I got matched to fair ivory (I-40 I believe) too light and pink! I'm NC35 at my lightest...curse you deceiving department store lighting! I couldn't get a sample so I actually bought it. UGH. Okay, let me start of with the pros: -I love the texture, thick & creamy. Not running at all. Feels so velvety soft and luxurious. (should be! It's the most expensive foundation I own right now) -No chemical smell. Actually, I don't think it smells like anything really. -Love the pump, but hate the bottle (looks a little ugly honestly) -Love the finish (a satin finish) But what I don't like about it is: -although it says 'full coverage', it's not...atleast not how I like it. -the color was off (too light & pink) -the wear isn't that great -I asked for 'full coverage' but this is geared towards normal/dry skin, whereas I have oily skin, which I guess is why it doesn't last long on me. The foundation for oily skin is sheer/buildable to medium coverage. -Horrible with flash photography (casper anyone?) It's a nice foundation, I'm not sure I would repurchase. I lost the receipt so I can't get a refund but I might be able to get an exchange (for a darker shade). I've had this for a week and used it twice...maybe I should swap it here instead?
