Shade: For Reference, I am neutral toned with quite fair skin about NC20. I got shade Vanilla as I figured it was the best bet. It fits my skin tone perfectly. No oxidisation happened on my skin.
Packaging: Sleek and simple with a pump which is great for hygiene. Cap can be a bit fiddly.
Scent: There is a very strong red forest berry scent to it. Its not horrible, it smells quite decadent but if you're not a fan of fragranced products i'd say stay away. Although the scent quickly dissipates after you apply it to your whole face and let it set.
Formula: I read from other reviews that this is more suitable for people with few blemishes to begin with because it is just so light weight. I bought this so that i could use it on good skin days. i must say that it is very true. It doesn't cover much, if any at all. It does a better job at smoothing out your skin tone. So shadows and removing a bit of redness.
I have a very comprehensive skin care regimen and all the times I've used this, it has emphasised dry spots i never knew i had. I used a standard, real techniques buffing brush and another time with a beauty blender (which soaks up way too much product) and both times even before setting with powder, there are just dry spots where the foundation clings to. I have an oily T-zone which is where the foundation began to break apart after about 2.5-3hours wear time.
Powder, Blush, bronzer and highlight does not sit well on top of it.
TLDR; Buy this if you have perfect skin with discolouration.
I seen a YouTube talk about this foundation and I am so in love. Had buy it from here because I live in California and they don't have it here. It was so worth the wait and I love it smells good and gives good coverage
This foundation smells amazing and has a beautiful finish. It has medium coverage and therefore works well for everyday use. My suggestion to someone using it would be to put a light dusting of powder on top so as the foundation would not feel too sticky on the face in humid conditions. Other than that, the foundation lasts a good amount of hours, it is very hydrating on dry skin, and does not end up looking patchy.
