So far I like this foundation. It is light, weightless, glowy, and smooth. I'd say it's... youthful looking. Good coverage for a foundation that isn't heavy.
I bought this because I really liked the medium wear foundation, but felt that it looked a bit too cakey on my skin, so I wanted to try something different.
It is a bit.. glimmery, so I don't suppose it would be a great photo makeup. It doesn't contain SPF, either, which could be either a pro or a con. I'm sensitive to most SPF ingredients, so for me this was good.
I would definitely encourage buying a primer, setting powder, or a very good concealer. The odd thing is that the finish seems to hold, but the coverage does not. It gets feeling a little melty - something I've noticed about other MK foundations. Perhaps the matte version is better lasting. I do like the finish of this quite a bit - dewy but not glittery. It seems to take a lot more product to cover my face than I would prefer.
I think I've used this long enough to make a final conclusion:
Look: Beautiful and glowy
Staying power: Lacking - biggest bummer
Transfer: Yes, very easily
Feel: Light and smooth
Hydrating/drying: Hydrating, moisturizing
Coverage: Light, best worn medium.. & it can be layered, to full.
Packaging: Not too bad, easy to control - but slightly unsanitary.
*Break-outs? SLIM - this is the selling point for me. Maybe it's a fluke, but I've been using this a week or so and I haven't noticed any huge breakouts. A few clogged pores here and there, but everything else I've ever used, from high end to low end, to sensitive skin specialty products, have all made my face explode. I'm sticking to this until I find my HG. I may purchase matte as well, in hopes that it will last a little longer.
