Additional comments:
I didn’t swatch the lightest shade available (01 Mat Porcelain), because my sample was in shade 3. I think shade 1 would be wonderfully pale.
It felt and looked fantastic in my opinion, and photographs pretty well. I had the impression my pores looked way smaller after applying this foundation, and it did control oil pretty nicely.
