This is a really long-lasting, medium coverage foundation: it covers hyperpigmentation well, Evens out the skin tone very well, but certain darker sport still need some more concealing

I normally use quite light coverage, powder foundation, but sometimes my skin looks a little worse, or there are days I just feel a little more self-concious about my skin, or want to look extra polishes - then I use this. I usually don't use it for long periods at a time though, as even with my most waterproof-makeup-removing makeup remover, this still seems to clog my pores up a little bit, and it's just not worth it

My skin type is dry, but I no sturize my skin very well, so it's almost never ever flaky - even during the winter. This CAN be used by those with dry skin, but moisturization is essential. If you have flaky skin, this makes it look bad - it then applies very patchy. My favorite method of application is a beauty blender, or a simple latex sponge (ca same thing, but harder to use). You have to work with this quite quickly, or it begins to dry and apply patchy

For me, the biggest problem was how this dries: it stays sticky! This is why I always have to powder this, which is quite a tricky thing to do well: if you drag a powderwd brush along this, it becomes patchy -_- My method is this to use a suuuuper soft brush that I can load up with powder and PAT around my face. Even though it seems like this should be perfect for oily skin, I strongly recommend to at least powder your T-zone, as this doesn't keep my oils at bay in these areas

Lastly: colour. I'm very yellow and quite light, and use NC15 in this. At first, it may seem as NC20 is the correct choice, but this oxidizes a lot, and it also oxidizes more and more in the bottle, the older it is. This might be quite a problem for some, but not for me personally, as I can adapt how light/datk it looks pretty well using bronzer

So, to sum up: this is not foolproof, but if you can work with it, it's a good, very long-lasting foundation. I like this better than Estee Lauder's Double Wear because it doesn't dehydrates my skin as much - DW is for skin that is oilier than mine. Pro-Longwear is the foundation that lasts the longest out of everything I've tried, without transferring much at all. Not an everyday foundation for me, but when I have it, I always know I'll be able to cover up really bad skin days :]
