This product that is raved about, isn't my favorite. There are better products out there, and this product is not the one. I got the product, almost bursting with joy, this product I wanted to be my savior. It wasn't. The coverage is not sheer, but it's not medium. It covers things up but still shows them. It's hard to apply to the face. It doesn't do much for oil control. I find myself oily after three or four hours of wear without a primer. *Oily for me is when my skin is covered in a layer of oil, and it gets pretty bad. Doesn't look nice on the face for everyday wear, and when you take pictures it shows acne completely. It didn't break me out. This product didn't do much for me. Stay away if you have dry skin, and I just don't recommend it.
I am so disgruntled by the oiliness of my complexion, that it's frustrating at times. I'm still going through different foundations, I've been through about ten in the last year, but this foundation stands out. When I got this product, I was excited, this finally might be the one. To my naive little mind, it seemed too good to be true. It was. Overall, the color of this product is too orange. I have oily skin and this did keep me matte for a good amount of time, and I must mention that my skin did look good in pictures. It gave me a full coverage and looked rather nice in unnatural lighting like the house for instantce. Something about walking out into the sun screws with the foundations and makes it orange. The product did not break me out. The product went on nicely, and it looked nice. The down side to this product is just the color, the way it won't match a white persons skin. It's too pigmented. The color just isn't right, I wish that SmashBox could just fix the colors, I honestly would buy it again if the colors were proper.
