I've been a member of Makeupalley for over 7 yrs now and have never posted a review.... I just used it for my knowledge of skincare, and yes, makeup. I, being a guy, wear makeup to cover up purple under eyes, acne scars, and so on.... My challenge? to find and use makeup that makes me look flawless wihtout the hint of clue that I'm wearing it..... so HUGE challenge! :) a little history.... I'm combo skin... generally oily in the summer and combo dry in the winter. Due to my acne treatments and nightly BHA exfoliations my face is a full shade lighter than my body so major dilema there heheh... lately I had been using MAC's Studiofix powder in NC25... which was a good match... a happy medium between my face and neck area.... could of been a little bit more yellow though (esp when it would oxidize) The reason for the switch... studiofix=no coverage... & accentuated dry patches which I wasn't too eager to put more moisturizer on..... So I ordered the HD foundation in 118 (consulting with sephora rep, recomended this) and I did also buy the HD Powder... I apply it with my MAC 187 brush.... and OH MY GOD!!!... the finished and blending is more than amazing!..... stipple it on and then in circular motion blend it all in.... I didn't even apply on my neck... I just took what was left over my brush and brushed it lightly and a perfect match.... Now keep in mind that I'm a guy and I usually have a 5 oclock shadow at noon ! :) and it's didn't even settle or pool in the bearded area!!! which is why I've always strayed from liquid.... I then applied my regular concealors, countouring powder, and bronzer... then to finish with the HD powder..... perfect!... now it's only been a couple of days of wearing so abviously it's new... and the real deal will be if it breaks me out.... if it doesn't (and I'll update if it does) it'll be a constant HG!!!! I am so excited about this product that I just felt like reviewing after 6 yrs of being on here :) I ordered 117 as well to come to see if it's just a little bit lighter and more yellow.... then I'll make a decision as to which matches best and return one... or keep them both and one might be summer and the other winter! :) Hope this review was helpful.... if you have any questions... just msg me
