              I upgraded from Ultra brand foundation to this brand and I have no regrets! I'm not the type of person to buy name brand stuff. I'm a poor college student that lives direct deposit to direct deposit. But, this product has changed my ways a little. I love it so much! It's light weight, stays on all day, easy to apply/blend, and there's many shades to match with your skin! I highly recommend this product. I do say you need to try it in stores before ordering a shade. It can be tricky to match your skin with it!

                  Haven't used it long enough to see about breakouts, but so far, so good. Can build on for more or less coverage.

                        So glad you're loving our foundations! Pixelated Color Eyelighter in Shade 02 for under eye takes care of darkness while adding a brightness. For your can't fail, old school concealer our line of Velvet Touch Concealers would be great. And not to forget Color Correcting! (Shade 01, yellow).
