This is a nice foundation compact but not worth the price. It's a bit too drying as a foundation - it's better as a powder, so if you have combination or dry skin, best to moisturizer first.

I have this in Color 05 - "medium beige with yellow undertones" & it's a perfect match for my Fall/Winter NC30 skin; there's a nice golden yellow to it (also workable as my summer NC35 skin). Major...

i come from a country which frustratingly stocks foundations mostly in fairer colours (i'm quite tanned), so this was god-sent (thanks sephora!). it looks so natural on my skin, i was quite taken...

This is a good foundation powder. The reason I will not buy it again is that I cannot find a good shade match. I have to say it applies and lasts much better with a primer underneath - no need...
