First of all, I have VITILIGO for now on my hands and a little on my face and I am brown so it shows up like a neon sign. I have tried so much makeup hoping to find that it had the staying power of the mistress of a rich man in Paris. I LOVE this cake makeup! Talk about flawless? OMG! I can't stop looking at my beautiful self! I tested it out at Atlanta Costumes here in Atlanta and it's really hot outside and I stayed out for hours walking around with my fiance. I sealed the cake with Final Seal from Ben Nye too and mixed the cake with Nye's mixing liquid and fixative, can't remember the name of it but it's a richer mix than with just water, meaning, you get a richer color on your skin in my opinion. I just got home and my hands look very good even after washing them which I always do when I come home. I used a bit of soap but didn't use the soap on my back of my hands where the cake is, just hot water and the makeup is still there sans around the cuticles. It's still on the cuticles but not as much as it was before washing my hands, although not perfect anymore on my hands but certainly good enough! My face looks as if I just applied it and even better actually as now it's melded into my skin. The color is alive not dead as I hear some people say with pancake. Not Ben Nye! Ben rocks! And $9??? Come on! Ben Nye has an excellent moisturizer that I also used and the sales lady said it was great so I bought it...for $8. Ha! Remember, though, buy the mixing liquid and Final Seal. You will not go wrong and it's WATERPROOFED (more than anything I've ever tried) No\w we all can look beautiful from morning to evening with no muss no fuss. I'm so happy that I can now use this cake makeup for longevity and not worry about it sliding off onto paper and objects in the office or a restaurants. I can wipe my hands on my face and no makeup. I can dry wipe my hands and no makeup! When I wash my hands, I just pat to dry and the makeup reverts back to being immovable. I'm in love. Lemme go look at my beautiful self again...(smile)...

Okay, I have brown skin. I have vitiligo, pure white spots, not bad vitiligo, but bothersome on my hands and corner of lips and under my nose. I have tried all sorts of foundations, concealers and what have you so I know what works and what just doesn't. OMG! HD is the BEST! The most amazing thing is it covers my vitiligo on my hand and when I tried to rub it off, it stays!! I did put on mist & fix, also by MUF, but the point is, IT STAYS ON my hands! If that wasn't enough, on my face it's lovely! It's so natural, I can't believe it. This is remarkably natural looking and it is layerable (is that a word?) I love it and will keep using it! UPDATE: Not nearly as good as Ben Nye Cake Foundation. I no longer use this product for my special needs. Ben Nye Cake takes the cake! It's the mother of all foundations, the facial colors for brown skin are amazing and with the Final Seal and mixing liquid, it becomes immovable. See my comment under Ben Nye Cake Foundation. Toodleloo!
