I bought this is Light which is a great match for me. Sometimes I use my fingers to apply, sometimes a flat top brush. Either way, it looks airbrushed & really nice. BUT it does not last 12 hours on me; after about 6 hours it looks cakey and I can see redness around my cheeks and around my nose. I don't mind doing minimal touch-ups but it does look cakey when I do. This is a bit expensive for me and if it's not lasting through my entire day, it's no good for me.
