Packaging: Its packaged in a clear glass bottle and doesn not come with a pump, which is a downer, and you have to be careful with the glass packaging especially if you have butter fingers.

There is a wide selection of colors available in this range so they have something for everyone. I am 3W2 Cashew in this foundation.

Its a liquid foundation and is of medium consistency neither too runny nor too thick. I just take a little on the back of my hand and apply it with a foundation brush on my face. The best thing I liked about this foundation is how easy it was to blend the foundation, literally the foundation blended itself, I was pretty amazed, it spreads evenly on the face and blends like a dream. Another amazing quality of this foundation is that its really light weight, you dont feel like you have makeup on and despite that it provides full coverage.

Now I have hollowness under my eyes and dark circles too , so it doesnt suffice me as a concealer too, but someone who doesnt have much dark circles this foundation eliminates the need for concealer for them. This foundation completely covered all the redness on my skin and made the skin look flawless.
