YUCK!! fyi I did redo my makeup that morning lol!

My verdict:

Let me start with the good:
The ingredients in this moisturizer are more than amazing. it is a very natural and chemical/junk-free foundation, and i believe this would not irritate my skin.
i have worn this on top of my usual moisturizer and i do not geel 'greasy' nor do i get more oily.
used as a base/primer under mineral foundation this looks almost flawless...but that beats the purpose of the all in one item here!

The not so good:
I must admit i have mixed feelings about this tinted moisturizer.  I wanted to love it, to adore it as much as i do my BB creams but i just cant.  First, i got the wrong shade (Peach Bisque) and should have been one shade lighter...however, it does blend nicely and can hardly tell. just wish their swatches were more accurate.
this adds more to my routine, since i have to use a light buffing of mineral foundation to get a mediocre coverage...This product also offers sheer to medium coverage, and in my case, i could not get it to cover more, all i got was a very sheer wash of color. not good =(  no this is not savimg my time in the morning!

Although this is a great product and company (geesh, i remember when i used to order from them and they were not this popular....they used to give out lots of samples with every order lol) i am not thrilled about this item, and for $32 i would be pissed off lmbo!  Bottom line is that i will not repurchase at all...lucky me i got this when Haute Look had it for $9 =D

As for me, i am sticking to my regular mineral foundation with the occasional drugstore/budget finds and to my beloved and well treasured BB Creams,  nothing beats Missha perfect cover and Skin79 BB creams!!!
