Final Thoughts
This looked HORRIBLE on my dry skin. I think it might because I used powder to set it, but it felt so tacky so I had to. I can’t stand the feeling of a tacky foundation and I’m not waiting around for a foundation to set. My blush and bronzer would definitely not have blended over top had I not set it with powder. I got full coverage with 2 layers and I prefer full coverage so that was a positive. However, this was a total fail for me. I’m so glad I got a sample at Sephora to try before buying!
