I have been wearing this foundation everyday now for 10 days. It goes on smooth without a 'pasted' on look. The self tanner does work, but not at a very fast rate and doesn't make you orange. You do need to be sure to push down evenly on the top to get the right amount of foundation and self tanner. I did notice my face burning, tingling sensation if I started to sweat while wearing this. Not sure if that's the foundation or the self tanner. It wasn't so bothersome that I need to remove it. I started off with the light/medium and I felt it was a little too dark for me. The light was perfect and I'm not a very pale person. It stays on all day and I have to really clean my face good to get it off. This is my new foundation! First picture is day 1, second picture is day 7. I received complimentary product in exchange for my review. All of my statements are mine and are true based on my experience with Almay.
