Skin: Medium beige with some slightly acne, medium dark circle.
This product recommended by the sales counter, I decided to purchase MAC foundation C 40. My idea was to find high coverage foundation so I don't have to use tons of concealer. The sales counter used damp sponge and it did cover some marks perfectly. After using it for several months, I realised that this is not meant for me. It's too thick, and cakey. Whatever tools I used, ended up with streaks and very hard to blend specially with a brush. If using brush, it will dry up quickly and leave brush streaks all over my face and hard to remove. I recommend using a sponge with this product instead of a synthetic-hair makeup brush. I think its meant for oilier skins and people who are able to do their makeup more well (makeup guros). Too dry and one thing that annoys me the most is the smell. It smells like an expired milk(?). I have found some drugstore fonds that are way amazing finish with cheaper price than this one, the only problem with drugstore is their color variant are limited for warmer skin tones.
Pro: high coverage, picture friendly flawless looking blur effect, hide pores, very matte, long wearing, water proof, color variant
Con: packaging (no pump), smelly, dry, cakey, pricey, very hard to blend
I give this product 3.5 out of 5 stars
I recommend getting this cheaper alternative from E.L.F
