A very liquidish concistancy, which dries up into an matte finish. Easy to blend with (fingers go best) and an medium to high coverage. Does not break out my skin. Overall look is nice. Only thing some may be sensitive is the awful smell or the bottle/tube in which it's very hard to control on how much you want to get out from it (comes in literally a hole which lets out the foundation in large amount, unless you have quick reflexes).

This powder enhanced all the dry patches on my skin, but did control the oil around my nose. The coverage is good, giving off an matte look in my oily areas. However, it does not make justice to dry skins at all. I recommend this product only for those who have oily skins. Dry skins should better watch out.

The primer is lovely. The way it glides to your skin so effortlessly is absolutely stunning. While wearing the primer underneath my foundation, it gave me a more steadier surface to work with. It literally smoothened out my skin. The only thing I was concerned about was thinking how fast it would run out. Since the primer had been squished in a small opaque tube, it was hard to predict how much of there was left. Surprisingly it was sufficient for an entire five months as an every day usage except for weekends and exceptional holidays.
I heard a lot of good reviews about this product. The problem was that the only available shade in the counter was an light ivory, which was a couple of shades lighter than my natural skin color. Anyhow, I decided to give it a try. It was amazing. The texture was absolutely incredible, it was as if I no longer had dark eye circles. I would most likely believe that the purpose of the concealer is more of an brightener, since it didn't cover up any blemishes or anything like that.
This foundation promises an twelve hour natural shine control, for a fresh matte finish. Applying this to my t-zone, it did not affect the oiliness any better or worse as they already were. As for my parts which were neither oily or dry, gave an impression of an soft matte feeling. The foundation itself did not cover up any redness or dark under eye circles. It has a very light coverage which would be more suitable for those who already have good skin. The benefits of this foundation for good skinned people would be an radiant appearance. I would not say that the foundation would last any longer than four hours. It comes out of an liquid consistence, very quick to blend and observe into your skin. Recommended for those who have pink undertones.
The consistency was quite smooth and creamy which was really new to me, but in a good way since I had no problem in blending the product to my face. However, I suggest applying the mousse in small sections so that you can avoid a caked face as an result. After applying the mousse, it's better to wait a couple of minutes so it can achieve the matte look without an problem. Nevertheless how many layers you apply, the coverage stays up from medium to heavy. I would not suggest to go all the way heavy since it will become caked. I've used this foundation for a year or so, and it has not break out my skin at all. Anyhow, it does dry up your skin a bit, but that should not be a problem if you remember to moisturize.
