Due to this foundation being super white, I blend it with my regular foundation so I don't look like a mime! My everyday foundation I use is Maybelline's BB Cream. Although I purchase foundation for pale skin, I still find it still way too dark for my natural skin tone. It always seems like I am wearing a mask and it drives me nuts! This is where the white foundation comes in. I actually blend it in with the BB cream. I am no makeup guru and with being a working mom on a busy morning schedule, I don't have too much time to spend with my morning preparations. I am not disappointed with the result. In fact, last week, I had some blemishes and they were well hidden!
The only thing I sometimes notice, I can get a chalky look, that is because it is not blended in very well. To avoid this, I use a rubber wedge thingy that is specifically used for foundation. It works really well. You can get a package of 30 for about $3.00 at Walmart (here in Canada, that is). I also use it for more than one application and they last a good while.

I tried using the liquid foundation on it's own. For me personally, I am pretty darned pale and by using a very, very small coat, it blended nicely. I did hear that on some people, it made them look like the crow or a mime. I stick with mixing it with my regular foundation not to take any chances. I find I get the benefit from the BB cream and the foundation combined,but that's just me. If our bodies and skin tones were made the same, the world would be a boring place.
I also use the compact, in the middle of the day to touch up.
I am quite pleased with the end result.This is me at the end of a busy, long day but right after I used my compact. I like how everything seems to blend in nicely with my natural skin tone. I don't use a lot and i like the results very much. No more mask! Perfect for every day office wear!
