Final Thoughts
The shade I purchased, 800 Fair Ivory, matches initially, but there is some slight oxidation. I will add a little bit of white mixer when I use this in the future. The coverage is medium, but buildable. I got high medium coverage with two layers. I love the satin, natural finish, but it is slightly tacky so I recommend setting with a powder. I wear SPF anyway (so should you), but I love the additional SPF this provides. There is a slight scent, but it’s nice and doesn’t linger. I didn’t test this for 24 hours, but it lasted all day and held up well. I think they might be discontinuing this, but if you can find it, it’s worth trying!
