Although I am of Northern European descent, I have very olive skin and have never been able to find a foundation that is cool and ‘gray’ enough; most olive foundations are either too yellow or too warm. I also have extremely sensitive skin and mineral foundation is the only kind I can use without problems. I shake some of this into my daily sunscreen before applying to counter the white cast from a mineral sunscreen and it is brilliant. No irritation, a perfect match and it adds some extra sun protection as well. May mix it with the Bianca shade in the winter. I am so thrilled to have found this outstanding product.
