I've gone through some samples of this and it sounded like a foundation that would be quite wonderful! But I found it to be quite mediocre. For me, it didn't offer any type of ethereal glow.
It's just..... meh. It's a bit watery (which is fine with me) and sets fairly quickly. I've tried it with various primers and various methods of application but it just didn't do it for me. Almost seemed a bit drying....?? When I used a liquid luminous product under this, it looked fine, which surprised me because I had thought adding any type of luminosity would take this foundation WAY over the top! But that wasn't the case, whether I was in the sunshine, or at work under harsh lighting, the luminous addition helped some (RMS Magic Luminizer, Manna Sheer Glo as well as Mac Strobe).
There are definitely drugstore foundations that provide a nicer, smoother finish for my aging skin (I like Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Breathable liquid foundation and was so surprised to find it's not too matte for me, not cakey at all, and it really does hold up all day and night while providing a nice, healthy look! Also like the Bourjois 123 Perfect liquid foundation.)
I love trying different foundations and there are so many other options out there for far less money, that offer quite a nice finish on mature skin, but this one was surprisingly unremarkable.
