                      This is my favorite foundation. I've used it for years and years and can't bring myself to try a cheaper drugstore brand. It's not super mattifying, but it's just right for what I like. The coverage depends of how much you use - a little is light coverage, a lot is heavy coverage.

                        I have fair skin with pink undertones, what shade should I use? I use Alabaster in Even Better but it is slightly darker than my skin. Would Alabaster match better in this foundation?
