I've tried so many foundations! I have been looking for something that doesn't look or feel cakey, as well as, having great coverage without the worry of breakouts. I have sensitive skin so I didn't want liquid foundation because it makes me breakout, but I like the coverage of a liquid. This foundation was certainly the answer! I love that I can do a quick touch up at work in seconds if I feel a little shiny. Its so quick and easy. I've tried "Bare Minerals" and "Sheer Cover," but I really like Smashbox a lot better!
