I have used this concealer for about a year. It has slowly replaced my other favourite concealer (Nars). My actual skin tone is C40 (Nars-Barcelona) with neutral undertones. The trick for this to work for me was to buy it in shade NW35 - the pink tones run much darker, and this shade may even be a fraction too dark for my C40 skin. With other concealers I have a never ending battle with creasing and I was surprised that this one, being so moisturising, performed better than the heavy duty ones. It is medium coverage for me with one layer, and naturally brightens my dark circles. I prefer it to the Nars radiant creamy concealer (Ginger) for texture and comfort. Though the Nars matches my skintone better, this is easier to work with as it doesn't dry so fast and coverage is buildable without EVER getting cakey (it literally never cakes on me). And I can have quite oily skin but still I blend this out to my cheeks, forehead, nose etc and sometimes just go without foundation, it sits so nice on my skin, it has truly become a staple. Hydrating, long lasting and glowy. For the ladies who are medium/olive toned, give the NW shades a go. And don't knock it if you're oily like me, it's really is a versatile and effective product if you get the right shade.

Kinda surprised. Thought this may be a bit too dark or pull too much red on me.. I have fair/med skin with a strong red undertone. This blush is so pretty but must use a light hand. I received lots of compliments. My favorites are Blushbaby and Melba for my warm undertones. Depends on what the season is. This is great for fall/winter and goes great with Brave lipstick. I have brown eyes and dark brown/black Hair. Looks stunning!! So happy I tried it!!

Obsessed. First purple lipstick. Blind buy based on reviews. When I first opened it, it was pretty scary looking. Waited a few days to try it and was put off by it. I just wasn’t use to it. I’m a nude lipstick girl so I was definitely out of my comfort zone. Waited a few more days, and tried it again. It’s love! I can’t get enough of it. Surprisingly wearable and perfect for fall/winter. Edgy but girly and very different from all the other nudes, pinks, and reds in my arsenal.

As I much prefer to buy from cruelty free brands I bought the mini version of this for a specific reason: it fit in my clutch handbag. That said, this is the perfect red for my complexion. I adore the formula, the non oxidizing pigment and longevity. I felt the $10 price was a bit steep for the size however given the amazing quality and color payoff the price is irrelevant. Not too cool (blue reds turn purple on me) and not too warm ( no yellow teeth here!) but an amalgam of both. Russian Red is elegant, classic, sexy and perfect for a black tie gala or worn with a crisp white shirt and jeans. Now, if this were cruelty free I'd buy far more.

Can I say something nice about this brush? Probably not. 1 - It sheds like crazy. Every large MAC brush that I bought sheds badly, each time I use it I end up with black hair all over my face. 2 - the shape is odd. The end is too pointy, I haven't found a proper use for it, an application technic that I say this brush is the best for. I've tried to use it for multiple reasons: - applying blush - it is too tapered, I prefer angled blush brushes; - applying bronzer - too pointy end, the bronzer comes out harsher than I like and need serious blending; - for contouring - it's too large and not that precise; - for a highlighter - way too large; - for setting powder - not bad, but rounded brushes are much better; - for blending - nothing beats Bobbi Brown blending brush. In my opinion, it's only good for a garbage bin. I can't recommend buying a seriously shedding oddly shaped brush if you aren't a makeup brush collector.

I'm super oily and this is an absolute must to keep eye shadow at Bay! And it lasts years....you apply with your ring finger, maybe 1-2 dip/swipes in the pot, then rub on your lid. It most definitely works!!!! And you will have it forever....I use everyday and barely make a dent. Great easy color to wear as base. I've heard the color bare study has shimmer in it.... sounds pretty!! This is just a base though....looks better when you add some eyeshadow. I love the Loreal iced latte color.... great everyday color!

I saw it all over the internet and bought it last week. It's the perfect light brown hue for my light-medium skin. It definitely looks super natural, so if you like a bold eye look, it's not for you. It's great for days where I don't want to make it obvious that I'm wearing eyeshadow: just gives more depth to my eyelids. You can also use it as a sheer tone for an easy smoky eye. I'm a fan of cream eyeshadows, and anything that I can work all over my eyelids with my fingertips or a brush without making a mess or having to be precise. This is just perfect. Love it!

Blushbaby...what can I say? This is a gorgeous rosewood, muted pinky brown blush which I believe is a universally flattering shade. This is my holy grail and I use it all the time, in all seasons. Previously I used UD's afterglow blush in Fetish, which gorgeous as it is, I realised it was slightly too pink. This is more of a neutral blush with enough pink and enough brown to give a healthy flush to the skin. This is the blush that literally goes with ANY makeup look and if you don't have it in your collection...what are you doing? How are you living? The formula on this blush is perfect too. Despite being a sheertone, it is very buildable and will never look powdery or patchy. I use my RT blush brush for a wash of colour and my RT sculpting brush for a more pigmented application. Both ways, this blush looks beautiful and makes me look like I'm healthy and happily flushed. Girls what are you waiting for? Get this - especially if you are warmer more olive toned. This will suit you just perfect!

I bought this because many reviews say this is a great shade for darker complexions, and I'm still looking for the perfect beige/neutral-nude for lipstick collection. Matte Taupe is a tan-nude on me which unlike many neutrals doesn't disappear against my MAC C40 skin tone or make me look ill, and has a bit of a retro '70s look which I quite like. It works well with my staple blush shade (Bobbi Brown Tawny) or bronzer, but sometimes can look a little yellow. The texture is off-putting for me though; it's very matte and very drying. I find I've got to add something on top to make it comfortable. Bobbi Brown's Brownie, another shade I rarely wear on its own, gives a hint of mauve that softens the yellow tinge, and adds a creamy texture and finish to give a more flattering and wearable nude.

I'm 47 yo, combo skin, with no acne or acne marks, and no major wrinkles yet.. This foundation, as well as MAC Waterweight, and Becca's Aqua Luminous Foundation, are the only 3 foundations I have ever liked enough to repurchase over and over.. I like all 3 for different reasons, and I like Face and Body for the satin finish, healthy luminous look it gives, and that it's build able if needed... None of the MAC or Macy's near me sell the larger size anymore, not sure why, but the smaller bottle is $29, and lasts quite awhile for me. I hate foundation, and I don't hate this, or the other two I mentioned. I prefer to apply this with MAC's #187 duo fibre brush(Sonia Kashuk brand from Target sells an amazing duo fibre brush for under $14) as I feel I get the lightest, most luminous, outcome, with plenty of coverage, which is important for my age and skin type. Definitely recommend.

I find this works best if I apply it with my fingers so the product gets warm and a creamy consistency. Covers my acne scars well enough and good for my under eye area. A little goes a long way. Other concealers I have tried do not have good coverage like this does.

Even though I constantly am trying new reds from different brands, I always go back to Ruby Woo. Perfect matte classic red, very flattering on my NW18 skin . The only thing I don't like is how drying it is in the tube , which makes it slightly hard to apply since it doesn't glide on as smooth as I would like.

See my initial 2 star review at the bottom before I figured out the best way to apply this foundation, and updated my review and rating from 2 to 4 lippies.Since I had recently finished my bottle of MUFE HD foundation (which I enjoyed but I always want to try something new) and read so many glowing reviews for this makeup coming from people with all different skin types, I decided to try it out. I have fickle skin - acne-prone, oily-combo but dehydrated and I've been having a lot of problems lately with matte foundations ie. EL DW, Tarte Amazonian Clay, looking flat or cakey or separating on my skin and sticking to dry spots or blemishes, but many times satin foundations can just look greasy or transfer too easily. Always looking for that happy medium and this foundation sounded great as my skin has cleared up lately and I was in the market for a lighter weight foundation. This makeup is described as having light-medium, buildable coverage with a natural finish which is exactly what I was looking for.**UPDATE:** So I promised that before I threw in the towel on this makeup I would watch some youtube videos and see if I could find a better application method that would get this foundation to work and low and behold I did! When I first tried this foundation, I was using the regular, spread it on and rub it in with fingers and/or brush method that I normally use with foundation but that does not work with this makeup. By "working" this makeup into the skin with a brush and/or beautyblender sponge, it achieves the perfect satin sans greasy finish and keeps it from transferring so easily, although this makeup still definitely needs a setting powder. To apply: After shaking the bottle, I dispensed a few drops on my hand and applied a few dabs to the center of the face, smoothing outward. To blend the foundation in, I found this is best accomplished by using a tightly packed synthetic foundation brush - the brush I have and the one the lady in the youtube video used is the Real Techniques foundation brush, which is an inexpensive but lovely brush that I highly recommend and use with all my liquid foundations. I must stress that in order for this foundation to look good, you MUST first buff and and then press it in so it melds with the skin. After thoroughly blending with my brush, I used my beautyblender dupe with a light tapping motion to further dab and press - not rub! - the makeup into my skin. Once this is done, then it is safe to add another layer of makeup which will give slightly more coverage. Coverage can go from sheer-light (one layer) to light-medium with two layers. The woman in the video also set this makeup with MAC Mineralize Natural Skinfinish pressed powder which looked phenomenal - it gave her complexion the perfect satin-matte glow that I was hoping for when I initially tried on and set this makeup, and another beauty blog mentioned that these 2 products used together were a match made in heaven. I did exchange the too pink NW15 I'd initially bought for NC20 and purchased the Skinfinish Mineralize pressed powder in Light Plus as well to add some longevity and polish. Yes, it is pricey, but I am also not necessarily suggesting that you purchase both; I do not yet own the Skinfinish powder and this foundation still looked beautiful, so the Skinfinish is not imperative in making this foundation look good, but being the makeup junkie that I am I did go ahead and purchase both, so I will update once more when I receive it.Changed my rating from 2 to 4 lippies, took one off because this foundation definitely takes practice and time during application to get it to look its best and it is certainly not a foundation that you can quickly slap on and go on days when you're running late, but I'm sure with practice the application will become easier and faster. *IMPORTANT: Would definitely recommend new comers to watch or read a tutorial in applying this makeup because there is a slight learning curve, but once you do it does indeed give a beautiful natural finish. However, just to re-iterate: if you are normal-dry skinned this makeup is a yes, if you are oily-combo but looking for a natural finish again a yes, HOWEVER oily-skinned ladies looking for a matte finish, or anyone in the market for a med-full coverage foundation, this is NOT the one for you.*ORIGINAL REVIEW:I really really wanted to like this product but it simply did NOT work for me and here's why:- Unfortunately, this foundation felt AND looked extremely greasy and slippery on my hands and face. I REALLY did want to get this to work, so I tried a few different application methods -- with a mattifying primer, with a regular primer, with fingers, with a brush, but nothing made any difference. It looked like I had just dunked my face in crisco. - I applied my favorite setting powder, which I was hoping would tone down the greasy sheen and leave me with a satin-semi matte healthy glow (I use Kat Von D Lock It loose powder which has a beautiful finish that's not cakey or drying at all), BUT instead the powder caused the foundation to cling to my dry spots and look cakey which has never happened before with this amazing powder that I have used with several other foundations. So my makeup went from greasy to cakey while still being greasy.-Foundation was not only too greasy for me but also transferred and rubbed-off very easily. I work full time and need my makeup to have decent lasting power. -Coverage for me was not the light to medium buildable coverage that I was hoping for, instead it hardly seemed to cover anything and layering it did not work. My skin has been pretty clear lately so I was looking for a foundation that was less than full coverage that I could still see my skin through, but I do have some minor discolorations and some very mild scarring and this did not cover anything at all. I ended up having to load up on concealer which I hate doing.

I've been using this for over 10 years and I can't believe I haven't written a review yet! I love this spray. It sets my makeup, takes away any powdery-ness, makes everything melt into my skin for flawlessness, keeps my skin hydrated all day. I switched to the Evian spray because I wanted a fine mist spray but immediately went back to this because the Evian spray made my face dry. I'm not a huge fan of how it sprays out but I can live with it.
Are you sure this product is discontinued?
