          Best foundation...especially for my age- I am 46. I love the way it goes on light and smooth, but has great coverage. It doesn't feel like I have anything on. Such a satin finish. I have been using it for about a year.
          I recommended it to my sister, who is 52 years old, and now she LOVES it and has been using it for months.
          At our age, we wanted something that covers, but does not look heavy nor "cakey"...And I recommend this to anyone, especially for those like me that want a more natural look. < 3 love love

                I am Indian and to find a foundation that matches my skin perfectly is always tough, but bare sand is absolutely perfect! This foundation is affordable when you are looking at higher end brands, and it lasts a long time. Very little is needed to cover the entire face and it blends very smoothly. The best part is that it stays matte!

                    Golden Ivory-Light skin golden tones
                    Golden Nude-Medium skin golden tones
                    Honeycomb-Tan skin golden tones
