Final Thoughts
I got a a sample of this with a Sephora order and Y205 ended up being a perfect match for me. I was hesitant to try this since it has “Matte” in the name, but it looked good on my dry skin and didn’t dry me out or cling to dry patches. It was really easy to blend in, didn’t feel heavy, and lasted all day. It also gave full coverage, which is what I prefer. It also worked well with my concealers and powders. I’ve got several foundations that I’m working through so I’m not going to buy the full size right now, but I definitely would purchase it.

Primer: First Aid Beauty Coconut Smoothie, Catrice Smoothing Refiner
Powder: Hourglass Veil
Tools: Artis dupe and beautyblender
