Not great, settles and gets oily after a while

I tried this initially with a beauty blender and it went on horribly on my face. I was using a lot if product as my BB just soaked it up, and then it would oxidise on my face with orange patches. So I gave up.

I tried it again with a buffer brush instead and it worked a lot better, using a lot less product and no more oxidisation. But, it definitely settles into wrinkles too much and after a few hours becomes oily and seems to slide off. There are better coverage foundations in this price range.

I recommend using the Serum version instead with a good concealer.

Not really suit for oily skin

the coverage effect is good...
able to cover the redness and some dark spots...
feel matte right after application...
but after few hours of application, the face will become very oily...
if you need a high coverage foundation like this, suggest to use it together with loose powder in order to reduce the oiliness after few hours of application...

Awesome shade range, terrible coverage, patchy

I really wanted to like this foundation. After all, it comes in a ton of shades, and it's inexpensive. I found a great shade match for my skin, but after wearing it for several hours, I noticed that the foundation became extremely patchy, and the coverage seemed to have melted from medium to barely-there. If you don't want or need a full coverage/medium coverage foundation, this might be great for you! Alternatively, if you have dry skin, this might work really well, as it's a very hydrating and dewy foundation. I didn't experience any breakouts from this, but it didn't provide the coverage I want, so unfortunately, I had to stop using it.
