This is my go to foundation when i'm broke, its dirt cheap at about $17 in NZ which is probably the cheapest foundation you can find. But in saying that I HATE it! I apply it using a stippling brush and it gives medium coverage but the finish is yuck yuck yuck! Its gives more of a dewy finish vs matte although dewy makes it sound nice and its not nice, maybe oily greasy finish would be a better description, and it has a weird sticky consistency that never really dries unless you put a powder over top. One positive is that It blends somewhat easily, definitely more forgiving then revlon CS and it is build-able without going too cakey. The biggest issue though, that I have with this foundation is its staying power. I have fairly oily skin so I find after about an hour or so this foundation has oxidized and slipped around my face. It looks terrible! It also wears off in patches and emphasises any large pores. At the end of an eight hour day at work I'm embarrassed for anyone to see my face its that bad! As much as I hate this foundation on a students budget I do find myself reaching for it on the odd occasion (I have bad skin so going au natural is not an option). I recommend pairing it with a mixture of Ben Nye's yellow powder and neutral set powder it gives the fdt a little more wearability and longevity.
