Most Helpful Positive Review I Just Can't Get Enough
First, let me say that I almost never, ever buy a product more than once. I enjoy the thrill of the chase, the excitement of trying something new, the anticipation of it. But this foundation.....since it came out early this year it's been #HolyGrail status. I've bought it 3 times. I've continued to buy other kinds as well, but I ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS come back to this after one or two uses of the other. Over the summer I tried Too Faced Dew You foundation, Tarte Foundcealer, Becca Skin Love Foundation, Nudestix Tinted Blur, It Cosmetics full-coverage moisturizer and none could come close. The only other one I've found that came close is L'Oreal Infallible 24 hour foundation (I think that's the name, it's the one in the glass bottle w pump). But THIS is still superior. However, the L'Oreal has a water base so if you have an issue w silicones I recommend it as a "dupe" for this. Honestly, my face is oily and I have so many texture issues but I don't like a heavy finish. I like for my freckles to show, so I use a pore balm and then a mattifying primer before foundation to blur out my pores so I don't need a heavy foundation. I use TonyMoly Egg Pore Silky Smooth balm and either Ulta Mattifying primer or Elizabeth Mott Thank Me Later (I prefer Elizabeth Mott but both are great). But let me get back to this foundation lol. Anyway, it makes my skin look so, so, so, flawless and luminous. This would be amazing for bridal makeup. You will need to set it, I use Mattify Cosmetics Ultra powder to sit and Becca Hydra powder as finishing powder. This is so slippery, it glides over the skin. I definitely recommend an oval foundation brush to apply. Seriously, 10/10 recommend it. Please give it a shot! If you hate it Ulta will allow you to return it, you're out nothing.
Most Helpful Critical Review Application issues
I recieved this free with a promotion. When I applied it I did think that it covered my redness decently and I buildable, although it won't build higher than a medium coverage.
With that being said, this foundation was extremely difficult to apply. I tried working it in with both a brush and a sponge. It did better with the sponge, but it just smeared around as I tried to apply it. I love a good water based foundation, but this just would not stay in place. It looked decent when I got it into place and set it with a powder, but it does not stay on long at all before it eventually just slides off. It is also slightly sticky if you touch it with your fingers after it is set. I also got some tiny pimples on my cheeks after I wore it. Getting a free foundation was nice - but I wouldn't pay for this.

It is like watered down, cheap foundation. It took a lot more than expected to do a minimal coverage job

June from Michigan
This product I was assuming was a light coverage and buildable coverage foundation . It turned out to be absolutely oily and felt like I had put coconut oil all over my face. .
Kelly from Bethlehem, PA
I love this. Great, even and lightweight Coverage that my skin seems to love so far. Like my skin but better!
I love this product!
Jennilee23 from Yorkville, IL
I absolutely love this product. I love the coverage it gives. It works amazing. It feels so soft and smooth on your skin. I will definitely buy again. I have already told others about this product and they have bought it! I have even bought some for my daughter!
Mommaface82 from Chesterfield VA
I love this product. It going on the skin so smoothly. My face is soft when I wash it off. The coverage isn't perfect, but definitely a nice base coat.
great for my dry skin!
mads from missouri
this is exactly the foundation i needed! it applies easily and covers blemishes without clinging to any dry patches.
Dakota from WV
I used it for the first time. It is very lightweight and buildable for coverage. It is a little watery, but not horrible!
Not the worst foundation, but you can do better
tayymahon from Dayton, OH
This foundation is quite runny. Perhaps because of the serum, but even when set it's pretty wet and it moves like crazy. It's not the worst foundation I've ever tried but I think you can get a better foundation, save your money.
Not the Best
Allie from North Carolina
Very watery/runny. Extremely messy. Hard to control the amount of foundation that comes out of the dropper. Also, my dropper came apart, making the product even harder to use. Product does not blend into my skin well...cakey. It looks like I'm wearing foundation when I wear this...in a bad way. Do not buy.
For reference, I have dry/normal skin. Light acne.
Packaging terrible. Very oily for combination skin
Cici from Cincinnati, Ohio
I was excited to try this but the dropper made it difficult to use. It went on easily and buildable coverage but very oily for my combination skin and even after using setting powder and spray it became an oil mess after about 3 hours.
Settles into wrinkles and fine lines
JPorter11571 from Arizona
This foundation was not what I hoped for. It is a thin liquid that applies fairly smoothly, but dries to a very powdery matte finish that settles into fine lines and wrinkles. It will not be my go-to.
Already bought it again
Jenny from VA
Covers very well
Couldn't get it to open
Judy from Meridian ID
Very frustrating to open & use
Too runny, hard to use
Mimi from Seattle
I tried twice, not easy to use out of the bottle, very runny and the coverage is poor. Will not buy again.
The only foundation I have ever liked
Meg from Tampa, FL
I hate foundation, but I LOVE this! I'm a redhead with a very pink freckle filled face. I love my freckles, but sometimes I want to knock down the pink just a tad. Other foundation have felt like a mask on my face, and I find that I don't look like myself without my freckles. I love this foundation because it provides just enough coverage to mask the pink areas but doesn't cover my freckles. I'm left with a super healthy looking version of myself and it feels weightless and moisturizing on my skin.
Dragonflygurl from Maryland
This stuff is so watery, but feels very greasy. It doesn't blend with a brush or sponge, and no coverage at all. I had to wash my face three times and use a toner three times to get it off my face.
I buy this foundation every time I run out
Brenda from Florida
I'm giving you my opinion on this make up way too many questions I'd love to make up boom done
This is the Second time I've bought this Product
Sandra from Brainerd, Mn
It's Lighter than other Foundations I've used.
This is the Foundation/Serum you will continue to use!
Resortfashionista from Boise, Idaho
I like to put these foundation drops on in the morning, add Blush. Easy. It lasts all day, my skin looks even, covers up redness, doesn't feel dry, has a nice glow. Doesn't fade. Goes on smooth with a nice feel. The emollients keep my skin looking youthful and bright. The packaging reminds me of a French high end line. Doesn't it?
Em from Greensburg, PA
Love this foundation! It's not heavy on my face and blends well.
skinney78 from Birmingham AL
I have used this same color in other Ulta foundations, mostly the stick. This one was not true to color. And rather than being radiant it was pasty and chalky. Do not recommend.
Would buy again
Mona from Idaho
Liked the product, but the application tool is very messy. The product gets all over the neck of the bottle.
Mamabear76 from Crawfordsville, IN
I have been looking for the one perfect foundation for years, and finally found it. It is an exact color match, makes my aging, dry skin look smoother and feels so soft. It really does what the description says, and then some. I wish I had found this a long time ago!
