UPDATE - so I've been using this for quite some time and well, I have to ditch it. It's now magnifying my lines and pores. Not good. :( I've been using this for over a month now and am IN LOVE. I decided to switch to liquid from EDM for 3 reasons: 1 - EDM discontinued their Intensive formula, which meant I had nothing but the Matte formula, which required multiple layers just to get decent coverage. Intensive only needed 1 layer. 2 - I would need to buy 3 different shades of EDM in order to get a shade match. At $12 each shade, that was $36 - granted, I would end up with 3 large containers of foundation that would last me about 6 months but I digress. 3 - I've begun to notice that the powder foundation settles in to my lines & creases. Not a good look, at all. In fact, it's accentuating them! GAH! Now on to my review - I got medium beige and it is perfect match. At first, I thought it would be too warm and maybe too dark but NOPE, not at all. It's perfect in natural sunlight, where you get the REAL results. I love the pump dispenser - makes it much easier to pump right on to my MAC 190 foundation brush. The product does what it says and I do not need a concealer. I am able to cover any stubborn spots with a small drop of the foundation. It dries to a matte finish but doesn't accentuate my lines. It actually softens them a bit. I will say that the product dries quick, so I have to work fast to make sure it's blended well, but that's not a huge issue for me. I didn't use a powder to set it because it doesn't need it. The price is awesome - $10 at Target and I believe Ulta is having a 50% off sale on all CG products, so you may be able to get it for less there (Ulta tends to charge more for DS MU then Target). I haven't broken out yet, THANK GOD, so if this continues, I believe I may have found my new HG foundation!
