    For awhile it worked really well, the colour was good blended well, light coverage. It was good. One day I put some on my hand in the morning and it was orange. Like a really ugly bronzer orange. It took forever to take off. I've used better from the drugstore

    Not a fan. I don't feel I had any positive effects that the product advertises. Wouldn't recommended. Blotchy, drying, overall disappointing. I personally feel the overall experience just wasn't for me.

    I was so disappointed with this foundation! I have very pale skin so I was afraid other foundations would be too dark for me so I though this "skin matching" in the lightest shade would be my best option. First it doesn't match my skin and made me look even more pale and it doesn't blend in the skin nicely either. It leaves my skin all patching and weird looking. I would not recommend this product at all.

    First, I really don't see the Skintone matching foundation crap, which absolutely does nothing. It's not a moisturizer, not a foundation. It's just a translucent lotion kind of thing, you put on your face without for it having a purpose. Second, I think it clogged my pores. It's not heavy feeling, but I did get some breakouts.

    I like light coverage formulas, and this definitley was, but I don''t feel like the "smart shade" was true to it's name, i have very fair skin, and it was too yellow for my complexion. I like the texture, but the colour will not work for everyone.

    If I feel like having a light makeup day- I will use this for running errands or going to the beach. I never experienced a break-out or irritation. I just personally prefer a full coverage makeup routine to cover my acne scars. I do like the sun protecting benefit. My next plan is to give this to my mom because she uses no make up at all and I feel like this is dipping your toe in the water. It will give you a radiant look. If you're skeptical, buy it when it goes on sale. But definitely think about giving it your mom or older sister- because it's close enough to feeling like a moisturizer that they won't be overwhelmed with a texture or thickness they might not like.

    I was not a fan of this product. I tried it because of the concept.
    I thought it was near that the product was white until it was blended into your skin.
    But the issue with this is that it is difficult to "match" with your actual skin tone.
    I found I couldn't get the right color. Also, there was not enough coverage.
    If you think of this product as more of a tinted moisturizer then it's ok.
    It's quite a watery product with light coverage.
    Not for me.

    I came across this item when it was on sale and decided to give it a try since my foundation was running out. It is not an oily product which is a plus but the coverage is not so good. It reduces the appearance of my redness but still see a small amount. I put this on pretty often just for an everyday but would not try this for special occasions. If you have acne or a lot of redness/imperfections I wouldn't recommend purchasing it.
