You can probably get a good idea about this product from the many other reviews on this site. It’s my favourite foundation and the one I use everyday. I just wanted to point out a few things about it: - It does not have a lot of slip and it dries down fairly quickly. I therefore think it looks much better when I apply it in a small section at a time, blending quickly (I use a damp beautyblender). Otherwise it can set before I have time to blend (I do however not use a lot of product since I prefer light/light-medium coverage) - It’s very skin like! While it has a nice medium coverage, I apply it sparingly in small sections and blend it quickly with a beautyblender. It sheers it out a bit and looks very natural and unnoticeable even outside in natural light. It’s very impressive especially considering the coverage. I use it for “no makeup makeup” applied in a sheer layer all over. I can also get a nice medium coverage with a normal amount, or high coverage if I build it to use as a concealer over blemishes and redness and then just apply it sheer everywhere else for more perfected look (that still manages to look like light and natural makeup rather than a mask). Either way looks nice. - It sets to an initially velvet/matte finish with a hint of shine when first applied. Not flat or chalky/powdery matte it looks nice, but It is not my preferred look. However it softens into a nice satin/luminous satin which I like after a short while. Also it contains absolutely no shimmer not even Pearl/micro-shimmer! I have checked it outside in direct sunlight and there isn’t any, so if you dislike shimmer of any kind rest assured this does not have it. - It’s not super long wearing, but it’s not too difficult to remove either which is nice if you have sensitive skin like I do. Also it wears off really nicely and evenly! It just gradually fades. Without really any significant settling into lines or emphasising texture or whatever. It can look a bit too luminous after a while though, so I would recommend you powder it if that is a concern (I like MUFE Ultra HD loose powder), but it’s not too bad. - It is a bit finicky when you apply it and can stick to dry patches a bit. Applying it in small sections, one at a time, and blending well usually solves the issue. It’s not slap it on quickly and head out the door type of foundation that I can just apply with fingers. You do need to baby it a bit I think. But if I take a bit of time and apply it right it usually looks great. - It works on my sensitive skin even with the alcohol and the fragrance. The fragrance is mild (beach sunscreen like smell?) and dissipates. Their is alcohol in this, but it’s in quite a low amount I think judging by the ingredient list and my experience with the product. It doesn’t smell like alcohol and it also doesn’t have that cool/cold/absorbent/refreshed kind of sensation that alcohol usually gives products. Alcohol is usually an issue for my skin, but my skin is fine using this even everyday! The fragrance hasn’t bothered my skin either. I have used a whole bottle and have repurchased. I’m about MAC NW15-20 (Mostly neutral slightly-cool and quite muted) I use shade 5 and it’s a fairly good match.
