I've been through a lot of foundations, and upon wearing this for only a few weeks I felt inclined to do a review. This has been my favorite foundation thus far. For such a light water-based texture, the coverage is definitely impressive. I'd say moderate/medium and buildable. I would not say at all that is is like a tinted moisturizer, this is very much a foundation. The "glow from within" claims are definitely true - I notice my skin looks a lot brighter throughout the day, it's lovely. I myself thought the light-reflecting qualities would make me look greasy, but that is not the case at all. It's a beautiful finish, not matte and not at all shiny, just a beautiful second skin that feels like nothing. My skin definitely feels hydrated with this on. It holds up throughout the day which I was very pleased with. Another thing that is notable is the pump dispenser - I feel like I'm not putting any product to waste. I usually use one pump for a daytime coverage, and 1 1/2 - 2 pumps for more of a gorgeous porcelain coverage for night. Also - the claims that this foundation will improve your skin due to the rose extract within the ingredients is definitely true, surprisingly. I have noticed a significant decrease in redness, my skin is much more even without a change in my skin regime, so I know it's this foundation. What can I say, HG material and I think my long search is over. Gorgeous stuff, i'd definitely at least pick up a sample. You'll be sold.
