The price point is a little steep, but considering how I no longer had to wear any powder on top the way I used to for liquid foundation, price-wise it actually ends up being about the same, if not better.
I lived in the Mediterranean for 14 months, and this is the only thing that held up! Naturally my skin is very oily, but with the heat and dust, I was surprised that this held up! It didn’t look extra powdery matte at the end of the day, but I didn’t look like an oil slick (as I do with all other foundations), I had more like a healthy glisten/glow.
I’d honestly flick off a star for the packaging if the formula wasn’t just so darn brilliant! In the old pump package it would always get stuck. I found that 3 out of my 4 bottles got stuck, which was a pain. I think they realized this was a problem and changed to a squeeze tube dispenser. Despite this (slight) improvement, it didn’t travel well and when I opened it after bringing it to an overnight, the cap was completely full and there was foundation on the sides of the tip. I thought it might travel well because of the light package, but I might have to reconsider.
