“An innovative longwearing foundation w/ skin-balancing oil control & hydration. Infused w/ our Balance Boost Complex, this powerful blend of ingredients features Hyaluronic Acid for instant & 24-hour hydration as well as Adaptogens that help skin work like an automatic thermostat to balance levels of oil & hydration. This skincare-powered foundation improves skin balance instantly & over time. The buildable formula delivers medium-to-full coverage & a freshly applied, natural-looking finish. It visibly evens skin tone, reducing the appearance of redness, blemishes, & imperfections. Primer-infused for 16-hour, color-true wear, this liquid foundation won’t cake, flake or streak for 16 hours & is water, sweat, humidity, crease, settle & transfer-resistant.

…dermatologist-tested, non-acnegenic, appropriate for all skin types, vegan, & cruelty-free.”

I requested the shade L20-N (Level-two light w/ a neutral undertone) &, while it was too dark and warm on me, I made it work w/ the addition of a lighter concealer to balance it all out. It blended out easily w/ a damp sponge (my preferred application method) & the coverage, with the amount I used (around two (2) pumps for my entire face), was medium. What impressed me the most was the oil control! I’ve been a little lazy when it comes to my skincare routine lately, so it did cling, initially, to a couple of dry patches I had. However, as soon as it warmed up to my skin, those disappeared, & what remained was an oil-free, but not lifeless, look! If you want a foundation that won’t make you look greasy w/out having to use a mattifying primer or a ton of powder & that lasts all day & then some, look no further!
