Rated 5 out of 5 by Peanut69 Very Pleased
I bought this in the tan shade like I did his mousse which I love. I was amazed on the application of this foundation because I've never been a fan of cream foundations but I was truly surprised. First of all the tan is close to perfect. Because EB does not have shades in between I would have gotten one just a tad darker. The tan although NOT too dark its best used in the winter for me because I tan really dark in the summer. The shade is very pretty. The day I applied it I went to run errands and I got many compliments. It just makes you look classy just spectacular. Your skin looks so healthy and flawless. You do have to work a bit with the application its not our typical foundation. You don't need much unless you are achieving really full coverage thenn that would take several steps. The brush is so so soft. Like he said, if you want full coverage you make your brush tighter and for lighter coverage your brush lose. So it flawlessly sweeps on our skin. Really you don't need much. If you experience settling in your fine lines and creasing, you are applying way too much foundation. Its truly remarkable and it makes your skin look younger yet luminous. Men were the ones that complimented me quite honest. So for men to notice, I give this foundation 5 stars. :-)

I Love, Love, Love this Edward Bess Flawless Illusion Foundation. I'm 45 yrs old & have a couple sun marks from sun damage, a couple deep lines across my forehead and acneic skin. This foundation covers great and it stays all day without the need for touchups. I did not care for the brush, I use an It Cosmetics foundation brush for application and it works perfect. It is buildable, start with a thin layer and go from there. If you need a foundation with great coverage you love this foundation! Give it some time and work with it.

This foundation is so simple to use. Just brush all over face and neck in literally one minute (if that) and you’ll have the best looking skin you could possibly have. It stays on until you take it off, does not crease, and never gets shiny as the day wears on. I absolutely LOVE this product!

I was not impressed. It was hard to apply and it was literally impossible to do with the brush that came with the makeup. Will not be ordering again

Read the reviews and was hesitant to purchase. Then I decided to give it a try. Ladies who said it was cakey or too heavy, you were applying it all wrong. Just a light sweep and you will be amazed. You can layer to your own satisfaction. Lasts all day and gives you a perfect complexion!! Love it and will definitely reorder.

I've been using the Flawless Illusion Foundation for about a week and I'm very pleased with the results. I have mature skin, with all of the challenges that it presents, and find that Edward has addressed each one. The brush is wonderful and adapts to my needs including tightening it for more coverage under my eyes, and loosening it for all over coverage. I have been using the foundation with the loose brush in layers and the result is exactly the amount of coverage I want. I usually purchase light in foundation but went with medium in this and it's perfect. I would love to have a blush in this formula. Wonderful product, Edward. Thank you so much.

Edward Bess’s two little magnetic containers of foundation and blush/bronzer along with two kabuki brushes both protected by lid or a sleeve…. A dream for traveling to summer weddings, nothing spills, nothing skates. What could be simpler than that! I have just followed the Bess products on the heels of Eve Pearl’s TSV which is wonderful but I’m leaning to the more simplified routine. The medium shade of Bess lies right between both shades in Eve’s. I’ve been a fan of the Bess lipsticks but didn’t do well with the mousse. This is an exceptional product with a matt finish! I am 75 and have rosacea and of course a few wrinkles…. I am extremely pleased with this choice. Did you know that his lipstick tubes actually snap shut when closed properly? A well executed plan for maintaining and protecting product.
Rated 4 out of 5 by sharon361 Love foundation and brush- but something needs SPF
Goes on great with the brush - buildable coverage. Squeeze the bristles and use it as an under eye concealer. Late 50s and looks great. Medium is medium. The only problem with Edward Bess's stuff is that there is no SPF in foundation or that Pearl Primer. I really do not want to have to do 3 coats - the SPF, the primer and then the foundation.
(Would give 5 stars if SPF protection was in primer or foundation)
