If you have very reactive skin, steer clear. Initially I loved this. It was so light, yet had good coverage. I'd say it's sheer-medium coverage. It won't hide acne marks nor did I expect that from the nature of this foundation. It lasts really well, but it irritated my skin. It started flaking and got redder. I believe this is due to the high alcohol content (3rd ingredient) and fragrance (middle of the list, surprisingly high imo). I understand it's Chanel so fragrance is to be expected, but I didn't have this reaction with Perfection Lumiere (alcohol was farther down the ingredients list too). So alcohol is likely the main problem. I'm wary of it since alcohol prevents your skin from healing so it's not good for those who get acne or are just sensitive to it.

I wish I liked it. However, I found a replacement with EL Invisible Fluid, which is better suited for sensitive skin. 3 lippies for being a good lightweight foundation and I know not everyone's skin will react like mine. 2 off for my skin's reaction. I am B10 for this and 1N1 for EL.
