I've been putting this review together for the longest time. I had the pictures saved and then it took some time to edit them, upload them and .. fin. I was procastinating most of the time, tho :P.
But now it doesn't matter because I can finally show you this little review of a good product.
The mousse comes in a neat little glass pot. It is quite sturdy, but I'd be afrait to drop it due because it is made from glass.
I have the lightest shade of the mousse and it is sadly still too dark for me (it isn't visible if I blend it in well).
I am a fan of the consistency (like a puffy cloud) and it also makes my skin super smooth after application.
I usually used my hands to apply, because the brush used way too much product for my liking (and the I am sure I could use it all up in less than 2 months with daily usage!).
It is really great for dry skin because it is full of silicones (and thus making those dry patches disappear).

without make up
with just the mousse
set with powder
The coverage is okay, I'd say medium. It leaves a nice matte finish but it is a great consistency to work with. Really nice.
I was completely and utterly in love with this foundation until I realized it is too dark for me (I'm ashamed to admit it took me almost a month, haha). It's not a terrible difference when blended out (no one could actually say, but I know!).
+ Lovely texture
+ Leaves my skin feeling very smooth
+ Matte finish
+ Easy to apply
+ Doesn't have any annoying scent
+ Ok priced
+ Great coverage
- Gets used up way too quickly (as it is with all these mousse foundations)
- Not a big range of shades (I got the lightest and it is still a tad too dark)
