I think I will reserve this as an undereye concealer and not a foundation like the above reviewer.

I have this in 420, it is a pretty decent match, I can wear most nc20 matches but this might be a bit darker and yellow than what I usually go for. Full coverage is achievable but sheer coverage is not, it looks patchy if too sheer for some weird reason. It looks good from a distance, smooth, satin finish, diffuses the look of pores, can cover freckles (70%) and probably great in pics. Up close and personal on my 29 year old skin is not so great because fine lines,flakes and dry patches, etc are enhanced compared to skin with just skincare on.

I'll stick with my chantecaille future skin foundation over this.

Makes a perfect under eye concealer, as long as you apply it immediately after a moisturizer. Never creases, never smudges or smears, just stays put all day long. Lovely texture, just glides on, and hangs in there. Extremely natural looking, even my husband, who hates visible makeup, never guesses I have it on. That way, both of us are happy!
Expensive, but since I use it as an under eye concealer, it lasts forever. So it is cheaper in the long run than an inexpensive concealer that flakes, accentuates wrinkles and that you toss out anyway.
For me, medium olive skin with very dark circles, shade 420 is very good in the winter.
For summer, bought the shade 450 and it is absolutely perfect for summer if you have a medium olive tone undertone to your skin and tan easily. For the spring and fall, I will mix the 450 and 420, when my skin is more light/medium. NB it does not break me out or cause milia. Worth the $$$!
