After realizing that my MAC Face and Body Foundation doesn't match my skin tone anymore (I had bought it when I was more tanned), I decided to give this foundation a try instead of going back to the MAC counter.

I love it. It is slightly less liquid-y/run-y than the MAC Face and Body, is light-to-medium coverage, buildable, feels light, and does not make me break out. I stipple it onto my skin with a damp makeup sponge (to minimize the amount of makeup wasted) and, on areas where I need more coverage, I simply dab on some more. It blends well into my skin.

My only bad experience with this foundation was that I wasted my money on the first bottle: the shade was close to my skin tone but still a bit too dark (764). It's strange. Sometimes I notice the colour discrepancy, and sometimes I don't. I think this is because the colour was not a perfect match to begin with, and on the days that I notice the mismatch are the days when I feel I need more coverage, so I had put on more layers to build it up. I went back and purchased another bottle one shade lighter (774) and it is perfect. I'll be keeping the 764 in case I tan.

If possible, get a sample to ensure a good colour match. Otherwise, this is a very good light-weight, buildable, foundation that has never broken me out.
