Started using this after Bourjois discontinued my favourite “10 Hour Sleep Effect” Foundation. I purchased Shade 51 - Light Vanilla - obviously too light for my skin but I will definitely be buying another soon in a couple of shades darker - love how it has 3 colour correctors included in the formula too!

I have two things to say about this foundation. I do think it gives a lovely colour and has not sunken in to my smile lines but it has gone a bit patchy it’s been on for about 6 hours but it says it hasn’t up to 16 hours it still looks very nice on I only can tell because I am a perfectionist 🤣

coverage is average, though I have oily skin so not sure if that's why (though I use primer, powder and setting spray). The shade I chose wasn't quite right, but that isn't the products fault (oops). I found if you don't use any powder on top it is quite shiny, and don't cover acne, blemishes or dark circles as it claims to do, but it definitely does spread well.

I love testing out new products until i find something i am committed to using. I just came across this in Sainsbury's and i needed a new foundation and it seemed good. I has an alright coverage. Unfortunately, during the end of the day it tends to become patchy.

This isn't great on oily skin and it tends to get all sticky and patchy very soon (maybe a couple of hours) and the lightest colour is quite dark and orange/yellow toned which becomes more noticeable as its on longer. It isn't great at covering acne either.However, it does go one easily, is a nice texture and good to get if your short of cash.

This foundation applies well and evenly and has a nice glowy finish. However, I would not reccomend for those with oily skin as those areas soon become patchy and flakey. I also notice no difference to my face when using this foundation even though it claims to have 3 correcting pigments. Despite this, I would recommend this to people looking for everyday afordable makeup as this does the job.

I bought this foundation when I was unable to buy my favourite bourjois healthy mix serum in the shade I wanted. The colour range of this foundation is not very good and i wasn't very keen on the overall finish.

I found it gives brilliant coverage for my skin and gives a natural look. I use this everyday and so far I love it! I would highly recommend this product and with it’s affordable price of just £10.99! which I purchased from my local boots store.The foundation has 3 correcting pigments which helps to give you a healthy looking glow and correcting any blemishes you may have.

I find this foundation applies nicely and feels nice on my skin. It also gives a good coverage. It comes out a little dark when first applied but after a while with a little extra buffing with the foundation brush it leaves a lovely finish. Now my go to foundation.

I tried this foundation after watching Pixiwoo in YouTube. I can safely say this is now my go to! I always used Double wear but found it slightly too heavy for everyday. This is a lovely foundation, not too heavy depending on coverage you want, lives up to its 3 factors stated. Evens out skin tone, brightens, and definitely stays for the majority of the day depending on your skin type. Great buy

I do like this foundation, it has a good coverage on my skin and feels lightweight throughout the day. My only issue is that it is a very yellow undertoned foundation which seems to oxidise rather a lot, so I usually balance this out by mixing a little pink toned foundation to balance it out.

My opinion varies on this depending on how my skin is on a day to day basis, if my skin is having a dry day the coverage isnt great feels and looks more like a CC Cream, however if my skin is oily (where i use a primer) or normal its great, feels full coverage and is not tacky, however its not long wearing.

Perfect coverage with many shades to chose from! Paid about £10 for this product and it was the best £10 i have spent. I continually buy this, so natural looking and brilliant to blend, especially when contouring! Tried many foundations and this way by far the best for my skin- I have oily skin and struggle to find a foundation which stays on all day, this is definitely the one to use!

My skin is very fair, and this foundation had the lightest shade I could find. It has great coverage; not necessarily '16 hours' though. It also has a bit of a yellow undertone, but with some other products I can make it less noticeable.

This foundation is ideal for people with combination skin with yellow undertones. It completely cancels out any red pigments, dullness to the skin, and dark pigmentation marks. This foundation lasts for hours, especially when set with a powder, however if too much has been used then it could look slightly cakey. Apart from that, great foundation.
