This foundation provides light to medium coverage, without the option to layer as it can leave your face with a cake-y effect. It is smooth and velvety to apply; an absolute pleasure to do so whether you are doing so with your fingers, a brush or a sponge. The whipped formula really is a dream. The matte effect I feel is only valid for a few hours. For someone with oily skin like myself, I would like it to remain matte a bit longer (I often have to touch-up with some powder at some time in the day).
If you are looking for a cheaper option, you can also look at the essence mousse. I personally see no difference between the two and have started buying the essence one because it is cheaper. The colour range is wider than the essence range. I had the misfortune of buying a colour too dark and have thus started using this product as a contour shade rather than a foundation.
A downside is the shape of the bottle it comes in as it is sometimes difficult to get the last bits of the product from the edges. Overall, I would recommend this product.
