I purchased this almost a year ago, and it went to the back of my foundation drawer for awhile. I pulled it out again a few weeks ago and finding I like this quite a lot.
There is a bit of a learning curve with this...your face needs to be recently exfoliated and lightly moisturized. I find too little or too much moisture throws this off a bit...but, when I get that right, the finish is pretty spectacular.
As I am getting older, foundations have become a real challenge. Most formulas feel too thick and sit in pores and lines. This feels like a dream! It's so soft and extremely lightweight...and gives a nice medium coverage without looking heavy. I also find it applies and wears better without a primer, which is ok as I really don't like primers. My skin wants to breath and the less layers I have on, the better.
I find its best applied with the fingers...which is great for me...I really dislike brushes and sponges...I feel my clean hands are the way to go. It blends quickly, but it's very forgiving.
I can get a solid 6 hours from this, without retouching. But, even with long wear foundations, a little touchup is needed at the 5-6 hour mark. Even when this wears off, it doesn't look awful...it just kind of fades. I simply blot and add a little more were needed.
I love the packaging...it's so great to travel with. The only drawback is you can't see how much is left.
The scent...it's pretty strong, and I sometimes wish it wasn't in there...but, so far, it hasn't irritated my skin.
I find myself reaching for this everyday, pairing it with the Chanel Soleil Tan...it's very easy to apply and my look is so polished.
