Pros: natural looking, easy to find perfect match, blendable
Cons: pricey, if it wasn't on sale and w/out a coupon
I have a hard time finding the right shade for my foundation at a drug store. If I don't get the right kind, my face turns orangy-red due to my undertones. I was told at a fancy cosmetic counter that I needed to buy yellow-based foundations. Since I couldn't determine this at the drugstore, I went with purchasing my foundation at the department store and ended up spending more money than I really needed to.
I always saw the display at my local drugstore, and I always I tried that transparent shade finder provided. After debating for a long time, I picked what I hoped to be the right shade (W3) and purchased it since 1. I had a $2.00 off coupon and 2. it was on sale at Target for $6.99. What do I have to loose?
The stock was low so I wasn't able to find W3 so I was about to give up when I saw that they were selling a foundation/powder bonus pack at the end of the aisle. I ended up purchasing that for $13.99.
It went on smoothly and it was very blendable. No visible line of where the foundation stopped. It looked very natural and it even out my skin quite well. I used too much at first and used powder so I looked a little too made-up but when I tried it the next day, I used less and it still was able to even out my skin and look good.
I would definitely buy this product again when I run out.
