I am a sucker for any product that lets me take short cut. This foundation is affordable, under $10, but I would not say that it doesn't need a primer underneath. I still use one, and find it to be long lasting. I work 12 hour shifts at a hospital and my make up stays in place! Through blood, sweat, and tears! It is build-able coverage but not full coverage initially. I find myself adding just a bit more here and there where I have acne. Overall, great product!
