I didn't have high expectations for this foundation but to my amazement it was perfect. I have oily skin, and while it didn't give me a matte finish it didn't make my skin super oily, the end product was a satin finish. I ordered the shade Pecan (my skin tone falls between medium to deep, so this shade was just right.) This foundation blends well, it's build-able and has a medium to a full coverage.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
