First off, the texture of this foundation is surprisingly refined for such a well priced foundation - it's silky, almost as silky as Armani's Maestro Foundation, and spreads very easily over the face. I found that a whole pump is far too much - a half pump, or a little more if you really like to buff it into the face with a brush, will do just fine. Once applied, the finish is very natural and velvety - it's not a true matte foundation, but it isn't dewy or shimmery either. It wears well, too - I need a bit of powder on my t-zone after three hours, but otherwise it holds well for a full day.
Lovely, eh? This is a foundation which definitely packs a punch bigger than its price tag. Find it at Boots now.
