I saw this in the sale section, and read the negative reviews (and its low rating). Yet a few women kept saying they didn't understand why as they love it. So at that price I decided to try it out. I have been a MAC girl my entire life, until this!! This is absolutely beautiful! It's like second skin! It goes on like a dream (I've used both my fingers and a brush), stays put, zero shine (and I ALWAYS shine after a while). It's matte but not cakey, and still there's something dewy about it. I can achieve light coverage or full coverage (I'm a public speaker and it does the job for that too!!) This stuff actually gives me a youthful glow!! So today I bought 2 more of the 2 shades I need (summer and winter skin tones)..... and regret not just buying 4 more of each! If you're MAC and NC 20/25 you'll likely need Paula's shade 4 or 5. I bought shade 2 as well to blend with the others as I am quite fair until cycling season begins in the spring. Paula, I'm sorry I didn't discover this sooner!! Please don't discontinue, it is AMAZING!!
