I prefer to use this by itself for a light adjustment when I don't really want to apply makeup, but also as a medium strength moisturizing primer. This product has a very sheer tint of color making it workable on pale complexions, and I've noticed the lightest bit of color correction when applying the BB Cream; making it a must for hyper pigmentation.
I can easily get away with this product alone thanks to it's medium to full coverage. ELF has somehow made it at least twice as moisturizing as any BB Cream I've tried elsewhere. The color selection isn't fantastic but I can make the Fair-est tone work.
*Extremely Dry Skin Approved
This foundation is the first I've ever finished; I think ever. The color and coverage was mostly satisfying and any issues could be diminished by adding some concealer to the routine. My only issue is how drying it could be. I don't think having slightly dry skin would cause an issue with this formula; but on days my skin was extremely dry, it failed to keep up.
Beside ELF's BB Cream, this holds almost no coverage. I found the formula to be drying and very orange for “Porcelain”. Thankfully, I had to mix in a lavender concealer which combated the tone, coverage & moisture level.
