Very disappointed for the first time try
About Me Classic Style
Comments about BEST FACE FORWARD SPF 25 - Best Bisque - 1 oz:
This is my first order after hearing good reviews from friends about this line. I decided to try several products and I got this on sale. However, this cannot be called as foundation. It is more like tinted moisturizer for me and as some reviews here mentioned. The coverage is less than my BB cream coverage. I was expecting too much in this product. I just put on 2 times now and I have few break out more than normal around my jaw lines and forehead. I don't know if I should blame this product. Thinking of return for a refund but it is not worth it since you have to pay for shipping again. I don't know if I shoul give one more try on different products in this line.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Most Beautiful Foundation of All
from Olathe, Kansas
I get compliments on this foudation all of the time. I am 63 years old with combination skin. This foundation gives very natural coverage and minimizes my wrinkles. It looks fresh all day while providing a beautiful dewy glow that is not oily. However, I have found that the foundation is nothing special unless you use the Healthy Finish Pressed Powder with it. The combination of this foundation and this powder gives a look that is absolutely unequaled. Always use them together. You will not believe how beautiful your skin will look!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Lightweight and Natural Looking!
About Me Natural Style
I've been using BFF for more than seven years. It is the only thing I can wear in hot weather. It kind of disappears somewhat if you are perspiring, but almost make up does that (except very heavy greasy ones). Solution: reapply, or apply multiple layers and use face powder to set. BFF feels like you are bare faced and have nothing on, but looks good. It must work wonders because my new dermatologist thought I was 15 years younger than my actual age. My one complaint: the nozzle DOES break and leak! Both tubes have the same problem, so it's not an isolated incident and many others have mentioned this as well. Big mess! Kindly fix this-- I know you can do it! Thanks for excellent products!

Very nice, but..
from Napa Ca
Well formulated, easy to apply with finger tips. (Sponge application would make it too shear) This foundation is similar to L'Oreal true match super blendable makeup, in feel and texture, but better! L'Oreal is too matte and chalky. Best Face is perfect. However with only four shades..Bisque being the darkest available (still a fairly light shade) it leaves medium skin tones out. Don't know why this can't be made in a shade or two darker. I know this has been mentioned before, but still no darker shades? For light skin tones, that want a beautiful Velvet Finnish...this is it!
Service and delivery comments:
This foundation is similar to L'Oreals true match super blendable make up, in feel and texture, only better! It applies easily with finger tips. (Sponge application would make it too shear)L'Oreal can be too matte and chalky, where as Best Face has a perfect Velvet finish! The only problem is that of the four shades, (Bisque being the darkest) medium skin tones won't find anything dark enough. Don't change a thing about this foundation, just add a couple of darker shades!
from Seattle, WA
It was a tough choice between the Best Face and Resist foundations. Both Fair-to-Light tones were a perfect neutral color match for me, which made me do a happy dance after a lot of Simpsons-esque pairings from the Pantone Color IQ system. Went with Best Face because the finish looked more natural, it has SPF, and I prefer tube containers over pumps because I like getting every last drop of product out without having to use a mini-scooper. It definitely is light-medium for coverage, which I like since I use foundation mostly just to cover redness, uneven skin tone and a little under eye darkness, without looking like I'm wearing a mask. Also oddly enough, I feel like this avoids emphasizing lines better than the Resist foundation. Wears ok without a primer, but definitely wears much better with one. For a color match this perfect, that doesn't cause breakouts, at half the price of most department store foundations, I wish I would have tried this sooner!
Love it for my oily skin
from New Orleans, la
I love this product. Applied with a Beauty Blender (correctly, meaning the Beauty Blender is slightly damp), it gives me a perfect finish for my oily skin. The shade range does skew light, so it's not suitable for every skin color.

Not for combination skin
from Katy, Texas
I have combination skin with some hyper pigmentation from previous blemishes and pores that I would love to be smaller. But for the most part, my skin looks pretty good, thanks to the PC skin care line. This foundation is unfortunately the worst PC product I have ever used. I applied it over the Ultra-light antioxidant serum and the ultra light resist SPF and it was very tacky and streaky. It settled into my pores making them appear larger which was odd because it had very little coverage and didn't come close to covering areas of hyper-pigmentation. And while my forehead can get a little shiny towards the end of the day, this foundation made my entire face so incredibly oily. It was so bad, I left work at lunch, ran home, washed my face and started all over with my regular foundation.

My favourite Paula's foundation
from Calgary, AB
I've used Paula's Choice for years, and used to be a big fan of the Barely There foundation, but I'm in a more senior role at work that calls for a more polished look, and I'm also finding that the sheer, dewey look is no longer right for my late-30s skin, so I tried samples of all of the All Bases Covered, Best Face Forward, and RESIST. Of them all, I liked this one the best. Though it's advertised as having lighter coverage than All Bases Covered, I found them quite comparable; perhaps this one is a little lighter in coverage. It's definitely lighter than the RESIST, but I don't like looking overly made up, so it works for me, with Paula's pressed powder to finish it. Colour-wise, it's definitely on the lighter side. I consider my skin tone fair to medium, and I'm using the darkest shade of this foundation.

best in combination
from San Antonio, Texas
I'm half Asian half Irish American so my skin tone is more olive and medium. I also have dry skin which means this is an odd pairing. I picked this for the texture and coverage. I use other products for moisture and treat my dry patches with a targeted treatment which allows for the application of this foundation. So why five stars. This is the best everyday foundation that still allows my natural skin imperfections to still show but cover enough to even out tone. I don't want to cover my tone so much that I loose what I look like without it. I use this to enhance my skin tone not hide my skin. I'm a natural look person with rosacea so you still see pink but it is evened and toned down while having a nice even texture. I use a loose sheer powder on top, eye liner and lipstick and off to work I go. For the winter I may switch to the creamer version of this but for our hot Texas weather this has been a great product.
from New York
I love this brand - the skincare is EXCELLENT - so I hesitate to give this foundation a bad review...but it deserves it. Sheer coverage, very streaky, settled into the larger pores on my cheeks (which, thanks to the Resist line, aren't even that large!) My face looked acceptably even from a foot away, but up close...not natural looking at all, really visible in sunlight. I'd be embarrassed to wear this out of the house. The Resist tinted moisturizer is so much better, and actually offers much better coverage, btw.
