Very Good Coverage and Oil-Control

I love it! I switched from Mac and am never going back! I used Mac's NW10, but was seeking something even lighter for my pale skin. MAKE UP FOR EVER's Alabaster(15) is very light with pink undertones, which is great. It also covers all redness, marks, and bumps! The coverage and mattifying effects last long but not all day. You'll have to spring for a high quality (mattifying) primer. All in all, it's a fabulous foundation. Pricey but worth it! Read Less

This is by far my most favorite foundation. I will end up buying this for my kit--I originally bought this to replace the Teint Idole 24 HR Lancome foundation since that formula oxides so much. I use #15 for myself and will buy #20 to mix in some for summer. No issues with drastic oxidation and the formula pairs well with Mist & Fix and Pro Finish. Matte, matte, matte! For more coverage, try mixing in some Ultra HD Concealer. Read Less
