foundation for neutral undertones
“But when I put it on it looks alittle more yellowy for some reason.(this shade is for neutral undertones) so I blend it in, looks ok. Just a tiny bit patchy looking to me AT FIRST in my honest opinion but I added more foundation & it seemed to help. looks ok”
powder foundations
“This matte powder foundation is amazing! I don’t usually use powder formulas for my foundations, but I decided to give this one a go”
dark foundation
“It’s not overly golden which as a freelance makeup artist, this powder will work amazingly on my dark tan to deep clients as a highlight. I recommend this powder”
buff foundation
“One of my favorite go-to powder foundations. I have extremely oily slick skin and cannot wear liquid foundations because they all seem to clog my pores”
dewy foundations
“This product leaves your skin actually feeling very dewy and sheer looking and I would totally recommend if your just looking for a skin tone neutralizer type of deal”
beige foundation
“This is the best talc-free option for pressed powder foundations offered at Sephora right now. It has awesome coverage, is long-lasting, doesn’t crease or look cakey, and the shade match is perfect”
blur foundation
“Love love! Very nice powder foundation. If you want more cover, use a sponge. Blurs face and does not feel all that heavy”
sheer foundation
“However, I am so sad that I have to return this because the coverage is just not enough for me (esp as I have acne). I don’t mind sheer foundations (like Reboot), but this one is even so much more sheer than that, I can’t see it on my skin at all”
body foundation
“Good coverage though! I like Mac face and body better for an actual tinted moisturizer. Good for the combo folks and maybe good enough for oily people if you have a good primer”
non cakey foundation
“Love that it’s doesn’t cake up with my oily skin but as with most foundations I have to mix two shades to get a good match”
