I had my make up done with this foundation and it’s just amazing it lasted all day even in the rain and didn’t irritate my skin!

Not a bad product


Not a bad product, easy to use, covered well, it just didn’t last as long on my skin as I’d like! I have a combination skin but just found this was making me oily! Overall not a horrible foundation but I’ve found better suited to my skin!
  1. Beautiful

  2. Beautiful consistency


    This gives me a natural look, a must have
  3. one of my favs


    I love that it gives me such a natural look, without looking as though I have too much makeup. It is perfect for everyday use and for special occasions, which I use for both. One of my favourites
  4. I'm in love

    Sez Bez

    I haven't been happy with my foundation for a while now. Never lasts long enough, fine lines seem prominent, not able to build for a more even coverage etc. Read the reviews on this product and thought why not give it a go. And......I'm so happy I did. Easy to apply, feels beautiful and light on my skin. Easy to build more layers and my fine lines seem to dissapear. It's a little on the high...

  5. It’s good!


    I like this and reach for it all the time. It’s wonderful.
  6. Great


    Great foundation! Although this is a little heavier than my normal foundations I still really liked it as it covered amazingly but still looked quite natural and the colours matched perfectly to my skin tone
  7. Holy Grail


    I honestly only got this foundation because the title sounded amazing. It definitely lives up to it though. It is flawless and as soft as cashmere. I have never found another foundation like it. The coverage is amazing and the finish is always so beautiful. Its super easy to do a light natural look or build it up for a night time full coverage glamour look. I've been using it for about 3 years now...

    This is a beautiful foundation that blends beautifully and doesn’t look cakey or unnatural! Love it
  9. Favourite product ever!


    This foundation is a game changer! You can achieve a medium or full coverage and has an amazing dewy, glowy fresh finish it looks absolutely amazing on every skin type. It is a must have in my personal and professional makeup kit. If you’re more on the oily side don’t be scared of this foundation just because it is dewy it will still look flawless on your skin you may just need to use a powde to m...

    Such an amazing foundation it’s so gentle and has amazing coverage. Does not cake or dry out your skin at all and was wonderful on my sensitive red skin!

  13. Gorgeous foundation!


    This foundation glides on so nice, blends really well and lasts all day long
  14. Mixed opinions


    This foundation is beautiful and does glide on really nicely, however I'm just not sure about the longevity for my skin in particular. I have quite dehydrated skin and it doesn't seem to last all day for me.
  15. Amazing Coverage


    Napolean perdis has always been my 'go to' brand and i find that stroke of genius is brilliant an has full coverage. i also find this foundation is great for my oily skin and doesn't cake on like most other foundations
  16. amazing


    Napoleon makeup never fails me. !
    ive been using it on and off for years, trying to find something that even comes close to it. and i ALWAYS end up coming back to napoleon. i normally use the stick foundation but i thought id try this, i got it yesterday, wore it all day yesterday and it didnt budge. i love that i dont really need to use another brush. its pretty blendable with the brush on...

  17. Fantastic foundation


    Really like this foundation! Perfect natural looking base that isn’t at all cakey or orange. Leaves skin flawless!
  18. Great


    Such a good foundation that gives a great amount of coverage without looking cakey! Really like this one
  19. Love it!


    This is my favourite foundation. Dry to normal skin and it goes on like a dream and lasts all day. I buy it all the time.
  20. Great coverage


    I bought this foundation after a makeup artist used it on my face. The coverage is fantastic and the foundation glides on beautifully. I don’t like the applicator brush though so I use a foundation brush. I have freckles and brown age spots and it covers them well.
  21. By far my fav ❤


    Have used stroke of genius for years and i have loved. My skin has changed thru babies, age and seasons but this has been by far my fav go to! Great coverage and doesn't make my skin oily! I pair this up with camera finish for a flawless finish! 5 stars from me! Thanks again Adore xxx
  22. Perfect


    In my 70’s and like my skin to look natural . I watched the video of this product so glad I did , you only need small amount it glides on beautifully and looks so natural. I would highly recommend. Love it so much
  23. Awesome


    I have dry skin and it feels very nourishing and moisturising. Love how to blends out and the coverage. Recommend
  24. Loveeeeee


    This is amazing I love it so much. Definitely recommend it! This foundation is the perfect coverage and matches my colour perfectly
  25. Amazing


    I love the applicator on this product. Makes my skin feel amazing and soft. I love the high coverage and build ability
  26. Highly recommend


    Great foundation that isn’t too heavy and easy to apply
  27. Couldn’t recommend more!


    Great coverage! Great applicator! Love the product worth every penny
  28. Awesome


    really like the applicator on this product, the spf im a fan of so my skin doesn't get burnt. very full coverage and deosnt clog my pores
  29. Foundation


    I LOVE this foundation it’s the only brand foundation I’ve used for 10 years can’t find anything that remotely wears better then this does 100% recommend
  30. smooth


    I love how this has SPF while being the smoothest foundation ever! So easy to apply and looks great
  31. Awesome


    loving this foundation, perfect level of coverage without being too cakey, it lasts well if primed and set properly.
  32. Lovely


    Such a good foundation, perfect coverage and such a light weight feel
  33. Dewy and great pigmemt


    I’m 34 and live at the sunny coast, it wears well even in mid summer!!! Amazing pigment and can almost be a heavy coverage but with a dewy/glow finish. It’s my favourite and I mix look 2 and 3 depending on seasons and fake tan. My perfect foundation.
  34. Lovely coverage


    I've lost count of the different foundations I've used but since I found Stroke of Genius I'm a loyal re-purchaser. I have dry skin so look for a product that offers some moisture as well as good coverage. This product does both - beautifully. I tend to finish with a loose powder but the final look is still quite soft and natural. The brush applicator also makes touch-ups easy. Will be repurchasin...

  35. Go to foundation


    I’ve started using stroke of genius a few years ago and haven’t changed foundations since then. Its a media coverage and does not leave dry patches it blends really well and gives a satin fresh look!! Love this product, I always purchase another one before I finish it form adore beauty!!
  36. A good foundation if you want medium-full coverage


    I am a fan of this foundation, although as I've gotten older steer away from heavier foundations so I don't use it any more. The brush is handy though I generally prefer to blend with my fingers after using it.
  37. Love


    Absolutely love this foundation it’s a medium-full coverage foundation and doesn't accentuate to dry patches. Highly recommend this foundation
  38. Good night time foundation (Full coverage)


    I started using this foundation a few years ago after always getting my makeup done at Napoleon stores and them using this. Honestly cant fault it really, it is full coverage and great for events/going out at night. Not so good for day time because it is on the thick heavy side of foundations. I have since though tried the Giorgio Armani luminous silk foundation and been converted to it just becau...

    I have gone to Napoleon a few times to get my make-up done for special occasions and they always use this foundation on me so I decided to buy it.

    It has the most beautiful finish and blends really well. I use LOOK 1 if I am natural and LOOK 2/LOOK 3 for when I'm tanned.

    It lasts all night and does not look cakey at all.
  40. Really nice foundation


    This foundation is high-coverage with a lovely satin finish. I love the packaging, the brush makes it easy to apply, then I just blend it out with a wet sponge. It’s quite a thick formula, and has broken my skin out a couple times when wearing it for several hours.
  41. great for oily skin


    I have been using napoleon since high school and i naturally have oily skin and this works so well for me and my type of skin. i have tried mac makeup and it just doesn’t work for me. this gives me full coverage and lasts me around 6-9 months.
  42. Brush is useless


    The foundation itself is quite nice and I find it is easily builadable to how thick you want it.
    I find the brush itself is useless and creates a streaky appearance on your face so would prefer if this was in a pump.
    I find the range of foundations is quite limiting on colours so you might need to mix a few together to get the right colour.
  43. Looks great and lasts all day


    Super impressed with the longevity of this foundation. I've got fairly sensitive skin but this doesn't break me out at all, even after wearing it all day. Won’t be going back to my old foundation, love this!
  44. Holy Grail


    This foundation is my holy grail! Beautiful dewy finish, full coverage with a creamy texture and lasts all day.
  45. Really good coverage


    Absolutely love this product. Let's your skin breathe when wearing but also has great coverage!
  46. Best foundation I have ever used.


    I love this foundation, i put it on at 7am and by 9pm it still looks absolutely flawless. Even if I sweat, it’s stays amazing. I have even gone swimming with it on and came out of the water and it still looked fine! Recommend to all!
  47. Really good


    This is so soft and bendable, really good coverage and longevity too!
  48. Fun foundation to apply


    I love applying this foundation and it goes on so smoothly. I found it difficult to get the right shade at the start and now I blend it with a light shade by The Ordinaty to get the perfect colour. The textures of the two foundations seem to blend well.
  49. Full coverage


    Very full coverage foundation. On the thick side of foundations but still applies easily.
  50. Could do a lot better


    not a huge fan of this, I usually purchase a lot of Napoleon products but this foundation let me down, the colour range is not amazing and its texture feels heavy and slightly sticky.. I know its a dewy effect but I just wasn't a huge fan
  51. Not that great


    I didn't really like this product. It's really thick so my face felt like it had paint on it! It also didnt blend well and dried funny.
  52. Amazing


    This foundation has stayed put through an entire night of clubbing, which never usually happens for me. I naturally have very oily skin, so the first places my foundation disappears from is my T-zone. The Stroke of Genius Liquid Cashmere Foundation is now my go to foundation for everyday wear and special occasions.
  53. My go to!


    My go to! Good coverage but not too heavy, easy to apply with the applicator brush and then with a beauty blender.
  54. Harder with brush attached


    Although I really liked the foundation itself (great colour and coverage), I actually found it harder to apply with the brush attached, and harder to gain control of the amount of product dispersed with each squeeze. Wouldn't repurchase this one again.
  55. Very nice foundation


    The thing I love the most about this foundation is how well the colour matches my skin tone. I love that it is a buildable coverage and the brush function makes it really easy to control this. The brush also prevents wastage and the tube lasts longer than expected. For my skin I really need to use a primer before applying to get the best result. Also love that it has the SPF. Will buy again!
  56. Perfect day and night


    Nice foundation for day and night use. Doesnt seem to make my skin feel oily. Very full coverage look.
  57. Full Coverage Look


    I love using this foundation for going out/night time. Its really full coverage and goes on smoothly. Cant really go wrong with it. I guess the only downfall is that they have limited shades. Sometimes the foundation gets stuck in the application brush.


    Full coverage foundation. Applies really easily. Creamy consistency.
  59. buildable coverage


    I love a foundation you can wear on all occasions, this foundation is perfect. It's build-able to full coverage with a nice glowy finish. Need to use with powder because it tends to go a little oily throughout the day
  60. Excellent full- coverage foundation


    I love this foundation- It's build-able to full coverage and is a nice satin finish. Definitely need to powder though, as it goes a bit oily towards the end of the day.
  61. Fantastic!


    I have dehydrated skin that sucks all the moisture out of any foundation I wear. This one sat beautifully on my skin all day. It's dewy and didn't create around my face! Works great on top of their gold primer
  62. Beautiful Natural Glow


    Great foundation for every day or evenings as the coverage can be buildable. the foundation is easy to apply and has a beautiful natural glow finish. I use my own foundation brush, don't like the one it comes with.
  63. Great foundation - Full coverage


    This foundation I find is perfect for nights out or events - its really full coverage and applies easily. The packaging is a little bit useless though it comes with a brush applicator attached to it but its really hard to get product out of and so I end up having to get the product out and use my own brush which probably wastes a little bit of the product - getting stuck in the brush. Apart from t...

  64. Full coverage


    I love using this foundation for when I go out at night - its really full coverage. Applies easily and is smooth. Doesnt look cakey.
  65. Glowy finish


    This is my favourite NP foundation. Beautiful glowy finish that blends out easily. Not a setting foundation so you do need to powder but it does last all day once powdered. My only criticism is the brush applicator, which is a bit unhygienic as it’s difficult to clean, and gets cakey if you don’t clean it. But I can deal with it because the product is so good.
  66. not good


    this product makes your skin incredibly oily/shiney. Not a good look
  67. lovely


    I love how the brush is attached to the actual bottle only downside is you cant completely spread it evenly and have to use a beauty blender to complete the look.
    shade range is nice and lightweight
  68. Pretty Good - Full coverage


    Not a great variety of shades (like most of the napoleon products) but really great full coverage and applies really nicely.
  69. Full Coverage


    Really great for full coverage looks. Applies easily.
  70. Ok


    Not really impressed with the shade range, but the formula is pretty nice.
  71. Lives up to the hype


    I’m not usually a big Napoleon fan. I’ve tried many different products from the brand over the years but this is one that really surprised me. It’s a great buildable coverage but without looking cakey. It leaves a beautiful fresh sheen on the skin and makes you look revatilsed and well rested. It’s great for covering blemishes and I rarely need to use concealer with it. I have very oily skin and I...

  72. Probably the best Napoleon foundation


    Over the years I've tried many Napoleon foundations. From Camera Finish to Chinadoll, this is my #1 pick. Stumbled upon by chance after my Nan bought it and was colour matched wrong so she offered to me. Suits my skin and it really does glide on like cashmere. The packaging is odd... not necessary if you ask me - i ripped the bristles off. It does oxidize slightly on my skin but it actually really...

  73. Flawless foundation with buildable coverage


    I absolutely love this foundation. I’ve tried many different ones and have paid so much money but this one is the most flattering and covers all my pigmentation and lasts all day. Have recommended it to everyone who has told me I have a great complexion ! I love how I can layer it without it looking cakey or an odd shade and the colour selection is perfect.
  74. Great product!


    Love this foundation! Works so well, use a light cover for those chill days and apply more for a more even coverage and hides my blemishes!


    Overall, the product and foundation it's self is really great however the only fault is the packaging, the bristles and need for you to turn it on and off is really inconvenient. the bristles are impossible to clean without war too much makeup being drained and all the makeup gets stuck at the top instead of all the way through the brush. ended up cutting the top off on the otherwise fantastic fou...

  76. Full Coverage


    I love this foundation because I can wear it when I have a tan but it also seems to just blend in well even when I don't. I Would consider it a FULL coverage foundation and great for going out, I also wear it some days when I need my makeup to last the entire day! It is a thick consistency and does need to be blended a little more than other foundations.
  77. Top foundation


    Probably one of my favourite foundations for medium- full coverage and a dewy finish. Love how it looks on the skin!
  78. Fabulous


    Fabulous foundation and also very buildable. Love this.
  79. Perfect Glowy Finish


    I have been searching for ages for a foundation with this finish. I have very dry skin and the finish is very dewy/glowy. The coverage is amazing too - it's very thick without looking cakey.
  80. Easy peasy


    It's nice, I like that you can build it up and it's so easy to apply.
  81. Happy


    If your looking for a good coverage, then this foundation is for you, it’s very thick and creamy, I’m using this as my night time/going out foundation for when you want a more heavier coverage, I dont use the brush applicator , and probably would prefer it to not come with that.
    I’m usually a medium/nude beige, I got the look 3 , it’s a lil dark but I can get away with it I’d probably try th...

  82. Full coverage and Hydrating!


    This foundation is one of my favorites it goes on really smoothly and can be built to full coverage. Love it!
  83. Perfect


    I have oily to normal skin and this was amazing! So easy to apply and blended perfectly to my skin shade. Even without a powder on top it gave me the most flawless skin without feeling heavy. This will be my new fav foundation
  84. Full coverage


    This product is great for full coverage looks and it doesn't dry out the skin!
  85. Beautiful dewy skin


    This is my all time favourite foundation from Napoleon Perdis! It completely blurs out any texture that’s on my skin and gives me a stunning glow. It’s perfect for dry skin as it smooths over all of my dry patches. It has medium to full coverage so it can be worn daily and on nights out. I just wish it came without the brush applicator as I feel like a lot of product can get stuck in there. When I...

  86. Nice full coverage


    This foundation has a brush attached which I use to apply the product to my hand then I use a foundation brush to put it on my face as I don't know how I would clean it. I do like the foundation, it has nice full coverage
  87. Beautiful


    This foundation is great if you're looking for full coverage. I personally don't apply it with the brush but I still enjoy using this foundation and it doesn't look thick and heavy on my skin
  88. Liquid Love


    This is one of the best liquid foundations I've used, worth every penny.
  89. Best coverage


    Like many others, I have trialed many foundations that provide full coverage without looking like I've dipped my face in a can of Dulux paint.
    This product not only fully covers my blotchy pigmentation but provides that dewy finish that makes my skin look healthy and well-nourished. I'd suggest a small brush of powder over the top if you have oily skin.
  90. My favourite foundation


    This is my regular foundation. I have pale skin which can be very sensitive and dry and also have some mild acne scars. This foundation has really excellent coverage and doesn’t aggravate my skin at all. Best colour matching I’ve found and gentle formula. Love this foundation.
  91. My “go to” foundation, excellent coverage!


    I have combination/acne prone skin, and do occasional promotional modelling - this foundation does it all! It provides the best coverage of my acne and scarring, it feels great my skin and is super long lasting. This is my go to foundation every time! I also have very pale skin, and surprisingly it blends very evenly.
  92. Perfect, perfect, perfect


    I LOVE this foundation. I have tried a few different brands (MAC, L’Oréal, Maybelline) and different Napoleon Perdis foundations, but I keep coming back to Stroke of Genius. I have dry, sensitive skin so most foundations start to flake on my forehead and chin by the afternoon. Stroke of Genius doesn’t do that. It has a beautiful velvety, cashmere appearance, full coverage without looking or feelin...

  93. Great foundation, not the packaging


    I loved this foundation however I found I never used the brush as it was hard to smooth the foundation over my entire face with it. I would always use my foundation brush or sponge instead.
  94. Great Foundation


    I love this foundation different shades have different undertones but look 3 is great for wearing with fake tan.
    The applicator brush is good for touch ups but to apply I would use a foundation buffing brush or beauty blender. It works well with the napoleon perdis auto pilot primer.
    It has a very smooth consistency and is great for normal to dry skin.
