Help with use - Go darker? Must mix in luminizer?
Received in Nude, a color match. Problem is I see almost no difference at after application (it is very sheer - 2 pumps, I see nothing). Do you go with a darker color, or must add in the luminizer to get some effect? I do like natural but this is really au natural, so much that it looks like I have nothing on at all. I am wondering if I go with a darker shade, and or mix in luminizer if that will give the effect of something on my skin. I do want some coverage, I have excellent skin but some redness areas. Suggestions? I do like the product as it feels like I have nothing on my skin, but do not like looking this bare (I may as well not use)

Don't spend your money on a darker one. Keep the one that matches and add extra coverage with a different foundation or a concealer where you need it. Using this all over will highlight the great parts of your skin, plus add extra hydration and no need for an additional SPF!

I have had the same problem. I think I get slightly more coverage with a primer. I also use a bit of concealer before I put on the foundation. If I still need a bit more coverage for redness I use a bit of powder foundation (BM) on top.
Hope that helps, that's how I've made this foundation work for me. I'm not sure if I'll buy it again when it runs out. :-/

I don't think it will matter if you go darker or not, this stuff is sheer no matter how you slice it. I'd mix it with a higher coverage oil base foundation to get a higher level of coverage, the illumining base is not going to get you more coverage, just a glow. I had the same issue when I got the foundation, I use it now for a base or mix with other foundations. I do feel its moisturizing and with the weather changing my skin appreciates the extra moisture.
