I am so sad to find out this has been discontinued! I love this foundation. It's a lighter coverage, but that's all I need - and I don't need the moisturizing part of a tinted moisturizer! It also lasted fairly well at my job, which is in a very warm and humid room. I wore Buff, and I also wear a 20 in the MUFE Mat Velvet +.
To be honest, I didn't buy this. I got a large sample out of a new bottle. :) I might buy this, if I find a light moisturizer with SPF that it plays nice with. The texture of this is incredible. It feels weightless on the skin. However, it doesn't play nice with most of my moisturizers. Turning orange after an hour or so is NOT what I expect out of something this expensive (CAD$55, more if you want a pump)! I apply it by dotting it all over, then smoothing it in with my fingers. I was matched to Mont Blanc, which seems to be a perfect match (without moisturizer)!

Well, I picked this up for CAD$2.50 on a whim. Unfortunately, the colour is way off. Even the lightest shade (100) is too dark for my naturally pasty skin. :) It might work towards the end of the summer, so I'll be trying it again then. I do find the product itself works well on me. I've worn it a few times (on my neck as well...), and it doesn't get gross, and it lasts decently. It evens out my red blotchy cheeks, and covers my under-eye circles well. I usually apply it with a flat top brush, and use a loose translucent powder over top.

This is an amazing sunscreen. Usually by the time I'm ready to put on sunscreen in the summer, I'm sweaty, and I detest the greasy feeling of most sunscreens. This one is very liquid, and smooths on so well. It dries completely, and doesn't leave that film on your face. It was CAD$15 for 40mL, and is totally worth it for me. Caveat - it's NOT waterproof. Not at all. I went into the water, and it just melted off.
I have oily eyelids, but dry cheeks/under-eyes, and needed something I could use over my whole eye. I really like this one. It's moisturizing, but absorbs well. I just wish this had an SPF.
