Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweetpea2 A perfect foundation (at last)
I have tried numerous foundations (liquid, mineral, powder) cheap, middle priced and ultra expensive, but until now not found one I'm happy enough with to stay with,,until now!!!!!this foundation brings everything I want, matte finish, staying power, easily blended and easy to build coverage. I ordered the light (perfect for my fair skin) I tried first with the few drops it suggested and used the brush. The result was fantastic although I did add a little more to see how builable it is and it worked very well. I had a full busy day and that evening it looked just as good as it had first thing. I'm totally blown away by this product and immediately went to order another (always got to have a spare) and unfortunately it's out of stock, I'm praying that some will come back into stock soon as I don't think I could get away with darker shade. Also as mentioned before without the brush would be good. Thanks qvc and algenist , at the grand age of 44 I have finally found the one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ayekay47 Thank you QVC
Wow! At last, a foundation that actually stays on my face and covers all my pigmentation marks. I have tried and returned so many different foundations thanks to QVC returns policy, but this is the first 'keeper' for me. No amount of different powders/creams/liquids have even come close to this product. Only one thing, please please please start selling it without the brush every time - it's a lovely brush, but I really only need one. If only I could just repeat purchase the foundation on its own, I would definitely get a couple of different colours in readiness of the summer skin tone changes. Love it :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by AntoinetteRose Great foundation
Love this foundation! Just ordered my second bottle in light. Stays matt, gives great coverage and lasts all day. Wish it didn't come with the brush every time though - bit unnecessary but love the foundation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Loobyloo22 Found my foundation
Really like this foundation from Algenist, its light texture is great, I feel like I don't have anything on.
It applies easily, goes matt straight away and stays matt, I apply it at 8am and at 9pm when I look at my skin just before I cleanse my skin it still looks pretty flawless.
I apply a few drops all over my face with my fingers then pat a little extra around my eyes for more coverage for dark circles, no caking,drying or rubbing off.
I think the colours are a good range for most skins, I bought Light. to give you an idea of colour choice I wear Light in Doll 10 and Fairly Light in Bare Minerals.
Brush is also lovely quality but I like to use fingers with a liquid foundation.
Highly recommend you give this foundation a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Babybella I've found it
I've tried so many foundations over the years - I like bare minerals and Tarte but I've never gone wow, I've found the one, but with Algenist I have. I'm 47 with hormonal skin, suffer from redness, oil slicks and dry patches. This foundation is excellent, didn't use a primer, great medium to full coverage that looks very natural. I find I cannot get away with no makeup days but find that if I use foundation I need full makeup, not with this, it has a great look which is natural, covers everything but I don't need to do a full makeup to look good. Good lasting power, just a top up of powder later in the day. What is also good is it is great for your skin.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Caj1201 Full cover
I bought this in the tan shade as I never put my face in the sun but my body does colour quite easily. The shade is a typical tan colour - a brownish orange - I mix it with a lighter shade from a drugstore brand for the perfect colour for me. It is no where near as runny or light finish as the demonstration would suggest, in fact I find it to be quite thick and drying when worn. Be prepared, the cover is so full it can look mask like but if you have scars to cover then this would be perfect. I would have given it four stars, as I do quite like the fact it lasts for hours, but it is a dull finish rather than dewy which I would have preferred and to be honest, expected from the QVC demonstration. Once mixed with my drugstore light dewy finish foundation, it does look quite nice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MonicaM Excellent foundation
This serum foundation is amazing! It's very lightweight but gives medium coverage and leaves my skin glowing with semi Matt finish. My skin haven't looked that good in years! I always buy foundation in light, but this is quite dark with golden tones. It's perfect for summer, but in the winter I will have to buy fair!
Overall very happy with this serum foundation, will definitely repurchase.
