                I love it! Way better than the cheap covergirl and revlon makeup I was using. Gives you a glowy effect and leaves your skin flawless. Matches my skin tone perfect and doesnt take more than 3 pumps for full coverage of myy face and i love it.

                      Color match was nice but too sheer. I like a sheer to medium buildable coverage but this is not buildable and doesn't look like I even put make up on my face.

                        It doesnt have a full coverage affect if your broken out & if you have oily skin, it makes it worse. It was ok when i tried it on in the store but using it as an all day foundation it doesnt work.

                            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).
