When applied, it feels great, its gorgeous, smooths the skin, has a decent coverage for its purpose (non mask effect, luminous), but it never completely ‘sets’, in the sense that you can still feel a bit of moistness in your skin. After its maximal ‘setting’, it oxidizes, perhaps not THAT darker, but to a weird yellowish-peachy undertone.
Swatches & Pictures:
As you can tell…the shade is pretty dark and oxidizes to a strange yellow/peachy undertone.
I have the impression it doesn’t photograph that well unless you are a good match for the shade.
It does appear muddy/patchy once it ‘sets’ (aka oxidizes).
