I really can't fault this product. (Bit of a spoiler there)
I thought the pump bottle was lovely, very simple. It matches the rimer I was trying beautifully, they look like a classy duo.
1-2 pumps was more than enough for an even coverage, so I imagine this will last a good few months, I use foundation 2-3 times a week.
The product is a lovely smooth consistency. It smells like...skin care. I definitely believe there's a serum in there!
When I first applied it I was concerned by the fullness of the coverage, but it buffs out well to a medium coverage. Definitely build-a-ble from medium coverage up. It didn't sink into my lines or pores, nor cling to my dry patches in my nose crevices.
The feel on my skin was light, and my skin felt quite natural to touch. I felt hydrated, despite the somewhat matte finish - so again, it must be the serum in there?
I tried this with and without the Miracle Smooth Primer. Without - matte, quite 'flat' finish. Lasted well, but by about 5pm on coming home from work it was past best. With - a dewy, lighter finish. Lasted until my evening shower at around 9pm. The application of the foundation over the primer was just so ridiculously smooth.
All-in-all this is a really, really lovely foundation to use. It's adaptable in it's coverage, and using the primer you can change the finish. Even without the primer it lasts well (and in heat, did I mention it lasted well in the heat?!) . Does the skin care/serum inside act as an anti-ageing product? I dunno, with daily use maybe, but you definitely feel there is something 'extra' to this foundation.
So yeah, really happy. It feels like a super-high-end foundation, so at $40, will buy again!
