It had semi-sheer to medium, buildable coverage, but the way the formula worked made it sheer out more readily–and it was designed to be a sheerer product, so this is as expected!–so it was hard to “overdo” the coverage as a result. This particular shade seemed a bit more emollient than others in the range, so it took a little longer to dry down and seemed a smidgen harder to diffuse and blend out evenly for me.
I had better luck applying it with a stippling brush rather than fingers a third time, which gave me a better diffusion of color. If I was able to get it to apply evenly and blend out well pretty quickly, it worked well over bare skin as well as most base products, but if I had to fuss with it when it was mostly dried down, it was more prone to lifting base products or lifting from itself. This shade lasted well for eight hours before fading visibly on me.
