Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shade Changed Cocoa & Deep Cool?? Not sure what happened but the Cocoa use to be red/warm undertones, now it calls out 'Neutral undertones'. It's actual not neutral, its cool/grey/blue. Now Cool Deep is warm undertones. But why call it Cool? It's very misleading and bad descriptor. Confused at the change. Bottom line is Cocoa isn't the same color as it use to be. Soo disappointed, because as we know it's still hard to find 'deep' or 'dark' foundations that work for Black Women. Bummed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Newbie I’m a newbie when it comes to foundations. But I love this one❤️❤️

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Foundation I love how easy the foundation is to apply. It has really good coverage for my skin. However, after a couple of hours my face shows the oil. With a little dabbing the oil is removed. It may be the primer I use not working with the foundation, or the foundation does not go well with really oily skin. I would definitely reccomend this foundation though because it has always covered my flaws and stays on even after a little bit of dabbing and a long day of work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nope. I bought this because reviews seemed to be really favorable. However, my results were awful! When I tried it the first time, the coverage was inconsistent and did not blend well. I cleaned and primed my face and the same results. I even tried with different moisturizers and still awful results. I was hoping it would work. Being pale, I have a hard time finding products to match my skin. Also, better instructions would be beneficial.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Pass. I have combo skin and this foundation made me look greasy even w/ setting powder. It was also disappointing that I was matched in store, only to get home and see the color dried down to 2 shades darker than my skin tone. Waste of money. If you're looking at this foundation try to get a sample before u buy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't beat it for the price! Best foundation. It goes on smoothly, the color is perfect. Even in pictures your face skin looks natural and even. It does not cake up at the lines or wrinkles. I always get good complements about my makeup. This is definitely my favorite. I am so happy I finally found a liquid foundation that's perfect for my skin. It is humid where I live but makeup stays on all day. I had the hardest time finding my color at the stores. I had to buy it on line.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only drug store foundation that matches Okay, I have been a makeup lover for most of my life. But when I was younger I didn’t have money for more expensive make up so drug store is my home. For years I could never find my shade. It was either porcelain which was white or fair which was to dark for me. Holy moly, I’ve been wanting to try this for some time and I just dove in and did it. I just kinda guessed on the color, and it’s my shade. It matches perfectly. I’m so excited about this. While I absolutely love this, I do have some problems when it comes to concealers and powders. My foundation lifts and comes off... luckily it’s my shade other wise it would of been a problem. So I learned not use those with my foundation, but they are my go-tos. Good thing I have a big makeup collection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from BEST! FOUNDATION! EVER! This stuff gives me a flawless porcelain finish, doesn't dry my skin, and let's me build my color to my preferences. I really dig it!
