Great for Dry Skin! - 21-06-2018 by

I generally have quite oily skin and would usually avoid a foundation labelled "hydrating", but due to winter and other foundations drying my skin out, I needed something to help restore some balance .
The Designer Brands foundation was my top pick mostly due to its reasonable price point and skin beneficial ingredients of vitamin c and green tea.
It comes packaged in an elegant square shaped frosted glass bottle and It felt like a much more expensive foundation with the classy packaging.
The product is dispensed through a hygienic pump dispenser and 2 pumps is more than enough to cover the entire face.
I found the smooth gel like texture to blend so easily and the shade porcelain ivory was a perfect match for me.It felt nice and light on my skin and left it dewy and radiant looking without being greasy.
The scent was very mild and pleasant.
I found this foundation stayed well and didn't sit in pores like most liquid foundations end up doing after a few hours of wear .
The coverage was medium for me but could be buildable to full if you have dry skin naturally.
I found for my combination skin that it didn't stay too well on my tzone areas,but a little powder over the top helps solve that issue.
This would work perfectly if you have dry skin as it is so hydrating.

Great product - 20-06-2018 by

I tried this out as I didn't want to spend too much on a foundation I was going to wear everyday to work. I have many "high end" foundations and I must admit this foundation is just as good. I reach for this everyday. sometimes I mix with Becca ultimate coverage foundation for a little more coverage. I need to set with powder but I do that anyway so doesn't bother me. great product at a great price!

Hydrating that's for sure! - 20-06-2018 by

This was good for a back up foundation however it looked more dewy than I would usually like- I suppose that's in the title though!

It's okay - 15-06-2018 by

Love this foundation, wore all day very nicely doesnt make you look like an oil slick just a beautiful foundation.

Love this!!! - 13-06-2018 by

This has become my new go to daily foundation. Everytime I wear it someone comments that my skin is glowing. Goes on well and lasts well, since I have been wearing this my skin has become so much healthier too. Love, love, love!

Better than expensive foundations - 12-06-2018 by

Love this foundation, used more expensive brands that doubled and tripled in price and this is just as good if not better. I get so many comments about how healthy my skin looks now and have found it long lasting and great coverage. My skin quality seems to be better, I get less break outs than I did using other brands as it is easier to remove at end of day.

Impressed for the price tag. Moisturising but still sticks to some dry flakes. - 07-06-2018 by

My skin is very dry, flakey and sensitive and becomes red and irritated easily. I have tried so many different foundations to try and find one that doesn't stick to, or accentuate, the dry flakes! I was so impressed with this foundation, especially for the price. It covered up my redness and is definitely buildable moisturising for my dry skin. However, the only problem is it does still stick to some of the dry flakes but can't complain for the price!

Love this!!! - 14-05-2018 by

Having spent hundreds of dollars on high end foundation in hopes of having that ‘perfect’ base I’m so happy I stumbled across DB Luminous Foundation. I have oily/acne prone skin and have always shyed away from dewy products thinking it would make my afternoon shine worse. Boy was I wrong, this product gives a healthy glow without looking too shiny. Any of the DB primers work amazingly with this foundation. I love this so much I’m on to my second bottle!! Will not disappoint.

Love this foundation - 08-05-2018 by

This foundation is so lovely, goes on smoothly and made my skin glow in all the right places. my skin felt hydrated and it lasted all day. Really awesome foundation for such a great price

AMAZING!!!! - 07-05-2018 by

I’ve been searching for so long for a foundation that doesn’t make me look orange, I have very fair skin and I find it hard to match my foundation I’ve tried everything from NARS to YSL and all there lightest shades had orange undertones but finally I’ve found the foundation I’ve been looking for at the perfect price aswell! It makes my skin look so dewy but doesn’t make it feel oily, a little goes a long way and it’s not cakey at all! The only thing I would say is make sure you use a primer that moisturisers your skin because it sometimes tends to stick to dry patches but otherwise it’s just an amazing product!

Nice glow and good coverage - 30-04-2018 by

I am 44 with fair, dry skin and dark brown spots/pigmentation. I like a foundation that is light to medium as I don't like anything sitting in my wrinkles, and I want a glow! I really liked this for those reasons. It is hydrating and has a nice luminosity to it without being too shiny or greasy looking. Nice for the price!

Amazing foundation - 12-04-2018 by

I have rosacea with dryness, and this foundation is a great find! It goes on easily, with a very dewey finish-which I like. Coverage is good and buildable, if you have very oily skin this probably is not for you, but us dry people, it is superb. Colour range for fair skinned faces is pretty good. For 19.95 I'm hooked! Very impressed with this foundation.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! - 05-04-2018 by

Love thIs foundation, provides a really nice full coverage that’s so nice and gives the perfect glow! I do set it with powder so it stays all day and even with powder on it still looks glowy, I use the shade true beige as it matches my fake tan and it doesn’t oxidise and go orange at all! Hands down my holy grail

Great buy - 02-04-2018 by

This is a lovely foundation. I’m not really into full-on, heavy makeup, prefer the ‘no makeup, just good skin’ look and this foundation is perfect for that. Light, easy to apply, doesn’t dry out my skin, doesn’t get patchy, looks good all day. And it’s affordable. And it’s such a big bottle, it will last me forever.

Affordable foundation - 29-03-2018 by

Another item bought based on reviews. Classic ivory was the shade I purchased and was a good match for my skin. I tend to have dry to combination skin. This foundation has medium coverage but it buildable.
First application my primer wasnt fully dry as I was in a rush so the db foundation did not sit well on my skin (my own fault) so all I can say is really make sure your primer is thin and dry. Nice dewy finish.

New favourite foundation!!! - 29-03-2018 by

I was sceptical trying this as I have oily skin and dewy makeup can make me look like a slime ball, but this, this is amazing. It looks gorgeous, I get as much wear without blogging as I would be with a matt foundation and my skin looks so amazing! Also you can’t beat that price!!!

I have mature skin, foundation buildable, good colour and does not dry. - 27-03-2018 by

I am in my 60's and have often used expensive products lured by the ' youthful glow' promised. This foundation has a good colour choice, I think I will buy the next tone up so I can blend my own shade, but this is not really necessary, just my choice. Product is buildable, so I can cover uneven area's without looking caked on, and use sparingly elsewhere, Mature skin tends to dry but I have not noticed any tendency towards 'flakiness' at end of day. I have not really noticed any sliding off of coverage either, but I use a powder over T zone. It is luminous without being shiny, I use over DB luminous primer and find the combination works well for me. I can't believe the price!

Does what it claims to - 05-03-2018 by

I have been a ten year user of MAC Studio finish...this is on par with coverage but a luminous finish instead of matte...I do use a translucent face powder to set.

Goes on quickly and is definitely a good way to save money!

Highly recommend!

Favourite foundation - 05-03-2018 by

This is my favorite foundation and I chose it over other high end brand foundations I wear. It is dewy and long lasting. I have dry skin and a lot of foundations dry my skin out. This doesn't. Easy to blend... for best results I use a damp beauty blender. Great for every day wear, or you can even build the coverage up and use for special occasions. Colour matching was a little bit difficult as there isn't a great selection of colours.

Coverage is brilliant. - 28-01-2018 by

I was a Maybelline FitMe fan for a while, then read the reviews on this product and thought I had to try it. You don't need concealer with the kind of coverage it offers - and I say this as someone with significant scar and discolouration issues. Apply with a wet makeup sponge, set with a good transluscent powder and it does not budge the whole day. Love.

The best foundation I've used. - 13-11-2017 by

This foundation actually IS hydrating, the first one I've found. I usually buy quite expensive foundations and they all dry out my skin - by the end of the day I have dry patches. This one does not, my skin still feels as moist at the end of the day as at the beginning. Gives good coverage and is buildable so you can wear it as thick or thin as you like - and all for $20!

LOOOOVE - 31-10-2017 by

Love this foundation, wore all day very nicely doesnt make you look like an oil slick just a beautiful foundation.

Glowy goodness - 27-09-2017 by

So impressed with this foundation for the price! I have normal to oily skin but I didn’t let that scare me off from a dewy finish foundation, I do set it down with pressed powder but it doesn’t lose its glow. Medium buildable coverage and lasts on my skins for ten hours with some breaking down around my t-zone area, but doesn’t bother me much for the price. Lovely fresh scent and blends easily. So worth it to try!

Love this foundation! - 13-09-2017 by

This foundation is beautiful. It blends nicely and leaves my skin with a beautiful glow. It wears well and doesn't look cakey.

Coverage is medium but buildable. I usually wear a NW25 in Mac and took a guess and bought 804 Nude Beige and it's great, probably even better for my colour. It will be perfect in summer and I blend in well while I'm paler.

A great foundation for the price.
