Eh, not terribly impressed
I have this in both the light and medium, and it's simply okay. Nothing fantastic, but not the worst face product I've ever tried. They impart a decent amount of coverage and I can build up colour, but this comes at the expense of a nice finish. A sheer layer leaves me with a greasy shine, to the point where I look like I've smothered my face in Vaseline!.So as you can imagine, layering it on to add more coverage just makes me look even shinier! I can counteract this by packing on the powder to set it, but it's a bit of a fuss.
It does feel lovely and light on the skin, I'll give it that. But unfortunately this means it just slides off whenever I start to perspire in the slightest. I'd been using a Missha BB cream (Asian brand) and that has a thicker texture and hardly budges when I sweat, but both Garnier shades instantly start sliding around my face in the heat. It's mostly a problem on my chin which is unfortunately where I need the most coverage. It looks like I have a beige-y milky substance floating around on the skin. :| Not pretty.
Incredibly dry skin tones, and people who don't sweat.at.all.
