          I have used this product for 10 years. For extra coverage, I used to pair it with the Stila illuminating foundation but now I pair it with Tarte Ultramatte clay, and it's great. That said, I usually just use it by itself and just add a little water for a spot concealer. It also layers well.

              This is my everyday foundation and has been for years. I will never use another foundation, and it causes me great distress if it ever happens to be out of stock in my shade. I love the coverage that this supplies, I have some redness and this covers all of it. I always get complements on my skin when wearing this foundation. The subtle glow that this gives me is fantastic.

                      It says you can use this wet for more coverage, (they don't explain how to wet it and use though) Any suggestions or pointers on how to successfully do this?

                        A:

                        Yes, to apply "wet", using a dampened makeup applicator sponge, press and swirl into the powder, then apply all over the face until you've achieved your desired level of coverage.
