Review:  I watched Allie Glines on YouTube review this product and her skin looked amazing.  I have always loved the idea of serum foundations especially its lightweight formula, however, I have found many of them irritates my skin, make my skin oily and/or separate at the end of the day.  This item does not come in a box the cap is sealed with a shrink wrap.  It comes in a squeeze tube container with gold and white coloring and black typography.  It is priced at $11.99 at Target (prices may vary per retailer) which is decent for L'Oreal.  The consistency of this foundation is a happy medium.  Not too thick, not too thin.  It feels very soft and creamy once applied on the skin.  It is easy to blend and sinks into the skin beautifully.  It applies evenly and sets nicely with a finely milled powder.  This did not cause any irritation on my skin nor did it make my skin feel and look oily at the end of the day.  This works with all of my primers which is a plus.  I like that it is lightweight and has a skin-like but also a radiant finish.  This has more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, probably medium at its best.  However, I prefer a lighter coverage so I am happy with a minimal amount.  The foundation is long-wearing, at least a good 8hr work-day and then some.  The concealers that I have sits nicely on top of this foundation.  This has SPF 50 which is good if you are out and about.  I am not sure if this is a good product for the summertime if you have oily skin.  While this made my skin look polished, due to the SPF ingredient, it may not be the best to use for any type of flash photography due to possible flashback.  I hardly do any flash photography so it is not something that is a deal breaker for me.  I love this foundation and definitely recommend it for every day wear.  It leaves the skin beautiful and fresh looking.  If you have combination skin, this may work for you although I would recommend a mattifying primer and powder.  I used the ELF Halo Glow  Powder to set this foundation and it worked great.
