OMG, where have you been?this is the best of the best, very very high quality highlighter. perfect pure sheen not glittery, on the pan this looks pretty normal but on the face.. this is just amazing. can't recommend enough, very pretty champagne color, which is perfect for my nc15 skin tone. blends perfectly suits every makeup. staying power is also phenomenal. price is overwhelming but what can i say this worth every penny. Definitely, on my top 5 highlighter list.

Honestly, I couldn't figure how to use this as a foundation, but as a concealer, this is amazing. I have acne scars that I need to cover up and I use the spot concealing method to cover them up. Using a fine point brush, this works perfect. I only need a grain sized amount on my hand to achieve this: a tiny bit of product on the brush will cover 2-3 spots. Then I take a blending brush to blend out the edges and set with a powder. The coverage lasts all day.I have been using this and Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage for a while. After trying both, I prefer this product over LM Secret Camouflage because this doesn't look as dry on me. If you have oily skin, you may consider LM Secret Camouflage because this is oil based, and might be a little oily. However, on my super dry skin, this works great and I have had no breakouts so far.I'm NC20ish and SX06 seems to be a good match for me, but I am going to get a shade or two darker to color correct the acne scars.If you want to get samples, you can get them at Camera Ready Cosmetics. If using as a concealer, even the sample size should last you a while.

I've gone through some samples of this and it sounded like a foundation that would be quite wonderful! But I found it to be quite mediocre. For me, it didn't offer any type of ethereal glow. It's just..... meh. It's a bit watery (which is fine with me) and sets fairly quickly. I've tried it with various primers and various methods of application but it just didn't do it for me. Almost seemed a bit drying....?? When I used a liquid luminous product under this, it looked fine, which surprised me because I had thought adding any type of luminosity would take this foundation WAY over the top! But that wasn't the case, whether I was in the sunshine, or at work under harsh lighting, the luminous addition helped some (RMS Magic Luminizer, Manna Sheer Glo as well as Mac Strobe).There are definitely drugstore foundations that provide a nicer, smoother finish for my aging skin (I like Rimmel Lasting Finish 25 Hour Breathable liquid foundation and was so surprised to find it's not too matte for me, not cakey at all, and it really does hold up all day and night while providing a nice, healthy look! Also like the Bourjois 123 Perfect liquid foundation.) I love trying different foundations and there are so many other options out there for far less money, that offer quite a nice finish on mature skin, but this one was surprisingly unremarkable.

I've tried many high end primers. So far, this one has been the best for my aging (40) extremily oily skin. I put it on this morning and I sent the day outside in 30c weather. I's now almost 5pm and my makeup still feels freshly applied!!! I blotted once, but I didn't really need to. It is also very comfortable to apply, it comes in a pump and slides easily on the face unlike Becca's matte primer which although keeps the oil away, feels horrible when you wear it. I'm wearing it with a foundation that does not wear well - usually in a few hours this foundation has slid all over my face into a greasy mess but it's still staying in place with this primer.So worth the price!!

Interesting and frustrating product. Liked the idea of a very pigmented cream foundation that spreads out for a natural yet buildable coverage that does not look dry or cakey on my mature, sensitive skin. Saw it being recommended by a Youtuber who recommended it as the perfect full coverage, natural foundation for mature skin. So, My first mistake is how I picked out the color. I went to Sephora and swatched it. Thought that the SX08 would work with my NC45 skin. Boy, was I wrong. I got that little pot home, used a tiny (1/2 pea size) drop spread it over my face and looked like a yellow ghost. It turns out that the product is so heavily pigmented is looks much darker in the pot and still much darker in a swatch then when it is spread all over the face. So, I then researched it on line and found some very good color indexes to follow. Turns out that SX11 or 12 are closer to my NC 45 color. So, I got SX11. Much better color match but I find it difficult to spread (I tried with several brushes, including one for this foundation by the same brand, fingers and sponge.). But, I was not ready to give up on this yet. So, after some experimentation, I found that the best, and easiest way for me to use this is to take a tiny amount (like size of a pen head) mix with sheer foundation (I am using it with Mac Face & Body, but also good with Flower Illuminating foundation, BB and CC creams). It ads coverage, but no heaviness at all. It is a perfect way to take my sheer-medium foundations and make them more full coverage. The foundation looks dewy and fresh but it has very good coverage. The little jar costs $48 USD and is at Sephora, and all drugstores. It looks like a lot of money for the tiny pot but it will last a very long time given the tiny amount you need to apply. This took a lot of work to make it usable, but I do like the result. I will also try mixing with lotion and/or sun block for summer. I deducted some lippies for the work that went into this but would recommend for its versatility and good results on skin.
