The Stay Tuned foundation seemed to be a good catch: oil-free, and formulated without all of those pesky ingredients Origins always omits. After giving this product a good effort, I am back to searching for a new foundation.
The color seems to match well, but it does absolutely nothing as far as coverage (a good concealer is mandatory if you wish to wear this foundation), the wearability is poor (it seems to disappear as the day progresses - revealing patches of color - or it rubs and runs too easily), and it makes my skin looks shiny and greasy from the moment I apply it (even if I cut back on the serum or moisturizer after cleansing and toning - which defeats the purpose of the Origins Daily Ritual). I have to load up on the powder after applying the foundation, and even though I have combination skin, I have to touch up with powder almost every hour to avoid having a shiny forehead and chin.
I am not so sure what is so 'balancing' about this make-up, because it does nothing for 'oil-blotting' (as the product description claims) or 'balancing.' This product certainly does not create 'all-day' harmony. I'm lucky if I can get three minutes of ho-hum harmony before Stay Tuned leaves my face looking like a greasy, patchy, embarrassing mess.

Over the last year I have, in increments, replaced my drugstore face products with Origins. I started with this foundation and an Origins moisturizer (I'm now using Dr. Weil's mushroom moisturizer). There has been a significant improvement in my face. In particular, I am not breaking out nearly as often.
Last month I decided to skip ordering Stay Tuned foundation -- because I didn't have enough time to wait for it to ship and arrive. So I purchased my old drugstore foundation. What a mistake! After 2 weeks my skin was back to it's usual bad behavior. Long story short, Stay Tuned is the foundation of my face routine every morning (pun intended). Won't go without it ever again!

I used Stay Tuned foundation for many, many years before the Plantscription foundation came out. Even tho I have positive things to say about the Plantscitption foundation I am glad I went back to Stay Tuned. I had forgotten how light and long lasting Stay Tuned was. Not only that but the colors work better for my skin tone. The issue I have with PS is that I had a very hard finding a color that matches my tone.
I am happy using Stay Tuned and will stick with it, I am using the color Bare. It is natural looking, light weight foundation. I am using the All or Nothing power to set it. The thing I would suggest is possibly having a pump so it does not get so messy or pour out too much.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by KeepItSimple I love it, but...
The color is great for my skin and it is very light weight. It doesn't make me breakout, which is fantastic! I have been using this foundation for a year and a half and can't find another that is better. I have tried other high end foundations and I always come back to this. There are a couple things I don't like. The foundation doesn't last all day. I would say you get 6 maybe 8 hours of wear max and that is pushing it. In the winter I notice that the foundation will cling to dry spots on my face. Finally, the last thing I don't like is that there isn't a pump. Please, please, please add a pump or let me purchase it as an extra.
