Pros: mattifies well
Cons: creases, doesn' adapt to skin tone, dries out skin, emphasizes peeling, not long-wearing, pricey

Hi everyone,

I purchased this foundation specifically for working in front of the camera. The brand is quite popular among makeup artists.

My skin: combination skin with constant singular breakouts, oily T-zone and flaky cheeks. It’s light with a pronounced pink undertone.

I chose the shade 20. When purchasing, it seemed to me that it will match my skin tone perfectly in summer. Oh, I was so wrong!

I applied it to my skin by daylight and saw a disgusting orange tone. After that I rushed to the store again to pick up the lightest shade 15 to mix them together and be happy with the results I would get! It was so stupid of me.

My opinion about the shade 20:

  • The color is awful and may fit only desperate indoor-tanning-enthusiasts!

  • Dries out my skin so much

  • Emphasizes dry patches

  • Clogs my pores


  • Mattifies my skin for real

  • Doesn’t crease

This shade looked so bad, but at least it had some minor pros, but the shade 15 is just a disaster!


My opinion about the shade 15:

  • The coverage reminds me of chalk

  • The coverage is so thick that it is impossible to spread out. No sponge, brush and even fingers can cope with it.

  • Dries out my skin incredibly

  • Emphasizes flakey bits

  • Creases in about an hour and a half or two

  • Clogs my pores

The mix of two shades:

Dead duck! This is one and the same foundation, but the formulas are so different that it’s hardly possible to blend them together. Moreover, such a mix applies streaky.


Final thoughts

The thing that two shades do not blend with each other is unacceptable for professional makeup products! This foundation is of such bad quality, but the price is actually hefty!

I definitely don’t recommend you try it. More than that, I warn you not to test it.


Thank you all for reading.
