Ehhh, not my thing.
Coverage isn't the best and I didn't see any improvements after months of use. It goes on smooth and it's good if you want quick coverage, but I wouldn't use this all the time. There's better stuff out there.

What do you consider to be *better stuff* ???? Currently on the hunt for liquid foundation.

good brand but not the greatest product
The coverage is good but can get a bit cakey. Idk why but almost any foundation/concealer/pressed powder formulated to clear acne always has very yellowy/orange undertones?? This foundation runs a bit dark for anyone who's pretty pale. Actually, I recommend Almay's TLC liquid foundation instead of this stuff. The clear complexion foundation made me breakout occasionally and it didn't stay matte for long. Not great for naturally oily skin. On the other hand, the TLC foundation kept my skin matte for most of the day , had great coverage, didn't look very cakey, came in lighter shades, but is just a little tough to remove.

i thought this was my holy grail but unfortunately it clogged my pores. When i first started wearing it i was inlove because it looked amazing, controlled oil, and i even got a few compliments on my skin. I was using the matching concealer too. After a few weeks of wear, i was getting into my car during a sunny day and caught a glimpse of my reflection in the window and saw MANY clogged pores on my cheeks :( i stopped using it and they went away. After some time I decided to try another almay foundation because the brand seems so promising with the oil free, noncomedogenic claims, but the same thing happened with the clogged pores. Sigh.

doesn't cause breakouts
cheaper then department store brands


turns orange looking on my fair skin
starts to look odd after a while on the face
rubs off VERY easily

My dermatologist suggested that i try this and i loved it at first. But, now that its gotten hotter outside and iv'e realized it doesn't give much coverage i am trying to find a new makeup with better coverage, that also lasts, and that doesn't turn orange-ish on my face. I might work better for you if you have less oily skin and have a darker skin-tone.

goes on smooth and fresh like. not oily or shiney.


drys flaky and not that good at covering pimples. very see through like.

i bought this product to make my acne clean up while covering it didnt make my acne worse but it didnt improve anything either, also it was like not even wearing make up. you could see my zits and acne scars as if i just washed my face.
