I loved the way this product looked when it was on. The color was good, it lasted all day, had a natural finish. What I do not like is the packaging and application. Putting the makeup on the sponge and the smearing it on my face, I had to pull so hard I felt like I was giving myself jowls. No joke. I loved the way this looked but I can't spend that much time stretching my skin to apply in the morning!
This makeup appeared to be developed using technology from the 1950's. It claims to be "nearly naked", and yet I haven't seen a foundation look so obvious on me in....ever! Ever. This was disgusting. I have fair skin.

This product is great for weekends. I recommend using it with a moisturizer, letting it dry for a few minutes, and then finishing with a powder. The end result is a very natural look. However, it does take awhile to apply since it does need to dry and then have powder applied. It is a light coverage, so I don't use it on workdays when I am very tired and have the undereye circles doing and redness, but it blends very well and that's why it is great for weekends. The fair shade is great for me and I love to keep some of this on hand for days when I want to look good, but I don't want to go all-out with a full makeup routine.
My biggest complaint about this product was that it was difficult to apply. Because the mousse is so clumpy, it was hard to control how much I was taking out of the jar, and it did not spread or blend very well. If I was able to apply it sucessfully, it looked OK. But it started to appear cakey as the day wore on, was difficult to take off at night, and gave me blackheads, which is very rare for me to get from a foundation.

I love this foundation! It is buildable from light to medium/full, and leaves a cool tingly feeling on my skin. It looks extremely natural even without power on my combination skin. What I love most about it is that it blends so well and is easy to apply. I put it on with my fingers and I never have to feel nervous about my application, even on days when I am putting on makeup so early that I am still half asleep! I will admit, the staying power could be better. By the time I come home after a 10 hour day at work, I can see that it has thinned out in some spots. However, I don't think other people would notice this, because the product really does blend extremely well. But I notice it. I don't mind that fact that it wears a little throughout the day thought because it is such a nice foundation overall.
