Go ahead and give your skin an immediate and much-needed confidence boost with this fantastic foundation. It’s the ultimate pick-me-up.

What product has done for me: NOTHING!

Would I re-purchase? No. It's so heartbreaking that I couldn't even review this product for more than a day. The minute I got home, I tried it on to test it & it just sucked! Obviously the foundation is a few shades lighter than my skintone but this is the darkest one they had in stock. I did have a darker powder to set it with though. This foundation does not offer coverage at all. I tried applying 2 layers of the foundation & it immediately caked up. I did like the way it felt on my face though. It had a light feeling to it, almost as if it was a moisturizer had been applied to the face. The packaging is a squeeze tube but the product dispenses like crazy if you're not careful. It's very hard to control, IMO. I'm glad that this foundation was on sale for $1.49 because I would hate to pay the full price for something that does absolutely nothing for me. Actually, I hate it so much that I wouldn't pay $1.49 for another bottle.

Have you guys tried this product before? If so, how has it worked out for you? LMK in the comments below :)

I hate when I pick up a product, use it once and it sits in the back of my makeup drawer out of disappointment until I have to chuck it like 2 years later. Good thing you got it for so little, I guess now I know why it was so heavily on sale.


I've been looking for a matte foundation...lols I think I wanna try this out if it's only $1.49! How the heck did you get it only for $1.49...walgreens usually don't have great sales on makeup like that ;[

Kristel - My Sister told me to get it because she wanted to try out a drugstore Matte foundation. The price wasn't displayed so when she scanned it, it was $1.49. I was trippin' out myself.
