Not good enough

I honestly didn't notice anything that would make this foundation better that any mass market product. It still slides even after applying powder and doesn't last that long as described. But for that cost it's explainable. And yeah, maybe it just doesn't fit my skin very well, everything is very personal

Pretty good

I bought alabaster because I have very pale skin but for the first time ever it was too light. I don't know if this happens with others but I'd recommend getting a shade darker as the pictures aren't very good. It wears well for a few hours but needed touching up after half a day of college which isn't ideal and also wouldn't say it sets matte, rather a light dewy, but not to dewy for my combination skin. I recommend this to anyone on a budget, great for the price and better than anything I've found in a drugstore although will definitely need to be paired with a powder of some sort. Also not incredibly high coverage. I have lots of freckles and they were still pretty clear with the foundation but it did do a good job at reducing my dark circles and and skin discoloration

Works great, but not like the description said

For me, this is a perfect foundation. I found the exact colour that matched my skin tone. It's not full coverage but feels light on the skin. it feels nice and moisturising. It does streak a little when applied with a brush, but I use a blender. But when put it on it did not give a matte finish until I put baking powder on top of it. If you're going for a dewy, glossy look, by all means, use it, because it's perfect for that. But if you're going for matte and light, make sure to use baking powder.

Love it!

I absolutely love the foundation for myself and I don't have many blemishes or breakouts so it covers like a dream, I tend to coat with 2 layers but I tend to do that with all my foundations, perfect for my skin for everyday use! The only thing I'd change is the dewiness of the foundation as it's supposed to be matte but apart from that, I love it! Definitely not heavy on the skin! But also depends on what skin type you are (dry, oily, combo). This will be my 3rd or 4th purchase on this product and will definitely look into trying the foundation drops!

Stay matte? What???

I used it a couple times and I just hated it. I've got combination skin so I was looking for something between moisturising but yet mattifying in t-zone so it seemed perfect. Does none of that. My skin in t-zone was looking so shiny but you could also see the dry patches... Oxidises a bit too. I looooved the HD foundation, but you should expect it comparing the prices. Tbh not even worth 3 stars.

Not great

Oxidised poorly on me and some of my clients and friends, does not dry to a matte finish, if anything its the opposite. Stays quite dewy and sticky and no matter what setting powder I've tried it just soaks it in and ends up looking horrible and patchy. However you get what you pay for, and for £6 it is still an okay foundation. Supposed to be buildable but in my experience the way to avoid patchiness and bad oxidisation is to apply only a very thin layer, so it works just fine as a very sheer coverage foundation when I need one.

It doesn't work as it should

Unlike said in the description the foundation does feel heavy and sticky even though it is oil free. Most shades are orange based and don't match many skintones. They don't look natural once applied.

Nothing like the description

I am very fair and bought this foundation only because the lightest shade is yellow based and it matches me quite well. However, it does oxidise into pink during the day. The finish is extremely dewy and sticky and the foundation doesn't set at all. It feels heavy and greasy on my skin. Because of the wet finish powders don't blend on top of it but just sink in right where you put them and therefore bronzer and blush can be difficult to pull off. I have tried a couple of powders to set it with, but the amount needed is unreal because again this stuff is like clay on your face. Technically this can be built up to high medium coverage, but the finish is thick, clay-like and uneven, at least on me. I do use product because of the colour and I can kind of make it work if I only use a small amount with a flat top brush and want a dewy finish.
