I'm about NC20 and bought this in Beige. It's a little light for me, but I use some bronzer with it. Would probably choose a different color though if I wanted it to match perfectly. I have sensitive, normal-dry skin, quite clear at the moment.First, I used this over liquid foundation, and hated it! It had good coverage, but I got SO caky during the day - my skin just began getting weird texture the longer out in the day it got. My oil broke through sooner than with other powder and I was thinking about returning this to Ulta as it was not working for me at all. Then I tried this powder without foundation under (just sunscreen: Australian Gold Botanical SPF 50, and concealer), and that worked much better! The powder has quite good coverage; I apply it with a fluffy brush - I don't pack it on. For me, it seems like a medium coverage. Without foundation on, it stays on well during the day, no texture issues. Products applied on top blend well too. Looks natural the way I apply it - no powderiness, blends in with the skin easily, stays on well during the dayAt this point, I don't regret purchasing this - I will definitely finish it - all 0.48 oz of it. I don't know whether I will repurchase after or not - t all depends on whether I prefer a powder foundation with a matte or luminous finish. This one is matte, with no glow. You can of course fix that using a highlighter, but sometimes just prefer something with a very slight sheen. If you want a powder with good coverage though, I recommend checking this out.

I bought this for cheap at Ulta on sale and it's a very nice setting powder. It's also nothing special. I got the cool beige and I was hoping for some additional coverage over foundation, which this kind of provides, but I don't see that's it's any better than, say, It Cosmetics Bye bye Pores which is what I was already using. I'll definitely use it up but I prefer the Bye bye Pores as it's less noticeable.

I bought this for using under the eyes because I read it was moisturizing and had high coverage. Both of these things are true, however, this creased a lot under my eyes and it doesn't dry down, which also contributed to the creasing. This concealer has a lot of slip, which makes it unsuitable for pimples because it slides right off. It's good for hyperpigmentation though, as long as you don't touch your face - or you will wipe it off. For the purpose of covering hyperpigmentation I can use a lot of other things too though... Right now I use this for under my nose, where it stays, I don't need much coverage, and my skin is slightly drier than the rest of my face. Thus: I've found a nice for it, but it can be done using other products too. I have the color Ivory, which is a neutral-yellow color, about the dept of NC15 in MAC coloring. This doesn't break me out or clog my pores, and doesn't have any scent, but is heavy on silicones - in case you're bothered by that.

Overpriced garbage. Touted by Shoppers Drug Mart as a great cover-up priced at $56. It actually does the opposite of what its supposed to do. It breaks up into minuscule powdery chunks that settle into the pores and all the lines of your face, so that it rovides no coverage while heightening the look of the pink spots on your skin contrasting them starkly against all the clogged pores and lines that now stand out due to the white splotchy product. I remember once I bought dollar store stuff that looked like this. An $11 cover girl cream cover-up provides more consistent coverage than this. I tried to give it another shot and put it on differently moisturized skin but the effect is the same. I would add a picture if i knew how because its just a comically cheap looking product once applied. Its amazing what gets peddled as "quality" by this company. I basically got tricked out of $56.

I bought this in hopes that this concealer would match in quality and longevity like the other dermablend products I use daily and love. Nope. I used this as my under eye concealer. I swiped some on and lightly blended with finger tip. I thought oh great this is nice and creamy. Well It never set down and after 4 hours it became patchy and my dark under eyes were showing through while the rest of my makeup was looking great. Sorry, I won't be purchasing this again. I wish it had a longer wear time. Perhaps I will use it as a winter foundation for dry seasons.
