if I could define it…it would be powder in a liquid form; not in a bad way. It is very mattifying; one of the most I have ever encountered in a liquid form.
It has a very fresh feel yet it is luxurious for a matte liquid formula, very easy to blend and leaves a nice fresh matte look. If you have combination skin, you can skip powder, if you have oily skin: I recommend powdering, unless you are fine with a slight glow after a few hours.
Coverage: you will still need concealer to cover pimples and hyperpigmentation. This is not really fantastic coverage wise, it simply evens out the skin tone while controlling oil production.
The downside: it does oxidize (starts at NC10 deepens up to a NC12-14, depending on skin) and it can set on pores/flakiness.

Shall we help Mr. Zombie here with his dilemma?
Yes! It did get darker after 5 minutes, as you can see in the picture. (Darker aka yellow-er)
