Final Thoughts
–I saw this all over TikTok and wanted to try it, but $89 for foundation is a bit out of my price range. I got some sample cards at Sephora and had to test it.
–If I were to buy this, I’d need a lighter shade. I used white mixer to make 0.5 work
–Of freaking course this is a GORG formula and it should be for $89
–I would definitely buy this if it wasn’t so expensive because I love it
–Amazing coverage, flawless finish, and great staying power

  1. Honestly think this foundation is all hype. I thought it sucked. I found it extremely cakey, settled in all my pores and lines I didn’t even know I had and this was when I tried it 8 years ago when I was NINETEEN. I can only imagine now. The coverage is weird and patchy and it melts and breaks apart so fast. There are tons of drugstore foundations that are way better than this yet this costs $90! And honestly, I think you bought into the hype too because no offense but it doesn’t look good. I see the same issues on you as I had with it-cakey cakey cakey, settling into pores and lines and generally being super aging. And in the pm pic you can see it breaking apart a ton, especially around your nose/between your eyebrows (it did the EXACT same thing to me). This foundation was all hyped up years ago when it first came out and I first tried it and so many people were viewing it through rose tinted glasses but even back then I remember quite a few of us who actually tried this and were active on makeup forums and were actually honest with others (and ourselves) had all these same issues and it was super apparent in pics. This foundation sucks. And don’t give me the “it works for me” argument because your own pics are the proof. Don’t waste your money folks!


    1. I definitely tried it because I wanted to see for myself, but I didn’t buy into anything because I didn’t buy the product. I got a sample. You are certainly entitled to your opinion, but I liked how it looked on me. I do agree that there are cheaper options that will perform just as good or better. That’s the fun in trying different products–different formulas work for different people. If someone wants to spend $90 on a foundation, that’s up to them. I can recommend cheaper options, but some people like/want to splurge. I hate that this didn’t work out for you.


  2. This foundation sounds like it’s a great option for someone like me who doesn’t want to reapply or touch up make up throughout the day! It held up so well. As an aside, I love that white eyeliner/highlighter in the corners of your eyes, too! xx


    1. Thank you! I think it looked great and if I felt like splurging, I’d definitely buy it. The formula is 10/10!
