Let me just start off by saying that my skin is always always oily! Especially in the summer time! I have gone through sooo many foundations that were either too light or too dark. They were either harsh on my skin, not so harsh on my skin but very poor coverage, or just made my skin even oily no matter what setting spray or primer i had used. This foundation was so mind blowing to me that i just had to do a review. I honestly don't write reviews often but for this i just had too! First off, i received the samples (I chose "caramel") but when they sent me a lighter and darker version from that, "oatmeal" ended up matching my skin tone instead. Let me tell you! That is the best match, best smelling foundation, best coverage, my oily didn't even pop up all night (I went out that night) and it didn't settle in any fine lines or dry patches what so ever unlike other brands! I will never buy foundation from anyone else ever again. Frankie Rose has my skins love!:)
I just got my free samples in and I love it! I had been using another high end brand and this covers and looks so much better! I will be buying the full size!
I adore this foundation. After trying the samples, I settled on the shade "Vintage". My skin has a pink undertone, and "Vintage" is definitely golden. It's not as natural as I would like, but it's manageable. The next lighter shade (Angel) was a tad too light. So, I'd like to see more options in the palette.
HOWEVER, this is really nit-picky in the grand scheme of things. This foundation is legit. Take note, you won't regret it.
I bought this for my wedding. I wanted a higher coverage, higher quality foundation for the photos. I have sensitive skin and nearly every high-end foundation I've tried causes issues. Frankie Rose is long-lasting and doesn't cause any irritation or breakouts.
My bridesmaids, none of them were familiar with the brand, literally dropped their jaws as I applied the foundation. It magically erases all the flaws and leaves you with a perfect canvas. When topped with powder, this lasted all through the wedding, the reception, AND the after party without touch ups!!!
Does it look totally natural? Nah. It looks like you are wearing makeup. So, if you are trying to pull off the "I woke up like this" game, find another foundation. But, if you want to look like a properly made-up sexpot glamor girl, go ahead and add this to your bag!
