I apologize in advance for the novel :) I have been so excited to write this review, but have waited a while to get a good grasp on all that this foundation is. Background on me: Im NW50 and have VERY oily skin. So oily that I actually can see little beads of oil form my nose as the day goes on. Gross, but true story I know. I wanted a foundation that was long wearing, yet looks very natural, controls oil, and was medium to full coverage. Its hard as a WOC with a dark complexion to find a foundation match. Foundations gearted towards us either make us look very ashy and gray, or they are waaaaayyyy too red and you end up looking like an Oompa Loompa. I sadly have fallen victim to both kinds. So needless to say I was extremly excited when I learned this foundation was coming out. First, the color range is phenomenal. There is something here truly for everyone. I matched myself to Suede-550 C. At first I was concerned with the yellow in this foundation; that it would make me look ashy, but it was just the opposite. I applied it, and it literally disappeared into my skin, just like magic. In all lights, this foundation looks so natural, yet so perfect. I am truly in awe. I've never had a foundation match me as well as this one does. EVER! The finish I would say is not quite matte, but not quite satin either, but somewhere in between. Personally I love the finish. As for the wear, I work 12 hour shifts in the ER. Usually with any other foundation I will have to blot every hour or so. With this, SIX HOURS goes by before I have to blot. For me this an amazing acheivement. After the complete 12 hours, the foundation still looks great. It starts to break down a tad on my nose but thats it. I am truly in love with this foundation. Out of the multitudes that Ive gone through (MAC, BE, Revlon, MUFE, Clinique, and others) this hands down is the best! $50 is steep for me to pay for a foundation; but sometimes in life you get what you pay for. This is one of those times. I'm in love and this has a permanant place in my collection. I never want to be without it <3
