    "'The lighter texture, the better' is my foundation mantra. Come summer, I'll skip the stuff all together (and only use it to spot conceal) and use a tinted moisturizer like CliniqueFIT Workout Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 40." — Carli Whitwell, managing editor

    "This product checks off everything I desire from a foundation: portable, undeniably luxurious and takes my skin a step in the direction to looking like Penelope Cruz (i.e. even-toned and occupying the perfect space between matte and dewy)." – Victoria DiPlacido, beauty editor
