Final Thoughts
–Shade is a little light for me (that never happens) but I made it work
–More natural than matte finish
–Full coverage in a flash
–So quick and easy to blend
–I tried this with several different powders to find the best combination
RCMA No Color Powder: foundation broke up and separated on my chin and around my mouth
NYX Can’t Stop Won’t Stop Pressed Powder: looked a little cakey
Jaclyn Cosmetics Last Act: broke up around my nose, overall looked heavy on my skin
–I just can’t seem to find the right combination of products to make this work. I tried different powders and primers
–I so badly wanted to love this one, but it just didn’t work out for me
–The Milani Cream-To-Powder Foundation is supposedly a dupe. I definitely don’t think they are a dupe BUT I’m reviewing it next Friday and spoiler alert, I like it a lot better and it’s a lot cheaper.
