MY OPINION
This is Avon's newest foundation and I had to try
it specially in this hot humid LA weather.
I got this one on sale for $9.99 Avon always has good
deals were you get the products cheaper.
Lasting Power-I do my makeup at about 8a.m. and at 5p.m. that
I was out of work my makeup was actually still pretty good.
Coverage-The coverage was good enough for me, I set it with my
MAC MSF Natural and it looked flawless, perfect combination.
Texture-I have to say I really like thicker foundations as
 I feel they give more coverage, in my opinion.
The texture in this foundation is is not too thick, but its not watery
 like the Avon Ideal Shade foundation I tried.
I did not experience caking with this one either.
Comparable-When I saw this foundation I thought Revlon's Colorstay,
Maybelline's 24Hr SuperStay or Estee Lauder Double Wear.
Unfortunately it still does not meet up to any of these,
but it does have a pretty descent staying power and coverage for a daily basis use.
Color Match-I got this in Natural Beige which was a bit darker for me, but I have been able to use it when I set it with a lighter powder.
This is the only thing about Avon products that I dislike, I have to buy 2 to 3 products to actually achieve my right match.
For reference I am an NC35 on Mac's Studio Fix fluid Foundation.
Once I find the perfect match I will let you guys know the color.
Did I mention this has a pump I love foundations with a pump.

  1. I notice you say it's not watery & provided good coverage. Does is supply comparable coverage & longevity as Revlon's ColorStay(which I love)?
