Maybe because my skin has some imperfections is quite difficult to cover it up but anyway you have to put a lot of it. The effect is nice and if you have a very pale skin like me it goes perfect but putting heavily. I think that the compact one is better as I tried it before specially when you have a combination skin and maybe the liquid can make your face itchy nothing really serious but I think that the skin feels more comfortable with the compact.
I like this foundation as it is very good at smoothing over areas of already good skin. It is not so good for covering scarring or blemishes however as it is too thin to be effective in that way. The colour is also not quite porcelain, making it a little too dark still for those of us with very pale skin. I will however hang on to it for summer use as the colour is better with a bit of sun.
