Only mascara I wear

I have tried so many natural foundations and this is by far one of my favorites!

Kristy Bowden
Great light foundation

This has been my go to foundation for years. It is light on the skin and my face feels like it can still breathe underneath 🤗

Caity Howes
Beautiful Natural Finish

Gorgeous light foundation. Blends so nicely into the skin and doesn’t feel heavy at all.
Light coverage that is buildable. Great for summer months.
I knocked off one star because I found it a bit drying for my winter skin, but otherwise great product!

Lanyse Redmond
Excellent service

And fast, love the product, excellent packaging.

Great coverage!

Have used this for years! A great choice for minimalist coverage and evening out of skin tones!
