Really nice, always felt a bit streaky though.
I haven't used this foundation in a while, so I might be missing some tricks.
Overall, it was a really nice foundation, and I actually liked the brush tht came with it. The shade I used helped counteract some of the redness in my face nicely and I enjoyed wearing it. However, I found that it occasionally veered into patchy or streaky finishes, which was disappointing, and the compact loosened quickly.

Product is amazing
My first time buying an Urban Decay product and I absolutely love this product. Not only is it easy to apply with the brush it comes with, but it goes on so light and smooth on my skin. It automatically hides all redness on my face and makes me look like I'm not wearing any makeup. It blends well with my skin tone and doesn't have one of those funky smells some foundations have. I love it. :)

An Overall Good Cream to Powder Base
This product is quick and easy to use and a little goes a long way. Light enough for everyday use (light to medium coverage) However, if you have oily to oily/combo skin I recommend using a skin primer like De-slick spray or gel. Compact is super cute and the brush is a little flimsy but does the job, but love that the brush and product all fit nicely in the compact easy to travel with.

I have a very difficult time finding foundation that isn't heavy and that comes on easily. This product not only conceals and creates even skintone but it feels very light. I don't feel like I'm wearing heavy makeup! Even though it is cream to powder, during the summer I still put a little powder over it only because my t-zones can get a bit oily (in general not because of the makeup).

Best foundation ever
I don't like heavy coverage, but I'm not 16 anymore either, so there are definitely things i need to cover up and even out! I'm so happy with this makeup, it goes on very easily, covers what it needs to cover but doesn't look like caked on. The brush is awesome, too - makeup goes on smooth and I'm not stuck with foundation all over my hands. Easily lasts all day, as well.

SMOOTH & CREAMY!!
I am so in love! This is my first UD purchase and it was worth every single penny! I'm very pale so it's VERY difficult for me to find makeup that matches my skin tone, this makeup in the shade fate matches perfectly! It covers up any flaws and leaves my skin feeling smooth without having to apply a ton of makeup! I would recommend this to everyone I know! :]

So thankful for UD!
I don't know where to start! I have had issues with Roseca for years now and I haven't been able to find a product to reduce the redness or cover the redness until now!
I barely have to use any of my Surreal Skin and within seconds I have a photo finish face. Yay!
Thank you soooo much Urban Decay for giving me the confidence to show my face again. :D

Save your money, drugstore foundation is better than this
I've been looking for the perfect makeup for years. After reading the reviews for this foundation I was pretty excited, thinking that maybe this would be a good match for me.
I have combination skin with oily spots in my t-zone and chin. I wanted something that was long lasting, would cover a few acne scars, and would even out the skin tone, i.e. dark circles, slight redness. Is this asking to much?
This foundation goes on nice enough,and the compact is really cute though I'm not a big fan of the brush.
My problem is that it was worn off in 2hrs, looking cake-y in some places and bare in others!!
Maybe I didn't apply it the right way or something???
I used the pore perfecting primer, a concealer, the foundation, and the razor sharp finishing powder to set it.
Whatever the case may be, I was disappointed in this product and wish I had spent my money on something better.
Using Hard Candy Just Face It all in one for now, and it works 5x better than the Surreal Skin

Best Foundation Yet!
I love this foundation. My skin has never looked so good! I use the Guardian Angel to prep my skin and the compact, and it goes on smooth and even and doesn't get cakey or accent in my wrinkles. Most foundations make my skin breakout, but I've never had any problems with this one. I only wish the compact lasted longer!

Best Foundation I've Ever Used
I LOVE this foundation. It applies so easily, it's lightweight, and doesn't make my oily skin feel more oily. I definitely feel like I've found a winner with this foundation. I'm still trying to get used to applying with the brush, but with a little practice, I'm sure I'll be used to it in no time!

The cream foundation is really smooth, you can build it up if you don't want to use concealer. pretty long lasting. Dream is my shade, im really glad it matches perfectly: Being asian its really hard to find a match but im glad i found Dream. love this product i would most definitly recomend it :]

Absolutely loved it!
I've been floating around different products looking for the right powder formula to compliment my Latina tone and honestly I just love the ease of Urban Decay's Surreal Skin in Trance. It's seriously easy to apply and it doesn't run when I'm working out at the gym so I can fake a pretty glow!

this foundation is INCREDIBLE!! it's easy to apply and easy for travel since it can't spill. it makes my skin look airbrushed, flawless and perfect! seriously i was around looking like someone photoshopped my face! it's so light i don't even feel like i have any makeup on. This one is a must!

My new go-to foundation!
I adore this. Its a little pricey for the amount in the pan, but I love it. The foundation brush I use gives me an air brushed, flawless finish. Excellent build-able coverage. I use a finishing powder over it for a more matte look (Im not fan of natural finish). Overall, I love this. Matches my skin great. Id say there is more of a yellow undertone to the colors (which I need personally). Doesnt last more than 8hrs (which is ok for the work day) but I still cant say enough about this great new product!

g r e a t product!
I love this product. It's actually one that matches my skin. All the other products I've tried are either too pink, too orange or just don't match my skin color. It makes my skin feel great and has great coverage. I have dry skin with acne and it works great.

This is a wonderful cream foundation! It feels light but provides good coverage and lasts all day! I would recommend exfoliating before use to get the best look because for me at least, it enhances any dryness or flakiness i might have.
February 28, 2012
Great coverage without looking caked on. Brush included provides easy, even application. Caught my teenage daughter using mine! Have had my compact for almost 2 months and may last me another month!
February 27, 2012
I recommend this product to anyone!
I love the cream to powder foundation. It's so easy to apply and feels wonderful on the face. If you like the cream to powder makeup then this is the product for you! You will love it!

I have tried other cream foundations and this is the one .i have very oily sensative skin and with this I dont break out and i only apply once a day.
November 3, 2011
One of my favorites
I'm not a fan of cream to powder foundations, but I love this. It provides excellant coverage and hasn't broken my sensitive skin out once.
February 26, 2012
I haven't used foundation since I was twelve and trying to hid zits, but the foundation ended up causing me to break out more. Ten years later and I'm trying again since my skin is much better. I just wanted to look like I had a little glow and a smooth, even tone. This foundation is awesome; it does all the above things. I have fair skin and auburn hair and "Illusion" still wasn't too dark for me. It's very lightweight.
The only negatives are that you really need to moisturize before applying so then you don't have darker and more noticeable dry spots. Secondly, the brush isn't that great. It's fine for getting the foundation on your face, but I would definitely have another brush to blend it.
No huge issues. Just moisturize, apply the foundation in your shade, and blend with a better brush. Voila. Beautiful.

I got this as an early Valentine's Day present from my fiance and I am in LOVE! It goes on so smoothly and the coverage is fantastic!
February 6, 2012
amazing! matches my skin tone perfectly & blends so well with a bronzer. it leaves my skin looking so soft & beautiful!!
February 24, 2012
Ive tried all kinds of powders and foundations thank god i found this one
March 1, 2012
simple and easy to use.
What I liked about this product is that it really did go from cream to powder. It truly does what it promises it'll do. Buildable coverage for the days you need it, and yet light enough for the days you're wanting a nautral look. I have oily skin and this product works well on me. I mean I still had to use blotting paper throughout the day, but if you're looking for a foundation coverage with a powder weight THIS IS DEFF the product to try out!
February 19, 2012
Absolutely AMAZING, except for....
I love love love this product, so much. It was the first foundation to match my skin tone perfectly, and it stays on all day. It comes with an application brush that a lot of people say they don't like using, but I actually did.
Some down-sides to this is that on some days, it looked cakey, and obvious that I was wearing it. Also, you don't really get a lot of product.
But honestly, I'd still buy it again. I used every single bit of it up!!

First time buying this product i liked the fact that it wasnt drying it left my skin moisty. What i didnt like very much was that it didnt give me the coverage i wanted. I have lupus so i have a butterfly rash right across my checpeks and i had to apply a tad extra to my cheeks. But it u dont have any red spots i would so recommend its great goes on smoothly and feels great. Doesnt dry out my skin blends well with my bronzer and blush

I LOVE the case this comes in. The graphics on the lid are gorgeous, and I greatly appreciate the way it flips up to reveal the concealed brush. The makeup is so light and airy it feels like you are wearing nothing at all. The only downside is it clings to impurities; aka dry skin. I have combination skin, so if you have any dry areas, be sure to exfoliate the area thoroughly and apply a good moisturizer before using this.

Wonderful new foundation!
I was looking for a new foundation and decided to try this. It is absolutely incredible! It can easily be applied with the brush it comes with or even your fingers! Because it starts off as creamy, it's very easy to apply to your skin and blend it. The finish is very natural and smooth once it tries. Since it's you can build up the coverage, you can apply it over blemishes, and it still looks smooth and very natural!
February 14, 2012
Looks great, feels great, long lasting, and amazing coverage!
This product went so good on my skin! It has the coverage I need but doesnt cake. Plus the design on the lid just looks beautiful! I put it on before I went to school and I had been so busy that day I never once did a touch up . I got home and it still looked like it was just put on! It kept my eyeshadow and blush in place too. Though I advise using a different makeup brush then the one givin, or a sponge.
