I have been on the hunt for new foundations and I recently decided to try this out. I stepped out of my comfort zone with this ones because I really don't go for matte looks. The difference with this and many other matte foundations is that this Is not 100% matte. Which I love. The only way this looks flawless on my skin is if it is applied the day I exfoliate. It is definitely one of those foundations that cling to dry patches, acne ETC.... When applied though often exfoliating I get flawless results.
