As you can see, the shade “LIGHT” is a tad lighter than my natural complexion, as I put in 3 layers to get enough coverage to even out my skin tone.
It has a strong peachy scent that can be off-putting for some, but pleasurable for others. I like it.
SPF – SPF is 10 which I find lacking.
Texture is creamy but spreads easily thanks to its silicone ingredient dimethicone. If you apply too much it has a tendency to settle into your fine lines. Especially to someone like me who’s more on the “aging” side of the spectrum.
Coverage is sheer-light. Do not expect this to cover any spots, acne, redness, or what-nots. Think of this as a tinted moisturizer to make your skin look better but not perfect.
Longevity – A decent 3-hours for the coverage, but the moisturising feeling lasts the whole day.
Recommendation – This is perfect for tweeners or early teens who are starting to play-around with makeup. Or adults who prefer looking polished and natural. Having used this for 3 weeks, I didn’t notice any complexion lightening or anti-aging but it’s good enough for what it’s worth 🙂
