Does this work as well as advertised?

I have a horrible time finding the right foundation for my face. I used to use oh crap, I can't remember the name, but they blended it for you. No matter, they went out of business. Even, then it didn't completley match. I've used cheap to expensive. Now, I use Origins, but I am not loving it anymore. 

Has anyone tried this? What type of coverage does it have? & the big question, does it match as well as they say it does?

  • I haven't tried this I use nars. But a few friends swear by it. They say the color match is the best youll find in drug store. Ill by it for my winter foundation because I'm sick of buying two high end foundations plus I hibernate so why spend a lot on foundation. Not sure about the coverage though.

  • Oh I seen reviews by bueaty gurus that say the lump one is a nars dupe. But it has a dewy finish. This one is more matte I believe.

  • Thanks, I am going to check out Sephora. Hopefully, they can test it out on me.

  • I didn't care for my Sephora recommendations, there is no natural light in there and they match the color to your cheek, you need to match the color to your Neck, NOT your face or hands. I think I will give this a try though because I have been wondering as well, and if you buy it from Wal-Mart, they will refund your money or exchange it if the colors not right.

  • I've never used anything other than Merle Norman. But, I do agree with cassie to try Sephora. I love their service.

  • I wore it because it was the first thing I grabbed that matched my color. However, I knocked it over and it is a PITA to clean when it spills so I could only imagine what it does to my skin.

    I think I'll try anyway. Just have to make sure I don't spill it. haha
