Final Thoughts
–1 layer=medium coverage, 2 layers=full
–Shade C0.5 is a perfect match for me
–By the end of the day, I didn’t love how it looked up close. However, from a distance, it still looked pretty good
–Don’t necessarily agree with the hydration claim
–I tried it again and mixed it with Morphe2 Skin Tint to add some hydration and I used to a primer to fill my smile lines and I liked it so much better
–I’ve tried so many combinations of primers, mixing different foundation, etc. and I still can’t makeup up my mind as to whether or not it’s a definite yes or no
