This foundation is great. It's super easy to work with, smells nice, covers well, wears like iron & doesn't break me out. I really don't think I can ask for more. The texture is very thin. The main reason I wanted to post this is to show that the "pale" shade is really not all that pale at all. It's an almost perfect match for my currently tanned skin. I am currently Diorskin Forever Compact #030 and LM Silk Creme in Beige Ivory. This is just a smidge lighter than those two - perfect for winter. Here's a pic and a swatch.
