Final Thoughts
My friend gave me this to try and I thought the shade might work, but it was just a little too dark. I mixed the Makeup Revolution Ghost powder in and made it work. You can build it up to medium coverage, but that’s as full as it gets. You can still the redness on my chin peeking through. To get a more full coverage look, I recommend using a flat top brush to buff the product into the skin. If you want a more sheer look, use a fluffier, powder brush to just sweep over the skin. It’s perfect paired with a little concealer for light makeup days. Powder foundation can look rough on dry skin, but I really like how this one looked. This a great product and I recommend it!

You can see that it’s just a little too dark/off for me in shade Ivory 1.
