Overall this product is quite effective as a foundation for those who don't want a heavy look or feel to their makeup. This foundation comes in a 4 oz. compact style container with a twist off top in which the makeup itself is contained in the small glass container, with the bottom of the container opening like a facial powder compact to reveal a sponge applicator. I like this concept as it ensures the sponge used to apply the foundation isn't left to sit on top of the makeup. Using the applicator, the foundation has a cool, moist feel to it as you apply it. I've found that the coverage is quick to accomplish in just quick taps of the sponge against the skin. Then using the sponge to blend the foundation results in an almost non-tell tale appearance. I find that exfoliating and proper skin preparation (washing/moisturizing or using a primer product prior to application) seems to ensure the application is smooth and flawless but long lasting.

This foundation is a little thicker than those you'd buy in tubes or bottles so be forewarned, gobbing this on with just your fingers will no doubt leave you disappointed. I've found that just dabbing lightly into the foundation with the applicator and not putting too much on works perfectly. It goes on quickly and it's one less thing I need to worry about spending a lot of time on now. Once on, it feels very light and actually works great as a concealer and foundation in one...so I am able to cut down my steps by not needing to apply concealer (yay!).

I believe that it might actually accentuate faces that are more lined despite the fact this foundation is meant to "suspend" above fine lines and wrinkles and not cause them to be pronounced. On faces with little to no lines or wrinkles or really well conditioned skin however, this foundation is a very nice selection. The foundation does include an SPF22 sunscreen protection though for added protection against harmful UV rays.

Overall, for $16.88 this is a great product in my opinion and one that I'm really glad I decided to buy. For anyone who is looking for a nice, quick to apply, long lasting - both on the face and in the container type of makeup product that is easy to take with you and securely sealed for those treks, I think I can honestly say this one is worth the purchase provided you take the time to prepare your skin for it and use it with a light touch.
