I picked this up on a whim at Sephora.  As usual, I struggled to get help at Sephora, and when I did, I ended up with 250C.  They didn’t have my shade.  This is a problem occurring at much different brick and mortar Sephora stores.  The foundation itself is in a standard glass bottle, containing the expected amount of product.

The foundation itself applies easily, although I was in a shade that wasn’t correct ( Sephora didn’t have my exact shade which was precisely one shade lighter than I purchased) I found this to be so amazingly yellow on my skin.  It honestly looked awful on the application.  That said, it applied beautifully, dried down quickly, worked with and without powder as well as a primer.  Two thumbs way up; and a chef’s kiss.  This product lasted all day with the yellow undertone fading around the 4-hour mark, and the foundation actually looked quite natural.  Not a perfect match, but close.

The coverage was buildable, light/medium.  I could still see my trouble spots, but they appeared to be less.  The trouble spot was under my eyes, which looked dried out and crepey.  If you wish to emphasize each and every line, this is a great way to do it.  I love the foundation, and I think it would be great if you can find your correct shade.  The finish is matte/satin to start with and a wee bit shiny by the end of the day.  It is definitely worth a try if this is in your budget range.
