I feel it gives me enough coverage to not feel completely naked. I think it also works well as a primer underneath my usual foundation (I use L’Oreal LumiMagique). On days when it’s particularly warm, using them together makes my skin feel overly oily though, so I tend to only use the two together if my skin is feeling a bit tight. In my experience, it does deliver on these promises, although with regards to evening tone, I do sometimes wish it could it slightly better, but then I remind myself that it’s not a foundation, it’s essentially a tinted moisturiser, but better :) It definitely hydrates, not sure I wouldn’t recommend it for oily skin though. At around R80, it’s also quite a bargain!
