I am no expert when it comes to makeup, the ones I tried as a teen broke me out so badly that I didn't see the point in wearing it anymore. However, I took a chance and got this when I read the ingredients and realized I probably needed a higher quality all-natural makeup that uses the best ingredients possible. This product didn't leave my face feeling oily or clogged in anyway, on the contray, it feels very light-weight on my face and it helped with the appearance of my acne scars that I've been so embarrased about for over a decade.
I wasn't sure about which color to pick for my skin tone (I am medium beige) so I emailed and the Delizioso girls told me to send in a picture and they'll advise me a color. I did and they recommend this shade, and it was right on! It was great because I am always mixing 2 shades to get my color. The foundation has great pigment which you can build up with more layers and with the pressed foundation and best of all it doesn't look 'cakey'. And it doesn't look or feel like you're wearing foundation at all but still leaves skin looking one-toned and flawless! It has a nice (very mild) scent and worked good for my dry skin, which was a relief cause lots of foundations dry skin. A little also goes a long way too. Will be buying again.
