This foundation and I go way back--all the way back to 2008 when it first debut on HSN. At the time I was using a product called The Men Pen and after the demonstrations on TV, I figured I should give this product a try. So I went to Sephora Online and purchased the foundation in shade 175 as well as the HD Primer and Powder among other things. Well when I got it in the mail, I was underwhelmed. I now realize that that was because I had never used a liquid foundation before. (At that time, I was a major rookie and had no idea how to apply it.) So I sent the foundation and powder back but kept the primer.
Fast forward to January of 2012. After a trip to Sephora at Towson Town Center, I decided to give this product another try and this time I bought shade 177 and I fell in love. It's a perfect match for my skin tone and makes my skin look youthful and airbrushed. Since it is quite expensive, I try to save it for special occasions, however I don't see a day when I'd be without it.
