I've generally had underwhelming experiences with make up base (Nars, Benefit, Make Up Forever, Pore Putty.) But this product is great. It made it seem like my natural skin was just better - not that I was wearing make-up to hide imperfections. I read that nozzle control may be difficult, so I was especially careful and I still squeezed out a bit more than I would have liked to. Concentrated on the areas that need the most help on my face - forehead between brows, nose and either side of my nose. Went over the area with the shu uemura powder foundation. It looked like I had better, more even, skin. I think this is the key concept with this product. Held up my walk to work during summer time in Southern California and through most of a regular working day indoors without touch up. Though by time I was ready to leave work, it had pretty much run its course.
Very fair Asian skin. Purchased "Porcelain Ivory." The foundation came highly recommended by 30+ year old Japanese magazine models on their blogs. Bought the foundation faith that these are women who have my type of skin and are a few years older than me and should know what they like/dislike. Need to pump out very little. Less than I think I would need. Used a make-up brush to apply. At first, it seemed to make no difference and I thought perhaps I needed to apply more. But after a few seconds, it "set." My complexion definitely looked brighter and evened-out. Coverage was pretty good. Still holding after a summer night out, including a long walk. Quite satisfied.
