This product is quite effective. It provides long-lasting coverage. It is meant to provide a just applied long-lasting finish, allowing the wearer to have a flawless looking complexion. I think that it does provide a silky finish. However, it is a bit heavy and leaves you looking like you are wearing a mask. I like the packaging. It is a sturdy bottle, which clearly states the name of the product. I like that the packaging is clear, so you can easily identify the colour of the foundation. It is very lightly scent, which reminds me of a moisturiser. The texture is very smooth and creamy. It spreads very easily and a little goes a long way. I personally did not like it, as even though a little goes a long way and spreads easily, it made me look like I was wearing a mask. I would recommend it to anyone who wants maximum coverage. If you prefer a more natural looking foundation, then this may not be for you.
