Pros: Liked the colour (good light) as had yellow undertones - normally foundations are too orange for me and I have yellow undertones to my skin so need a more yellow based foundation.
Cons: Felt quite oily going on.(although felt comfortable to wear once on) Not as good coverage as I had hoped - had to layer on red areas, under eye to get a good overall base.
Bought as I like the Soap and Glory range, finding the quirky packaging appealing and the products of good quality. This foundation was 1p more than my usual foundation, for same amount of 30ml.
It's also cheaper than all the other foundations I've bought, so that's awesome too! :)
Amazing! I'm so glad I bought this... I've been looking for a light enough shade - all the fair foundations on the market make me look orange, it's horrendous! I bought 'fairest of them all' and it's just perfect. I don't look like a tangerine, and it covers really well! Didn't even have to use any concealer on my acne scars, which is awesome...
Great foundation if you're looking for something more light feeling! Absolutely love it, it feels as though I'm not even wearing makeup, will definitely be repurchasing.
To be fair I may have got the wrong colour, I purchased 'In a Good Light' and it is too fair for me although I am quite pale skinned. I tried a little and it sort of sat on my face and looked speckly (I have no other way of explaining this!) It didn't really blend in. I think that the next colour up may be too dark so maybe this isn't for me afterall. If anyone wants my In a Good Light (I have used a tad) I am happy to send it to them, UK ONLY, free of charge as I don't want to waste it.

I found when i put the product on my face it was a bit too oily, i took a tip from a friend to apply one layer of foundation-go do my hair for a few minutes- then put another layer on, for coverage. I did this and my skin did look quite good, however it appeared more like a tinted moisturiser than a foundation. I was a little disappointed but i suppose everyones skin is different. I would prefer to wear a thicker foundation to last me the day, however this is good if i'm having a lazy day. On that note, good luck to all you girls who try it out! xo
I was really drawn in by soap and glorys packaging for 'Show Good Face' that it tempted me to buy the foundation with primer. Im used to wearing quite thick foundations (mainly because of my imperfections and red marks) but i really fancied a change. Reading that it 'lasts all day long' i thought this would be great for me while im studying, at work or at home.
PLEASE NOTE EVERYTHING ELSE FROM SOAP AND GLORY IS FABULOUS!!
I Love Soap and Glory but this product wasnt for me, I found it clumpy, not easy to apply and before the day was out it was melting off my face. It also did not provide good coverage at all. PLEASE SOAP AND GLORY COME UP WITH THE PERFECT FOUNDATION!!!
I was so pleased to finally find a pale enough foundation! 'Fairest Of Them All' really does live up to its name. I find it a bit too heavy in terms of coverage and had an issue with clumping, like some other ladies seem to (hence only three stars). I now tend to thin it out a little with moisturiser, then add a little more wherever I think I need it. This gives a nice coverage and stays matte for a good while (saying something, as I tend to put it on REALLY early before college and it's only in the afternoon that it needs touching up!) I'll definitely buy this again, and I'd recommend it if you want a good coverage or if you struggle to find pale make-up!
The Fairest of Them All is a perfect match for my skin, which is a relief after not being able to find a matching shade with other brands but it made my skin look extremely oily and a lot of the redness from my skin shows through. A good product, but not meant for my skin
I love pretty much all Soap And Glory products, but I was really disappointed with this!!! I found that it had really bad coverage for any blemishes I had, and it also went a bit patchy and clumpy throughout the day! However it did spread on quite easily, maybe would be suitable for someone with already very clear skin?
I only bought this foundation about 2 days ago and used it to go out that night, it stayed on so so well! It stayed on so well, the coverage was fantastic and it was so light i felt like I wasn't wearing any make-up at all! The price is also amazing for the job it does!
I don't usually like spending so much on make up but this is definitely worth it! covers so well and feels so thin and light works brill with the kick ass concealer
I like my foundation light and luminous but also to cover any blemishes. This foundation does it for m. When I wore this foundation lots of people commented on how luminous and healthy my skin looked.I would highly recommend this!!!
Not a massive wearer of foundation, usually only for special occassions and use a tinted moisturizer any other time. My skin is combination and most foundations are just too heavy.
This covers well enough, makes your skin look bright and healthy without that painted look. I really liked it. Used with the concealer it works really well. Best tip I saw was on the video Soap and Glory: How To Get Flawless Looking Skin.
Its too early to say whether its the be all and end all as i have only used it today, but so far so good. Looks good and feels good. Thanks again S&G!
Got this yesterday, with the light Kick Ass concealer from Boots.
I have very dry skin, and it now feels hydrated and more healthy. I could not go without this foundation now- Another well done to Soap & Glory!!
Thank You!!! x
Absolutely LOVE this product, never before have I found a foundation that makes my skin glow like this one does!!
I love this - it gives my 69 year old skin a gorgeous healthy glow. It would be even better with a bit more shimmer - up to now I've mixed S&G's body glow moisturiser with other foundation but never got it quite right. THANK YOU!
This product is absolutely amazing. It gives me colour, but doesn't make me look unnatural or orange. I come out with a bright, dewy glow and receive complements all day about how lovely and radiant my skin looks! I will always wear this foundation, I'm hooked.
I can't go a day without wearing this product. I had NEVER wore foundation before this, I always found it brought me out in spots, made me look oily/greasy and never complimented my fair skin.
I work in the make up industry and needed a light weight foundation that gave a nice glow. Fab product works really well for a natural look or mix 50/50 with a heavy foundation to get more coverage but still have that glow. Love the fact its not sticky or thick. Cant wait to try more of your make-up Thanks :-)
This product is amazing! I have quite fair skin, not super pale and I'm not really tanned, so I went for A Good Light. It's so light to wear yet completely evens out my skin and gives it a dewy look. My skin hasn't looked this good for years, and it's so nice to wear something that doesn't cake my face up. I've got combination skin; fine in some places, dry in others, shiny/oily bits here and there, but this foundation is more than a match for it. The first couple of times I've tried it, I put it on over my normal moisteriser and it's been perfect. This morning I moisterised with S&G Bright Here & Bright Now (which can, rarely, be a bit too heavy for my skin) and put Show Good Face on over it and it has left me a tad bit shiny.
I'm so happy I've finally found a foundation that works perfectly, and I'm going to recommend it to everyone! Thanks S&G, you rock!
I've never been a big wearer of 'proper' make up, and have only ventured into the world of foundation in the last couple of years due to my skin not being as well behaved as it once was. I've tried many different brands; creams, powders, mousses; expensive and inexpensive, and I never found one that was right.
Disappoijted to find that this and most of the S&G products have multiple parabens in them! Come on S&G. I expect better. Have stopped using all of The products I own that are S&G as I've had a break out on my chin like never before and I'm convinced it's to do with your ingredients. What a shame. I so want to love your products!! I love the body butters and all other lines but won't use them til the ingredients improve. DISAPPOINTED.COM!
Terrible, not at all what I expect from Soap and Glory. Made my face look really greasy. Ugh.
WOW - LOVE IT!!! I have fair, normal skin with light freckles and the odd blemish and I hate feeling like Im wearing foundation. This product is heavier coverage than the overhyped Garnier BB cream I recently tried, but still feels like Im wearing no make up. The colour is perfect for my skin tone ( I got ' Fairest of them all' ). Perfect everyday foundation. A Huge Thank you as my search for the perfect foundation is now over!!
Bought this today as I needed a new primer and foundation is running low. Got in it on the 3 for 2 offer so didn't pay for it really which is great. Got home, used my new S & G cleanser and moisturiser and put on my new foundation. Straight away it just evened out my skin tone and I could see my spots (caused by Rimmel primer!) we're already covered. The foundation goes on really easily and doesn't feel greasy or thick and heavy. Will see how it goes tomorrow in fullake up but so far so good!! A 2 in 1 job well done!!!
Isn't the best product from soap and glory! I was so happy to see that soap and glory created make-up products however dissapointed that the foundation is too shiny for my skin and didn't last long. However the foundation glides on the skin easily and after testing many foundations, this foundation actually matches my skin colour. My skin colour has a yellow tinge and there isnt many affordable foundations that match my colour, but this foundation matches my skin perfectly. Can't make my mind up on the product, but worth its worth trying the product.
Overall, I would recommend this product and I would say, S&G that maybe a foundation suitable for those with oily skin, or even recommendations on the foundation to what skin type it would best suit.
Was really excited when I saw that S&G were doing make up as I love the majority of their other products.. I chose the "a good light" foundation colour as the other ones seemed to light or to dark - I am quite pale and find it difficult to find a foundation that blends in well. When I first apply the foundation it seems quite yellow-y but after a few minutes in blends in quite well. Its very lightweight and my skin can still breathe. I would recommend using a good concealor if you have red blotches or spots as I find it does not cover them aswell as I had hoped and if you have oily skin I would not recommend this as my nose is quite oily and the foundation seems to just slide off after a few hours but if you use oil-control facial washes etc (as I now have been) it does make a difference but I still find I need to reapply on my nose.
Was really exited when I saw this but it feels thick and heavy on my skin. It doesn't take long to melt into thick patches, and the bottle also became blocked with the shaker component inside it. Really disappointed I'm afraid.
As soon as i got home i tried this straight away. The colour is great for my skin tone, as i wear fake tan constantly and it matches up to my neck seamlessly.
I have quite oily skin, however i applied the foundation and then put a translucent powder over the top. This sets the foundation and prevents it from going patchy.
I love all the soap & glory products and i use other products from their facial product range, so i knew this wouldn't make me get spots or anything.
overall i'm happy with the product and will defo buy it again!
Just bought this foundation today from boots.( I bought shade "nude peach")
Nice light easy to apply foundation. Stays put all day but as a mature lady I'm well passed the greasy breakthroughs. I like the design of the bottle as the nozzle is very tiny so you don't waste any.
Love the foundation and the fact its a primer aswell however the lightest shade is still a tad too dark for me :(
AMAZING foundation, I love it, Doesnt feel like you're wearing make-up, its so light and gives full coverage, feels and looks great on my skin. Will be buying this for a long time!! :)je
I look amazing, this is the best foundation i've ever purchased. This foundation isn't too thick in consistency, it has a light, soft feel once applied. It works as a primer and foundation so it is 2 in 1 - value for money. This gives you a glowing, healthy look which is very flattering. The product stays put all day long however starts to smudge and wear on the oiler parts of your face (T-zone). I do not recommend for really oily complexions. Wow I love it.
Wasn't expecting to like this as much as I do. I applied it using a foundation brush and the finish was amazing. I'd say the coverage is somewhere between a tinted moisturiser and a foundation which when my skin is clear, is exactly what I'm after. The finish is dewy and it has an obvious slight shimmer to the naked eye up close. It feels really lovely when applied and feels like you are not wearing foundation at all. Not sure how effective the primer is though, cause the staying power isn't fantastic, in all fairness though I have super oily skin. May have to try out with another one of my primers underneath. To prevent looking too shiny I am having to use blotting film every couple of hours. Even though it wears off a little during the day, it didn't cake up, gather in creases or go patchy and seemed to wear quite evenly. It's also worth mentioning because it is quite a light coverage I found I used quite a bit more product than I usually would. So i imagine i'll go through ths quicker than i normally would with a foundation. But the great price makes up for that, especially on 3 for 2. If this looked as good as it did when i first applied it, after a few hours I think I would have given this 5 stars. Out of my make up forever HD, bare minerals foundation and this one, my boyfriend prefers the finish of this one on my skin. Good work soap and glory team. For reference I'm a mac nw15 and I'm wearing the fairest of them all. Initially I thought it may have been a little too yellow, but it blends out great and makes my skin look a little warmer, which is a bonus, not mask like or off colour at all and I've had my boyfriend suss it out in varied lighting :)
It's easy and soft to apply (not too sticky), it gives off a lovely glow, and nfact I've had several compliments since I started to use it. It also lasts all day.
I bought the "Honey" colour foundation and it's the best one I've used!
Really really love this foundation - it give really good coverage without making you look like you've got oodles of make up on! xxxx
Soap & Glory yet again created 8th wonder of the world! This makeup is beyond amazing - it is liquid foundation with built in primer that covers great, you can build up coverage as much as you want, it glides on so smoothly and dries up quickly. It gives satin finish that looks radiant and all natural once applied. And it lasts all day long - fresh and "like it was just applied". I did not have to blot at all! Giving it 10 out of 5 stars ;) Great job!
... or hint to the people at S&G to make a suuuuuper light shade and you will officially have a customer for life (seeing as I already have pretty much the whole make up collection already ;P )
I am so gutted, I am really pale and have only found one foundation so far that isn't too dark. Unfortunately the lightest shade of this is the slightest bit too dark. However that said if you're not a Casper look-a-like like me, this is a lovely foundation with good coverage, it doesn't feel sticky on the face. I might see if I can mix it with something to make it lighter because I really want this to be my shade :(
I find this foundation really good, the only issue is it starts to slide after a few hours wear and appears patch over the T zone. I am a huge massive fan of all soap and glory products, i love the descriptions your place on your the products, can you place more informative descriptions on the make up range, I.E suitablility of the product to skin type!! Keep up this fab good work!!
I nearly passed out with excitement in Boots when i saw a make up range from S & G, you kept that one under your belts!!
I thought this was amazing, I'm Asian and find it hard finding a foundation that suits my skin especially as my skin is very yellow in tone. I gave up trying to find a foundation that suited my skin, and then I found this, it lasts long and you can build up coverage, it really is amazing. love it!
As I'm in love with the rest of S&G products, I nearly died when I received my foundation in the post. I'm mixed Asian-Middle Eastern and honey matched me beautifully! The foundation has great coverage, staying power and of course amazing packaging... I just want to say thanks!
All I can say is wow!! This is brill!
