I have experienced some"cakiness" with my other foundations but not with this one. This gives you a natural finish. You also don't have to put a lot. The secret to creating a perfectly flawless look is to build on. Another thing that I love about this foundation is the fact that it lasts for a long time. I don't even use primer with it and it still lasts for a long time. I believe it's because it's gel based.
As always I use my MAC 187 Brush with a stipling motion to apply the product.
My only crtique is the fact that it's kind of hard to blend, but the stipling brush helps a lot. Spraying the brush with MAC's Fix+ can also combat that "hard to blend" issue.
