This was in my 2009 X'mas haul, i.e. I had this in my possession for nearly a year but only started to use it recently...
I've almost forgotten why I got this, until I've open it and this stuffs just smells deliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicious (vanilla). I didn't use it earlier because I found this foundation too rich and it feels kind of heavy during the summer, since the climate is dryer now, this foundation feels really good on the skin.
You only need a tiny bit of this, I usually dip my brush lighlty on the pot and I have enough product for the whole face, this will feel heavy if you use too much.
Regarding the shades, I have this in ACT I which is already the lightest shade, so if you are lighter than NC25 this might not work for you.
Overall I think this is a satisfactory foundation, but just not amazing.
