stays all day!
I have quite shiney, oily skin and struggled to find a foundation that would last all day but this one does. The coverage is light enough to not feel cakey and gross and always lasts all day for me.

Finally a foundation that I have repurchased
My skin is really oily normally within an hour or 2 of putting a foundation on my skin is so oily & gross but with this I can wear it for hours without it sinking in I do have to powder up abit in that time but I don't have a problem with that... Literally an hour after I put this on I find I look better then when I applied it.., my go to foundation... Looks amazing on the skin...

Love it to Bits!!1
This foundation is the one i swear by!! i can just blend some over my skin before school, and it's perfect when i get home! it doesn't come off with normal wear, unlike Max Factor foundations. i truly love this foundation and the colour range is amazing!

New favourite foundation!
I bought this recently and so far I love it! It gives great coverage, spreads really easily and gives me a more matte finish than any other makeup I've tried before without leaving my skin dry or flaky as some of them can do. I only need to use a little bit and it doesn't look cakey or shiny but still gives me a lovely finish. Lasts all day without wearing too much a freshens up for the night really nicely.
I'm only sad that I couldn't find my exact match in the colours. I had to buy the two shades that a closest to my skin tone and blend them. Worth it though!

Ehh I don't like.
I expected a lot from this foundation, it's been around since the 90's so it must be doing a whole lot right!
The coverage is good, I find it hides all my imperfections quite well, I find the coverage to be medium/full (leaning a little more to the full side) but I don't feel that it's particularly buildable, the product dries very quickly and adding a second layer can so easily look cakey.
The consistency isn't too runny which I like and it smells of sunscreen and baby powderish.
The finish is ok, I would say it's demi matte but the problem I find with this product is that it settles in to fine and deep lines, even if I try to set it with a powder or use a good quality primer I just can't make it say in place, it certainly lasts really well through the day but I find every time I check my face it has made a bee line for my expression lines and the product is trying to have a foundation party where I don't want it to.
Unfortunately this product just isn't for me and I wouldn't consider repurchasing it in the future.

This is my go to autumn and winter foundation! It gives a beautiful coverage especially when the weather is playing a toll on your skin. It is super long lasting and with stands anything I have put it to. I love it! It also covers that sick face look when you've got to go out and about but your sick as a dog and look terrible, this foundation is like a magic wand waves over your sick skin and you look amazing. I have normal skin but have large pores and sweat a great deal so I prefer to grab the oily or combination skin products and this is no exception. Love love love it!

Just not into it.
I tried this with an open mind but found it was just too yellow for my natural pink colour, and it felt too oily on my skin.

Good coverage, nice finish
This is a nice foundation that ticks off most of the boxes. It has a lovely creamy consistency and is easily spread over the face. It has a pleasant light scent. The coverage is great leaving a nice even shine- free finish. I feel that the foundation had considerable staying power. I love the pump action dispenser - allows for minimal wastage and mess. The only thing is - I think it is a bit expensive considering the brand...but that could be just me :)

Where has this product been all my life? It is the first foundation I have ever tried that hasn't made my skin more oily and blotchy after use. By the end of 12 hours wear, my skin wasn't oily at all! It also provided great coverage over my acne, and it was easy to select the correct colour to purchase.

My HG foundation
As a makeup artist, I have tried and tested many foundations. This foundation I have found to work the best on the broadest range of clients. I first used it on myself for a good few weeks and using different application techniques (fingers, brushes, wedge sponge and beauty blender sponge) and it's staying power is great! My longest wear for this foundation was 15 hours before I removed it. I have no issue with its scent, as it just smells like a standard makeup smell, and I almost prefer that it doesn't have any added scent as some people can be quite sensitive to these additives. It's consistency is not runny, nor thick and I think this is why it easily adapts to so many different application techniques. It is the first foundation that hasn't increased the oil in my t-zone or rubbed away from around my nose. Highly recommended for those wanting a fuller coverage as it easily covers redness and acne with only one application, and is easily buildable. On the other hand I have also mixed it with my daily foundation for a more day to day use to help even out my skin tone. I own the entire colour range and have not yet had issues matching skin tones.
