I had limited myself to only lipsticks and eye liners from this brand, but this time I gave a shot to many different products, including this foundation.
About the Looks!
It comes in a round transparent glass container with a black cap. The cap comes with a spatula attached, which is really great! It controls the amount of foundation and minimizes wastage! The bottom of the bottle has the shade number, quantity and bar code, etc. The packaging is good, but yes, we have to be careful about the glass for obvious reasons.

My experience and views about this foundation!
The foundation has a very good consistency, its neither watery, creamy nor very thick. Its the consistency of any summer body lotion. The feel is satiny with no scent what-so-ever. I got this one especially for winters as my skin tends to get a little dry during this time. I wanted to try out some water based foundations to keep my skin moisturized and give a dewy glow.
You need to start with a lesser amount and gradually build it up. It blends really well and gets soaked in the skin after proper blending giving a natural finish. But then comes the part that I don’t like.
The foundation does solves the purpose of not being of matte finish, but its too glossy or shiny for me. It gives a watery shine on the face which makes me look a little greasy. I have to use a little bit of more pressed powder to get rid of that shine, which in turn makes my face look a little cakey. The foundation itself is very light, but with the building up to get the coverage and usage of pressed powder on top, doesn’t work that well for me. As much I want to stay away from too much pressed powder, this foundation takes me back there many times a day whenever I apply it. 🙁
This would be great for people who have very dry skin. It will not only hydrate the skin, but will also impart a healthy dewy glow on their face.
The coverage of this foundation is sheer to medium. It will not cover any dark spots, marks or melasma. You would certainly need a concealer for that. It also tends to come off your face while re-applying blush or pressed powder during the day, using a brush. When its applied using fingers, you would see a lot of product build up on your fingers rather than face. Its funny! But if blotting paper is used instead of pressed powder, then it gives better results. It also improves the lasting power. It certainly stays for more than 8 hours without any major issue.
I do like this foundation, its not bad, but its not the best for my skin type. It could be really great for those who have very dry skin. Its very light weight foundation, however, with not much coverage. Dry skin people, you all can certainly try this one out!
