Absolutely awful colour (medium shade), why do make up artists assume tanned skin is orange? This foundation is worse than a fake tan gone wrong. Very light coverage didnt even see if it would last all day removed it 30 seconds after putting it on. Shades need dramatic improvement and coverage is poor. Want so much more for a Mally product because she is an absolute star! Nevermind.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dee057 pretty good!
I like this foundation, the coverage isn't too heavy and it looks fairly natural and goes on very well even using fingers
on my skin it certainly isn't bullet proof and needs touching up at lunchtime but its better than most and I would buy again

Rated 5 out of 5 by SparkleBaby Amazing - you must try this!
I got this as part of the TSV but wanted to write my review for this on it's own.
I have very porcelain (Scottish!) skin and have struggled to find a foundation over the years and have always just settled 'for as near as' and had to take the foundation practically down my whole neck to hide any tell tale 'tide marks', The colours were always too dark, too light, too pink, too orange, too chalky....but my search is now over!
I chose the fair which is the lightest colour to choose. I always use Philosophy 'The Present' primer and have never needed to use much make up because of this and it's the same for Mally make-up. 4 pumps is adequate for my whole face.
I use a sponge to apply - personal preference - and I will confess that when I first started applying, the foundation looked as if it was streaking and was going to be waayy too light for me. Another duff purchase I sighed to myself...but then...
I have no idea what the magic is in that foundation but right before my eyes in a matter of seconds it colour adjusted to my skin and I had the most beautiful air-brushed looking skin with make up that was a PERFECT match....I was amazed.
I felt like a million dollars that day and the amount of compliments I got on how fresh looking and pretty I was, was unbelievable!
Every day I am amazed at how it colour adjusts to my skin - and I can stop the blending literally just under my chin - and every day I feel very pretty :)
It does last all day and I look as fresh at 6pm as I do at 6am although I do feel that my primer has a helping hand in that but there is no flaking or patchy skin even after a busy day at work. Sometimes I feel sad that I have to remove my make up as I think if I sleep sitting up it will look fresh for the next day!!
I LOVE watching Mally - she is as mad as a box of frogs! - but I have always thought that she took her research very seriously and now I have the proof.
What she says she will promise you - she actually does it and I have no hesitation in believing any promises she makes.
Thank you Mally - you have made me feel very special and I also had loads of confidence as I am not worried that people are looking at my face and spotting the 'not quite right' foundation. I look just like me but with perfectly air brushed skin :) x
You must must buy this foundation (and I also cannot believe how amazing fabby the mascara that was also in the TSV either...another promise which Mally fully delivered on)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Brunnneria Great for my oily skin
Most foundations dry me out around the eyes and float off my T zone on a slick of oil by 11am. No primer has ever made a significant difference.
I like Mally's powder foundation (in 'fair') but it doesn't cope with the oil well. I also find the poreless not powder thingy is good, but doesn't absorb enough oil by itself. Laura Geller's balance and brighten has great oil absorption - if I put it on thickly - but that can look overdone.
Don't know how Mally has done this, but she has achieved a near-perfect colour ('light' is similar to her powder foundation in 'fair'), a beautifully weightless gel texture (buildable) and a performance that doesn't lift off oily skin.
If I add the oil absorbing poreless powder stuff, I get foundation that sticks better and stays shine free for longer than anything else I have found. Then I can blot the (inevitable) shine and it doesn't lift off. Truly remarkable.
I can also use it around my sensitive eyes, without discomfort.
It is more expensive than other foundations, but you get what you pay for!
Thank you Mally and the team, I really appreciate all your hard work!

Rated 4 out of 5 by princesskaren nice foundation
Bought the mally foundation in the TSV collection. Usually wear the bare escentuals foundation but wanted to try something different. Have quite sensitive skin and have found liquid foundations can cause breakouts in the past but have been using this for over a week now and skin is fine. Usually use light BE and bought light in this and found it to be perfect shade for my winter skin however got a little bit of a tan on my face while out in garden and thought i'd try the medium shade and found it to be much darker and more orange toned maybe be ok to use if i manage to have a holiday abroad this year and get a dark tan. Quite light coverage and would also need a concealer to cover any blemishes but gives a nice smooth cover. Only thing that lets it down for me is the fairly high price and the container which is a pump system without being able to see inside and i always like to know when i'm running out before i do.

Hello, I bought this as part of the recent TSV had to wait for it on waitlist, it came today. WOW, what can I say, Mally, you are a genius , that 'warming' effect is fab, my skin is so difficult to match, dont know how you have done it , but keep doing it. I look so healthy, and with the blusher on top, ready to go, husband was staring a bit today but didnt say anything, even in the bright sunlight, this makeup defies detections. I am now a Mally convert, as wasnt sure at first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by jaycee17 airbrushed finish
I must have tried most foundations on the market but i have to say this is far and above the best.
it feels light on the skin but gives a soft and flawless finish which leaves my skin looking natural and healthy,it also last all day without touching up
I usually use fairly light in BE foundation and the light option in this is a perfect match.
Well done Mally another fantastic product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ChocolateLabrador Gives a beautiful professional finish
I can't really understand the low reviews for this product, it's excellent. I thoroughly moisturise, then use Mally's primer, then apply this with my fingers blending if needed. When I look in the mirror my skin looks great, like its been airbrushed. From experience, I do think you need to moisturise really well & use a quality primer with any foundation, maybe that's where some people are going wrong. I bought the Light shade, I am pale but not porcelain fair & this is a perfect colour match. Another Great product from Mally I've been really happy with xx
