Products:
This formula is a medium to full coverage foundation with a more liquid texture compared to most silicone base foundation. The texture is thin and light weight but does build up for fuller coverage but also easy to sheers out as needed. It does hug the texture of the skin which people that have more texture to their skin have noted and I can see every micro-folds in my skin surface texture. Which is creepy but I found using a primer fixes that if you're going for full coverage. I actually like the look of having texture to my skin so that I don't look like my skin is a mask.

Applied sheerly for a bit of correcting this looks so natural in this thinner state on the skin. And I feel like everyone with dry to oily skin should at the very least test this one out.

Colour:
Snow is a pale skin tone that leans on the pink side slightly.
Ivory is a fair olive tone yellow.

Wear: I got 16+ hours wear before I noticed fading without a primer or powder before I notice the product breaking down.

Packaging: A simple glass jar with lid and pump. The glass jars do have a different in text on them as Ivory was the one I got in the Initial launch and Snow came about 6 months later when I got it from Sephora.

Coverage was good. I took out my redness and unevenness. My blemishes are corrected in tone as well. My freckles are still visible but faded as well. It caught on my serious dry patches (blemished that were drying out) but I didn't get any weird dry patches on my skin, which is awesome! Also, my skin was flaking on my nose from a sunburn it's not the foundation crusting up there.

Verdict:
This one is really interesting to me because of how sheer you can apply it and still get the coverage you need. It however doesn't have the blurring properties of most silicone foundations because it's more of a Liquid than Gel based product so I recommend using a primer to even out your skin texture because this is soo thin it hugs the surface of your skin tightly and make you natural texture more noticeable up close.

That said when I was dry testing this in a sheer application no one knew I was wearing foundation.... it just melded into my skin.
