I always keep searching for foundations that suits my oily face and at the same time doesn't break the bank. And my search led me to this one. I got this soon after i shifted to Bangalore and the weather was on the colder side. By then my skin had become bit dry and had to use some moisturizer. There is a reason why i'm yapping about the weather and my choice...so hold on.
My take on this:
The packaging is sturdy and of good quality. It comes with a pumping mechanism that disposes small quantity at a time. This is one of the great things about them. The pump keeps the product hygienic and the lock that comes with the pump keep it spill free and travel friendly.
There is pretty decent shade variations available. You can check out the pic here.
The foundations gives a very natural and flawless finish. It gives a satin finish instead of a matte finish. The pores look diminished and i have to agree that the effect is like that of an airbrush one. It feels so light on the skin. The foundation is really easy to blend and can be done using just fingers, a brush or a sponge. The foundation provides sheer to medium coverage and doesn't look cakey.
Like it claims, my skin didn't break out or have any allergic reactions.The foundation covers fine line and gives a smooth finish but when it comes to deeper lines and wrinkles, the foundation without a primer enhances them.
The product claims that its fragrance free but i can detect slight chemical-ish smell from it.This foundation is only suited for oily skin even though it is mentioned that its oil free. When the weather is cold or at least chill it works great on normal, oily or combination skin depending on how well you moisturize. When my skin was/is more on the normal side this is a great option. It is an excellent foundation to use everyday. It stays put for a decent 5-6 hours after fixing it with some powder. But on an oily skin it stays for a maximum of 2 hours after which the foundation just slides off giving a greasy and patchy appearance. The staying power is really less on a hot day and on oily skin. Well this horrible heat tests and makes even the best foundation to fail.
The next downside of this product is that it oxidizes and darkens or becomes orangish. The intensity of the darkening depends on the surrounding temperature. The hotter it is, the darker the foundation becomes.

This foundation is great if you are only going out for couple of hours. Skip this foundation if you have oily skin most of the time or if you live in a hot place.
