Bought this on a total whim from Sephora -- I always like to try new things (and my old standby Rimmel StayMatte has such horrible packaging). I've used it about a month now, and I do like it as a...

This looks absolutely beautiful on me, I use it as my everyday go to foundation. I use my usual concealer then buff this over the top with a kabuki brush. It is light to medium coverage but that...

I’ve been using this for a year years. I have acne prone sensitive skin. This is one of the only powders I can use on my face. The other is nude by nature.

I hated this foundation. It seemed to have a lot of transfer on everything - clothes, etc. I got oily quick and then oxidized. Seemed to have a good color range but not great coverage. Just not...

I'm not sure how to rate this, so I'm going with a neutral three. I loved the fine texture, and this is the first pink undertoned foundation I ever thought looked natural and flattering on me. BUT,...
