Great for Oily skin!
If you want a matte finish with minimal touch ups needed this is the foundation for you! It's a pretty good price, and the colour range is good however you need to make sure you get the right one for your skin tone (pink or yellow) because it can look a bit deceiving. I love the coverage and it has a very matte finish so it's great for people with oily skin, however not so good if you have dry skin because it can look a bit patchy. This is my go to foundation!
Make sure you apply with a brush for an even application
Oily skin or someone wanting a matte finish

Something different for a foundation
I am normally a fan of liquid foundations but thought I would give this a go. I was a little disappointed when
I opened the jar (I bought it in medium 3 shade) only because it does not look as 'whipped' and soft as in the picture! Mine looked a bit dry, but maybe mine was on the shelf a while? Anyway, I took a dab of it and smoothed it in with my fingers and was pleasantly surprised with the flawless look and blend with my skin tone. It's good because there is no need to use a brush so
I like it for travel.

good foundation for dry skin but highlight open pores
I bought this foundation in Creamy natural. The foundation has bulky packing and comes with a sponge. But this kind of jar packing can cause contamination of the product. The shade creamy natural was a little bit lighter but natural beige was to dark for me.
The foundation has thick mouse texture and almost fragrance free. A pea size amount is enough for entire face. I applied it with sponge and found that it is really very easy to apply. It did not dries quickly on my face, so I can blend it easily. This foundation is not enough hydrating and did high light dry patches on my face. Although I used it on my regular moisturiser. It conceal all the imperfections of my skin (I do not have too many blemishes but it can cover pimples and spots). This foundation will give you medium to full coverage. The only problem with this foundation is that it did highlight pores. After its application, I saw that my pores looked bigger. It did not have perfecting ability, I used face powder on it to settles the foundation then it looks fine. This is non transferrable foundation, you will not find it staining your cloths or scarf. It has decent staying power and can be lasted for 6-8 hours. I felt that this foundation did not give me make natural look(I like natural look) .This foundation looked good in photos, but in real life it looked heavy and make upy. Anyone can tell you that you are wearing foundation, especially in sun light, it looked like I used tons of make up. I think its also depend on your skin type and life style. I have reactive dry skin, and whatever make up I applied on my face, it looks quite obvious. I do not use too much make up normally, but those who wear make up daily, may be they will look naturally beautiful by using this foundation. I used it few times then I just threw it in my drawer.

Great product, good coverage
I really love this foundation! I already bought it twice and I am sure that when I finish I will buy it again. I find it really easy to apply using brush. It covers my large pores and redness really well and stays all day.

This foundation has an amazing consistency. I love the feel of it on my face. It's super easy to blend only using your fingers.

I found that this foundation was really disappointing, it spreads on terribly when using a sponge, but with fingers it's OK.I found that it wears off very quickly and reapplying it during the day makes the foundation very noticeable.

Smooth and decent
It goes on really smoothly and feels great!
It is ideal for heavy coverage.

I wanted to like it...
I saw this girl on the train once with an amazingly flawless glow and asked her what foundation she wore...She said it was this Dream Smooth Mousse..so I went out straight away that day and bought it.
I am very fair so the colour did not match at all even though I bought the lightest shade. But not only was it too dark, which I could have dealt with, it was really really orange!!
It went patchy within a few hours and after that it completely disappeared. Usually I'll try a foundation more than once just to give it a fair go but I didn't even bother with trying this one again.
I really don't know who this would work for as I don't have oily skin and hardly any blemishes...It just disappeared...Maybe if you have perfect, normal skin and no blemishes and also skin which isn't too fair then maybe it would suit you.

Lovely foundation, wears off quickly
I love this foundation, only it does not last on me at all :( I really wish that it did. You do not have to set this with a powder to get a matte finish.
