I tried this foundation out in shade Shell, which is the second lightest one. It’s fair-beige with neutral undertones. It might be just the tiniest bit too pale for me once blended out, but  it matched pretty close.

In terms of texture this stuff is REALLY matte. It does blend easily into the face using fingers, but after a minute it feels like it kind of sets and isn’t as blendable anymore. It didn’t look chalky on me but it was so matte that I felt a little dry almost. I don’t think a super matte finish is the most flattering for skin over the age of 25 or 30, so for me it’s not the best.

It does do an excellent job of keeping oil at bay though. I wore it all day and no oil came through whatsoever.

Overall: This might be a great foundation for those who like a very matte finish and/or have oilier skin.

Availability: Sephora.

Pricing: $42.00 for 1.35 oz.

    I could most definitely use this in summer! I have such a hard time keeping my face from melting in the heat ;)

    I have dry skin so this foundation would not be for me!

      It probably wouldn’t work for me as my skin is quite dry too. The idea of super-matte is great though!

    I definitely need something more illuminating because my skin is so dry.

    I really want to try this brand, and since I have oily skin this may be a winner for me!

    I need to give this a try. My skin has been out of control oily with all the summer humidity!!!

    Hmm, that sounds a little too matte for my taste! Its very light though, so I’ll have to keep that in mind for a friend.

    I actually like matte foundations. I use Erno Laszlo’s Shake It Tinted Treatment all over my face & then use their Absolute Finish Foundation in the middle portion of my face.

    I purchased this and really love it. I’m also 24, live in a hot/humid climate, and I have combination skin. No weird dry spots/flakey skin with this foundation. I also like the coverage. I would say it’s medium but has potential to be full coverage, if desired. I also like that when I touch my face it doesn’t feel heavy or cakey, just smooth. I definitely wouldn’t recommend it for someone with dry skin. I just think it would emphasis lines and dry spots and make them look worse than if they weren’t wearing any foundation at all! For color reference, I’m an NW25 and I was matched with “Buttercup”
