Final Thoughts
I had to use a white mixer to make this shade work for me. It caked on my upper lip and around my mouth with the Coty powder. It definitely looked better with the Laura Geller luminous powder, It separated and broke up around my eye brows and nose with the Coty powder. It’s slightly scented, but it smells good to me and doesn’t bother me. If you’re sensitive to fragrance, keep that in mind. This covered my redness and built up easily. From a distance it looks fine, but when I look up close in the mirror, I can see the separation and where it’s broken up. I love the finish and the coverage, but for $45, I want to LOVE everything about it and have a shade that matches me. This might work better not set with powder, but powder is a step I can’t skip. I don’t have time to wait for foundation to set on it’s own. I powder to lock it in place and go. It’s also broke me out so this is a solid pass for me.

I thought I had the right AM shot, but apparently not. This is the PM though and if you zoom in you can see the separation.
