Love the product but not the brush

Susan

Tried this for the first time after having used the Camera Finish previously. As my wrinkles are getting deeper and my skin drier I wanted to move away from a powder/matte finish to something lighter and more dewy. This foundation is beautiful for that. I don't like my make up too heavy though, and I have to say, for that reason, I hate the applicator. Is there a way to remove it? Maybe I am just old fashioned or not using it correctly, but I found the brush was applying the product way too thick for me. Have had to work around it and probably will continue to do so just because the product is so lovely.

Not a bad product

Cindy

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!

  2. full coverage

    tee

    I have been using Napoleon since I first started using makeup, I love how full coverage this is but it is also not super thick. I also use their concealer and I use their primer for specials events or a night out. I also love the dewy look it has before I put powder on.
  3. Loving for everyday wear

    MJ

    I have oily skin and live in a warm climate. I love this foundation! It doesn’t slide off my skin throughout the day like most others do. I found it doesn’t oxidise over time either. I use it as an everyday foundation, for those days when I just want to wear a light coverage but diminish skin imperfections. I did not like the brush at all but then found out I can take it off.
  4. Doll Skin

    Abbi

    I have been told when wearing this that I look like I have doll skin which I definitely do not when I have a bare face! Love the smoothness of this and it has a nice sheen to it without going oily. I also like that you can apply a light natural layer or build to fuller coverage. Don't love the brush but can live with it as it is such a nice foundation. I had to move to this one after they stopped...

    I’ve been using this product everyday for around 5 years works so well on my skin! Such a natural looking foundation with good coverage and colour
  7. Long lasting

    Cass

    I hadn’t used Napoleons since they stopped producing china doll and ever since I’ve struggled to find a foundation that I love. After jumping from brand to brand so unsatisfied I tried this at recommendation from my makeup artist and I absolutely love it. Easy to apply, stays all day and has a smooth finish.
  8. Wow!

    Trisha

    I'm an extremely pale person. I was concerned that with the limited colour selection it would definitely not suit me.. but it did! This foundation lasted all through the day and night and still looked perfect.
  9. Good foundation

    Kelly

    The first time I bought Napoleon's foundation, it's really convenient to use. It can cover skin defects to a large extent, and the price is very suitable. I love it.

  12. AMAZING

    Natalie

    This was used on me for the races last year and I bought it straight away- lasts ALL day and not cakey, just perfect.
  13. Amazing flawless coverage

    Tayla

    High coverage but doesn’t look cakey or grab to dry patches. Super hydrating and a natural colour
  14. Genius!

    Jade

    I love that the coverage is buildable, so I can wear it on so many different occasions so versatile and my go to foundation. I have been using this foundation for 2 years and I absolutely love it. So hydrating while also being lightweight and providing coverage.
  15. not for me

    salad

    not a big fan of the brush design, it's easy to apply but ended up still needing to use my fingers or a blender to cover the foundation all over my face.
  16. Great coverage and finish!

    Elle H

    I received a sample colour wheel of this foundation and the coverage and finish were great quality! Hid blemishes and when used with a setting spray lasted all day!
  17. Hydrating

    Alana

    I found this foundation to be hydrating on my skin, whilst still providing good coverage. My only gripe with this product is the attached brush, which isn't the most hygienic as it's difficult to clean.
  18. Great!

    Lucy

    This is my Fav full coverage foundation. covers all spots and is a lovely finish!
  19. Favourite foundation ever!

    Hannah1998

    I have been using this foundation for years and i honestly haven’t looked back since I first tried it about 5 years ago! I have dry dull skin and textured skin I find this foundation so hydrating while also being lightweight and providing coverage. I love that the coverage is buildable, so I can wear for it so many different occasions so versatile and my go to foundation.

  21. All time favourite

    Emily

    I’ve been using this foundation for a few years now and it’s still my all time favourite. I use it with a beauty blender, it’s buildable full coverage without looking cakey or too heavy on my skin. My skin has been both dry and oily and either way I’ve never had a problem with this foundation.
  22. Good

    Singh

    Good product, stays on all day. Has spf that adds extra protection.
  23. Smooth coverage but annoying applicator

    Krystle

    I've had lots of battles with foundation on my combination skin.
    In particular, it tends to seperate and oxidise on my nose and chin.
    This foundation hasn't done that for me so far!
    I'm really happy with the coverage, and with the lack of texture. It's really smooth once it's on and it tends to wear quite well if set properly with a powder or strong setting spray.

  24. Oxidises!

    Lola

    I applied this foundation in a thin layer and 3 hours later my face looked orange! It blends flawlessly onto the skin but I wouldn’t repurchase.
  25. Super neutral looking and lasts

    Alex

    I really like this foundation, it’s easy to apply with fingers and looks really natural. It’s really fast to blend too. It also lasts all day and doesn’t come off when I touch my face.
  26. Beautiful

    Nat

    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!

  29. one of my favs

    Sihd

    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
  30. 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...

    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
  34. Holy Grail

    gaby

    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...

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...

    Rachel

    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.
  42. Amazing Coverage

    Nicole

    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

    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.
  47. Great coverage

    Nads39

    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.
  48. By far my fav ❤

    Danielle

    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

    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.
  61. Lovely coverage

    Mary

    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...

    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!!
  63. A good foundation if you want medium-full coverage

    Tessa

    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.
  64. Love

    Absolutely love this foundation it’s a medium-full coverage foundation and doesn't accentuate to dry patches. Highly recommend this foundation

    Jayde

    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...

  66. NICE SATIN FINISH

    SOC

    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.
  67. Really nice foundation

    Toni

    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.
  68. great for oily skin

    Tiffany

    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.
  69. Love this fountain

    Kaz

    Great coverage & lasts all day!
  70. Brush is useless

    Everly

    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.
  71. Looks great and lasts all day

    Sel

    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!
  72. Holy Grail

    Alisha

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

    Tarran

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

    Jordan

    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!
  75. Really good

    Sheridan

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

    Freya

    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.
  77. Full coverage

    Jess

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

    shiraz

    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
  79. Not that great

    Patricia

    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.
  80. Amazing

    Peter

    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.
  81. My go to!

    Rhi

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

    Jenna

    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.
  83. Very nice foundation

    Shannon

    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!
  84. Perfect day and night

    Jess

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

    Kate

    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.
  86. FULL COVERAGE

    KATE

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

    Shan

    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
  88. Full Coverage

    Jayde

    Lovely full coverage foundation. Applies well.
  89. Excellent full- coverage foundation

    Laura

    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.
  90. Fantastic!

    Rachel

    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
  91. Beautiful Natural Glow

    Carly

    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.
  92. Great foundation - Full coverage

    Trina

    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.

    Kate

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

    Jessica

    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.
  95. not good

    Nikki

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

    Abby

    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
  97. Nice

    Jess

    I like the the formula and nice coverage
  98. Pretty Good - Full coverage

    Jade

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

    Jay

    Really great for full coverage looks. Applies easily.
