The short of it: Not for the fair complected or oily skinned.

The claims: Instantly blends into skin for a flawless look; Shine-free look that lasts all day; Oil-free formula won’t clog pores

The long of it: I gave this foundation a solid two weeks before returning it. The lightest shade I could find, 105 Classic Ivory, turned orange on me within an hour. It applied evenly and looked like “my-skin-but-better.” It wasn’t powdery or cakey, it didn’t smell weird, and while it wasn’t mattifying by any stretch of the imagination, it seemed to be an easy out-the-door-to-run-errands-or-grab-lunch foundation with light to medium coverage. A no fuss product for those days when I wanted an even complexion without committing to wearing a full-coverage all day foundation.

But.

Orange.
