It gives a sheer to medium coverage, a natural finish (not too shiny, not too matte), and truly is water resistant and stays on all day. I use this with the Tarte Provocateur Pressed Powder on top, and it creates the most flawless, shine free finish I have ever had! ...Also, I feel I use an adequate amount to get benefit from the SPF 20 claims, but being that I live in NYC and don't tan, I'm OK with only a little coverage. It actually is water resistant as well, but I definitely am sure to wash my makeup off before I go to bed.
