Final Thoughts
–CD :: This is a full coverage formula so if that’s not your preference, skip it. You can sheer it out by using a sponge or lighter amount, but even still, you’ll get medium coverage. I apply one layer with a brush and them press it in which a sponge. This is my all-time favorite foundation and I’m currently on my 4th or 5th bottle. F0.5 is my PERFECT shade match. I’ve tried over 100 foundations and this is the best match. I’ve worn this with no issue when I had oily and dry skin so I think it will work for all skin types.

–SD :: This product really took me by surprise. I expected sheer to light coverage, but I was able to build it to medium coverage. I did two layers and stippled it in with a brush to maximize the coverage, then I pressed it in with my sponge. It’s super lightweight and undetectable on the skin. I was dealing with some breakouts and it covered them pretty well and covered my redness. It’s great for light makeup days or to just even out your skin tone. I really didn’t expect to like this so much.

–Mixed :: I thought this mixture would be perfection, but it didn’t quite go that way. Adding the Superdewy to the Conceal & Define helped make it more hydrating and less matte, but kept the fuller coverage that I prefer. The finish and coverage get an A+, but the way it caked up in some areas and was patchy in others makes it a no for me. The products don’t do that when used independently so I know it’s the combination of the products.
