I have to admit, when I opened the sample I was a little scared. The tint seemed a little deep and dark, and I figured it would not work with my lighter complexion. However, with careful application this product goes on much lighter than it appears, and it feels smooth. It didn't feel sticky, either. The finish isn't too opaque, so don't use this expecting complete coverage. In the summer months, this could be a good product. I would consider purchasing it, although I find the price point a bit steep.
