Pricey (hence the four stars instead of five), but love the product!!

This is definitely the best foundation that I've ever used. I've tried about everything from Maybelline/ CG/ Almay to department store brands. I decided to suck up the cost and just go for it. So far I'm pleased. I read some of the other reviews that said the color was darker than advertised, (I am olive/ yellow skinned but on the lighter side) and was going to go for the Latte color but opted for the Ivory instead and it matches perfectly! It glides on and blends well with fingertips or sponge. I agree with other posters that it is just a tad bit greasy, so if you are extremely oily skinned, this might not be the foundation for you, but if you are normal/ combo then it shouldn't be a problem. I found that I can omit my face creme in the morning and just apply foundation, it seems to moisturize through the day and I love the scent of the makeup when I put it on~ very sweet, with a hint of citrus :) Any shine that I might have is easily controlled with some mineral powder.
feels good and glowing

Review covering the many aspects of choosing a foundation (since I have tried literally more than 50 foundations, natural and high end department store brands). COLOR: It's between a level 1 and level 2, neutral (I am a level 2 somewhat gold and this in nearly perfect for Fall/Winter. This would ideal for the level 1 wanting a slight sun-kissed look in the Summer. COVERAGE: Good thing that this is not advertised as full coverage. You can get almost full coverage initially, but this formula is not meant to last as such. Consider this moderate coverage if you don't have oily skin. FINISH: very, very luminous. If you want to re-create the look of skin in a perfume ad you will be very pleased! DURATION OF WEAR: around 3-6 hours but don't test it by touching your face. It does rub off in a flash. Blowing your nose, dabbing your forehead, getting a massage...forget it! HEALTH FACTOR: Like all of Mychelle, it feels healthful and safe. There is no irritation for me with this foundation, none. FEEL: As named, it is creamy and I would add that it is so wonderfully soothing. SCENT: It's a delicious, mild, and fruity. SKIN TYPE: Avoid if you have oily skin since it is too soft, shiny and probably won't stay on. Combination is okay and doesn't seem to aggravate/clog my acne prone skin. Dry skin ladies wanting glow definitely go for this one!
Quite nice, but...

I love that it's a stick-type foundation; easy to apply and blend into skin. The coverage is medium-sheer so it doesn't cover a whole lot but the dewey, radiant finish is quite nice. One disappointing factor is that it's too dark for my fair Asian skin (with yellow undertones). I wish they would create another color that's lighter than this one. Then I would give it five stars! スティックタイプなので手が汚れず、使いやすいところがお気に入りです。カバー力はさほど高くはないですが、うるうるツヤツヤな仕上がりはなかなか良いです。ひとつ残念なところは、わりと色白で黄色寄りなわたしの肌には少し赤黒すぎたこと・・・もう一段階明るい色が出ればいいのに、と思います。

очень удачный тональный крем. идеально подстраивается под тон кожи, не сушит и не раздражает мою кожу. Но не очень удобен в нанесении! a very good foundation. perfectly adapts to skin tone, does not dry or irritate my skin. But it's not very useful in application:(
Good foundation Хороший тональный крем

I liked the texture - it is very nice and mild, this foundation doesn't contain harmful chemicals, looks natural on pale skin, but the smell is too strong for me, it doesn't hide all the imperfections, bur the covering is quite good. I have a dry and sensitive skin, this foundation is not irrinating at all, but i think, it will be good only for people with dry skin, for those with normal or oily skin it could be a little greasy.Текстура приятная, состав натуральный, не вызывает раздражение. НО покрытие слабое, недостатки почти не скрывает, запах на любителя(для меня слишком приторный). У меня кожа сухая и чувствительная, раздражения этот крем не вызвал.Думаю, что хорошо подойдет для только для сухой кожи. Для дугих типов может быть слегка жирноват.
