Piper_KS Pretty thick going on - didn't blend very well without a lot of work. I have combination skin and after a few minutes of wear this made my whole face look like an oil slick. Not at all what I was looking for a light foundation. Returned it after trying it for several days.

MD Being a plastic surgeon I experiment a lot to see what is out there to recommend to my patients. This product is a nightmare. The smell is atrocious, applied, your face shines as if polished with a chunk of lard, the consistency is so thick that after using about one third of the product an air bubble is created at the bottom and the pump only sucks air and you have to scrape the product out with the pump pipe and the little bit of coverage is absorbed into the skin within half an hour. Try it: apply to only half the face and wait 30 min. Check the mirror: voilà - no difference whatsover between left and right (BTW - this is a great way to test almost ANY product - most will do the same disappearing act - be it foundation, any type of instant wrinkle treatment, oil absorbing product, base for eye shadow etc. All these products are made to sell by being nicely packaged, having a pleasant consistency upon application and looking pretty for a couple of minutes....). And to boot - [$] for 1oz? Give me a break!!!

twins2005 I received this as a deluxe sample and of course before it even came close to running out purchased a full bottle. It is very costly and I never before this product spent this much on a foundation. Trust me when I tell you this, it is worth every penny. If you are looking for something that looks 100% natural while giving you the benefits of cover-up, you have found the product.

If you are looking for full coverage, this might not be the best thing because it is light but believe me although lite, it does a great job.



I use this on my light days, the days my skin already looks good (some days your skin looks better then others) and I use a heavy foundation on my not such good days.



It seemed to dark at first and I was sure it would look off, but it is incredible how this product blends with your skin (I have very pale/white skin) and no one would ever know you are wearing anything on your skin, it looks that natural.

jen25 Pros: This product really made my skin look lovely at the end of the day after I washed it off. My pores seemed diminished and my skin was smooth. It was like I had worn a facial mask all day.



Cons: Unfortunately, it didn't seem to look that great when I was wearing it. First of all, I am fair-skinned. I usually buy "ivory" in most foundations. The salesperson told me it was neutral and would fit everyone once you rubbed it in. Well, even when I use the smallest amount, it is about 4 shades too dark. Second, it left my combination skin looking greasy. At first, it felt okay, but not an hour later, I had to blot, but it still looked greasy. By the end of the day my skin felt tight. It wasn't until I washed it off that my skin felt smooth and good, like I'd just had a facial.

So, now, that's how I use it--as a facial mask. Perhaps that's how it should be marketed.

DillyGurl Perricone MD rep suggested this product for my oily acne prone skin. I have not had luck at all in the past with tinted moisturizers, beauty balms, and cc creams. I was skeptical of this product because of these past experiences. However, I was very pleasantly surprised with this product! I have fair skin (NC20 from MAC) and this matched my skin perfectly. It definetly is NOT a medium coverage foundation. I don't recommend it for anyone who wants a medium to full coverage. However, as I approach 40, I feel like typical foundations make me appear older as it settles in my fine lines and pores so I was looking for something lighter in texture. This product applied over a moisturizer and primer fit the bill perfectly. I don't look "made up" at all. It's very natural looking. After application I dust with a light layer of setting powder by IT cosmetics. It looks perfect! Very very natural. One of the best aspects is that I am oil free for most of the day. Typically I would be oily and need to blot within about 3 hours after application. With this product I am oil and shine free for a good 6-7 hours.

CroatianDoc Although this is quite an expensive product, I am glad I have bought it. I have very very oily skin with imperfections and it is hard to find a tinted moisturizer or a foundation that doesn't make my face oily in 10 minutes. This product stays in place, gives a nice glow and doesn't change its texture over time. I put a translucent powder over it and my face stays matte for several hours, not minutes! It is also great for around the eye area since it covers dark circles and fills fine lines. The tint is gentle so if one desires can easily put foundation over it. I will definitely buy it again.

ohmeohmy I bought as a birthday present to myself with a coupon that Ulta gave me. Normally, I wouldn't be willing to spend so much for just 1 oz. of product but I had read so many good things about it and was very intrigued, so I bit the bullet and splurged on it. I actually wasn't going to get it because, when I tried it on in the store on my hand, it didn't feel like it was absorbing very well. As I perused a little more, I touched that part of my hand again and was wowed. It felt so smooth, soft, and moisturized, very unlike what most of my products had ever made my skin feel before. I didn't notice very much coverage (I typically go for at least medium coverage) but I was sold just by how it made my skin feel.



I took it home and experimented with it a little. While I would normally use a concealer and powder in my routine for my acne scars and dark circles, I did not think that the serum consistency of this product would layer well with other products so I actually never layered it with anything else other than moisturizer and primer. I tried it out for a few days but just wasn't satisfied with the extremely light coverage; I felt it was lighter than BB cream. Now, I had expected little tint and little coverage though. So, my skin wasn't ready for lighter coverage at that point in time.



Because it was so expensive, I didn't want to return it. First, I asked my sister to try it to see if the product was just not-all-that for me or if it was possible that it was not-all-that in general. She tried it and absolutely LOVED it. Her main skin concerns are dry combination with redness on the cheeks and nose. This covered the redness and helped soothe her dry patches. Since she loved it so much, I gave it to her, happy that at least someone could enjoy this amazing product.



Overall, this is a great product for those looking for a light, natural coverage or who have dry, normal, or combination skin. Neither my sister nor I have sensitive skin, so I cannot speak for that area with full confidence.

LL I was excited to try the product because as we age, most women want as little, but effective make-up as possible. I was put off at first by the exorbitant price for a foundation, but figured I'd give one go. This "No Foundation Foundation" turned brown on my skin and didn't cover a thing. It also stays greasy. I can't imagine that it works on anyone with even slight sun damage as I have in a couple of places. I am fair and in winter I also experience reddening from the elements and hoped it would help with that. No luck. I wonder what kinds of skin Dr. Perricone used for his testing? Certainly not older women.

Sexy Sixty This product will amaze you..it's dark in color , and I am light skinned, so I thought it would look like a mask. I couldn't have been more wrong. It blends your skin into one nice tone. (you're own type) and you don't even look like you have foundation on. It also has sunscreen included. About the size of a pearl covers my whole face nicely, so it will last a long time. That makes it really worth the price! You're gonna love it!! I do.
