                  I have true porcelain toned skin, and LG delivers the PERFECT match, with this baked beauty!!!
                  I have combination skin & it works well for me in this regard as well. During colder months, when my skin needs more hydration, I may use this as my finishing powder. In hotter months, I will use directly over my primer, plus it is buildable, which is nice...Either way, it has the MOST LOVELY, Subtle Illumination of any foundation or finishing powder. Thank you, Laura! ;)

                    This product made my skin look surprisingly airbrushed. My pores disappeared! If you use cream concealers, blushes, highlights, or contours, I would recommend either applying them before or switching to a powder version while using this foundation, because it doesn't blend well with wet products on top

                        Hi! I have mild rosacea and am looking for a good foundation. I am reading the reviews and this looks like a good one. How is the coverage? Does this work as just a foundation or will I need to buy a foundation as well?

                          A:

                          This is a foundation that delivers medium-buildable coverage. It usually does a great job at cutting away redness and covering mild rosacea. I would recommend using an under makeup primer (try our Spackle Primer in Spackle Soothing- see link below!) first. This will start to tone down any redness and will hold the foundation on, keeping it looking fresh all day long. Enjoy!

                          Because this product is made up of multi-pigmented swirls of color, it is an extremely forgiving product. Based on the information given to me, it seems like Golden Medium should be perfect for you. Please see the link below to our foundation shade finder... this should help you greatly!

                          I am sorry, this does not come with a brush. I recommend using a larger, fluffy brush... something like a Kabuki brush. Keep in mind- the more dense the brush, the more pigments it will grab, and the more coverage it will deliver. Enjoy!

                          If you would like to use this wet, I recommend lightly spraying a large fluffy brush with some water. A light mist will do, it will not work the best if it is soaking wet. Spray your brush, dip into the compact, and buff onto the skin. Enjoy!

                          If you are on the lighter end of the medium spectrum, definitely try the light. This has lots of yellow swirls but isn't too yellow. If you are on the deeper end of the spectrum, try the golden medium. From experience, I have not found this shade to be too yellow at all. Enjoy!

                          A:

                          You can always try using the medium and if it's too dark, apply one more layer in the porcelain on top of the medium to deepen it. These products are extremely forgiving, so you'll never have a line of demarkation under your jaw. Please see the link below to our foundation shade finder:
