With this foundation, I know many don't like splashing out on brushes (me included as I'm broke), but the right application is essential or it just will not have any staying power at all! I have heard primark do good brushes and sponges for cheap so maybe when you go to buy this go and buy one of them with it, just to ensure it stays. However the gel-like formula is perfect for summer, as I know I absolutely hate matte in heat because it melts off in clumps. But overall it doesn't cause breakouts (sometimes rare on foundation for dry skin), and has a very good smell

I am in my late teens with combination, fair tone skin and hazel eyes. My hair is medium brown, dry with coarse texture.
for a highstreet foundation this is amazing. I would go back to this every time. It not only gives good covrage but smells great and gives a really dewy look. Because of the fact its a gel i find it doesnt go patchy and dry and my skin feels constantly moisturised. I absolutely love this and would buy again and again

I have been using Bare Minerals for a while. My skin is dehydrated so within an hour of putting make up on my skin was sucking the life out of it and leaving oily, cakes foundation. Have been using this for a few days now along with hyaluronic acid and it's fabulous! Goes on lovely, buildable coverage but still looks natural. Use a beauty blender and it's seamless

I heard so many good things about this foundation which is why I bought it in the first place. When I first tried it, I noticed that compared to my matte foundations, it had more of a shine to it. It also doesn't have as a good a coverage as some of the L'oreal infallible matte foundations I have, so I tend to mix them together. Overall it's not a bad foundation, and I would definitely recommend to someone with drier skin as it has a nice shine to it.

This foundation gives a natural flawless coverage. Leaves your skin feeling smooth and smelling delicious! I have not tried wearing this for 16 hours and I don't intend to. I do believe that this foundation contains vitamin rich fruits (lychee, goji berries and pomegranate). I have mine in the shade 51 light vanilla and it suits my skin colour perfectly. Would buy this again.

I have severe redness in my face and also suffer from acne. This foundation has a very good coverage of all of my problems but also breaks out my skin a bit. Would recommend to anyone with combination skin for long lasting medium to high coverage

This is a really great foundation for a medium to almost full coverage look but it still feels comfortable and looks natural. The finish is quite dewy but you wouldn't need to powder if you didn't want to as it's not shiny. I've not tested the 16hour part!
