Always a Fan of Fashion Fair!...I am so happy and excited that Fashion Fair is back and it’s at Sephora. This color matches my skin so well and it looks so natural....beautiful finish foundation that feels lightweight...This is a lovely foundation. I use my Sephora Pro foundation brush to apply it in order to create a light-medium coverage. the foundation doesn't even move when I use my Pat McGrath Concealer 31 under my eyes (to brighten). in addition it does not love when I've used my Becca Ignited liquid highlighter and the Milk Cosmectics liquid blush shade Beyond. the coverage lasted about 6 hours. when I've went to one of my local Sephora stores I've received sooo many compliments. thank you Fashion Fair for catering to deep/dark skins tones in such a lovely way!!!

This is a great deal BUT the shades in fair light were a bit all over. I like the variety and the coupon makes it worth it, but about six shades were way too dark and one of my Sephora shades was incorrect. ...I love the idea of this, but I ordered the light and many of the samples I received are actually in the "fair" range. Light and Fair are two very different categories.
