I use this product over a light mosturizer, mineral concealers and a primer. It can last for about 8 hours without the primer, but requires a touch up if you don't. This doesn't have a whole lot of coverage so it won't be good for those who need it. I wanted something that was very light and natural looking and this was perfect for me. The product also has a lot of the light-reflecting minerals in it, which is the result of the "youthful, luminous finish" it is known for. As many other reviews have shown, a GOOD BRUSH is required for this product... the brush it comes with won't do anything for you. I love it however, for applying my under eye and blemish concealer. The bristles are super soft and perfect for those applications. Again, I wouldn't recommend this product for those who need intensive coverage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
