this foundation was just okay. it could feel very thick at times and made my nose pretty oily despite my setting it with powder in the morning. i would still have to blot halfway through the day, and that was whatever was leftover of it by then. the coverage is sheer-medium, and since i am trying to cover acne scars that really isnt appropriate, which is irritating because the foundation is designed specifically for that. i tested at home with the different levels of coverage, and the only way i could possibly be comfortable with the coverage was if i put 2-3 layers, (which i am not accustomed to, i usually just have a little bit of foundation or powder depending on the occasion, and never both) and it looked a little cakey. im definitely not a cakeface and am not comfortable with that amount of makeup on my face all day. i have acne-prone sensitive skin so that much would probably break me out. i haven't worn it for a long time on a daily basis because i got a sample. i got matched to Ginger.

i used to wear the caramel, simply because the nutmeg was too orangey... overall good coverage, BUT TRANSFERS VERY EASILY, and is definitely not long lasting.
this was my second liquid foundation, ever. i was really excited about the 18 shades selection, promising a perfect match for dark skin tones. perfect match , alright : it COMPLETELY disappeared into my skin, to the point where it was useless. ZERO coverage, no matter what i used : sponge, brush, or fingers. the packing looked fancy and high-end, but it was a mask for a poor quality fouundation. DEFINETELY NOT long lasting, 2-3 hours max (and i dont even have super oily skin, so its not like it absorbed it all and oxidized it). its just that short-lived. pros: smelled nice, didn't feel heavy.
