I have been searching for a dupe for Laura Mercier cream smooth foundation and thought I would try this foundation. With all the reviews and blogs I have seen I really thought that I would like this foundation. Unfortunately I do not like it. It is an oil base foundation which leaves a shiny finish and if you have an oily T-zone then you would need extra powder. It is a very light coverage foundation that stays on for about 9 hours. 24hrs is out the window. I tried to build the coverage but I did not like how it felt on my skin. Definitely feels heavy. I will use this up using it as a quick to go foundation but would not repurchase.
