My usual stick foundation is a little pricey, so I decided to try this as a cheaper alternative. I'm on the fence in terms of buying it again as I'm used to Lancôme Teint Idol and this is not in the same league by far. However, you get what you pay for, so here it goes....I had to have a friend pick this up at her CVS as this brand is not available at the CVS's near my home and work. It costs $11.60 with tax, which is cheaper than buying on their website and paying for shipping. The packaging is no frills yet functional. It required two applications to get a decent full coverage. It does not go on as smoothly as I expected and it takes a little more effort to blend than I'm used to. Use good light. I got the Rich Caramel as this is the color match suggested by several Internet searches. It has more yellow than I want, but it is still useable. It does not oxidize on me. This makeup transfers onto EVERYTHING despite a generous dose of setting spray. It requires touchups every few hours as it never really set. It seeps into the pores and magnifies the fine lines. In fairness, I didn't use a primer, only MAC Strobe Cream for luminance. It still had a matte finish. This purchase is going back to the store.

I forgot to set it before I left for the day so it got oily fast and I have oily skin. I’m not sure if this would hold up throughout the day even if I did set it. Check out my full review here (YouTube: Mary LeMuse)

I like this more than some of my higher end foundations. Great natural skin like coverage, mousse like consistency, great staying power, photographs like a dream! I purchased truly topaz and Nutmeg. This will become a personal favorite I already know. With the use of primer and setting with powder, this stays put.

After a very long search trying to find the perfect powder for my combo skin i finally hit gold! This powder is finely milled soft and just deluxe. I got the recommendation from youtuber Jakie Aina and so glad that i took her advice. prior to this i tried clinique, elizabeth arden,mac & a few more. We have very limited brands here in South Africa.I got the colour Neutral light and assumed it would be too light and ashy but it is actually perfect. This powder lasts all daykeeping you looking fresh and put together. my undereye concealer goes nowhere. Just a quick note..you will look flat. I havent checked on flashback as yet. I will definitley purchase again. I dont fancy packaging much i prefer the elizabeth arden twist style packaging.

This along with my black radiance primer keeps my makeup looking good for the day. I notice this powder blurs all my pores and surface imperfections. It's like a filter! My photos are flawless and it keeps me matte without looking like a ghost. I can also touch up in the day with no cake face. This is a game changer. What was I doing with my life?
