Love the look

I am the lucky one. I attended one of Motives hand on workshop first before I bought my foundation (the workshop is free and fun). The Motives trainer is very friendly and helpful. She picked the right colour for me and I just love the finish look. It's so natural and flawless looking. I also love one of the ingredient in this tube: "Genseng" - One of the most expensive herbal medicine I know ! I feel I am looking great and doing facial at the same time !!

What is my Motives colour if I wear MAC NC45?

I haven't bought the product because I don't want to get the wrong colour and I hope it's doesn't leave a white tint like most Motives foundation. Buying Fenty was such an awesome experience because Fenty tells you which Fenty colour matches your colour in other make up brand. This is super smart because when buying online, you can't go by the colour on the screen. Motives should do the same. Let us pick our Motives colours which match other makeup brand.

I like the way the foundation feels and covers, but I'm having a hard time getting the right shade from the pictures.

Beautiful even on combination/oily skin

I love this foundation because it gives you that soft-focus glow without the glossy high-shine even on my combination/oily skin. Used in conjunction w/ the complexion perfection primer, this foundation stays on all-day, true to color and does NOT slip and slide. The Formulation is buttery soft and applies evenly regardless of whether I use a brush, sponge or fingertips! It is not heavy at all but rather weightless on the skin. A little bit goes a long way and I don't even have to use a concealer to cover my hyper-pigmentation from my acne scars! Great job with this new foundation MOTIVES! Can't wait for more shades to come out!
