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.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by EmmyG Can't live without it
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!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by katibop great product
I've been using this foundation for, oh, maybe seven years now. There's a nice variety of shades to choose from, and goes on smooth and consistent--never cakey or dry. My look, overall, is pretty natural and most people have been surprised I'm wearing anything at all! I'm a big fan of the autoship option as well, so I can have a new bottle delievered every six weeks or so!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by RioBanana Foundation of my choice for 10+ years!!!
This foundation is great because it makes me look very natural! With this foundation, I don't even need to use concealer! It covers just the right amount to look natural and I love that it won't get creased up in fine lines! I just shake the bottle a few times and use what's in the cap with my brush! Usually that's all I need to cover my face unless I'm going for a full coverage look! A little really goes a long way!
I have been using origins products for over 17 years and this is my favorite foundation! I did try other cosmetics both high end and drugstore brands but the products from origins are always so gentle they don't even come close!!!
