Additional comments:
Even thought it’s oil-free, it did not last on me at all. Granted, I am reviewing this foundation with a sunscreen underneath, but I am reviewing all my other foundations with the same skin care underneath. It also doesn’t offer a very decent coverage considering its creaminess/thickness of the product (this was rather disappointing as well). It also doesn’t feel like it ever ‘sets’, and can appear a bit caky. Perhaps you would get a better result with an mattifying primer undernearth rather than sunscreen. It feels ‘luxurious’, but I would rather keep this foundation for the cold winter nights. Even during winter, with my skin on its driest, it didn’t held that well.
Shade wise, its very much like MAC studio sculpt in NC 15. Oxidizes pretty much on the same way.
Consistency, its very like MAC studio sculpt.
