I bought this whilst considering to buy Estee Lauder's Double Wear foundation but thought I'd give try as it is a lot cheaper. I bought this in True Beige - to be honest where I bought it, the colours were very limited and I'd really wanted Golden Beige. Anyhow I got this as it was the closest to my skintone in the selection. I have extemely oily skin so was desperate to have some make up that stays put. When I first applied this (didnt notice the smell at all!) I found it easy to apply, no problem with application using a sponge. I'd say it is medium coverage, I have very large pores and acne scars which are impossible to hide but this does help disguise them quite a bit. It has a nice natural finish, doesn't feel heavy on the skin and has stayed put for most of the day on me, though I still get shiny after a few hours (but I think that's just me!). I think this shade is slightly pink on me and I have golden undertones, next time I buy I would definately try and find the Golden Beige shade. I would buy again, it is good foundation and ticks most of my boxes. Though I do admit the perfectionist in me would still like to try Estee Lauder's Double Wear, so I may buy it someday when I have a few extra pounds in my pocket!
