Additional comments:
It is a very sheer foundation, not quite sheer as a tinted moisturizer. It has a bit more coverage than Mac f&B.
I loved the finish of this foundation: Not matte, not dewy, just in between: like healthy skin. It did not make my skin any more oilier nor any drier. It is a pretty unique foundation in the sense that it contains treatment (Polyhydroxy Acid Gluconolactone), and it is suitable for sensitive skins.
It had a decent staying power, not the best out there, but neither the worst. And the fact that its not heavy coverage, it won’t make a huge difference if it fades a bit.
It isn’t a *perfect* match for me, but I am ok with the shade.
