The foundation is oil-free and does not contain SPF.
I personally like the simple sturdy package for this foundation. Although the body of the bottle is clear, it is still not as easy to gauge how much foundation is left inside. The bottle comes with a large top cap and has a pump to easily dispense the product.
In the back is a very short and simple instruction to shake before using the product. When you shake the bottle, you'll hear a clicking noise similar to the one in nail polishes. It also shows that the product is made in Paris, France.
For those interested, below is a list of ingredients in the foundation. It does have silicone, talc and mica so those with allergies to these ingredients might want to reconsider.
Typically, I find that 1 small pump does a great job of covering my entire face. When I first tried this product as a sample from Sephora, it broke me out right away. I was pretty upset but gave it a second and third try because I loved the medium coverage it provided. Once I finished the sample, I purchased the full product because somehow, my skin had stopped breaking out from daily usage of the foundation.
My favorite method of applying this is using a MAC 130 brush to stipple and then lightly sheer out the foundation. I have used the traditional foundation brush before but it didn't give a natural finish in comparison.
The color matches my skin very well and isn't too yellow or nor does it oxidize on me. The texture is a thin liquid that is a bit runny. This is a good foundation to use during the spring/summer months since it's light and not too heavy on the skin. As with most foundations, this also has a strong fragrance but is not bothersome once applied.
Below is the foundation stippled on my hand using the MAC 130 brush.
Here it is completely blended in. Note that my hand is rather dry because I just washed it with soap and haven't had a chance to put on moisturizer.
Overall, the foundation is light, build able, and provides a beautiful medium to full coverage. Using a stippling brush, a sheer layer evens out my skin and the acne scars are barely noticeable with spot stipples. It also photographs beautifully to give a "my-skin-is just-that-even-and-clear" type of effect. However, a huge downside to this foundation is how it performs on dry skin. This will accentuate every single flake, nook and cranny for those with combination, dry, and severely dry skin. Unless you moisturize really well, this foundation will simply be a nightmare. I have combination skin and on days when I have dry patches, I have to moisturize twice as much and lightly stipple the foundation on those particular areas.
Bottom line: Great foundation for oily skin but not recommended for dry skin. It gives a beautiful finish if you have the correct base. Moisturizing is an absolute must for combination and dry skin for those who want to try it. Is it worth the $40USD price tag? Yes, if you're willing to put in some work. No, if you want a non-fussy foundation.
