Okay, so I have had this foundation for awhile now. I used it maybe a grand total of 3 times last summer and tossed back into my drawer until I came here and read all the glowing reviews & HAD to give it another chance. My first experience was not really all that great... This foundation slid around my face quite a bit, sunk into my pores, and generally did not look that fantastic after an average day (not outside for too long).

Again, I have been testing it out in the humid, hot early days of June and honestly . . . My feelings have not really changed THAT much. I definitely do not dislike it as much as I did to begin with, then I would have given it a 1 but now a 3, which is an average score.

I put it on at about 6:45 this morning, it is 8:45ish pm now, and I spend a good amount of time just doing nothing but sitting indoors, or riding in a car and it is still pretty darn crummy looking. My skin is not really that terrible either, it is quite smooth, but oily (I use foundation to cover some redness).

It is passable though, but I honestly like Chanel VA much better, or even ELDW sheered out with moisturizer. Both come out looking much better than this by the end of the day, and while I appreciate the SPF in this, I already wear a 50 SPF primer so I do not really need it. :[
