Final Thoughts
When I picked this up, I didn’t realize it said “sheer” coverage. I’m not a sheer coverage kind of gal. Thankfully, it builds nicely and you get high medium coverage. I could still my freckles peeking through, but it covered my redness. This isn’t a full coverage formula though. The dropper packaging can be messy, but the end result makes it worth it. It has a dewy finish, even when set with powder. My upper lip got a little cakey with powder, but what’s new. I wore this for 12+ hours and wore a mask and it held up well. I had a good makeup day when I wore this foundation and that makes it a win for me. I just wish the packaging was better and that it wasn’t so expensive. I really like this one!
