I only had a generously sized sample of this. It's a beautiful foundation. The finish is fantastic, truly a luminous matte, not flat, not cakey, & feels lightweight on. I didn't expect it to keep my face matte, but it did a little, I didn't have to blot for 5 hours which is about double my usual. The coverage is medium (enough to cover redness around my nose and acne scars, but not the freckle on my cheek), which is perfect for me. The only problem (mind you it is a very big problem), is that it caused cystic acne. I've never had a foundation do that. Sometimes a new product will cause little whiteheads, but sure enough, this gave me big, huge, ugly zits. About 4 the first time I wore it, and only 1 a few weeks later when I tried to wear it again. It makes me so sad, it's such a gorgeous foundation. Would be my HG if it didn't break me out. I'm tempted to buy it and blame the break out on a contaminated sample which could possibly be true.Anyway, I know everyone's skin is different, and it might not break you out. So if recovering from a couple zits doesn't sound too bad, try this. It's beautiful and worth the risk if it works for you.
