Read on!

So I hope you watched the video. Overall, I’m impressed with the foundation. It can definitely match up to my foundation that costs about 10 times more – which is like I said, concerning – why spend that much when you can get the same or similar result for way, way less, right? For the concealer though, I’m not so much of a fan. It does the job of concealing, but it feels sticky and caked a bit. Although to be fair, I might have put a lot so it caked a bit. But I did remove most of it earlier in the video and it still got cakey. Sure it was spreading smoothly at first, but it got sticky and cakey after the foundation and later on in the day. I think I can still use it if I don’t plan on putting on foundation. Maybe just spot-conceal and then pressed powder for an everyday look.
