I really love this foundation – it smells great, blended smoothly, and covers SO well. However, it\’s not as matte as advertised. I have combo-oily skin and by hour 5 I had to pat down my forehead. Even still, it looks beautiful and feels luxurious all while staying on my face from 6 am to the late hours of the night. The first time wearing, I decided to try without primer to see how it wears alone.. it showed a bit of texture/pores, but nothing adding that extra step wouldn\’t fix. I would recommend this as a great special occasion makeup for a light weight full coverage feel.
