This formula gave me some problems. Despite that, it is a flattering shade for me, it is kind to my texture, and once finessed it has a beautiful finish. I would definitely call this a finicky product. It is quite liquidy and a little bit goes a long way, so you have to be careful not to squeeze out too much product.
