With this foundation, the important thing is to apply immediately after applying moisturiser and to do the face in areas rather than dotting foundation all over and trying to blend. If you don't do both of these things this foundation can be extremely hard to blend, grabs any dry patches and looks patchy and flaky.
On the plus side, the Frame Fix Cream Foundation wears brilliantly. It has a built in primer and lasts all day, and applied correctly it gives a very good finish (no shimmer, just a satin-skin-perfected finish.)
I'm still not convinced 102 is the right shade for me, but I don't think there is a perfect match for me in the new formula. The 100s are too peachy (although they are the 'neutral' shades) the 000s are far too yellow and the 200s a bit too pink. I think I might do better with the 201, but for how often I wear foundation I don't intend to purchase that shade to see if it is a better match.
As I mentioned in my post on the new Jo Malone Vitamin E Day Creme, this is a very good moisturiser to use underneath the Suqqu Frame Fix as the silicones in the Jo Malone give it just enough slip to help the Suqqu foundation glide on smoothly. Although I love Suqqu cosmetics, I find most of the skincare a little too heavy on silicones and alcohol for my skin (which is typical of many Japanese skincare ranges.)
