I picked up a bottle of this in "Light 1" quite a while ago, and it sat in my collection until about a month ago. I decided to try them out and I am SO glad that I did. I started off by using these right after applying my moisturizer (while it was still moist on the skin)... nothing mixed with it. I used a dry beauty blender and that worked very well, but the color was slightly too yellow for my skin (which tends more neutral-pink undertones). So then I tried mixing in my MUFE Full Cover concealer (#4) and that really helped take down the yellow a notch. This is my favorite way to wear it but both ways are very long lasting and almost look like there's nothing on my skin. My technique: I simply put my concealer (doing a W-shape about 1/2" tall) onto a clean surface, then add the drops on top and mix with the end of a small makeup brush. Then I dip a dry beauty blender into it and swipe it all over my face. This single layer gives me pretty good coverage but I always dip back in and bounce the sponge over my face for a 2nd layer on the spots I need it (mostly cheeks). Very build-able coverage! I've also tried mixing this with Etude House Face Blur Primer and the results were pretty good. The primer itself is kinda light so that helped lessen the yellow tones of the drops. I haven't tried wearing this all day but I wore it for a few hours out to dinner and it was pretty good. The drops are very pigmented, yet also very runny, so the dropper bottle is quite messy but it's easy to clean up if you make a mess. I shake it really well to mix things up before using it. I think this would not work well BY ITSELF if your skin is too dry to begin with, which is why I like to put it on very soon after moisturizing. Next I will try using it mixed into moisturizer but I really like the effect of the drops with my concealer for everyday wear. Great price; will definitely buy these again.
