Final Thoughts
–Ulta exclusive
–Shade range is trash
–Light to medium coverage, it’s buildable but you won’t get full/high coverage with this. It covered my redness, but you could still see freckles/skin showing through
–Impressed that you get a mirror and a sponge for $5.99
–Wore off on my chin, but held up pretty well otherwise
–Prefer the J Cat Beauty Aquasurance Powder Foundation, it has better coverage and a more flawless finish
