After reading all the great reviews about this foundation, I was really excited to try it. Especially since my skin has been looking so good lately (thank you, Cerave!) I've been a long-time user of DW Light, which I love, but it has a tendency to make my dry patches show up later in the day, and the color I was using (#2) was the tiniest bit too dark.

I really liked the no-makeup look face & body gives. It's very natural and looks nice when first applied. However, as the day wears on, my face feels greasy and I need to blot. I never needed to blot with DW Light. And I don't even have oily skin! I'm sure it's the Mango Seed butter/oil in this. I should have known, since my skin hates all oils. It didn't break me out, but I only used it for 2 days. I do think the fragrance is irritating my skin a little bit. The fragrance of this foundation is HORRID. It's so strong. Much stronger than Double Wear. It's too much for me.

It does a nice job of evening the skin, but it's too dewy and greasy-feeling for me. Setting it with powder didn't help, and I had to retouch throughout the day. I just don't like it.

Applying it with fingers is the best. It's too liquidy for a brush or sponge.

I got it in #32 Alabaster Beige, which was a pretty good color. A tad too yellow for me though, I prefer something more beige. At first I purchased #22, but had to exchange it because it was too pink and a little too dark. For reference, I'm NW20-25, #2 in DW Light. I have neutral undertones. Fresco was my perfect shade in Double Wear when I was paler, but now that I'm tanner, it's too light. I really wish EL would make a wider range of shades in DW Light, but that's another story.
