This is currently my favorite foundation. It applies very easily, and you can choose to go lighter for light coverage, or heavy for full coverage and it doesn’t look cakey! It feels very smooth and helps blur imperfections. It’s not the best for covering acne, but does the trick for the occasional zit. I recommend this product!

This is a beautiful foundation - I love it! At first I was using the wrong primer with it, but I tried a different primer and it worked great! The finish is so natural looking and pretty glowy (without glitter in it). This is lighter coverage than I usually use (I usually like low-high full coverage and this is a lighter medium coverage when using a sponge) but it’s so beautiful so I don’t mind! Nice staying power too.. doesn’t really look cakey or heavy.. I highly recommend if you don’t mind a lighter coverage foundation!

This foundation is amazing. Whenever I wore it I would get hundreds of complements and people asking about it. It gives you an airbrushed look. Your skin looks flawless and full coverage.
