Foundation Files: Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20

The Omorovicza Complexion Perfector SPF20 has been around for a while, but recently the brand decided to repackage it, and I think they may have slightly reformulated it too.  It’s still available in three shades – Light, Medium and Dark – but now it comes in…
