I LOVE this foundation! I never would have picked it up if Ulta had not been giving it as a GWP because honestly, I've never had good luck with compact cream foundations. I've always found them to be heavy, thick and dry. However, so far I'm really having success with this one. It's sheer but buildable, doesn't flake and doesn't settle into fine lines or wrinkles. It's super hydrating which is great for my dry winter skin and I can even use it as a concealer! I like that the SPF50 is included in the formula along with all the good skincare ingredients and the packaging is sleek and lightweight. However....the staying power isn't the greatest to be honest, which is why I took off a lippie. At least it does better when set with a good powder but this isn't for oily skin or one of those "24 hour wear" foundations for sure. Also, I'm not too impressed with the color selection either which is why I took off another lippie. Fortunately Fair fits me perfectly but there are only 7 shades. I wish IT Cosmetics would do something about their color range, I'm sure they could afford it!!!! Overall I'm a fan, but it's so expensive!!!! You only get 0.63 oz of product for $38 though I can definitely see myself repurchasing this IF I can get it free or on sale. Oh, and one final thought, don't apply this with the sponge provided or a beauty blender, they soak up too much of the foundation! I use my fingers to apply and then blend with the sponge provided or my Eco Tools Complexion Buffer Brush. Works much better, at least for me! LOVE!!!!
