      I really wish there was more of a variety. I feel as though the foundation is mostly catered to light and medium tones. It really sucks because I really liked the foundation, however, it was either too light or too dark for my complexion.

            I use it every day. I have really red skin, and this covers it up very well. My only complaint is that it is quite heavy, and ends up becoming patchy in any oily spots after a couple hours. But it looks awesome in air conditioning for 5 hours or so!

                  Yes, it has Amazonian clay which is a total skin balancing ingredient that works across skin types. If you have dry skin, it helps hydrate & if you have oily skin, it helps absorb excess oil. Enjoy!

                How long does this foundation last after opening? I'm thinking of buying a dark shade to mix into my lighter shades for the summer, but i don't think I'll use a whole bottle in one summer. Will it expire if I try to use the same bottle for 2 years in a row?
