Just used this for a photo shoot and it is wonderful! Didn't sink into fine lines at all and gave a fresh, even look. I've tried just about every foundation out there and am quite surprised. Only caution is that the color match is key. I'm lucky to have a Kryolan store nearby, but I imagine ordering from the website would be a bit tricky. Worth it though!
UPDATE: I bounce this on with an egg shaped sponge (Sonia Kashuk's dupe of the Beautyblender) and it gives flawless coverage. Now I reach for this one every day --even though I do like my other foundations.

I got this thru Danceshopper.com, for $36 you get 18 shades of their micro cream foundation designed for hi-definition TV.
They all housed in a snapped compact, no mirror included. Each shade should be good for 5-8 application. My pick was Nr#2 for my NC 30-40, GA #5.5, LM #4 skin, MFC245, MFC 340 matches quite well, MFC 360 is just a tad darker, beware of MFC 350, it has red in it. For those dark undereye circles, I used a lighter shade with yellow like MFC 250 or MFC 330.
It has a good slip, but use a little primer underneath is good. An application with fdn brush offers a porless & even skin, I dusted it with Px loose powder & still look natural, even under strong sunlight. It does not cover completely my melasma, which is purple/brown color, reapplied more does not help b/c it simply does not piggyback on itself well. It blurred the melasma with the good skin & thats all I want.
I will get the larger individual size when I used up those on the palette.
Update: I took 2 lippies off, while the color match is excellent; its simply too greasy, even for my dry cheeks, let alone on the T-zone, & you definitely need powder on top of this to make it stay. $32 for 12 gms is too expensive.

This is part of the Kryolan line of make up designed for use when filming in high definition digital format. Don't let that concern you. The coverage is great, blends easily, builds nicely and is best applied with either a foundation brush or fine pored sponge. I have found it to wear suprising well for a creme, even on my oily skin. It comes in a small metal tin, approximately 2 inches in diameter, which makes it easy to slip into my makeup bag. It makes my 45 year old skin look great (I don't have a lot of wrinkles to cover thanks to good genes and the fantical use of sunscreen for the past 15 years) and has a good finish that looks natural. I top it with the Kroylan High Definition Silk Powder for that extra bit of polish. There is suppose to be some SPF value to this foundation, but I do not see a rating anywhere. My only complaint, and it is minor, is that the color charts on the websites where Kryolan can be purchased are very odd, it is better if you have a local store you can go to to check out the array of tones. As a rule, I have found all the Kryolan products to be of a very high quality and value. Will definately repurchase.
