I browse MUA often but have never really purchased anything worth reviewing. This product has me going WOW. I wish I could give it a 4.5 because that's closer to what I think this product is rated.

A bit of context: I have very oily skin...very oily...like enough oil to gas my car every day. I moisturize with jojoba oil and exfoliate with an AHA every other day. I use milk of magnesia and monistat chafing gel as primers and I used to use BB cream as my daily foundation and I STILL get pretty oily plus the BB cream just kinda melted away. My face has a few hyperpigmentation scarring from past acne and once in a while a zit here and there. My skin tone is a bit uneven and my face is definitely a bit darker than my neck/chest. Other than that, I don't really need heavy coverage.

I bought SP40 & SP60 to mix together since I wanted it to match my neck/chest. It oxidizes and matches my skin perfectly. I've had it on for 7 hours now and it has stayed put! Not only has it not budged, but I didn't get oily! It still looks nice and smooth with a dewy finish which is EXACTLY what I wanted in a foundation. It blended so perfectly that it looks just like my skin. The only grip I have is that it doesn't really cover my rare zit or my couple of dark spots extremely well but that's what concealer is for! To top it off, you get SPF42 to protect your skin.

I still can't believe that I'm wearing liquid foundation because I really thought all the things that I wanted in one foundation was a pipe dream. I can finally say, my quest for my HG foundation is finally over. All thanks to this community!
