Final Thoughts
I thought with the shade name “Porcelain,” I’d get a shade match. WRONG. I had to use a good amount of white mixer to get this to work. I was really impressed with the coverage and wear time though. I hate the shade range is so bad! If there’s a shade match for you and you have acne prone skin, go for it! I’m not approved because there isn’t a shade match for me and I’m too lazy to be mixing foundation every day.
