It really does live up to its name

I’ve been using Revlon One Step foundation, which I LOVE, but found it to be way too heavy for the summer so I was looking for something lighter and with more oil control for the summer so I grabbed this and the matching powder on a whim at Wal Mart one day, I used both for the first time last week and I must say I’m very impressed. This foundation really does adjust to your skin tone, which is great for me since I have very fair skin and have a hard time matching foundations to my skin tone. Is has very nice coverage, but it doesn’t feel heavy, in fact it feels like nothing is even there. It also has great staying power for a drug store foundation. The matching powder on top of this foundation looks beautiful and keeps my skin nice and matte most of the day AND it’s not cakey like most powders tend to be.Both of these are now my two new go-to foundation/powders in my make up routine.

woa

I really did not have high expectations for this but i needed something to get me to my free shipping rate and I also needed a concealer. This was great. I try new foundations all the time( the last was the foam which was bizarre) this is a perfect match!

Better than covergirl

This works better than the covergirl simply ageless. It moisturizes and actually make my skin look younger, the light has a subtle color that is nice. It doesn’t cover imperfections very well so I do have to use the covergirl with a small brush to cover some blemishes. This gives a nice even coverage and doesn’t make your skin look old. I don’t know how well this will work in the summer because stuff just melts or sweats off me in the summer but for the winter this is great.

Not So Much

It’s a no go for me….no matter how I tried it~wet or dry. The shade was to light with no undertone….just kind of flat. Would not buy again.

Fantastic and wonderful!

My favorite foundation ever. I break out easily and this has not caused a problem in the least. Been using it for almost a year, every day. I use a brush rather than the sponge just because I prefer it.

Liquid not the same color as pressed powder

The low rating is for the fact that the color of the liquid "golden dark" is NOWHERE NEAR the same color as the pressed powder. Not even close. It’s more orange-y and much darker. Yet they’re called the same color. I was wanting to get a liquid version of the pressed powder in the same color, but no such luck.

WOW

I LOVE this foundation! A little goes a long way, covers great, feels light and lasts a long time. Plus this foundation doesn’t break me out (i’m 50 and struggle with adult acne – plus need a foundation that doesn’t gather in my smile lines.) I went with dark golden and it gives a nice summer healthy glow too.

Great foundation!

I love gloMinerals foundation because it covers the skin very well. It is especially good for covering imperfections. It also gives a great colour. Great for acne and oily skin, but also good for normal and even dry skin. Great foundation for everyday use. I recommend it!

Shiny

I meant to order the standard mineral veil and accidentally bought this "illuminating" version. Careful- its quite shiny. In the right light, I look like I’m glowing…so on second thought, it may be just the thing for kids in love with the Twilight vampires…or "exotic" dancers…

Leaves your skin looking flawless!

I just started using Laura Mercier products and in my transition I was looking for makeup that resembled my old makeup, but was better quality. I used to use Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse and I traded it in for this product. This product is a little creamier than the mousse, but it spread much easier too. If you use a foundation brush to blend it into your skin (after using a primer) it makes your skin look flawless. I have old acne scars that I used to pile makeup on to cover up, but you don’t have to do that with this makeup. I recommend following up with LM powder and blush.

You only need a tiny dab of it.

I looked around a lot before I finally decided to buy this foundation. I had Revlon Colorstay before this one and it was just horrible for my severely dry skin. I love the texture of this foundation-I’ve never really been a fan of liquid foundations. The mousse-y feeling is nice. I just apply it with my fingers and it feels nice on my skin all day. The coverage is pretty good and it doesn’t make my dry skin worse although the driest part of my face (between and a little above my eyebrows) will still show a couple flakes this time. Yes it’s super expensive but you only need the tiniest dot of it to cover your entire face. If this ever runs out I’ll probably repurchase it unless I can find something similar but cruelty free.

Not for my dry skin

I bought this based on reviews that it was for dry skin, so why should it cling to dry patches? Well, it certainly did mine. I have found a way to mix this with some of my other foundations to actually use it and I make sure it doesn’t go on those dry areas but am certainly disappointed. My advice is to get a sample before purchasing.

Impressed by this foundation

I’m in my late 20’s and was raised with the belief that, when it comes to make-up, more expensive is better. I was reading a book on sking care, “The Skin Type Solution” by Leslie Baumann, MD and she actually recommended this type make up for a similar skin type to my own. Given the price, I thought I’d give it a shot and if it didn’t work, then no big deal. I have gotta say, I’ve been pleasantly surprised by this foundation. It’s light enough that I don’t feel like I’m wearing a mask, but covers enough that it really down plays my blemishs so they’re hardly noticeable. It has more of a satin finish and by mid-afternoon, I don’t have a greasy look to my face. I have dry, sensititve skin and this is moisturizing enough to keep my skin hydrated and not break out. I’ll buy this again.

Long-lasting and good coverage

I like this foundation a lot. I usually use NARS, but decided to give this one a try. The Beige 5 tone is a medium-dark yellow-toned (warm toned) foundation. If you are pink or blue toned, then this one is not for you. I would recommend this product for someone with medium, warm-toned skin and dry or combination skin. Not for oily skin, though!

Save your money!

Everyone said its like the porefessional but they lied! I tried this stuff and you have to dab it into your skin, if you swipe the slightest bit then it comes off, so if you put foundation over it(which is the whole point) the stuff comes off. I have yet to try the porefessional, but if it’s anything like this (which I hope not seeing as how the porefessional is $30) then I’m glad I didn’t waste too much money,

Feels Great On Skin

If you have reasonable expectations, I think you will be happy with this product. It works very well on small pores, and really does make them appear to vanish. It does not take much product for coverage and it feels very nice on the skin. It will not cover large deep pores or blackheads. Baby Skin is a nice alternative for those of us that cannot afford the more expensive department store products. (My skin is very, very pale, and “normal” – so my review is for similar skin types.)

ALL IN ONE PRODUCT – I’m SO happy to be able to skip a few steps in my morning routine!

I read many reviews before deciding on trying Missha’s BB cream. I was sooooo scared…I wanted to find the right one. It was hard to decide on the exact shade but I found it after reading helpful reviews from people who obviously knew their stuff about make up! They would match the tones with MAC cosmetics foundation colors which helped me decide I needed to use GOLDEN BEIGE instead of the regular beige. And I was glad I was right! This matches my color PERFECTLY. I do not have to wait for it to “oxidize” as many other reviewers have. Since it’s SPF 42, I skip using a moisturizer and by the end of the day I do not have a coat of shine on my face like I usually do when I have to moisturize first! If you tend to have dry skin, I suggest you use a good moisturizer at night and exfoliate regularly so that in the morning, all you do is cleanse and tone and put this on. I bought it because I needed a lightener for my acne scarring…as well as love the therapeutic qualities I read about this. And I was sold as soon as I heard I can skip a few steps! Hate putting LAYERS on my skin! This has not caused me to break out whatsoever. Many reviewers say they haven’t needed to use foundation…and they are mistaken, this IS foundation, they are not skipping it. But if you want superior coverage you can layer foundation on top of it OR do what I do which is buff a little mineral foundation on for that flawless look. I haven’t used it long enough to know if it’s working on my dark spots…but if it does work, I will update this review. I apply with clean fingers which also contributes to less breakouts since I’m not using a dirty brush. Once you figure out what color you should get, buy this. It won’t disappoint!!

Missha bb cream is way better than American Versions

I bought this hoping to get a match for my skin tone. I am wear Mac C40 during the autumn/winter and NC42 in the spring/summer. This would closely match someone in between those tones. It is a little light for me now that it is summer but I just cover it up with either Mac NC 42 to match my summer skin tone. You can use a little bronzer lightly along with a translucent finishing powder to fix the bb cream instead of MAC studio fix. The product has a lot of beneficial ingredients that you may just want to use a simple moisturizer with it to prime your skin. The huge plus is that this item has an SPF 42, no need for additional sunscreen.
