        Absolutely love this product. Just switched from Smashbox BB cream that I have been using for years. I'm always concerned with a foundation accentuating my fine lines and this foundation DOESNT. I'm so thrilled and sold on the product.

        Shade matching can be an issue from how orange this foundation gets throughout the day. It has some fragrance but nothing offensive, it kind of smells like cake batter? I have combination skin but this product slides off everywhere and somehow makes my skin look even more greasy.

                  Did not like. It goes on easy, glides but coverage is not good and tried several different colors and none worked. Does not look natural and does not cover any flaws.

                    I bought this product because I had heard many great things about it. I'm so happy I got this foundation because it's perfect for my pale skin. I got the lightest option available and I couldn't be happier! It's easy to use concealer with and blends really nicely.

                        Hey Buxom Babe! This foundation is a lightweight formula with a satin finish. If you have combination skin it would work best in the drier areas of the face. For the oilier areas we recommend setting it with a powder for a more matte finish.
