I can't agree with calling this makeup 'creamy'. To me creamy would be mean you could apply it with your fingertips and it would glide on smoothly. That's definitely not the case here.I have, however, found a solution that works well. I moisten a makeup sponge (non-latex of course) with a bit of water and then apply. This really helps smooth the makeup evenly over the skin. Pat the sponge over spots that need extra coverage, tamping the makeup into the skin.This technique is working well and gives me great coverage.

the best I have ever used. I have combination oily and dry skin and all other makeups seem to look flakey. Not this one.

It goes on nicely and blends with my coloring, and I'm glad that it has so many natural ingredients

I have been using the Emani pressed mineral powder makeup. I decided to try this product instead. I have oily skin and this product seemed to soak in before I could get it spread out on my skin. My 16 year old daughter thought it showed every pore in my face! I will definitely go back to my beloved Emani!

Love the creamy texture and how it doesn't break down into little balls when used over a moisturizer as other products do. The shade is a tad too light for me though.

This makeup is a little thick, but I just wet my hands then use a dab to spread evenly. The coverage is excellent! It smells good and feels great on!

Good coverage. This is the second time that I have ordered this make-up from Isabella.

I actually like this make-up, but have come to the realization that a creamy foundation isn't for me. Didn't want to give it one star rating, as this really is a decent product, just not for me.

The color looks completely natural. I did have to cut it with my own face cream. It just may be the altitude that makes it thicker.

Don't love it, don't like it. Very drying.

I really enjoy having a trustworthy make up product that is safe for my skin. The bottle lasts a long time too.

This was my only disappointing purchase. This makeup is not "creamy." It is hard to blend so I only use on a very small area. I've tried mixing it with a creme or even aloe but results were not good.

Wonderful natural makeup. I don't actually use makeup every day because my lifestyle - country, many animals, often a bit grubby - doesn't call for it, but when I do this is the one! Excellent quality.

Used this make-up once and it covered well and didn't have to use much. But it seemed to sort of slide off my face by the middle of the day and settle around my nose and felt very heavy. The good news is I was able to give it to my daughter and she likes the make-up, Of course she is also 30 years younger than I am!

When used with a moisturizer works great

I like the coverage a lot but prefer the smell and feel of another brand better.

I LOVE this makeup. Just wish it were in an easier container, I waste too much with this one.

I like this foundation, but the only down side is that it dries quickly, not giving me enough time to blend a little more in those tough spots. Nice that it doesn't have a fragrance!

Needs to be applied right after moisturizer so it will spread easily. Would be even better if it had sunscreen in it.

This make-up offers coverage that is welcome without the "feel" of the usual heaviness of make-up. Its as if one is not wearing make-up at all. One thing that's missing is SPF. Perhaps the manufacturer could look into that. It would make the morning ritual a bit more efficient; that is, it would save time when one is rushing to be out the door in a timely fashion.

I like this make up! Stays nice all day.

I've enjoyed what I've purchased from here before. This product has a good list of ingredients and I really like the fact that it wasn't tested on animals but it was hard to apply and felt like it was clogging my pores. I've read of a mineral make-up that isn't tested on animals either and plan on trying that instead.

Great, natural foundation with fantastic color. The only drawback is is dries quickly, so beware you need to smooth it into your skin ASAP.

I have been looking for a natural creamy foundation for a long time, so I was excited when I saw this in your catalog. It is very thick, and a little goes a really long way. I only use a pea size amount for my whole face because I find that if I use too much or if I don't rub it in really well it can look streaky or cakey. Even though I only use such a small amount, the coverage is quite good. The nude color is pretty neutral not too pink and not too yellow so it will probably work for most fair skin colors, especially if you use a small enough amount that your own skin color will just blend in. And if you wanted a lighter coverage, you could probably use a dot of this to make your own tinted moisturizer. Overall a nice pick from Isabella Catalog!

First time I have been disappointed with one of Isabella's products. This dries when it hits your skin and is hard to blend. Other sites list this foundation as matte finish and for normal to oily skin; mine is dry and even moisturizer doesn't help this to blend. And, yes, it is the same foundation . . .

Love this makeup, goes on well, doesn't cause my skin to rebel and get flaky. Because it's natural, if you laugh 'til you cry, you will need to reapply. Once I get used to doing this, maybe I'll rate it 5.

Disliked this product. Turned orange and was very chalky by end of day.

I love the idea of a creamy foundation, but this one disappointed me. For one thing, I broke out after wearing it for one day for another, it didn't cover age spots or rosacea well enough to justify wearing it. I'll be returning this.
