How I find it:
I was hoping this would be my shade because I’ve never tried this before and it came out quite good. It has SPF 15 so I would always use a sunscreen under this. It comes with a sponge and a mirror when you open the case and then a separate area for the foundation similar to a cushion compact. The foundation is in a solid balm form and I just the product up with the sponge provided or even a kabuki brush and apply it onto my face.

It blends out nicely on the skin and is quite moisturising. It gives medium to full coverage and the finish is semi-matte to natural. You can easily control the coverage by just applying less or blending it out evenly.

Overall: I didn’t know what to expect but I quite like this. It is on the moisturising side so it’s great for winter and I love how it is not heavy or too dewy. The shade is a little pale on me but it does oxidize a little so when I blend it out and apply some bronzer, the shade looks pretty good. The downside of this would be the application. I use the sponge that it comes with but these are usually hard to clean properly so I used a fresh one every few uses. Otherwise, I don’t like dipping my beauty blender into the product so I use my fingers to pick up the product and dot on my face then blend it out with a sponge. Definitely travel friendly and great to put in my handbag for touch up.
