Reviews at QVC warn it runs light & warm. I’m lighter than most brands & warm; I went with fair: PER-FECT. I’ve worn BE off and on since my mid-20s (going to 40 in a couple weeks), trying to find something better. Tarte is better! I still have oily, trouble skin with large pores so this addresses all of my issues, gently. One “correction” for how it is marketed: it’s *moderate* coverage, not “full.” You will need a concealer.
It applies better with the provided brush than fingers--when I tried with fingers, it settled into pores. When I applied with the brush it gave the promised "airbrush effect" (much to my surprise) & wears all day (I'm up at 4AM and get home well-over 12 hours later).
I use blotting papers--it's not "balancing" enough to control my oil but it doesn’t separate (like BE), streak (like many others), etc. It sits there, doing its job.
