*- Tested by Stars like Fergie and Lady GaGa”s, now their favorite foundation
– Colors are a bit off, especially if you”re Asian, they are missing a more “yellow” shade. You have to mix some yellow pigment into it.
Colors are more neutral based. See my swatch below to see what I”m referring to.
– Lacking darker colors too! More colors are launching this 2010 year however.
– The samples you order have this serious leak problem. Make sure you keep it in a seal bag to prevent it getting everywhere.
No, I personally don”t use it for everyday wear, my skin doesn”t require it. This isn”t the best choice for my skin. My t-zone is oily and especially if I”m working I don”t have time to blot it and keep it from over shining. The color is very pink/neutral on my skin.
I would recommend it if you:
1) Have a lot of discoloration uneven skin (see first picture below).
2) Don”t require a yellow base (“non-asian” skintone)
3) Your skin is dry/flaky, it will make it so smooth! If your skin secretes a lot of oil on a regular basis, don”t add more shine.
4) Mature skin, gives you a youthful glow
Yes! Will purchase again. Excellent pigment coverage, saves on time. Can be great on camera with right technique.
