  1. Such a shame Penny – I wonder if the shade were a touch darker/warmer it wouldn't look so aging? although it would still feel tight of course –
    When I say aging instead of looking 29 you look 35 😉

  2. Hi Penny..saw this great review and wanted to tell you I bought the new Sheseido Synchro skin Glow which is the newer one and it is so much better then the one you used. I agree that wasn't a great one for you, but try to get a sample of this one. I also have dry skin and will be 62 in November. I like light coverage and the one I bought is light.

  3. My skin seems to be like yours. I am 48 yrs old, I am still looking for my holy grail foundation. I have spent so much money on 1 hit wonders. Can you do a video on foundation for our type of skin. Over 45, some texture, pores and dry?

  4. I know exactly what you mean, I have dry/normal skin and oily on t zone. Nearly all the foundations do that to me on the chin, except fendi the luminous one that just came out, the channel the one they just renamed.
    I’m trying so hard to get rid of that texture which you can barely see if I don’t wear makeup.

  5. Thanks for the honest review, I have the same exact problem with many foundations! I am also 45 almost 46 and have spent way too much trying to find foundations that don’t do that to my skin

  6. Hello Penny. Thank you for this review. I’m 52 and have texture. I’m sorry it didn’t look good on you. Your skin looked amazing b4 applying this foundation. Love you and your videos!

  7. I’m so glad you reviewed this for us! I almost bought it but was worried it would be too drying for me. Excellent review & you saved me a huge hassle. Thank you!♥️💜

  8. That’s interesting. I was putting it on as your video came up. I’m 67 with dry textured skin. At first I though… it was a big NO. I had the same issues you mentioned. But, as it settled it got better and better. I think the coverage is fantastic. (Finding the right color has certainly been a challenge). I did add the Charlotte Tilbury Flawless filter to the high point of my face. And my final step was to use my Clarins Fix Makeup spray which is very hydrating. It’s a game changer. I highly recommend it as a final step to lock in your makeup and take away any powdery look.

  9. I know when I wear a foundation that doesn’t have enough warmth in it it accentuates any issues that my skin has with a product but how it feels on my skin is the biggest tell! Thank you for sharing this test and taking one for the team!

  10. Thank you for saving me! Because I was thinking of picking this up 😳😬.
    I went for the new ABH…….haven’t had a chance to wear yet but fingers crossed 🤞.
    Have a beautiful day 💕

  11. Don't you hate it when that happens. Great video. Good information. The McGrath Skin Fetish foundation I purchased had a primer also. Can the primer be used with another foundation? Thanks Penny💕

  12. Well Thank you for the review! I sent a synchro back earlier in the year and was wondering if I should try this one! I’ll save my money! Love you gorgeous!!😘😘😘

  13. I watched Tara Lynn's video, and enjoyed it. You both look 10 years younger than you are. You little scamps (that may not be a word). I say it with love🤗

  14. Thank you for the review. I was astounded by the super long list of ingredients! That would count this out for me regardless. Cheers!

  15. I just got this one and hope it doesn't do this same for me. And the KA really made me look old. But I have oily combo and maybe this might be good. Do need to try it. Tara is a trooper to keep it on for 24 hours. Nope not for me. Great honest review Penny!

  16. Honest Respectable Reviews/Demos for Age appropriate Skincare, Foundations n Cosmetics are Highly coveted within this Beauty community.. ❤️thank you Penn for Standing up and being Counted for all the Right reasons, you have Heart 💙🙏🏻💙Blessed

  17. This foundation looked promising, what a bummer . I find most foundations just add to my texture . So it’s the battle of texture or discoloration !

    Return that ish girl !

    Can u do an update on your pre makeup routine? All the essences and serums you’re are currently using ? ( u can do a quick over view on the next Q and A )

  18. TOPIC for FRIDAY Q and A

    How to schedule your facial routines : needling / microdermabrasion/ peels etc for a month or a separate video

    Still want that video so we can do a full facial together !

  19. Hi Penn, I am curious as to what foundations you would recommend for dry skin with hyperpigmentation and texture for the gals in their 40s? 😘

  20. Powder is sooo tricky! Did you know the Becca powder expires in 6 months?? Kind of disappointing considering the price!

  21. It takes so many years to figure out what works for you and your skin. Then you hit your mid-late 40’s/early 50’s and you have to start over and rediscover products all over again. It’s crazy how much your skin changes. I’m so glad you recognized the problems with that foundation so quickly. I hope you return it. Anything that ages me goes back. Full stop. ❤️❤️❤️

  22. Always love an honest review. I’m about to turn 45… and I’m obsessed with bare minerals barepro. I’m not dry, but I look radiant and flawless. It last allll day. Have you tried it?

  23. Thank you so much for doing this video! You saved me a waste of time and money! I have dry/sensitive skin and cannot imagine wearing one that draws up and feels tight! Thank you again!

  24. Thank you for this honest and detailed review. I have dry to normal skin with the same pore and under eye texture you desribe so this foundation will be a pass for me. I have been using the Shiseido Radiant Lifting foundation in I01 and I20 for several years and love it. Medium to full coverage, your choice. Lasts all day with a perfect finish. Not dewy but certainly not matte. I powder mid day with CT compact. Love your channel!

  25. Very interesting. Of all the foundations you have tried which would you recommend for a 64 year old skin with the orange peel texture issues you described. In the past I have used Dior, and love it, but it is probably 15 years since I bought a new makeup so really lost touch. I would welcome your recommendation though, Thnak You. 💐💐

  26. Hello I live in Sweden and I cannot order the serum you recommended when doing microneedling: Cos The BAHA 100% Pure Hyaluronic Acid.
    I have found another serum and wonder if you can help me with the label of contents and if it is good to use:
    0.2% Hyaluronic Acid Serum Manufacturer The Organic Pharmacy ingredients: Hamamelis Virginiana Water, Glycerin, Sodium Lactate, Aqua (Water), Citrus Grandis Peel Oil, Algin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Dehydroacetic Acid, Benzyl Alcohol, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Xanthan Gum, Sorbic Acid, Limonene, Citral, Linalool, Hyaluronic Acid , Grapefruit Oil, Witch Hazel.

    Thanks for the help! You are the best!

  27. Hmmmm🤔 the light shade can make it look dry but, i don't believe is all the issue with this foundation…i can't imagine what would cause the texture🤔bummer.

  28. This is so interesting because I am over 50 with textured skin and I love this foundation. I applied it over replenix ultimatte sunscreen, so maybe that made the difference. But I also wanted to tell you that I got the new Fenty hydrating long wearing foundation and I love it too…I was torn between the two, so I put a thin layer of the Fenty first, and then the Shiseido on top and that was magic!!! Beautiful finish, and long lasting. Just thought I’d share…😎. Love watching your channel!!!💗💗💗

  29. I'm glad you did this review Penn. I was thinking of trying it. I didn't like it at all on you and I've actually never NOT liked a foundation on you!! I'm 55 and this would be a disaster on me 👎👎

  30. I am a recent subscriber & I was wondering what you do for your under eye fine lines & texture. You have beautiful skin.

  31. I have the Becca Powder and haven't used it yet, so hopefully, I don't have that with any of my foundations. Sometimes I notice when the foundation has time to set it can look better than it did before when you first applied it. Thanks for sharing, have a good week. xoxo 😘🙂

  32. I tried Shisedo Synchro skin foundation a couple of years ago (the original formula) and your review has shown that the new formula is exactly the same just with a new name.

  33. Hi Penny I just wanted to say thank you for your lovely videos I very much love watching you you are so real and so detailed and you always give honest answers and explain everything thoroughly I'm very grateful please forgive misprints but I have to dictate into microphone because I'm registered blind

    Could you possibly tell me which of the the doctor pens which are wireless you would recommend I know you said you were going to do a video on X5w.. as I really want to know which is the best one to buy why I don't want to make a mistake and I think a rechargeable is best for me I would like to know which is the best results between the XR are sorry that was supposed to say X5 w and the A6 please thank you in advance so very much looking forward to seeing the video I know you were going to compare new paragraph thanks again for all your help and advice on your videos I will continue to watch you always warmest wishes and blessings to you xxx🙏💕💕you Liz in liverpool UK

  34. My favorite Japanese foundation is the Koh Gen Do Aqua foundation. I'm almost 50 and it doesn't age me… I get compliments when I wear this foundation

  35. Yes girl! I didn't know I had texture that came out with this foundation! Such a bummer that it didn't work out for us, but I have too many that look SO much better; I can't justify keeping this one.

  36. I thank you for this review. I was hoping it would work for me but, since it emphasizes texture, I will try the new Chanel foundation.

  37. Thank you so much for this! I know this would work the same on my face as yours. Saved me $$! Grateful for youtubers like you!🤗

  38. Hi Penny I was just wondering I have watched your micro needling video several times and I was thinking to myself is this equivalent to going to an aesthetician or doctor to get micro needling? Can’t wait to hear from you?

  39. Friday Q&A query: #1 What is the difference between growth factors and stem cells?

    #2 Does hair actually TURN gray, or does it just grow in gray?

  40. i use(d) the original synchro skin long lasting which is now discontinued and replaced with this. from what i understand the finish/formula is very similar. from 2 years of using the original i have discovered that too much skincare and emollient hydrating products undernearth will break the foundation down. a simple moisturizer is all i use and i get very good results.

  41. Agree, the foundation is not for you. You always look beautiful and this foundation masks your face. Always look forward to your reviews. Bought the Zelens Youth Glow because of you and love it! Just bought the Surratt Dew Drops and so far loving it. Be great to see you do a review on it. Light coverage yet really lovely.😘

  42. I never liked this foundation. I bought this years ago and hated how it looked. Looks like a new reformulation or updated bottle? Thanks for the review Penny ❤️

  43. Thank you so much for getting straight to it in your video! Your video was so complete & covered everything I was wondering about

  44. Thank you for the review, I'm in the same boat skin-wise (aging with texture) so this was an excellent review. Esp the 'its not comfortable' feeling. Thank you for saving me the time and money!

  45. Hi, This is my 1st time at your channel. The thumbnail got my attention. I had just watched Tati's review of this foundation, which she loved, so I thought I would get a second opinion.
    It was meant to be that I clicked on your video. I am 65 I am blessed to have good skin but I have large pores on my nose and fine lines around my mouth and eyes.
    The last thing I want is for a foundation to accentuate my aging skin. Thank you for your honesty. I look forward to following you and getting to know you🥰

  46. Subscribing because i also have dry and dehydrated skin. Looking forward to watching all of your related videos 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

  47. Thanks for your honest and thorough review! I bought the foundation and did not love how it wore off on my face (emphasized all pores and skin texture) and was curious to see if anyone had similar issues. I thought that it was a heavy looking foundation as well and not "glowy" enough for my liking. On the other hand it had great coverage but I will stick to my Face & Body foundation from MAC and add concealer where I need instead to build up coverage. I am glad to see that I am not the only one who did not like this product! ☺️

  48. Excellent review!! I appreciate the true close-up, I'm so on the fence now with this foundation, the reviews are polarizing. I will definitely get a sample of this first and try it out for myself. Looking forward to more reviews from you!

  49. I just ordered this today. I'm 57 and I have texture, but I also have oily skin. It will be interesting to see how this works on me. My sunscreens also tend to make my skin shinny / tacky, wonder if that will make a difference. I'll hold on to my receipt!! 🙂 Thanks for your review.

  50. Thanks so much for this review. Was about to get it then decided to search reviews. Yours is the most helpful as we have similar skin types.

  51. I have never seen your videos before but I'm glad I came across this one! I just ordered Shiseido foundation and I don't think I will even try it based on your wear test. I also have dry skin with texture and the last thing I need is for that to be more noticeable. Please continue to give an honest review regardless of whether it comes across as negative…women like me will thank you!!

  52. I love this foundation, although it is a tad light. I am 53 with normal to dry skin. I prep my skin really well and add a hydrating primer. It lasts and looks great for me all day. I’m sorry that it didn’t work for you.

  53. Thank you, you have saved me $$$, shine & emphasized pores is the last thing i need! What is your best foundation that doesn't do this?🙄😊

  54. I am so glad I saw this, I am close to your age with dry dry dry skin, because I live in AZ. I am a new subscriber so glad I found you!

  55. I too have dry & dehydrated skin. When I watched this video, the very first thing I noticed was how dry & dehydrated your skin looked. I can't wait to see your next video on which foundations make you your skin look better. I'll definitely be skipping this foundation altogether. Thank you for this review.
