Paula Begoun, author of The Beauty Bible and Don’t Go to the Cosmetics Counter Without Me, knows her skin care, so you can trust her products to do what they say they’re going to do. And this new foundation goes on smoothly without caking, gives just enough coverage to minimize pores and soften wrinkles, and lasts all day. If you want a quick-fix look that is polished and professional without noticeably heavy coverage, this is the foundation for you. It’s packaged in a tube so you can throw it in your purse, and it's available in six levels, from Level 0 (Porcelain) to Level 5 (Medium/Tan).
