Final Thoughts
This shade is a bit too yellow for me, but I made it work. This is a thicker formula so I recommend using a sponge. I thought this was going to be a matte, cakey mess, but it doesn’t look bad at all. I built it up to full coverage and set with powder and it didn’t cake up. I definitely judged this and didn’t have high hopes for this and I was pleasantly surprised. This is cheap and worth trying!
