I thought I would fall in love with this stuff. And, to some extent, I did. I love that it is sheer and relatively easy to put on. It doesn’t cover up dark spots but gives a slightly more finished look. But mom didn’t give it the two thumbs up. Frankly, I understand why. The overall effect is a little matte and feathery – if that makes any sense. The blending doesn’t give that overall natural look. Next time I am going to try the Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer.
