I was given a sample of this at the weekend as I have always wanted to try it after reading so many good reviews.
Let me as always say I have oily skin and its no brands fault if the product cant handle it.
But even after I prepped my face and started to apply it was obvious this wasnt going to cut it.
It was watery and soooooo hard to blend.
Instantly caused my concealer to separate and left the area round my nose patchy and cakey.
The only positive I can bring is the shade match was excellent!
I just dont think it coped with my skin type and was too watery for my taste.
I hate to waste make up so I may mix it with a fuller coverage foundation to thin it out a bit for days I want lighter coverage.
But defo not for me

This foundation has beautiful coverage that isn't too thick and doesn't make me look cakey, but it had enough to make my skin look flawless, even with red spots and pimples. It also felt like nothing on my face and was very lightweight.

This is the first foundation I've found that properly blends in, and doesn't make me look cheap and cakey. It gives a medium coverage, and looks really natural. The shade range is average, it doesn't look like they cater very well to dark and very light skin tones which is a shame. As with all bourjois products, it smells really good.

I'll always turn to this foundation if I need a safe go to! No fuss just an easy soft and creamy formula that only needs one coverage to cover my impurities, it works great with blushers and other products with no cakiness, very breathable foundation and sure winner in my collection.

This foundation is my ride or die. I love the consistency and formula. It makes my skin glow and look so healthy. Healthy is in the name I guess. It is medium coverage but the perfect coverage. It doesn’t look cakey, it looks completely natural as if I have perfect, flawless skin. I would definitely recommend this for any skin type.😚

I wasn’t sure about this foundation at first as I had moved from EL double wear to this as I wanted something a little less heavy and more dewy. On the first day wearing this I got two compliments on my skin and asking what foundation I use. I would say it is medium coverage but can be easily buildable to full, it blends so well and stays put all day. I have the shade light beige which is perfect for a yellow undertone. I have combination skin with dry patches and this doesn’t excentuate my dryness at all, feels so moisturising. Not sure if this would stay on an oily skin...
On my second bottle of this now!

My absolute favourite. I've tried lots of foundations over the years but this has been my only one now for about 3/4 years. I don't like heavy or thick, matte foundations but I still want an even coverage that gives me a nice glow. Each bottle last me about 3 months and I apply with a beauty blender. It is long lasting but when it's hot outside ( my forehead gets shiny) I have to put abit of loose power over the top ( which I don't normally wear) to stop my face from looking like a spoon.

I got this foundation in the shade 52 Vanilla as it was supposed to be a good shade match for the Estee Lauder Desert Beige I had been matched with. Due to having really dry skin, I wanted to be careful in choosing a foundation that wouldn't dry my skin out even more. This product applied nicely, it gave a decent amount of coverage which is fine for what I wanted from the foundation and I had no problems with how it lasted on my skin.

Bought this as I'd seen good reviews of it. I was pretty disappointed. It doesn't last 16 hours probably lucky if it lasted 6 hours. It's light coverage I'd say so it's probably good for those with perfect skin. I wouldn't repurchase.

I got this after a lot of YouTubers raving about it. For oily skin it is so bad, I would say it is light to medium coverage and goes patchy throughout the day. With me having oily skin I'm super shiny at the end of the day

I was pleasantly surprised by the coverage and longevity of this foundation and how easy it is to blend. I've tried 20+ foundations and none sit right on me skin no matter what primer/moisturiser or setting products I use but this stayed on pretty well through an 11 hour shift in a busy restaurant. My only downside would be that it goes a little shiny after a few hours so maybe not the best for oily skin. Would definitely buy again as it's great value for money.

This is a staple in my beauty regime as it has a lovely scent and a semi matte but a dewy finish. It doesn't last all day, but I usually set it with a translucent powder so that doesn't affect me. However, if you were looking for a high coverage foundation, then this wouldn't be for you as I find that it is medium coverage but it's doesn't really hide any blemishes, freckles or imperfections in my skin. I am into my third bottle so I obviously enjoy using it and would 10 out of 10 recommended it. Also it didn't affect my skin, and I had no problems with blemishes or blocking of the pores. xox

Very yellow undertoned. This is meant to be for dry skin but as I'm on holiday I have found it literally isn't sinking into my skin it's just sitting on top and moving and making my skin look more dry. Other than that I do love this foundation and it's very buildable but a light to medium coverage.

Lately I've been into foundations and BB creams that habe a lot lighter coverage due to it being summer and this one works perfectly. The only problem is the shade range the lightest shade is too light and the next shade is too dark so I use foundation mixing drops and that works well for me. Overall this is a great summer time foundation.

I bought the lightest shade Boots had (and double-checked it in another store) and it is still a little too dark for me, and I do not consider myself pale. It's also a bit yellow!. Hoping it'll work as a summer item, as I like the sheer coverage and the dewy aspect is spot on.
