I have had shocking luck finding a good foundation this winter, with my skin being especially dry and pale. My skin tone is cool, with pink pigmentation so I find a lot of heavy yellow-tone 'paler' shades make me look ridiculous and wash me out. Thankfully this shade - Vienna - gave me enough warmth to look alive and also match my skin perfectly.
Colour aside, this foundation melts into my skin effortlessly and has a great staying power. I don't need to touch up during the day at work, and I could easily get away with not touching up if I go out after work which is a real treat.
Not drying, not oily, this just creates a perfectly balanced and smooth look.
