Final Thoughts
If you like full coverage, you need to pass on this one. One layer is light coverage and you can build up to medium coverage with 2 layers. It builds nicely and doesn’t cake up. You don’t get a lot of product on the wand and I had to dip in several times. I used a green corrector on a few red spots, but nonetheless, it still covered all of my redness. I stippled it on with the Sonia Kashuk foundation brush and then went over it with a sponge to smooth out the finish. It worked well with my other complexion products and didn’t cake when set with powder. I like this and approve it, but it is expensive for the drugstore. There are cheaper drugstore foundations that work just as well. However, if you prefer light to medium coverage, I think this one is worth trying.

Primers: Urban Decay b6, CYO Illuminating Cream + Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Hydrating  (I do a pump of each, mix with my fingers, and apply), Revlon Pore Reducing
Powder: LOreal Hydra Perfecte
Tools: Sonia Kashuk Flat Top Foundation Brush, Sonia Kashuk Sponge
