How it Stacks up against their claim :
While it starts out a bit yellow for my very fair skin (NC25) it does blend in nicely with a slight glow finish. I'm not sure if it helps with anti-aging as to be honest I'm still pretty young to have much going on with my skin in that respect and my skin is also oily (I sure hope the theory that oily skin doesn't wrinkle as much--guess I'll see as time goes on). Also to be fair I jump around so much in product (as if you couldn't tell from my blog) I haven't used it consistently long enough to see if it would help with anti-aging. I didn't notice it to be especially moisturizing but I do like that its oil free--I always buy oil free products when possible because I do not want to contribute to the oil problem I already have. My skin is very sensitive and prone to breaking out (I'm sure you've noticed that if you read any of my blogs) and I didn't notice this irritating it or causing any additional breakouts.
It is not liquidy in consistency like some products out there, it is similar in consitency to most "regular non liquidy or light-weight foundations". It goes on very natural and smooth feeling--it does no
It blends well and does blur out imperfections. If you're not as far as me will probably work even better.
