There are 45 shades to choose from (chances are you’ll find a good match) and for just $14.00 a tube you can’t go wrong.
What I like most about the formula is the consistency. The pigment is liquidy (be careful when squeezing the it out) but the fluidity is what makes it easy to spread and blend. You get a smooth, even-toned finish with lightweight medium coverage.
Last weekend I put it to the test and my family agreed that the skin-like finish looks natural with no harsh undertones. The color is buildable with no caking or creasing and it doesn’t clog pores.
Based on the name I expected radiance and dewiness but the foundation is quite matte with no glow or luminosity. I like that there is no shine (shimmer is being overused these days) and hours after application my makeup still looks freshly applied.
My shade is Warm Honey 15.9. It has a golden base with a hint of yellow to diminish discoloration.
If you’re looking for an affordable everyday foundation with just enough coverage this is a great option.
