I'm always very skeptical when there is hype around a foundation, mostly because my skin type is very temperamental and all foundations wear quite badly on me throughout the day. When the bloggers-sphere went into meltdown over this product I still had my reservations, many were comparing it to Make Up Forever HD, and while that foundation is great when first applied I find it separates throughout the day, particularly around my oily t-zone.
All I can say, is this foundation for me is ten times better than MUFE HD. After wearing it across 3 full days of work (which for me consistent of 10 to 12 hour days at times), this foundation was resilient and was still on the skin, which for anyone who has an oily/combination skin type is a complete and utter unexpected win.
What makes me even happier, is it lasts on the face and it's not completely matte. There is nothing I hate more, than turning myself into a zombie with matte foundation only to have to bring my skin back to life using an excessive amount of contour, blush and highlight. This foundation is more of a satin, and reminds me very much of Nars Sheer Glow, but lasts a lot longer on the skin. The only slight negative is that you have to be careful when pumping out this product. One pump gives you a little bit too much product, but really that's a flaw I can live with. With half a pump, this product gives you the move amazing medium to full coverage on your skin.
Also, not that it matters for all people but this foundation is encased in a beautiful glass bottle, which just makes me feel a little extra special when using it each morning. I have to say you definitely need to give this a go if you have issues with your foundation lasting throughout the day.
