skin is a different game than it was when I was looking for my 20s. This foundation does it all it's not too thick but it definitely is full coverage. Not trying to belittle ilmakiage, but catrice is everything they promised their foundation would be. Look no further, this is the one
Em from Chicago
I have tried many foundations from drug store to high end brands. Every foundation I have tried looks bad after a few hours. It either separated, slides off or looks cakey. This foundation looks flawless . Yes, I did have to do a touch up in my t-zone, but it still lasted me the whole day without any issues. It is also very light weight on the face. Also my everyday foundation was the too faced peach perfect foundation hands down love it, but I like this one better. Color selection was a little hard on Ulta's website but if you go onto catrice's website you find your match there.
I like it
Laura from Minnesota
I like this for the price point. Has good coverage and a little goes a long way. It is a bit more runny than I expected-fair warning.
My new go to!
Amanda J from Minnesota
I have tried MANY, and I mean more then I am happy to admit, high end foundations. THIS, blows them all out of the water. Lightweight, buildable coverage. and it doesn't sink into my fine lines or pores!
