I'm incredibly pale with pink undertones, so finding a foundation that matches my skin tone has been so difficult. This is a beautiful foundation, easily blended, and completely covers all the things I want covered. I bought #4 and I'm so happy with it! I just love it.

Holy Grail Foundation
I tried this foundation after reading about it on "A Model Recommends." I personally deal with redness and wanted something with a full coverage but a non-cakey look. I certainly found it with this product. I use a stippling brush when applying (found this gives a much better look than a beauty blender) and it covers most of my imperfections - still need concealer for big blemishes though. It looks like healthy skin - it should be noted though that for me (dry/normal skin) there is no dewiness. It certainly has become a great option for me and I think out of all the foundations I own this has the most natural finish. I'm certainly hooked and will continue to purchase despite the hefty price. I would say though that I wish the color range was wider - for fairer people there will be no issue but I am currently an 11 and I would not consider myself to have even medium colored skin.

MY HOLY GRAIL FOUNDATION!
Although I have pretty good skin, for my age, I never EVER leave the house without foundation. If I did then I would scare small children and animals as I look so ill, ha ha.
For the past thirty or so years I have spent a smal fortune on high end foundations, in search of the perfect colour match. Over the years I have found a couple that I really liked, but both were discontinued, and although I was reasonably happy with another one I had started using, I felt that I just couldn't get the shade right. I am very pale, with highlighted blonde hair, but anything TOO pale makes me look incredibly washed out.
Anyway, after doing loads of research on line, I kept coming back to this brand and although it was the most money I'd ever spent on a foundation, I decided to give it a go.
Initially I was undecided. I wanted to love it straight away, but I didn't. So I've used it every day for around four months now and I would never switch back.
The colour choice is baffling and the colours never look like the pictures, so I asked Space NK for a sample of two of the colours. The Rosy Beige matches my skin tone so well, that I actually look like I'm really not wearing foundation. My skin just looks good!
It's taken a bit of getting used to. I apply it with the By Terry foundation brush and initially I thought it was a bit powdery on me. But as I have got used to applying the correct amount for me, most of the time it looks dewy and flawless. The coverage is much lighter than I am used to, so much so that I can still see my freckles under it - which shows how natural it looks - but it's buildable. I set it with the By Terry powder and never have to retouch my face. It feels lightweight, as if I'm not wearing makeup and I love the superlight tube, much better for travelling than glass jars. I used to favour a 'made up' look. But using this and having a much more natural effect has made me realise how much more flattering it is my my skin tone and age.
