I actually have this in the light shade. I wear it underneath my foundation and concealer. It creates a blank canvas for concealer and foundation. I have never worn it alone but I can tell a difference when I put it on and look in the mirror. I can see that my skin tone is evened out but I'm just more comfortable wearing foundation over it. It is on the expensive side, but I do notice also that you don't need a lot of this product in order to make it work.
