    Perfect base to even out my skin. It was hard for me to find a good match and this was my perfect tone. Haven't had a breakout since using this and I usually get a lot of them! Just goes to show its quality make up and worth the extra money.

                    I really wanted to like this product. I have used bare minerals in the past and was excited to try this foundation. My skin is on the dry side, with some fine lines. I found this did not blend well and just "sat" on my skin and sank into those little lines I have. I was disappointed with the product and returned it :(
                    So, I would not recommend for mature or dry skin types.
