Final Thoughts
I got a sample of this from Sephora so I could test it before committing to a damn near $60 foundation. Therefore, I can’t speak to the “only need half a pump” claim because I just got a sample in a little plastic thing. It says you don’t need primer, but I always prime. I have to. I didn’t get instant full coverage. I did one layer and you could still see my redness. Two layers have full coverage. It clung to dry patches and just sit well on my chin and around my nose where my dryness is the worst. In the other areas where the rough, dry spots aren’t an issue, it looked flawless. I’m secretly glad I didn’t love it because $56 for a foundation is not for the faint of heart aka ME.
