Purchased this in Tan and Medium Dark. The medium dark is actually lighter shade than the tan, Medium dark has yellow undertones. Returned the Tan don't think I could use it in even in the summer. I'm C40 in MAC. Application is easy, for mornings in a rush this is golden! This is not my special occasion foundation, but for everyday/running errands it works. And coverage is pretty decent. I have oily skin, I did notice a bit more shine than normal, I have to blot sooner than usual. The bronzer included in the kit is ok, a bit ashy on me, but I use an alternate bronzer. Will repurchase the foundation, not the kit. The blush is nice.

Buy! Spray on your hands then apply. Do not spray directly onto your legs. It stays put, but I would not wear white, there is a slight rub off.

Bought this in Dark, I'm c40 in studio fix, blends nicely. I finish with a powder and a bronzer. Nice cover, but like a previous user mentioned, can't have too many blemishes. It's quick and easy, but I noticed that my skin produces a little more oil than usual.
I love the colors, but it is super pigmented. WOC with lighter complexions, use sparingly. You must shake, tap off the excess off of the brush.

Update: The foundation is settling on my pores and lines. Plus my skin looks super oily within just a few hours. I tried different application techniques, nothing works. I will not repurchase. This product is amazing. But be prepared to work. It took me several days to figure out how to apply the foundation. Like other reviews you can not just apply. I mix it with a light moisturizer. I mix two colors SX11 and SX12 with a foundation brush and then use the beauty blender sponge (spritzed with rose water). Top off with a setting powder. It took a couple of tries to find the right fix so I'm not too sure if it would work for everyone. I have oily skin, but this does not break me out.
Nice product, quick and easy. Would repurchase, but I just can't wash it off.

The best mineral makeup. I tried BE, but I have yellow/olive undertones, this product has a better selection. I have switched from MAC, which clogged my pores badly. The weird thing about this product, it looks better as the day goes by. I don't re-apply just blot. Once you find your color buy the lighter and darker shade, it helps to highlight and adjust for the summer months.
