Final Verdict
First of all, when they say mini, they mean mini. This is the tiniest product I have ever seen! I saw the shade name, “Fair Cool,” and got excited because that is how I would describe my skin tone, but it was too dark. I had to use a white mixer and a TON of product to get full coverage. It reminds me of my favorite drugstore foundation, Rimmel Lasting Finish Breathable (review here), and it’s much cheaper, a better shade match, and I get better coverage. It’s not a bad product, but not a game changer either. If you’re looking for a light to medium coverage, check out the Rimmel and save some monies!
