Rated 4.27 out of 5 stars
I have huge pores and very oily skin. I'm 39 years old and noticing my fine lines showing with my usual favorite foundation. Also my foundation always lifts off my face about an hour after wearing it. I decided that I should try something different. I decided to give this serum a go. At first glance it seemed a little greasy and hard to blend, but after a 20 seconds or so the greasiness fades and the covering starts to kick in. I don't like a shiny face so I did apply a tiny bit of setting powder along with some blush and it looked very natural and matte, but not cakey. The real test was how long would it take to lift off my face due to my excessive oiliness. It's been almost 8 hours and NO sign of lifting or shine! That alone makes it worth it for me! I wear the lightest color Nude 0.5-2 and it's pretty close to my skin tone. I have a yellow undertone which is difficult to find pale shades in, but this still looks pretty natural on me. Overall, I'm very pleased with this serum. I dont mind the dropper, because pumps usually put out too much foundation, especially if I want to add a little more coverage to certain spots on my face.
Great formulation for a product like this. The color choices are for broad ranges of shades and I'm pleased to say that despite how light and cool I am, the color worked great for me. The product stays on longer than the foundation balm, especially when set with a spray. I do not like how it performs when set with powder. I have 2 complaints: 1) the product goes on streaky with a brush and its too thin for a sponge so I put it on with a brush and then go back over with a damp sponge to tap out all the streaks. 2) the packaging is a disaster. Total mess. Fortunately I was able to find a pump online that is compatible with the bottle but the pump should be part of the packaging.
Feedback for Loreal Product Management: I get why you went with the dropper bottle. It helps the product stand apart visually from other foundations in the Loreal line and it reminds me of a serum bottle. But I suspect most of your customers are using this like a foundation, not a serum. And since the packaging is such a mess you're not likely to get 2nd time purchasers who have lots of other choices. I recommend switching to a pump top or a soft pump tube and make the pump dispense a tiny amount - like when a skincare serum comes with a pump. Maybe we'll need 3-4 pumps of product to cover the face (given how much product stays on the brush or sponge), but at least it won't make such a brutal mess of our sinks/desks/makeup stations at home.

I have decent complexion and often times dont even like how heavy coverage looks on my skin so this is perfect. Has that second-skin feel and look which is honestly perfect for those who want that. Wish it came with a true dropper or pump as its hard to dispense the last few uses. I cant go back to normal foundation!! serum foundation FTW!

It has the perfect amount of coverage and doesnt leave my skin too oily. Ive had the dropper fall off twice though.. packaging sucks unfortunately

Very nice light weight tinted serum. Leaves face hydrated and nice smooth finish. Can be used with a brush for fingers. I bought a pump for my bottle and it's so much neater. OCD here. Reminds me of Armani tinted moisturizer.

The product is absolutely amazing!
The packaging is terrible. Dropper doesn't work. It needs to be in a pump or tube.
Pleeeeeease change the packaging!

This is a great product. You can wear alone or under your makeup.

Product is great but the dropper is horrible. Why not add a pump? Th product is too thick for a dropper.
Meech from Raleigh NC
Loved this at first then noticed of drying out my skin terribly within a couple days. Stopped then tried again to have same situation. Aged my normal/combo skin terribly. Will not be using again.

Love this product. Erases flaws and reduces lines. I am 53 years young and it takes 10 years off my face. I just wish it was a pump bottle and not a dropper.
Michelle L. from California
Works well on my combo skin type, and doesnt settle into fine lines. Only downfall are the shades are not the best, lightest shade runs a bit too pink. Otherwise wears all day, like better than the maybelline one.

Medium coverage and very lightweight!

I have always had trouble finding a foundation that not only matches my skin tone but one that will not cling to my dry skin. I bought this on a whim and am so happy I gave it a shot. Since I have been using it my skin has looked so good, I have gotten so many compliments! It is a more light coverage foundation but you can add more if you need more coverage. It lasts all day and looks just as good after work as it did before.
Lane from Spokane Valley
Product is light weight & feels nice on the skin. My only complaint is the dropper! Makesit really hard to apply the serum.
Ashley from Naples Florida
Its does look super pretty on your skin. But i have acne prone skin and this broke me out in cystic acne otherwise i would have loved it.
Stacy from Denver, CO
I literally only use the Elf hydrogrip to prep and this product stays on, keeps oil away (not forever but lasts me the full work day), and it lets my skin breathe!! I have been struggling with acne for a couple years and this product is letting my breakouts clear up and doesnt clog my pores like many other foundations. Acne feels like a never ending cycle sometimes because even though I know my skin needs a makeup break, I cant go out without some sort of coverage. This product is perfect for that and I will be repurchasing.
Des from Utah
Bought this because of a tiktok, it is worth the hype. I have combo skin that gets oily on my forhead & nose but dry everywhere else. It wears beautifully, lasts all day without separating or looking dried/caked. I love it
Nicky from Ar
I personally loved it being a person who doesn't usually find a good shade Match
Sarah from MA
This is a natural but buildable foundation. The lightest shade is just a touch too dark for me but I can lighten it with concealer. I was expecting this to be dewy but it went matte on my skin. I also found it separated on my skin a few hours in to having it on

I used to LOVE this product but after ruining three blouses abs the last one being a favorite I'll never buy this again.
Carly from Colorado
Been looking for a light weight, non greasy foundation and here it is! Stays all day, I don't get shiny as the day goes on. The hydrating properties are perfect for my dry climate.
Cherry from Los angeles
Love.it the finish is flawless and weightless . I fell in love
Shel from Los Angeles
This is really nice for very sheer coverage, the finish is truly your skin, but better. However, I am docking a couple points because 1) It separates and fades within an hour, even if set with powder. 2) The dropper is not very good. If you don't care about longevity, but want a natural-looking glow, this may be for you.

I was in search for something light but obv. to do it's foundation thing & it fit like a glove. Exactly what i needed !
Avv from Shelbyville ky
This product is perfect if you want that glowing look especially in you are on the younger side and you don't need full coverage
For so, so long, I thought I needed a full-coverage foundation to hide my acne and hyperpigmentation. What I've always hated about my makeup, however, was how cakey and texturized my skin always appeared. My pores always seemed emphasized and nothing would sink in, it would simply sit on top of my face, adding to the effect. Despite what I always thought I knew, I want to stress how much my makeup routine and skin have changed since switching to a light-coverage foundation. This foundation is my perfect base and I've recently discovered the magic of working in thin layers to make the perfect, no-makeup, flawless skin look. My pores are no longer emphasized and my skin actually looks HEALTHY. It can breathe and exist without shame. After applying this foundation, I will spot conceal and then magic! If you think you are a full coverage person but want to reduce the look of cakey-ness and heavy foundation look, please try this with a medium coverage concealer. Your life will literally change forever. The only downfall to this product will be the ridiculous packaging. The dropper sucks as mentioned in pretty much every review out there.
