This foundation is a sheer to light coverage. It has a demi -matte,natural finish which is really nice and something that I do like sometimes.This foundation has no shimmer particles, but I feel that my skin looked more radiance and glowy.It is a little but buildable, but not over light-medium coverage.I don’t know why it is called gel, because it doesn’t look like a gel it feels like a normal liquidy foundation .It is definitely great for a no makeup look or just in a day that you just want your skin to look more evened out. It evens out the skin tone and that’s about it. It doesn’t cover any blemished but minimalists a little bit of redness.I feel like this would work for dry and combo skin as it is more liquidy and because of the luminous like finish.I doubt that it will do well for oily skin but if you set it with a heavy powder it might.I’d think sensitive skin may need to stay away because of the strong scent as it does have fragrance in it which does normally irritate sensitive skin.

This serum is a great base product if you don't like the feeling of heavy foundation, It's very lightweight but also has great coverage that is also very buildable. it sets well and doesn't crease, it's suitable for both oily and dry skin types and smells amazing, this is quite possibly my new favourite foundation <3

This foundation is lightweight but gives decent coverage. It's very hydrating which is amazing for my dry skin. And it smells like heaven. Honestly I can't wait to put that foundation on sometimes just because I want to smell it lol

I’ve been using this for over a year now and cannot find another foundation that provides the same outcome. This foundation has a very natural finish and feels extremely lightweight! I have tried alot of foundation. And this stuff here, is the only one that does not feel heavy on skin, it is dewy finish and has to be set with powder. ( If you have dry skin, you can get away without powder during winter season) lasting power is about 7 hours without creasing. Also, it is buildable. And a bottle of this stuff will last you quite a while. The price point also beats most high end foundations. Definitely will keep purchasing!

Has an absolutely gorgeous smell I love that’s its made with natural ingredients. It’s very oily and doesn’t give much coverage but great if you want just a nateral look. The reason I wouldn’t buy again is because I’m a cake face and love full coverage foundation

medium coverage but can be a full cover if applied twice but even with one layer it covers, for a serum foundation i was suprised how natural but fresh looking it looked and covers spots and my tiny bit of redness, its worth every penny, please try this! any skin type should be able to wear this

This foundation settled into all my fine lines and doesn’t cover any blemishes, it definitely doesn’t give flawless coverage as the bottle says, however, it does give the skin a nice glow so I find its nice to mix in a little bit with a matte foundation to make it look more natural.

I love this foundation i always find it reliable regardless of what my skin is doing at the time. Its not too heavy nor too runny it sits nicely on my combination skin and works well with other products on top such as blusher/highlighter and so on. 5*

Now don’t get me wrong. This foundation is not for those who like full coverage. But for those of us who want to wear makeup everyday to give our skins a little perk up but not too much in case we break out, this foundation is perfect. It gives a beautiful ‘lit from within’ glow. ⭐️
The consistency is perfect allowing it to sink into the skin and feel weightless.
I highly recommended this foundation paired with the bourjois powder.

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

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!
