THINGS TO RAVE ABOUT
  • Weightless: "It is so light. I mean honest I could plaster on multiple coats of this stuff, and it would probably still feel just absolutely weightless." by sarahhope
  • Easy to Apply: "This blends so easily and is workable with a brush, sponge, or even just your fingertips. My favorite method is with a beauty blender as the finish is very natural. This doesn't dry immediately, so you do have a bit of time to work with it." by princess101
  •  Great Pump: "Packaging is nice, comes with a pump, and it dispenses just the right amount of product without being wasteful." by Aishteru85
  • Natural Looking: "I spread it on with my fingers and it perfectly evens out my skin tone and leaves my skin appearing dewy and moist. It lets some of my natural freckles I get from the sun come through slightly, so my face looks natural; not like I pancaked on a ton of foundation which just always looks awful in my opinion." by cp326
  • Blurs Imperfections: "I have blackheads on my nose which rise a bit higher then the rest of my skin (so annoying and embarrassing) But this foundation literally BLURS them from focus. I was driving in my car on a sunny day, and looked at myself in my car mirror, and WOW, I glowed, and my skin really did look blurred, in an airbrushed form." by Beautlfy
  • Improves Skin: "Oddly, my skin has looked ten times better WITHOUT MAKEUP now then it ever has, even though this isn't geared towards helping acne. I had little acne marks and this seemingly took them away, I'm not sure why, but it's my miracle product. Go for it :)." by pinkgirl17
  • Photographs Beautifully: "This foundation does photograph really well and makes my complexion look fabulous."  by lygophilia

THINGS TO RANT ABOUT
  • Oxidizes: "This is all around a great foundation, but the wear-time sucks, at least on my oily skin. By 3pm (applying it around 7 am), this would have started to disintegrate-meaning by the 8th hour all my acne scars are showing through like i didn't wear any foundation at all. In short, this probably would work so much better for someone with normal/dry skin. Oily skin, not so much, as it doesn't control oil that well, as I had to blot on the 2nd third hour of wearing." by cupcakes 

    IS IT FOR YOU?

    YES: "If you desire a flawless complexion that remains natural with no visible hints of makeup." by charcole12
    NO: "If your skin needs heavy concealing, a dry, matte finish, and powerful oil control." by alexall

    9. Howdy! I realize this is somewhat off-topic however I had to ask.
      Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a lot of work?

      daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and thoughts online. Please let me know if you have any kind of recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!
