Let me start off by saying this foundation is one of my favorite foundations. I have been using it for a couple months now and I absolutely love it. I suffer from redness as well as some post acne marks and this foundation does a great job at helping conceal them. I have applied it with both a brush and a beauty blender and definitely like how it applies with a beauty blender more. When it is applied with a brush I think it is much harder to blend out and can look a bit thick on the face. When it is applied with a beauty blender I think the foundation blends out seamlessly. It is a full coverage foundation but when applied with a beauty blender you can either build it up or keep it to a more medium to full coverage foundation. The last plus to this foundation is that it lasts all day on your face. I swear there is nothing I hate more than having to reapply makeup so if I can find a foundation that doesn't wear off super easy I will stick to it. The last thing I am going to say is that I have dry skin and although this foundation may be a little drying it doesn't bother me at all or break me out. The only thing I would say is if you have super dry skin I would test it out before buying it because you may want a more hydrating foundation than this one.
