The packaging is ingenious as it is in pump form, therefore you dont have to get your fingers all gross and sticky, as they do in foundations without a pump. It is also clear, so you can keep track of how much is left and isnt a guessing game where youre stuck realizing you have none left while getting ready to go out. Thats never fun. I think its aesthetically pleasing, although the metal cap can get finger prints on it really easily, which is kind of a pet peeve of mine. But, otherwise, Im a fan! I use the Good Karma Optical Blurring brush ($24), which allows me to blend the foundation flawlessly onto my face and into my jawline, around the nose, and the hairline. Woo! The texture of the foundation is a little runny but I personally pump it onto the Optical Blurring brush and it doesnt drip off. Once applied, its extremely light weight and provides light to medium coverage; a little more than a tinted moisturizer but less than a full coverage foundation. Ive found that layering the foundation can add more coverage to problem areas. It helps to even out skin tones and reduce redness around the nose and chin. Although Urban Decay boasts that it provides a demi-matte coverage, Im a little oiler, especially on the T-Zone so it started to get a little shiny by mid-day. If youre oilier or have combination skin, I would recommend a mattifying primer or powder to help that shine thatll start peeking through throughout the day. Because of the light coverage, I wouldnt use this foundation for going out at night or for when I want a full coverage, but its the perfect foundation for every day. The foundation comes in 18 shades the 0.5′s being for those with golden undertones and the 1′s for those with pink undertones. I am currently using shade 7.0: it applies a little lighter than my skin tone but oxidizes once applied so it blends into my skin perfectly. It does not contain SPF so its crucial for you to apply sunscreen before using this foundation! Overall, Im a fan of this foundation and will continue using it as an every day foundation.
