It is a moisturising, lightweight formula that applies nice and cool on the skin. The puff that comes with it is pretty meh (hence 4 stars out of 5), but I applied it with a flat foundation brush with no issues. It's definitely good for a my face but better look- even though it was far too dark and pink for me, I was getting complimented left and right over how fresh and dewy my skin looked. The price point wasn't too bad, and it should last you 3-4 months with regular (5-6 days a week) usage. It's also one of the few formulas that didn't stick to my stubborn dry spots, and I have a lot of them.
I tried with simple straight to face application, and I also tried blending it on my skin with a face oil. Both worked out very nicely, no streaking or anything. If you can find a colour in your shade, you should definitely try this one out if you like a fresh dewy look.
Pros: really surprising coverage. It's not full coverage, but you can definitely get medium coverage at least. The finish is a perfect matte-satin so you may not need a finishing powder. It's super blendable and looks very nice with blush on top. I never noticed any white cast, surprising considering it's 50 SPF! Never tried a cushion before but I found that it's easier to moderate the amount of product applied on my face.
Cons: I don't much like the applicator that comes with this--it almost feels like the applicator is absorbing the product. It smudges, so if you wipe your nose your face is going to be all over your tissue.
I gave this product three chances. First time with only moisturizer before application, didn't even last half the day (8AM-11AM), it started looking super cakey and dry. Second time, with primer, started getting patchy during afternoon (8AM-1PM). Last attempt to make this work, moisturizer and primer, lasted a bit longer (8AM-3PM), still cakey and dry. Tried reapplying on all 3 occasions and it made it even worse. I really wanted this product to work, unfortunately it didn't for me :(
I always pick it when I have irritated skin, and I don't have to worry it gets my skin worse.
