I hate that I am going to leave this a negative review. This foundation SHOULD get 5 stars—the finish is beautiful and softly matte. The color was a spot-on match. The foundation wore all damn day....

Shade range has broad options. Full coverage. The pump sometimes sucks. Matte dewy finish for oily skin. Really cheap so it's not a big money loss if you don't like it. Lasts all day. The reason I...

Shell is spot on the perfect shade and undertone for me. Texture is great but took off lippies because of the scent. It is so strong and flowery I actually threw the bottle away after swatching it....

This foundation is cheap and cheerful. I figured, why not try it for the price. I got it in ‘natural’ and it was a decent match for my NC13 skin. It was ok for me but not amazing. It was just a bit...
