Final Thoughts
You get medium coverage with one layer and full with two. I could not get this to stay on my nose. This happens sometimes, but usually between a brush and a sponge, I can make something work. Not with this one! It looked SO cakey with and without being set with powder. It did have good coverage though, it covered all my redness with 2 layers. The first day I tried it, it made me SO oily. I looked in the mirror and my forehead was shining. I rummaged in my purse and found an oil blotting sheet and was shocked. My skin has not needed an oil blotting sheet or even gotten oily in YEARS. It was just AWFUL on my dry skin. The next time I tried it, I thought extra prep and moisturizing would help. NOPE. I love the original Photo Focus Foundation that is liquid, but this was a major FAIL.


Day 1
Too Faced Hangover Rx Primer
elf Blur Stick
Milani Prep+Set+Glow Powder
*This is my usual primer/powder combo that works well with almost every foundation I use and try*

Sorry if this is gross, but look how oily this foundation made me. I was SO shiny. My skin is dry AF and I never get oily.

You can see how it’s not clinging to my nose and how it just looks cakey and bad. My skin just looked like it was begging for moisture.
