After what seems to have been the longest winter my skin is looking flat and very pale.
I have a few other brands from SpaceNK which I like but they weren't working for me shade wise and felt a little heavy.
I ordered this in Terre Neuve hoping it would be suitable. At first the texture seemed different but after a few days and using a buffing brush with less product than I initially thought I needed I started to enjoy the finish this leaves in my skin.
I don't feel like I am wearing makeup with the bonus it doesn't cake or go orange.
I really am pleased as I had considered much more expensive bases but feel this one will be my daily favourite. I don't have oily skin so it lasts all day on me. I just wanted something to even out my skin tone and this has ticked the boxes for me.
I need to stop thinking I need all the bases I read about and use this until I finish the last drop.

I have traditionally oily skin, and tried this oil free tinted moisturiser on a whim - I'm an NC20 coloring and chose Alaska and the colour match was fantastic. However, I did need to put powder over the top to take the initial shine away, as I felt it didn't absorb into my skin as much as I would have liked. The coverage was fantastic though - a good amount of pigment in the moisturiser and generally one of the best tinted moisturisers i've used before. Would be even better I imagine on not so oily skin like mine!

Great base, a little oily.
As a natural "I'm not wearing make up" sort of base, this is perfect. It has good coverage and hides any blemishes, without looking cakey or too obvious.
My only gripe would be that it is a little oily. If you are drier skinned though, this wouldn't be an issue. Other than that, it has good staying power and a little bit of product goes a very long way.
