This is more like an ultra sheer matte complexion enhancer than a foundation. If you hate a heavy thick oily foundation, this is perfect for you. I'm so glad I did not swap this gel-cream foundation away. I got it in the winter, and the color Antilles was way too dark for my NC35 skintone. But now in the summer, I'm NC42, and this is perfect for my GGG complexion. I love the sanitary squeeze tube. It's great for traveling. It gives nice sheer to light coverage. I did not have a problem spreading it on with my fingers. It blended very easy over my moisturizer. However, if your skin is dry, I could see your skin sucking up this foundation, and making it hard to spread. It happen to me in the winter when I tried it the first time, and that was another reason why I did not like it. I'm so glad I gave it a second chance. I rec putting this on moisturized skin for easy blending. It blends like a dream that way. It's also completely light weight on the skin and doesn't get cakey at all. It's so nice and light for summer, or even if you want somthing light to even out your skintone, but not too much coverage. It looks good hours after I put it on, and still looks fresh after blotting. It did not slip off my oily skin, which surprised me. I can get really oily. It just enhanced my skin and made it look healthy. This is am ultra light weight foundation and does not act as a moisturizer. It doesn't give moisture at all. That's not a bad thing though! I'm combo-oily breakout prone, and this works well with my skin, but I prefer more coverage, so I use the NARS Oil-Free and Balanced foundations. For those of you who are blessed with great skin and no zits scars to hide, you can pull this off easy!
