I am so excited as I write this. I had been searching high and low for a truly good oil free foundation that is truly full coverage with a shade light enough to match my super pale skin. I've tried everybody's (from La Prairie to Lauder to Cle De Peau to Dior and everything in between). This is truly beautiful stuff here. First of all the packaging is wonderfully hygienic and shade #15 (Alabaster) made my skin look like pure porcelain. I was surprised to see how light this was considering the fact that MakeUpForever's Face & Body Foundation in their lightest shade looked like mud on me (palest shade way too dark). They offer a beautiful cool shade that will match even the fairest of skins. The make up actually feels good going on and smooths on beautifully making my skin look near flawless with out that chalky caked look! In fact it's the first make up I have ever had on that looks flawless inside and totally natural outside. It looks like your own skin somehow even though it does a great job of covering up any marks you may want to hide (and if I have a few bad ones I just dab on a little Bobbi Brown Porcelain Concealer and I look flawless). I would rather have this kind of foundation that does cover well and looks so velvety and natural then a foundation that looks cakey and unnatural but covers everything without any concealer. The final test was when I went into the bathroom at lunchtime and saw that I barely needed to blot (you always need to blot if you're oily because nothing can alter your sebaceous glands) but this stuff held up remarkably well! It also feels clean on your skin which is very important to me. Love love love this foundation!!!EDITI can't believe that this is the only foundation I have ever worn that caused absolutely no break outs but here I am a couple of days later and no break outs whatsoever (Usually I always get a blemish or two at the end of the day when wearing almost all foundation)! This is getting better and better! This is VERY impressive stuff!
