I have this in the shade 902. This imparts a soft glow, a bit of a matte look, but lightly moisturizes without any heaviness. It also adds a bit of glow. I personally wear this without foundation for a soft glow and the filtered effect of gives my skin, but it wears wonderfully with foundation as well. Highly recommend.
I bought this in 904, which is supposed to be color correcting. I have a light-olive toned complexion. I think this could work on many skin tones. This product feels amazing and works well as a primer to lock in other makeup. The reason I gave it 3 stars, however, is because it comes off a bit too shiny for me. There are actual sparkles so it's not pearly, which I prefer for a dewy complexion. So, I only use this on my cheekbones.
