It's difficult to find the right tint. Seemed like the few I've tried from this company made my skin dry out and also look ashy.

    Great medium to full coverage foundation. Doesn't break me out which a lot of products do. Goes on smoothly and lasts all day. I only touch up 1 time a day and that's because I'm oily and am a hair stylist and work with hot tools.

This is the only foundation I've found that provides nearly full coverage without looking totally cakey/over the top. It's natural and it blends well. Love it love it love it
