Final Thoughts
I got a sample of this from Nordstrom to test our. The shade is a perfect match for me which is extremely rare. I builds to full coverage which is what I prefer, but I still had some spot concealing to do. I tried it with 2 different powders, Coty & Sephora Collection, and it caked up with both of them. The Coty is matte and the Sephora Collection has a more luminous finish and it didn’t work with either. I know it’s the foundation because I’ve tried those powders with lots of other foundations and never had that problem. I could definitely play around with different combinations and make it work, but for $44, I want to be amazing. I like the formula, but it’s just not for me so it gets a MEH.
