It goes on medium coverage and is buildable to full. I'm an oily skin person though it's calming down to combination with age, I guess. ...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!!!
