I have been wearing this foundation non-stop since I bought it, it really does stay matte all day! Usually I have to powder my skin every few hours, but since I have been wearing this I have literally only needed to powder my skin once during the day.
This foundation is a gel formula, which I quite like, so when I apply it I pat it into my skin using my fingers then blend it into the skin with a brush - the first time I used it I just used a brush and it looked so streaky! On the box for this foundation it says it has a sheer-moderate coverage, I think it is definitely more on the moderate side, it still covers where I need it too. Because this foundation isn't full coverage I think it is lovely for these summer months.
