They sent me all 16 colors in the line and I have to admit I was totally overwhelmed.
Lisa is of Armenian descent and since I've never done her makeup before I'm not sure of her exact skin tone. I don't want to be fumbling about tomorrow picking out the right color for her so I thought I'd put a small amount of each shade on my arm and really look at them. It's tough to tell through the bottle and frankly a few of them looked almost identical to me. Once I had them on my arm I could clearly see the difference. I think they have a good range of tones some with yellow undertones and some with red undertones as you can see in the photos.

The next thing I wanted to test was it's staying power. What if she starts sweating or crying and I'm not there to fix her makeup? So I sprayed water over the makeup on my arm and then wiped the water off with my palm.

Wow! It did not budge guys! Call me impressed. I ended up using the #4 on my own face and have been wearing it for about 8 hours so far to test it out. It's a fuller coverage foundation but I can still see my freckles a bit, it's matte but not dry looking. It really hasn't moved. My ruddiness isn't peaking through at all. I can personally say it lasted an 8 hour day on me and still holding strong.
But wait, there's one more thing I like about this product.
|Matching concealer in the lid.|
It has concealer built right into the top of the bottle. It's a matching color great for under the eyes or for spot covering.
I think it's a good choice on hot days or under bright lights and when I need good coverage that stays put.
Gotta go. I'm off to test lip colors that won't come off when Lisa kisses her groom!
