I've been hearing fave reviews about this and wanted to try it myself but I couldn't help but be disappointed. Foundation is a very personal thing that has to fit different peoples skin tones, undertones, skin type, and sensitivities so for what its worth, this could be great for someone else. For me? Not so much. First off the order of the shade range is a mess tbh because the undertones are so strange. There's no direct progression from light to dark or dark to light with the shades because of the undertones--there are at least 3 or 4 shades I would rearrange because when looking from light to dark there are shades that get darker and then one random shade is lighter and the next is darker. Or looking from dark to light there are shades that get lighter and then there are random shades that are darker that should be before the lighter one. That's not even all of it. This is mostly a yellow/golden toned foundation. As someone who has yellow undertones that's great for me but a lot of it is yellow-neutral which is too ashy and golden is too yellow even for me. Now for the foundation itself, its thick. It reminds me of the Kat Von D Lock it foundation but not as thick. Coverage is definitely full, a little goes a long way. It dries down very matte and does get darker once it's dry. It goes on really flawless. However, it begins to settle into lines and cling to texture. By texture, I mean acne scars and pock marks. This is a full coverage foundation that people can tell is on your face. People who want a natural look, beware. The closest comparison foundation to this, in my head, is in fact the Kat Von D Lock it foundation in terms of coverage and how it wears.It felt very very similar to that on my skin. It's also transfer proof. It did not feel light weight. I would not buy again. I did not buy in the first place, I just got a sample when it finally became available in my nearby Sephora.
