This foundation was gifted to me after I had mentioned I had wanted it for awhile. I was excited yet hesitant to try it. I had heard a lot of people either loving it or hating it and I wanted to love it so much. But me, being a huge makeup junkie, decided I was happy to have it as a part of my collection either way.
When I first received it and glanced at the color I noticed it looked a tiny bit dark for my skin tone, which made me kind of sad because I was SO excited to try it out. So one night when I didn't have any plans or anywhere to go I put on a full face of this foundation (as I do with all new foundations) and to my surprise, it matched my skin fairly well! I probably could have went one shade lighter, but it's not a deal breaker.
I also noticed that the coverage was very full, as I expected. I don't have bad skin to begin with but when I applied this foundation my skin looked flawless. It can be a bit thick, which I have heard many people complain about, but I prefer my foundation to be full coverage so it doesn't feel like any added weight onto my skin.
The only downside I've noticed is that it tends to turn a bit orange after awhile of wear. But you can easily avoid that by mixing a paler, thin foundation/bb cream into the foundation. I don't think I would have that problem at all if I would have gotten a lighter shade, but it's no big deal! It's not an everyday foundation for me but if I'm going somewhere and want a full face of makeup this is what I always reach for!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new, full coverage foundation. Just make sure you get color matched in-store! I will be repurchasing this product once I finish my current one.
