Final Thoughts
–Very emollient formula, I recommend setting with powder
–Light to medium coverage. I did two layers and you could still see freckles/skin peeking through
–I wouldn’t recommend this for oily skin
–I didn’t use a pore filling primer, I don’t always, and it really emphasized my huge pores which I didn’t love
–I feel like you don’t get a lot of product and since it’s so creamy, it will go fast
–Does everything it claims, but it’s not my favorite
