My Opinion:
The only good thing I have to say about this product is the color match, it was perfect, but apart from the color it was just horrible.

When I've first apply this product I fell in love with the texture, it was super light, but after about an hour the foundation has started to separate and oxidize, especially around my nose and chin area (it was not attractive).

I've started to use a primer underneath, and I've postpone the separation time for about an hour or two, but I was still a grease ball around lunch time. I've tried several primers and powders but was still unable to make this product work.

I've got this foundation during the summer when I was about NC25-30sh, but in the bottle NARS Fiji appears to be lighter than Mac NC20. 

After swatching them side by side Fiji is slightly darker than NC20
