    This got really oily on me and looked cakey at the end of the day. I even set it with powder and it still got cakey. I also found that it was good up to a point and then it went down hill super quickly.

    Did you also get the serum foundation to try? I’ve been using that for awhile and it’s very matte, almost too matte which can be a problem if you’re combination/dry.

    • Makeup Your Mind says:

      They had like… zero of the serums. That was the one I wanted to try but they had no stock anywhere close to my shade. Bah.

    For some reason I love hearing about the products you dislike lol. I didn’t like it either. For me, it made my skin look dry and textured yet was shiny at the same time. Totally transferred off my nose as well in no time.

    • Makeup Your Mind says:

      I saw your review today as well! How come we’re all coming out of the woodwork now? People lovvvved this stuff before!!

  4. Brenda Penton says:

    I have been so on the fence about the two foundations. I’ve heard they have coconut oil derivatives in them and my skin and coconut oil do not get along.

    • Makeup Your Mind says:

      You’re right – someone mentioned to me that the coconut oil is what’s causing the issue. I’ve never tried plain coconut oil on my face before so I have no idea how I’d react to that, but it does not sound appealing by what you said of it!

    • Brenda Penton says:

      Ohh and I should add that coconut oil does similar on my skin like the foundation did to you…it looks shiny/oily but dries me out.

    This foundation broke me out and the skin care ☹ I wanted to love their products.

    • Makeup Your Mind says:

      I wanted to love it. 🙁 So many people love their products and I’m just here like “but why though?”. Sad face.
