Additional comments:
Consistency-wise, its very watery, very liquid-ish. It didn’t surprise me since the foundation is a cellular ’emulsion’.
The undertone is a bit hard to pinpoint. On my forearm it translates as a pinky-peachy, yet when on my face…it seems to get a tad more yellowish.
I have liked the consistency / feel of this foundation, and its definitely way better than its more expensive sibling Caviar skin foundation.
The biggest issue with this foundation is the oxidation.
