My thoughts: I really want to love this, but I find it very hard to use, unlike the PF 8%, which has colour. I´ve tried this in every way possible, and the glow in photos can be amazing, but once it dries, I find it breaks up and looks patch on my skin.

FAQS answered by Deciem on Social Media

Would these Photography Fluids work well under a powder foundation? As with all products, it is important to patch-test them before using them. They work well mixed with liquid foundations but can be applied before powders if desired. 

What’s the difference between this and the Hylamide Photography Foundation? NIOD PF offers a higher concentration of “hue correctors” for more of a cinematic finish. This high concentration is ideally good for mixing with other forms of makeup and for professional photography. Hylamide PF is less concentrated in hue correctors and more in surface perfecting technologies and is a balance between camera coverage and real-life visible difference for daily use. 

Which Photography Fluid 8% of 12% would you recommend mixing with the serum foundation from The Ordinary? You may use either, depending on your preference.

What´s the difference between PF 8% and PF 12%? If you watch the video at the top of this page, you can see that PF8% has colour.
