Final Thoughts
–One layer=light coverage, two layers=medium coverage
–I had several active (RED!) breakouts when I tested and I wanted additional coverage so I did some spot concealing with my Too Faced concealer
–Great add in/mixer to add in more matte foundations for added hydration
–If you like light/medium coverage, you’ll love this. I just prefer more coverage.
–You can’t beat the price and the formula is great
