Ok, lets get the most basic response to this foundation out of the way and justify it! So yes, it is very small for a $22 price point. With this foundation a lil bit goes a long way! If you're covering your face use a 1/3 of what you'd normally use, and it'll last 2 to 3 months! Which is about average for foundation - if used daily! Its ideal for spot correcting however (for no foundation looks), so you'll get this to last 4 to 6 months. The only chemical in this is so the foundation sits on top of fine lines/the skin for a more naturall look. Your freckles will peek through, but your skin will look amazing and like skin! This type of foundation keeps it from caking up when you set it. But, honestly you can even skip setting it, if that's your thing, it'll still wear pretty well for the upcoming winter and fall months! There is not talc, PEG's, mineral oil or harmful chemicals and is cruely free!
