I bought this foundation after years of wearing mineral powder foundation. My skin has been very dry this winter so I thought the switch would help camouflage the dry patches around my nose. For $15 I thought it was a little pricey for a drugstore formula but the reviews on here made it look like a decent buy. I'm very pale and by default I choose the lightest of most foundation lines. Light Ivory (143, I think) matched my skin seamlessly which is already an achievement. I really like the pump dispenser and the packaging is appealing. I also really like that the formula includes hyaluronic acid, retinol a, and vitamin c -- I'm only 22, but those ingredients are good for your skin regardless of age. The SPF factor was also a big selling point for me. Unfortunately I found that the formula was too quick to dry (I will try the wetbrush & stipple methods later) and I found myself using quite a bit of it in order to apply it evenly. The coverage is very light and breathable so if you want medium-heavy coverage this is not the foundation for you. It evened out my skintone and helped dull the slight redness of my cheeks. I will definitely keep this one around and will mostly likely use it everyday when the weather warms up.
