I bought this shade for summer, and it was just right. It felt like a risk to buy before trying, but this time it worked out. I don't use much to achieve a light coverage, but I like the subtle difference that it makes. Maybe this is just an inevitability of aging, but I don't like how it gathers in my nose cracks and eye wrinkles as the day wears on. I've been using Ophelia for my paler winter days.
