The foundation gives a matte effect and fantastic coverage over redness and spots. The color matched my skin perfectly however that may change depending on skin type. I found the product easy to apply with just my hands however I have notice that after a full day of wear the foundation can go some what dry and causes flakiness on the face. I also wouldn't say that it is long lasting - 5 hours maximum would be my best guess.
This is so nice on my face. It blends so well. I don't really wear foundation as a rule but this is dark enough to cover blemishes and light enough for the natural look I love it and would highly recommend. I have a light brown completion definitely buy again
