The coverage is light medium but buildable though not to full coverage. This feels weightless and it perfectly evens out my fairly good skin. I don't have any major acne scars but some redness over top of my cheek bones. In general I do not need high or even medium coverage foundation.
One pump gives me a little too much product and some extra buffing is needed to place this onto the skin. The consistency, again, is light and its one of my favorite aspects about this product. It wears well throughout the day. I don't get oily from it (but we'll wait until the spring and summer to see if that changes) and it sets, which seems like small thing but its not. When patting my face with a tissue, there is no transfer, though sometimes I do still like to set lightly with powder.
There aren't many downsides to this foundation. It does cling to dry patches and yes you do need to buff it in. Over some sunscreens, it does slip around but in general I'm really pleased with it and super pleased to have found a color match. I like that it has SPF25, that it feels and looks like skin and with its non-oil producing properties this has been the perfect winter foundation. I also like to think that the Perfectionist Serum is giving me some added skincare benefits as well though I still use a full skincare routine anyways.
I was looking for a foundation that would give me a good but not cakey coverage and would be soft and gentle to my skin without drying and irritating that. I found Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Makeup with SPF 25 - it's a new and innovative product, and I was very excited to try that. I am so, so glad that I did that!
I love the texture of this make up foundation very much. It's light and soft and goes so smooth on my skin. It doesn't make my combination skin dry and flakey at all and gives me just the right coverage - not very light but not cakey either. And I also love that it has SPF 25 - double benefit to the texture! I have Ivory Nude shade, and that matches my skin tone very well giving not shiny at all but matte finish. And what I also find important - that matte finish doesn't look heavy just the right texture for my skin.
Yes, I will recommend to try Estee Lauder Perfectionist Youth Infusing Makeup SPF 25 foundation, I am sure, you will love that!
