Final Thoughts
I really wish this would have worked out because it’s the perfect shade for me. One layer is light coverage and two layers gives you solid, medium coverage. I did 2 layers and it covered my redness, but you could still some imperfections peeking through. It caked up around my nose and mouth and above my brow. It also broke up in several areas. I tried several different powder and primer combos hoping to make this work, but it’s just a fail for me.
