I bought this for the summer because I work outside all day with little kids. I purchased it online and decided to go with #35 which is PERFECT for my light-medium skin with neutral undertones. For reference, I am NC30-5 and MUFE HD foundation in #125.
This is definitely a full coverage foundation, which I like. You know those pulsing pimples you get around that time of the month? This covers it. Light acne scarring or hyper pigmentation...this covers it. The pimples that you (shouldn't but already) picked so they get all dry and crusty? This covers it! Just pat it on instead of rubbing it in.
I have normal/combo skin but tend to get a little bit more oily in the summer and this keeps my face dewy all day long even in very humid weather. It also goes along very well with my MSFN Medium Dark which tends to make someone oilier than usual but not for me! Poreless perfection all day long.
I like the squeeze tube because you can somewhat control how much product you want. I find myself reaching for this quite often but I do use my MUFE HD foundation for going out because I'm not sure how this one photographs.
As for application, I used to use a stippling brush but now I find it easier just to use my fingers and kind of pat it on. It blends in seamlessly with my skin.
I would recommend & buy this again. Price is around $36...add a couple of Jack Black lip balms to your cart and you'll get free shipping from sephora.com!
