Best foundation I have ever used - 23-05-2018 by

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. The price is a bit steep for me but I can't resist it. If I have a big event coming up or night out I have to use it. It gives me so much confidence. The brush itself for me was a bit useless and waste of product, but it's not to hard to remove which I did so it leaves a little tube nozzle that you can squirt product out very easy and precise amounts. I wear look 2 and I have light-medium skin tone and wear 2.0 in most foundations.

Best Long-Lasting Foundation! - 08-05-2018 by

This foundation really does look and feel like cashmere! It is obvious this foundation is of high quality because of it's staying power - it stays in place all day and night, until removing, even in the hot weather! I love the packaging, and the added brush is a bonus. It applies well and blends great into my skin. I find this works well with the Napoleon Perdis Auto Pilot Primer.I would highly reccommened this foundation!

Beautiful Foundation - 16-04-2018 by

This is an amazing product. It really does feel like cashmere and is so soft. The colours are great and so easy to apply with the foundation brush attached. Coverage is great and goes really well with the Camera Finish Gold Compact Powder from Napoleon. Highly recommend.

Amazing Full Coverage Foundation - 29-03-2018 by

I love this foundation for a night out or when i want full coverage for a long time. Wears great overtime. Have worn all day at music festivals and last perfectly. I have combo skin, very oily nose area and this still lasts well.

Really full coverage, i can get away with mixing in a BB cream and liquid illuminator to this and it is still great coverage but looks just as good without for a matte finish.

The only downside is the brush applicator you are supposed to use. On my first tube I just wiped the product from the brush onto a mixing palette then applied to face with a beauty blender as you really don't need much. I have just received my second tube and I managed to pop the brush tip off and I am still able to "lock" the cap in place so it won't spill.

I also do not experience any flashback despite the spf!

love love love - 20-03-2018 by

I LOVE this product - I was first introduced to it in 2017 when I had my make up done at Napoleon for a special event and I haven't looked back since. I buy shade 2 and shade 3 (one for summer/when tanned and one for winter). I love the finish it leaves on my face and it's easy to apply/blends well. A little goes a long way. I do however use my own foundation brush, and not the brush on the product. I have received many compliments on my skin since wearing this product and have recommended it to many friends. I love that it has SPF20 - such an added bonus. The only thing I don't like about it, is it isn't overly smudge proof. I do find it comes off on my hands/clothes often and I would say I am someone who wear a light coverage.

Fantastic foundation! - 25-02-2018 by

So thrilled - this foundation is in my pro kit for a reason! its long wearing, light weight, buildable coverage and superb finish. Able to leave it without powder for a glow (although you don't look oily!) or matte it with a powder on top for extra durability, the formula wont let you look dry or dull!

Reliable daily - 08-01-2018 by

I’ve used this product for the last 3 years now.. I use it as my daily foundation, it lasts all day and looks as good after work than how it was in the morning! Can’t fault it!

love the coverage - 18-10-2017 by

I love the dewy finish this foundation gives me. It is labelled as medium but it is definitely build-able if you're looking for something heavier. Would recommend but only if you like using the built in brush. I prefer to use my own brushes or have a regular squeezable foundation but I can't go past the great coverage.

Not for me :( - 18-09-2017 by

Purchased the Liquid Cashmere after reading an online review. I have normal/dry skin and found it slightly blocked my pores. Doesn't last longer than a couple of hours and isn't overly smudge proof. Not for me.

Gorgeous! - 06-09-2017 by

I love this foundation. Not a fan of the brush but love the product. Great texture and not cakey. I can have sensitive skin at times and alternate between dry and combination skin. I like a good coverage so I combine this with the Napoleon Perdis Camera Finish. It suits my needs perfectly!

Great coverage - 10-08-2017 by

I use Kat von d and Clinique but thought I would give this a go. It goes on creamy with a bit of a dewy setting. Great coverage. I think I could go up to 2.5 as I bought 2 but found it a little light. I have fair skin! My only complaint is the useless applicator brush. Hate it. I wish it was something you could twist off if you wanted as I just use a sponge and have no use for it.

New holy grail! - 07-06-2017 by

Saying this product is my holy grail foundation is a big deal as I feel like I've been searching for the last 8 years since I started wearing makeup! This has become my daily foundation as it has never failed me. I currently use Look 1 for when I'm not self-tanned or my tan is fading, as I feel like the shade slightly adjusts to suit. The name speaks for itself, it honestly feels so luxurious and lightweight, and the finish is just perfect. It's doesn't feel greasy at all, but it has a nice satin finish without looking too dewy which is a bonus for my combo/oily skin, as even at the end of a 10 hour day I only have the smallest bit of shine in my t-zone which is amazing considering matte foundations don't hold up that well on me. I didn't think I'd be a fan of the brush applicator but it makes it so easy and it doesn't dry up and go stiff like normal brushes after a few uses of liquid foundation. The coverage is totally custom too, I can apply a small amount on weekdays for a light coverage for work and build it up to full coverage for weekend outings. Such a versatile product definitely worth the investment, I've already got my friends and sisters onto it!

Glowing! - 13-02-2017 by

Absolutely love this foundation! I have dry sensitive skin and it glides on amazingly, covers everything, doesnt feel heavy and gives and beautiful glow without looking oily love it!

Best foundation I have ever used - 05-07-2015 by

By far the best foundation I have ever, ever used. The coverage is absolutely amazing (and I have very uneven skin tone) yet it goes on so smoothly and does not look cakey or shiny. Even though it is not marketed as their longest lasting foundation it definitely lasts the whole work day without needing a touch up. What I also love about it is the great colour selection - Look 1 is so good for fair skin. Plus it has an SPF 20 an absolute must for me. Big thumbs up for Nepoleon Perdis this foundation really is genius and I am now a very loyal customer.

Love it - 18-09-2014 by

Love this product, so easy to apply and great value

love it! - 10-09-2014 by

I love this foundation! I have been using mac studio fix for years, mostly because of the shade nw10 is a good match for me, however it covers almost nothing! I was sick of paying so much for something that doesn't feel worth it. I've finally discovered this & it covers my imperfections 1000x better & the shade look 1 is pretty close to my paleness :) I don't use the brush for application though, instead I use my beauty blender.

Best Foundation Ever - 08-09-2014 by

Napoleon Perdis Stroke of Genius Foundation leaves me looking like a china doll- flawless and radiant. Easy to apply and stays on the whole day! I am honestly committed to this product - there is no looking back.

DEWY FLAWLESS SKIN - 31-08-2014 by

This foundation is perfect for my dry skin especially when used with the auto pilot primer by Napoleon. I usually struggle to find a foundation that not only has a dewy finish, but also has good coverage. I use look 4 on my olive skin and it looks really lovely, covers my blemishes without being thick or cakey.

I would recommend this product even though its slightly pricey - it is worth it. Also when you buy from Adore Beauty it is about $10 cheaper than the Napoleon store or Myer etc plus free shipping.

Would definitely recommend!

Flawless application every time. - 12-08-2014 by

First high-end foundation purchase. Definitely worth it. I have many 'drug store' brands, but I will probably never go back to using them.

I have look 2 but it is too dark on my winter skin, it is a great match when faux tanned. Look 1 is a better match for my pale complexion.

The foundation is a thick consistency. A little goes a long way. Personally, I don't like the brush tip applicator and I don't use it. I would love it in just a squeeze tube.

I use it with both a beauty blender for sheer application and a flat top brush for a medium- full cover and it buffs in beautifully. Semi - matte finish, with a natural glow. Looks perfect and feels very cashmere!

I set it with powder and a finish spray to last all day without touch ups - I have combination skin on the oily side. I have dark circles under my eyes and I don't need to use yellow based corrector with this foundation, as it cover the darkness with 1 layer.
It is high-end and therefore expensive. But I wear foundation most days and I think I could get 4-6 months out of a tube...I hope. Probably longer when used alternatively with a drug store brand, which I do occasionally.

Great natural looking finish - 05-08-2014 by

Napoleon Perdis Stroke of Genius Foundation is by far the best for my almost-40 skin. I have pigmentation, and large open pores. Having always worked in the hair/ beauty industry, I'm used to always wearing make up.

I had begun to think that foundation was becoming a thing of the past, as they all just seemed to enhance my pores and fine lines, so that I looked 10 yrs older instead of better!
Thankfully this was not the case with Stroke of Genius Foundation. Even my husband likes the natural, but full coverage it gave me, and that is saying something!!

I will definitely stick with this foundation!

Great for those after full coverage - 15-07-2014 by

Napoleon Perdis Stroke of Genius: Liquid Cashmere Foundation is quite thick in consistency - almost like a creamy paste. I think it would really suit people with oily skin who are after matte coverage.

I have normal to combination skin, err-ing on the dry side in winter. Stroke of Genius was a little drying, and in winter I've had to use a hydrating serum, ultra hydrating moisturiser, lots of primer *then* Stroke of Genius ...not ideal for freezing mornings when you're in a rush. However that said, following the above routine and finishing with Stroke of Genius, my skin looks FLAWLESS.

Stroke of Genius is so creamy that I don't even need to use concealer - it covers everything. I just add blush/colour for contouring.

Overall, if you love high-coverage (or need it for weddings or a super long day) I definitely recommend, but those with dry skin keep in mind the need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!

RADIANT AND DEWY - 30-06-2014 by

Love the fact you can turn the applicator brush on and off so you can control seepage and wash it!
I'm not as young as I used to be and have a little pigmentation; but this covers well without heaviness and gives a lovely soft dewy complexion, not drying, or flaky and you barely need ANY!!
I often find I need to apply a fair bit to cover my sun spots but not with this - its covers really well without looking like you're wearing a truckload of makeup, it just looks radiant and fresh.

      Thank you for your email. Yes - your best match across the range would be Look 3.

    • Q: Hi again, thank you for answering my question on stroke of genius, do you use a setting powder with this foundation and if so which one and colour if I use no 3.
    • A: Hi there Beth,

      Thank you for your question - it's my pleasure!

      I would recommend a setting powder for most skin types, at least in targeted areas. When I wear it I can get away with not setting most areas except for down the nose, chin and forehead where I find I'm more prone to shininess.

      I really like the Napoleon Perdis Camera Ready Compact, which you can find here:

      The best shade for you would be either N3 or G3 - the "G" range has more golden undertones, while the "N" is more neutral. If you're not sure, go with N3, but if you know you have strong golden/yellow undertones go with G3.

      I hope that helped! Let me know if you have any questions :)

      Kind regards,
