Seems a touch light but other shades seemed too dark. Goes on smoothly and has good coverage. Like that it has the “Miracle Broth” ingredients. ...Yes the shade range is terrible, especially because we are almost in the year 2022 and La Mer certainly needs to do better with that, however I was able to chat with a Sephora Employee who recommended the Shade Ecru based on my other foundation matches and it’s pretty darn close. Slightly dark but not dark enough to leave a line on my neck or look weird, it’s almost perfect.

Pressed Powder
