This is the best foundation I've ever tried and my search for the perfect foundation is finally over! I have tried loads of different foundations including HE, drugstore, bb creams etc. I bought this and the new creamy foundation by dolce & gabbana at the same time because both sounded like I could like them. This one is far far better.
I have combination skin leaning on the dry side, a few broken capillaries and acne scars that need to be covered. At the same time I hate if it looks obvious that I'm wearing foundation. I am 29 years old and a few lines are starting to show, I'm using AHA and retinol products that sometimes leave my skin dried out and flushed. I was always searching for a foundation that covers everything nicely but still looks natural with a semi matte finish AND I wanted it to give me this airbrushed, glowy "model"-look. This foundation does all that! It's amazing. It is also so easy to use. I apply with my fingers and if I didn't have a mirror it would still look good because it never cakes or creases, the colormatch is PERFECT (I am a MAC nw 20 and I use shade number 4). I also like to use mac strobe cream underneath it and I'm pairing it with helena rubinsteins magic concealer (which I also recently discovered and it's just amazing for undereye shadows AND to conceal spots). staying power isn't as long as eg. EL double wear but it looks much better, smoother and it is very easy to add another layer without looking masky. I do have to blot my forehead once or twice a day but that is because I have to moisturize a lot with my dry skin. I recommend this to anyone with dry skin who wants good coverage and a natural finish. the scent is also amazing, it strongly reminds me of my childhood (and it's not that typical by terry rose scent) so if anyone knows what it could be (I think it could be a product my mother used to wear in the 80s), please contact me! I will not buy anything else again and I probably won't even finish the d&g one since the color doesn't match me that well and it dries me out quite a bit, finish is also a bit too matte for my liking.
it is worth the pricetag and I love it to pieces! :-)
