I'm really on the fence with this one. The only reason I bought it is because I've started traveling more for work, and this is wonderfully portable, doesn't take up much room in my travel case unlike standard size tubes of TM (which is what I tend to travel with, rather than foundation). I found a perfect shade match in Sand, and if I can get it blended just right it does look fantastic. But that's the problem -- the big *IF*. I have to change my moisturizer to a heavier cream one so that this stuff doesn't cling to every single speck of dry skin I have; not a big deal in winter, but not great in warmer months where a heavy moisturizer is a no-go. I found the best blending method for me is fingers; blending with a foundation brush accentuated any flakes I had, oddly enough, and left streaks. I can still see a bit of flakiness with fingers, but not horrible. The problem with using my fingers, though, is I feel like it's easy to miss spots because this is a cream foundation in a stick that has a good deal of coverage, it's not a super-spreadable TM-type product or something really sheer and fluid, and I find myself constantly checking my face throughout the day because I'm paranoid about having poorly-blended foundation. I'm going to return it because it's too much hassle to get it right and I just don't have confidence wearing it. I did give it 3 stars because it is a quality product, the color is stellar, and it is supremely portable.
