As soon as the package arrived, I tried this foundation without prepping my skin. It was a bad idea. It didn't spread well so I had to use a lot of it. (I just got too excited to try it on...) Anyway, I tried it the next day with my skin well-prepped. I didn't need a lot of the product. It really spread well. While I was applying it, I felt it looked too yellow on my skin but it looked natural and fit my skin tone half an hour later. I also bought a lighter shade for my mother who is almost 70 and she loves it! I do love it on her skin! Also, I asked the support for picking a shade for my skin tone and they responded quickly. I know I will be purchasing again.
