Comments: The shade was a good match. I can go 1 shade darker. This isn’t my first time trying it out. I had to try this foundation out 3 X. The stick is very dry compared to my other stick foundation. 1st time – I used a moisturizer that I normally don’t test with and the foundation looked horrible. 2nd time – I did a different face routine and it looked even worse. This time I did a normal routine and it did look better. I had trouble during the first layer with the foundation staying around my nose and chin area. I applied a total of two layers and it almost even out my complexion. My redness and acne on my cheeks still peeked through. I give this a light coverage. During the concealer process, the foundation kept wiping off where the beauty blender touched it. 4th hour, the foundation faded around my nose and under eye. My forhead area is a bit oily but it wasn’t too bad. It wasn’t hot outside either. If you are a face toucher, this is a pass for you. By the 8th hour, my forhead is really oily and I noticed the foundation sink into my forhead lines. Around my mouth area it emphasize my dry skin. By the 10 hour, I don’t think it looked horrible. Just some fading around the nose and under eye. If I touched my face then the foundation would transfer. For claims of this foundation, I disagree that is meant for all skin type and that it applies flawless. It can be long lasting to people who don’t touch their face. I did set my t area and top of my nose. If i touched anywhere on my face it would transfer. It was very tedious to apply this foundation b/c it kept fading where anything touches it. Overall, I say it is a pass for me because it was just the tedious part of applying it. The other area of my face held up well throughout the day.
