It's a beautiful satin matte finish with a natural radiance. The formula is touted as being weather proof. Performing through, and protecting from, rain, humidity and pollution. I haven't had the opportunity to test out these claims as the humidity here I think is finally abolished for fall. I do find this foundation lasts the day for me with minimal fading.

I enjoy relaxing in the comfort of my own home, with my extensive skin care routines, and a nice facial mask. It just isn't practical for me to arrange childcare and travel to treat my skin right, when I
