my fav...Love it...Finally splurged on a higher end foundation, and came away disappointed, while it is obviously much higher quality than a drugstore foundation, I found the coverage to be excellent, but the way it stuck to my dry skin and acne made it unusable....This is the best mineral makeup I've found even over the Merle Norman line.I've been trying all different mineral makeups due to very sensitive skin I've developed this past year.I mix a bit of medium tan with medium beige for a bit more color that still looks natural.
